Holland Marsh Wineries Wedding Photographer | Newmarket Wedding Photographer


Jessica & Cameron’s Sneak Peeks

Now that Jessica and Cameron are back from their fabulous honeymoon in the Dominican Republic, I can share some sneak peek photos from their Holland Marsh Wineries wedding! They lucked out for sure, as just a few days after their wedding was when all this snow started falling!

They had an indoor ceremony (and a good decision that was, because it was coldddd outside!), which was lovely, and officiated by Jessica’s aunt.

After the ceremony, we did brave the cold and venture outside for a little bit to do some outdoor wedding photos, while the ceremony area indoors was converted to the reception room. (Moving chairs and tables.) Jess and Cam kindly did not make their guests join them outdoors – they enjoyed the warmth inside on the upper level while the room was being converted.

Vaughan Wedding Photographer | The Doctor’s House | Hazelton Manor


Jennifer & Scott

In my last blog post, I posted photos from Jennifer and Scott’s maternity session. Now it’s time to have a look at their Vaughan wedding!

How They Met

Jen and Scott first met at a local bar in Newmarket. Scott saw Jen, and right away knew that he had to talk to her. Jen was sending a text message, and Scott peeked over her shoulder and said “you text message a lot.” Jen’s first thought was “Who is this creeper watching me?”. She looked up at her friend, who gave her the go-ahead to turnaround (because Scott didn’t look like a weirdo, haha). When Jen turned around, she thought to herself that “this guy is pretty darn cute!”

They went on their first date to dinner and a movie. They had dinner at Shoeless Joe’s, and then they went and saw the movie Hostel. The proposal came 7 years later!

The Proposal

Scott proposed on the beach in Cuba (on Jen’s birthday!)

The Wedding

I started photographing at the hotel in Vaughan where both Scott and Jen were getting ready. They had separate rooms just down the hall from each other (or was it across the hall?), so it was easy for me to go back and forth! As I usually do, I started off by photographing all the bridal details.

The boys looked very handsome of course – not just Scott, but their 7-month-old son Liam as well! (Look at his cute little bow-tie!!!)

I think the photos speak for themselves, so I don’t really have to say it (but I will anyway), Jen was an absolutely stunning bride!

The ceremony was held in the adorable little white chapel at The Doctor’s House in Kleinburg.

We went to a nearby park, which I scouted out the week before. It was gorgeous, with lots of photo spots – a great place for wedding photos!

Before I move on to reception photos, I have to include photos of the awesome wedding party! You can’t even tell that two of the bridesmaids were pregnant, and one just had a baby, can you? 😉

The reception was held at Hazelton Manor, in Vaughan. A great reception venue, with lots of space!

MOOSE! Run Wedding Party, Runnnnnnnnnn!

So, everyone has seen the photo circulating the internet of the T-Rex chasing the wedding party. And of course everyone is now doing “their version” of it. WELL, I hopped right on that bandwagon too! haha.

Kate’s family is extremely outdoorsy and rustic, and very into hunting. SO, instead of a dinosaur, Kate thought it would be great if there was a giant moose chasing them. Kate’s brother actually shot a HUGE moose with a bow and arrow, and the GIGANTIC moose head is hanging in their parents’ living room…. along with a deer. ANYWAY. As I like to customize my photos to the likes and style of my clients, I said “No problem, let’s do it!”

The wedding party did an awesome job at being terrified and running (you guys are awesome!), and here is the final result. I couldn’t find any moose photos where the moose was angry and running towards the camera (who would have thought that would be so hard to find!? I mean, really.), but this one does the job pretty well I think!

I actually did some research on a few different kinds of moose, and most of them seem to be able to rest their mouths on top of a human’s head – so this moose is probably a bit bigger than an actual moose would be, but I think it adds authenticity to the terror value of the wedding party’s expressions.

Anyway enough of my chattering away, here’s the photo you opened up this blog post to see!

Kate & Holt’s Rustic Vintage Wedding

Kate and Holt got married this past Saturday, and it was without a doubt, the definition of a “rustic vintage wedding”! There were TONS of beautiful details – Kate thought of everything! And it’s not a surprise really, she’s been planning this wedding since she was 18 years old (before she even met Holt!). It all started with this vintage off-white purse she found. She bought it and decided she was going to use it for her future wedding – and she did!

Originally when I was picking out photos for this blog post, I narrowed it down to 29. YES 29 photos!!! Usually I post somewhere around 3-8 or so teaser images after a wedding, but Kate had so many unique and awesome details, I wanted to post them ALL. But alas, I’ve restrained myself. There will definitely be a future blog post featuring lots more images from Kate & Holt’s beautiful wedding though! Maybe a whole separate blog post just for the decor. (I especially loved the vintage cameras on all the reception tables! Kate also does some photography, so it was totally fitting!)

Kate did a lot of DIY (“do it yourself”) stuff as well. She picked the flowers for her bouquet herself in a field, and then bought some daisies and arranged and bundled it herself. The canvas and twine was PERFECT for the rustic feel of the wedding! Her mother hemmed her dress (perfectly might I add!), and did all the cooking and baking for the reception. Kate went to a lot of thrift shops to find all the decor (apparently all the teacups were the hardest to find – but it was definitely worth it!) She also made her own wedding invitations, and she made smores as wedding favours for her guests!

Some other unique details I really loved were, instead of having a traditional wedding guestbook, guests had to type their names on an antique typewriter. There were real deer antlers around the cake, and so much more! (You’ll have to wait for that “Kate & Holt’s Wedding Details” blog post later!)

NOW, let’s talk about Kate, Holt, and their wedding party!

Kate and Holt had been dating for 2 years (knew each other for 4) before they got married – and during that time Kate was away at school in Australia for an entire year! It must be true that absense makes the heart grow stronger, because Kate and Holt were totally IN LOVE! When the vintage wooden doors that were set-up in the field opened and Kate appeared, both Kate and Holt’s eyes welled up with tears. So did the bridesmaids’ eyes as well, and I’ll admit, I got a little misty. It was so beautiful just how happy they were!!

I of course took many pictures of the whole wedding party, but one photo in particular is especially awesome and hilarious – so much so that it deserves it’s own blog post. So look for that soon! (This special wedding party photo will take a bit of editing, which is why I have to work on it a bit before I post it!) But the bridesmaids and groomsmen were all super fun, and they all got bonus points for not disappearing during photo time! (Haha).

During the ceremony, the pastor did a reading about the ceremonial foot washing. It was really moving – and I’m not an overly religious person, so that says a lot. The foot washing ceremony symbolizes selflessness, and serving your spouse. Kate and Holt performed the foot washing ceremony, and they read the private vows they wrote to each other which only they could hear. (There was a band playing at this time, so they could sort of be “alone” with their words.).

It was really intimate and beautiful. I bet a lot of people wouldn’t think washing feet could be beautiful, but I’m telling you it WAS! When they were speaking to each other and looking into each others eyes, and just emanating with joy… really, there are no words.

The last thing I will say for now is, Kate specifically asked me to edit her photos in a muted-tone style (which is why you may notice that these photos aren’t my usual bright punchy style) – but I think this editing style actually really goes with the whole feel over the wedding perfectly!

Holt’s name written on Kate’s boot, just like in Toy Story! “Kate belongs to Holt”. Adorable.
