On a beautiful Saturday morning in September, I met Katie at her parents house in Wasaga Beach as she was getting ready for her wedding day. While the house was in a flurry and busy with everyone getting ready, Katie was a picture of beauty, happiness and calmness. She has the best smile and it literally did not come off her face all day! Katie and Jeff are about the sweetest couple I know and have such a beautiful story on how their relationship blossomed. It has been such a blessing to get to know them both over the last few months.
After Katie put on her gorgeous wedding dress from Helen’s Bridal (Barrie) she headed down the stairs for a reveal for all her bridesmaids. She is surrounded by some amazing women who love her so much! After some fun pictures together, we headed to the church to get ready for the official part of the wedding day.
Their ceremony at Saint Jean Vinanney in Barrie was simple, sweet and filled with love. After committing their lives together in front of God and all their family and friends we headed to Sunnidale Park in Barrie for official family and bridal party pictures. They are both surrounded by some pretty fantastic people- both family and friends.
The wedding reception was held at Drysdale’s Tree Farm in Barrie. This was my first time there shooting a wedding and let me tell you– Katie and Jeff did an amazing job in choosing a location and decorating it! The space was so awesome! From all the printed pictures, personalized tree saplings as place markers to the elegant tables- everything was perfect! My personal favourite was the butter tarts and the candy table– but I’m partial to sweet things!
We stayed until the dances, bouquet and garter toss and it was so much fun! When we left the party was really getting started and I’m sure it was happening dance floor all night! Before we left we headed outside and got some fun night shots. Seriously though, I’d love to experiment with some more night photography shoots– I am loving how they turned out. And isn’t the LOVE sign awesome?! Such a cool addition to any wedding reception.
Thank you again Jeff and Katie for allowing me to tell your wedding story. You are so blessed to have one another and I loved watching you lovingly look at each other all day. May this new journey of marriage bring you so much joy and blessings!
Here are a select few of my favourites. I always say a few but really its like a lot. I’m terrible at narrowing down and I really feel I need to share more to tell the whole story! A huge shout out to Alex of Photos by Alexandria for helping me out for the day. She held lights, read lists and climbed railings like a rockstar! Her beautiful pictures are sprinkled throughout this blog post.
Also as always, here is a list of all the talented vendors that helped make this beautiful day possible!
