Fantasy Farm Wedding Photographer | Toronto Wedding Photographer


Emily & Mandira’s Sneak Peeks

I was honoured to be Emily and Mandira’s Fantasy Farm wedding photographer! The weather was super hot, and it was threatening to rain and thunderstorm, but none of that put a damper on their fantastic wedding day!

Emily and Mandira had an all-female wedding party. Emily had her three daughters standing with her, and Mandira had her two cousins standing with her. Gotta love an all-female, all-family wedding party!

For anyone who doesn’t know, Fantasy Farm isn’t a farm at all – but it is a quaint and cozy little event center in Toronto, with tons of foliage all around. Thankfully the rain held off so we could do most of the photos outdoors!

Congrats Emily & Mandira!

Frances & Beth

How They Met

Frances and Beth met through a mutual friend who lives in Toronto. They had each heard of the other, and had seen each other at a couple of events, but hadn’t really had a chance to talk for over a year.

When they finally did start talking, there was an immediate attraction for both of them – They connected on many levels right away!

For their first date, they met up at a barbecue. Things took off from there, and four years later came…

The Proposal

Beth, Frances, her two daughters Jasmine and Melanie, and their dog Skipper, were on a five-day canoe trip in Algonquin Park. They were watching a beautiful sunset from their campsite, when Frances turned and asked Beth to marry her in front of Jasmine and Melanie. Beth said yes of course, and the four of them hugged, cried, and laughed. Jasmine and Melanie starting planning for the wedding at that very moment!

When I was photographing the rings, I couldn’t help but notice that the four rings elegantly symbolized their new family. I pictured the two engagement rings as Beth and Frances, and the wedding rings as Jasmine and Melanie. (I don’t normally make up little “ring families” but I liked the symbolism in this case.)

The Wedding

Getting Ready

Beth and Frances both got ready at their home. They got dressed in separate rooms, and then had a First Look in their dining room before heading over to the Holland Marsh Wineries.

The Ceremony

The ceremony was held outdoors, with DIY wooden signs scattered around the venue. It was a gorgeous sunny summer day, and a great day to get married!

I LOVE the group photo above! Right after the ceremony, the brides walked back down the aisle, followed by the five bridesmaids, and they all surrounded the brides and hugged and cheered. The photo you see above is a pure candid shot of them post-hug right after the ceremony!

The Wedding Party

The fantastic wedding party consisted of Frances’ two daughters and Beth’s three nieces. All five of them acted like sisters though, I noticed, and they really made the day all the more special for Frances and Beth.

The Newlyweds!

Some photos of the gorgeous brides, of course!

The Reception

The only thing I can think of to say about the reception was that it was full of love, laughter and fun!

Frances & Beth’s Sneak Peeks

I had the pleasure of photographing Frances and Beth’s Holland Marsh Winery wedding last weekend – and it was so much fun! They lucked into a beautiful, sunny day – even though the week before the weather forecast was predicting thunderstorms!

Frances and Beth are both so kind and wonderful, I just loved being able to document their special day for them!

They had an all-female wedding party (girl power, woooo!), which included Frances’ daughters, and Beth’s nieces. All five of them (and their spouses!) helped out with everything, and helped create the perfect day for Frances and Beth.

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!

The Manor Wedding Photos | Kettleby


Paula & Leanne’s Sneak Peeks

Today I get to share some of The Manor wedding photos, from Paula and Leanne’s perfect fall wedding day! Paula and Leanne lucked into an absolutely perfect autumn day to have their wedding at The Manor in Kettleby! It was a bit chilly, but beautiful! And who doesn’t love the fall colours? To go with the season, Paula and Leanne chose burnt orange as their wedding colour!

When I arrived, both brides were very excited, a little bit nervous, and definitely thinking about each other. They wondered how the other one was doing, if they were happy/excited, etc etc. The two photos below are of the brides during the “getting ready” part of the day, before they saw each other at their indoor ceremony.

At the reception, Leanne’s brother was the MC. One of the things he said (and I’m paraphrasing because I can’t remember exactly) was “There are a lot of words to describe Paula and Leanne, but I think the best one is HAPPY.” Truer words were never spoken! The brides were just happy, carefree and full of joy, all day! I love the photo below on the right, it was a candid shot but you can just feel the happiness – just look at the smile on Leanne’s face! (And Leanne made that gorgeous brooch bouquet herself!)

I remember when I took the photo on the left so vividly. Leanne was walking down this walkway, and Paula was standing next to me. Leanne’s dress was flared out behind her and it just about took Paula’s breath away. She said to me “Wow. She is so beautiful.”, and when I looked over at Paula, she just seemed entranced by Leanne’s beauty. It was a really great moment.

Then I told Paula “Hey, go join her over there.”…

Did I mention the incredible fall colours? The best ones were right out front, and right by the parking lot, and I don’t happen to be a fan of parked cars in the backgrounds of my photos – but we made due 😉

Congrats Paula & Leanne! It was an absolute pleasure documenting your wedding day! You are both so warm and welcoming (and have the best sense of humours!), and really made me feel like I was hanging out with some friends one one of the most important and memorable days of their lives. By the way, you two are now officially my favourite “cake cutting and feeding it to each other” couple of all time. See photos below 😉
