Mike & Diana Backyard Wedding

Mike & Diana

Wow - what a blessed day to have experienced torrential rainfall in the morning to perfect overcast weather for the ceremony and shoots. As I drove up to Mike and Diana's house the morning of the wedding, I could not have been more concerned about weather than I've ever been for a wedding. I entered the house dripping wet and asked Diana if there was a backup plan, and she said they didn't have one, as no one was expecting this much rain. Thankfully, by the time the actual ceremony started, the rain held up all the way until the end of the ceremony where it started raining again for a bit before it ended for the rest of the day. Some highlights of the day included a gorgeous intimate backyard ceremony, enjoying the photoshoot weather after heavy rain, shooting outside at Mike & Diana's first condo space, the hilarious handmade dragon dance, and Mike & Diana's impressive drum/e. guitar rockout! Koodos to Mike and Diana for learning the drums & the song 2.5 months ago!

It was such a pleasure to work with such a lovely and easy going couple and am excited to share some shots of their day =)   


Congratulations again Mike & Diana!
