Jaymi + Andrew | Intimate DIY Wedding GTA

Sigh.


This wedding completely has my heart. Jaymi and Andrew got married in a small, beautiful and intimate wedding right in her parents backyard! So much hard work and personal items were included (Jaymi and her family made EVERY single piece of furniture and decor themselves!) that every bit of it just represented them and their love story completely. It was relaxed, personal, sweet and so full of love, I was in tears several times and drove home with my head in the clouds when it was over.



I asked Jaymi to describe her special day a bit for you all, and here is what she said:

From the start, we have done it our way and we felt our wedding should be no different. It seemed only fitting that the big day take place on my parents property, personal acreage reminiscent of a Bronte novel. We spent our Sundays in the thrift stores collecting the mismatched china, unique table accessories and vintage books we gifted our guests. Those Sundays not only brought us closer, but made us feel more connected to our guests and coming day. Being Torontonians, we felt the food should be just as tasty and accessible as it is in our own neighbourhood. The Localista Food Truck kept the main menu local, focusing on fresh, homegrown produce and savory home style flavors. With no set seating plan and the truck style service, it truly felt as if everyone was where they should be. We truly felt our wedding was a genuine reflection of our personalities. We promised forever under the willow tree that our children will one day play under and in bare feet danced on the ground that will remain in our family for generations to come. To say it was what we dreamed of is an understatement as it was a night of enchantment that will be remembered forever.


I am so honored to be a part of these special days with my clients. I truly have a place for each of you in my heart for life. Thank you, thank you.

Austin 1.5 Years Old | Rattlesnake Point Family Photos

I love getting to watch my clients and their families grow and change. I can't believe I have been photographing Austin and his beautiful parents for over 1.5 years now! Every single session brings new fun and challenges - and anyone with an 18 month old knows getting them to stay still for a photo is hilarious (cough, impossible) but these guys can do no wrong in my eyes. Every single session with them is flawless and I am obsessed with each one more than the last one.

I am so proud (and sad!) to see the little boy this dude is growing into, and proud to call hem friends!

Kelly + Fab | Hazelton Manner Engagement Party


Do you guys remember Kelly & Fabs' engagement session a couple of months ago? Well, they had a gorgeous tropical themed engagement party for their friends and family that won't be able to make it to their destination wedding - and it was FABULOUS! I wasn't even a guest, and I had an amazing time. Kelly thought of every last detail from decoration to entertainment and every single guest had a huge smile on their face all night. You truly can't ask for more a more upbeat, supportive and excited group of people surrounding these guys!



I am even more ecstatic to shoot their actual wedding in Jamaica in 2016, and continue documenting this new journey for them! Knowing Kelly, it will be absolutely breathtaking.


This gorgeous event was held at the Hazelton Manner in Vaughan, ON.

Melina + Andrew | Vintage Engagement Photos GTA

You know when you meet someone, and you instantly know that you are on the same wavelength? That is how it happened with Melina & Andrew! We met a few months ago to discuss their wedding, and sat around for ages talking about everything we could think about! I knew that these two old souls should have a vintage and carefree photoshoot to show their personalities - so we went on an adventure around Oakville discovering new and beautiful places together!



I'm so excited for their sweet backyard wedding this August. Small weddings are so intimate and emotional and I plan on bawling my eyes out through their entire ceremony!




Liza + Filipes' Wedding | Intimate Weddings Toronto

You saw their engagement photos a couple of months ago, and I'm so excited to share Liza & Filipes' wedding photos with you all! Their ceremony was small and intimate, with only their closest family in attendance (which I love!). Her beautiful peach, blush and pink tones were amazing for spring and I fell in love with her sparkling, lace dress!




After getting ready, we drove over to Sunnyside Beach for some portraits of the two of them, and joined their proud family at Etienne Brule Park for some group shots! I'm so happy for you guys, and I'm really glad that I was able to a tiny part of your day :) Beautiful bouquets by Precious Flowers n' Things.
