a dreamy little celebration at Queen's Landing in NOTL. if you recognize these two love birds it might be from their "fall in love" engagement session last year. romantic and charming with a few personal touches is how matt and christina exchanged their vows!
it's all about timing. they knew eachother because they were in the same program at Brock University. their paths had crossed several times but they didn't ever stop to talk to eachother. five years later...it was finally their time. Christine was working at RW&co at the local mall and Rob came in to buy jeans. It wasn't long before he was returning those same pair of jeans... and leaving his number. She called the number... they fell in love.
they decided to celebrate at the Honsberger Estate in Jordan, a perfect setting for a chill, casual celebration! Here are just a few of our favourite images from their wedding day!
the most anticipated moment of the day is often when the groom gets to see his bride for the first time. Rob could hardly contain his excitement...
congratulations again beautiful lovebirds! xo
it was about 8 years ago...back in the film days, that i photographed jessica and mike's wedding! despite the rainy skies they were as bright and sunshiny as ever! probably cause they were madly in love and a little rain wasn't going to ruin their day! jessica's bouquet was just as lovely-i expected nothing less as she was a talented florist herself! seems like a life time ago and since that magical day, i have watched jessica build her business over the years! so happy for her successes!
i visited her newly renovated barn and we had a chance to talk about the wedding industry over tea and her mom's recipe of really great cookies.

Favourite memory from your career so far? 'Recently we were able to move from our basement studio space to a newly renovated barn studio behind the house! This has been an awesome move; both with so much more space to work in as well as a much larger cooler space to fill especially in the summer months!'
If you weren't an incredible designer of beautiful florals what would be your dream job? 'Hmm that’s a good question….a personal shopper maybe or a massage therapist'
On your day off...where would we find you? 'Enjoying time with my little girl, danica & hubby, working in the garden, pinning away on Pinterest or redecorating my home.'
