Marissa & Dave's Wedding

Waterloo Region Museum Wedding Photography

< Back to Weddings

It’s funny how ten years ago can feel like forever, and yet simultaneously just like yesterday…

It was about that long ago when Marissa and I first met, as we shared numerous classes together at the University of Guelph, and ultimately ended up living in the same townhouse complex too!  A few years later we even went to get our ears pierced together (’cause we’re cool like that!).  Life is funny.

When Marissa and Dave got engaged, they ended up bumping into me at the Wedding Trends show in Kitchener.  I had just taken a quick break and upon returning to my booth, there they were! We were excited to bump into each other, and Marissa remarked that it had completely slipped her mind that I was photographing weddings. They booked me on the spot for their big day!  I was so excited to work with them. Marissa and Dave are incredibly smart, witty, and hilarious.  Always a fun time!

Last fall, we photographed their engagement session with their dog Remy (whom I absolutely ADORE!) at the University of Guelph Arboretum.  The photos were beautiful and I couldn’t wait to photograph their wedding day!

On June 17th, Marissa and Dave were married at the Waterloo Region Museum and Doon Heritage Village.  My secondary photographer for the day once again was David Todor, who was responsible for most of the groomsmens’ photos, and for capturing the day’s events from alternative angles.

The day started with Marissa’s preparation at a local hotel, followed by a spiffy ride to the Museum in a beautiful antique Packard car, where she and Dave had their emotional reveal by the train.  The reveal was then followed by the bridal party photos, and the ceremony and reception inside the museum.

And, I have to mention, the beautiful floral arrangements were by Cayla Dittenhoffer of Just Blooms.  Cayla and I have worked together on quite a few weddings now since our first bridal creative photoshoot last summer – including Mikayla and Justin’s wedding this past May!  I had no idea she would be at this wedding and it was a wonderful surprise to see her.

This was such a fun day, and I was so happy to have been able to be alongside one of my friends on her wedding day!
