Our wedding in the South of France
 
 

So as you may know, especially if you follow me on Instagram, my boyfriend (now husband) and I got married in May!  We had a small destination wedding in the South of France with 12 of our closest friends and family.  Since we are both wedding photographers we knew we wanted to do something a bit different and not have to deal with the drama that comes along with having a 100+ guest list.  Don't worry though if you are having a big wedding!  We still had drama lol.  

We found our "venue" on Airbnb which also doubled as everyone's accommodations for the week.  It was a stunning 14th century chateau in the small town of Saint-Hippolyte-de-Caton located around nine hours south of Paris.  This place was wildly beautiful and I still can't believe we got married there!  Everyday started off with an adventure to the nearest bakery to get fresh croissants (HOLY CRAP WERE THEY EVER DELICIOUS!) and some other staples for the day.  We relaxed pool-side or would go on mini road trips to the near towns and be tourists for the day.  Half of our group had never been to Europe before and the other half had never been to France so we were excited to explore the stunning countryside.  I would definitely recommend it can't wait to go back one day with Joey!

Our wedding day was really low-key and relaxed.  We started out the day the same as the others, with croissants and coffee out on the patio.  We got ready in the afternoon, did our first look and then some photos and had a late ceremony with cocktails and dinner afterwards.  The night ended with a lot of Drake, ska music, some crazy dance moves, and jumping into the pool!

Some of these photos are from the sweet little town of Saint-Hippolyte-de-Caton, including our chateau, Arles, Nimes, and other little towns that we stopped in because of their beauty.  Enjoy :)

Ciera & Steven's in Home Couple's Session
 
 

Ciera and Steven met while she was on vacation in the Dominican Republic and he was living there, running a restaurant with his dad.  Mutual friends wanted to introduce Ciera to someone her own age so she could experience the beautiful country with a friend.  They brought Ciera to a bar one night where Steven was on stage singing and playing the guitar – and it was love at first sight!  They spent every day together after that and knew they wanted to spend their lives together.  They travelled back and forth from Canada and the Dominican to be with each other. They decided that in order for this relationship to last, he would need to make a move to Canada.

They decided to get married shortly after he arrived.  They picked the home of the same mutual friends that introduced them to be the site of their wedding.  Since things moved very quickly, their wedding rings were purchased from a pawn shop in the Dominican Republic.  The names engraved on the rings showed that they had previously belonged to “Edwin” and “Rafael”.  Short, sweet, hilarious, and perfect.  Two years later, they couldn’t be happier to have found each other. They decided to celebrate their love and relationship with a stylish in home session where they could enjoy each other’s company and cuddle all day long!

Sooooooo freakin' excited to say this shoot was published over on Once Wed!
