Intimate fall backyard wedding

While shooting a wedding last fall in Georgian Bay (see blog post here) The bride’s brother proposed to his girlfriend the morning after the wedding. Hugh and I were there with the family the next morning and witnessed the emotional reveal as Julia and Bobbie came in to sit down for breakfast. You can imagine our excitement when we were both asked to shoot their intimate wedding. Julia and Bobbie are my ideal couple. This day is my ideal wedding day. There was little tradition, and yet it was one of the most special weddings I have ever witnessed. With just under 50 guests, the couple celebrated their relationship with those closest to them in the home Julia grew up in. Bobbie and his brothers roasted a pig, while Julia got ready with her best friend and mother and the rest of the family got the yard and house ready for the guests to arrive-It was absolute perfection.

Thank you to my wonderful boyfriend, Hugh Whitaker for shooting this wedding alongside me.
