Jess & Ryan ~ Ancaster Mill Wedding

Last weekend I had the opportunity to celebrate Jess & Ryan’s wedding with them on a beautiful misty October day. Though the clouds looked like they may give out on us any moment it was no match for the sunshine that radiated from Jess’s beautiful smile as she prepared to marry Ryan. With a few minor touch ups ready and the dapper groom anxiously awaiting his gorgeous bride excitement filled the air as we prepared for a touching first look. Their warm smiles and radiating love made this couples first look an absolute knock out. Embraced in each others arms we captured a few quick photos before sweeping Ryan away to greet guests at the chapel. With all of the nerves over the ceremony was a lovely exchange of love and peace as these two pledged their lives to each other. Following the ceremony mother nature held out for us and allowed us to wander the ever gorgeous grounds of the Ancaster Mill umbrella free. Knowing how much Jess & Ryan prefer to laugh than take serious photos we kept the mood light and airy and after a quick break for delicious our d’heurves we made our way down the steps to the base of the waterfall to capture photos in front of the classic waterfall as well as the more secluded mysterious edge of the river where these two held on to each other in a beautiful sea of fall colours. Afterwards we headed inside to take in the grandeur of the beautiful fall full of love and family who traveled from far and from near. After some sweet speeches and a wonderful meal Jess & Ryan were ready to share their first dance as a married couple as well as a sweet dance with each of their parents. With lively laughter and lots of love this room was ready to celebrate for the rest of the evening and it is my wish that these two have that wonderful celebration each day of their lives. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day. Best, Jessica
