I traveled to Manitoulin Island to Wikwemikong first Nations Reservation to photograph this Wedding. The Island is always so beautiful I feel like the light there is different from anywhere else I’ve ever been.
Amanda & Shevon’s Wedding ceremony was held in the ruins of an old school they had Native drummers as well as a steel drum player. It was a cool fusion of cultures. My favorite part of the ceremony was that the groom didn’t hold back any of his happiness his face shows his happiness loud and clear.
After the ceremony their reception was held at the Manitoulin Convention center. They opened the celebration with a traditional native dancer, dancing to the beat of the drums and singing. It was truly an experience. The drums have an incredible way of touching your soul and making you feel that you are truly part of something bigger. I am honored to experience traditions like this.
