Elizabeth and John’s distillery district wedding on Friday was practically a fairytale- seeing their vision come to life was so special. Every little detail was thought of, surprises here and there for family and guests, and of course, a perfectly matched bride and groom to celebrate!

After Lizz’s brother surprised everyone by officiating their ceremony, we had the chance to stroll around the historic cobblestone streets in the distillery district to take some bride and groom portraits and pop an engraved lock onto the infamous ‘love grid’ in one of the alleys.

Lizz and John brought on a lot of talented folks to help out with their big day, and every single one contributed to the final look and feel of such a special day. See below for full vendor list!

I’m so glad I was a part of this beautiful wedding and even more beautiful love story. Thank you Mr & Mrs Boot!

Katelyn and Philip’s Hamilton wedding last weekend was a pleasure to witness- everyone agreed in their speeches that their love is so pure, so true and meant to be, that you just can’t help but smile and know that on May 21st, they made the best choice ever!

Even though Katelyn initially spent their first date thinking Phil’s name was actually Stan, they got over the misunderstanding, laughed it off, and have been side by side ever since. Their love bloomed ‘across the pond’ and they have since made the move back to Canada, where Philip can now enjoy all of the Tim Horton’s we have to offer.

Thank you for allowing me to share in your special day!
