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 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!

Corrie & Justin’s Sneak Peeks

Corrie and Justin got married at Newmarket’s very popular Madsen’s Greenhouse, on a beautiful sunny August day.

There was talk that it might rain, but the rain held off so they could have the outdoor ceremony that Corrie was hoping for! Here are a few photos of the happy couple – more to come!

Congrats Corrie & Justin!

Stephanie & Jordan

How They Met

Stephanie and Jordan met at a summer camp-out (pig roast party), through mutual friends. When Jordan saw Stephanie, his first thought was “I wonder if she’s single.” Stephanie’s first thought was “He’s cute, and confident!” They went on their first date in Orangeville – canoeing and dinner! They dated for 3.5 years before Jordan popped the question!

The Proposal

It was late morning, on Christmas 2015. After spending the morning with Jordan’s parents, Steph had asked to stop somewhere to exchange gifts before going to her parents’ place. Jordan chose Ingles Falls (near Owen Sound) on the way to Steph’s parents’, because they had talked about wanting to go there before. Stephanie didn’t expect that a proposal was coming. They found a spot to look at the falls, and Jordan said he wrote a song for Stephanie’s Christmas present. Jordan sang the song, then said nice things, and got down on one knee. There was much happiness and tears of joy!

The Wedding

I don’t normally post invitation pictures (I blurred out Stephanie and Jordan’s last names for privacy), but I was so excited when I saw that their wedding invitation matched the forget-me-nots in my backyard!

Getting Ready

The handsome groom – getting ready, and looking sharp!

How adorable are these “love” shoes?! They are by Ellen DeGeneres! (I didn’t even know Ellen had her own fashion line!)

In between the decorative heart cut-out on Stephanie’s bouquet, was a piece of fabric from her grandmother’s wedding dress. I love it, pretty AND sentimental! And notice the blue thread? I think that covers the “something old”, “something borrowed” AND “something blue”!

Stephanie got ready at her parents’ house, with her family and all her bridesmaids.

Anyone who follows my work knows that I LOVE long veils! I certainly made good use of Stephanie’s veil, using it in many photos 🙂

When I was with Jordan, doing his “getting ready” photos, he mentioned that Stephanie had “the most beautiful blue eyes in the world.” I’m pretty sure the photo below shows off those blue eyes he was referring to!

We did a few outdoor portraits of Stephanie, but it was SUPER windy and really sunny as well. The wind did make for some fun flowing-veil shots though! And really, who doesn’t love a flowing long-veil photo?!

The Ceremony

The wedding ceremony was held outdoors at Madsen’s Greenhouse in Newmarket. I’m a Madsen’s Newmarket wedding photographer quite a bit, because I literally live 6 minutes away from the venue. This works out well for some couples because I can offer non-consecutive coverage at this venue!

Stephanie and Jordan performed a rose ceremony at their wedding. There are a few different ways that rose ceremonies can be done, but essentially the couple exchanges roses – which is actually their first gift to each other as a married couple! A single red rose has always meant “I love you”, so I’d say it bodes well for the occasion of a wedding 😉 However in Stephanie and Jordan’s case, before they exchanged roses, they had each of their family members place a white rose in a vase, and then after they did their exchange, they added their two red roses to the vase as well.

The Wedding Party

The fantastic wedding party! Stephanie had 6 bridesmaids (2 of them were pregnant, and 2 others had just had babies!), and Jordan had 5 groomsmen and 1 groomsmaid! They were all a super fun bunch! The little guy was shy as ever, but Colton made an excellent ring bearer!

The Newlyweds!

I thought Stephanie’s hair was so cute! All going down one side in curls, with flowers in there, reminded me of Princess Rapunzel (not the length, but the style)!

The Reception

The reception area at Madsen’s always looks beautiful, and it was no exception for this wedding! I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that instead of a wedding cake, Steph and Jordan went with a giant cookie! There was a whole cookie table with different types of cookies, but what a great idea! (Plus, chocolate chip cookies are pretty much my most favourite food EVER, so you know I’m not biased at all!)

Stephanie & Jordan’s Sneak Peeks

Stephanie and Jordan got married on a beautiful day in May – just 2 days after a CRAZY downburst hit Newmarket – we lost a 40-foot tree in our front yard! (My adorable children for height comparison – yes it was almost as high as our house – sideways!)

It’s hard to believe that only 2 days later, we had a BEAUTIFUL sunny day for Stephanie and Jordan’s wedding! Here are some sneak peeks from their perfect Newmarket wedding day, at Madsen’s Greenhouse!

Heidi & Matthew’s Sneak Peeks

Heidi and Matthew wanted a beautiful winter wedding at Madsen’s Greenhouse in Newmarket, but what they didn’t count on was the cold! With the wind chill it felt like -34*C! Brrr! However, that didn’t stop them from having a great day, and a great party with their friends! They are returning home from their honeymoon today, so there’s no better day to share some sneak peeks from their Newmarket wedding!

Wedding ceremonies in the greenhouse chapel at Madsen’s are ALWAYS beautiful! The ceremony area is always gorgeous and full of greenery, foliage, and real floral decor! From a photographer’s perspective, you just can’t beat the perfectly diffused light coming in from the greenhouse ceiling! It’s not hot or humid like your typical greenhouses are, but even on the coldest day of the year it was comfortably warm. The rose petal cannons were the perfect touch to end the ceremony, as the newlyweds walked back down the aisle together!

Despite the -34*C weather, we did brave the cold for about 10 minutes to get some snowy outdoor photos. Heidi, Matt, and their wedding party were troopers out in that biting cold! At least we did luck into a gentle snowfall, which was very pretty.

The Madsen’s reception area is beautiful at night, with all the lights and natural floral decor. Heidi, Matt, and their guests, partied it up all night. Heidi & Matt did a great First Dance, complete with a couple twirls and ending with a dip.

Congrats Matt & Heidi!
