Valerie + Richard | Strathmere Wedding

The first time I met with Valerie and Richard, I could tell immediately that we were going to get along very well.  We clicked right away as we chatted about the details of their wedding. From morning beers, moustaches, and racing, all the way to the ring-bearer twins and hilarious anecdotes, these two brought nothing but smiles and laughter to the entire room. Here are a few of my favourites from the day!
