It’s no secret that I freeking love getting to photograph winter weddings. They’re always so stylish, unique, and have a je ne sais quios making them endlessly classy. Jaclyn and Lar’s December wedding at Queens Landing in Niagara On The Lake was no exception, and I have to say, I had been looking forward to photographing these two again alllll year after their fall engagement session the year before!
First off, you’re going to melt when you see Jaclyn’s amazing wedding dress. She decided to go the non-traditional route with her dress (she’s a girl after my own heart) and rocked a stunning forest green sequined number that oozed silver screen goddess sex. Paired with Lars’s Fred Astaire style white tux, together these two looked like they’d stepped right out of a film noire movie. Needless to say, I spent all day grinning behind my camera lens and making excited noises after every photo set.
Despite the cold, they were game to take photographs outdoors, which is one of the best parts of a winter wedding. The December landscape looks so different and beautiful, and it’s the perfect excuse to snuggle up nice and close to each other to stay warm!
Their wedding was the perfect combination of sophisticated yet relaxed. Their style was out of this world, I mean, they could have gone to a red carpet party post-wedding and fit right in. Their ceremony took place in the ballroom as the sun went down over the lake outside, and friends and family took part in a Hershey’s kiss kissing game that had everyone in stitches throughout the reception. By the time I left everyone was rocking the dance floor the way only family can, and I drove back to Toronto with that cozy happy feeling that I always get from intimate weddings that are really just all about the love.
