little-italy-weddingLeanna and Danny’s early autumn wedding at Lago on Dow’s Lake was one that I was really happy to be able to photograph. I was almost too swamped to be able to take it on, but I am very glad that I did! Not only are they really great people to know, full of kindness and laughter, but they hosted a very heart felt wedding for their friends and family. There were lots of games during the dinner and reception to keep their guests laughing and at the end of the night, they launched paper boats carrying their wishes for the future into Dow’s Lake. If only I could have also gotten them into some paddle boats… little-italy-wedding little-italy-wedding little-italy-wedding little-italy-wedding little-italy-wedding little-italy-wedding little-italy-wedding little-italy-wedding little-italy-wedding little-italy-wedding little-italy-wedding little-italy-wedding little-italy-wedding little-italy-wedding little-italy-wedding little-italy-wedding little-italy-wedding

Sure it rained during Kaileigh and James’s wedding at Vignoble in Gatineau, but who cares. Rain never ruined any weddings I have been to.
