Serenity Cottage Owen Sound Destination Wedding – Part II

As promised, here is Part II of that beautiful Serenity Cottage destination wedding in Owen Sound. Just when I thought the first half of the day was fun, the fog and the fun stuck around for the second half, making it truly special to capture. Before we get to those photos, here is the rest of Jen & Trevor’s story:

What Was Your Favourite Moment from Your Wedding Day?

This was hard to choose! One of our favorite moments was coming in from taking photos on the cold misty day and seeing the tables setup up and candles lit for dinner. From the smell of fresh eucalyptus from the table garlands to the sounds of conversations and laughter, we were able to see everything we envisioned setup making it cozy warm intimate environment that we dreamed of. At that moment we purposely tried to be present and take in the moment as the wedding day goes by very quickly.

How Did You Choose Your Wedding Photographer?

We chose Christine for a few reasons. We had seen that she was familiar with shooting our venue Serenity Cottage through other couples online blogs and admired her beautiful photos that she had captured, especially the candids. Through back and forth emails she helped us feel confident in her because her upbeat and positive personality. We believed that finding a photographer that could make us feel comfortable, goofy and 100% ourselves in front of a camera which was very important to us. Christine you exceeded all expectations!  You also had us at “I love a bottle of red wine in the afternoon, the smell of bacon in the morning”

Do You Have Any Wedding Planning Advice for Newly Engaged Couples?

Make lists, lists and more lists. There is a certain satisfaction of crossing things off a list and feeling accomplished. Hire people that you trust. We found that by hiring the  experienced vendors that we did, we were able to have full confidence in that the job would be done seamless, and that alone made us feel less stressed. Lastly, have the wedding that you as a couple envisioned and not what you think other people would want. There will be a lot of people who share their opinions and judgments. It is okay to break traditions to make the day your own.”
