When Cassandra reached out to me earlier this year to photograph her and Greg’s wedding, I was super excited to get my first Labrador wedding on the books! And from the moment we were greeted by Greg and his groomsmen, I knew that this was going to be the perfect “introduction” to a new city for us!
While Greg and his brothers pulled themselves together, we captured them poking fun at each other, measuring out the perfect length for their suspenders, and cracking some cold ones! When we arrived at Cassandra’s parents house, her mom welcomed us in true East Coast fashion– like we were family! After Cassandra slipped into her gorgeous gown, we made our way down to the beach and set Greg up for the First Look. After being escorted to the waters edge by her father, Cassandra stepped up behind her groom and told him to turn around so they could share a few minutes to themselves. We then played our way through the Bride and Groom portraits, while Link and Aries (the couples beautiful kids, I mean dogs!) tried to photo bomb their way into all the photos! As guests started showing up, Cassandra made her way inside to wait for the ceremony to start.
Finally, with the guests all seated and the sun shining (and the tardy Marriage License on the premises!), Cassandra was escorted down the aisle on her Fathers arm, with dog-of-honour Aries leading the way, to where Greg stood waiting to marry the love of his life. Afterwards, we raced the weather (we mostly beat it…) to do family portraits, before making our way to the tented reception, where guests were treated to delicious food, entertainment in the form of wonderful speeches, the always-popular Shoe Game, and a surprise Screeching In! Following the cake cutting and a beautiful sunset first dance, Trev and my time came to an end, though I suspect the party continued well into the night!
A big shout out to Shelley with Inspired Events for your meticulous planning and decor, and to Carissa and her team for the delicious food. To Meghan, Melissa, Kate, Brad, Jeff, and Jerome– thank you for making our time with you all so fun! To Beryl and Dean, thank you for warmly welcoming us into your home! And most importantly, a huge thank you to Cassandra and Greg for allowing us to share this beautiful day with you. Wishing you both a life full of happiness!
