Kim called in early 2020 during the time our studio was closed to talk about wedding packages. Although we were closed to clients coming in the office we were there to answer the phones and make sure everyone could reach us to schedule upcoming events. We knew that we wouldn’t be shut down forever! We had done a wedding for Kim’s sister so she knew that as long as we were available that she would be selecting a wedding package. Who knows what would be happening in May of 2021 but she was hopeful that everything would be back to normal. As the wedding day approached we talked about the possibility of spaces shutting down again or the mask wearing restrictions. Kim and her fiance, Grant, were so excited that instead of closing all the venues and mask wearing was easing a bit. They were looking forward to celebrating in a way as normal as possible after everything this past year. We arrived to greet a house full of girls getting ready, with 8 bridesmaids and 4 flower girls it was a frenzy of girls all over doing hair and make-up. Surprisingly they were running pretty much on time! Kim and Grant decided that they did not want to see each other prior to the ceremony so instead we did all the photos of the groomsmen first followed by all the photos of the bridesmaids. This way we were able to save time after the ceremony and focus on photos of the newly married couple together. The day just went by so fast that it seemed like we were doing photos of them together before we knew it! A very accommodating wedding party listened to the strict instructions of go behind the venue to the lake and don’t stop at the bar or talk to anyone. They all did as they were told so we quickly were able to get those photos done so they could go mingle. Kim and Grant spent a bit more time enjoying each others company as we did photos and the video guys got some wonderful drone footage. I’m sure there was lots of stress going into this event not knowing what they would be allowed to do, however as Grant stated in his speech it was amazing for everyone to come out and freely celebrate with them. They were so grateful to have such a perfect day. We wish them all the best and know we will see them again.
