Their story began before they were even born. Claire and Mitch are from two families that were very close many years ago, their fathers shared stories of when they were roommates, met their wives and began their families. There were even baby pictures of the bride and groom. As time went by their families drifted apart but somehow Claire and Mitch found each other again and promptly fell in love. Their whirlwind romance and love story was welcomed by all their family and friends who were present to see this couple be married in the same church that the groom’s parent had been married in years before.
The day was sunny but one of the coldest days of the year but it did not stop the couple from going uptown and outside for their portraits, from the historic Saint John City market to King Square and the Imperial.
Their reception, at Lily Lake Pavilion, was filled with laughter and stories of all of the bridal party, rapping from the amazing maid of honour (the bride’s sister) and speeches from their Dad’s. This is the second time I have had the chance to work with the Mitch’s family. It was only July when we were at Ticklebelly Hill with Hannah and BJ, this time they were the MC and groomsmen, and it felt like working with old friends.
Claire and Mitchell, thank you for asking me to capture your special day, finishing 2017 with your wedding was wonderful. Claire kept repeating it was a perfect day and as you can see it was a perfect day. I wish you both all the best that life will bring you and your family.
