{Holly & Vince’s Wedding}

“Love doesn’t make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.”
—Franklin P. Jones
A perfect day for a wedding!

Holly and her entourage of lovely ladies spent the morning getting their getting hair and make-up done at the beautiful Shangri-La Hair Studio & Spa in Cambridge. The Shangri-La also happens to have some great features for photographing, including a funky fireplace in the reception area and a grand staircase with an ornate chandelier. Memories were made while they prepared for the day, sipping mimosas, chatting and sharing laughter…just how every wedding day should begin! They then moved over to Holly and Vince’s picturesque home to dress.

While I was enjoying my morning with the ladies, my assistant Daniel was at the Courtyard Marriott with the gentlemen. They had to work at looking all dapper too! 

Holly & Vince’s traditional ceremony was held at St Aloysius in Kitchener, where the guests were greeted with live music as they waited for the ceremony to begin. A bright, light-filled church is beautiful, even more so when seen through the eyes of a photographer! We were able to get wonderful photos inside the church without resorting to distracting lighting tactics, always one of my main goals when shooting a wedding. A photographer should melt into the background, not draw attention away from the importance of what everyone is there for.

After the exchanging of vows, the bridal party and parents traveled to Rockway Gardens. It was a big crew to photograph…and a lot of fun! Rockway is an amazing park with so many interesting backdrops. I especially love how the tiered gardens look with such a nice big group of folks! I even snuck a few pictures of the 2 little ring bearers having a burger break…gotta keep the kiddies fed and happy! The bridal party had some fun pictures with the personalized sunglasses that Holly & Vince gave everyone; Vince & Holly look like they could be the models selling them!

The reception was held at St George’s Hall; wonderful decor, delicious food…and lots of candid photos of the fantastic guests!  Meeting new people and convincing them to be in pictures is always fun! I was also impressed with how great Vince was with communicating with Daniel & I; often the bride is the one dealing with most of the details, but Vince took a lot of the pressure off of Holly so that she could spend more time enjoying the day instead of worrying about details.

Machado Photography wishes you all the best for a happy and successful marriage! Thank you so much for inviting us to be part of your day.
