wasaga beach wedding: rhonda & brian

It was a dark and stormy day. The tail end of Hurricane Earl had hit southern Ontario and a powerful wind was blowing through Wasaga Beach, but it was cozy inside Rhonda's house.

Although she shot occasional disapproving glances at the weather outside, Rhonda was calm and happy as she and her bridesmaids put on their jewellery, clutched their bouquets, and got ready for the big day.

This wedding was - even more than most - a family affair. Rhonda's children were the maid of honour and best man, standing proudly beside their mom and her new husband, Brian. Rhonda's father drove her to the church in his beautiful, cherry red, antique car, and her mom was quietly at her side throughout the day, making sure things were just right.

Despite unseasonably cold temperatures and gale force winds, this day was filled with so much warmth. While we took the portraits outside, Brian rubbed Rhonda's bare arms in between shots, and she grinned while shivering.

Rhonda and Brian, it was an honour to be a part of your wedding day, to celebrate with you and your amazing family, and to witness the beginning of what I'm sure will be a long and happy life together. Congratulations!
