Canadian Museum of Nature Winter Wedding: Jennifer + Steve

Museum-of-Nature-Winter-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyJenn + Steve’s wedding day started off with clear weather, then moved into freezing rain/slush, and ended up having a mini-blizzard right in the middle of it! In fact, at one point in the day, the snowflakes were so dense and large that they looked completely fake (like they were made of foam and a wind machine)! Jenn wanted snow on her wedding day and boy-oh-boy did she get it! This wonderfully sweet couple definitely made the most of it during their portrait portion of the day! Getting completely drenched by the snow was definitely worth the shots we got out in that less than pleasant weather.⁠⠀

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.

Strathmere Inn & Lonestar Ranch Wedding: Jolani + Josh

Strathmere-Inn-Lonestar-Ranch-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographySo I really like my birthday – like really like it. I am actually the type of person to give myself not only a birthday week, but a birthday month! But historically, I have never been able to celebrate my birthday on the actual day. When I was in university, exams always ruined the birthday spirit and all the celebrations would be postponed until after everyone had suffered through all their tests. Then when I was working as an engineer, the end of March was one of the absolute busiest times of the year and everything would once again get pushed a week or so. So when I starting working for just myself, I figured I would be able to set the day aside for celebrations – but that only works if you don’t book anything on the date.

But I didn’t mind sharing the date with Jolani + Josh for even a second! These two are so kind and wonderful that I had no problems postponing my birthday celebrations a little bit to be able to capture their wedding day! And as an added bonus, these amazing people took time out of their special day to highlight my birthday by gifting us a delicious birthday cake – how cool is that?!
