Time honoured traditions go hand in hand with wedding ceremonies, but it’s a little unique to have an opportunity to wed in the exact same church where your grandparents were married over 50 years ago! Tania + Sean, friends of Holly and Simon, were married at the gorgeous St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church where Tania’s grandparents spoke their vows!

After meeting and falling in love at Western University, Sean knew he wanted to spend the rest of his days with Tania and proposed to her in High Park with a special picnic. It was very sweet and romantic!

Tania had a lovely morning before the ceremony where she had her hair done by Rico of Italy and read wonderfully sentimental cards from her fiancé. She wore a whimsical petal-laced Watters gown with Badgley Mischka blush heels which featured dainty petals near the peep toe. Her large white rose bouquet was the perfect complement to her head-to-toe floral aesthetic.

Sean had a touch of personal sentiment on his wedding day as well. He wore his grandfather’s cufflinks and a handsome watch given to him by Tania’s father. He looked amazing in his custom made tux by Harry Rosen!

The ceremony was truly beautiful, from the church itself to the words that were spoken. The couple looked serene as they were joined together. The bridesmaids, all wearing pretty purple Monique L’Huillier gowns, stood by watching with misty eyes.

Once the ceremony was over, we had the wedding portrait session outside the church. The church, as you can see, was amazing! We took countless classic shots, along with many playful ones that showed off the groomsmen’s wacky socks and personalities.

The reception took place at The Granite Club where guests enjoyed a lovely cocktail hour outdoors before the bride and groom made their grand entrance. Stunning florals were provided by Linden Grove. We all stood by as the newlyweds danced their first dance, thanked their loved ones for joining them and ate delicious food (including to-die-for deserts!).

Congratulations, Tania + Sean!

I’ll say it over and over. We are so lucky to do what we do. Shooting Brandy + Trevor at their Clydesdale farm takes this statement to the next level!

It’s said that farm work is the hardest work, and I don’t doubt that! From tending to horses to reaping crops in the fields, it wouldn’t seem that there’d be much time for play. Yet, one sunny afternoon I found myself on a working farm running, jumping, laughing and climbing!

We had the great pleasure of shooting Brandy + Trevor’s engagement portraits on Trevor’s family farm. This wasn’t just any farm; this was a chic Clydesdale farm! The barn was functional, but aesthetically pleasing, with clean lines and shades of slate. We took a few photos in front of the black door and then made our way inside for a series of rather acrobatic shots! Brandy + Trevor were soap opera worthy with their natural poses and keen use of props – I was very impressed! They stood tall with a rustic lucky horseshoe and chased one another up and down the ladder. They portrayed the perfect balance of down to earth elegance.

Other shots included cowboy boots and lace, glamorous lounging against hay bales and family photos with their sweet dog. My camera took full advantage of the shiny red tractor and impeccably groomed Clydesdale horses!

The best thing about shooting this gorgeous couple was that all of these stills seem to be in motion. There was such life in each moment, which translated to film in such a beautiful way.

Falon + Nick are the kind of couple that makes every single person out there wish they had a romantic partner to love. They are incredibly sweet together and absolutely adore one another! Their love and appreciation for photography made this an especially fun wedding to shoot.

The wedding party spent the morning at the Monte Carlo Inn in Vaughan getting ready for their amazing day! The bridesmaids, who were all so very close and sisterly, were there to help Falon with her gorgeous princess cut gown and her delicately beaded crystal and lace veil.

Falon + Nick met before the ceremony for a special “First Look” that was full of sweetness. Falon was a vision on this warm and sunny September day as she set eyes on her groom in the wedding garden at the Paradise Banquet Centre in Vaughan. She crossed the covered bridge with Nick’s back to her, and then he was able to turn and drink in the view of his beautiful bride. He was truly excited and they shared a long embrace before the outdoor ceremony was set to begin.

After a few minutes and a lot of photos, we headed over to the ceremony site where Nick met his best man at the altar. His father was his best man and was honoured to stand by his son on such a special day. The couple spoke their vows in front of their friends and family, and then walked hand in hand down the winding stone path as husband and wife. We then took wedding portraits at McMichael Gallery in Kleinberg which were breathtaking and inspiring!

The elegantly decorated black, white and purple reception offered an authentic Italian spread complete with antipasto and a five course meal. The guests spent the evening dancing and celebrating, toasting to the newlyweds and wishing them all the best that the world has to offer!

Congratulations, Falon + Nick!
