The Distillery District is cool… but coolEST in the wintertime, agree? It’s more quaint, more European-y, and has less of a trendy vibe in the winter.
The three of us just took a nice walk around the place and stopped to snap photos as we went. It was one of the first weekends after many that were NOT OK in the temperature department. It got chilly and windy as nighttime approached but we braved it out for the pics.
These two were easy-breezy, lovey, and good lookin’. Can I ask for anything more?
These two couldn’t have asked for a better day to tie the knot. It was a rainy, sad lookin’ morning that turned into one of those dreamy days with pretty skies and perfect tones. The Royal Ambassador was the perfect setting with its lush greens and the prettiest little body of water.
Cue in the couple. Amanda and Jon were super easy going, down to have fun and couldn’t wait to get the party started.
It was a wonderful day!
Shooting in Muskoka is what it feels like to take a little vacation there… a nice break. A deep breath.
The entire wedding party and families of Lindsey & Jayden took over Port Cunnington Lodge for the weekend, so the entire place was basically free reign. The most quaint little cottages (private library, anyone?) + a beautiful lake + pretty fall treess = hearts on hearts on hearts.
Such a pleasure to shoot, Lindsey and Jayden were wonderfully happy and in love. It was very special to be a part of.
Amanda and Morgan have become dear friends of ours and I was sincerely so honoured when they asked if we would photograph their wedding (seriously their taste is impeccable). We photographed and styled their engagement photos, & then those photos were featured on Style Me Pretty).
They were truly so ECSTATIC to be marrying one another after 11+ years of being together and reveled in every moment. Will you just look at their first look and first dance photos?! Since they’ve been together so long their siblings and parents are already basically family – everyone was hugging and laughing and holding each other – already all united, now finally official.
Emily and Paul’s wedding was one of the most easy-breezy, low key weddings we’ve shot. Everyone was so excited to be there, so excited to celebrate this amazingly lovely pair.
It was a bit rainy leading up to the ceremony, but of course it all stopped JUST in time, which made for beautiful, soft skies and pretty colours. This all took place at Emily’s dad’s place which is SUCH A DREAM. Greenery everywhere, including an amazing willow tree where these two said their vows.
It was just such a romantic day and night, and we’re so glad we got to be a part of it.
Amanda and Ian are the genuinely kind type – the type who asks us over for pizza after the shoot. Stop. Cutest.
They were super fun-loving and so easy to shoot. Centennial Park is basically their hood, it’s where they go to hang out and take their lil pup for long walks, so it was a no brainer that we head over there for their engagement shoot location. Amanda brought cute props, complete with personalized coke bottles (apparently their friend saw the two bottles with “Amanda” and “Ian” on them sitting directly next to each other at the store so of course IT WAS MEANT TO BE, BUY THE BOTTLES). Ian also has a very serious thing for cupcakes, legitimately somewhat of a cupcake connoisseur, so being the doting wife-to-be that she is, Amanda brought some gourmet cupcakes along too.
Ian was surprised she didn’t bring wine to fill the coffee cups. My kinda gal.
It was a wonderful, easy-going evening and we caught some super pretty light. These two are getting married in Muskoka next week and we simply can’t wait for all the loveliness that day will bring, too.
You can’t talk about Leah and Matt without first mentioning that they first started dating in grade SEVEN! His friend asked her friend if she was interested while they were in gym class and thankfully Leah decided she’d go for it! One of the best parts of their day were all of their pals from middle school – they filled the bridal party and the reception hall and we loved hearing their stories.
Not only are Matt and Leah completely adorable (would you look at those faces!) they were also so easy going and really soaked in the day. (Leah kept walking around the reception pointed out details that her planners had included saying things like “Whoa! – it looks like Pinterest in here!”). And I mean that’s the kind of self-aware, down to earth gal, who also likes pretty things I can relate to.
