I can’t really think of any more to say beyond what I already said in Paula and Leanne’s wedding sneak peek blog post. Their Kettleby wedding day at The Manor was perfect. The weather was fantastic (a bit chilly and windy though), both brides looked beautiful, and the day was full of pure happiness and joy.
How They Met
Paula and Leanne met playing baseball (Ladies Slo-Pitch) in Richmond Hill. When they met, Leanne was intrigued. Paula’s first thought was “I’ve got to get to know this girl!”. They went on their first date at the Haunted Magic Hill Farm.
After five years of dating, Paula and Leanne went to a baseball game, and Paula proposed on bended knee.
After a long engagement (another five years!), Paula and Leanne tied the knot on a gorgeous fall day in October, at The Manor in Kettleby.
I’m not usually surprised by much when I show up at weddings, because I have a thorough pre-wedding workflow, but Leanne surprised me when I saw her brooch bouquet that she made herself! What an amazing job she did on it too!
Before the ceremony, both brides were happy and excited!
An indoor ceremony was planned, which was probably a good thing since it was windy and chilly (yet gorgeous) outside!
The lovely wedding party!
These two lovely ladies were so photogenic, and genuinely happy, it made them naturals in front of the camera! Which in turn, made my job pretty easy 😉
Following the reception entrance, there they did the traditional Jewish Hora dance. I love these cultural traditions, they’re all so unique and symbolic in their own way – and also usually a lot of fun!
Paula actually fell off her chair the first time! I had never seen that before, but it wasn’t a big deal. Everyone was laughing and having a great time! Leanne looked like she was having the time of her life!
Look at the cakes! The attention to detail was pretty impressive! Kelli did a fantastic job!
Thanks to Paula’s very expressive face, these two photos below are now officially my favourite “feeding the cake to each other” photos EVER!
Thank you Paula and Leanne for having me be a part of your wonderful day! I had an absolute blast documenting your wedding!

Today I get to share some of The Manor wedding photos, from Paula and Leanne’s perfect fall wedding day! Paula and Leanne lucked into an absolutely perfect autumn day to have their wedding at The Manor in Kettleby! It was a bit chilly, but beautiful! And who doesn’t love the fall colours? To go with the season, Paula and Leanne chose burnt orange as their wedding colour!
When I arrived, both brides were very excited, a little bit nervous, and definitely thinking about each other. They wondered how the other one was doing, if they were happy/excited, etc etc. The two photos below are of the brides during the “getting ready” part of the day, before they saw each other at their indoor ceremony.
At the reception, Leanne’s brother was the MC. One of the things he said (and I’m paraphrasing because I can’t remember exactly) was “There are a lot of words to describe Paula and Leanne, but I think the best one is HAPPY.” Truer words were never spoken! The brides were just happy, carefree and full of joy, all day! I love the photo below on the right, it was a candid shot but you can just feel the happiness – just look at the smile on Leanne’s face! (And Leanne made that gorgeous brooch bouquet herself!)
I remember when I took the photo on the left so vividly. Leanne was walking down this walkway, and Paula was standing next to me. Leanne’s dress was flared out behind her and it just about took Paula’s breath away. She said to me “Wow. She is so beautiful.”, and when I looked over at Paula, she just seemed entranced by Leanne’s beauty. It was a really great moment.
Then I told Paula “Hey, go join her over there.”…
Did I mention the incredible fall colours? The best ones were right out front, and right by the parking lot, and I don’t happen to be a fan of parked cars in the backgrounds of my photos – but we made due 😉
Congrats Paula & Leanne! It was an absolute pleasure documenting your wedding day! You are both so warm and welcoming (and have the best sense of humours!), and really made me feel like I was hanging out with some friends one one of the most important and memorable days of their lives. By the way, you two are now officially my favourite “cake cutting and feeding it to each other” couple of all time. See photos below 😉
