It feels like a million years ago that I met Christina and Michel for their engagement session at Pink Lake. And truthfully, it kinda was. I remember huffing and puffing my way through our hike, 7 months pregnant. My kid turns two in December…so we’re talking almost two years ago.
Christina and Michel were supposed to get married in May at Temples Sugar Bush, but instead postponed until September in hopes that the pandemic would be a little less overwhelming.
With their closest family, and everyone else watching the live stream of their wedding, Michel and Christina got married on the most beautiful September afternoon.
I joined the girls in the bridal suite as Christina was putting on her dress.
Then over to the guys, where Michel was getting dressed before we made our way into the forest for their first look.
Their first look was perfectly set in the quiet of the woods, where Michel read Christina a letter.
My friends over at Union Eleven were there to live stream the ceremony as well as the bride and groom’s first dance, cake cutting and speech. If there’s anything this pandemic has done, it’s break all wedding traditions and make it your own. So immediately following the ceremony, the couple returned to the ceremony arch for their first dance.
Followed by their cake cutting and speech for all their guests joining via the live stream.
The bride’s father brought a bunch of mini white pumpkins from his farm to the ceremony. We had to capture a photo! I also got to take a few home for the boys…so nice!
Temples Sugar Bush has been offering outdoor wedding receptions under a tent since the pandemic.
Following dinner and speeches, we snuck away to a nearby church for sunset photos. Obsessed.
Congratulations you two on the most perfect of days!
