Jen & Noah Wedding at the Kortright Centre for Conservation
June 22, 2022

This wedding was an absolute joy to shoot, and really helped to remind me of the importance of doing what makes you happy on your wedding day. Everything Jen and Noah did was for them, and reflected what they held most dear--even if it didn't follow tradition. They chose Kortright Conservation Center in Vaughan, Ontario, because they have a deep love of nature. The day got started with the behind the scenes and getting ready shots of the bride and groom respectively, while their wedding party enjoyed healthy food from Freshii. Healthy food and living is really important to these two, and they wanted it reflected on their wedding day. Jen had a very particular vision for her wedding dress, and The Fitzroy were really able to bring it to life. With a love of dance, Jen wanted to make sure that her dress gave her plenty of freedom of movement, but also that her vision incorporated a corset, as this was something she was passionate about, and the dress turned out perfect. This is why she needed two!

As the day went on, emotions began to run higher. Once everyone was ready, we moved over to the forest balcony for a first look. Noah got very teary when he turned around and saw his bride for the first time. It struck me how much these two really loved each other, and how much they enjoyed just being together. From there, they wanted to have a small ceremony before the official ceremony with just their close family where they performed the formalities in front of those who were most special to them

The ceremony itself featured a chuppah, which represents the home the married couple will build together. Decorated with eucalyptus centered floral arrangements and featuring kosher wine and candles, the chuppah was beautiful, and really brought home just how important their jewish heritage was to them on this special day. 

Following the ceremony, we moved to the reception and took some more portraits in the woods. A pro tip for photographing big groups of people for prints is to give yourself more space than you think you need. When making prints of photos, typically they will need to cut off quite a bit around the edges, so it’s best to get really far back so as to include everyone in the prints.

Following these portraits, we had an amazing sunset session in the woods with some amazing photos. These pictures are some of my favourite from the whole day, and were really made possible thanks to Paula from The Memory Vine expertly scheduling the whole wedding to perfection. Overall, Jen and Noah were an absolute joy to work with, and really helped me to understand the importance of making your wedding day your own, and incorporating things which will make you happy and celebrate what you think is most important.
