What a gorgeous day August 7th turned out to be for Allana & Jason.  We started the day at Allana’s family home in Essex, traveled to the Essex Railway Station then on to the west end of the Sculpture Gardens on the riverfront.  The couple married under a beautiful old tree with friends & family surrounding them & their trusty pug acting as ring bearer.  Allana, dressed in her bias cut slinky gown, reminded me of Hollywood glamour queen, Rita Hayworth.  After the ceremony everyone headed out to the Art Gallery to share in a meal to celebrate their love & afterward, danced the night away.    Another beautiful & perfect wedding for this very romantic & funloving couple.  Congratulations to you both…, laugh & love always!!   I had so much fun!    Thank you for choosing Britton Images Photography.

On July 31 Dawn & Paul were married on the shores of Pelee Island in a small, intimate ceremony that included their parents & beloved beagle Ferguson by their side.  Dawn & Paul, who have started their own winery in Ohio, love the simplicity of Pelee Island.  The weekend turned out to be beautiful.  Lots of diffused light reflected from the water lending a soft & airy feel to the pics…..a little retro.  Later, the party shared a yummy buffet at the Anchor & Wheel & everyone treated me like family.  I just loved sharing & documenting their day.  Congratulations on your very special day Dawn & Paul!!!  😉
