Wildflower Herb Garden Wedding | Becca + Kendrick

It’s hard for me to describe the extraordinary connections I have the honour of making with people whose paths otherwise may never have crossed with mine.  It was a privilege to have been present to witness Becca and Kendrick’s love and to hear of all the funny and inspiring stories that were told about them by their closest family and friends.    

Their wedding day was brimming with beautiful family and Newfoundland traditions.  They danced to a song called ‘Spirit’ by Tim Baker, a folk song that spoke to their deep love story.  They ate cake made by Becca and Kendrick’s dad, a special carrot cake recipe that Kendrick’s late mother used to use to whip up this delicious dessert.  Becca’s romantic Abigail of Gardenia dress was lined with blue ribbon under the hem, the same ribbon in her mother’s wedding dress. She also wore her grandmother’s pearls to complete her wedding day look.  They had a table set up commemorating their loved ones who had passed, including Kendrick’s beloved mother. In one of the many touching moments at their wedding, Kendrick danced the ‘mother-son’ dance with each one of his sisters and pulled in his father for an emotional hug before the dance floor lit up with cheer and dance.  

Thank you two for allowing me to be part of your special day and for giving me the honour of capturing your love.
