Joanna + Kris
Joanna + Kris' wedding at the Duffield Theatre and the Waterloo Region Museum was a special one for me.
I've known Joanna for a couple year through my work with the New Hamburg Community Players, an amazing local community theatre group that I do work with. Joanna and her family are fixtures with the community players, working every job from actors to directors to hair and make up. It was great seeing so many familiar faces from the theatre group at the wedding!
I shoot weddings all over Ontario, mostly in Toronto, so I'm always traveling for weddings. It was a really nice surprise to find out that Joanna would be getting ready at her parents place which happens to be in the same little town of New Hamburg that I live in! Cheers to a 5 minute commute. :)
Since pretty much everyone at the house was involved in theatre there was a lot of singing and dancing. Once Joanna and her bridesmaids were ready, I met up with Kris and the guys for a few more getting ready pictures.
Everyone then headed down to Cambridge at the Dunfield Theatre fore the wedding ceremony after we dodged a few rain clouds. Joanna was able to get permission to have her wedding ceremony right up on the stage at the Dunfield Theatre in Cambridge!
Waterloo Region Museum is a great new venue in the south end of Kitchener that has a great modern feel to it.
Joanna decided to have a masquerade theme to the reception so everyone got masks handmade by the bride!
After dinner and everyone else speeches, Joanna decided to give her speech to Kris in the form of one her favourite songs... and she can really sing!
Everyone then headed onto the dance floor to dance the night away.
