We’ve been looking forward to Derik and Alisha’s wedding since their first meeting with us. These two are so creative, thoughtful, and in love. We knew it was going to be an incredible celebration.
The girls’ morning started out with pampering and mamosas at One Salon and Spa and ended with final preparations at the Hilton, where they shared some laughs and worked through the butterflies in their stomachs. The guys had a relaxing time at Alisha and Derik’s beautifully renovated home, shining up their cowboy boots and cracking jokes.
The atmosphere at the ceremony was thick with feelings of excitement and love from friends and family. After 12 years together, it was a highly anticipated moment by everyone! Alisha’s cousin Kelsey St. Amour ushered all of us into a special place with her violin playing and the look on Derik’s face when he saw his beautiful bride walked down the aisle pushed our emotions over the edge. It was enough to make this photographer shed a tear!
It started to drizzle out, and since Derik and Alisha are big country fans we thought Bull & Barrel would be a perfect spot for some fun wedding party photos. Once the weather cleared up, we headed over to Willistead Park for some pictures of the newly married couple with the gorgeous fall colours.
Derik and Alisha love hosting parties and anyone who knows them will tell you they go all out. Naturally their wedding at Ciociaro Club was the party of all parties and wow did their guests know how to have a good time! We stayed late into the night just to enjoy the entertainment from Celebrity Music and the phenomenal singing of Alisha’s Dad, Harrison Kennedy, and her good friend Jen Knight.
Derik and Alisha, we are so happy to have met you. You two are unforgettable. Our most genuine congratulations to you on the latest addition! We just know baby Bober is going to have two of the most amazing parents a child could hope for, and dang that is going to be one adorable baby. We hope you will allow us the honour of capturing your special moments together as a family one day. God bless you both on your newest adventures as husband and wife! xo
