I’d love to take some time to share a really lovely wedding with you – with a couple that’s just so gosh-darned adorable and obviously in love.
Christa and Jorden are super smitten together and it’s downright heartwarming to see how giddy they make each other.
They had beautiful oudoor wedding in Newcastle, Ontario.
It’s always a risk to do an outdoor ceremony (you never know what kind of weather Mother Nature will decide to put out), and the forecast did unfortunately call for thunderstorms that day.
Christa and Jorden spent a good deal of the morning checking and double-checking their weather apps as they got ready, and we all had our fingers crossed as we prepared for the ceremony.
It started to rain pretty hard immediately after that so we found a sheltered porch to do family portraits (while my assistant Jonah so selflessly held the umbrella over me and the gear off the porch as she got pretty drenched) – but everyone was in good spirits and it was all good fun.
It was my absolute pleasure to photograph this easy-going, totally adorable, super nice couple. Christa and Jorden, your wedding was beautiful, and your love is even more so. Thank you for having me be a part of your big day! Best wishes for you both in your new wedded life!
And now, I’d love to share some reflections from the bride and groom themselves!
Tell us a bit about your dating history, and how Jorden Proposed:
We had been together for 7 years before Jorden proposed. He proposed during the May long weekend in Bala – he made me breakfast in bed and proposed when he woke me up.
How did you feel on your wedding day, and what was your favourite moment?
Jorden was very nervous and excited. I was just really excited and giddy. Our favorite moment was watching everyone having an amazing time on the dance floor. So happy.
Any advice for engaged couples planning their wedding?
Keep calm, have fun planning, don’t sweat the small stuff… it’ll be your perfect day no matter what.
Also some of the most important advice, and I got it from you, actually, is to stop and take it all in! That was something that really stuck out to me, I did this several times throughout the night, I’m glad I did. Thanks to you! Xo
