Ontario Country Wedding

Terri + Delroy

These days, so much of the wedding industry is focused on things... the dress, the flowers, the decor.

Terri + Delroy's wedding had all these things but it was obvious from very start that the only thing that really mattered to them priority was to be married in the company of their closest family and friends.  The other thing that was very obvious was the joy that these two bring each other.... I have very few pictures of the two of them where they're not smiling or laughing hysterically.

I joined the Terri and the girls in the early morning at Lavish Salon in Listowell as they got heir hair and makeup done.Delroy and his best man got ready at their house where we took a few portraits and Delroy regained me with information on Jamaican Pumpkins!

The ceremony at Listowel Evangelical Missionary Church had a funny moment where a case of mistaken identity led to the unity candle being lit, blown out by the minister, and then re lit.   Weddings never cease to amaze me, just when I think I've sen everything!

After that was all sorted out it was full steam ahead with a really touching service performed by Terri's family minister with some amazing musical accompaniment by Terri's nieces all the way down from Moose Factory.

It was one of those typical fall days that threatened rain but in the end we lucked out and managed to stay dry for the pictures.

I loved the fact that Terri + Delroy chose to have their wedding reception catered by their favourite Jerk chicken restaurant in Toronto.   And after a few wrong turns and a slight delay, the food arrived and man was it worth the wait.  I love Jerk chicken and this was one of the best I've ever had!  Being such a small and intimate wedding, everyone chipped in and served it buffet style!

The rest of the wedding reception was really lovely.   The microphone was opened up after dinner and so many people gave such heartfelt speeches and toasts to the newlyweds.
