William + Rebecca

  There are cute couples, and there are sweet ones too but sometimes in your life, you come across couples that transcend cuteness and land squarely in the realm of “otherworldly”. That’s the perfect description of William and Rebecca.

Brendan contacted me with his plan to propose to his girlfriend Megan before the holidays started and I literally couldn’t wait for the day to arrive.

Tarek + Hollie

Love. Kindness. Family. That’s all I could think of when I was at Tarek and Hollie’s fall wedding, they chose to have it on her Grandfather’s land and it couldn’t have been more perfect. I loved this wedding and was so honoured to be a part of it. Special thanks to Shannon Cronin for flying […]
