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!)

Isn’t the cake topper absolutely PERFECT? haha, I love it!

Sharon & Ryan’s Sneak Peeks

I had the best time at Sharon and Ryan’s King’s Riding wedding! They had their ceremony at St. John’s Chrysostom Parish in Newmarket, then they had their reception at King’s Riding Golf Club in King City. I love King’s Riding because there are so many great photo spots, and the staff are fantastic!

Sharon and Ryan are so wonderful – plus as an added bonus, Sharon is hilarious and being around her just makes you happy. At one point near the end of the day, she told me that her guests were wonderful, and she didn’t regret inviting any of them, so that’s always good! haha

Sharon and Ryan had two groomsmen, two bridesmaids, and two junior bridesmaids at their wedding. They’re a great group!

As I mentioned earlier, King’s Riding has lots of great photo locations (I just love shooting there!), and Sharon and Ryan lucked into a beautiful day!

I really like the photo below on the right for some reason. Foreshadowing perhaps? 😉 It’s kind of like a “stages of life” photo. ha.

Georgina Wedding Photographer | Georgina ROC Chalet Wedding Photos


Golden Dinosaurs | The Simpsons


Emily & Bill

“Dinosaurs are the best, so just calm down.”

Emily and Bill’s Georgina ROC Chalet wedding had very elegant decor with a “light sprinkling” of golden dinosaurs (yes, golden dinosaurs), and was accented with elements from The Simpsons. Most of the guests were wondering “What’s up with the golden dinosaurs?” and they all had to wait for the bride and groom’s speech to find out the answer – the answer was the quote above 😉

How They Met

Originally, Emily and Bill met on the internet. When they met in-person, they actually met outside a subway station in Toronto (because Emily was running late. ha). On their first date, they went to a pub, and they talked for hours. Bill got tipsy and was a super gentleman and insisted on escorting Emily home on the subway, bus, then subway, then to her car. Then, Emily drove him home because she was sober. They dated for 18 months before getting engaged!

The Proposal

Bill woke Emily up before my night-shift with coffee and a ring, and asked “So… you wanna get hitched?” Apparently this was a great way to wake up, because Emily said yes!

The Wedding


As I mentioned earlier, there were elements of The Simpsons TV show here and there. (The golden dinosaurs I’ll get into more when I get to the Reception part of the blog.) One of those was Bill’s cufflinks – which are replicas of the cufflinks from the Simpsons episode of Lisa’s wedding!

The Newlyweds!


Emily and Bill did a First Look (most people will tap the groom on the shoulder or poke them or something, Emily went with the always popular, ass-grab.), and all their bride & groom photos before the ceremony, so they could mingle with guests right after the ceremony.

The Ceremony


The ceremony was held indoors, because despite it being September, it was crazy hot outside! (It was something like 32*C)

Someone (not Emily), added to the golden dinosaur cake toppers, by dressing them with a tiny bouquet, and floral bow-tie!

The first dance was done in the same area as the ceremony, but the arch was moved away.

The ROC Wedding Photographer | Georgina Wedding Photographer


Emily & Bill’s Sneak Peeks

Emily and Bill held their ROC wedding on an unusually blazing hot day at the end of September. It was somewhere around 35*C! Besides the unusual heat, everything went absolutely perfectly!
The ROC wedding photos by Georgina wedding photographer www.jnphotography.ca @filemanager

Emily and Bill had very elegant decor with a “light sprinkling” of golden dinosaurs – yes, golden dinosaurs. A lot of people were asking “What’s up with the golden dinosaurs?” and they all had to wait for the bride and groom’s speech to find out the answer. I believe Emily’s exact words were “Dinosaurs are the best, so just calm down.” hahaha!

Kettleby Wedding Photographer | The Manor


Amanda & Kenny

I honestly can’t say enough good things about Amanda and Kenny! Being their Kettleby wedding photographer was an absolute joy! Amanda and Kenny are such sweet, kind people – and they are totally adorable together!

How They Met

Amanda and Kenny met in 2007, at their work in Toronto. When they first met, Amanda thought Kenny was cute, but a bit of a know-it-all. Kenny thought Amanda was sweet and innocent (Amanda laughs at that, but I can totally see that! Amanda definitely gives off a sweet/innocent vibe!). They went on their first date to Jack Astors, in the Scarborough Town Centre, and 6 years later, Kenny proposed.

The Proposal

Kenny proposed (and I can only assume he did it in a most adorable manner) while he and Amanda were on a trip to Nigara-on-the-Lake. Amanda said yes at the Price of Wales hotel. They planned their wedding for a little over 18 months before tying the knot!

The Wedding

Amanda and Kenny had a beautiful sunny day for their wedding – which was perfect for their outdoor ceremony at The Manor, right in front of the gazebo, and overlooking the water.

I was especially excited for this wedding, not only because Amanda and Kenny are such a sweet couple, but also because they had my top 3 favourite wedding details! A poofy dress, a looonnngggg veil, and fog during their First Dance!

If I had to describe it, I would say that Amanda and Kenny had a very classic, traditional wedding.
Everything just seemed so perfect! I mean, look at Amanda’s bouquet – it’s perfect!

The bridal suite that the girls were in was great. It had a big window, and lots of light!

The photo below reminds me of that moment so vividly. Amanda was getting ready and then she turned, looked at herself in the mirror, took a deep breath and said “Okay…. I am ready to get married now.” And it was this big moment, like all of the planning that she had done for the past year-and-a-half had finally all come together, and she was ready to enjoy the day, and marry the love of her life.

Amanda’s mother passed away a few years ago, and they did a Rose Ceremony in memory of her mother, during the ceremony, but we also wanted to do a special photo as well. I love how it came out.

Some pre-ceremony bridal portraits!

I just love these two photos below. Amanda with the adorable flower girl, Brooklyn – Brooklyn looking up at Amanda and Amanada smiling down at Brooklyn… it’s just perfect! Amanda’s grandmother putting on her bracelet was such a nice moment as well. It’s so rare for grandparents to be involved in the “getting ready” part of the day, I love it!

The awesome wedding party! (No, you aren’t seeing double, Kenny and his Best Man are identical twins! I found that out on the day of the wedding. That was a fun surprise. Ha. Actually I vaguely remember Kenny telling me at our initial consultation that he had a twin, but I didn’t think much of it.)

The gorgeous bridesmaids! Sarah (the blonde one), traveled all the way from Vancouver to be in Amanda’s bridal party!

Fog during the First Dance – yep another one of my favourite wedding details! It somehow just makes it more magical – like dancing in the clouds.

The newlyweds at their beautiful sweetheart table! Sweetheart tables are getting more and more popular, I’ve noticed! (They are the “head table” at the reception, except only the bride and groom sit there.)

Amanda and her brother danced to “You Are Not Alone” by Michael Jackson, and the WHOLE room was in tears. It was beautiful.

And of course, Kenny danced with his mother. His mom (who is so kind and wonderful!) seemed a bit emotional – but I know that when my sons get married, and I dance with them at their weddings, I’m going to be a blubbering mess, so I totally get it.

To Amanda and Kenny – your wedding day was absolutely perfect, and I’m SO thrilled I got to be a part of it! Congrats to both of you and your families!
