I'm doing things a little backwards, and posting Kemesha & Mphosi's wedding blog before their engagement session as today is their first wedding anniversary!!! We won't soon forget the wonderful day we spent with this loving couple. The day started with fun & laughter at the barber shop with the guys and was followed by sweet moments with the girls, a heartfelt ceremony at Windermere on the Mount's chapel and some absolutely stunning fall images! Congrats Kemesha & Mphosi, there's no doubt in my mind you will have a long and happy life together!!

Anita + Will
{Old Courthouse Wedding Photography}

Anita & Will's wedding was pure perfection! Looking back on these photos a year later, I barely remember that it rained for most of the day! These two are such a gracious and loving couple - from the first moment I met them, I could tell how big their hearts are and that they care so much for their friends & family. It was such a pleasure being a part of their wedding day - it really felt like we were documenting the day of old friends!!!

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Vintage, soft, romantic, birds, warm

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: There's too many to really pin point, and the day went by fast! I think our first dance is one of my favourite.
Groom: The way she looked.

Best wedding related decision: Floral, Photographer/Video, Cheeseburgers, Wedding Planner

Favourite detail: Head table & memory table

Advice for future brides & grooms: There's really not enough time to say hi to everyone. Also, when the day comes, just ride the wave and enjoy. Hire a wedding planner. Have pockets put in your dress.

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? If I could have stopped the rain.... and maybe do an earlier mass, to have more time with guests.

Best surprise of the day: Seeing the venue for the first time was a great surprise and the cake!

Anything else you'd like to add: We didn't expect the day to be so emotional. It was truly the best day of our lives. The food was amazing!
