King’s Riding Wedding | King City Wedding Photographer | King’s Riding Golf Club
Erin & Michael
Erin and Michael had ALL the weather for their King’s Riding wedding! It was cloudy, it rained, it hailed, it snowed, it was sunny, and it was consistently cold. But through all of that, Erin and Michael had a fantastic day with their family and friends, and they ended up married (which is the important part 😉 ) at the end of it all!
How They Met
Technically, the first time Erin and Michael met, was on separate bike rides at a stop light. Officially, they met at a winter spin class! They went on their first date at Spuntini restaurant in Toronto. I assume things went well, because 4 years (minus 1 day) later, they were engaged!
Michael proposed in February, at home, while they were getting ready to take the dog for a walk.
Everyone got ready at the King’s Riding Golf Club, in separate areas. It was nice because everyone was in close-proximity, but at the same time it was easy to make sure that Erin and Michael didn’t see each other before the ceremony!
The First Look
Erin and Michael opted to do a First Look before the ceremony. It was a bit chilly, but worth it! (Though, I may be biased, because I think that better quality photos are always worth temporarily freezing. Luckily it wasn’t THAT cold. ha)
After a quick gift exchange, we were off to do photos of the soon-to-be husband & wife!
By the time we were done photos, Erin and Michael were prettyyy cold, so they decided to move the ceremony indoors. Hurray warmth!

Melissa & Andrew
How They Met
Melissa and Andrew were working at the same golf course in Guelph, the Cutten Club. At first, Andrew thought Melissa was “too loud” and didn’t really like her. So, Melissa decided that since he didn’t like her, she would ignore him and not pay him any attention. Turns out, Andrew got over that, as he asked Melissa out and they went on their first date to Woolwich Arms (also in Guelph) for dinner. Seven years later, he popped the question!
Andrew and Melissa have a cat names Kinsley. One night, she got outside and disappeared for 16 days. On the morning after she came back home, Melissa and Andrew were laying in bed, and Andrew reached into his bedside table to pull out the ring. He turned to Melissa and asked “Now that our family is back together, will you marry me?”.
Melissa and Andrew got married on a sunny August day, at the Summit Golf Club in Richmond Hill. They chose to have a Summit Golf Club wedding, because Melissa’s father has been a member there for over 20 years. (Side note, my own father is also a member there! So I already knew the place quite well.)
The wedding ceremony was held on the back patio, with the famous 18th hole in the background. Anyone who’s been to the Summit Golf Club has admired the view!

Melissa & Andrew’s Sneak Peeks
Melissa and Andrew live in Thunder Bay, so I didn’t actually meet either of them in-person until their wedding day! I was however, very familiar with their wedding venue. My dad has been a member of the Summit Golf Club since 1983, and since Melissa’s dad is also a member there, it was a great venue for their wedding.
Being a Summit Golf Club wedding photographer was interesting because rather than just going there for dinner or their annual Canada Day BBQ and fireworks (I’m not a golfer, ha), I was now looking at it from a photographer’s point of view. Meaning, I was looking for where the sun was, the direction of the light, the quality of the light, as well as considering the best backgrounds… all while avoiding getting hit by golf balls 😉
Congrats Melissa & Andrew!

Newmarket Wedding Photographer | Redcrest Golf Club
Lauren & Sergey
Lauren and Sergey are a fun, laid-back couple, and I was honoured to be able to document their wedding at the Redcrest Golf Club in Newmarket!
How They Met
Lauren and Sergey met online. When they planned to meet in-person at a local coffee shop, Lauren was nervous, but as soon as she saw Sergey she had a great feeling in her heart. They clicked right away! After some coffee, they went for a walk and talked about a million different things. Lauren had told Sergey before they met to please not tell her what had happened on Breaking Bad the night before, because she hadn’t watched it yet. They walked for a long time and ended up in a park. Sergey’s car was parked at this park (he had walked from the park to the coffee shop to meet Lauren, which she found out later), and in his trunk was his laptop with the latest episode of Breaking Bad on it for us to watch together on the bleachers at the park! Their love story took off from there, and 15 months later, they were engaged!
Sergey took Lauren completely by surprise when he proposed to her on Christmas Eve (during the day) back in 2014. Lauren didn’t even realize that Sergey had paid attention to which ring she liked! They spent the day celebrating with family and friends.
Sergey arrived at Redcrest first, and Lauren arrived shortly after, wearing a knee-length Ralph Lauren dress, and looking fabulous (of course!)
They did a first look, and they were both so happy and excited to see each other! It was great!
We started off the bride & groom portraits with their dog, Lucy!! How cute is little Lucy!!
Then of course, photos of just the bride and groom!
We actually weren’t planning on doing any photos with the barn at Redcrest, but I’m glad we did because I do love the texture of it in the background!
The outdoor ceremony was held on the patio behind the clubhouse. It was a wonderful day for an outdoor ceremony because of the beautiful blue skies and nice weather!
While we were doing family photos, the golf course’s huge sprinkler’s came on in the background, so of course we had to grab a quick photo of that!
Before I continue, I should say that Anne-Marie and her staff at Redcrest are phenomenal. They are organized, friendly, and totally on top of EVERYTHING! Seriously fantastic staff. Anyway, moving on!
Lauren and Sergey did a pretty special first dance in Redcrest’s clubhouse. What made it so special was that Sergey wrote, composed, and recorded their first dance song! It’s called “We Are the Stars”. (If you want to hear it, watch the slideshow below.)
A set of little crocheted bears holding a heart with Lauren and Sergey’s initials on it, sat with them at the head table. Those bears were made by their very talented 11-year-old niece Geneva! Geneva crochets these adorable bears (among other things I’m sure), and I told her that I want a little bear holding a camera – and I totally do!
With a gorgeous sunset like that, of course we had to take just a couple more pictures! It was actually a very powerful sunset, a golden orange glow covered the entire back of the clubhouse!
All in all, it was a wonderful day spent with wonderful people! So often lately it seems like I’m spending the day with friends, rather than working. Congrats Lauren and Sergey! I’m so happy for the both of you, and also happy that I finally got to meet LUCY! 😉
