Where do I begin… upon my first meeting with Louisa & Michael I immediately felt like we have known each other for years. Their warm and genuine spirit just has a way of making you feel at ease immediately, and you could instantly tell that you are just going to adore working with these two and they were simply a joy. Every detail of their special day was carefully and beautifully thought through. We had a great time with their awesome supportive and very entertaining bridal party snapping pictures on the roof top parking garage downtown Windsor Ontraio overlooking the Detroit river skyline and then visited the Low Martin Mansion. A historic beautiful Mansion filled with so many photo opportunities it was so difficult to narrow down favourites. These are some of my favourite highlights from the Bride & Groom’s beautiful day. Enjoy taking a peek at everything —  From the stunning decor by Elegance by Design Inc, florals by the crazy talented floral artist CJH FloralsBadgley Mischka Shoes, gorgeous Pnina Tornai Kleinfeld gown, live band entertainment, and stunning delicious Cake and Desserts by Shelby’s Sweet Shoppe and all the wonderful welcoming staff at Ciociaro Club . It was a memorable night filled with laughter and joy, complete with the groom’s special live performance on stage to his beautiful bride.

This engagement session felt straight out of fairy tale – Every aspect was perfection, starting with the adorable puppy, Cohen that stole the show (just wait and see what I mean). I want to write pages of how awesome this couple is from their sheer gorgeousness to their generosity and genuine down to earth nature. With Louisa’s attention to detail and Michael’s hard work and dedication, I can’t wait to see and document their wedding day. It is a privilege and honour to be part of such a life event, I can’t wait to celebrate as they become Mr & Mrs! Also, Thank you to the rock star florist Cori from CJH florals for the beautiful bouquet!

We began our session at the same restaurant that Taylor asked Jessica to be his wife (how are romantic right?) The staff at Wineology Bar & Restaurant graciously allowed us the use of their beautiful restaurant to grab a few romantic photos before we set off to finish off the evening on the private beach of Taylor’s grandparents home. Jessica thought of everything from gold glitter filled balloons, fancy Champagne and adorable gold speckled champagne flutes on a wooden tray complete with a starfish so that I could have props to photograph her gorgeous ring on. I can only imagine the thought she will put it into her wedding day details. Every day I am floored by the awesome people I get to work with and am so glad our paths crossed so that I may witness you two become Mr. and Mrs.

    You are the best and the most perfect fit for our day!!! We can’t say enough great things about you and how wonderful you made this day for us!!!ReplyCancel

Sharing some of my favourite images from this gorgeous wedding and hoping to surprise the bride and groom while they are still on their honeymoon for the week in Costa Rica. // they have WIFI I checked :) // I’m starting off the season by keeping true to the promise I made to myself this past winter. Share more images Alina! I have been keeping so many wedding and engagement images to myself and that’s just not right. So here’s to a fresh start! So watch out for an avalanche of photos as I will be over-sharing in the coming months.

Lena & Jesse’s classic and elegant wedding was flawlessly beautiful– starting from the bride’s gorgeous lace back gown to the soft blush petals of the bouquets. The groom, smitten with his beautiful bride was dressed in a handsome navy suit and together with friends and family they said their “I Do’s” on the beautiful historic grounds of Fort Malden of Amherstburg. Before the ceremony however they first shared a sweet “first look” at Hiram Walker of Windsor Ontario. I will be sharing what a first look looks like and entails in a future blog post if any of my future brides wish to do this at their wedding. The first look location, Hiram Walker Canadian Club Brand Centre will close it’s door indefinitely at the end of this wedding season and I am thankful I had the opportunity to photograph at this beautiful location one more time. I am hopeful that this isn’t truly the end for this landmark.

We couldn’t have been blessed with a more radiant day to celebrate their marriage. Reception followed the lovely ceremony at the Ciociaro Club of Windsor, where the brand new Mr. & Mrs. snuck outdoors for their mini-sunset shoot that I eagerly insist with every couple. It is one of my most favourite parts of the day and the perfect completion to a perfect day– Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs!

First Look Venue // Hiram Walker Limited

Ceremony // Fort Malden of Amherstburg

Reception // Ciociaro Club of Windsor

Special thank you to my lovely second shooter and friend // Tina Neufeld of Tina Neufeld Photography

These two lovely people are getting married this weekend! The past year flew by since these engagement photos were photographed near Jesse’s family farm. I first met Lena through the church we attend and I have seen her grow into such a stunning woman both inside and out— recently graduated from her studies to become a nurse (second nurse Im sharing with you guys in one week) she is so excited to walk down the aisle to the love of her life and I can only imagine will make thee most gorgeous bride on her big day. Jesse watch out, pack tons of tissue cause you are going to need them.
