Leisure Estates Bed & Breakfast: Sam & Mike

They met through a friend on a casual night out.
4 days later they were dating.
And 4 years later, here they were saying "I do"

I had the great honour of 2nd shooting with Angie White for Sam & Mike's wedding. To say the day was amazing is an understatement. To say Angie was the best primary shooter is another understatement.
The wedding day was perfect and Angie, thank you for the opportunity.

Sam & Mike we're married on a beautiful Saturday in Elmira at Leisure Estates Bed & Breakfast the venue was absolutely beautiful! Though clouds loomed the weather completely cooperated just as we hoped.

Because my main duty for the day was to photograph the guys it was odd going through all my images and not have an abundance of bridal & bridesmaid shots. But no worries, Angie's images rocked it out!
And mine....well you be the judge :)
Mike was quite the dapper groom

All of Mike's groomsmen were either family or friends since high school.
These guys were full of character and I had a riot hanging out with them.

Mike has quite the need for speed so having trucks as the source of transportation for the day was quite appropriate.

Mike makes looking good, easy!

After the heartfelt ceremony we headed out to a local farm for some of the awesome-ness you're about to see. 
Side note: I apologize for using the word awesome over & over

It was here that I finally met Sam & the bridesmaids. They did not disappoint. All of them were as sweet & fun as the guys

My fave "farm" pose :) LOL

And seriously whats ANY wedding without the awesome shot, this case...awesome BOOT shot :) Love, Love

Just some randomness around the farm that I liked

So this bridal party was fun fun fun!

But when it was time for the serious poses, they rocked it out!!!!!


Before I show you the most beautiful bride Sam I want to show a few more detail shots
The rings

A little bit of the decorating at the reception which was held at Linwood Community Centre
I just have to say everytime I look at these I want to label the wedding as country glam. Cause really EVERY wedding needs a bit of bling. And this one did not disappoint!

And without further ado....Sam
I found out Sam loves to sing and maybe even in her younger years wanted to be a star.
Well Sam your dreams have come true because you look absolutely fabulous and could give any singer or actress a run for their money!

Wow! Just Beautiful

Red Barn...check & mark! 

Of this series I can't decide which is my favourite.
I actually had more but narrowed it down to 3 for the blog post.

Sam & Mike I wish you much love and happiness.
Angie!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! 
I had a great time and am so glad you allowed me to be part of this fabulous wedding.
With Much Appreciation, Christa

Christa Hann Boutique: Float Wraps

A few orders of float wraps came in last week and I wanted to showcase them again because seriously I LOVE this product! 
And am so glad it's one of the few specialty items I include in my boutique product line.
Float Wraps
If there were any question before of how they look, then here's a few more samples

You can see how the photo is wrapped around the board for mounting

The backing which allows it to "float" off the wall
And you can see how the outer edges of the photo are secured to the back, again part of the wrapping

Full display on the wall...yes I'm absolutely in love

I apologize for all the yellow. 
These images were taken in our basement and I love yellow so everything was painted as
Happy Monday!
