We couldn’t have been happier with the wedding we shot yesterday. We bet Jessica and Corey are feeling the same way today. Their classy, country style wedding was beautifully executed in every way. Champagne. Shotguns. Cowboy boots. Flowers in her hair. Kids giggling. Barns. Friends. Golf. Family. Dancing. Wedding cake cut with an orange hunting knife. Bride with a beer. LOVE. It’s a Gemus thing.
15 years! That’s how long these high school sweethearts have been in love. From what we saw yesterday, they have the rest of their lives to genuinely live, love and laugh together. Ceremony and reception were at Oxley Estate Winery and the bride did all of the decor and little touches herself. The weather was absolutely gorgeous. The ceremony was so touching – they chose to seal a wooden box with a bottle of wine and love letters inside. It’s to be opened on their 5th anniversary (which will be 20 years together!) – and they’ll share the tradition again on their 10th and 15th and so on. Their bridal party was a lot of fun and featured a man of honour, family and friends. The food was AMAZING, the liquor and wine flowed, and the best time was had by all.
Congratulations Mandi and Jesse!
We took a trip home to England for one of my best friend’s wedding. He and Kate met a few years back and have been inseparable ever since. I was an usher in the wedding (read: not the wedding photographer!) and so glad to be asked to share this lovely day in the presence of true love. Kate was a DIY bride extraordinaire (and Rob helped, too). Check out all the beautiful little touches.
