It has been a weird winter here in Southern Ontario…when we would normally have had tons of snow with the accompanying snow days, storm warnings, road closures, etc., the majority of the winter has felt very spring-like. When I met up with Courtney a couple of weeks ago for our final consult, we joked about how un-wintery her winter wedding would be! She told me about the fur coats she and we laughed since it was about +10 degrees the night she was here! She confessed that while the warmer-than-usual temperatures were a nice change from the typical bitter cold winters we have, she sort of hoped to have at least a bit of snow for the big day!
Fast forward to early last week…the forecast called for sunshine (good!) and +8 (not so good for snow…) on Saturday. Well, as luck would have it, Mother Nature and Old Man Winter decided to team up and cooperate giving Miss Courtney and her hubby-to-be, Trevor a BEAUTIFUL, winter day complete with snow and sunshine! It was fresh, but you couldn’t have asked for a nicer winter day to be outside!
Nicole and I headed out to Courtney’s parents’ house to meet up with the girls as they prepped for the day. Let me just tell you…Courtney and Trevor are a lot of fun and when we arrived at the house that morning, the girls did not let us down! When it could have been a house of stress and nerves, there was nothing but laughing and joking!
We had an absolute blast with Courtney and Trevor and their family and friends! We would like to wish the new Mr and Mrs all the best and safe travels as they honeymoon in Honduras!! (Can I say JEALOUS!!!)
I’m a bit of a gold fish…you know…attracted to shiny things…so you can only imagine how much I LOVED Courtney’s sparkly heels!! They were only the first of THREE pairs of shoes Courtney had for the day! Her dress was absolutely gorgeous and totally “her” and the flowers were a perfect finish to the outfits for the day! You can’t go wrong with crystals and feathers…just sayin…
Courtney, you gorgeous thing you!! You looked amazing darling!!
I love the next photo…at a first glance I’m sure it just looks like a boring photo of a bride pinning her dad’s bout…but LOOK at the look on his face!! If that’s not one proud papa, then I don’t know what is!!! Love!
So after we were done with the girls getting ready, we went over to meet up with Trevor and the boys. After listening to the girls recap the events from the night before, I must say we were just.a.little.bit nervous when we pulled up to the house…there were *ahem* remnants of the previous evening’s festivities on the walkway and the first couple times we knocked…no answer! Yikes! We were seriously considering calling the matron-of-honour to let her know something was up, when suddenly the door opened and we were met by the groom and his boys…fully dressed and ready to rock and roll!! Whew! Crisis averted!
After the ceremony, we headed out to the reception site for some photos. The reception was held at the lovely Craigowan and it is a stunning spot for photos…and in any season apparently! The late-afternoon sun and the sparkly snow were fantastic!!!
One of my absolute favourites of the day…Courtney is looking gorgeous and just look at that adoring groom!
These girls were a riot to hang out with!! And they all look fabulous in their dresses!
Courtney you are a stunner darling!!
I heart this image!!
Courtney was rocking the Thai boots for the snowy pics! Her toes were a little warmer than Trevor’s in his tuxedo shoes!
Look at that golden sunshine…and of course the stunning bride!
Courtney you are a rockstar darling! Haha
Trevor’s family is big on fishing and since Courtney is now an official member of the fam, naturally they should have matching fishing hats! Love it!!
We stepped outside with the bride and groom for a break from the party for a few minutes….I big pink puffy heart this image!! I’m sure it’s not a 100% technically correct photo, but I LOVE it!
Congratulations again guys!!
