Laughter sounded, as Rob and Deanne popped their champagne cork. This photo, taken by local events photographer, Elise Giordano, portrays the fun we had this day.
"The Secret Rock Spot", a very private wedding venue, was reached via a 10 minute magical forest walk. Time stretched to a half hour, as Elise stopped to shoot bridal photos on the way out. Shore Pines made for many scenic back ground pictures of Deanne on the way out to where Rob waited.
Kate, Rob and two friends had arrived ahead of time. The small round table decorated with champagne and a wedding cake. Rob and their two friends, who were the two required witnesses, visited.
Deanne approached the rock, as Rob gazed out over the sea. She quietly spoke his name. He turned to gaze at his bride for the first time in her wedding dress. It was a magical, breath-taking moment... the ah-ha moment of an already perfect day!
After the ceremony, we walked down a gravel road to Smuggler's Cove for more photos.
Rob and Deanne were able to relax on a beach log, while chatting about their future lives together. A relaxed pace presided.
This coastal location presented Elise with many photo opportunities, including a trash the dress moment at the end, where Deanne waded into the cold salty waters of the bay. Needless to see, Elise had to shoot quickly, to get a picture of DeAnne in the water. She didn't stay there for long!
Thank you, Rob and Deanne. Sharing your day with me, gave me much joy. May your days together be full of blessings and happiness. The below photo is one of my favorites.
