{Sara & Marc} Vintage Christmas Wedding

Dress:Dominique Levesque Bridal Veil, Gloves, Clutch: Etsy Floral: Keepsakes Almonte Hair and Makeup: Mahogany Salon and Spa, Carleton Place Ceremony & Reception: Temples Sugar Camp Accommodations: Clyde Hall This post is a testament to the fact that social media works...really, really works. Earlier this year, I befriended Sara on Twitter; I had been following a conversation regarding her upcoming vintage styled wedding, and I suggested that she have a look at one my favorite sites, Ruffled Blog. We hit it off, and eventually we got together to talk about their wedding photography. Brian and I were thrilled! Sara has a cool retro vibe going on, and regularly blogs about her ventures into vintage fashion--she's cute, bubbly, and charismatic. Marc, at first, seemed to be the total opposite. He seemed quiet, but gave us a pleasant surprise when he very eloquently told us about many of the details of their day...he was undoubtedly head over heels in love with Sara and an absolute equal in the planning process. They told us of their dream winter wedding, designed around Christmas, which is a very special time for Sara, just as it was for her beloved mother. This past Friday, we had the privilege of photographing Sara and Marc's beautifully intimate, vintage styled wedding. We started out at the gorgeous new Mahogany Salon and Spa, which was an experience in itself! Clyde Hall in the village of Lanark made a stunning backdrop for the preparation, and the beautifully rustic Temple's Sugar Camp was the setting for the unique ceremony. This day was a heartfelt tribute to the love and support of family and friends, both present and regrettably absent. It was very emotional--for those of you who follow our blog, you already know that I cry at some point during each of our weddings--well on Friday, it happened at least 5 times. Sara wore a custom necklace, given to her by Marc's mother, with a photo of her and her mother, and each flower in her bouquet had a specific meaning for her. The brooch attached to it was made by Marc's mother for his grandmother. There was even time set aside to add an ornament to one of the trees in honour of Sara's mother, and it remained there to oversee the festivities. - Written by Ivanette, photographed by Brian & Ivanette

{Heather & Tom} The Engagement

Kingston Ontario Wedding Photographer We first had the opportunity to meet Heather a few months ago at a Starbucks in Ottawa for an initial consultation. She had had a long day interviewing vendors for their wedding, but despite us being the one of the last meetings of the day, that "connection" we all hope for with clients was evident from the get-go. She told us about her chance first meeting with her fiance Tom, and even while regaling us with the hilarious details, her genuine love and adoration for him shone through.
