Indie Romantic Cambridge Mill Wedding Photography! It was such a pleasure photographing and filming this lovely couple’s wedding! The whole day was very relaxed and low key. It didn’t seem as though anyone was stressed! The bride’s father owns Affinity Luxury Exotic Car Rentals and graciously lent the groom and groomsmen a Lamborghini and Bentley. Of course we had to include shots of these amazing cars! What a thrill! Over at the bride’s place, everyone was calm and collected and anxiously anticipating the ceremony. The ceremony and reception was held at the Cambridge Mill; what a beautiful place for a wedding. The backdrop was breathtaking! We loved how their personal vows reflected their love for each other. We really wanted this highlight to tell the love story they have for each other and their loved ones. They truly are, destined to be together!
Artfully Wed Inspiration Wedding Blog has featured April and Ethan’s engagement photos! We’re pretty excited that their Centreville amusement park engagement photos get to see more of a wide spread audience!
“Ethan and April wanted their portraits to capture “young love” and this time of anticipation for their upcoming wedding. They shared with us that they both enjoy the outdoors and exploring new places together. Ethan also mentioned that he wanted to incorporate an old carousel and cotton candy in their portraits. We immediately thought of Centreville Amusement Park on Toronto’s Centre Island for their shoot! With its grassy open fields and forest surrounding the turn-of-the-century themed park – home to a rare historic carousel and an old-fashioned snack cart – it was, without a doubt, the perfect location. And there is no better season than spring to represent new beginnings with its budding leaves, gorgeous blossoms, and an abundance of young wildlife. We began the session after we met up with April and Ethan, a fellow photographer himself, at the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal where we caught the ferry over to Centre Island! We immediately made our way to the amusement park and found the vintage hand carved wooden carousel – apparently one of only thirty in existence today. Grassland and trees are interspersed throughout the park making for beautiful scenery everywhere you go! The miniature train track bridge over the pond was one of our favourite settings. The session came to a close in front of one of the best views of Toronto’s skyline anywhere! We always love coming to the Islands and cannot wait to return at some point this summer.”
Outdoor Nottawasaga Inn Alliston Wedding Photography… Ethan and April’s fairytale outdoor wedding took place in a private and secluded garden on a waterfront gazebo! The romantic landscape and surrounding forest of Alliston‘s Nottawasaga Inn Resort & Conference Centre made for a dreamy setting and whimsical portraits. The gardens that encompassed the ceremony location were reminiscent of The Secret Garden, having a magical feel. It was April’s parents who first stumbled upon the resort and golf course when searching for a wedding venue for the high school sweethearts. Ethan and April loved it, and so their wedding day vision began to unfold. We loved the soft pale colours they chose, complimenting April’s gorgeous airy and delicate dress! Their private reveal was a beautiful moment – Ethan was speechless as they met up for the first time that day. Their personal ceremony evoked emotion from all as they exchanged their vows. The grounds of the Inn are full of endless photo opportunities. We were fortunate to be able to take several portraits at dusk, even capturing the moon in a few. Their reception was held in the Belvista Room, situated above the main entrance to the Resort. The Belvista Room has large windows along three of its walls overlooking the property and allowing for a lot of natural light! The fun and heartfelt speeches shared throughout the celebration were awesome – we enjoyed getting to know a little bit more about Ethan and April! Their dinner reception was more of a social, rather than a dance party – something different for other couples to consider if they really are not into having a dance. Congratulations to the two of you! We are so excited for you both as you begin your marriage!
