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!

Kristine and Outhith met at Sheridan College on February 26, 2010. They were in the same class. Outhith was very quiet, and he went to college just to focus on his studies. (Meanwhile, Kristine has a bubbly personality, and is very social.) Since Outhith was so quiet, Kristine thought he was so mysterious. He barely spoke or socialized with the other students.
Anyway, it was a very cold day, and Outhith asked Kristine to watch a movie called “Shutter Island” – and things took off from there!
After dating for eight years (and having a son together), Outhith decided it was time to propose. It was an evening in November, and Outhith took Kristine back to Sheridan College (where they first met). They had this favourite spot on campus, right by the pond where they used to hang out a lot in their college days. Outhith took her back there, and asked Kristine to marry him on bended-knee.
Kristine and Outhith had a small wedding in Bradford, at the home of Rev. Pamela Covert-Slater, on the anniversary of the day they met – February 26th! They are also planning a big destination wedding in Mexico next year (also on February 26th)!
Getting married in February, Kristine and Outhith were hoping for a “winter wonderland” type of wedding, with lots of snow. Oddly enough, everything melted the week leading up to their wedding! I used some photoshop magic to create a bit of snow for a few photos, just for fun 🙂

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!
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!
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!
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 was held indoors, because despite it being September, it was crazy hot outside! (It was something like 32*C)
Here’s where the golden dinosaurs come in!
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.
Congrats Emily & Bill!! I never thought about it until afterwards, but I left before you guys brought out the pinatas! D’oh!

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!
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!
Congrats Emily & Bill! I hope you are having an amazing time on your honeymoon!

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!
