Newmarket Waterstone Wedding Photos

Sarah & Gavin

Today I get to share with you more photos from Sarah and Gavin’s Newmarket Waterstone wedding!

How They Met

Sarah and Gavin met through a mutual friend. They went on their first date to the movies, and 4 years later, they were engaged!

The Proposal

Sarah and Gavin have a unique proposal story, one I haven’t heard before! When Sarah met Gavin’s grandma for the first time, Gavin’s grandma feel in love with her. She pulled Sarah aside and told her to put a ring on her own finger while Gavin was asleep, then when he woke up in the morning, she should just act as if Gavin had popped the question the night before. haha, sneaky grandma! Sarah didn’t do that, but a few years later, after Sarah fell asleep, Gavin put her Gran’s engagement ring on her finger! When Sarah woke up the next morning, she noticed the ring on her finger! She woke Gavin up and she asked him about it, and Gavin came over to her and dropped to one knee and asked her to marry him!

The Wedding

You may ask be wondering “Is Gavin’s wedding ring BLUE?!” Yes. Yes it is – and I wondered the same thing when they gave me the rings to photograph and Gavin’s ring was blue, and made of rubber. But there is a good reason for it! Gavin is a mechanic for the military, and he wouldn’t have been allowed to wear a real ring while working, so they found this alternative! It still symbolizes the same thing plus, fun fact, it’s so much easier to pose rings when the groom’s ring is made of rubber! The rings don’t slip around as much.

In the 8 years that I’ve been shooting weddings, I’ve only had one incident of photographing the same wedding dress. There must be a billion different styles of wedding dresses out there, so coming across one you’ve photographed before is pretty rare. Well it just so happens, that Sarah chose the same dress AND the same venue as my 2015 bride, Jenny! Sarah’s dress had pink undertones (Jenny’s was gold) and a few minor differences (Sarah had her dress altered to have a corset in the back rather than a zipper), but I couldn’t believe my luck – same dress and same venue! I knew then and there that Sarah and Gavin’s wedding was going to be awesome, because that’s such an incredibly rare thing to have happen! It had to be a sign of good luck (at least, I thought so!)

The Bride & Groom

Sarah and Gavin did a First Look, as well as all their bride & groom portraits, before the ceremony. This way they could maximize their time with their guests. We had a gorgeous sunny day with blue skies working with us, so it was a great day for outdoor photos, especially at Waterstone Estate & Farms!

The Ceremony

The ceremony was held in the outdoor gazebo, which is always lovely! Their wedding ceremony was at 10:30am, as they were having a lovely mid-day brunch reception!

The Reception

The reception was a unique breakfast/brunch buffet and it was soooo good. Seriously, more couples need to do this. Who doesn’t love breakfast food?! Plus it was so cozy and quaint somehow!

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.

Stephanie and Marc were married on a perfect blue-sky day at The Manor in Kettleby.

Their wedding party consisted of three bridesmaids and three groomsmen – they were such a fun group!

At a lot of weddings, I will tell my couples to walk somewhere and walk back, and just chat with each other. In case anyone’s interested, this is what your wife will look like when you tell her that you didn’t do the dishes. 😉

Congrats Stephanie and Marc!! I loved being a part of your awesome wedding day!
