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!)

King’s Riding’s reception room has windows on three sides, so it’s nice and bright!

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.

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!

The Proposal

Michael proposed in February, at home, while they were getting ready to take the dog for a walk.

The Wedding

Getting Ready

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)

The Newlyweds!

After a quick gift exchange, we were off to do photos of the soon-to-be husband & wife!

The Ceremony

By the time we were done photos, Erin and Michael were prettyyy cold, so they decided to move the ceremony indoors. Hurray warmth!

Natalie & Brad

How They Met

Natalie and Brad first met online, and chatted through the computer for awhile before speaking on the phone. Even early on, they could tell that there was something special between them. When they finally met in-person, they took a walk on the beach, went for lunch at The Salty Dog on Queen St. East in Toronto, and then walked around downtown Toronto and talked some more.

After two and a half years of dating, Brad proposed, and shortly after that, they secured me as their King City wedding photographer!

The Wedding

The Details

I’ll admit, I had a little too much fun doing the ring photos!

Getting Ready

Brad and Natalie both got ready at The Kingsbridge Centre – but in separate rooms, on separate floors, as they didn’t want to see each other before the ceremony. This allowed me to do some photos of Brad getting ready as well!

As I mentioned in the sneak peek post, Brad and Natalie have an adorable little girl named Mila. She did visit her dad for some photos with him before the ceremony, but most of the time she stayed with the girls.

The Ceremony

The wedding ceremony was held at King’s Riding Golf Club, in King City, Ontario. The ceremony was held outdoors, in front of the main building at King’s Riding – it was a gorgeous view, on a gorgeous day! The ring bearer and flower girl, William and Kate, respectively, were too cute walking up the aisle together!

The Wedding Party

The lovely wedding party consisted of 4 bridesmaids, 2 flower girls (counting baby Mila!), 4 groomsmen, and a ring bearer.
If you recognize, Sarah, the maid of honour and Natalie’s sister, was also a bridesmaid at Amanda & Kenny’s wedding! It was great seeing her again (and Amanda and Kenny too!)!

Natalie & Brad’s Sneak Peeks

Natalie and Brad booked me to be their King’s Riding wedding photographer about two years ago, and finally, they are married!

You may be wondering what the sparkly gold stuff is in the ring shot below. Well, it’s actually the inside of the envelope that Natalie and Brad’s wedding invitations were sent out in! I like to use as many wedding-related “props” as possible for authenticity, so when I saw the sparkliness inside the invitation envelopes, I knew exactly what I wanted to use it for!

I am always just a little bit extra nervous when there is a baby involved with a wedding. The reason is, just like the weather, you can never predict what the baby’s mood will be like on the wedding day. Some babies get very overwhelmed with everything that’s going on, and are upset most of the day. Some babies are very serious, observing everything going on, but won’t crack a smile. (*cough* Holly *cough*) Little Mila, at 10-months old, made me work for those smiles, but with the help of her stuffed dog Max, I was victorious in capturing some uber-adorable happy faces!
King City wedding photos by King's Riding wedding photographer www.jnphotography.ca @filemanager

Natalie and Brad had a fantastic wedding party, of course! I enjoyed seeing Sarah again, who was also a bridesmaid at Amanda & Kenny’s wedding.

My husband sometimes makes random comments as he walks by and I’m working on photos. In the case of the big wedding party photo below, he offhandedly said “Did they run out of flowers, and that bridesmaid had to carry a baby around instead?” Yes. Yes that is what happened. haha. (Sidenote: Did you hear about that wedding where the girls held rescue puppies instead of bouquets? LOVE!)
King City wedding photos by King's Riding wedding photographer www.jnphotography.ca @filemanager

To Natalie and Brad, congrats on your marriage! I loved being there to document yours (and Mila’s) special day! Through the chaos of everything that was going on, we got some fantastic photos!
