This past Saturday was the wedding of Jen and Alex in Oakville, and considering that October can be a risky month for weddings in Ontario, I have to say that we were actually quite fortunate. Yes it was incredibly windy (especially by the lake!), and yes it was drizzling here and there, but the umbrellas added a little touch of the season, which will definitely make the wedding even more memorable for Jen and Alex in years to come!
We went to take pictures in downtown Oakville in the Trafalgar and Lakeshore area. The guys got there fairly early while Anastassia was with the girls who were getting their makeup done, so we had lots of time to hang out, take groomsmen pictures, throw stones in the water, and enjoy local hot dogs. We even got asked for an interview by a local TV station as we were casually strolling around It’s too bad we don’t have video footage, because one of the groomsmen handled the interview like a boss(you’ll see a picture below)
Hot dogs were immediately followed by Starbucks (how else?), and some more pictures until girls came to join us. Since weather seemed to be getting worse, we had to be VERY efficient with time, so we quickly went through the bridal party pics to ensure we have at least have 30 “rain-free” minutes with the B&G.
The location that Jen and Alex picked was really beautiful. It was a very secluded section of the waterfront (and rain ensured we were alone!) so we got some really lovely frames of the two of them.
Ceremony and reception took place at the beautiful Glen Abbey golf course. It would have been nice to spend some time outside there, but rain was a pretty convincing deterrentAs the night unfolded, the crowed partied away to various tunes (including some traditional Croatian folk pieces) and we ran the party booth in the foyer as well.
Anyhow, on to the important part – the pictures! We just finished the teaser, so it’s time to share some of our favorite frames – Enjoy:
