Romantic Spring Wedding at Strathmere


In addition to being an occasional day-of assistant for some of Bourbon & Bloom’s weddings and events, Amy Godin is also a dear friend of mine. If you've met Amy for even the briefest of instances, you'll know that it's impossible not to love her. She works harder than anyone I've ever met, at all hours of the day, with unending smiles, literal bouncing in her step and hilarious finger guns to enunciate her stories. Matt is a perfect compliment to Amy with his laid-back, relaxed demeanour, quick wit, and general goofiness. With that perfect pairing, it’s no surprise that their wedding was a beautiful, relaxed day filled with love, laughter and fun.


Matt and Amy married on a beautiful spring day in May, at Strathmere’s Garden House in North Gower. The day started with mimosas and a bulk order of Lonestar takeout for the ladies while they lounged around the guest house, casually getting their hair and makeup done and slipping into their dresses. The ladies wore romantic, blush maxi dresses, while the men suited up in navy three-piecers.







With a single pink rose in hand, Matt found a private little clearing on the garden grounds and waited. I will always remember how beautiful Amy looked as I walked her down the stairs and led her to the clearing where Matt was waiting for her. As I gave her a final once over before she and Matt would share their first look, I had to remind myself, “you're not allowed to cry in front of clients”.








The two shared their vows outdoors under a floral-draped arch, surrounded by family, friends and lush spring blooms. After the ceremony, and a quick sneak away for some private sunset photos, everyone moved inside for a casual cocktail-style buffet, hilarious speeches and wild fun at the photobooth. The beautiful couple shared their first dance under the stars and continued to rock out on the dance floor until the wee hours of the morning. Congratulations Matt and Amy!
