We had been waiting for months and months for Amanda + Kyle’s wedding.

It was going to be an outdoor lovefest.

Peach trees, Niagara-On-The-Lake, handmade details.  All of the things that make wedding photographers dream sweet little dreams at night.

And then…rain.  And not just a little casual sprinkle.  RAIN.  And cold, and wind, and blah.

But Amanda took it all in stride.  We asked her to write about her favourite part of the day, and we love her all the more for her answer ::

{Dancing in the rain for our first dance. We wanted so badly to have our entire wedding outside so when the rainfall lightened up for a moment we took the chance and did our first dance outside before dinner. It was so romantic, hugging each other tight and swaying to the music in the rain. It was absolutely perfect and very ironic (we got engaged while hiking on a mountain top in Banff two years ago- the weather that day didn’t cooperate either, we ended up getting caught snowstorm and Kyle proposed as we were holding each other tight to keep warm while the snow seemed to softly fall all around us). At one moment during our first dance, the rain got heavier, the breeze picked up and we gripped each other tighter just as we did on that mountain, we both laughed and then looked at each other and smiled. Then awkwardly we both blurted out to each other the similarity we had noticed between these two moments. It was perfect.}

Amanda + Kyle :: you’re perfect.
