Skyloft Wedding // Brooke + Chris ♥

They say rain on your wedding day is good luck, but this couple needed no extra luck. When Brooke and Chris asked me to shoot their wedding, I knew I was in for a treat. I’ve known Brooke since high school and she was always an easy-going, loving and caring person. I also had the pleasure of shooting their son, Bentleys newborn pics, so I knew exactly how cool this couple was.

The day didn’t start with sunshine, birds chirping and bright fall leaves, like most fall brides dream of, but that didn’t bother Brooke and Chris. When I arrived at Brooke and Chris’ house the morning of the wedding, Brooke was upstairs getting little Benny ready for the big day. She was so calm and just excited to be marrying the man she loved. The weather didn’t even phase her. Brooke was more concerned with me having fun! Great client, eh?

When we arrived at Skyloft for the wedding, the staff was ready with massive umbrellas helping guests from their cars. Skyloft made the transition from a beautiful outdoor wedding, to a beautiful indoor wedding seamless! They were so helpful and kind and I couldn’t recommend them enough.

After the ceremony the rain stopped for a few minutes and we were able to get a few portraits and a group shot, just before it started to pour again. Everyone ran back inside to the party and the night went off without a hitch.

The wedding was filled with laughter, happiness and most of all love. I couldn’t be happier for Brooke, Chris and their perfect little guy Benny. They have all the sunshine they need.

Over the weekend I…

I can’t tell you how lucky I am to have such amazing girlfriends. A few weekends ago, I went to my friends cottage, for a girls weekend in Collingwood. It was a cold and rainy weekend, but we love to chat! We cozied up to a “real” fire and sipped on Bengal Spice Tea. So yummy. If you haven’t tried it, try it! Thanks ladies for another wonderful girls weekend. Love you all!

Moody Mondays // 9

Over the weekend I went to the Junction Market with a good friend. We stopped in a shop called, “Russet and Empire.” The shop was full of unique items and fun vintage finds. I came across this book called, “Native Trees of Canada.” The book has some beautiful illustrations of leaves by artist Leanne Shapton. I thought this would be the perfect Moody Monday post, since the leaves this autumn are at their peak. Happy Monday and happy fall everyone.

Over the weekend I…

Made two apple pies, had turkey, went on a walk through the forest, spent time with my family and went horseback riding. It was awesome! We closed up the cottage over the weekend, so it was bittersweet. I hate closing the cottage when it’s so beautiful up there, but we still plan on going up and staying with family. It just gets to cold to stay in our little cabin.

I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving. I’m kind of sad it’s over. It always goes by way to fast. At least I have my birthday to look forward to and a girls weekend in Collingwood coming up. Here are some pics I took over the weekend!

Over the weekend I…

Went apple picking with my family! Every year the family and I head north of Toronto and pick apples. It’s a tradition, just like cutting down our own Christmas tree. We went to Watson’s Farm, in Bowmanville. It was great because you got to take a wagon ride to the apples. Here are some shots from the weekend. I love this time of the year…not just because it’s my birthday month. haha

I’m planning on making two apple pies this weekend, for our Canadian Thanksgiving. I am making the pies using a secret Taylor family recipe. It’s one that was passed down to me from my husbands grandmother. I try and switch up the apples sometimes. This year I am going to try one pie using Cortlands. They are great baking apples. Here’s to hoping it works out!
