Shelley & Derek shared a dream of a wedding day at Hockley Valley Resort in Orangeville, Ontario. This amazingly fun bride and groom laughed the whole day, and you can tell they are truly happy together!
The ceremony took place in the courtyard at Hockley Valley inside a beautiful tent, complete with heaters (it was the Fall, so they were there just in case the guests felt a chill). Derek even lifted Shelley off the ground for a romantic first kiss as husband and wife!
Following toasts with friends and family celebrating their new marriage, Shelley & Derek ventured into the light rain with Justin and I for some alone photos. I love when couples are willing to just go for it, and Shelley and Derek were totally happy to take some shots outside in the rain just to catch some of the beautiful outdoor views that Hockley Valley offers.
After shooting outside, we all warmed up with some more shots inside and finished their day with a heartfelt wedding reception. Close friends sang a song to the happy newlyweds for their first dance, and speeches caused many an eye to water.
Congratulations Shelley & Derek! Your day was lovely – thank you for including us.
