For the week before their wedding, Amanda and Adam awoke to a weather forecast calling for rain, an 80% chance of rain for that matter, but when the day finally came, the rain stayed away. It was a beautiful day, with sunny skies and a temperature that wasn’t too unbearable.
Adam got ready at his parents house with his groomsmen and groomswoman and he seemed rather calm for a groom about to be married, but as I’ve learned, that’s just the way he is. We took a few photos of everyone at his house and they made their way to Geraldo’s for the ceremony and I went to see Amanda. Amanda, who is a wedding coordinator, got ready at the Holiday Inn in Burlington while a comic convention was going on. On our way out the door she had so many people ask if there was a real wedding happening. I still think we should have stopped and posed with some of the people in costume, specifically the girls in the Sailor Moon costumes, and the Mario Bros costumes, I think it would have been hilarious. Unfortunately we didn’t have the time, we had a ceremony to get to.
The ceremony was at Geraldo’s at Lasalle Park in Burlington and was held on the patio (in case that rain decided to show up). We took photos around the grounds and then made our way inside for the reception. This is where AManda’s experience came into play. The place was decorated nicely with green accents to match their wedding colours and everything came together nicely. The green rock candy favours was something I saw and wished I had gotten at my own wedding. I loved that the bridesmaids bouquet’s hung off the edge of the table using little purse hooks. The reason I loved that is because the flowers weren’t blocking their faces for pictures, something that bugs every Wedding Photographer. Instead of clinking the glasses, they had people answer questions about them and if they were right, Amanda and Adam would kiss, if they were wrong, they had to pull a ‘task’ out of a bag. For example, the wedding party got a question wrong and had to do the hokey pokey in the middle of the dance floor.
With the dinner and speeches all wrapped up, everyone made their way to the dance floor. Once on the dance floor, everyone could tell who the star dancer was. It was a little guy named Trenton who clearly had the best moves and on top of that, he certainly had the most energy. He was awesome to watch, you’ll see a couple of shots of him below along with a bunch of photos from Amanda and Adam’s wedding.
