Perfect July Church and Farm Wedding in Keene, Ontario – Rachel & Ian

Early July I made the trek to Keene, a beautiful rural town south east of Peterborough for the wedding (ceremony and reception) of Rachel & Ian. Rachel and Ian live just outside the town of Keene and are very active in the farming lifestyle.  The elements of a farmers wedding were included in their day in many of the small (and sometimes large) details.  The fellows boutonnieres, the inclusion of the farms windmill, the wheat field and their vehicles were all fun personal elements they included in their day (and in much of the photography).

From the comical moment of the stray cat walking into the church during their ceremony, to the rock’n reception with a fun hula-hoop game to get Rachel & Ian to kiss, awesome meal and great music by Homemade Jam, the entire day had a great atmosphere of being laid back and having fun.

Here is a brief summary of their perfect July wedding.  Enjoy!

Beautiful Stoney Lake Wedding – Viamede Resort – Alyse & Ken

Fun. That is how I would sum up the June wedding of Alyse and Ken. They are a fun, easy going couple with a great young son (Avery) that wanted nothing more than to have an enjoyable day with their family and friends on the shores of Stoney Lake at the popular Viamede Resort.

My time started with Ken, his son, Best-man and father at his parents cottage in the Burleigh Falls area. After the fellows were done, I quickly drove to Viamede and spent an hour with Alyse and her Maid-of-Honor in the newly renovated Honeymoon Suite. After a couple small hiccups with Alyse’s dress were dealt with, Alyse was looking beautiful and set for her wedding day. A short walk from the honeymoon suite took us to the awesome waterfront ceremony location that is commonly used at Viamede. Even with including the unique element of a dove release, their wedding ceremony went off without a hitch. After the ceremony we did a quick group photo of everyone at their wedding (there is a great spot to do this next to the popular ceremony location), we quickly had fun getting the family formals done and went straight into the wedding party and bride & groom photos. With the ease of walking around Viamede, we were at their reception for the exact time we needed to be. This was immediately followed by a very well done meal. I’d like to thank Alyse and Ken for including me in the fantastic meal they had ordered. After the meal some heart felt and humorous speeches were delivered and then there was a quick transition into the dancing. A great end to a great day.

Here are just a few of my favorites from their day.

Deerhurst Resort & Grandview Golf Club Wedding – Robyn & Ryan in Huntsville

Excellent.  That is my first response when asked about the recent wedding of Robyn and Ryan.   It all began where they prepared for the day at the beautiful Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville which led to their intimate ceremony and tremendous reception which both took place at the impressive Grandview Golf ClubTo go along with it, there was an amazing meal and a great kid-friendly atmosphere.   Truly an excellent day.  I believe the images summarize the fun everyone had at their wedding.

It was a good thing that the location was so beautiful because the weather on their wedding day was hit-and-miss. One minute it would rain, the next the sun would peak out and then the next it would rain again. Regardless, what helped to contribute to their excellent images was that Robyn and Ryan didn’t care about the rain and were quite happy to do what was needed to get beautiful shots. As you can see, even though there were umbrellas in the odd image, it did not take away from the fun and intimacy they shared on their wedding day. In fact, just before I wrapped up my day, you can see from the last couple of images that our little shoot outside under the trees in the dark resulted in some unique images thanks to the rain! Lighting Robyn and Ryan from the back really highlighted the raindrops in a stunning way!

From the beautiful room at Deerhurst Resort where Robyn got ready, the fantastic venue of Grandview Golf Club for both ceremony and reception, their great meal, a great candy bar, a very kid friendly atmosphere and rock’n music courtesy of Blake (By Request Entertainment), this really was a great Muskoka wedding!

A big thanks to Robyn and Ryan for selecting Woodhouse Photography to be their private professional photography service for their big day.
