June 11, 2010 Wes & Alison

I met Alison a couple years ago as a bridesmaid at a wedding I photographed for Neil and Nicola. Fast forward two years and now it’s her turn! I met with Wes and Alison a few months ago… and now it’s almost time for their wedding at one of my favourite local venues, The Art Gallery of Hamilton. A perfect choice for these two artists… I’m going to do a separate blog entry about their art (LINK) and their centrepieces… so watch back for that! All I have to say is ah-mazing!

We met down at the Grindstone Creek trails in the RBG. 5minutes from downtown Hamilton and you have this gorgeous oasis. This is a favourite place of Wes and Alison’s to hike and watch for birds. I’m sure you’ll see why…

Wes and Alison hanging out on the boardwalk looking fabulous…

Right after I took these above photos, our friend joined us to say one last good-bye. A great way to finish our time together!
