Uxbridge Wedding Photographer - Summer Weddings of 2021! (and pretty much the rest of the year too!)

This post started as a piece specifically about the first 2021 wedding I did in July, but I ended up being so busy with other weddings and grad sessions and then family sessions and more weddings, that I totally slacked on finishing it. So now that I'm finally getting around to writing this, I guess it will incorporate all the weddings I've done for the 2021 wedding season! If you love love, or are planning a wedding, or are just interested, follow along!

Rebecca and Wil's July Wedding

I first met Rebecca and Wil last summer, when I took their engagement photos. At that time they were still relatively new into their relationship, but their connection was so strong that they bloomed into a full on love story, provinces apart. Wil was a member of the RCMP and worked in Alberta, Rebecca was here in Toronto just finishing up her nursing degree.

I overheard a conversation Rebecca had with her aunt. Her aunt said that during their worship song she had connected with Jesus who had shown her raining down love. At the time she thought it was just a representation, but as the sky opened, it meant so much more. Whether you're religious or not, I feel like that is such a special symbolic moment.

They finished off the evening back at Rebecca's parents house with the most gorgeous dinner in the dressed up garage, which you would never know was a garage, and festivities in her backyard.

Kelsey and Colin's Barn Wedding

I was brought onto Kelsey and Colin's July nuptials by a friend of mine from university, Kelsey Bowles. The couple live up in Chelsey ON, near Owen Sound, and had the most beautiful wedding inside the bride's aunt's wedding barn. Full of twinkly lights, the rustic venue was intimate and co
