Almost same time last year, I finally got to meet Lindsay and Rob for a fall engagement shoot. Up to that point, we have been corresponding but never saw each other. We started spending time together and I knew this was going to work just fine between us and more so, we would enjoy the shared experiences to a high extent. The couple chose the quaint Inn on the Twenty in Jordan, Niagara for their wedding day and they clearly were so very inspired to do it. The day was glorious, with impeccable temperature, blue sky painted with a few puffy clouds here and there and of course, with that warm, golden afternoon fall light which makes everything glitter. The most amazing natural backdrop for a couple of people so in love with each other, continuing on their path of joining their lives in high commitment. Beautiful, just like their families they are coming from. Not only I was impressed with the two of them, but loved their parents, grandparents, siblings, everybody else they chose to surround themselves with and share such memorable moments in time. A pleasure to witness, an honor to create some visual records for years to come.
It truly was a joy to be there with them, among ripe grapes hanging heavily in vineyards, a symbol of such abundance which I hope will pave their future.
Be merry always! M
Helena and Andrew could have not chosen a better day to get married. Usually, mid April in Ontario is not the warmest and greenest of times, but this year, due to the unusually warm temperatures, nature came to life sooner than what we are normally used to. What a sight Jordan Niagara was that day! Full of colours, blossoms, exploding with life! I was absolutely delighted for the couple as I knew their imagery would turn soft and dreamy. Very much in line with who they are: artists at heart, people who love and play music. All in all, this ended up being a symphony of delicate soft tones and much love in the air.
The wedding party was a lot of fun, we walked around the Inn on the Twenty and it was not hard at all to find photogenic spots.
Laid back, having fun with each other and enjoying each second of their experience, Helena and Andrew were amazing to work with and be around.
Dear Helena and Andrew, congratulations one more time and hope you have thoroughly enjoyed a romantic time in Paris! Hugs, Manuela.
Needless to say that I always enjoy myself whenever I go back to photograph weddings at the quaint Inn on the Twenty in Jordan, Niagara. I was therefore super happy when Julie and Louis told me this was their choice of a wedding venue. I recall sitting down with them and connecting over topics like travel, finding the best place to live in, etc which made me feel like we almost knew each other prior…so interesting to have such moments happen. Even more reassuring for the shared experiences to follow. We had an amazing engagement photo session at the Beaches (I will post it soon, I am slightly behind with my blogging) and an even more beautiful wedding day together. Even though the sun was harsh and no clouds seemed to want to appear, we worked with it and ended up having fun around one of my most favorite spots: Cave Springs.
After that we continued on at the Inn with Julie and Louis amazing family members and friends.
Dear Julie and Louis, hope you will always recall the sunshine on your day and will hold it in your hearts forever! Best, Manuela.
