Sarah & Graeme

How They Met

Sarah and Graeme met for the first time when they attended a youth group together. Graeme first asked Sarah out on a date when they were 9 years old, and she said no. Sarah thought that he was really awkward, but cute, and she was disappointed any time he didn’t show up to their youth group. Graeme thought Sarah was cute (remember, they were only 9 years old at the time!). Graeme was very shy, but Sarah made the effort to talk to him and made sure that he felt like a valuable member of their group. Week after week, the more Graeme got to know Sarah, the more he knew that he wanted to be more than just friends with her.

They remained friends over the years, and when they both went off to university they stayed in touch. Graeme asked Sarah out a few more times throughout the years, but Sarah still kept saying no. After Sarah and Graeme both graduated from university, Sarah was about to start a college program, and Graeme was about to be posted to Trenton (he’s in the military), Graeme asked Sarah out again, and this time Sarah said YES!

Their first date was actually at a wedding! Graeme’s sister’s wedding to be exact. With Graeme being in the military, he didn’t get much time off, and he wasn’t in town very often either, so they took advantage of the weekend where they were both in the same place. Sarah and Graeme’s families had known each other for awhile (makes sense, since Sarah and Graeme basically grew up together!), so Sarah’s parents were invited to the wedding as well. So, on Sarah and Graeme’s very first official date, she got to meet Graeme’s entire extended family, and technically both of their parents went on their first date with them. Haha!

The Proposal

A year-and-a-half after they started dating, it was Christmas Eve and they were at Graeme’s grandparents’ house where his family holds a big Christmas dinner before getting ready to head to church. After dinner (but before they left for the church service), Graeme pulled Sarah downstairs where he privately proposed.

The Wedding

Sarah and Graeme had their wedding at the Trillium Trails Banquet & Conference Centre, in Oshawa, on a beautiful autumn day. They got ready at the venue, Graeme in the basement and Sarah upstairs in the bridal suite, which was super convenient for me to go back and forth between them and take photos!

Not only is Graeme in the military (Air Force, if I’m remembering correctly), but all his groomsmen are too! I was very interested to see how half of an entire wedding party, being in the military, would go. I always assumed military men were very rigid and serious…. then I met Tom. After photographing the guys getting ready, I went upstairs to the bridal suite and said “So…. I met Tom” and Sarah immediately said “Oh, I’m sorry about that.” hahaha. I knew already it was going to be an amazing, and super-fun day.

I think the most interesting thing about having all the men in the wedding party being in the military, is that when they got dressed, they folded their clothes very neatly, and put them in very neat, precise piles. For anyone who has never been in a room with multiple men getting ready to attend a wedding, there is usually clothes everywhere, maybe a belt or two slung over a chair, alcohol, wallets, sometimes flasks, spare change, covering most surfaces, and at least one of them is writing their speech for the reception at the last-minute. You get the picture – military men? Nope, super organized, super neat – and yet somehow still fun. I credit Tom with getting a few genuine smiles out of Graeme for his first few portraits when he was still a little nervous.

Lots of people know about the First Look that some couples do these days, where the groom sees the bride for the first time. Well, I also like doing what I call “Dad’s First Look” – a dad seeing his little girl all dressed up as a bride for the first time.

Right after Sarah’s dad got his “first look” at his gorgeous daughter, it was Graeme’s turn, to see his bride.

After the first look(s), we went right into the Bride & Groom Portrait part of the day. This works out well because the couple can mingle with their guests during most of the cocktail hour, rather than taking photos after the ceremony! Not to mention the bride’s hair and makeup is still freshly done.

Anyone who knows me, or who has followed my work for awhile, knows how much I love veils!

It wasn’t actually very cold, but Sarah really loved this photo idea with the blanket wrapped around them, and I have to say I love how it turned out!

I told Sarah to bring Graeme’s nametag off his uniform, a little extra sentimental touch that adds to the day – not to mention Sarah’s new last name!

Ceremony time! Sarah and Graeme’s ceremony was outdoors, and they lucked into a gorgeous day! You can’t even imagine how happy and excited I was when the breeze kept gently blowing Sarah’s veil around during the ceremony. (Again I say, veils are awesome!)

The reception area at Trillium Trails is fantastic, and Sarah and Graeme did their first dance under a shower of bubbles (coming from a bubble-maker up on the balcony – because Mike from Xtreme Sound is awesome!). The windows in the room overlooked the grounds, and it was just a great area to celebrate a brand new marriage!

Newmarket Wedding Photographer | Holland Marsh Winery


Alexis & Todd

Another fantastic Holland Marsh Winery wedding went down this past fall, when Alexis and Todd got married!

How They Met

Alexis and Todd originally met online, then they went on their first date to the Fairview Mall in Toronto, just walking around and talking, and then they went to a restaurant for dinner.

The Proposal

After three years of dating, Todd proposed late one night in their living room.

The Wedding

I remember the day Alexis emailed me a photo from her cell phone, asking me what I thought of these flowers, and if I thought they would photograph well. They are actually fake flowers, and she was sending me the photo from a craft store. As you can see below, they photographed extremely well! Little Carter enjoyed carrying them around before the ceremony for a little bit too.

Despite it being early November, the fall theme was absolutely perfect! (Who doesn’t love the colours of fall?!)

Alexis and Todd did a First Look, and then did all their photos before the ceremony. We lucked into some awesome golden autumn light!

If I’m remembering correctly, Todd’s mother crocheted the orange shawl for Alexis. What a wonderful job she did too!

The ceremony was indoors, and it was full of fun and laughter. Alexis got a bit of the giggles at one point – but that’s Todd and Alexis. Always joking around and laughing!

Sarah & Graeme’s Sneak Peeks

Sarah and Graeme got married in early November, so we fully expected it to be colddddd, but they lucked into some beautiful fall weather! It was a nice 15*C for their Trillium Trails wedding in Oshawa! It was funny, because two days before the wedding the weather reports were saying it was going to be 13*C, and the girls were joking “just 2 more degrees!” – well they got their wish!

The photo below on the left was right after their First Look, and I just love how Sarah’s face has just pure joy and happiness written all over it!

Anyone who’s been following my work for even a short while, knows that I loves me some long veils! 😉

Graeme has been in the military for 7 years (I found this out from Table #7! 😉 ), so we used one of his name tags in a few shots. (Actually, all the groomsmen are in the military also, and they were all amazing, and hilarious!).

Congrats Sarah and Graeme!! It was an honour to be a part of your wedding! It was a truly wonderful day!

Newmarket Wedding Photographer | Holland Marsh Wineries


Alexis & Todd’s Wedding Sneak Peeks

Alexis and Todd had an indoor ceremony at their Holland Marsh Wineries wedding! It was cool, but great weather, especially for November!

Alexis was a little worried about how her bouquet would photograph, but I think it absolutely perfect, especially with the fall-theme!

Todd’s mother made the gorgeous orange wrap for Alexis, and it matched the wedding colours perfectly!

Tatiana and Russell had a small civil ceremony at the Civic Centre in East Gwillimbury (just north of Newmarket). There is quite a height difference between Tatiana, who is 5’4″, and Russell who is 6’3″ (? I can’t remember exactly, over 6 feet for sure!) – so there was some creative posing involved for the photos. I think they all came out fabulously considering it was super cold and rainy (ha – the things we do to get good photos!).

Tatiana & Russell, I wish you guys all the best!

Tatiana wanted a “darker” kind of wedding photo, so this was the result!
