Mike & Melissa | Ontario Wedding Photographer

My little bro is married!! They decided on a small intimate wedding for close family and friends and the day turned out to be a wonderful one! All be it with a few memorable hiccups, but hey, it only gave them some fun stories to laugh over when they look back years from now.

This is the first time I was asked to photograph a wedding I was also a part of. It was challenging, but I loved the chance to capture the day for them.

here's a few of the more memorable moments of the day.

We headed out to a local park to get some shots before the ceremony. Mother Nature was looming with the threat of rain all day, but she held off long enough for us.. and we appreciated it immensely.

Try shooting a wedding and being in the shots at the same time!!

It was then time for the ceremony, which I was to be a part of, so I didn't actually get any shots of it. This is where things got a bit interesting... The officiant was late!! After waiting for about 15 minutes and trying to get a hold of her on the phone with no luck, we quickly phoned to try and find another officiant to perform the ceremony. Only one problem, the other officiant had the wedding license!! So we jumped in the car and flew down to City Hall to quickly get another license before they closed for the day! Of course we were almost out of gas, and we ran into road closures at almost every turn! It was quite the scene as we rushed into the building, everyone was watching us. Luckily, the phone call came and the original officiant had finally showed up, she had mixed up her times!! So crisis adverted, we headed back and the ceremony proceeded. Despite the hiccup, it was a beautiful ceremony.
