The best wedding photographers know that wedding referrals are not only essential, but a great way to see everyone again! Each wedding is not only a time to create amazing memories for the bride and groom, but an opportunity to impress every guest and bridal party member, so they'll remember you when their wedding or family photoshoot comes around.
Not too long ago, we photographed Daniela & Francis at Palais Royale and we were really excited when her sister Claudia told us she was marrying Patrick and had a wedding planned for The Burroughes. Wonderful!
Fast forward to the 2020 COVID-19 restrictions and their party had to be rescheduled for next year; a common occurrence these days. In order to not delay the actual marriage, they reluctantly started to think about a backyard wedding, despite all the work involved. This is when we suggested they look at Hockley Valley Resort Micro Weddings. This turned out to be the perfect, no-hassle answer for an intimate fall wedding ceremony and lunch. Everything is included and really takes all the thinking out of wedding planning.
Because Claudia and Patrick will be celebrating in 2021, they decided to keep it simple and book Hockley Valley Resort because it was a beautiful, no hassle solution... PLUS it came with us as part of the package (*wink wink*)
They were married in the stunning Montclair Patio tent, with a perfect backdrop of green space and nature. And Hockley Valley Resort's beautiful entry driveway showcases the beautiful Fall colours as all the trees are turning a golden yellow and auburn.
As Claudia and Patrick were the last ceremony slot of the day, we were nearing the coveted "Golden Hour" for Bride & Groom photos. A complete treat to photograph in that beautiful golden light, accented by long shadows, creating that sense of warmth you'd expect from autumn wedding photos. The grounds are big and the weddings spaced out, so you feel like you have the entire resort to yourselves.
Hockley Valley Resort offers fall Micro Wedding packages to make your life simple. If easy, no-hassle, intimate weddings are something you may want to know more about, contact their awesome event staff at 519-942-0754.
