When Brandy + Trevor contacted Boston Avenue to do their engagement shoot, I was thrilled to have an opportunity to work on a farm for a day. Granted, rather than hard labour, I followed this beautiful couple around Trevor’s family farm capturing sweet moments that came all too easily to them, but it was exciting to get up close and personal with authentic aspects of farm life. The Clydesdale horses that they lovingly interacted with were an incredible “prop” for this shoot, as was the horseshoe and interior of the barn.

Flash forward a bit and I found myself reunited with Brandy + Trevor for their wedding at the Ancaster Mill. The old mill is a beautifully rustic venue built over a creek with lush gardens and natural waterfalls which are connected to the Niagara escarpment. There was magical scenery in every direction we looked, making for the perfect backdrops to our photos: deep blue skies, rich foliage in an array of colours, wood and stonework, and varying levels of stairs to add depth to the images.

The ceremony was marvelous and featured the stunning bride in a gown from the Dina Alonzi Bridal Boutique. Her shoes were made by Jimmy Choo and her jewelry by Disegno Donata. While all eyes were on Brandy most of the time, you couldn’t help but notice the stellar Love by Enzoani bridesmaid dresses and, of course, the handsome groom in his Z Zegna suit.

The reception was decked in glowing candles, lanterns and fireplace light, which was the perfect representation of how warm and loving this couple is. The guests were cozy and the ambiance benefited from the care that they took to keep everybody toasty.

It might surprise you to know that Brandy planned the entire wedding herself, and it went off without a hitch! Her friend designed their 3 tiered modern black and white cake, and Sue Gallo Designs provided spectacular floral arrangements which garnered plenty of compliments.

The night ended with Brandy + Trevor dancing by the fireside, with warmth in their hearts and smiles on their faces!
