Tiffany & Jeff were married on May 21, 2016 at a Whistling Gardens wedding in Wilsonville Ontario. It was an amazing day of celebration that seemed to just ‘fit’ this awesome couple that met a couple of years ago online. Yes, another online romance! It’s amazing how many stories I’ve been hearing lately about couples that came to meet through the world wide web! And when you see two people so perfect for each other come together it certainly makes you a true believer of the process :).

There is so much to love about Jeff & Tiffany. The couple with the huge hearts, loving hugs, and a common adoration for Raelynn, the princess that lights up the room with a joy for life. The entire wedding process from engagement to vows was one that was filled with love, but also some pretty tough challenges for Jeff & Tiffany. I know there were many hard moments in this day for the two, but they were really able to make it a beautiful celebration as well.

This wedding day was a day that was unlike any other wedding I have ever photographed. Jeff & Tiffany had a garden party wedding at Whistling Gardens . Then they followed this beautiful afternoon with a giant afterparty back at their home in Port Dover. This was an event filled with joy, a great deal of emotion and a laid-back atmosphere that helped to facilitate sharing & building memories for the future, while reminiscing of the greatest memories of the past. My favourite memory of this day by far  is listening to Jeff share his vows with Tiffany, and then that second surprise vow to his ‘now-daughter’ Raelynn. The love that these two already have for each other is easily apparent, and I don’t think there was a dry eye on the grounds at Whistling Gardens when the vows were exchanged.

Thank you so very much Tiffany & Jeff for this gift of being able to share in your lives. You are both beautiful people, but it’s your hearts that have really captivated me. I’m in awe of the kid, loving, and honest relationship you have with each other. I’m so very happy of the two of you!

I had the pleasure of meeting Korri, Jamie & Carson this past week to take some maternity photos at Backus Mill Conservation Area. Carson is so very enthusiastic about meeting his new baby brother, or baby sister?! We just don’t know for sure yet, but it will only be a few more weeks now until everyone will be swooning over the new addition to the Coats Family! Can’t wait to hear the news!

We were all in the week prior to this wedding watching the forecast closely. All looked promising up until Wednesday, and then Thursday before the wedding the forecast changed and we were suddenly expecting some showers. Although we thought we would dodge the showers, we ended up being wrong:(…  and mid-day they skies started to open up a bit. Emily & Richard, along with they entire wedding were simply the BEST with going with the flow, alternating between several locations, taking a few breaks to let the showers pass, and getting their suits and dresses just a wee bit wet. We had such a great day hanging with this crowd that was up for all of my goofy ideas and just the best of times.

Emily & Richard were married at the Knox Presbyterian Church here in Port Dover. It was nostalgic for me to take a trip back to the very same church that I was married in almost 13 years ago (I was married young by the way lol!). After the ceremony we made our way around Port Dover to visit some of my favourite locations in the area. The reception was back at the Port Dover Community Centre.

Emily & Richard, thank you, thank you, thank you for such a fabulous, fun and memorable day. We loved meeting your family and friends and the love that you can see between all of you is so awesome! Here is a peek at your photos. Enjoy them and we’ll be in touch soon!

Shalane & Gideon were married this past Friday at the Immanuel Christian Reformed Church in Hamilton. It was a sweet ceremony witnessed by those closest to them in which they all celebrated the moment that the two were announced husband and wife.

After meeting in high school,  Shalane & Gideon quickly found themselves enjoying the simple activities of bowling, traversing corn mazes and playing guitar hero. It wasn’t long before Gideon  knew that Shalane was ‘the one’ and asked her to marry him in the east location of their first date.

And here we are now on their wedding day. Shane & Gideon glowed with happiness. When we wrapped up their photos and headed out for the evening, Shalane and Gideon were just getting into their evening of wedding celebrations at the Ancaster Old Mill.

We had an amazing day with you both Shalane & Gideon. Thanks so much for sharing this special day with us

It was just about 3 years ago now… that special day when I first met Matthew & Bianca. It was at The Doctor’s House in Kleinburg the day I photographed Bianca’s brother, Brandon, and his beautiful wife, Michelle’s wedding. To get an email from Bianca about photographing her wedding was something of pure blessing for me. From the moment I met this girl and her handsome man that simply adored her, I knew there was something special about them. Their smiles are true, their love is uniquely theirs, their kindness is unmatched. It is a pure honour that I am going to witness the day that they become husband and wife at Whistlebear Golf Club this coming September. Whistle bear is definitely one of my favourite wedding venues, and to share in Bianca & Matthew’s special day there… well, I’m feeling pretty blessed!

Last Thursday evening we met up in Ancaster to take Bianca & Matthew’s Tiffany Falls engagement photos. The evening was awesome. These two are simply magic together. So excited for September!
