Meghan & Andrew - Scottish Rite Wedding, Hamilton

August 24, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

On a beautiful day in early June, Meghan and Andrew had finally arrived at the day they'd been waiting for. While Andrew was hanging out at Staybridge Suites, the new hotel in Hamilton, Meghan was getting ready with her girls in the bridal suite at The Scottish Rite. 


Sometimes a girl needs a little help :)

So I did a little research on the internets about this Ferguson clan symbol and I learned two things. First, it says Dulcius Ex Asperis, which basically translates as "Sweeter after difficulty", which is a fitting motto not only for a fierce clan like the Fergusons, but for the ups and downs of marriage. The second thing I learned, was that Craig Ferguson has this motto as a tattoo. And now you know. 

After the beautiful 1950's Bentley, from Memory Lane Limousine, dropped Meghan off at the Church, it was time to say 'I Do' as the bagpipes played and their loving families looked on. It's always nice when a couple has the privilege of having a family member officiate, and Andrews mom, who is also a minister, did a wonderful joining her son to his beautiful bride.

Little dude in a kilt! :D



 Before we headed back the the Scottish Rite, the four of us took a short walk across the street to capture a few wedding photos in Hess Village, Hamilton's own pedestrianized bar district. With its paved stone streets and old architecture, it made the perfect backdrop for this beautiful couple.

After little impromptu busta-move to Brown Eyed Girl and the reception was at hand.

We enjoyed a delicious meal and a fantastic same-day wedding video done by their talented videographer. When it was time to dance, everyone was out on the floor, gettin' their groove on and Meghan & Andrew celebrated being Mr & Mrs, at last! 



Since most of the bridal party met through various jobs at the CFL, it was only fitting that Meghan & Andrew had Hamilton's own Pigskin Pete as their MC! 

Raisin Bran Love :)
