On Saturday July 17th, I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Megan and Eric. The ceremony took place at St. Raphael’s Church in Burlington and the reception was held at Glencairn Golf and Country Club just north of Milton.
I began my day by photographing the guys getting ready at Megan and Eric’s house in Milton, and by the time I was done there, I was already sweating. The temperature was in the mid 30’s and felt like it was in the 40’s. In the week leading up to the wedding, I had seen the weather forecast say pretty much everything except snow was going to happen on the 17th so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect.
The bridesmaids were just finished getting ready and about to hop in the limo from Megan’s parents house when the rain started, and it wasn’t just a trickle, it poured. Megan was clearly a little stressed out by the rain, an I can’t blame her. Luckily for us the rain didn’t last too long and when the ceremony was over, so was the rain.
We got to Glencairn before most of the guests and took out some golf carts to do some photos on the golf course with the wedding party. Just as we sent in the wedding party to do some photos with just Megan and Eric, the rain returned. So we made our way inside as well.
The reception was pretty large with over 200 people attending, and I think once the dancing started, 180 of them were on the dance floor. I’m sure that’s partly because of the band being awesome and partly because there was a lot of fun people there.
The highlight of the night for me was that first dance by Megan and Eric. Eric picked up Megan on one side of the dance floor, did three spins and let her down on the other side to a huge round of applause and cheers from the guests. I must say, it was pretty awesome.
I guess that first dance was pretty indicative of how the night was going to go. Everyone seemed to have a great time, myself included.
Here are a few photos from the day.
