Chantal & Jacob have the sweet story of the girl/boy next door :). Jacob bought the house next to Chantal’s parents a few years back and in time would meet Sherry & Rob’s daughter, a stunning brunette with a smile that could light any room. Chantal would also find it difficult not to notice the guy next store… the one with the charming smile and the generous heart. It’s truly a story of perfect timing and perfect love.

Chantal & Jake had a perfectly beautiful December day for their wedding…. not too chilly and just a little bit of sunshine. We met Jake at the Pillar & Post in Niagara on the Lake and the ease and calm in the air was awesome. Jake and the gentlemen effortlessly slipped on their ties and jackets and after a few photos they made their way to St. Vincent de Paul Roman Catholic Church in Niagara on the Lake to greet the wedding guests upon arrival. Chantal and Amber & Kelsey were just  simply chillin’ out when we arrived at their suite. The girls were sitting in their comfy, silky pants and sweaters nestled up on a sofa sharing stories.  We quickly got them moving though, and in what seemed like only moments, Chantal was in her dress and ready to walk down the aisle.

The day unfolded beautifully and the Pillar and Post venue was decorated so lovely for Christmas. It seemed that every corner made for a perfect photo. One of my favourite elements to Chantal & Jacob’s day was that they took a moment right after the ceremony for just the two of them. They jumped in the limo and went for a quick drive and then met me for a few photos of (again) just the two of them. I think that remembering to take a few minutes on this busy day for yourselves is so important. There is so much excitement, and people pulling you in many directions… it’s great to take some time and make a memory for yourselves, and to remember what the day is truly about – your love for each other and the awesome commitment you just made to one another.

Chantal & Jacob, Thank you!! I am SO very grateful for being able to share in this day. Your love and hearts for each other is so genuinely honest and true, and it’s the kind of love I hope my kids will find one day… true, unending, selfless, generous, thoughtful and adoring. I wish you only the very, very best in the years ahead.

It was a sweet November day this past Saturday when we were blessed to spend time with the lovely Leigh Ann & Kyle at Knollwood Golf Club. There happened to be a light dusting on snow on the ground from the morning flurries, and the sun peeked through the clouds and tall trees around the golf course when we arrived. Although the temperatures were cool, they were definitely mild for this time of year and we welcomed the spurts of sunshine as they came.

Leigh Ann & Kyle were both able to get themselves ready at the Inn on the Knollwood Golf Club property without being seen by the each other. The Inn having dual staircases and multiple floors with plenty of room for guests to roam around made it super easy for the two to still have their separate quarters. After a beautiful ceremony at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Hamilton we raced against the fading daylight to get a few outdoor photos before the sun set. We definitely succeeded on getting some beautiful evening shots as well.

Leigh Ann & Kyle’s guests eagerly awaited their arrival at the Golf Club for the reception. The evening was enchanting, full of fun and many funny memories. We had such a great time sharing in this gorgeous Fall/Winter wedding with such a beautiful couple. Thank you so much Leigh Ann & Kyle for this opportunity to work with you both on your big day! Thank you for baring the cool temperatures int eh evening and for just being up for anything! We had a blast with you :). Enjoy this peek and we’ll be in touch soon!

Sarah & Devin shared a fantastic wedding day in Delhi & Tillsonburg just over a week ago. Despite some unfavourable weather conditions, Sarah & Devin were up for anything and were game for staying outside for some photos even though I spotted lots of goosebumps. We found a few key areas around Delhi where we were able to keep somewhat dry, but I don’t think anyone was staying overly warm :(.  I’m so thankful that the gang from the wedding party were so cooperative with jumping in and out of their little yellow bus at all my multiple requests. With this we were able to still accomplish a great variety of photos for Sarah & Devin.

Sarah & Devin were married at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs in Delhi Ontario and their wedding reception followed later that evening at the Tillsonburg Community Centre. I was thrilled to run into so many familiar faces throughout the day! This is always so sweet to spend time with past clients at new weddings. I love my job so much!

Sarah & Devin, thanks you so much for allowing me to share in your wedding day. We had a great day with you both and are so grateful that you were so seas going and that you (Sarah) didn’t mind getting your dress a little wet to make sure we got some great photos! Congratulations guys and I hope you enjoy this preview of your images. Thanks for your patience in waiting for this post too!

I’m a bit behind in my blogging, so first off let me apologize to everyone that has been waiting to see some preview pics of Danielle & Albert’s wedding about a week ago! Hopefully the photos are worth the wait!

Danielle & Albert were married this November in Norwich at the Netherlands Reformed Congregation. Meeting Danielle prior to the ceremony at her parents home led us to a light and fun-filled environment. The house was alive with laughter and excitement and the feeling of anticipation was contagious! Shannon and I were in love with this day from those first few moments we arrived at the Stubbe’s door. They welcomed us with the biggest smiles and we were immediately at home. After some photos at this lovely home, we met Albert at the church where he eagerly awaited the arrival of his bride to be. I have to make a special mention to the gorgeous little flower girl and ring-bearer (Kaleen & Andre… my spelling may be off?). These were seriously two of the most patient and well-behaved children I have ever photographed. I was almost tempted to bring them home with me, but figured that might not fair so well with their parents LOL!

After the ceremony was completed, Danielle and Albert treated their family to a delicious lunch at Otter Creek Golf Club where we would eventually roll into some photos of these large and playful families and then the wedding party. Although the day was cool, we had such a great location for our photos that it seemed to hide us from the breezes and we were even treated with just a few rays of sunshine here and there. I am so very grateful for this amazing wedding party and their ability to stay outside for a much longer period of time than I expected they would! These guys are troopers (even the kiddies) and seemed to be laughing their heads off all day long:)

Danielle & Albert… what an amazing treat it was to share in your day. The two of you are inspiring. You’re so full of love for everyone around you, have the most positive outlooks, are kind, thoughtful and incredibly welcoming. I am so thankful to have met you both and to have played a small part in your story :). Congratulations!

  • Ashley - These pictures are awesome Andrea!! You captured everything perfectly! :)

  • Corrie - Beautiful pictures Andrea. Once again you’ve captured a couples special moments on their special day!!!!

Jaime & Mark’s wedding was a day filled with celebration, love, fun, laughter, friendship, family and all things good. I am so thrilled to have been able to share in this lovely day. Jamie and Mark became engaged on a trip to Disney over the New Year. While the fireworks flew in the sky, Mark got down on one knee and shocked Jaime with a marriage proposal. I love that they decided to go back for their honeymoon!

Jaime & Mark were married at a gorgeous ceremony at the Grand Olympia in Stoney Creek. After a few photos (and a little strong-arming by me to lure the wedding party outside into the freezing cold), Jaime & Mark were introduced into a great room filled with all their ‘framily’… a dance between the new couple and again, some fireworks for their grand entrance. What a fun-filled night!

Thank you Jaime & Mark for sharing this special day with us. We had so much fun with you. Hope you’re having an amazing honeymoon and we’ll be in touch soon:)
