nicole and kyle part 3

i meant to post this third {and last} part of kyle and nicole's wedding earlier this week, but i have been crazycrazybusy trying to catch up and so am just now doing it. i also have a lot coming up on the blog---dani's maternity session, bridget and seth's wedding, the bloor family session and tanya and scott's engagement session---so be on the look out for all of those! 

kyle and nicole planned their wedding timeline around the light....seriously! they had their ceremony and dinner during the golden hours of light....and so we had to make use of it for some more portraits. I cannot stress enough how much "good" light can make pictures totally magical....

speaking of all the DIY projects for the wedding...doesn't the pond look nice? and it because kyle (among others) were up to their armpits in it mere hours before the wedding cleaning it out!!!

a family friend painted a swing for them, and it was hung in the tree where they got married....

the dance was held in the barn...which our parents had done SO much work to 

   




so years ago, at a cousin's wedding kyle and our cousin jesse did this hilarous dance off (ala napolean dynamite)....we BEGGED them to do it again.....and it took a lot of convincing on jesse's part, but they did it. and it was epic. seriously, pictures CANNOT do it justice......i just hope kyle and jesse know that they will be made to do this forevermore at every family wedding.....

another awesome feature of kyle and nicole's wedding was their photobooth/guest book. they had a photobooth set up where guests could dress up, write them messages on a chalkboard and have their picture taken

here are a couple of the shots from it....

not sure who that odd duck in the boa is.....

  



ahhhhhh...... as if you couldn't tell, i adore kyle and nicole, and am still reeling over how much i loved it. LOVE you guys! miss you!
