Kristin & Jack are an amazing couple. Meeting in high school, the two have been together for 13 years and supported each other through thick and thin including a big move away from family to Red Lake for their respective professions. When I was first contacted by Kristin to document her wedding in Ottawa back in January, we met for coffee with her mother to discuss the upcoming nuptials. I got the opportunity to hear about her rustic barn wedding vision, all the plans she had and hear the anticipation regarding her and Jack's big day. Even though the wedding wouldn't be for another 10 months, I was already excited to shoot the event!
Straight out of pinterest heaven, the wedding was held at the Herb Garden, a beautiful and natural venue that included charming barn structures and a whimsical labyrinth full of fresh herbs. Their ceremony and reception would include many personalized and DIY touches that showed Kristin's impeccable taste and the love her family and friends have for her and Jack. Such touches included a wood plaque specially made by the Herb Garden's owner and officiant, lawn games, and favours and reception hall decorations put together by the groom's very own mother Cindy. The goblets, table runners, flower arrangements and signs were breath taking - she did an amazing job! The two have an incredibly strong bond with each other and their respective families and it was a pleasure being able to capture all of the special moments they shared together.
I would like to thank the lovely and talented Amy Sturgeon from Amy Sturgeon Photography for second shooting the groom prep and ceremony and capturing some amazing photos. I also had an awesome time working with Kristin & Jack's creative videographer, Emily Beekmans. Her story-telling abilities are phenomenal!

Congrats to KT (KG now!) & Jack. May you have many amazing adventures to share in the future!
