Kevin and Erin’s Rustic Fall Wedding in Uxbridge
It’s been a beautiful fall here in Ontario and recently we had a privilege of shooting a rustic fall wedding with some of the most beautiful views in Ontario. Not only was the location stunning, the story of this couple is also amazing. Who likes a good love story? We sure do, and do we have a good one for you. Erin and Kevin have know each other there entire lives as their parents were friends before they were born, in fact, it was Kevin’s parents that had set Erin’s parents up! So this amazing wedding day was a long time in the making, and what a day it was. After some prep photos of Kevin in his stunning blue tailored suit from *Caruso, we took the guys outside to enjoy the weather.
After a good laugh, (and some photos of course), we headed off to meet with Erin. We met up with the ladies at the Homewood Suites Inn. A beautiful hotel only minutes away in Ajax. Its always a treat to see some familiar, smiling faces amidst the bridal party, it really makes us feel that we are among friends. These girls had some seriously awesome energy and we spent a fun hour or so getting all the shots we needed. Erin looked stunning in her Mori Lee wedding dress and Badgley Mishka shoes. Erin’s beautiful bouquet had a very personal touch added. Erin’s late father’s watch and her late grandfather’s tie adorned the stems. It was a touching, personal tribute.
It was then off to the beautiful Skyloft Ski Resort in Uxbridge where the outdoor wedding ceremony and reception were to be held. The vast blue skies and epic panorama set quite a stunning stage for their outdoor ceremony overlooking the stunning vista.
We could not have asked for more perfect weather. With fires roaring and candles lit, exposed wood beams with twinkling lights The Skyloft Ski Resort had a perfect barn wedding feel. This classic and rustic theme of the reception couldn’t have suited the venue any better. It was a perfect setting for this rustic fall wedding feel. An amazing meal and some heartfelt speeches led up to Kevin and Erin’s final speech. Wow. This is where their story really touched us. Sadly, Erin never had a chance to meet her father as he passed away before she was born. But incredibly, due to their parents being friends, Erin’s father had met Kevin as a young boy. The boy very boy who years later, would become his daughters husband and soulmate. The bond between the families in this room was overwhelming strong. To be envied in fact.
We were so proud and honoured to be welcomed in to such an amazing day in their lives. Thank you Erin and Kevin for sharing your day with us.
