So I’m sure we can all agree that weddings are rad, right? There’s always so much to look at, from little embellishments to grand cathedrals. I love all of that stuff. LOVE IT. The inner scrap booker in me wants to take home every cute napkin and flower petal and put it in a book. However, sometimes we just need to close down Pintrest, put the magazines away and remember what a wedding is really about – the Mr & Mrs (Or Mrs & Mrs, or Mr & Mr – it’s all the same love)… It’s refreshing to see a couple brave enough to ROCK the elopement. Which is exactly what Vikki and Chris did. When Vikki first approached me, I could already tell I was going to have fun with these two. It’s always nice when your inner happy photographer signal goes off. Since it was both their second wedding, she had decided to forgo the bells and whistles and get down to brass tacks… just getting busy being AWESOME. She rocked a blue lace dress and red high heels (AHH MY FAVOURITE). He came all suited up, with his lucky cap and fishing hook. Only 3 people were in attendance – her best friend, brother and sister in law. Even their kids had no idea they were tying the knot that day! I’m told they now know and am happy to report they are elated – and also wondering where their slice of cake is. (Sorry kids, they had wine instead of cake).
The ceremony was held in Hurkamp Park. Afterwards we walked to Fredericksburg Square and got some beautiful, silly and fun photos. Having a couple with the same humour as you is awesome, because then the smiles don’t stop. It was easy to see that she put a sparkle in his eye, and he knew exactly how to make her laugh. We finished off at Kybecca, a wine bar downtown. They were kind enough to let us shoot a couple portraits inside – which was cool because it was a BAJILLION DEGREES outside (I think I probably melted into the sidewalk, and then evaporated back into a corporeal being). It was short, sweet and FUN. Enjoy their cuteness – I know I did!
