I am doing a 2 part series on Melissa and Mathew’s wedding. There are so many images you need to see as we shot at several different locations around Collingwood on their beautiful wedding day. The images below are from the pre-ceremony to pre-reception. Part 2 will be from their reception at The Georgian Bay Club.
Happy Couple: Melissa and Mathew
Anniversary Date for Mathew to remember: Saturday May 24, 2008
Wedding Location: Collingwood, Ontario
THE dress. Melissa got ready at The Westin Trillium House at Blue Mountain in Collingwood.
THE shoes. Melissa is a smart girl - comfort!
Here is Matt when I arrived at Trinity United Church in Collingwood. A very happy groom!
No Photoshop effects here and no you are not seeing double. The ringbearers are twins.
The receiving line after the ceremony allowed for some fun photos of everyone. This is one of my favourites of Mathew.
LOVED Melissa’s bouquet!
The little flowergirl.
The old train station in Collingwood is an excellent location for family photos and bridal party photos.
I don’t think Melissa could have selected and worn a dress that was anymore suited for her. It looked SO FANTASTIC!
And Matt looked very dapper in his suit and paisley tie.
I couldn’t decide between black/white or colour - I love both.
These were taken on family waterfront property. LOVE long grass!
Just down the road from The Georgian Bay Club was this AWESOME apple orchard. We stopped here for a few photos as well.
I have to say this is one of my favourite photos from the day.
This photo was taken in the women’s locker room at The Georgian Bay Club. This is one of my fav photos of Melissa and I love how the image really accentuates her awesome dress!
Stay tuned for “part 2″ from their wedding reception.
I love when the couples I work with so graciously send me a beautiful testimonial that I can share with all of you. Here is what Katie and Pat had to say about their wedding photos:
“Wow!!! Our At-Home Wedding Reception photos are absolutely amazing. What can we say but thank you so very much for all of your hard work. When we first spoke I mentioned I wanted the photos to have an artistic and photo-journalistic look, not to be posed. I see the end result and you captured the day the way I envisioned it. You obtained so many candid moments during our reception and took the pressure off of me to ensure that our guest photos were taken. The pictures of the kids attending were so cute. It is amazing how you captured the beauty of my home town after only being their less than a day. Your creativity and eye for beauty shows in all our photos. Our one of a kind photo album looks beautiful. I can look at our album over and over again. These are the memories you captured that we can treasure forever. Our sincere thanks!”

I jumped for joy when Katie and Pat’s wedding album arrived from one of my favourite album suppliers located in British Columbia. I was blown away with how amazing it looked! The print quality was absolutely superb. I am so happy Katie and Pat will have this heirloom for the rest of their lives.
A 10×8 Chocolate Brown Leather Digital Flush Mount Album WITH a too cute Chocolate Brown Leather Box to match!
How cute is this box?
The fabulous album inside the box.
Nice thick pages printed on actual photographic paper mounted flush to each edge of the page.
On a side note, these albums are available in some pretty delicious colours - such as pink and purple!
Despite the fact it rained like cats and dogs for Kearin and Brian’s entire wedding day (until we wrapped up the bridal party photos for the reception to begin - then it stopped raining and the sun came out), they still had a beautiful wedding!
Who: Kearin and Brian
What: Their Wedding Day.
When: Saturday May 3, 2008
Where: Talisman Mountain Resort, Kimberley ON
Here is a snippet from their day:
Now it actually stopped raining for a few minutes at Brian’s cottage - but just a few minutes.
The wine cellar in Talisman was awesome for photos!
