Joohee + Joel
I hope you enjoyed the pictures from Joohee + Joel's rehearsal! And now it's time for the wedding post!
I've been to the Tobermory area a bunch of times so when I got an email from Joohee + Joel I was really excited to be going up there for a wedding! We decided to make a little family trip out of it and rented a cottage for the week!
Joohee is originally from Korea and her family made the trip over to Canada for the wedding which was great! I really like weddings where it's two cultures coming together. You get to see the differences but even better you get to see all the similarities in the cultures.
Joel's mom has a beautiful property right on the water outside of town (little bit jealous) so everyone gathered there in the morning to start the day. There were actually two wedding ceremonies, the first one was in the morning right on the windy waters edge with Joohee and Joel wearing traditional Korean wedding dress.
This wedding also had a first for me... a break in the middle of the day! So I met up with the wife and kids for lunch before the second afternoon backyard ceremony with everyone changed into traditional western wedding attire.
We hung around for a nice cocktail hour and some pictures we then loaded up the school bus and headed into town for the reception at the Tobermory Community Centre. I know many photographers out there would shudder at the thought of shooting a wedding at a community centre but I loved it. So much of my photography is about the emotions, moments and people at a wedding that it really doesn't matter to me what the venue looks like. Plus, the decorator did a fantastic job making the community hall look great!
