Holland Marsh Wineries Wedding Photos

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.

Some photos of the gorgeous brides, of course!

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.

Jennie & Lucas

How They Met

Jennie and Lucas originally met online, but they had their first date at the Hungry Brew Hops in Newmarket (spoiler alert: That’s also where they had their wedding reception!) When they met in-person, they both thought the other one looked better in-person than in their online photos (that’s always a good thing!). Things took off from there, and 2.5 years later they were engaged!

The Proposal

It was a normal summer evening in June, and Jennie and Lucas were hanging out on their back patio, reminiscing about when they first met, and Lucas just randomly decided to propose!

The Wedding

The Ceremony

Jennie and Lucas got married at Madsen’s Greenhouse in Newmarket. They had their ceremony outdoors, on a gorgeous day in June, surrounded by their closest family and friends. The ceremony was officiated by Jennie’s aunt, and the bride and groom wrote their own — very amusing — vows.

The Newlyweds!

We did all the bride and groom’s photos on the gorgeous grounds of Madsen’s Greenhouse (of course!), and we got the photos done so quickly we were actually a whole hour ahead of schedule!

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!
