We are nearing the one year anniversary since Kayla and Jamie’s September Cambridge Mill wedding, so I figure it’s finally time to share this gorgeous day with the world! We did a first look and wedding party portraits at Mill Race Park, which is a beautiful spot right across the street from the Mill. It overlooks the Grand River, with stunning steeples in the background and tons of old stone work left from the ruins of an old textile mill. This area of Cambridge is so stunning; Galt has such a charming old world feel. You might recognize some of these spots from where Hulu films The Handmaids Tale!
Kayla and Jamie both got ready for the day at a nearby hotel, but I did want to highlight one spot in particular that is close by the Cambridge Mill. There is a studio called Open Space Studio, which is available for rent for photography or workshops, and more importantly, you can book the space as your wedding getting ready location! It is steps away from Mill Race Park and the Cambridge Mill and couldn’t be more perfect for a bridal getting ready room. It’s big enough for hair and makeup to come in, and still have plenty of room for you and your bridesmaids to get dressed, and your photographer to work. Tons of natural light streams in through the huge windows, and the space is so beautifully decorated while still being neutral enough to suit any wedding style and colour palette. I’m a bridesmaid in a wedding next year and this is where we are getting ready for the day, and I can’t wait to see the space in action!
As always, the full list of vendors can be found below. A huge thank you to Christine W for joining me as a second shooter!
Enjoy these bright late summer vibes!
