Late Summer Wedding at Willow Springs Winery | J & J
I love meeting couples that have a love story that began as high school sweethearts! There is something so special about a love that has lasted and gown with a couple from young love to forever love. When I first sat down with Amy and Charli, to discuss our services, I couldn’t help but notice how Charli’s eyes never left her face, lighting up every time she smiled. He mentioned something like, “She can have whatever she wants, and I’ll just pay for it!” – Take notes, future husband, I want someone just like that! Haha!
Their wedding was romantic, and I am not talking about the flowers and details, but the energy they brought to the day. It was unexpectedly cold, and Charli wrapped Amy in his coat between each photo, rubbing her hands to keep her warm. He was so concerned for her comfort that the images we captured were naturally infused with the romance of his love for her. These are the moments I love most about photographing weddings: feeling the love between their souls even though I might not know them well.
Their venue, the Cooper Creek Golf Club, was perfect for their classicly elegant style. The grounds of the club are lush with mature trees and beautiful gardens. If you are looking for a venue that is close to Toronto but away from the traffic of the city, then this one should move to the top of your list!
I have several moments from their day that moved me, so it was not an easy task to narrow them down for sharing with all of you! This one was probably my most favorite photo of the groom! Charli was so nervous waiting at the ceremony site for his bride to arrive, but even nerves couldn’t wipe the enormous smile off his face.
The rules said the golf cart was off limits but thanks to luck and few kind words we were able to use it to capture a few images!
This is such a crucial moment to me as a photographer; the placing of rings on each other fingers. The meaning of the endless circle and love without end means so much more than just a symbol or marriage. It is a promise of partnership forever.
I love when we can steal away from the busyness of the day to let my couples take a few moments to enjoy being married!
I had many more favorites, from the delicate pink flowers that decorated the reception, to the joyful dancing they all shared. I invite you to take a peek to see more of their day by following this link to a slideshow of highlights from Amy & Charli’s perfect wedding day!
