St.Isaac Jogues Church Wedding // Catherine + Vince ♥

I had the pleasure of working with Catherine + Vince on their wedding day. They are some of the sweetest people that I’ve ever met before! From day one, we connected and I’m so glad to call them my friends.

Catherine and Vince went to the same highschool and officially met at a friends house in 2008, but it wasn’t until a Jack and Jill in 2009, that the two of them connected again. Catherine remembers that Vince took her out on an awkward date with his family, for his dads birthday. In the new year of 2010, they were officially dating and you can call the rest history!

The ceremony was held at St.Isaac Jogues, surrounded by family and friends. When Catherine appeared in the aisle, with her parents on either arm, Vince teared up. It was touching and I will admit I teared up behind the camera. His smile was wide and loving and you could see how excited they were to finally embrace each other.

Their portraits were taken at Petticoat Creek. The trees and the bridge overlooking Lake Ontario, felt perfect for some quiet reflection and more intimate photos.  As soon as we finished their pictures and got in our cars, it started to pour! Talk about perfect timing!

The evening concluded with a huge reception at The Estate Banquet and Event Centre, in Toronto, where Catherine and her father, surprised guests with a choreographed dance. Friends and family sang, danced and celebrated.

Congrats Catherine and Vince and thank you for letting me capture that beautiful day. xo

A huge thank you to my second shooter Jeannette Breward, for assisting me on that hot day! xo

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.
