The early spring day boasted beautiful blue skies and puffy white clouds. In Alex’s family home, she put on some final touches to her makeup before stepping into her wedding gown. The day she’s been waiting for. Her mom and grandmother help her zip the dress and she puts on a pearl necklace that both of them had worn on their own wedding days. In her ears, she places her other grandmother’s earrings. All a beautiful tribute to the important women in her life.
With a love for spring flowers and the fresh start that spring promises, Alex and Tim wanted to enjoy a First Look at the local gardens. Led by her bridesmaids, Tim was brought to Alex wearing a blindfold. His expression showed his deep love and joy for his bride. We worked our way around the early spring puddles and were even graced by the presence of the deer that make the park their home before heading to the chapel.
At the Queenston chapel, Tim greeted all of their guests as they made their way inside the beautiful building. A ceremony full of words of love and devotion, they continued the family theme and had their fathers join them to sign the papers, then had their moms join them in a tree planting ceremony. They exchanged vows and rings – Tim’s handmade by himself from wood when they realized his would not be there in time for their wedding.
In the true unpredictable nature of weddings, during a photo of Tim with his three brothers, the brothers decided it would be a great photo op to pick up the groom. One brother did not go unscathed and found himself needing new pants when his split open.
The Pelham Town Hall was such a great venue for their reception – beautifully decorated with personal touches throughout, the food was excellent and the speeches were heartfelt.
After sneaking out at sunset with my sweet couple, they spent the rest of the night dancing with their closest family and friends. Congratulations again to you both! Wishing you a long and happy marriage xo
