Lindsay & Hong were married at Le Belvedere in Wakefield. Let me just start by saying that this was a day that none of us will soon forget. This crazy day started off with muggy sweaty weather, showed some threatening skies, let loose the heaviest downpour I have ever seen DURING the couple shoot, presented the brightest, complete rainbow that I have witnessed, and finally just turned into a beautiful evening. It was a roller coaster that only ever seemed to get higher and better. Maybe it was more like an up escalator but that sounds ridiculous.
I was excited to shoot Lindsay and Hong’s wedding about 10 seconds after they walked into the studio last year. Lindsay is artistic and funky and Hong is high energy and nothing but positive. After seven months of bad weather and scheduling conflicts, we had their engagement shoot in the Gatineau Park and that was where I first got to see them as a couple. That shoot was great so the stage was set for another very exciting day…
Hong and the boys started out on the basketball court for some fate tempting but nothing was twisted, bruised or broken. There was an endless stream of sweat for the rest of my stay mind you. The girls arrived at the cottage at Le Belvedere around the same time that I did. It was a treat to have plenty of time to shoot until the ceremony started. The ceremony was unsurprisingly gorgeous thanks to that awesome Belvedere view and we also had a pretty great preview of the weather that was headed our way. We somehow managed to get in all the family photos, a bunch of wedding party photos and made it to the Wakefield Bridge just as the skies opened up. Despite having to share the bridge with what looked like a little piece of a Grateful Dead concert, we managed to get everything we could there before driving into the biggest, brightest and strangely well situated rainbow possible. More photos at Le Belvedere followed by a super fun reception and all ended just right with gelato and poutine.
