So we’ve gone from record spring temperatures, which felt more like summer days these past few weeks, back to winter and the snow we never really had much of in the Toronto area.  That sort of winter has been just fine with me, but since snow (what an awful thought!) is in the forecast for later today, here’s a reminder of the one or two days we had with snow this winter; which happened to be just what Krysten wanted for her engagement session.   Instead of rescheduling the session due to rain and bad weather, we actually rescheduled several times in order to have a time with ice and snow!  Lucky Krysten got her wish, and for one day at least, we had enough snow for this session to work.

I’m personally hoping not to see any of the white stuff for their mid-May wedding!

I love this image below — something about it reminds me of ‘Dr. Zhivago’,  one of my favorite classic movies.

In the mad rush of wedding edits, I completely forgot to blog these few from Jackie and Todd’s session at the Queenshead Pub here in dwontown Burlington.  It’s so funny that in all my winter e-sessions, this was one of the few where the weather was actually bad enough to want to be inside.

Jackie and Todd are getting married this Saturday, so I’m crossing my fingers their wedding day will be among some of the prettiest March days we’ve seen for a long time in TO, and not the rainy/snowy day it was when these were taken.

Can’t wait for your wedding this weekend!

I could have spent hours photographing this lovely decor from A and J’s beautiful East Indian wedding a few weeks ago.  Naphisha Vohra of The Perfect Setting, completely transformed Otello’s Banquet Hall into a twilight woodland paradise, complete with floating candles, votive strung branches and trees, and the most beautiful twilight blue and purple lighting imaginable.

I am still head over heels in love with the images from Jenna and Andrew’s beautiful destination wedding at Azul Sensatori in the Mayan Riviera.  Aside from having some down time at a fabulous resort, I had a great time getting to know the oodles friends and family who came down to join them for the week.

It was really hard to decide which images to blog; really, really, really hard.  This was a wedding where I could have blogged every single one!  Jenna and Andrew get a huge gold star for doing eveything – yes, everything – I asked them to do and then some.  Thank you both for being so wonderful, and adventurous!

So here you go, images of the wedding day at the incredibly beautiful Azul Sensatori resort.

What a great Valentine surprise to find my images from Melissa and Chris’s wedding featured on Toronto wedding gown designer Lisa Van Hattem’s blog yesterday.  As you might remember from previous posts last year, Melissa commissioned Lisa to create her beautiful red silk dupioni bridal dress.    Lisa is such a talented designer, and a wonderful person to work with!  So many brides think the idea of a custom gown might not be an option within reach, but I encourage you to visit Lisa’s website, and blog and make an appointment to see her in person;  you’ll be very surprised at just how attainable  it can be.  You don’t want your day to be like anyone eles’s — why wear a dress that any other bride can have!

 

You can check out the full red wedding dress post from Lisa’s blog here:

And you can see all her wonderful creations by visiting her website here.

Happy dress dreaming!!!
