Megan and Dustin chose to start off their day just the two of them going for a hike with their dog into Haterchy Falls. We spent the morning wandering around, and I got the chance to capture them in comfy clothes before they were all done up. It was such a great way for us all to get to know each other and for them to get comfortable in front of the camera.
Afterwards, we went back to the log cabin they were staying at in Huntsville where the wedding parties were getting ready. But before everyone got dressed they packed up their clothes and headed into Algonquin.
Now, Algonquin is one of my favourite spots to go while the fall colours are in full swing because the landscape is so dramatic and alluring. We hiked up Centennial Ridges and everyone slipped into their wedding attire and performed the ceremony just before the sun started to set. To say it was stunning does not do it justice.
They said “I do” as the sun moved closer to the horizon, surrounded by their five closest friends and their pup at their sides. The light was something out of a fairytale and it highlighted the love these two share.
We celebrated with a pop of champagne and then their friends left while we wandered around Algonquin at sunset. The beautiful colours danced along the ridge as the glow of the sun radiated off of the lake beneath us. It was so serene and we didn’t see another soul all day.
Once the sun had settled below the horizon, we hiked down and headed back to the cabin for pizza — Megan and Dustin’s favourite. Before they dove in, they shared a magical first dance backed by twinkling lights in an intimate little nook in the corner of the cabin.
It was definitely an elopement for the books.
