Spectacular Fall Wedding Colours on Display at Stewart Park

Everything was simply perfect” …Andrea


John and I met Andrea and Josh at my daughter’s wedding events, as Josh is a cherished friend of my new son-in law. I adored them from the minute I met them. I loved their spirit, warmth, compassion and laughter. Their joy of life is electric. Then they announced a beautiful fall wedding to be held in Perth Ontario.

Relaxing Time getting ready at the Mahogany Salon and Spa

Mahogany Salon and Spa was a stunning location for the Bride, Bridesmaids and Mom’s to start their day and the excitement and energy flowed from these awesome women. A beautiful luncheon was all ready for them once their hair and make-up was complete. Special thanks to the staff for the attentive attention to detail for the Wedding Party. It was a unique location for Andrea as she works at the Spa, and totally exciting for the staff to have a peek of “one of their own” on her Wedding Day.

John met Josh and the Groomsmen at the Nevis Estates in Perth ON. This beautiful B&B was a perfect backdrop for the guys. I had a giggle viewing the photos as I guess from a girls standpoint we always wash and dry our hair before getting dressed but not so with guys I guess..lol. There was a parade to the sink and shower 🙂 Incredibly not a drop on their tuxes…I am so impressed 🙂 What a fun bunch of guys and of course a ton of laughter between them.

Vintage 1964 Ford Falcon Wedding Car

The beautiful ceremony was held at St, James Anglican church in Perth and I was excited to see the 1964 Ford Falcon Ragtop was sitting out front. If Andrea and Josh were nervous it certainly didn’t show as both were all smiles and absorbed in the ceremony celebration of husband and wife. Andrea’s Grandmother looked wonderful and we took some very important photos of her, with them, after the registry signing.

The Wedding party rode to Stewart Park for photos in the Limo and Andrea and Josh drove the pristine 1964. Awesome wedding party and some fun times with them at the park. The 16C weather for Oct 29th was incredible and certainly assisted in keeping them warm for our location photos with Andrea and Josh. They are wonderful together!

Fun loving Couple!

Let the party begin and the night was filled with so much laughter. The Code’s Mill on the Park served a delicious meal and is such a perfect location for a Fall Wedding. Wonderful heartfelt speeches with hilarious moments brought to light 🙂 Alex from Dynamix Productions was incredible and kept the dance floor going all evening.

Thank you Andrea and Josh for your trust, friendship and asking us to capture your Wedding memories. We were so truly honoured to be a part of your fabulous day!

Our love to you both. Xxoo

Fall Wedding Celebration at Codes Mill On The Park – Perth Ontario | Andrea + Josh

Historic Limestone buildings provide the ideal intimate backdrop

Just a super fabulous morning with Amanda and Jakob in beautiful downtown Kingston. We met at Le Chien Noir and they braved the frigid morning of zero degrees (but sunny!). Amanda and Jakob were “good to go” with a more editorial look and have such a wonderful connection as a couple. I must say the camera loves them 🙂

On Tour through Downtown Kingston to City Hall and Confederation Basin Marina

We ducked into City Hall for a quick moment so everyone could warm up a bit and as I turned around Jakob removed Amanda’s high heel to warm her foot in his hand…such a gentleman….yes for sure I took a photo which resulted in a ton of laughter 🙂 Candid moments!!! lol. Your love together shows so deeply, the way you are as a couple, and the emotion when you look at each other. Loved our day with you both.

We are so honoured to capture the memories of your Wedding Day next July.

Our thanks Amanda and Jakob! xxoo

Fall Wedding Celebration is Fresh and Fun for all

Blessed with Perfect Weather and Beautiful Scenery

We have known Brad for years ….and years actually 🙂 John and I were thrilled to hear that after 8.5 years together Crystal and Brad were finally taking the leap, but even more touching was to be asked to capture their Fall Wedding Day. They are down to earth, totally family oriented and love to chat which works great for me as you know 🙂 This Wedding Day is also very special to their children Kori, Trai and Will who were an integral part in the Wedding Party and their life together.

It poured rain all morning but since I watch the weather hour by hour, I was sure that their outdoor Wedding at the Lion’s Club Beach was a go. I arrived at their home and Crystal asked if it had stopped raining. Yes I replied and she remarked she had not even looked at the forecast what so ever. Crystal is a go with the flow personality so she was calm, cool and totally collected for the day. Casi was there doing the girl’s hair (looked amazing) and also applied Crystal’s makeup for her. Fall Wedding Days are full of emotion and Mom had a moment while she adjusted Crystal’s necklace but she would not be the only one that day. Weddings have a flood of memories and energy attached to certain moments and usually at every Wedding these happy moments come to the forefront.

Touching Wedding Moments

As I arrived at the Ceremony site Will and Trai were busy escorting the guests to their seats…so adorable! Brad was beaming as Crystal descended the aisle with her Mom. Robin Jones our Westport Mayor performed a beautiful ceremony for them. Crystal and Brad both had some touching moments as they read their vows to each other. An emotional moment as they commit to each other their love, and devotion for the adventure and journey they were about to embark on as husband and wife. Julia Friesen played the violin for the ceremony beautifully!

The location session was at a well-known hunting camp near Westport. Marty and Janet created a delicious Turkey dinner for this Thanksgiving weekend dinner and totally enjoyed by all.

Dancing Under the Stars

Dancing on the deck under the stars and lights and a quick trip to the lake for some night shots. Crystal you were beautiful and I caught Brad many times quietly looking at you with a gentle smile.

John and I wish you a lifetime of love and laughter with your family.

Our love to you both and thank you for asking as to capture a special moment in time for all of you.xxoo

Intimate Fall Wedding by the Lake in Westport Ontario | Crystal + Brad

Couple Celebrate their Happily Ever After in Style

Fall Wedding in the park – true to Bride & Groom’s Vision

Meghan and Eric are both Engineers and live in a small mining town in Northern Ontario and when I say North, that would be North of Kenora, although home base for them is Kingston and Ottawa. They met 10 years ago at Queen’s University in Kingston so a fall wedding in Perth Stewart Park seemed like a perfect halfway point. Guests arrived from all over North America, from coast to coast and everywhere in between for their Wedding Day. The quaint town of Perth, Ontario and the historic Code’s Mill on the Park was the destination venue for their special celebration as it offered a relaxed, unique experience for their guests and their love for a small town atmosphere.

Memorable Wedding Gifts for the Bridesmaids and Groomsmen

Meghan’s Mom handmade beautiful shawls for the Bridesmaids as Fall weather can be unpredictable. The personalized men’s wedding ties for the Wedding Party were custom created and sewn by Meghan with their unique personalities in mind. A very creative family!

The air was calm and serene as Meghan walked along the path toward the ceremony site in Stewart Park and Eric stood calm and collected. As she made her way down the aisle she glanced at Eric to see his reaction. Their eyes met, Meghan’s smile made his heart melt and Eric managed to fight back his tears but I must say just barely 🙂 Love, commitment and friendship had brought them to this point in time and an array of emotions, brought to life, in a mere moment.

Wedding Couple pose  at Perth Ontario 200 anniversary Dry Stone Bridge

The rain predicted held off so we trooped to every corner of the park for photos and the soft cloud cover of the day awarded us with beautiful soft light and vibrant colour, as the wedding party and couple took in the colourful Tay River and the new arrival of the Perth Ontario Bicentennial Dry Stone Legacy Project Bridge – absolutely stunning!

The guests received maple sugar candy as the Perth area is world renowned for Maple syrup, taffy and candy. A divine and thoughtful token of thanks from Meghan and Eric to their many guests sharing in their day.

Our thanks to the Wedding Party for braving the Tay River, warm personalities and thoughtful assistance all day. And especially to Meghan and Eric, we loved your down to earth hearts and our thanks for your trust in our captures. We adore you both and welcome you to your new life adventure as husband and wife.

xo John and Ruth
