Hockley Valley Wedding Photos | Orangeville Wedding Photographer


Shannon & Kyle’s Sneak Peeks

I knew Shannon and Kyle’s Hockley Valley wedding photos would be different, because this time, the bride was my sister! Shannon has always been unique – hilarious, random, and a bit crazy. 😉

Above (right), yes, that’s my daughter wearing a hotdog costume. Sadly it wouldn’t fit over Shannon’s wedding dress (she owns the costume), but I’d say it was definitely the highlight of the reception!

Anyway, I’m getting ahead of myself!

Shannon and Kyle got married at the Hockley Valley Resort in Mono, Ontario (15 minutes from of Orangeville). It was a HOT summer July day, and the weather forecast wasn’t looking good…

But by some miracle, the rain held off and we had clear skies until later in the evening! (The heat was still pretty brutal though! I’d say 2nd only to the heat on Sabrina & Mason’s wedding day!)

I was Shannon’s matron of honour (and wedding day coordinator, I had my video camera on a tripod that I was moving around, and my 3 kids were there so I had to play “mom”, as well as “dance mom” with some costume changes since my kids did 2 performances during the reception – I wore a lot of hats that day!), so Julie from Julie Broadbent Photography came out and shot most of the day for me up until the beginning of the reception, when my matron of honour duties were over, and I could take over the photography. (I’m doing all the post-processing.) Julie was the perfect photographer for the job, as she knows Hockley Valley Resort like the back of her hand, and was just generally wonderful! Thank you Julie!!

Shannon and Kyle got married outdoors, under the lovely draped tent on the Montclair Patio, and the reception was held in the Aida ballroom.

As it turns out, my daughter is quite the partier. She danced until the reception ended at 1am, and then she helped us clean up!

Newmarket Wedding Photographer | Newmarket Wedding Photos | Madsen’s Greenhouse


Corrie & Justin

I have some Newmarket wedding photos to share today! Corrie and Justin got married at the ever-popular Madsen’s Greenhouse in Newmarket. I’ve thought long and hard about how to describe the “theme” of Corrie and Justin’s wedding. There was foliage, birdcages, birch tree decorations, leaves, lavender… after much thought I’ve decided to describe it as an “Enchanted Forest” theme. It was truly beautiful! (Well done, Corrie!).

How They Met

Now here is something you don’t hear too often… Corrie and Justin met while they were on vacation in Cuba! Justin was there with his buddy Alex, and Corrie was there with her 2 friends (Lauren and Kristen). Lauren wanted to meet Alex because they both went to Brock University. They all ended up hanging out together for the rest of the vacation, and they had a blast together! Corrie and Justin both thought that they had a lot of fun together, but they assumed they would never see each other again once they got back to Canada.

When they got home from Cuba, they added each other on Facebook and exchanged phone numbers. Since Corrie worked at a golf course, and Justin loves golf, Corrie invited Justin to go golfing. It was the summer, so they also attended various pool parties and outdoor get-togethers before they actually started dating.

The Proposal

It wasn’t until 8 years later that Justin popped the question! It was the weekend after Corrie’s birthday and Justin had planned an outing for that weekend, which was a complete surprise. Corrie came home from work and was greeted with flowers and wine. It took a while to notice, eventually Corrie noticed that her adorable dog Ava was wearing a new custom dog tag, which asked if Corrie wanted to marry Justin. Of course Corrie said yes! We celebrated by doing a waterfall tour and visiting the Eugenia waterfalls and a couple others, and exploring the outdoors for the day. Corrie said it was perfect!

The Wedding

The Bride & Groom!

Once Corrie and Justin were all pretty, they opted to do a First Look so they could maximize the time with their guests after the ceremony.
After that we went right into bride & groom photos. I must say, these two are fantastic in front of a camera! I don’t think I’ve ever shot so many bride & groom photos in such a short period of time!

The Ceremony

It was a perfect day to have an outdoor ceremony!

The Reception

Here’s where I will show you a bit of what I’m calling the “Enchanted Forest” decor!

I LOVE how Corrie and Justin did their seating chart! The logs, the moss… love it! And the head table “Mr. & Mrs” sign? Come on – it’s perfect!

Reception tables! It all goes together so elegantly. And the birch-tree-candle favors (made by Justin!)? Adorable.

This is not a real cake (Corrie and her mom baked cupcakes!), but it is such a cool idea! If I remember correctly, Corrie told me her mom made this faux-cake out of pieces of birch tree, and then made a cute little cake topper with pinecones, decorating them to look like a bride and groom. And she even included a dog, to represent Corrie and Justin’s dog Ava!

I always love to see how couples can decorate the same venue differently!

All in all, it was a fantastic day, and I’m just thrilled I got to be a part of it!

Congrats Corrie & Justin!

#StephWedsMarc2017

Kettleby Wedding Photographer | The Manor Wedding Photos


Stephanie & Marc

How They Met

Stephanie and Marc first met online, and then had their first date at Lucky Strike bowling alley at the Vaughan Mills mall (which has since closed down.) When they first saw each other in-person, Stephanie thought “Wow he’s tall, and cute!”, while Marc was thinking to himself “She’s cute!”. They dated for almost 4 years before Marc popped the question!

The Proposal

Marc proposed to Stephanie while they were on vacation in St. Maarten, on Happy Bay Beach.

The Wedding

Stephanie and Marc held their wedding ceremony and reception at The Manor, in Kettleby. They lucked into a gorgeous day, which was perfect for their outdoor ceremony!

Getting Ready

Stephanie and Marc both got ready in separate rooms on the top floor of The Manor, along with their wedding party.

The Ceremony

Stephanie and Marc’s ceremony was held outdoors by the water. Their guests sat in the shade under the big white tent that’s usually set up on the back patio at The Manor. Stephanie and Marc didn’t do a First Look, so the first time Marc saw his bride was when she was walking down the aisle with her father.

The Wedding Party & The Newlyweds!

Stephanie and Marc had a fantastic wedding party who were a lot of fun! After some wedding party photos, I took photos of Kettleby’s newest married couple all around the back of The Manor’s property.

Carol & Aaron’s Wedding

How They Met

Aaron’s best friend Eric, lived across the street from Carol. Carol met Eric, and he invited her over one day to hang out, and she met Aaron. Carol and Aaron didn’t see each other until the next year. Then, they exchanged phone numbers and went on their first date the next week. Their first date was at St. Louis Wings Bar & Grill.

The Proposal

Three and a half years after their first date, Carol and Aaron went on a weekend vacation to Niagara Falls to celebrate their birthdays. They took a ride on the skywheel, and when they reached the top, Aaron proposed!

The Wedding

Getting Ready

Carol got ready at her mother’s house in Newmarket – and yes, as you’ll see in the photos below, she wore a light pink wedding dress!

The Ceremony

The Newlyweds!

After the ceremony, we went behind the municipal building into the gardens and did some family photos. After that, the guests all went off to Cachet Restaurant where the reception was going to be held, while the newlyweds and I went next door to Fairy Lake, and took some photos of the two of them together.

Sutton Wedding Photographer | Rosie’s Place


Lily & Ahmad

Rosie's Place wedding photos by Sutton wedding photographer www.jnphotography.ca @filemanager

It’s not too often you marry the same person twice, but that’s exactly what Lily and Ahmad did! Lily got a teaching job in Vietnam, and to get the paperwork done in time, they legally got married in February. Then they had their wedding in July, at Sutton’s newest wedding venue, Rosie’s Place! I was honoured to be their Sutton wedding photographer for their big celebration!

Rosie's Place wedding photos by Sutton wedding photographer www.jnphotography.ca @filemanager

How They Met

In the very beginning, Ahmad and Lily met in high school. Ahmad was friends with Lily’s twin brother, Chris. Chris and Lily went to separate high schools, so Lily met Ahmad when he came over to visit Chris.

Flash forward to when they were in university: Lily came home from spending a summer studying in Venice, Italy. Ahmad was working at the local Petro-Can gas station. Ahmad ran into Lily’s family there, who told him about her travels. He texted her asking about the trip, and they started “seeing each other” that summer. By the end of the summer, they were officially a couple. Five years later, they were married!

The Wedding

Getting Ready

Lily and Ahmad actually got ready together for their wedding! They thought it would be easier, plus technically, they were already married anyway 😉

The Ceremony & Reception

The wedding ceremony and reception were held at Rosie’s Place. The ceremony was outdoors, and the reception was held the beautiful barn filled with authentic antique decor! Lifestyles Catering served mouth-watering foods from all around the globe – which was fitting since Lily is such a world-traveller!

Since Lily and Ahmad were already married, they didn’t need an officiant. Instead, their wedding party took turns reading lines from the original ceremony.

The Wedding Party

Another unique wedding element, was their almost-entirely male wedding party! The guys on the bride’s side wore shades of warm colours (yellow, orange, red, pink, etc.), and the guys on the groom’s side wore cool colours (green, purple, blue). Malini was not only the Maid of Honour (and only female attendant), but she was deemed by several people (including herself) as “the best person at the wedding”. Malini – you are awesome! (I know her response would be “I know.” haha.)

The Newlyweds!

We literally just walked all over the property and took photos – Rosie’s Place has tons of great photo spots!
