Silver Willow Farm Wedding with a side of Caplansky’s Deli – Mychal-Ann & Matt’s Country Wedding

This post is long overdue, but with summer around the corner (….any day now, right?), I’m hoping to inspire some of my country brides and grooms-to-be with Mychal-Ann and Matt’s country wedding held last year at their family farm: Silver Willow Farm (who are also known for their animal rescue work and classic car shows)

This farm was the perfect back drop for their summer country wedding and there was plenty of room to entertain and mingle by the pond, where they were married.  Even the talented folks from Caplansky’s Deli had room to set up their food truck and treat us to some fantastic grub, which was followed by homemade pies from the local Mennonites.  Everything was perfect, from the weather to the food and even the cute blue and yellow accents throughout the day.  Also, it’s not everyday a bride picks up a goat…. a 2014 highlight for sure!

The Waring House, Picton – Prince Edward County Wedding Photographer

Since moving closer to the Prince Edward County area, I’ve had the pleasure of checking out The Waring House both personally and professionally and discovered there are two things they do beautifully:  Burgers and Weddings.

If you’re cruising through Picton and you want good grub, stop by the Barley House just inside the Waring House grounds and grab a spot on the back patio and order their burger (try the County Burger).  You won’t regret it!

Otherwise, if you’re looking for a place near Picton to get married, the Waring House is worth checking out.  I had the pleasure of shooting there last year with Marc Polidoro Photography as a second shooter for Carolyn and Kevin’s wedding.  Here’s a few images I took while working alongside him.

Vanderwater Conservation Area, Belleville Ontario Photographer – Tarina & Justin

Don’t let these “green” engagement photos fool you.  I promise they were shot in December, just after Christmas actually, when it was approximately -10 degrees not including the wind chill.  Trust me, my trigger finger still remembers this day.  It may look warm, but it was pretty chilly for a hike through the Vanderwater Conservation Area just north of Belleville, Ontario.  Thankfully, both Tarina & Justin are real super troopers and went along with my ideas despite the cold.  They’re pretty easy going and fun to work with, plus they have great chemistry together which makes me even more excited for their summer wedding at Occasions by the Bay.

If you’ve stumbled across this blog post because you’re researching Occasions by the Bay, then check out my venue review HERE.

In the meantime, here’s some cute moments of Tarina & Justin hanging out at Vanderwater Conservation Area, looking all cozy and warm like the weather didn’t even matter.

Enjoy!

Cobble Beach Golf Resort, Georgian Bay Waterfront Wedding Photographer – Maria & Scott

It’s true, I’ve been hogging this wedding all to myself.  I’ve been waiting for the right moment to share it because a wedding a Cobble Beach Golf Resort is truly something special.

For Maria and Scott, location, location, location was always a important part of their wedding planning.  Even with their engagement photos they wanted something more rural and away from the Big City of Toronto, so it’s easy to see why they were drawn to Cobble Beach for their wedding.  Luckily, I was asked to capture their beautiful day on the shores of Georgian Bay and I couldn’t be more thankful.  Along with my trusted sidekick and talented second shooter for the day, Joel Mieske Photography, I think it’s fair to say we were totally inspired by the collaboration between Maria, Scott and the staff at Cobble Beach and we would love to shoot there again – like seriously, send me a message if you’re getting married there;)

Maria and Scott were married during a lovely ceremony at the St. Mary’s of the Assumption Church in Owen Sound, which was worth the short drive from Cobble Beach and then we headed back to the Resort for fun photos by the water, some very delicious food, traditional Polish wedding cake (bread) and an outdoor first dance at dusk, complete with sparklers to start the party.

I could on and on about this couple and the details they put into their day, but I’ll save that for the end of the post in case anyone is interested.  In the meantime, here’s their story in pictures:

Lockhaven, Pennsylvania Destination Country Wedding Photographer – Sandra & Gary

 

It’s freezing out there today… like literally our backyard is an ice rink and the dog can’t be out for more than 10 min before I worry about her little ears falling off from the -22 degree weather we’re getting today.

So in an attempt to get warm, I thought it was time (in fact, long overdue), that I share Sandra and Gary’s destination wedding from June 2014 in Lockhaven, Pennsylvania.  Yep, I am taking you back to the sunny days of June!  When the sun was hot, the burgers were topped with bacon and only the drinks were ice cold.

You’re welcome.

This wedding was set in one of the prettiest places I’ve ever seen.  Gary and Sandra personalized everything for their special day, from the ceremony with washing each other’s feet, to the homemade gourmet burgers topped with bacon flavoured ketchup (should you wish), to the centre pieces that included roses and real cotton.  We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for this outdoor celebration.

Enjoy and stay warm out there!
