Maggie and Ben get married at River Run Centre in Guelph Ontario, where they first met while attending University. The venue is awesome with floor to ceiling windows and great acoustics (it is a theatre after all!) The wedding decor was based around thier love for literature.
Here are some quick tips if you plan to do a session with coloured Holi Powder.
Tip #1 - Just Buy It! At first I was not able to find it in stores, only for a really high price on Amazon, so I googled and found a ton of recipes online for DIY Holi Powder. FIVE days later, I made about 6 bags of it and let me tell you, it was a P.I.T.A. Plus, I followed a recipe that used flour, and flour does not stick when its dry, so when we threw it, it did practically nothing. Good thing about 3 days before the shoot my friend messaged me and offered to give me a ton of bags of the real stuff. Buy the real stuff, it sticks to skin and is super vibrant and awesome!

Julia and Luigi were married at St. Andrew's Roman Catholic Church - the cutest church in Oakville with the kindest Priest I ever did meet. And since the church is right near the waterfront, we headed there for some wedding party photos before driving to Edwards Gardens in Toronto for more portraits of the newly married couple and their sibs.
This week in Stress Free Wedding Planning – Flower Girls and Ring Bearers.
You may be asking - Is is necessary to have a Flower Girl and Ring Bearer at my wedding? What if I have only one Flower Girl I want to include? What if I have too many children to include? Do they all have to stay for dinner?
Ok – breath. Not a big deal. Like I always say – it’s YOUR wedding, DO YOU.

Jessica and Isaac got married on a rainy spring day at THE MANOR by Peter and Pauls in Kettleby Ontario. This was the first time I had shot at The Manor and it is such a lovely venue. Rain or Shine! Despite the rain the sun was shining so there was still a warm glow over the entire day.
