What can I say about Adam and Andrea? Well, first off, they’re awesome. Anyone who has a table of Laurier grads is good in my books. I presume by that comment, you’ve figured out that I also graduated from Laurier, and that’s how I first met Adam and Andrea. It wasn’t during our time at school, but rather at an alumni softball tournament in 2008. I can’t recall how I ended up on that team exactly, but I’m sure it had something to do with my older brothers who were also on the team. We were the ‘Bad News Beers’ and a team photo from the tournament was in the awesome slideshow that was put together and shown at the wedding. With over 9 years (finally eh?) to draw from , I’m sure there was a lot material to look through for that slideshow, and it sure was a great slideshow. The speeches were well done too and I laughed along with everyone else. There was one theme throughout the speeches and that was how good a fit Adam and Andrea are for each other.
While Adam was waiting for the ceremony to begin with his brother (and best man), he was watching the Jays game on his phone. When I went back to see Andrea, she asked how Adam was doing and I mentioned that he was watching the game, and her response was “what’s the score?”. I don’t know many brides who would respond so favourably, but that’s just how they are. They were both so relaxed and easy going during the whole day, it made my job that much easier. They were so trusting of me with the photos and I think that goes a long way in creating beautiful images. Andrea was fine with walking down this small path covered in weeds, something that looked like a terrible location, believing I could make it work, and we got some great photos. During our pre-wedding discussions, I mentioned that I like to try to get outside for sunset if possible for a couple pictures, and not only did they like the idea, they scheduled some time in. They got to spend a few private moments together on a busy day, and I got to take some awesome photos, it was a win-win.
The reception was filled with dancing, and I feel obligated to tell you about a certain light haired bridesmaid who knew the ENTIRE dance to the Backstreet Boys ‘Everybody’ (Backstreet’s Back). I don’t want to say any names or anything in case it’s a little embarrassing, though I admit I like the song and know most of the words, it is a classic. The celebration continued well into the night and it was a great time. I am so glad they had me as a part of their day. Here are some photos from their wedding at the Stone Mill Inn, in St. Catharines, Ontario.
