Another…from our Pop Up Wedding day event at Fielding Park, last August.

These two love hiking. So, what better place to have a pop up wedding then on the trail near Kelly Lake… This was our first wedding of the Aug 24th Pop Up wedding day even we hosted.
Ken and Emily wanted a back up plan, in case of rain. That we had, since the Fielding Park building was rented our for the day and available to them and their friends and family in the event of sketchy weather.
Some images… (the weather was postcard perfect!). After the ceremony, they all went for a hike in the woods! How cool is that…

From last month, when we had our Pop Up Wedding day event at Fielding Park. The weather was perfect! Alex, who I’ve known since we was only 18, got married to Emilie that day. They’ve been going out since she was in high school and have a beautiful two year old girl.
Here’s a few examples from their ceremony.

We try and bring delicious and fresh snacks at our pop up wedding day events. Some cell phone snap shots from last August….
Here we are last Tuesday at Restore on Notre Dame… our new banner, cards and treats…of course. Everyone who chatted with us had for the most part not heard of this idea, and thought it a great idea.
What I find pleasantly surprising is the fact that Tina is passionate and eager to get out there and promote this new venture of ours.
This was her idea…and when she talks to guests I hear her excitement…
The weather was perfect for our first ever, all day Pop Up Wedding event two weeks ago at Fielding Park, in Lively.
Tina married 5 couples from 10:00AM right up to just after sunset.[Read more…] about Pop Up Wedding Day event was a huge success…
A random post. Not much to do with pop up weddings. Onwards…
Most kids love to fly. That’s why I often create these moments where dad throws the kid up in the air. They do this anyways, why not? Sometimes, like the first shot below, I see it happening, so I grab the moment. Fun. Scary for mom. Kids love it.
And it creates some cool memories of the wedding day.
As we were driving to our wedding location where Katie and Chris were going to exchange vows and host a small almost Pop Up style wedding event in her parents yard, I turn to Tina and ask: “You enjoy officiating these weddings, don’t you?”
She replied “Yes, I do. I really do. It’s kinda cool.”
See, this is her first year, first summer as a wedding officiant. And she’s kinda good at it. I have to admit too she’s very, very organized and plans things to a T. That’s always been her super powers.
As we were driving, she’s still rehearsing the vows over again. She wants to make sure things go well.
It’s her style. She wants to do a good job and it shows.
One of the biggest cultural events is the invention of cell phones. We all love em, and we all got one. And, we’re now all photographers.[Read more…] about Good lighting vs bad lighting…is there a difference?
We had another inquiry yesterday from a couple who are interested in eloping. This Sudbury couple googled the terms: Sudbury elopement and we showed up.
Here’s the dictionary definition of eloping:
run away secretly in order to get married, especially without parental consent.
This explains in many ways why eloping and a pop-up wedding are so very different. A pop up wedding, well, everyone knows they’re getting married. It’s not a ‘secret’.
And, even though it’s a much smaller crowd -closest friends and relatives- it breaks away from the long standing tradition of a large wedding- with all its hassles, pageantry and expense.
One of the biggest challenges that comes up, and often resolved, is how do you only invite your closest friends and relatives?
Isn’t it bad manners to exclude?
Actually, no. It’s not. This is a fear which is made up in our imaginations. Most are supportive and happy for the couple as they start their lives together.
That, plus, it solves the bigger problems and challenges that goes along with “who do you invite?” and “how do I keep it small?”
Simple. Have a pop up wedding. No need to elope is there?
