Congratulations Allison and Dan!
As if Allison and Dan weren’t nervous and anxious enough with the anticipation of getting married. Fingers and toes crossed as the sky darkened and wind picked up while they each got ready in their private log cabins. The venue was on the scenic Stoney Lake at the Viamede Resort in the Kawarthas and it promised to offer a beautiful backdrop… if the weather would hold up.
It couldn’t have been better scripted. The sun came out as Allison and her father started their procession towards the lake: she and Dan locked gazes and their nervous energy fell away just as a beam of sunshine bathed them in warmth.
I’m committing a blogging no-no of writing this quite some time after it all happened, but I have the advantage of hindsight and perhaps even a bit of nostalgia as I reflect on the day. I mentioned in a previous post about Allison and Dan that they have two boston terriers (or ‘terrors’ as coined by Allison’s dad). Kasha and Fenwick were decked out in a bow-tie and crinoline and could easily have stolen the show but all eyes turned to the human couple as they exchanged their vows. Allison looked beautiful in her strapless lace overlay gown in champagne and who could forget those Jimmy Choos stilettos! Dan was of course beaming at his bride and was always able to make her laugh.
As a photographer my favourite part of the day was walking with Allison and Dan to the dock and using the dramatic dark sky as a backdrop. Groomsman Dana was a big help, holding the off-camera flash for me and even helping with fine-tuning some poses for the bride and groom.
I hope you enjoy viewing the photos as much as I enjoyed creating them!
