Caitie and Josh hosted a very wedding this weekend at the Wakefield Mill Inn and Spa. The weather was inclement – but the food, family and dance moves were great!

Chantal and Simon held their wedding the day after the year’s largest thunderstorm, in the middle of a yea wave, ripped through the Ottawa region. Everyone was very thankful that Mother Nature got it all out of her system a day early. The couple’s intimate wedding at Strathmere, a country Inn south of Ottawa, had a definite vintage theme. Chantal wore a 1950’s inspired wedding dress and bird cage veil and Simon rocked the bow tie and suspenders. Once the music started, a Michael Jackson imitator emerged along with a choreographed group-dance to Bust-A-Move by Young MC. The weather was perfect, the food was great, and Chantal and Simon definitely have this love-thing figured out.

Rachael and Paul were married in late September and planned an amazing wedding, including a humanist minister and a live band, for the family and friends at the Cove Inn in Westport. Ontario resort weddings are something that I would love to shoot more of. There is a level of intimacy and comfort that comes from these lakeside celebrations. Everything about this wedding was very intimate, especially the gifts they gave to each other – custom cat-nose cufflinks for him and a jar of 101 reasons why Paul loved Rachael for her. It was definitely worth the hike up to the Spy Rock lookout in the Foley Conservation Area. A long weekend visit to Westport is definitely happening next year!

Cheers, Blair

 Lee and Eric special ordered the perfect snow for their wedding day. The temperature was perfect and the snow fell gently and consistently all day long. Even the Scotsmen in attendance seemed to enjoy the blanket of white stuff. The couple planned a fantastic wedding at the Strathmere Lodge with loads of personal touches and even a screeching-in ceremony! Their guests were encourage to kiss a frozen fish and take a shot of Newfie rum to become honorary Newfoundlanders. “Deed I is, me ol’ cock! And long may yer big jib draw!”

Congratulations Lee and Eric!

Thanks to Heather and Craig, I can finally say that I have shot a wedding at Stonefields Heritage Farm in Carleton Place! Ever since the proprietors Stephanie and Steve opened the farm for weddings a few years ago, I have desperately wanted to shoot there. It is a great farm setting that is not overrun with hokum – finally! There are no rusty wagon wheels, hay bales, tree swings; just simple, elegant, contemporary-country elements. Heather and Craig surrounded themselves with all of the people who helped shape their lives and that love really comes through in the photos. Stonefields know how to make their clients feel loved and I can’t wait to shoot there again.
