I had the pleasure of photographing Abe and Karen’s wedding for the fabulous Amber Richmond of Amber Richmond Photography on Saturday.

Their wedding started out at her bridesmaid’s parents home in Dundas, ON, a picturesque little town where most of the bridesmaids grew up.

Karen’s sister Laurie really enjoyed doing her make-up. Check out the awesome earrings, because Laurie made them!

Karen and Abe’s nephews, who also happen to be Amber’s sons, were the ringbearers and their niece was the flower girl.  She is 14 months old and doesn’t walk yet, so the ringboys did a great job pulling her down the aisle.

I always love this moment of ‘goodbye’ and ‘hello.’

I went up on stage and hoped nobody would notice me, but Karen and Abe did.  Ah well, I like how this photo shows the guests.

Karen grew up with 5 siblings!

We made sure we got lots of photos of Karen and Abe in that oxymoron of terms ‘Alone together’, before the rain came pouring down.

I love the architectural arches on the McMaster campus.

Just after the down pour.  I love the purple Birkenstocks with purple nail polish.

Karen and Abe’s friend, Pearson Ross sang a song he composed specifically for their wedding day.  I love how they reacted as he was performing-so much that I decided to make an animated gif out of it!  Please check out his music here:

Congrats again, Karen and Abe! Thanks so much for having me be part of your special day. Thanks to Amber as well for having me photograph your brother-in-law’s wedding!
