Well – this was the first wedding in a long time that I truly thought I would not be able to make photo magic happen. The roads were closed from a crazy winter blizzard & I was pretty sure that I was going to be stuck in the ditch multiple times as I punched through huge snow drifts on my drive to the brides country home near Freelton. And that was just me… the bride, groom, wedding party, families, all the other wedding vendors had to cope with the same blizzard conditions, on a route that included stops in Cambridge, Oakville, Burlington & Hamilton. I really believed that this wedding day was in jeopardy. However, it is amazing what people can do when their heart is set on it, and as always – the setbacks seem to make everything so much more wonderful when it all fell perfectly into place.
I hope you enjoy this couple’s particularly expressive photos, and note that the outdoor photos were minus 20 degrees, with a windchill of minus 40 billion. Yes – car battery killing weather. And yet this couple was all smiles all day long, gorgeous, happy, wonderful people<3.

Jennifer and Kevin had planned the perfect January wedding, with beautiful winter decorations and details, in Toronto’s fantastic Old Mill and Spa. The only thing they did not plan for? The little detail that winter never did come this year… and dreams of all those pretty snow-scapes had to be re-imagined.
As it turns out, we got hundreds of beautiful photos despite the lack of snow, and the Old Mill certainly gave us lots to work with. What a gorgeous venue! And I am sure the Hawaiian honeymoon made up for any snow related disappointments:)
Just goes to show, you can never count on the weather to co-operate, even in the dead of winter!
A beautiful day, a beautiful couple, congrats to Dr & Mrs M!
For all you super cool winter brides, here is a fun little snapshot of Leslie & Mike’s frosty wedding… brought to you courtesy of Anne Edgar Photography.
The festivities began at Leslie’s parents home – the perfect place for a photographer to capture all of the fun, chaos & anticipation of a girl on her way to walk down the aisle. Detail shots, pix of the bride dressing, photo ops with bridesmaids. Fairly standard stuff.
Except that Leslie & Mike were thinking a bit more outside the box for their fab winter wedding… and had something more interesting in mind for their wedding party. Instead of heading straight for the venue, the bride & girls headed to Wildcraft, where they met up with the groom & groomsmen for some beverages, gourmet burgers, & belly laughs.
As the sun was setting, we headed thru the snow storm to beautiful Hauser Hall for some aisle walking & ring trading. Champagne toasts, laughter, and naturally – photos in the snow were mandatory. Dinner & dancing, love & laughter wrapped up a perfect snowy winter day.
Congrats Leslie & Mike!
btw – the officiant? that’s my friend Martti from Kettle Creek Weddings!
