Georgina Wedding Photographer | Georgina ROC Chalet Wedding Photos


Golden Dinosaurs | The Simpsons


Emily & Bill

“Dinosaurs are the best, so just calm down.”

Emily and Bill’s Georgina ROC Chalet wedding had very elegant decor with a “light sprinkling” of golden dinosaurs (yes, golden dinosaurs), and was accented with elements from The Simpsons. Most of the guests were wondering “What’s up with the golden dinosaurs?” and they all had to wait for the bride and groom’s speech to find out the answer – the answer was the quote above 😉

How They Met

Originally, Emily and Bill met on the internet. When they met in-person, they actually met outside a subway station in Toronto (because Emily was running late. ha). On their first date, they went to a pub, and they talked for hours. Bill got tipsy and was a super gentleman and insisted on escorting Emily home on the subway, bus, then subway, then to her car. Then, Emily drove him home because she was sober. They dated for 18 months before getting engaged!

The Proposal

Bill woke Emily up before my night-shift with coffee and a ring, and asked “So… you wanna get hitched?” Apparently this was a great way to wake up, because Emily said yes!

The Wedding


As I mentioned earlier, there were elements of The Simpsons TV show here and there. (The golden dinosaurs I’ll get into more when I get to the Reception part of the blog.) One of those was Bill’s cufflinks – which are replicas of the cufflinks from the Simpsons episode of Lisa’s wedding!

The Newlyweds!


Emily and Bill did a First Look (most people will tap the groom on the shoulder or poke them or something, Emily went with the always popular, ass-grab.), and all their bride & groom photos before the ceremony, so they could mingle with guests right after the ceremony.

The Ceremony


The ceremony was held indoors, because despite it being September, it was crazy hot outside! (It was something like 32*C)

Someone (not Emily), added to the golden dinosaur cake toppers, by dressing them with a tiny bouquet, and floral bow-tie!

The first dance was done in the same area as the ceremony, but the arch was moved away.

Congrats Emily & Bill!! I never thought about it until afterwards, but I left before you guys brought out the pinatas! D’oh!

Newmarket Waterstone Wedding Photos


Newmarket Wedding Photographer | Waterstone Estate & Farms


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!

Newmarket Wedding Photographer | Newmarket Wedding Photos | Madsen’s Greenhouse


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 Wedding

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 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!

Kettleby Wedding Photographer | The Manor Wedding Photos


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.
