Amy Wilkie (now Connolly) and Nick Connolly held their wedding at Le Belvedere in Wakefield, Quebec. They ended up hiring us a few weeks before their wedding to shoot their wedding video and believe it or not this is a common thing. All we can say is that they DID NOT REGRET their decision. They only had nice things to say and felt it was so important to capture the way the day felt, listen to the speeches, the vows, relive the entire ceremony and hear the voices of all their loved ones.
Nick is a high energy individual who we would consider to be a “positive Polly”. He enjoyed every moment of the day and there was nothing that could stand in his way. He has an amazing sense of humour and was prepared to show it when he “iced” his groomsmen at Belvedere’s Guest House before the ceremony. Nick and Amy are meant for each other because Amy is the exact same way. They were open to do anything to create the best content for photo and video, which makes the day so fun. We don’t know if we remember seeing Amy & Nick without a smile on their faces.
The day started in the cabins on the property where hair and make-up was done, the guys hung out, and the girls had a chance to use Belvedere’s new Garden House. Amy was surrounded with so much love from her girls and shared a cute moment with her dad during the father/daughter reveal. I’m pretty sure her heart was exploding with joy at this point, because ours sure was and we were just overwhelmed with the love that was felt in that cabin. She was jaw-dropping and her positivity was more radiant than ever. She has an unbelievable heart for serving and loving others and we find ourselves always looking forward to hearing from her. This became so apparent when she was surrounded by her bridesmaids as they all were just so excited to be a part of the day. Then comes the groomsmen. We had such a blast with them. They were surrounded with laughter and fun all day and I can’t imagine a more perfect wedding day.
Amy and Nick, no one deserves this perfect day more than the two of you. We are so beyond happy that we got to be there to witness the beginning of your next big adventure. Thank you a million times over for being so incredible. We hope this new adventure together gets better each and every day. Your joy is contagious and we absolutely loved being surrounded by it on your wedding day. Cheers to many more decades of love and happiness!
