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.

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!

Kettleby Wedding Photographer | The Manor


Paula & Leanne

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.

The Proposal

After five years of dating, Paula and Leanne went to a baseball game, and Paula proposed on bended knee.

The Wedding

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!

Toronto Wedding Photographer | Darchei Noam Synagogue


Alana & Michael

Alana and Michael’s story is something movies are made of – they met, it was love at first sight, and within 8 months they were married!

How They Met

Alana and Michael met online through a dating app. They went on their first date (a romantic walk through the woods), and it was love at first sight! Alana knew it was going to work out, and so did Michael. He knew right away that Alana was going to be his next girlfriend. What he didn’t know at the time (of course), was that he would end up marrying her within 8 months of meeting!

The Proposal

After just 6 months of dating, they were both certain – they wanted to be together forever. They were just hanging out, having casual conversation, and they started talking about getting married. They both agreed it had to happen – so why wait!

The Wedding

Alana and Michael both got ready at home, so when I got there we did a quick First Look, then went right into bride & groom photos.

Since it was the end of October, we used the beautiful fall colours in the backyard as a backdrop. It worked out beautifully (except it was pretty cold and poor Alana was freezing – but you can’t tell that from the photos!)!

For the ceremony, we travelled a short distance to the Darchei Noam Synagogue. I had never been there before, but it is a wonderful venue with lots of space. Rabbi Tina Grimberg was wonderful!

I really love the “breaking the glass” tradition at Jewish weddings. It’s such a great way to end the ceremony, with a big POP!

Toronto Wedding Photographer | Darchei Noam Synagogue


Alana & Michael’s Sneak Peeks

Alana and Michael had their fairly traditional Jewish wedding ceremony at the Darchei Noam Synagogue in Toronto, but for their sneak peek photos, I’ve chosen a few of my favourite portraits from their day! Even though it was the end of October, there were still some beautiful fall colours in their backyard that made a wonderful background.
