Niagara on the Lake Wedding Photographers: Pillar and Post Inn and Spa
Weddings are beautiful. They are fun, filled with love and laughter, an all-around wonderful day with family and friends. However, to some people they can be overwhelming to plan. While, the obvious choice would be to hire a wedding planner to help with all your meetings, and details, not everyone wants to go this route. And that's okay.
Some people stay engaged for years trying to decide the first big step: large or small wedding. Creating and finalizing a guest list is probably one of the hardest things to planning a wedding, and unfortunately something a planner cannot help with. Wouldn't that be nice though? If they had veto power over all the guests that your mother says you have to invite because "We went to their kid's wedding". That sounds like a dream.
Putting off your wedding shouldn't have to happen. You deserve to have the wedding of your dreams, no matter how big or small. Often times smaller intimate weddings are couples who have been married in the past, they might be a little older, and have kids whom are married themselves.
We have been noticing that more intimate affairs are becoming much more common, and we cannot be more thrilled. It is so nice to walk into a wedding and feel like you have the time to connect with each individual in the room. Mingle with them, grab a photograph of them with their spouse, children, mother, brother, whomever they came with to the wedding. And you just know the bride and groom are excited to be able to do that as well. They have more time to enjoy the company of the people they have chosen to be there, to witness their marriage.
Emily and Kyle did just that. They had a intimate wedding at the Pillar and Post in the fall with 30 of their closest friends and family. There were a lot of personal touches added to their wedding from those in attendance, such as 15 years of collected brooches assembled by the mother of the bride for her bouquet, the cake was created by a friend, and a lot of people gathered to help with the decor and details.
We hope you enjoy their celebration as much as we did capturing it.
