Congrats, Peter & Jenn!

Peter and Jenn have a unique story. Peter is from Ireland and Jenn is from Canada, however, they met in Australia and now live in the US. They are both lovers and workers within marine biology, a detail which appeared in various forms throughout their wedding day at the Residence Inn Marriot in Kingston, Ontario. Their guests came from near and far, making this day the first time Jenn and Peter had all of their loved ones, with all of their various accents, under one roof.

My top five favourite things from their wedding:

1). The Irish. From crisps, to whiskey, to freckles and blazing green eyes, the Irish family and friends of Peter’s who came for this wedding were so much fun, I doubled over laughing many an occasion.

2). Recreating Family Photos. Peter’s family brought over an old photo album which contains a photo of little Pete and his brother, arm in arm with big grins on their faces. Now, all grown up, they insisted we re-make this photo, and with much laughter I think we succeeded very well!

3). Acceptance of Weather. The original plan was to hold the ceremony outdoors. Mother nature had another plan (as she has had many times this year) and decided to force the ceremony indoors. Jenn, Peter and all of their guests couldn’t have been less-phased. At the end of the day what matters, and what one remembers about a wedding ceremony, is how they feel.

4). Photo Locations. Wandering the city of Kingston I found every corner to be a spot for photographs. We utilized the waterfront of course, as well as the back of buildings, the openings of parking garages,  a quick dance in front of a local busker, and a minute for a Guinness at the Tir Nan Og Irish pub. I swear, if you leave it in my hands I can find anywhere a beautiful spot to stop!

5). Peter and his siblings. Pete, his brother, and his sister live in various locations across the globe. On this wedding day they were able to reconnect as if not a day had passed. The three of them reverted to being little kids; reminiscing, teasing and laughing endlessly.

Runner Up). Pizza Bar! Late night pizza bar is everything wonderful in the world.
