A Winter Harbour View Wedding: Patrice & James


A Harbour View Wedding

James and Patrice’s wedding this past Saturday was my last one of the season. And it was one for the books!!

First of all, we woke up to a light dusting of snow, which looked so gorgeous during their first look. And even though it was a very chilly day, it didn’t stop James and Patrice from taking a few portraits outside.

I have to say: it was so worth it!! It may have been freezing, but their first look was filled with so much love!!! And I loved that Patrice had such a stylish wrap to stay warm and look amazing at the same time. These two know how to plan a gorgeous winter wedding!

Most of all, I loved seeing their families and friends come together for such a beautiful celebration. James is in the Navy, and he has been stationed in Bulgaria for the last six months. Now that they are married, Patrice will be joining him there for the next two years. Needless to say, it was an emotional day filled with so much love as these two embark on a new adventure together.

After spending time with them during their engagement session last week and on their big day, it’s obvious Patrice and James are meant to be together. They have such kind hearts, and the way they look at each other is simply perfect. I wish them nothing but the very best as they start their marriage!! Congratulations, you two!! Enjoy a few of my favorite moments from the day.
