Tiffani and Jonathan’s Backyard Wedding in Mount Albert
Tiffani and Jonathan got married in Mount Albert (well, technically Zephyr) on the HOTTEST day of the year – it was 38*C – and it was an outdoor wedding! Oddly enough, you would never know how hot it was just by looking at the photos. Despite the heat, it was a fantastic wedding, with fantastic people, and everyone had lots of fun – especially the kids, since Tiffani made sure their wedding was super child-friendly by having a bouncy castle! (If it wasn’t so crazy hot, I bet I could have gotten Tiffani and Jonathan in the bouncy castle too 😉 )
The day started in Mount Albert, with Jonathan’s “getting ready” photos, and a few quick portraits.
Then we all headed out to the same spot where we did Tiffani and Jonathan’s engagement photos, to do some family photos and photos of the groomsmen. While we were there, Jonathan’s friend Alex found not one, but TWO four leaf clovers! Double luck! Unlike Alex, who told me that he finds four leaf clovers all the time, I have never found a four leaf clover in my entire life, so I was very excited. As was Jonathan’s sister, Vivien (who is awesome, by the way.)
After that, I thoroughly enjoyed the air conditioned drive over to Tiffani’s parents’ house, where the backyard wedding was taking place. Tiffani’s father built this big structure, almost like the skeleton of a barn, in the backyard. It was covered with a big white tarp, which would have covered the guests if it rained, but it also provided shade on the hot day that it was! It was awesome and very impressive! After the wedding, they planned on dismantling it, and using the wood for other projects. The “barn tent” (I’m not really sure what to call it!) was a multi-purpose area which served as the ceremony area as well as the reception area! A really smart set-up, if I do say so myself! At the end of the “barn tent”, was a small stage, which was not only the “altar” during the ceremony, but also where the head table was setup for the reception, and then after dinner would turn into a dance floor. Brilliant!
Tiffani’s wedding gown was custom made by her friend’s mother – and it was stunning! The beading, the fabric, everything!
Tiffani walked down the aisle to a piano instrumental version of Christina Perri’s song “A Thousand Years”. (Side note: I LOVE this song!!! I know it was probably written for spouses/lovers, but it makes me think of my kids, especially my daughter.)
The awesome wedding party! They were all so much fun! And as it turns out, Marisa has a hidden talent for making little kids smile in photos, so she was super helpful 😉 And the guys had me laughing all day! What a great group!
Of course we had to do the ever popular “running from a dinosaur” photo, because Jonathan is a HUGE Jurassic Park fan. If Tiffani had let him, he would have had a Jurassic Park themed wedding.
I took it one step further though, and put some dinosaurs in a few photos – just for you Jonathan!
The whole family got in on the action too! (I thought it was hilarious how a few of them were shoving each other out of the way.)
One of Tiffani’s friends lives in London, England, and she couldn’t make it to the wedding. Luckily, the technology available these days makes it possible to see your friends on your wedding day, even if they are halfway across the world.
Congrats Tiffani and Jonathan! You two are just so perfect together, and I’m so happy I got to be a part of your special wedding day!
