Caledon Wedding Photographer | Elegant Rustic, Circus Acrobat, Canada 150 Wedding


Danielle & Kyle’s

Danielle and Kyle got married on Canada 150 this summer! They didn’t actually know it was Canada’s 150th birthday when they set their date, but it worked out – and it was certainly a big celebration! Spoiler alert: Danielle and Kyle’s wedding was AWESOME. Even cooler than this Caledon wedding photographer could have imagined! They had an antique Ford Model T car, acrobats, aerial silk dancer, a contortionist, farm animals, hay bales, an old log cabin, not one but TWO barns (including a “bar barn”), an old english telephone booth, a vintage carriage (which we didn’t end up using for photos, but it was still cool) and *drum roll*…. an ice cream truck!!!!

As easy as it would have been to have a “Canada 150 Wedding”, they didn’t go that route. Though Danielle did have her toes painted red with a Maple Leaf, and Kyle was wearing Canada-themed socks, that’s about the extent of the Canada-specific celebrations went. Really I would have to say that the ceremony was an “elegant rustic” theme, while the reception was more of a “circus acrobat” theme

How They Met

Danielle and Kyle met at Wynn Fitness, where Danielle worked. She was working at the juice bar, and Kyle was working out in the gym. Danielle used to offer Kyle free samples of smoothies, which he always declined. One day, a friend of Danielle’s offered to buy Kyle a Gatorade (this friend knew that Danielle had a huge crush on Kyle) and the three of them striked up a conversation. Kyle and Danielle eventually got to talking, and he said he had an old school Camaro, and Danielle asked to go for a ride. They went on their first official date to Tu Casa Restaurant, and were engaged 3.5 years later!

The Proposal

Danielle came home from work, opened the door, and Kyle was standing. He had candles, a bottle of wine and plant on the table beside him (all of which they already had). Kyle opened his laptop and there was a PowerPoint display, explaining how he loves Danielle and wants to spend the rest of his life with her. He then got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. Danielle, of course, said yes!

The Wedding

The entire wedding took place at Danielle’s father’s house. It was a great setup for a wedding! They had an outdoor ceremony in front of an old log cabin (which was a bit risky because it lightly rained on and off for a bit, but it stopped raining just in time!). The reception was held in the main barn on the property. The barn next to the main barn was the “Bar barn” where the drinks were served.

Getting Ready

The girls got ready in the house. Since it was raining on and off during this part of the day, I opted to do most of the detail photos indoors. (Well, except the shoe photos, I did those on the covered porch.)

During a “rain break”, I did get Danielle’s dress hung up on the porch of the house for some photos – I just love how they turned out!

Danielle’s bridesmaids helped her get ready, and it was impressive to me because I didn’t have to pose or “stage” anything! They were just doing their thing (perfectly photogenically might I add!) naturally! It’s rare and awesome for me as a Caledon wedding photographer when this happens.

Look at these two! Ready to get hitched! Danielle had Kyle choose his own suit, and it was to be a surprise for her – so at this point she had no idea what he was going to show up in!

The Ceremony

Danielle was driven across the property by her father, in his old Ford Model T antique car. (It was quite the effort to stuff that huge wedding gown in there! lol).

Often when I see dads escorting their brides down the aisle, they generally have a very stoic or serious look on their faces. I love how Danielle’s dad was all smiles! (And any guy I’ve photographed, knows how happy I was with the “hand in pocket” lol!)

Since Danielle and Kyle didn’t do a First Look, the first time Kyle saw his bride was when she walked down the aisle with her father. I always love to do the shot above (right), as it captures the groom’s face as he watches his bride come down the aisle!

Wooden benches were set-up for the guests to watch the ceremony, and they (was it Kyle? I think so, but I might be wrong) built a platform for them and the officiant to stand on during the ceremony.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds went back to the antique car and got in the back, and Danielle’s father escorted them back up to where the reception & cocktail hour was going to take place.

The Wedding Party

Although the wedding party didn’t stand up with Danielle and Kyle during the ceremony (they were sitting in the front rows), they certainly were still a big part of their day!

Little Clarke was a most adorable flower girl!

The Newlyweds!

I suppose now is a good time to mention that Danielle is a professional acrobat! When I asked what was the most important photo they wanted taken, she said “Me doing a handstand in my dress” – and so, that was the very first “Bride and groom” photo we did!

I’m going to pause here for a moment just to mention, that while Danielle, Kyle and I were doing their photos, the guests were enjoying drinks and appetizers at cocktail hour. But amongst the guests mingling around were two awesome acrobats (and friends of Danielle’s) who were performing while walking around the crowd!

Anyway, back to the bride and groom photos, we did photos all around the property. Danielle and Kyle are so photogenic, they made my job easy! Though I suppose, with Danielle’s job she’s probably very used to having cameras around!

The Reception

As I mentioned earlier, the reception was held in the main barn on the property. Danielle and Kyle did a beautiful job of decorating it!

When guests first entered the barn, they greeted the newlyweds and some of the wedding party in a short receiving line, and then were greeted by the acrobats who were performing during cocktail hour. The acrobats did a “champagne pour”, where one of them was sitting up in the silks dangling from the ceiling pouring the champagne into a glass the other acrobat was holding, and then handing out to guests. I’m told Danielle is usually the one up in the silks pouring the champagne when she does events!

The MC was none other than Danielle’s friend and contortionist, Gabriella! Two bridesmaids carried a purple suitcase into the middle of the barn, which Gabriella came out of and did a short performance before announcing the entrance of the bride and groom.

During the reception, the main event was the incredible aerial silks performance by Danielle’s friend and bridesmaid, and one of Kyle’s best friends, Jennifer Roy! Honestly, I took so many awesome photos during her 8-minute performance, that I couldn’t just choose one or two for the blog. So have a scroll, here are all my favourites 😉

As you can see (above right), Danielle was moved to tears by Jen’s awesome performance! Danielle herself can also perform the aerial silks. Sidenote for Danielle: My daughter really wants to see you perform sometime 😉

As if all of the above wasn’t exciting enough – an ice cream truck showed up!

Even though it wasn’t quite dark enough, we went ahead and did a sparkler exit anyway before I was done for the night. Fun times!

Town of Newmarket Wedding Photographer


Carol & Aaron’s Sneak Peeks

Carol and Aaron just got home from their honeymoon in Las Vegas, so it’s time to share some sneak peeks from their fabulous Newmarket wedding!

They had a civil ceremony at the Town of Newmarket municipal offices, and then after some photos near Fairy Lake, they had their wedding reception at Cachet Restaurant in Newmarket – a place I’ve driven past practically daily for the past 6 years but have never gone into until last week!

Carol wore a light pink wedding dress, and was as gorgeous as a “Barbie doll” (her words 😉 ). She looked amazing, and I’m sure Aaron thought so too when he first saw her coming down the aisle!

Caledon Wedding Photographer | Canada 150 Elegant Rustic Circus Wedding


Danielle & Kyle’s Sneak Peeks

Every Canadian will always remember what they were doing on Canada’s 150th birthday! I was Danielle and Kyle’s Caledon wedding photographer, photographing their EPIC Canada 150 wedding!

Danielle and Kyle’s wedding literally had everything – including circus acrobats!

Danielle is an acrobat (and an acro instructor!), and as she said in her speech, she couldn’t imagine her wedding without “a little bit of circus”. There was an incredible aerial silk performer, two acrobats that performed during cocktail hour, a contortionist, an antique car, farm animals, hay bales, old log cabins, not one but TWO barns (including a “bar barn”), an old english telephone booth, a vintage carriage (which we didn’t end up using for photos, but it was still cool) and *drum roll*…. an ice cream truck!!

Here’s a peek into their day!

Before their wedding day, I ask all my clients what’s the #1 photo that they want. Most brides say “Me and my new husband”, or “Us and our families”, but not Danielle. Nope, the #1 photo she most wanted was, and I quote, “Handstand picture”. She wanted a picture of her doing a handstand in her wedding dress. Yep, it happened! (Yes, the sparkly white tennis shoes were her wedding shoes!)

Another “must have” photo for Danielle was the sparkler exit photo. It wasn’t really dark enough when we did it, but we made it work!

Newmarket Wedding Photographer | Holland Marsh Wineries


Katie & Kyle

One of the perks of being a Newmarket wedding photographer, is that there are SO many great venues in this area, one of them being perfect for a lovely vineyard wedding, the Holland Marsh Wineries! Katie and Kyle added to their rustic vineyard ambiance with something they love to do together – woodworking & crafts!! And as you’ll see, they did a beautiful job!

The Early Days (How They Met & The Proposal)

Katie was having trouble with her car, so a friend/co-worker recommended that she take her car to this particular repair shop. Little did she know, her friend was playing matchmaker, because he knew that Kyle worked at this repair shop! Katie took her car in, and when she met Kyle her first thought was “He’s so thoughtful and… tall.” (That’s true, Kyle IS really tall!). Kyle meanwhile, was thinking “She seems really sweet… and she really needs a new car.” They went on their first date to a restaurant in Unionville, then they went on a walk. A short 5 months later, Kyle proposed on bended knee on the dock at Sibbald Point Provincial Park.

The Wedding

Katie and Kyle had their summer vineyard wedding on a gorgeous day in July. They brought a ton of woodworking projects they created themselves to add to the rustic feel of the day – wooden photo frames hanging from the trees to serve as a photo booth, benches for their guests to sit on, and lots of signage!

There were 6 children in the wedding party, and one of those children was a MOST adorable little flower girl named Rachel! Katie let Rachel try on the dress (adorable), and Rachel helped Katie put her shoes on. She really was the perfect flower girl!

At the Holland Marsh Wineries, there are many places where the ceremony could be set up. Katie and Kyle chose one of my favourite places – right in front of the pond! The lighting is great there in the afternoon, so that made me one happy Newmarket wedding photographer 🙂

With this many kids in the wedding party, you have to let them run around and have fun! So we incorporated that into a few photos, of course!

Katie and Kyle were total naturals in front of the camera!

Katie & Kyle’s Wedding Sneak Peeks

This past Saturday, Katie and Kyle got married at the Holland Marsh Wineries! They lucked into beautiful weather for their Newmarket wedding, which was perfect for their outdoor ceremony by the pond (my favourite ceremony area at the Holland Marsh Wineries!).

Katie and Kyle included their niece and 5 nephews in their ceremony – and they were all incredibly well behaved! Rachel was an amazing flower girl, and the best little helper!

There was a lot of woodworking done at the wedding. Custom signs, photo frames for the “photo booth”, and even benches for the guests! All the woodworking was designed and created by Katie and Kyle themselves – very impressive!

As I said earlier, the ceremony was outdoors by the pond – my favourite ceremony location at the Holland Marsh Wineries! The reason for this is simple: You can’t beat the gorgeous background AND the trees provide fantastic shade as well! It’s just perfect!

Due to a tight timeline, I only had about 15 minutes to do the bride and groom photos – but I planned for this ahead of time, and we made very good use of our time! We have a ton of gorgeous photos to show for it too! (I can’t wait to share more!)
