Megan & Jonathan’s Sunflower Wedding

How They Met

Megan and Jonathan actually met at a job interview! Jonathan thought “She seems nice”, while Megan thought to herself “He’s so handsome”. They went on their first date to Boston Pizza, and they must have hit it off because a year-and-a-half later they were engaged!

The Proposal

Megan and Jonathan were walking along the beach, looking for shells, when suddenly Jonathan had discovered a very exciting shell, and he brought it to Megan to show her what he’d found – it was an oyster shell with the ring inside!

The Wedding

Megan and Jonathan’s wedding has to be one of the cheeriest-yet-relaxed weddings I’ve ever been to. No one was rushing around, everyone was just enjoying the day. It was a great change of pace! The ceremony took place at Megan’s family cottage, in Coboconk Ontario. It was a bright sunny day with great weather, which matched the sunflower-theme perfectly! I also thought a sunflower wedding in October was pretty unique – it was awesome!

Getting Ready

Megan and the girls got ready inside the cottage, while the boys got ready in the boathouse. Megan didn’t actually put her dress on until 5-minutes before the ceremony was to start, and even then she was laid back and relaxed, and just as happy as I’ve ever seen a bride be! She had her two bridesmaids with her, as well as her soon-to-be 6-year-old step-daughter, Eloise. It was easy to see how much Megan and Eloise care about each other, anyone could tell that Megan was just as much in love with Eloise as with Jonathan!

The Ceremony

The ceremony was held outdoors, in the cottage’s backyard right by the lake. There was a large white tent set-up in case of bad weather – but happily it wasn’t even needed as it was a bright sunny day! Megan and Jonathan were married underneath the white tent, in front of about 50 of their closest family and friends.

The Wedding Party

The wedding party consisted of two bridesmaids, and two groomsmen, as well as Jonathan’s 6-year-old daughter Eloise. What a great group!

The Newlyweds!

The bride and groom (and lots with Eloise as well, of course!) photos were also done at the cottage, which I was thrilled about because there were lots of great photo locations!

The Reception

After the photos were completed, we all traveled about 1-minute down the road to the Coboconk Legion building. The hall was decorated with sunflowers as well, and everyone was happily chatting and having a great time!

Right after Megan and Jonathan were announced in, Eloise ran up to them and they gave her a hug, then they proceeded to the front of the room, just in front of the head table, to do their first dance as husband and wife.

Holland Marsh Wineries Wedding Photographer | Newmarket Wedding Photographer


Jessica & Cameron’s Sneak Peeks

Now that Jessica and Cameron are back from their fabulous honeymoon in the Dominican Republic, I can share some sneak peek photos from their Holland Marsh Wineries wedding! They lucked out for sure, as just a few days after their wedding was when all this snow started falling!

They had an indoor ceremony (and a good decision that was, because it was coldddd outside!), which was lovely, and officiated by Jessica’s aunt.

After the ceremony, we did brave the cold and venture outside for a little bit to do some outdoor wedding photos, while the ceremony area indoors was converted to the reception room. (Moving chairs and tables.) Jess and Cam kindly did not make their guests join them outdoors – they enjoyed the warmth inside on the upper level while the room was being converted.

Megan & Jonathan’s Sneak Peeks

Megan and Jonathan had their Kawartha Lakes wedding ceremony at Megan’s lovely family cottage in Coboconk. It was a lovely outdoor ceremony, on a gorgeous day with perfect weather – what more could you ask for!

St. John Chrysostom | King’s Riding Golf Club


Sharon & Ryan

How They Met

Sharon and Ryan originally met by working together, in Thompson, Manitoba. Their cubicles were right next to each other in the office. When they first met and became friends, Sharon was wearing a hard hat and was angry about something and was walking angrily past the cubicles – but because she was shorter than the cubicle wall, all Ryan could see was this angry hard hat storming past. Of course he cracked up laughing.

Ryan used to stand up and talk to Sharon over their shared cubicle wall. At first Sharon thought Ryan seemed very nice, and he was very tall and had cute dimples. But she quickly realized that she couldn’t just lean over and talk to Ryan whenever she wanted, she had to walk all the way around the cubicles to talk to him!

They were friends for many years, but then one night they were at Ryan’s place – Ryan had just bought a brand new 3D TV and they ordered takeout sushi and watched a Blockbuster-rented (yes this was awhile ago!) Planet Earth in 3D to test out the new TV. Seven years later, they were engaged!

The Proposal

Ryan made Sharon a very nice dinner for her birthday (it was actually a couple days before her birthday, as on her actual birthday they were busy that whole weekend.) Along with dinner, Ryan hand-made fortune cookies (whoa!), and put personalized fortunes inside for dessert. He hid the ring inside Sharon’s fortune cookie, which Sharon almost didn’t open or eat, because she was too full. Ryan had to trick Sharon into opening the fortune cookie with the ring in it, by telling her “Oh, at least read the fortune!”, because apparently there was no plan B if Sharon refused to open another fortune cookie!

The Wedding

Sharon got ready in Newmarket, with some immediate family and a couple of close girlfriends. They had a very tight and busy schedule in the morning, including an incense offering and tea ceremony, so I met them at the St. John Chrysostom parish, also in Newmarket, just before the ceremony.

The Ceremony

Sharon and Ryan had an indoor Newmarket wedding ceremony, at the St. John Chrysostom Parish, in Newmarket. It was a HOT summer July day, but the light inside the parish was fantastic, and they had lots of fans running.

It was a catholic ceremony, lasting about an hour. Catholic ceremonies always give me plenty of time for photos! 😉

The Wedding Party

After the ceremony, I had a bit of a break while everyone went to lunch. We all then met at King’s Riding Golf Club in King City where the reception was going to be held. It was there that we did all of the photos.

The wedding party consisted of two bridesmaids (yes two, hang on…), two junior bridesmaids (see, I didn’t miss anyone!), and two groomsmen. They are a great group, and Jean had a great time driving a golf cart for the first time when she came to help us with the bride and groom photos (thanks Jean!)

Fantasy Farm Wedding Photographer | Toronto Wedding Photographer


Emily & Mandira’s Sneak Peeks

I was honoured to be Emily and Mandira’s Fantasy Farm wedding photographer! The weather was super hot, and it was threatening to rain and thunderstorm, but none of that put a damper on their fantastic wedding day!

Emily and Mandira had an all-female wedding party. Emily had her three daughters standing with her, and Mandira had her two cousins standing with her. Gotta love an all-female, all-family wedding party!

For anyone who doesn’t know, Fantasy Farm isn’t a farm at all – but it is a quaint and cozy little event center in Toronto, with tons of foliage all around. Thankfully the rain held off so we could do most of the photos outdoors!
