Karen & Craig

On May 19th we had the pleasure of photographing Karen and Craig's wedding in beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake. We've known Karen and Craig for years (we all used to work at the Shaw Festival). Craig worked in the Information Services department and Karen was in Marketing. It's funny, Amanda actually remembers when Craig and Karen were about to go on their first date. Craig was telling Amanda that he was pretty excited and a little nervous at the same time. And now, years later they are married!

Congratulations you guys. It was a wonderful day and both your families and friends were wonderful. The speeches were all from the heart and I must confess even I was getting a little choked up too.

Here are some shots from the day. Come back soon for their slideshow.

Karen looks amazing don't you think?

I'm a sucker for flower girls. Isn't she adorable?

Karen and Craig at the alter.

I love it when I catch the bride glancing over at me.

The wedding party headed over to the Botanical Gardens in Niagara Falls for the formal pictures. The tulips were in full bloom!

Karen and Craig looking oh so incredible.

Sharing a moment.

I don't even know what to say about this one. They make our job so much fun!

I love the energy in this shot. She was being so good all day and I think she just needed to let loose for a minute. She actually was trying to hide from me here. She dove behind a chair and started giggling.

Another little cutie. Kids all dressed up make for great pictures.

This image was taken right before they went to the receiving line. Amanda had the great idea of covering them with Karen's veil (which was super long and beautiful!). We had the hotel staff at the Pillar and Post (who were amazing to work with) open a side room that wasn't being used and found this awesome window. What a great moment!

Speaking of great moments, no one told us that Elvis was on their guest list! This is George Biggar of Biggar Sound their DJ. He is an incredible singer! He also renewed their vows (as Elvis) at the end of the night to the lyrics of Elvis songs. The best DJs are entertainers who get people up and dancing while keeping the evening fun and George was awesome.

As you can see they were having a great time!

So that's it for the first bunch of images. Check back soon for their slideshow.

Congratulations Karen and Craig!
