Christine + Elliott's fall wedding at the Brookstreet Hotel and Marshes Golf Club didn't go exactly as planned weather-wise, but that didn't make an ounce of difference to their enthusiasm and joy surrounding their day. They maintained a steady, positive attitude that was contagious to all. A mist during their First Looks didn't stop them from continuing to choose to do all of their creative portraits outdoors - troopers! Taking the lead from the bride and groom, their bridal party and families followed suit, shedding any care they may have had for perfect hairdos and wet feet. Christine and Elliott were even able to follow through with their vision of an outdoor ceremony with the help of the Brookstreet Hotel and the Marshes Golf Club who provided umbrellas for as many of their guests as possible. They finished their day with a lovely and intimate reception. A sunset photo wasn't possible as the sun didn't show its rays all day - but we managed to create a suitable end-of-day photo nonetheless. Thank-you, Christine + Elliott for your trust as we navigated your day together! xo Below are a few highlights of their day with vendor credits to follow.

Robin + Scott's Chateau Laurier wedding was elegant and classy, start to finish. The Prime Minister's Suite was a fitting backdrop for Robin's bridal prep and time spent with her bridesmaids pre-ceremony sipping champagne and sharing laughter. When it was show-time, Robin's sister helped her step into her gown and her girls ensured every last detail was perfect before leading Robin to the Chateau Laurier terrace where Scott was waiting with is groomsmen. The terrace afforded everyone a gorgeous. sunny view of Parliament Hill and the Locks while Robin + Scott exchanged their vows. A few quick photos post ceremony and then Robin + Scott joined their family and friends for a lovely reception in one of the Chateau Laurier's gorgeously appointed ballrooms - elegantly decorated by The Gathering Event Company. Scott's toast to the bride was a genuine reflection of his love for Robin and gained a standing ovation in the house. Congratulations, Robin + Scott - thank-you for giving over your trust to me to capture the elegance of your day.

We can love our four-legged friends as much - and sometimes more - than our two-legged friends - and, they can definitely become part of our family. Sweet Mavi wrapped herself around Hayley's heart, all the while teaching Hayley about riding and the responsibilities that come with caring for a pony. Learning from each other, the two even made it to the Royal Winter Fair in fall of 2019! Mavi has since moved on to the win the heart of another owner but will always have a special spot in Hayley's.
