Heidi+ Ryan | Elegant Kingston Wedding
I second shot Heidi + Ryan’s wedding for Alicia (Alabaster Jar Photography). Alicia is my favourite person to work with. She is the master of directing couples and posing them in a way were they feel amazing about how they look on their big day. She had a little speaker with throw back Backstreet Boys songs playing the whole time we were shooting portraits. And even though it was REALLY REALLY cold (you suck late fall, before it snows, crappy weather) I actually thought I was going to throw up at one point Allicia put everyone in such a good mood. This bridal party was hands down the most hardcore for braving the raining and cold.
As second shooter for the day one of my jobs was to photograph the boys getting ready.
Heidi is such a stunningly gorgeous bride and her dress was breathtaking on her. When I look at photos of the two of them and their bridal party I think of elegance and style, grace and class. We took photos on the steps of the Kingston court house. There’s one photo of Ryan and his groomsmen where Allicia has them lined up and looking like they could be on the cover of N’SYNC album. And you need to see the extravagent chandeler at the reception hall.
Their wedding meal was my second favourite ever ( the kids menu chicken fingers and fries at Kari + Matt’s wedding will always be my number one favourite wedding dinner!!!). There was unlimited salad and buns.. of course there were other food on the buffet but I’m a SUPER picky eater and can’t usually find many things I like to eat at weddings. I think I refilled my plate three times. This was a highlight for me.
The moment that I'll always remember from this day is Allicia praying over us before we drove to the church. It was a really special thing for me. I always pray on my own before any shoot that I do. Just that everything would go smoothly and I would catch all the things that will make my clients smile when they see the photos later and look back on their day. But praying with someone else was extra special.
