Gorgeous Grand Luxe Wedding

Congratulations Violet and Johnny! This has got to be one of the most elaborate and gorgeous weddings of the year. Not only is our bride stunning with one blue eye and one brown, our groom is handsome as can be. This doubly photogenic couple are also the sweetest and kindest to work with. Completely trusting and so easy going – it was a pleasure to be part of their day. The reception was a non stop party complete with fire show, customized food truck, and stellar decor.
They have the most fabulous engagement story: They got engaged at a beautiful restaurant in Santorini called the Red Bicycle. They enjoyed each other’s company so much that by the end of it, they were the only patrons left. They were swaying to the music, enjoying the beautiful Santorini scenery, enjoying a delicious bottle of white wine when Johnny asked if Violet wanted to dance. She jumped at the chance and at the perfect moment he told her how much he loved her and got on his knee and asked her to marry him, of course she said “YES”!!!!

A Stunning Ancaster Mill Wedding

Congratulations Liz and John who were married on Aug 12, 2017 at the Ancaster Mill near Hamilton. It was the first time we shot at the Barracks Inn just up the street from the Mill and WOW what a fabulous little hotel. It had everything we needed plus an AMAZING bridal suite! As photographers, we are always looking for interesting light and textures – and this hotel had it all, with beautiful exposed stone, green space, big windows and a huge covered balcony. We photographed both the bride and groom getting ready at the hotel before heading to the Mill for the ceremony. The bride had a fabulous Vera Wang wedding dress and amazing flats from Marshall’s 🙂 We have mentioned many times that The Ancaster Mill is one of our fave venues – they take such amazing care of their grounds and the food is divine. We used every inch of the bridge and waterfall before heading inside for one amazing party. Check out the fabulous cake by Sweet Philosophy. It didn’t hurt that there were quite a few Star Wars references for us fellow nerds 🙂
