Oh these two....how I love them! We first hung out when it was minus 21 degrees celcius for an early morning engagement session last winter. Needless to say, it was the complete opposite for their August wedding - one of the hottest days of the summer actually! Lets just say that along with the tears, there was also a lot of sweat shed :) Actually, these two are too happy to shed many tears, they were too excited and in love and it exuded from them!
Kayla and Dejan, I adore you, had a great time at your wedding and hope we meet again :)
2017 wedding and elopement portraits
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.
Kate and Jordan eloped (sort of) at Thingvellir National Park in Iceland, at the cutest little green and white church. I am blessed to have tagged along with them, and enjoy this experience and the beauty of Iceland for myself.
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!)
Lauren and Graeme got married in front of loved ones at Glencairn Golf Course in Milton Ontario on a chilly fall day. Click to see their ceremony and wedding reception, as well as the cutest first look!
"I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.”
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.
Autumn Inspired Bridal Shoot at Scotsdale Farm. Lots of inspiration for a fall wedding!
This wedding had it all - yet was so simple and intimate and perfect. The Alton Mill Art Centre in Caledon was the setting for this intimate and trendy wedding!
