The perfect wedding to follow the blog post before it, Shannon is also an old friend - her sister and I grew up together! This couple and their wedding party were all smiles despite the frigid temperatures (I think we may have even saw a few flakes of snow!!) I wish this happy couple many happy years together.... and make sure to drop Jeff Wybo, this handsome groom, a line for all your real estate needs!!!

We were extremely grateful that for their kissing game, Stefanie and Joe accepted donations to our charity Love Never Ends to make them kiss, thank you again!

Sandra + John-Paul
{Bellamere Winery Wedding Photography}

For days leading up to Sandra & John-Pauls wedding day, there was a thunderstorm warning for their whole day! I remember driving to Sandra's parents home and having to pull over on the side of the road for this intense storm to pass. It lasted a whole 5 mins and then the rest of the day was great! Soft overcast light and then it rained again at night, and we got a beautiful shot of the love birds under an umbrella outside of the Belllamere building! Sandra & John-Paul's day was filled with so much love & laughter - everyone was having the time of their life! The reception was filled with so many surprises - from special guests singers to hilarious impromptu speeches! Congrats to this lovely couple, it was a pleasure to capture your day!

Jessica + Chris
{Bellamere Winery Wedding Photography}

What a rainy wedding season we had last year! Bellamere is always a favorite spot of ours, and we have had lots of practice making the best of rainy days on their beautiful property! Jessica and Chris are a great couple who took the rain in stride and we had a wonderful day with them!

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Rustic elegance

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?

Bride: It's hard to pick a favourite memory because everything was amazing, but I really enjoyed the speeches. Hearing all of the nice stories and memories that our friends and family share with us, the aspects of our relationships they value and feeling the support they have for us was very special.

Groom: Seeing Jess for the first time as she walked down the aisle.

Favourite detail: We were really happy with how our décor turned out! The atmosphere at Bellamere is so cozy and the architecture is so beautiful on its own that it doesn’t need much in the way of décor, so the combination of our lighting, linens, floral arrangements and homemade touches really created exactly the look that we wanted.

Advice for future brides & grooms: No matter how busy you get, how hectic things get, or how much fun you are having, take a moment to step back, take a deep breath and really take everything in. Be proud of the hard work you have put in making the day what it is and be happy knowing that all of your closest family and friends are gathered in one room because they love you! And be excited knowing that, once all of the excitement of the big day is over, you get to spend the rest of your life with your best friend! Most importantly (and you will hear this many times throughout your planning, but it’s true), your guests won’t notice if something turns out differently than you planned, so don’t worry if everything doesn’t go exactly according to plan!The day will be amazing regardless. We attribute the success of the day to our incredible vendors! We would recommend that future brides and grooms choose vendors that have a great reputation, rather than those that are inexpensive. They have that great reputation for a reason!

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? We wouldn’t change a thing!

Best surprise of the day:

Bride: When I arrived at Bellamere for the ceremony I had some time to spare. Since I had not seen the reception space, Patti secretly took me to see how everything had come together. This was great because it eased my nerves and it was fun knowing all of our guests were on the other side of the doors and couldn't see me!

Groom: While taking photos outside, Patti brought us a platter of the hors d'ouvres to eat!
