Today’s wedding is just the right mix of traditional and offbeat. I adore Valerie’s ivory gown with a hint of red tulle underneath. And I love that the groom is showing of his nerdy side with his batman cufflinks and superhero groomsmen. Oh, and did I mention there’s a puppy? YES, THERE IS A PUPPY!!!
From their photographer, Margaret Belanger: I knew Valerie and Lloyd were amazing from the very first email Val sent me. She told me how much she loved children’s literature, quilting, and crocheting, and how much Lloyd loved comic books, especially Batman. When we first met in person, they described their wedding vibe as a Bruce Wayne cocktail party! It all sounded like a photographer’s dream!
Pretty much all of their wedding day details were DIY: the cake, the wedding dress, the groom’s vest, the ring bearer’s pillow, the ceremony program. One of the bride’s brothers officiated. Her sister-in-law helped plan. The same brother and sister-in-law sang at the ceremony. Lloyd’s nieces did the readings.
All of the groomsmen (and even the ring bearer) wore superhero t-shirts under their white shirts. Too many wonderful and personal details for me to list! Both Val and Lloyd exude love and joy and have this sense of wonder about life. Everything about their day was magical and spoke to who they are as people and as a couple. It was an honor (and so much fun) to be their photographer!

Sweet–love the superhero theme. Looks like it was not only a beautiful wedding, but a fun one at that!
I love that they described their wedding as a Bruce Wayne cocktail party! So cool. I also love the stunning red cape that Valerie wore. So many wonderful little details. Congrats Valerie and Lloyd.
Thank you! I had to tell you the story of the cape…it was actually my sister-in-law’s. She had a December wedding, and her mother got it for her. At the last minute she threw it in her car, in case it was chilly at our April wedding. And it was. It was the perfect little touch, and fit so well with the theme, as well. We really had fun.
