2014 Vacation: Wedding {Rehearsal and First Look}

These ones are of the rehearsal and "First Look" {story to that down below}.

They did a walk-through twice, and I filmed a little bit the second time--if I can figure out how to post that, I will because there were some really sweet moments.

Jake and Ema did a great job on the song, Here is Love.

Beth's dress was simple, but beautiful and the pin added the perfect amount of sparkle.

One of my favourite pictures of Beth and her maid of honour, Debbie.

Back to the dress...

The morning of the wedding, Beth, Debbie, Kellie and I headed to Fanshawe around 12:30 or so. The photographer was to meet them there at 1:30, and Kellie and I were going to set up the tables outside the barn. Once we got onto the grounds, we stopped to put up signs to the wedding:

I really wish I had taken pictures of the other ones--they had super cute sayings :D

Anyway, after Kellie and I had finished setting up for the reception, we decided to walk around the park and visit the different areas. I had gone there several times as a student and there were lots of memories.

We started on the tour, and as we walked up to the school house, I caught a glimpse of Josh through the trees and he had the blind fold on.

We didn't want to intrude, so we went into the school house, all the while stealing glances to see how everything was going to play out.

Once we left the school house, we came up to a clearing and we had a perfect, we decided to be "paparazzi" and crash the shoot ;)

On her way to surprise her man!

Waiting patiently...

Awww... can have the ribbon :P

They're such a beautiful couple!

After this shot, Kellie said, "Uh, Elsa? Are you going to be in their photos??" Ha! I was so focused on Josh and Beth, I hadn't noticed their photographer moving closer to them :D

Maid of honour, and best man! I loved their outfits.

Heading to another part of the grounds...

Pretty sure they had seen the huge balloons!

2014 Vacation: The Wedding, Part 1

On my last visit to Ontario, back in November, I had already decided to plan my next trip around Josh & Beth's wedding. I'm glad I did--it was absolutely beautiful, and I got to see some people which I didn't know were going to be in town!

There were many details to this wedding that made it pretty special, and I just want to warn you--there's lots of photos! The first set I'm posting will be of cleaning/setting up and rehearsal as well as the little details.
