Maegan & Scott’s wedding is still one of my favourites even though it was a few years ago- September 19th, 2015, and I realize that’s a few years ago now but I STILL adore everything about their wedding at the Arboretum, in Guelph, ON. The couple went to same high school as me so we grew up along side each other. After they started dating for a few years I was lucky enough to be contacted as they wanted me to photograph their wedding!

The Arboretum is great as it has lush green ivy along with so many gorgeous flowers and landscaping everywhere. They must have recently done renovations to the outside as the entire structure was so modern with stone walls, barn board doors, and a small pond which was amazing to play with! One of my preferred shots of the bridal party was taken there-all mirrored in the water like glass.  Same with the bridesmaid photo as well, I walked above the path that leads from the Arboretum and photographed from above, and the contrast of the nature and urban is one of my favourite all time combos!

Maegan got ready at a hotel close by and there were so many cute details to snap: Her vintage lace overlay dress, to the funny mix of shoes, (the dress shoes and Birkenstocks!)  I liked what her bridesmaids were wearing as well as they had a deep grey dresses with the contrasting yellow sunflowers. ♥ 

Scott got ready at their home in Guelph so we got a lot of great photos of them drinking and getting ready. The couple had a “How I Met Your Mother” theme as well, as they had a “Ring Bear”, “Suit up” and “Legen-dary” cufflinks, such a unique idea!

After they both got ready they had their ceremony outdoors in the middle of the garden, I got a great shot of Maegan and her father walking her down the aisle-such a great moment. The whole ceremony was super small and intimate, and also funny too as one of the kid’s were carrying the ring bear and was making grumpy faces. 🙂 After the ceremony we went to the reception to snap some more photos. It was inside the main building which was full of dancing and good times. Their first dance was very sweet and full of emotion.
