This past weekend, we celebrated Glory and Tony’s Harding Waterfront Estate wedding, and it was so incredible! Not only was this the most “normal” wedding we’ve had in almost a year, but Glory and Tony’s family and friends were the kindest and warmest people. Everything from prep to the speeches was rife with the markings of deep and intimate relationships. There was a moment during the speeches that I (Veronica) forgot I was a photographer and simply felt like a guest, able to witness and take part in this amazing day!

Glory and Tony’s wedding was rife with the markings of deep and intimate relationships

Glory and Tony were inspired by water and the colours of sunset (check out the photos at the bottom!). Their engagement session was on the beach and Harding Waterfront Estate is by the lake, so they decided on a sunset-like rose for the bridesmaid dresses and the groom’s bowtie and pocket square. Even their rings were rose gold! They let the warmth of the dusty pink tones and the gorgeous venue stand on their own, complimenting them with simpler decor in white, green, and natural wood. From a polaroid guestbook, to a magical sunset at the end of the day, Glory and Tony’s day was romantic, thoughtful, and full of personal and special moments that we had the privilege of documenting!

Glory and Tony, thank you so much for having us be a part of your day! We absolutely loved getting to know your friends and family and being able to join in your celebrations! You’ll notice we’ve included SO MANY photos in this post. We loved so many of them and couldn’t narrow it down! We hope you enjoy them and we can’t wait to share the rest soon!

When you work with phenomenal vendor teams, events like this Back to the Cabin elopement are absolute dreams to photograph! This wedding was beautifully designed and executed, thanks to our couple and the team that rallied to get them married. Keep scrolling to get your fill of this lavender and leather elopement, packed with purple tones and the coolest custom details!

After months of changing plans, Sam and Colin eloped on a Wednesday afternoon with Samantha and Lexy (their planner who we’ve loved working with before!) as witnesses. However, what might have been missing in numbers was more than made up for in intentionality. With a first look and a private dinner, Sam and Colin were able to really take time for themselves. Their personal chef took good care of Sam and Colin, bringing out delicious and beautiful plates, explaining each dish as he poured them a glass of wine.

They made the day their own in the big and in the in-between moments.

The elopement took place at Back to the Cabin, a beautiful A-frame tucked away in the woods. The Scandinavian-inspired Airbnb is surrounded by calm creeks and ethereal waterfalls. Altogether, the environment fit beautifully into the fairytale feel of the day. A custom stationery suite commemorated their venue with a sketch and added whimsy to the details with ripped edges and romantic calligraphy. Also, an overflowing bouquet of pastel and ivory blooms and a coffee-flavoured cake decorated with textured florals hit the right balance between traditional and magical. We absolutely loved seeing how Sam and Colin’s personalities found space in their details and decisions. They made the day their own in the big and in the in-between moments.

Sam and Colin, thank you so much for inviting us into your special celebration! We loved being able to document your day and watching the deep friendship and love between you. We wish you all the best in this new and exciting season of life! Congratulations!

A couple weeks ago, we got to help Sally and Jeff celebrate at their Artscape Wychwood Barns wedding reception! We hadn’t seen them since their engagement session in the fall of 2019, so we were ready to take more beautiful photos of them!

Sally and Jeff were married last summer, when gatherings were limited to five people. Instead of postponing, Sally and Jeff decided to go ahead with their original wedding date with their fathers as witnesses. Their mothers watched and celebrated outside the room through a window. Although we couldn’t be there ourselves, we were so touched by their example of sacrifices and compromises for the sake of love. And we were so blessed to see Sally and Jeff’s joy and hope through it all!

This time around, Sally and Jeff decided to have a socially-distanced receiving line to celebrate with some of the people they couldn’t connect with last year! With Artscape Wychwood Barns as a backdrop, Sally and Jeff got to have mini get-togethers with friends and family and safely send them off filled with good memories and amazing food from The Food Dudes. With a high-low satin gown, a navy and champagne colour pallet, and a gorgeous ride (check it out below!), Sally and Jeff had the perfect classic summer celebration!

Sally and Jeff, thank you so much for including us in your wedding celebration! It was such a joy to watch you connect with your loved ones and relive the warmth and celebration of your wedding day. And we’re so glad to get to give you guys a pseudo-anniversary session! Congratulations!

Cecilia and Josh’s Waterdown Farm wedding was a day filled with love, family, and lots and lots of warmth and sun! Cecilia and Josh’s engagement session last fall was beautiful but cloudy, so having a sunny day for their wedding made our photographer hearts incredibly happy!

This day was extra special because Cecilia officially became a vet on the same day as her wedding! Of course we had to start the day with some photos with her cat Pim! With his little bowtie, Pim was the cutest addition to the bridal party, and with the help of some bacon, he was pretty easy to entice for prep photos.

It was clear that Josh and Cecilia were so happy to be finally getting married! Having scheduled their day with lots of buffer time, they were able to soak in their day without distractions. Their intimate reception was fun and relaxed, with custom-labelled wine and family dogs lounging nearby. The dreamy sunset glow perfectly complimented the fresh and romantic summer details and we were even able to get gorgeous photos in the peony rows on the property! The day ended with a sparkler exit, closing the perfect summer celebration.

Cecilia and Josh, you guys were amazing!! From trusting us to beautifully capture your relationship to taking the time to just enjoy each other and your families, we couldn’t have imagined a better way to celebrate, and we can’t wait to see your love continue to grow through the years!

Jessica and Wesley’s Richmond Hill wedding is a beautiful example of how you don’t need to compromise the details when having to make last-minute changes to your wedding!

You may remember Jess and Wes from their Toronto Islands engagement session, one of our all-time favourites from 2020. Although their wedding day weather was unpredictable (think sunny morning followed by an afternoon of rainy downpours every 20 minutes on a day that called for no rain at all), Jess and Wes stayed committed to enjoying their day, their family, and each other. Originally planned for later this spring, their wedding was moved up as restrictions kept changing last minute. With an amazing team of vendors and family, Jess and Wes pulled together a warm, heartfelt, and romantic day full of thoughtful details.

Savouring everything, Jess and Wes lived in the moment.

Lighthearted and fun, they enjoyed as many wedding moments as possible. From sharing a first look to creating a reception feel for their family-only supper afterwards, their uncompromising focus allowed them to experience the feel of a pre-pandemic wedding where others might have given up hope. As we watched Wes tear up while Jess walked down her backyard aisle, we knew it would be one of our favourite memories. They savoured everything. They lived in the moment.

Jess and Wes, thank you for including us in your beautiful day. As you worked past restrictions, fickle weather, and last-minute vendor changes, you’ve inspired us to encourage other couples to hold on to their hope for a meaningful wedding day that will be remembered long after it is over. We’re so grateful for this chance to celebrate your new marriage. Congratulations!

This Cambridge Mill anniversary session was such a wonderful way to get back into the rhythm of shooting again! When Ramona and Rabih shared that they wanted to celebrate the very first conversation they had, we were sold. We love celebrating the small moments! Those are the ones that often lead to especially sentimental memories. Ramona and Rabih got married during the pandemic and hadn’t had official photos taken! We were so happy to help memorialize what they weren’t able to on their wedding day, wearing their wedding outfits and including small mementos. We got to take some beautiful detail shots (something usually reserved for the wedding day itself), and Ramona wore a gorgeous classic cape.

Ramona and Rabih were enjoying themselves and enjoying their time together, which is our goal for every session we do.

It’s no secret that we love gorgeous light. So having the sun out in the middle of March is always something we’re extra grateful for. Although winter sessions can be a little more tricky to set up, we love giving tips on making the most of the season! The sun set just as we finished up on Cambridge Mill’s classic balcony overlooking the Grand River. The beautiful stonework surrounds the whole Mill, and there are beautiful places for photos both inside and outdoors! We walked around the building, getting to know each other and stopping for photos from different vantage points.

We could tell Ramona and Rabih were enjoying themselves and enjoying their time together, which is our goal for every session we do! This Cambridge Mill Anniversary Session was definitely a highlight, and we’re excited to share upcoming sessions in the next month!

Ramona and Rabih, thank you for including us in your celebration! We love how special it was to you both, and hope you love your images as much as we do!

Danielle and Kevin’s gorgeous Crystal Fountain wedding day was our first full wedding day of the year! After months of engagement sessions and two-hour ceremonies, it felt amazing to be behind the camera for the entire day. We had Danielle and Kevin’s engagement session only a few weeks before, and it was such a treat to see them again so soon!

Danielle and Kevin are both such attentive and thoughtful people and together they are a power-house of serving others. Throughout the day, we watched Danielle and Kevin care for their relatives and be considerate towards their vendors. Multiple times we were approached by them to make sure we had something to eat and drink and were doing alright. It’s this type of other-centeredness that makes us excited for how they’ll use their marriage to love and serve others!

…we could taste the love and sorrow intermingling in such a bittersweet moment.

Already, we could see how their union was bringing such joy and encouragement to their families and friends. One moment in particular stood out to us: the father of the bride’s speech. We had seen Danielle’s father throughout the day, in little moments. He seemed reserved and calm. But when he got up to speak, there wasn’t a single dry eye. His pride and love for his daughter was palpable. At the end of this speech, they hugged. For a moment, we were witnesses to a special scene: daughter holding father, father with a sadness in his eyes that could only be for the loss of one of his most precious gifts. They held each other, and we could taste the love and sorrow intermingling in such a bittersweet moment.

It is a memory that we will appreciate forever. It’s moments like these that make us feel so honoured to be wedding photographers.

Danielle and Kevin, thank you for the trust you’ve placed in us. Thank you for how well you encouraged us through your words and your wedding! You truly know how to make people feel seen and care for. We hope you love seeing yourselves through our cameras, and re-living your wedding through our eyes! Congratulations again, and may God bless you as you begin this next chapter of life!

Sofia and Jérémie’s relationship has been very-well documented here at ITA. At Zach and Esme’s wedding last summer, we got a photo of the two of them marking their “dating” stage. Six months later, we captured Jérémie’s Christmas Eve proposal. A few months after that, we were able to cover their COVID engagement session when they stayed at our parents’ place during the province’s closures. And this past weekend, Sofia and Jérémie exchanged vows in a small backyard wedding.

As many couples have had to do during this season, Sofia and Jérémie were forced to make a tough decision as their wedding date approached with no news about their venue reopening. They had originally planned for a large wedding in Montréal, but instead, they had to create a much smaller version of their big day. In the end, their day turned out to be a wonderful and sunny reflection of their joy as they started their own family.

Having a small backyard wedding meant that they were able to spend so much of the day together.

Despite the last minute planning, we were able to make decisions that contributed to making a detail-oriented wedding day. Sofia miraculously found her wedding dress online with minimal tailoring needed. The reception centrepieces were borrowed from Naomi and John‘s wedding. We were able to rent chairs instead of using a mix of dining and patio chairs. It also helped that our immediate families include multiple wedding vendors. Jérémie’s dad officiated, John built the arbor, Naomi coordinated, and we were able to cover their photos throughout the day. Not to mention that our mom is an extreme planning master.

Sofia and Jé weren’t discouraged by how their big day was so different from their original plans. They loved how intimate it had become. They loved how they were able to reach even more friends and family by streaming it. And they loved how they didn’t have to stress about driving to various locations. But most of all, they loved how having a small backyard wedding meant that they were able to spend the entire day together.

Sofia and Jé, we’re so happy for you, and we’re grateful that you now have each other unconditionally. Sofia, you were such an incredibly gorgeous bride, and we love that you were able to relax and have your fun moments. We’re so proud of you, and grateful for you. Is it weird that we miss you so much already? Jé, we can’t imagine a better husband for Sofia. We can’t wait to experience more of your goofiness as well and watch how you become an even dearer part of our family. We love you both.

They had originally planned for a large wedding in Montréal, but instead, they had to create a much smaller version of their big day. In the end, their day turned out to be a wonderful and sunny reflection of their joy as they started their own family.

Having a small backyard wedding meant that they were able to spend so much of the day together.

Despite the last minute planning, we were able to make decisions that contributed to making a detail-oriented wedding day. Sofia miraculously found her wedding dress online with minimal tailoring needed. The reception centrepieces were borrowed from Naomi and John‘s wedding. We were able to rent chairs instead of using a mix of dining and patio chairs. It also helped that our immediate families include multiple wedding vendors. Jérémie’s dad officiated, John built the arbor, Naomi coordinated, and we were able to cover their photos throughout the day. Not to mention that our mom is an extreme planning master.

Sofia and Jé weren’t discouraged by how their big day was so different from their original plans. They loved how intimate it had become. They loved how they were able to reach even more friends and family by streaming it. And they loved how they didn’t have to stress about driving to various locations. But most of all, they loved how having a small backyard wedding meant that they were able to spend the entire day together.

Sofia and Jé, we’re so happy for you, and we’re grateful that you now have each other unconditionally. Sofia, you were such an incredibly gorgeous bride, and we love that you were able to relax and have your fun moments. We’re so proud of you, and grateful for you. Is it weird that we miss you so much already? Jé, we can’t imagine a better husband for Sofia. We can’t wait to experience more of your goofiness as well and watch how you become an even dearer part of our family. We love you both.

This COVID wedding is particularly special to me (Samantha), as Eden and Sam are good friends from church. In fact, Logan and I were around when Sam spoke about meeting Eden for the first time. We got to see them become friends, spend time together in our small group, and eventually start dating.

Before they even started going out, I asked Logan what he thought of the two of them together; they just seemed to be a good fit for each other. Similar backgrounds and faith stories have given them a beautiful understanding of one another. It’s been a joy to see their relationship grow, including the day they got engaged right before coming over to our place for dinner!

Although their wedding was COVID-sized, there were so many beautiful moments that made it a meaningful, joy-filled celebration. Traditional weddings often go by so quickly because the bride and groom are busy catching up with guests, moving from one activity to the next, and even driving to all their different locations. Eden and Sam, however, got ready in Eden’s childhood home, had their first look on the steps, and were married in the backyard.

“Small” does not mean “less”.

Despite the simple day, Eden and Sam didn’t give up on having gorgeous details to elevate their wedding. Eden found her dress online at the Reformation, her flowers and cake were provided by local vendors Sweet Violets and Wellington Cakes, and even her engagement ring supported Theresa Duong Arts, a small business based in Toronto.

Having a COVID wedding does not mean you have to give up on your dream of having a beautiful day. We like to say that “small” does not mean “less”. And if you’re like Eden and Sam, it can even be more intimate, elegant, and focused on what weddings are really all about.

Eden and Sam: thank you so much for including us in your big day. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to have captured the images your kids and grandkids will one day pour over, asking what it was like to get married during the pandemic of 2020. Your wedding story will be a treasure for your descendants, and it was an honour to be a part of it. Congratulations to you both!!

The guests crowded along the second-floor railing of the reception room.  The entire bridal party clustered together on one end of the head table. Banding together. Determined they wouldn’t fail. Their phones out.

The screen lit up with the next question. “What was Stuart’s earliest memory of Eirwen?”

A) Her Yellow Sweater

B) Her Smile

C) Her Laugh

D) Her Amazing Clarinet Skillzzz

The MC had promised a prize. If anyone—just one out of a 150+ guest list—got a perfect score, Eirwen and Stuart would have to kiss.

The guesses were in and the screen flickered to the answer: Her yellow sweater. 

Kahoot. The quintessential high school game. As two high school teachers—Eirwen of math, Stuart of music—it was the perfect choice. But they hadn’t met as teachers. They hadn’t even met during teacher’s college or university. Their story began on the second day of ninth grade when a mutual friend introduced them and Eirwen wore her yellow sweater.

Eirwen and Stuart were able to take in the day… because they weren’t being rushed

Eirwen and Stuart’s  Holland Marsh Wineries wedding was a unique one for us; probably would have been for any photographer. The average wedding can be crazy and rushed. This wedding was different. Eirwen is a girl after our own hearts. She loves schedules and organization and she planned her beautiful day so well that Eirwen and Stuart had plenty of time for everything. Even eating. And actually spending time with the bridal party. And—believe it or not—with each other. We loved seeing how Eirwen and Stuart were able to take in the day and enjoy it so fully because they weren’t being rushed. The intentional scheduling was one way they cared for one another and how much they love spending time together; their day was about each other more than anything.

Eirwen and Stuart, we absolutely loved spending your wedding day with you! We felt so cared for by your family and friends not only physically (guys, I don’t think we’ve been offered food and drink so much before!), but emotionally. It was so lovely seeing how much your families and friends love you and how much you love them. It revealed the kindness shown to us as true and genuine. We are so encouraged and look forward to seeing you care for each other and the family you’re starting together in the years to come!
