Olivia & Peter's Stunning Kleinburg Village Wedding: Kleinburg Wedding Photographers at the Doctor's House in Kleinburg ON
This Doctor's House Wedding in Kleinburg ON was everything you would expect Kleinburg's Village Wedding to be: beautiful, glamorous and filled with true emotion and heart-warming love.
Peter and Olivia met us at a Wedding show. Peter trusted his instinct, he told us, that he wanted us to shoot his Wedding. We're happy for awesome clients like Peter & Olivia and we are so excited to share their gorgeous Wedding with you that took place at the Doctor's House in Kleinburg ON. If you are thinking about this venue, be like Peter, trust your instinct, it's a gorgeous venue, with amazing staff and wonderful photo opportunities, outdoors and in, with grand and glamorous rooms.
Ok so Peter is a hopeless romantic! Well just check out the gorgeous Giuseppe Zanotti shoes he surprised Olivia with on the Wedding Day. Well there's a story behind those classy Zanotti heels. She wanted them bad but instead Peter suggested she break into the pair she already had, so like a goddess she paraded around their house for two whole weeks, in the shoes she thought she was going to wear for the Wedding. Ha, was she surprised when she tore open that box that contained her 'something blue', her reaction is priceless. And guess what, Olivia strapped those sexy blue heels on right away and never took them off! And I'm loving Olivia's gift to Peter: classy pocket watch from Tissot.
So I have to mention, I've never seen a bouquet like Olivia's, such a stunning and unique floral arrangement, from Mid Valley Gardens Ltd.
The little moments before the I'dos are fun, it's your time with the gals or guys. Of course you can pop some bubbly or whiskey or rye, but Olivia was so excited when the Tim Horton's arrived (with a bit of kick to it of course)! Um, hashtag here: #TrueCanadianWedding
Those who are already married and those couples in love about to get married, just remember that emotions can run high on a Wedding day. Think about it: in one day you're cramming a lot of things into a tight timeline, it can be stressful, it's a build up of emotions. As you are surrounded by your gals and guys, family and friends, you may feel you have to try to keep your emotions intact. I say don't: just be you, just be real, just feel.
Olivia and Peter did just that: they felt, they were real, they let those emotions surface and that's what makes great photos. You can see in the photos the emotions that took hold of them as Olivia walked down the aisle, and Peter seeing her for the first time that day. And check out the emotional moment between Olivia and her mom during speeches. We're glad to be quick to capture these real moments.
We love the quaint and cosy chapel. There are quite a few stunning ceremony photos. We love to have a bit of fun playing with our cameras and lights, when we see some cool opportunities, like capturing silhouette shots of the Wedding party in the chapel.
As it was freezing cold outside, something like in the -30s, Olivia and Peter opted to stay indoors for photos, but we did manage to capture some cool photos outside the chapel. As mentioned earlier, the rooms are grand at the Doctor's House, which makes for some amazing photos.
The party started with the Bride and Groom's first dance. With those stunning windows surrounding the room, it's not a surprise that their first dance was beautiful. The guests joined the happy couple on the dance floor and it was party, party all night long.
Peter's take on Mike:
Mike was great, fit right into our group. Almost felt like another groomsman :) Thanks for the tips on staying calm!
Olivia's take on Cecilia:
Amazing super sweet and fun. She seems to know exactly when something memorable or cute would happen and snapped it. I am super happy how the day of photos turned out!
Their take on us as a team:
It was truly an amazing experience! We knew from the day we met you we had great chemistry and fully trusted your direction and experience. We have and will recommend you over and over. It was pleasant to have a team that helped us stay focused yet knew when to draw back, was encouraging and could lighten the nerves when needed. Most of all, the photos are amazing with a candid feel without looking staged and you work extremely well solo and as a team!
How did you both meet? How did he/she propose?
We met at the bar where Olivia works and started dating almost right away.
I had Olivia receive a whole bunch of boxes from Amazon while I was away on a work trip, which luckily she didn't open, which contained all of the locks and gadgets I required to create an escape room in our house. Only the last lock box was her engagement ring :)
Any tips or advice for future brides and grooms?
Enjoy your day to the fullest! Don't sweat the small stuff, the day flies by faster than you can say "I do"!
Olivia and Peter, thanks for choosing us to document your day. We're happy to have met you and all the beautiful people at your Wedding.
