Kristy and Scott had an early October wedding planned when we first met, but due to some unfortunate family medical circumstances, the wedding was moved ahead to July to make sure everyone could make it, and fortunately they did.
Kristy’s uncle came in from Thunder Bay, Ontario, to walk her down the aisle in place of her father whom passed away earlier this year, something which had the wedding charged with emotion. From the moment I got to Kristy’s hotel room while she was getting ready, I could tell that she was trying to soak in her day and enjoy those special moments, with her mother specifically.
We did the photos before the ceremony and Kristy and Scott rented a bus to transport everyone from the hotel to our photo locations. We took the family to the Public Gardens, and then the wedding party went over to Pier 21 before heading to Woodlawn United Church for their ceremony. Scott’s parents had been married at the same church a ‘few’ years before and we even took a photo in the church which his parents had also taken, luckily his dad had the photo on his phone so we could match them up.
At The Westin Nova Scotian for the reception, we heard interesting stories about Kristy and Scott, and of course those included their love of sports, specifically baseball for Scott, and hockey for Kristy. It wasn’t hard to feel a connection with them as those two sports were the two sports I played growing up. I will say however that the way Kristy wins races for a puck are much different than the way I do it, but hey, we all have different ways of motivating ourselves. You’ll have to ask Kristy what I’m talking about on that one.
After an amazing slideshow, the dancing got going. I was surprised to see the groomsmen leading the charge, which helped get others out dancing too. I think Kristy and Scott are a great fit for one another, and I suspect a lot of fun and sports are in their future together.
Here is just a sampling of their wedding day, congratulations Kristy and Scott!
