Merridale Estate Cidery is one of my favorite venues. There are just so many great things about it, the cider not the least of them :) When I found out Meghan and Andrew were getting married here I was beyond stoked. It was quite the day! It started a little rough as I was stuck in traffic on the Malahat in 34 degree weather with no AC panicking that I was going to be late. Thankfully I got there just at the time I was scheduled to start (even after leaving 2 hours early!) and things ran much more smoothly after that.
Meghan and Andrew have such a calm presence about them and they are so at ease with each other. Their families were as wonderful as they are and I really couldn't have asked for a better wedding to be a part of. These two have since started a new life in Ontario with their two pups you may have seen at their engagement session blogged here.
All the best in the future you two - wishing you a lifetime of happiness.
Meghan and Andrew opted for a first look which helped calm their nerves before the wedding ceremony and of course gave us more time for portraits :)
The band "West My Friend" was hired for the ceremony and reception - they were amazing and were all such nice people! I had so much fun eating with them during dinner.
The Dad speech - gets you every time!
Meghan and Andrew - congrats. I have no doubt your life together is going to be as much fun as your wedding was. Thanks for having me be a part of your day :)
