Camp Bournedale Summer Wedding

Colleen & Dan – Married! For the love of pickles!

Camp Bournedale Summer Wedding

Or in the instance of this Camp Bournedale Summer Wedding –

It’s not just about the pickle.

We first met on a blind date at the 99 Restaurant and it was there, in that moment, at the bar that we discovered our mutual love for pickle brine. Fast forward, almost 8 years later, and here we are on this special day promising our love to one another. We thought it was only right, that almost 8 years later, we incorporate at our wedding one of the little things that brought us together so many years ago. So please help yourself, open a jar, dig in, take them home and enjoy the pickle brine!! After all, it’s not just about the pickle!

Love, Colleen & Dan

This was just one of the million things that made me smile at Colleen & Dan’s Camp Bournedale Summer Wedding.

Some of the other things included:

  • Dog of Honor, Reuger
  • Remembering the fun we had at their Throwback Brewery Engagement Session
  • Gorgeous baby in a tiny suit
  • Dan’s pocket watch
  • Colleen’s sparkly shoes
  • Dan & his groomsmen arriving to the ceremony via pontoon boat
  • The fierceness with which they hug.
  • Shark cake toppers
  • A cake that’s actually whoopie pie
  • How many people wanted to do something special for them during their reception.

And honestly the whole damn day. I don’t think I stopped smiling once, even when I was crying!

Thank you friends, for being you and for asking me to be there with you as your wedding photographer!
