{Frances & Shaun} Vintage wedding at Port Hope Golf and Country Club

When Frances and Shaun began telling us about their wedding, we had never been to Port Hope.  To get ourselves prepared, we did some research on Penryn Mansion, built in 1859, which sits on the picturesque Port Hope Golf and Country Club, and were instantly excited!  We were even more pleased when we arrived in Port Hope, as everything is so much more beautiful than we had imagined. Frances got ready for the ceremony on site, and it gave us plenty of photo opportunities... Shaun and his guys got ready at the condo of Frances' brother, which was a super cool converted historic school! Shaun wore his grandfather's railway watch, which had been carefully restored for their wedding day. Frances wore a beautiful chiffon dress from Sinders Bridal House, which was perfect! One of the major highlights of our day was photographing the groom's ride...a stunning liquid blue Lotus Evora! Taking a peak of the beautiful ceremony site... All 3 of Frances' attendants travelled far distances to be with her on her wedding day, and the stories of their long standing friendships were pretty inspiring. Seriously, these two looked at each other like this all day--it was really amazing to see how they got lost in each other's eyes so quickly... Port Hope Golf and Country Club has so many little spots for great photos!  This old barn on the property was one of our favorite spots. The bouquets were made by Holton Flowers and had fresh cut lavender from a farm in the county--the scent of lavendar literally filled the mansion! Shaun's custom made suit and hand-tied bow tie made for a dapper look! I am seriously in love with this one... There are some amazing old growth trees still on the property and they seem to filter light just to make photographers swoon... The pool at the Golf and Country Club was perfect for the cocktail hour and some interesting photos! What can I say about their cake?  It was unique, it was delicious, it was cheese!  If you take a closer look, their "topper" was handmade to totally represent them--even with Charlie Brown the dog and Gregory Peck the bird! This was one of the last photos we took that night, and the pool looked gorgeous...even the falling leaves of September made for some spectacular ambiance...
