The Waring House was the setting for Charmaine and Bruce’s intimate wedding with immediate family and close friends. It was a wedding I didn’t think I’d be able to attend however as I was forced off the 401 and rolled my truck 6 times less than 24 hrs earlier in Kingston. However with the grace of God, I came out of it without a scratch and only some shaken nerves.
I had not had the opportunity to meet either Charmaine or Bruce and had only communicated through email at this point until a few days before the wedding when I met them at the Waring House to go over the details of their day. They are such a warm loving couple I knew I was going to enjoy capturing their memories of their day. I was not disappointed on the day as I felt like I was family the way they welcomed me into their day. It was wonderful and made for capturing the moments that much more enjoyable.
When I arrived, Charmaine was getting ready in her room with her mom, friends, and Bruce’s four gorgeous daughters while Bruce and his crew saw to the last minute details. Just before the ceremony started, the rain clouds rolled in, but their location plans didn’t change and they were married outside under the gazebo circled by their guests as originally planned. I loved this idea. I also loved that Bruce walked up to meet his bride for a little moment and first look before walking his bride down the isle. During the ceremony Bruce serenaded Charmaine with a song he wrote which was so lovely.
Thankfully, the rain quit just in time for us to capture some images around the grounds. The Waring House is such a beautiful location for a wedding with their gardens, stone cottage and even a little vineyard. This couple were so much fun together I totally enjoyed capturing the moments shared. Inside guests were treated to a cocktail hour in their lovely sitting room before enjoying an amazing meal in the dining room. Prior to dinner, the couple spent a few private moments together while they read a letter about the meaning of their rings.
It was such a wonderful day and I was so appreciative to have been a part of their day, capturing the memories for years to come.
