Emily and Niko’s amazingly fun backyard wedding in Seagrave, Ontario had a little bit of everything. As a wedding photographer, I’ve seen many unique and personalized weddings throughout my career, but a backyard wedding on a lake in Seagrave truly stood out. This wedding was full of delightful surprises and one-of-a-kind elements that made it truly unforgettable.
Custom Converse All Star Shoes
One of the most charming details of the wedding was the custom Converse All Star shoes worn by Emily and Niko. Inscribed with the words “bride” and “groom,” these shoes added a touch of fun and personality to the couple’s wedding attire. They were a great conversation starter and made for some fantastic photos.
As dusk descended upon us, the food trucks arrived. Emily and Niko opted for a unique food experience for their guests with the inclusion of an ice cream truck and a grilled cheese truck. The ice cream truck was a big hit on a hot summer day, and the grilled cheese truck provided a cozy late night snack that everyone loved.
After the ceremony, the newlyweds went for a short ride around the lake on their boat (featuring a “Just Married” banner). This was a serene and intimate moment for Emily and Niko, and I was lucky enough to capture it on camera. The photos turned out beautifully, and it was clear that they’re deeply in love.
A Little Trim
Another surprising moment was when Niko decided to get a haircut right before the ceremony! It was a bold move, but it paid off, and he looked sharp and polished for the big day.
The nearby neighbours were kind enough to let us use their properties for photos. This gave us the opportunity to take some stunning and unique shots, and it made the experience even more special.
What’s a wedding without an end-of-night fireworks show? A colourful, dazzling display lit up the skies to celebrate Emily and Niko’s marriage.
With its unique elements and personalized touches, Emily and Niko’s wedding was a celebration of love and individuality. From the custom Converse shoes to the boat ride on the lake, every detail was a delight for me to capture. If you’re planning your wedding and looking for inspiration, consider adding some unique elements that speak to your personality and style. Your wedding day should be a reflection of who you are as a couple, and this backyard wedding on a lake is a perfect example of that.
