Bekah and Kyle were married at Legends Estates Winery on Saturday and we were there to capture all of the magic. It was beautiful to see the genuine excitement in both of them leading up to their first look, they were smiling non stop all day long, and the incredible lakeside vineyard made the most perfect backdrop for their ceremony and reception. We were able to share many of the day’s special moments with their guests as the Same Day Edit was shown just before the dancing started. We wish them so much love and happiness in their new life as husband and wife.

Ashley and Joey’s wedding story unfolded in the most beautiful location, their very own farm, on what was probably the nicest Saturday of summer – 25 degrees with lots of sunshine and the perfect amount of cloud cover. Mother Nature was so kind to all of us as we celebrated this beautiful love story. There were many beautiful details to capture. Robb Williams outdid himself as he and his talented team transformed empty barns into gorgeous, rustic and romantic pieces of art. Guests were greeted by a traditional bluegrass band and there was a pig roasting on a spit that would be carved and served for dinner. Anne Dickson and her team from Pig Out Catering served an amazing dinner and the DJ team from Spirit of Sound kept everyone entertained with great music. From the Muskoka chairs and fire pits to the huge hay ride wagon that the bridal party rode on after the ceremony, this day was full of special moments that were truly a reflection of this couple. We are so honoured that we were there to capture all the details and preserve these beautiful memories. Their Same Day Edit was shown on the outside wall of the barn as their guests enjoyed home made desserts from the pie bar and bakery stations. It simply couldn’t have been better. Congratulations Ashley and Joey, all your hard work was so worth it. What a wedding to remember!

Tracy and Nick were married on the beautifully modern rooftop of Malaparte in downtown Toronto. Their day was full of sunshine and laughter as their friends gathered from around the world to share in their special day. We loved the morning door games that were hilarious as Nick and his guys had to dress in onesies and play silly games to win Tracy’s hand in marriage. Their same day edit slide show was also enjoyed by their guests during the cocktail hour. We just know these two will live happily ever after!

Just a few short weeks before their intimate Muskoka wedding we received an email from Nicole and Duane to ask if by chance we were still available on July 2, 2015 to film and photograph their wedding story. I don’t think we’ve ever captured a Thursday wedding before, but being that the July 1st holiday (Canada Day) fell on a Wednesday this year, this was in fact the perfect day for their wedding celebration. What makes this so unique is that Nik and Duane live in Sydney, Australia which meant that planning out the details of their wedding would have to happen online and via skype. I must admit I was smitten from our very first skype call… who doesn’t love an Aussie accent, right? And they were both, so visibly, head over heels for one another and so excited for their wedding, that we knew this was going to be something very special. Indeed, it was an exceptionally beautiful day at Windermere House on July 2nd and although Nik’s family and many of their closest friends from Australia were not able to attend in person they did have a small group of Duane’s family and a few mutual friends who were able to join them. Nicole’s dearest friend Margie flew all the way from Australia and Duane’s youngest daughter India stood by Nik’s side and gave the most amazing toast at the luncheon reception. The combined simplicity and elegance of their wedding details as well as having Duane’s long-time friend Cary marry them, and Tobin Spring play beautiful acoustic music all afternoon, truly made this a memorable day for all. We are elated to share this highlight of their wedding story so that all of their friends and family can share in this celebration with Nik & Duane and experience the beauty of Muskoka (one of our very favourite places). Much love to this very special couple… thank you for choosing us to capture all of your precious wedding memories!

“Today I’m marrying my forever dream girl!”
Over the years we have had the honour of capturing some pretty amazing wedding stories and we’ve spoken openly about how truly lucky we are to be there on the the biggest, most important day of people’s lives. Weddings are about bringing together two families and uniting them as one, it’s the promise from one to another that you will love, honour, respect and protect each other and be there for each other through the good times and the bad. As I listened to the vows that Krista and Mike said to one another it resonated with me and each of their guests – on this, their wedding day – a day planned in just 3 short weeks by Krista herself, it truly was about lifting each other up and supporting each other during the toughest of times.
Krista learned just 40 minutes before the ceremony was to start that her dad wasn’t going to be able to attend the wedding as he had just been admitted to hospital. She was overcome with emotion. Her brothers and mom rallied around her to make sure that her dream wedding would still take place. I knew that for every bride, and every couple, their wedding day goes by so quickly and that they barely remember any of the significant moments because the emotions, anxiety, excitement of everything going on really limits the memory from retaining too many of the important details. I knew, looking at Krista in those moments before she slipped into her gorgeous gown that her mind was only on her dad and that we simply had to capture the audio from their marriage vows and as many moments from the day in photographs so that she could share their wedding story with her dad and relive the moments, show him all the beautiful details she had planned so that her efforts were so very worth it.
After the lunch reception at the beautiful Cambridge Mill we all headed to Mike’s sister’s farm. What a photography dreamworld it was! Krista climbed up on a gorgeous horse for some bridal portraits, together she and Mike lied in tall grasses, canoed around a quaint pond and climbed hills of wild flowers… their photographs are simply stunning!
Today Krista and Mike came over to watch their slideshow and were overwhelmed with emotion watching and listening … a day that unfolded just 48 hours earlier was re-lived and can now be shared with her dad and all of their family and friends… forever! I’m so glad they are allowing us to post their slideshow here… it’s definitely one of my favourite weddings of all time. xo
Claire + Luca were married at the beautiful St. Basil’s church at the University of Toronto. These two are the perfect match! Claire has been following our work over the past 5 years and when Luca proposed we were one of the first vendors she contacted. We were thrilled to hear that they were planning a June wedding and looked so forward to capturing all of their wedding day memories. We know they are anxiously waiting to watch this again from some romantic spot on their travels as they spend their honeymoon in Europe, so here it is… their beautiful Same Day Edit.

We first met Pam and Stephen last year when Pam’s sister Sabrina and her hubby Franco were married. The one thing I remembered so vividly from that day was just how amazingly kind and warm their family was to us. Joe, Pam and Sabrina’s father, was constantly asking us if we needed anything or if he could do something for us. He is always smiling… and last Saturday morning it was exactly the same. It was pouring rain when we started our morning coverage at 8 am. Pam arrived home from the salon with a huge smile and an attitude of “I don’t care if it’s raining this is going to be the most amazing day”. I love that both her and Stephen are so easy going and were completely trusted us with the photo location when their plan to visit Pioneer Village fell through because of the heavy rain and winds. Everything fell into place and we had an amazing day. The rain stopped briefly in the mid afternoon and we went outside to capture some photos with the vintage car they rented. The reception at Paramount was gorgeous – I loved the decor and little hints of Autumn and lots of sparkle. Their Same Day Edit matched their personalities perfectly – it was both fun and upbeat! We know that just as they’ve spent many years together planning for their big day they’ll now have many, many more years ahead of great adventures… cheers to love and laughter!

It’s been an amazing year-long journey getting to know and become friends with Sasha and Eric. Yesterday, it was such an honour for us to capture the wedding story of this fabulously warm, completely in-love-with-each-other couple. From her couture Vera Wang gown and Louboutin Shoes to walking down the isle to the love of her life it was evident that Sasha’s biggest wedding day dreams came true. Eric looked so handsome and was teary during his personal vows to his new bride. The entire day was filled with love and laughter. We saw many of their guests wiping away tears after their Same Day Edit showed last night… it truly encapsulates their love story and will always take them back to their magical day. We had the pleasure of working alongside some very talented individuals who all had an important role in making their day as memorable as it was!

What a beautiful wedding story … Rebecca and Steve had the most perfect day… a super fun bridal party, amazing parents, family and friends… so much love surrounding them as they wed that it was really very magical to be there in the midst of it all. Their ceremony was held outdoors at the Ancaster Mill and we just loved that they said personal vows to each other, it’s always extra beautiful when words are spoken from the heart. We had a quick 45 minutes for photos in between the ceremony and reception so we headed to Canterbury Hills and it was nice for the two of them to have that little bit of down time to enjoy a glass of champagne and take it all in. From the Potting Shed did an absolutely fabulous job on the floral design and it was a pleasure to work alongside Jackie and Amy of The Prepared Bride. Their wedding cake was a simplistic yet elegant design from The Luvvly Cake Co. We know these two are off celebrating on their Mediterranean honeymoon, but we wanted to post their highlights so they can enjoy them from some romantic location and re-live their magical day! A full post of photos will be up on the blog in a few weeks. May happiness and joy fill your hearts for always!
