Bridget and Brian were married on what had to be the Sault’s version of a hurricane mixed with a tornado. I think if I didn’t have the weight of my camera gear added to me I more than likely would have blown away. If you know Bridget and the amount of time she put into planning her ideal wedding the one thing she couldn’t control took her plans and laughed her in face. That weather can be a jerk at times.
On the way to Bridget’s parents’ house in the morning to meet up with the girls I noticed multiple crews of workers on the road working on the power lines. This was not a good sign. As I arrived at the house I was informed the power was out. This is where the girls were getting their makeup done and all the other final touches. With no available light the girls were gathered in the kitchen in front of the patio doors using as much available light as possible for their makeup; Bridget’s dad brought in a Coleman lantern to also assist the situation. Through all of this Bridget wasn’t phased and just took it as being part of her day. Everyone was relaxed and calm and just let the rest of the day unfold.
Bridget and Brian’s ceremony took place at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in the Sault’s west end. I believe it was the last wedding ceremony to take place as the church has now closed. Their reception and all of the formal shots were held at the Bushplane Museum in downtown Sault Ste Marie. The planes provide a unique atmosphere especially to anyone who has never been in the museum before for the reception.
Thanks for such a fun day guys and not letting the weather affect what really mattered that day.
