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).

Almonte Wedding: Tarah + Derek

Almonte-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyIt seems so fitting that it is raining as I write this blog post as that was like an unofficial extra theme of Tarah + Derek’s wedding day. It was raining when we arrived at prep and it poured pretty much the rest of the day. But honestly, I don’t think anyone really cared. I mean, at the end of the day these two wonderful people were married and everyone had a great time – and really, isn’t that what really matters?!

Stanley’s Olde Maple Lane Farm Wedding: Krystal + Luke

Stanleys-Olde-Maple-Lane-Farm-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-Photography-ceremony-stone-steps-guestsWe are so lucky to photograph so many beautiful wedding days. In fact, there are so many lovely days that picking highlights from our season can be tricky, but I just know that images from Krystal +Luke’s day will be included in my favourites for 2017!!

The light was perfect, the grounds of Stanley’s Olde Maple Lane Farm (and both prep locations too!) were wonderful and their entire wedding party were genuine knockouts! And Krystal in that dress, well there simply aren’t words for how amazing she looked, but I think flawless is a pretty good start.

Stanley’s Olde Maple Lane Farm Wedding: Krystal + Luke, Sneak Peek

Stanleys-Olde-Maple-Lane-Farm-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyFive years ago Dave and I got married, which means that around 6 years ago we were planning our big day. And like most couples, we started with our wedding venue. We knew the date we wanted (as September 29 happens to be exactly 6 months after my birthday resulting in me having the joke of getting a present every six months), but at the time we had no clue where to look for venues that would fit our personalities and the wedding we were envisioning. Eventually we stumbled across Stanley’s and we absolutely loved the atmosphere of the place with all the farm animals and of course the beautiful trees. Unfortunately we weren’t able to book there for our date, but five years and a day later we found ourselves at that very venue capturing the absolute fantastic wedding day of Krystal + Luke.
