Gods Mountain Estate Wedding: Laurell + Trevor. Part 2.

June 30, 2010

weddings

After breakfast with friends & family, a morning of prepping wedding flowers for the bridal bouquet & the dinner centerpieces (all found in the Part 1 blog post from last week) Laurell & Trevor were ready to say, “I do.” The wedding ceremony took place at the back of the property, behind the gorgeous bed & breakfast on God’s Mountain Estate. Laurell, who chose to enjoy the day with all her girlfriends by her side but without “bridesmaids,” got ready in the penthouse suite of the estate. She was a bundle of joy. Excited. Made me excited to see her excited. She was amazingly relaxed as well, doing her own make-up because, “I just can’t trust anybody else to do it the way I want it.” Cute. ;) It looked AMAZING and she definitely knew what she was doing. Laurell had two dresses for the day, the first a strapless, mermaid-style dress by Barbara Allin, an acclaimed Canadian designer. The second, a dancing dress for the evening by Melissa Sweet.

Laurell’s father came to the penthouse to get her minutes before the ceremony. I always love the moment when the father of the bride first sees his daughter… and sees his daughter about to become another man’s bride. What a beautiful thing. Laurell & her father walked arm in arm down the short aisle to an acoustic song performed by Laurell’s friend and bandmate Steve. Beautiful. Trevor waited anxiously at the front, his face breaking into a smile as he saw Laurell approaching. The ceremony was full of giggles and Laurell wiggling with excitement. It was so personal, so intimate with only forty guests gathered around. After being pronounced husband and wife, the couple spent the afternoon mingling with guests, crying tears of joy with family, enjoying a wine tasting by the local Pentage winery and marvelling, “We just got MARRIED!!!”

(Stay tuned for Part 3 including portraits and reception details.)

    These are really so beautiful and timeless. I love the ceremony shots with the beautiful soft background. Makes the ceremony take the spotlight and everything else fade in the background. like it should be.
