Jackie and Lee met while she went down to Bermuda for a teaching position. Both being teachers, they hit off, and have taken turns travelling back and forth to visit each other as often as possible ever since. Lee came up here last winter during the ice storm, and this year he got to experience a bit of our freezing cold February – quite the introduction to Ontario! We all kept an eye on the weather forecast, trying to pick a day that wasn’t going to be minus one million, but with the constant changes, we just decided to go for it!

Jackie has been a competition skater for as long as I’ve known her (she’s the same age as my “little” brother), so she knew she wanted to get out her skates during their winter engagement session. My fingers and toes may have numbed and thawed numerous times during this session, but it was totally worth it! We even had a deer sneak into a couple photos as well.

I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in August at Stonewall Estates!

We watched the rain fall with anticipation as Stephanie’s mom and bridesmaids helped her into her gorgeous gown. Sure, they say it’s good luck if it rains on your wedding day, but who wouldn’t take a gorgeous sunny day over a rainy one? I always say it can rain all it wants while we’re indoors, as long as Mother Nature gets it out of her system in time for the outdoor photos!

And magically, it all worked out, as it often seems to. After the church ceremony we went to a little park around the corner that I had not been to before. I totally fell in love with the gorgeous light on this one pathway – it was perfect! The leaves were just starting to change at this point, and the late afternoon sunlight started poking through the clouds. Oh, how I’d love to be back in that time right now! We had a such a beautiful fall season this year.

It’s clear that these two have an amazing group of tight-knit friends and family surrounding them. I think Stephanie had more bridal showers than any bride in history! Her brothers set the standard pretty high in the awesome sibling category, stopping in to the house before the ceremony to make sure everything was good and to grab a quick photo with the bride, running back to the limo to grab flats for the bride’s poor feet when she couldn’t walk anymore, and then surprising her with a Photo Booth during the reception! There were plenty of heartfelt speeches, lots of friends and relatives that travelled from far distances to be there, and the dance floor was PUMPIN’ when we left, and I’m guessing the party continued all night long.

Thanks for letting me and Monica join in the fun, we had a wonderful time documenting your beautiful day.
