From an autumn engagement session to a summer wedding, Nikki and Ryan were both lucky have the rain evade those days. Yet being overcast made for beautiful lighting for their outdoor wedding at Cave Springs Vineyard. Because the ceremony was there, it was only fitting to continue the reception at the Inn on the Twenty in Jordan Station, Ontario.
The day started off a little interesting. There was a power outage in the town and due to the restaurant’s back-up power source, Nikki and the ladies got ready there, rather than in the suite. That didn’t stop the smiles and laughter going. After documenting some candids, I followed-up with Ryan at a hotel close-by. Yes, that IS the same bearded Ryan that you saw in the engagement session. He cleans up well, doesn’t he? Thereafter, the rest of the day was history.
The grounds of Cave Springs Vineyard provided such a beautiful backdrop, I could have been shooting there for hours! The galleys were filled with fresh grapes and the vista was awe-inspiring.
Despite the way the day began, the reception at the Inn was exquisite! Never have I tasted such flavour-full steak in a long time. All the speeches were so entertaining, it was easy to catch everyone smiling and laughing. And with such great family and friends, the dance floor never emptied even after I left.
Thank you, Jacky for the endorsement … and Nikki & Ryan for the laughter and smiles and trusting your mom! Haha!
