This summer we enjoyed the wedding of Jen and Nick in a quiet outdoor ceremony on the grounds of the Benmiller Inn overlooking the Maitland River near Goderich. We were excited at the opportunity to shoot a wedding there as the Goderich region has always been special to our family. As we discussed their wedding plans they were surprised that photographers from Chatham would be so familiar with their home town (seriously, they live right behind one of our favourite landmarks – Culbert’s Bakery).
It was a day that was a long time in coming, in fact it was a bit overdue as their original wedding day had been postponed, or rather sidelined, by the arrival of, and the subsequent cleanup of, the 2011 Goderich tornado. With the help and support of friends and family, the pieces were picked up, their house was rebuilt, and their wedding plans were put back on track.
Jen and Nick, thank you for allowing us to tell your story. Your relationship has faced hardships most (hopefully) will never see and you’ve come out the other side stronger. We wish you a lifetime of love, happiness, and calm winds.
