{Sara & Brad’s Wedding}

Machado Photography is having a busy summer, so many happy couples getting married! I never get bored of doing wedding photography because every couple’s big day is unique and different…and FUN!


Sara & Brad’s wedding was like a destination wedding, right in Cambridge; how interesting is that?!  (They also did their engagement shoot in nearby Morriston, on a beautiful farm!)


In the hours before the ceremony, everyone got ready at the Cambridge hotel. Due to the space limitations of the suite, I was met with a slight challenge to overcome; there was no place to hang The Dress for the much coveted pre-wedding shot. I decided to leave the party (it was a party, check out the music playlist that was composed for the occasion!) and take the dress down to the lobby where there was more space. I was met with the very kind and accommodating hotel staff; a maintenance worker brought out a ladder and hung the dress waaaaaaay up in the window so that I could get the photo I needed. He even climbed back up again to turn the dress for me! People are so helpful!


Having taken the perfect dress shots, I returned to the suite where I joined the ladies in some giddy jumping-on-the-bed action! These girls were a riot and so much fun! I love my job; I get to meet so many wonderful folks!


Sara and Brad wanted to do a “first look”, and decided that the Galt Country Club (also the site of the reception) would be a gorgeous backdrop for their photos….and it was!


The Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory was the location for the ceremony; it was like visiting a tropical jungle! Bride, groom and guests were surrounded by exotic flora and graceful butterflies, colourful birds and a beautiful waterfall; it all makes for a spectacular place to say “I do”, and a fantastic backdrop for photos, too!


As though a tropical ceremony wasn’t exotic enough, the reception was like a trip to New York! They Growing heart NY! Brad proposed to Sara in The Big Apple, so it was apt that they decorated the Galt Country Club using that as their theme; the tables were named and decorated after famous city landmarks including the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building and the Rainbow Room. The photobooth included the Statue of Liberty! Sara & Brad put everyone in a New York State of Mind!


A remarkable day for a tremendous occasion! Machado Photography would like to thank Brad & Sara for inviting us to be a part of their day, and we wish them all the best for their long and happy future as husband and wife!

Love all the details! Great theme. Hope they have many happy years together! Great job always Tiffany!
