Temple’s Sugar Bush Wedding: Megan + Brendan

Temple's-Sugar-Bush-Country-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyIf you watch our social media feeds and/or read our blog regularly than you will have probably noticed that we photograph a lot of weddings at Temple’s Sugar Bush. We are there 6 or 7 times a year and I honestly love that we visit this wonderful venue (and all of the truly amazing staff) so often. But the time always comes each year where we are photographing our last wedding there and although this year that was Megan + Brendan’s wedding day. And although we are said that we won’t be shooting on their grounds until next year, Megan + Brendan were such a fantastic way to end off our 2019 Temple’s weddings.

Temple’s Sugar Bush Wedding: Leandra + Lucas

Temples-Country-Weddings-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyFor us, the day we chose to get married was actually based on availability of a few of our preferred vendors and not for the date itself.

Following their engagement session and wedding I was so, so happy to be able to help this amazing couple announce their pregnancy. So with all of that, being able to capture this adorable little girl’s cake smash was pretty darn awesome.

Clyde Hall B&B & Temple’s Sugar Bush Wedding: Jennifer + Philippe

Temples-Sugar-Bush-Clyde-Hall-BB-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyMother Nature has been pretty kind to me all year so far, more or less, and this was definitely true during Jennifer + Phil’s wedding day as the forecast started off pretty darn gloomy but we ended up having some really great weather! We were even graced by a couple deer that passed by us during the Bride + Groom portraits.

Almonte Backyard Wedding: Mariah + Benjamin

Almonte-Agriculture-Hall-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyMariah + Benjamin’s day was pretty much a perfect day! From their stunning backyard ceremony to the incredibly heartwarming (and tear-jerking) moments during their reception, I honestly can’t think of a single thing that could possibly need changing, and that takes into consideration the fact that the bride took a wee tumble down a hill during family portraits (luckily she was neither hurt nor was her dress dirtied).
