About the Bride and Groom
Katie & Craig chose to hire me to be their professional wedding photographer after we met for a consultation last January. They chose to have their wedding on January 13th of this year, because it is also the anniversary of when the two first started dating, four years ago. Craig proposed to Katie in the candlelight at their home, after the two met a few years before at Craig's grandparents' home.
About the Wedding
Believe it or not, this wedding almost didn't happen. The reason for that is because Craig was very sick and in the hospital three times within the week leading up to their wedding. Katie had e-mailed me just a couple of days before the wedding to let me know that Craig was released from the hospital, and that he was resting to recover as best as possible so that he would be okay in time for the wedding.
The venue that they chose for their wedding was the Ajax Convention Centre. It is classy and elegant, and it matched their theme nicely. For the wedding theme, they wanted something breath-taking and elegant. It definitely looked like a wedding straight out of a fairy tale! The beautiful décor and florals were by Princess Weddings. The bouquets and centrepieces were created using all-white flowers.

More Questions That I Asked the Bride
How was the planning process? Did you encounter any roadblocks along the way?
Planning was a breeze; ensuring the groom wasn’t in hospital on the wedding day was much trickier!
What is one thing about your wedding that you will always remember?
Craig crying as I walked up the aisle.
Are there any special décor, jewellery, or other items that you would like to tell us about?
I had my great, great, great grandmother's engagement ring from 1888 pinned to the inside of my gown.
Congratulations on your wedding, Katie and Craig! I am so grateful that you trusted me to be your wedding photographer and I wish you both a happy marriage, and all the love that comes with that.
This beautiful rustic wedding took place at Century Barn in Cavan, Ontario. The rain held off for the outdoor ceremony, which took place beside the old barn. This venue was absolutely stunning!
