Jenny & Jeremy's Backyard Wedding in Downtown St. John's // Newfoundland Wedding Photographers

Many people's idea of a dream wedding involves grand settings and imagery pulled from the pages of a story book. As beautiful as that is, Jenny and Jeremy's wedding shows that a fairytale can begin in the most personal and intimate of settings - their own home.

The pair own a floral design and landscaping company, so all the details of their intimate and gorgeous backyard ceremony came from them, a co-worker and a friend.

In the morning, Jenny shared with me journal entries she had written during their relationship. Their love and affection for each other is genuine and a joy be around.

The magical ceremony was made even more bespoke by the presence of only very close friends and family, the groom's son, and special readings by Jenny's dad and best friend.

While the ceremony and reception were held in their backyard, the dinner was held at Oliver's Restaurant in downtown St. John's, the location of Jenny and Jeremy's very first date. Love comes full circle!

The reception itself was as fun, unique and laid back as the couple themselves, including a campfire and "lightsaber" battles with pool noodles! Because many of the bride's guests were not from Newfoundland, there was even a "Screeching In" ceremony to officially welcome them to the province!

It's such an honour to be able to chronicle this new chapter in Jenny and Jeremy's story. And to think that, before we met one day, they weren't going to hire a photographer at all! If their wedding is any indication, their love can only grow from here!

St. John's Wedding Photographers || Danni + Zack Said I Do || PART ONE

Once upon a time, on a REALLY rainy day in October…Danni and Zack got married! 

Well. When it rains, it pours, but you know what they say about the skies opening up on a wedding day. Based on the amount of water that came down on their big day, D+Z will have an eternity of good luck and happiness. 

Their wedding was laid back, simple, and fall inspired with lots of DIY flair, and was a perfect reflection of them, just the way it should be. The Waterford Manor, which was a great location for their intimate daytime celebration, hosted the full day. For dinner, the newlyweds wanted a burger buffet, and the bride even made the cake herself. This sweet friends and family celebration was amazing in every way, and the wonderful bride&groom were the cherry on top. They are kind, full of laughter, expressive, passionate, and adventurous- and I am honoured to say we grew into not just “Client and Photographer”, but friends. 

***BECAUSE it rained on the wedding day, their portraits had to take place two days later, and man did they ever turn out beautifully! Stay tuned for Danni and Zack’s outdoor wedding adventure on the barrens, coming to the blog this weekend!! For now, enjoy part one of their story!!!

Danni and Zack, I wish you so much love, respect, and happiness. Here’s to more adventures, you two!!

XO, Maddie
