There’s nothing quite as intimate (or as romantic!) as an elopement. Melissa and Matt created their perfect day, starting at the beautiful William Bay Cottages and finishing with a romantic private dinner at Pepper & Salt Restaurant created for them by chef Silas Masih who had opened the restaurant especially for the occasion.
Like parents, wedding photographers probably shouldn’t have favourites. Having said that, this wedding will always be one of my favourites for many reasons. The main reason though is Ellen, our beautiful bride. Ellen shines – her beauty starts on the inside and weaves its way out. On her wedding day I witnessed, again and again, Ellen wearing her open-heart on her sleeve, and as ready as she was to cry openly, she was equally ready to launch into a big belly laugh; her relationship with all those who surround her is heartwarming, whether it’s as a daughter, a friend, or now as Maciej’s wife.
This was a day of love, laughter and tears…lots of tears.
Special mention to David and Kim – as parents and as people, you guys rock.
Ellen, you and Mac make the most beautiful partnership, and I wish you all the joy and love in the world – thank you so much for letting me share your wedding day.
