Riverside Wedding Terra Cotta Inn

An ensemble of talented family members had gathered along the riverside.  Their music could be heard all across the grounds of the Terra Cotta Inn as Miranda made her way down the lush green aisle of grass with her parents on either side her.  Her father gave her a kiss on her right cheek just before she joined Scott who was waiting with a smile.  The sun shined its light on them as it peeked in and out from behind the clouds, illuminating the importance of love and family that they hold very dear.

After exchanging vows and celebrating over a meal, Miranda and Scott had a Chinese tea ceremony to offer respect and gratitude to their parents for all the years of love and care, and to represent the important moment of both their families becoming relatives of each other.

Miranda+Scott – you welcomed us into a very important part of your lives together and we thank you for trusting in us to capture it for you to share with your family for generations to come.  We are truly honoured to have shared your day with you.

Miranda’s flowers were arranged personally by her Aunt.

Even more talent from family members in the form of music.

Always love the emotion that shows during the split-second after the first kiss!

A evening out with friends and colleagues during TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) usually brings to mind celebrity sightings, red carpet events and post-event shindigs.  The city takes on a different feel and the buzz of activity in “Hollywood North” makes that feeling one of glitz, glamour and surprise.

One such event played host to two individuals that would meet for the fist time.  They arrived separately with different groups of people, but Melanie and Bryon would find themselves chatting together through the evening while sparking interest in one another.  Before the night was over and saying goodbye, they made a plan to talk again.

Some time passed, but Melanie and Bryon did eventually meet again and what started as greetings and conversations turned into a lifelong commitment of love.

On a gorgeous summer evening just outside of Milton, Melanie and Bryon met with us for their Kelso Conservation Area engagement session.  They walked along the grounds outside of the Halton Region Museum and down the paths while they talked about the excitement of their upcoming wedding day at The Lakeview in Hamilton later this summer and a road trip adventure to Nashville for their honeymoon.

They went on an adventure together.  Motorcycles, back roads, friendly roadside neighbours,… the more they talked about it the better their story unfolded.  Riding through the winding roads and trails of the U.S. west coast had a little more in store for them on one leg of the journey.

After a grueling ride (up what could essentially be called a mountain for us GTA folk!) through weather that couldn’t decide which season it was thinking of with rough and slippery terrain, they reached their goal.  With the rugged path behind them and the weather much more favourable at the top, Jeffrey proposed and Chelsey said yes!

On a beautifully sunny evening in Hamilton, Chelsey and Jeffrey led us down memory lane to the times when they were students for their engagement session at McMaster University.  From Edwards Arch to University Hall, Cootes Paradise to #LakeMcMaster (no joke! check it out here and here!), and a quick chat with William McMaster (well, a statue of him), we were absolutely honoured to help capture the excitement leading up to their wedding day.

After taking a walk along the Chegwin Trail of Cootes Paradise we discovered that the water level was so high that it was over the boardwalk!  But that wasn’t a problem … it was a shoes off and having fun kinda time for this couple!

Chelsey and Jeffrey love to ride motorcycles together, so they brought a couple of their helmets to incorporate into their session with us.  This couple has a cool factor of 1000 x infinity!

Chelsey sent us some inspiration photos of the Edwards Arch and University Hall.  We think we should make her our engagement session location scout!

Good ol’ William McMaster has the best punch lines!

And one last photo at Jeffrey’s request in front of his old stompin’ grounds, the John Hodgins Engineering Building.
