Kim and Tommy got married on a winter day in Kleinburg ontario at The Doctor's House - a cute venue with it's very own chapel! Click to read all about it and see the simple decor and florals they chose!
Here are some of my favourites from 2017 - I had so many that I felt I needed to put them in categories this year!
Starting with THE MORNING OF, and continuing with Emotional Moments, LAUGHTER and JOY, Kids + Pets, SELFIES (because there are sooo many), Bloopers and Funny Moments, Party Time and Sentimental Moments.
Jenna and Rory. They have a wonderful love story of two families who spent summers on the same lake. And since Jenna is a writer I'm going to let her tell you in her own words because they will sound much better than if I wrote them. Jenna and Rory got married on a mild fall day at a quaint restaurant called the Black Forest Inn, that they said "felt like the cottage", so it was the perfect place for these two cottagers to get married.
Elise and Brandon's autumn wedding day turned out to be a cold, rainy and WINDY day, inside the barn at Cambium Farm, and that did not stop anyone from having a blast! They may have been bundled up in blankets, but the guests stayed til the end to show love and party with the Bride and Groom! Take a peek at the video and you will see how windy it was!
Sarah and Jon met in high school, continued on to University together, bought a house, and finally decided to tie the knot and become one forever. Their beautiful ceremony took place at the new and improved Guild Inn Estate in Toronto. Make sure you check it out, and if you are planning an outdoor ceremony, I really loved this venue! The ceremony space is covered, but the walls are open so that even if it rains, you can still be outside. It does get a bit windy but the light inside is so bright and clean. Plus its all stone and white walls which make for some classic imagery. (Photographers - you will love it!)

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.
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.
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.
When Kristen and Marc contacted me to shoot their wedding at Monora Park in Orangeville, I was really excited for several reasons. 1. Its a quaint but adorable venue. Sort of like a hall, but without the feel of a hall, if that makes any sense. The main room is surrounded by windows and a balcony to outdoors. Then down below is another deck to hang out on during cocktail hour, with fields and hills and woods.
5-4-3-2-1! Happy New Year!
What a night, What a day actually! Kerri and Travis spent New Year's Eve 2017 with their closest friends and family for a cozy winter wedding ceremony at The Doctor's House Chapel, then inside to the Heritage room for plenty of laughs, drinks, a live band and some unexpected surprises!
Who wouldn't love going to a wedding on New Years, its a great reason to get dressed up and party the night away with 100 or more of your best people!
I love looking back each year at all the wedding trends that I saw and decided to put together some fun colour inspiration boards that you can share and pin for your own wedding!
This year was full of blues!
