Hannah and Luke | Greens at Renton Wedding

We’ve got another stunning wedding on the blog today! Hannah and Luke were married at The Greens at Renton on the most spectacularly beautiful Fall day. Seriously, a more beautiful day could not have been planned. But they have a knack for picking perfect days. Like their engagement session which was on an amazing Spring day. Check that out HERE.

Hannah is originally from Oregon and Luke is a homegrown Canadian farm boy. They beat the long distance odds before Hannah moved to Ontario to start a new adventure with Luke and kick off a cross continent love story.

You know that a wedding day is going to be so kickass as soon as you meet the wedding party and they are just as awesome as the couple are. Hannah and Luke picked out the most fun and hilarious bridal party that kept the whole day interesting all the way from portraits to end of the night dance crazies. We also had access to some of the most stunning locations like an old church, gorgeous apple orchards and can you believe the moon they go too? Plus it didn’t hurt that Hannah and Luke were just the most freakin’ adorable!

It was the biggest honour to be included in such a romantic and fun wedding day.

Ken and Katrina | Holland Marsh Winery Wedding

I’m busy catching up on blogging some beautiful 2017 weddings and boy is this one worth the wait. You can see their amazing cottage engagement session here.

Ken and Katrina were married at the beautiful Holland Marsh Wineries in Newmarket. Together they planned a lovely wedding that celebrated their relationship with each other and their friends and family. They are both very close with their families and it was evident throughout the whole day. Katrina wanted to make sure to have special moments with her grandmother and her father and they were some of the most emotional moments of the day.

The rain came and went that day and what came of it were bursts of light and some amazing storm clouds. They rode through it all and took full advantage of the beauty of changing weather. The big, beautiful sunflowers that were sprinkled throughout brought all the sunshine to the festivities. One of my most favourite moments was during their first look. Ken wasn’t sure that he would cry at all and Katrina had been teasing him about it leading up to the wedding. But when he first laid his eyes on her he was instantly overwhelmed and she couldn’t help but laugh at his sweet reaction. It was a true testament to their loving and playful relationship. This playfulness extended all the way through to their dances. Katrina with her dad and Ken with his mom bust out some serious dance moves that would make anyone envious.

This wedding was a joy to be a part of and I’m so excited to share it here today. Now as we enter 2019, these two are expecting twins! I know that their fun personalities will make them the most wonderful parents in the world.

Adam and Kelly | Le Select Bistro Toronto Wedding

Kelly and Adam are one super stylish couple and I knew that their wedding would reflect their awesome and laid back personalities. They planned their day to cover tons of things that they loved and didn’t put anything into the day that they didn’t. They chose to get ready together in their own home in Toronto. They chilled with their best friends and Adam even finished writing the rest of his speech.

Afterwards they headed over to their neighbours BOMB Toronto Backyard. That place felt like an oasis in the middle of a city. After sabring a champagne bottle like badasses, they strolled over to their favourite local brewery, Left Field Brewery. I am a huge proponent of doing whatever you want on your wedding day. Leave enough time in your schedule for the things that are important to you. Hanging out and having a brew with friends is a great way to take the day at your own pace.

Together they celebrated with their friends and family at Le Select Bistro. Le Select is the perfect venue for a laid back, down to earth intimate wedding. You are bound to have a super stylish wedding there. They had oysters and delicious favours and one of the most hilarious speeches I’ve ever heard at a wedding. This was definitely ones for the books.

Heirloom

One of my favourite things to do is rifle through my parent's photo collection. They have boxes of photos all organized by the year. We pull each photo out and hold it in our hands and talk about the memories being held in ink and paper. Back in the day printing your photos was the only option. And because of that everyone has photos that they can pass down and preserve for future generations to see and enjoy. 

The current generation is the most photographed of all time! We can whip out our phones and take a million photos but the truth is what happens to those photos? If they are not printed then they are lost. Printing your memories makes them tangible and solidifies their existence. What I want for my couples is to have their wedding memories be a part of their family for generations to come! Your wedding was a once in a lifetime event and the photos depicting that deserve more than to sit on your computer. With the ever evolving state of technology it is vital, now more than ever, to make sure your wedding photos exist in a format that won't turn obsolete. 

I want to offer you heirloom products that will last the test of time. One day you and your grandkids can sit around on the sofa and flip through your album and it will spark memories of moments that defined who you turned out to be. 

Choose an heirloom custom album to preserve your images. These are gorgeous flushmount albums with thick lay flat pages. The pages are buttery soft and when cared for properly will last and last. You will choose the images you want in your album that tell the story of your wedding day. Order the size you would like and have full control over the cover fabric and colour. You can even choose smaller sizes for your parents. 

Another option is to choose a photo keepsake box. They come with 25 4x6 prints of your choosing. These are beautiful, high quality prints with a soft matte finish. 

Book a consult with me to come and see these items in person. Nothing compares to being able to hold them and feel the quality for yourself. Let's bring your memories to life.

Christine and Garrett | Portage Inn Huntsville Wedding

I have been so excited to share this particular wedding. Once you see it you will understand. Everything about Christine and Garrett's wedding at the Portage Inn in Muskoka was a total dream! Christine and Garrett first contacted me by sending me the best and longest inquiry email I've ever gotten that made me beam from ear to ear. It felt right away as if I already knew them. 

The first time they met was at a party. They were both on a semester abroad in Western France. She was Canadian, he American. Her first impression of him wasn't great. She totally thought he was the frat boy type. However, it wasn't until after they left to head home that they started to chat online and after a stint in Asia for her she stopped in his hometown of SanFrancisco on the way home and the rest as they say is history. 

Christine and Garrett knew that they wanted the focus of their wedding to be on their friends and family, so they chose a small intimate wedding in one of the most beautiful settings they could have possibly chosen. I mean will you take a look at those views! 

Speaking of family. Garrett and Christine have the most beautiful little bird named Levi. Having him be a part of their day was so important to them. He hung out with Christine while she got ready and was all too happy to participate in photos. Christine and Garrett, I couldn't have had a more fabulous time at your wedding and I wish you an infinity years of intense happiness.
