This wedding was of an intimate ceremony at Callander Community Centre. Normally I don’t travel so far for a wedding. But I’ve been receiving a lot of inquiries for countryside weddings this summer. Now Destiny & Alex do have kids. And there wasn’t much financial support coming from their respective families. So this event was pretty small. The Callander Community Centre did provide an outdoor sheltered area for their ceremony and empty hall for the reception. Empty being the key word. All the decor was DIYed by the bridal party.
The grounds of this venue was absolutely beautiful. However we did their portrait session at a nearby hiking trail. Having a bride who was ok with getting her dress a little dirty, made the whole process more entertaining. The bridal party was also super helpful with organizing elements and keeping the couple laughing throughout the entire process.
The civil ceremony was short and sweet. The bride had an assortment of flower girls. One of whom was her daughter. They exchanged vows and got to make their marriage official. Afterwards, we did use the decorated alter as the backdrop for their family photos.
The reception was very well organized and fun. The bridal party had their grand entrance. There were lots of fun speeches. After the cake cutting, we were able to disappear for some sunset photos. And ended the night with a sparkler exit. Which luckily finished early, as I had a 4hr drive back home from Sprucewood Winery.
