From the photographer:

Stephanie and Randy’s beautiful brunch wedding couldn’t have been any more perfect! From her gorgeous flowers, to custom designed Barbara Bates dress I know it was exactly as Stephanie had described all those months ago on our very first phone call. We spoke for over an hour that day, having never shared 2 words before that point and just connected on what she wanted her wedding to be about. Her love for her wonderful partner Randy and each family and friend who joined them to celebrate. True love can really be found at any age, and it is so very clear that Stephanie and Randy have now found theirs.

Fun Casual Wading River New York Wedding

There’s nothing like a fun soiree to help you get through the mid-week slump and this laid-back elegant New York wedding is just the event to do it. It’s brimming with vibrant colours, vintage lace details and plenty of festivity on the dance floor. So without further adieu I’ll hand you over to photographer Casey Fatchett to share with you the details of this fun-filled event.Multi Colored Pastel Wedding Parasols‘Kelly, the bride, went to high school with my wife on Long Island. I recall my wife saying, “She’s deadly with a rifle…” (apparently they were on the riflery team together). When Chris and Kelly moved back to New York after both getting their PhD’s in English Literature in Toronto, I was happy to meet with them about photographing their wedding. They have to be one of the most laid back, casual, calm couples I have ever dealt with. The wedding reflected this perfectly! A casual ceremony (with lots of obscure literary readings) and lots of playfulness with the bridesmaids parasols and fans (which were necessary as it was unbelievably warm). The reception featured Chris’s grandmother serenading the couple with a rousing rendition of “Stand By Your Man” and my personal favorite moment, The Flower. The groom and groomsmen surrounded the bride and well…created a dance ‘flower’ with her at the center. It really defies description.’Real Wedding New YorkMulti Colored Bridesmaids Paper FansCasual WeddingsVintage Lace Parasol BrideFlower Girl Vintage ParasolCasual Vintage Wedding New YorkNew York Wedding Vintage Lace ParasolCasual Elegant Wedding CakeCasual Outdoor New York WeddingCasual Elegant New York WeddingCasual Wedding Purple FavorsCasual Fun Wedding DancingWedding Reception SerenadeCasual Outdoor New York WeddingWading River Wedding

Summer Okanagan Wedding by December Photography

You immediately know when a photographer is excited about a wedding it is bound to be something special. Jessika from December Photography was so thrilled when her friends Ash and Melissa asked her to photograph their wedding. This gorgeous Summer affair took place in Kelowna, British Columbia – a beautiful spot in the Okanagan lake area of Canada – where they all grew up together. Naturally, being a hometown girl, Jessika knew all the best spots to capture her beautiful friends and share their magical Summer wedding. With a casual elegant vibe and a dusky colour palette of white, purple and soft grey, the whole party looked amazing against the stunning lakeside landscape and aqua blue backdrops. Thank you Jessica for sharing Ash and Melissa’s beautiful day and for capturing it all so perfectly.Summer Okanagan WeddingReal WeddingsSummer WeddingOkanagan Lakeside Wedding PicturesBlue Grey Casual WeddingSummer British Columbia WeddingSummer Wedding KelownaCasual Wedding KelownaSummer Casual WeddingOkanagan WeddingOkanagan Wedding Lake

From the Bride: Ash and I had a really hard time picking our venue but it was worth all the effort in the end. We went to numerous spots to view their facility and check their prices but unfortunately just did not feel “wowed” until Manteo. We loved Manteo and both knew it would be a perfect place to exchange our vows.  From the landscape to the amenities offered, it was fabulous.  We both wanted a classy but not too hoity toity wedding.  We had decorators and they did a wonderful job spicing up the room for our reception.  Our chosen colours were purple, brown and yellow . . . probably more my chosen colours. We included a candy table, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all ages.  Also my friend was kind enough to drive out my most favourite cupcakes from Calgary, Crave!  We ordered specialized Jones soda for favours and are keeping some to remind us over the years of our day.  We did do the centerpieces ourselves to cut cost as fresh flowers were quite pricey. We got supplies from a few stores in Calgary and just kept them really simple.  Planning everything from afar was really our biggest challenge but amazingly the day was perfect and flawless.  The best thing really was that all our family and friends were there to celebrate with us.  It was the best day.  

Thanks Melissa. It’s evident your hard work really paid off. Congratulations to you and Ash on a wonderful wedding.

Casual Harbourside Sydney Wedding

There is something very special about a casual wedding which exudes natural elegance – and this one is no exception. This beautifully executed yet understated casual Sydney wedding is set harbourside in leafy Jubilee Park.  Brilliantly captured by Jonas Peterson it is relaxed and full of personal style from beginning to end. I love how they managed to incorporate a subtle nautical beach theme along with gorgeous vintage inspired touches. In fact, there are so many well thought out details I love from the vintage pill boxes that held the wedding rings to the timber oars featured at the ceremony. Then there are the pretty pom pom garlands fringing the trees and the groovy cheese stack that is displayed with it’s own pretty flag bunting. Every lovely detail is totally cool, unique and irresistibly charming.
