D + R | Romantic Proposal in Niagara

Anticipation is a mix of fear and joy where you simultaneously want something but fear it almost as much. In those moments leading up to those four carefully rehearsed words your fight-or-flight system kicks in. You’re hyper-tuned into your senses: you hear each little bird, you can smell the sweetness of every flower, and you can feel your heart pounding. You try to contain yourself as the time draws near and you take advantage of her momentary distraction to slip the ring out of your pocket. You take a breath an hope you can utter those words without giving away your nerves. But the instant you see her confused expression give way to uncontrolled excitement all those worries evaporate into the air.

M + P | Cambridge Slit Barn Wedding

Venue: Slit Barn     | |    Dress: tmodern Bride     ||     Florals and Decor: Fresh Look Design     ||     Photography: Afterglow Images The Slit Barn in Cambridge is one of the most beautiful venues to host your wedding. Because it is a Natural Heritage site, you must ensure that you keep it clean (not even a single cigarette butt!). But therein lies its beauty. You know you’re going to a clean location. From a photographer’s perspective, it provides numerous opportunities for beautiful images whether rain or shine. The abundant wildflowers along the on-property trail provide excellent backdrops for some evening photos. There is a forest nearby (just a short drive) which was used as the location for M + P’s first look. There is often beautiful soft light in the forest and it provides some shade on those really hot summer days. We highly recommend the venue. If you want to book a wedding photographer who knows the area well, contact us to book your date!
