Intimate Fall Wedding in Kleinburg
I’m so excited to share this Kortright Centre wedding with you! This was my first time photographing a wedding at the Kortright Centre for Conservation, and boy was it a good time to photograph there. I did not expect the trees to be in such beautiful colours but when I arrived at the visitor centre and saw the ceremony site (they call it The Cathedral of Trees), I was actually in awe. Trees with different shades of yellow and orange surrounded you, and when the wind blew, a few fell. On top of that, it was a sunny day! It felt quite magical.
The wedding itself was a true labour of love: Caroline made all the table decor items including the jars with gold glitter, and she hand-dyed the dinner menu cards. She also hand-knotted the beautiful macrame that adorned the birch branches as the ceremony backdrop. Her brother, bridesmaids and friends helped set up the reception tables, and the ceremony decor, while Henry and the groomsmen brought Caroline’s vision of an outdoor entrance to life.
I also love the way Caroline and Henry did their First Look – they didn’t see each other at first while Henry passed a card to Caroline for her to read before they both turned around. As someone who is better at written communication (it gives me time to think about what I want to say, instead of blurting out whatever is on my mind), I definitely resonated with this twist on the First Look.
Thank you Caroline and Henry, for having me join in this intimate celebration of your love and marriage. It was a pleasure to document the story of this special day for you!
