From Olive Photography...They planned an incredibly charming waterfront wedding. The blues of the water were echoed in the bridesmaids dresses, bride's shoes, reception room colour and touches, and their twinkly blue eyes. They are so easy-going, and their wedding had a very relaxed vibe - right down to climbing on the wave-splashed rocks at sunset!

The historic site where they held their ceremony and where they took bridal party photos was also so unique and beautiful - a veritable castle.

Kelsey and Nico emanate such beauty and love in the most sincere and sweet way. You can't help but feel all warm and fuzzy looking at the way they smile when together. (Seriously, just try looking through their photos without feeling the love!) -- It was beyond a joy photographing this special time for these high school sweethearts.

From The Bride...We wanted our wedding to reflect who we are as a couple – casual, relaxed, and fun (at least we think so)! We opted for more comfortable attire and simple DIY decorations to make it more personable and in order to stay within our budget. At its simplest, we wanted to celebrate our wedding with our friends and family, with lots of dancing and laughter – and we got exactly that! ☺

I relished every moment of the day (yes, even the red wine spilling on my dress!). But if I had to choose one, I’d say this: We wanted our wedding day to be as organized as possible to limit the amount of stress that we’d feel on such an important day in our lives. We budgeted extra time for our “first look” before the ceremony which meant we were able to relax and enjoy each other’s company before the busyness of the day. I also loved taking photos by the water on the rocks after dinner – it was such a beautiful evening and a special moment together as husband and wife!

Don’t sweat the small stuff – as cliché as it sounds, things may go wrong but you have to stay positive and never forget what the planning is all about – celebrating your love and commitment together in the presence of the people who mean the most to you. What else really matters, right?

Be as organized as you can to avoid some of the minor stressors that may arise (logistics of the day) but don’t let that get in the way of having the best day ever! Budget your time well so that you have room to breathe and enjoy each other’s company!

From the Groom... While it was an unforgettable day overall, some truly stand-out moments were the ones where Kelsey and I got to be alone together. There’s something special about having a minute or two to yourselves on a day where everyone’s attention is on you! Standing out on the rocks with just my wife as the sun set would have to be my favourite moment.
