It’s pretty typical for my weddings to take me out of my usual stomping grounds. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I did a wedding in Gloucester. But Camille & Garry’s wedding ceremony took place in a family friend’s backyard overlooking the York, and they danced the night away at the Yorktown Freight Shed, offering different views of the same river. 

Camille completely lucked out with an uncle as a wedding planner. Rob and Joseph with Riverwood Designs provided stunning floral arrangements for the ceremony, that paired with the backdrop, was one of my favorite views this year. They also made it their mission to create an atmosphere that said “party like you love the heck out of this couple”, and that they did!!!! 

I met Camille working at a movie theater when I was just out of high school. She’s the kind of person who is kind and accepting of everyone she meets. The type of person you want as a friend. I met Garry when I did their engagement session, and after seeing their chemistry I knew they were perfect for each other! But what sealed the deal was their wedding night toasts. It was an honor to hear their closest family & friends talk about them & to them- wow, they are just so loved! 

A wholesome day, to put it simply. Roman and I went a different direction with our wedding and eloped, but… if we hadn’t, I’d definitely be pulling inspiration from this wedding! Maybe we can have a redo? Perhaps a vow renewal?

Also, um…. HELLO perfect ceremony exit!!! The petals could not have been thrown more perfectly. Their guests understood the assignment. I really think that could be the photo of the year for JEP.
