This spring we were thrilled to be the photographers on an editorial piece for one of our favorite wedding magazines Lavish Dulhan. The shoot took place at Royal Ambassador on an extremely windy day. Luca came along to assist us, and I don’t know how we would have gotten half the shots without him making sure our gear didn’t blow away! Regardless, we worked alongside some of Toronto’s best and came out with some lovely images for the editorial. We are very happy to share with you some of our favorite shots from the day, and the magazine article below. The magazine is available at Chapters now, so go get your copy!

Thank you to Rohit from Lavish Dulhan for being so wonderful to work with and for including us in the issue of Lavish Dulhan Magazine. Thank you to Luca for all your help that day.

Cheers

Erika & Ryan

Last month we photographed Melissa & David’s Muskoka wedding at Windermere House. You might remember these two from their Royal Ontario Museum engagement session in Toronto from earlier this year. This wedding was all class, with a soft color palette and Melissa’s gorgeous Romona Keveza Dress it was the perfect addition to the lovely Lake Rosseau backdrop. Melissa & David were married on the back lawn under a floral arch created by our good friends at Seasons in the Country, florists from Bracebridge, Ontario. The atmosphere was light and relaxing during cocktail hour which was held on the back porch of Windermere House. Guests played lawn games like bocci ball, and shuffle board and  enjoyed hors d’oeuvre created by the famously talented Oliver & Bonacini kitchen. After dinner we opened up a Photo Booth on the patio and guests clamoured to take photos. It was an absolutely lovely day, and a fun night.

Congratulations to Melissa & David! Thank you for choosing us to capture your day. Please be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the Wedding Vendors Dream Team who helped make this Muskoka wedding come together.

Cheers

Lindsay & Nick’s romantic wedding was held at the Beaumaris Yacht Club in Muskoka. They chose classic Muskoka themes for their wedding, from the blue blazers on the groomsmen to handmade in Muskoka moccasin shoes, worn by not only the bride and bridesmaid but the father of the bride too! Having the Rowell Photography team document a wedding at The Beaumaris Yacht Club was a real treat, the yacht club is steeped in so much history, opening its doors in the early days of 1912. The brides family has been spending summers at Beaumaris for over 100 years, and now Nick and Lindsay have their own special memories at the club. Nick and Lindsay’s wedding day preparations began at their cottages, and both bridal parties were ferried in four different classic wooden boats to the ceremony. These boats were gorgeous, and  remind me of the Greavette Boat Works and Chris Craft boats I have fallen in love with at the museums and boat shows in Port Carling and Gravenhurst.

The Beaumaris Yacht Club has a beautiful property facing west on the waters edge of Lake Muskoka, with amazing green docks trimmed in white edges. It is perfect for watching sunsets, and Nick and Lindsay did just that! They also ushered over 100 people on to the rocky cliff edges for a giant group photo!

This beautiful wedding day was photographed by the amazingly talented Luca and Amelia. We are beyond thrilled with their journalistic approach to the wedding. They captured the essence of Muskoka, a love story, and so many wonderful emotional moments.Working as a team they were able to show both sides of the story and found the fleeting moments that will be both timeless and cherished to look back upon.

Thank you Luca & Amelia for sharing your talent with all of us. Thank you to Lindsay and Nick for choosing our team to photograph your Beaumaris Yacht Club wedding.

Cheers & Congratulations!

Ryan & Erika

This was by far, one of our most favorite weddings of 2013. Kris & Rebecca’s wedding was a weekend long affair that took place at the one and only Windermere House in Muskoka. They chose a bold, warm and vibrant palette of colors to contrast the cool blue lake and the white exterior of the venue. They were married on the back lawn of Windermere House over looking Lake Rosseau. Once the ceremony was over, guests were ushered down to the docks to board the Wenonah 2 steam ship. Cocktail hour was actually a boat tour! It was the perfect day and guests danced and enjoyed drinks and hors d’oeuvres on the ships decks.
We love it when couples not only throw a fantastic party for their friends and family, but also want to create an experience that is unforgettable for them. Renting a steamship is not unusual, especially in Muskoka. The Muskoka Fleet of steamships offers a variety of special event services to the public. Not only did Kris & Rebecca create a memorable cocktail reception, but their reception was a blend of amazing music, homemade decor, and personal touches. One of the most unique details they added to their wedding celebration was a cheese table instead of a cake. It was classy, and according to friends of the bride and groom, this was them to a tee. No one knows cheeses like these two lovers do.

There are so many simple ways that you can add a little personal flavour to your wedding to really make it your own. Use social media sites like Pinterest as inspiration and not as a blueprint for your wedding. The more personality you infuse into your wedding day, the more memorable it will be for you and your guests. Kris & Rebecca’s Muskoka wedding is a perfect example of that.

Congratulations to Kris & Rebecca! Thank you for choosing us to photograph your incredibly lovely windermere house wedding.

Cheers

On a rainy day in October, Alyshia & Martin were married. Over looking the gorgeous Lake Rosseau, nearly 200 of their closest friends and family joined them for a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony at J.W. Marriott’s The Rosseau in Minett, Ontario, Canada.  If you have frequented this blog in the past week you will most likely have seen Alyshia & Martin’s beach engagement session. These two are not afraid of a little water. In fact, just as they always had planned to do, even in the rain, Alyshia met Martin, who was waiting for her on the dock to do their first look.

We absolutely love the reception decor and floral by Mode Function, the gradient of flower petals on the head table really made this wedding unique. We are so excited to share with you images from this Muskoka wedding at The Rosseau. Congratulations Martin & Alyshia!

Cheers

We are so excited to show off this Trillium Resort Muskoka winter wedding we photographed earlier this year. This Muskoka wedding had a real Canadiana theme. Jon & Jill were married inside the dining room of the Farmhouse Lounge, which is an adorable little red house on Lake Devine. On their wedding day it was covered in a thick white coat of snow, and they even had ice sculptures at the entrances to the building. Inside, the entire building is decorated with snowshoes, skies, and even a giant moose head. Jill & Jon said their vows in front of a giant window that looked out at the snowy lake. Then they had dinner at a sweetheart table for two in front of a glowing fireplace. Trillium Resort was oh so romantic that night.

Jill & Jon were real troopers, they opted for a first look and they did it outside on the frozen Devine Lake. Their photos were all taken on the Trillium resort property, and we all walked around  for over an hour taking photos along the pathways, and on the homemade ice rink. Late in the night we all came back outdoors in even more freezing temperatures for photos! Can you say dream client ? icon smile Trillium Resort Muskoka   Winter Wedding We love it when couples are excited about photography, it makes the entire process so fun, and just adds to the overall excitement of the day. Jill & Jon are no strangers to the cold, they work and live a lot further north than Muskoka. So our freezing cold weather must have been a vacation for these winter pro’s. It was an absolute pleasure to spend this gorgeous day with Jon & Jill. Congratulations to you both! Thanks for braving the cold for photos, I promise they were so worth it!

Thank you for choosing us to photograph your wedding day.

Cheers

Erika & Ryan

Searching for photographers who could capture our love of winter ended when we met Erika and Ryan. From the outset we could tell they were excited about the opportunity to work with us and photograph a winter wedding. They visited our venue before the wedding and arrived early to scout out beautiful locations around the site. On our wedding day, they cleared paths and even trekked through snow banks with us! They captured stunning photos both inside and outdoors and we are thrilled with the results of their efforts. Thank you for being so enthusiastic about our winter wedding!Jill & Jon

When Ryan and I got married on May 25th 2012, we told ourselves that we wouldn’t be those people who left printing their photos to a “later date” or “when we have time” which is really just code for NEVER! So as soon as we were home from our honeymoon we got to work, spending ever spare second (in the middle of our busy wedding season) on our own wedding albums, prints for our family and friends. Within just 3 short months we had our albums in our hands and a whole bunch of prints on a variety of papers and canvas to display in our home. We look at our wedding albums all the time, and the prints that decorate our house are a constant reminder of that amazing moment in our lives. But I was always so worried that I would spill something on my wedding album just lying out on the table. Ryan knows how clumsy i am when it comes to anything liquid in a cup or bowl, and the clumsiness intensifies as the colour intensifies (red wine, coffee, borscht) you name it, if it has a dark colour its going to end up on the table or the couch. So I told Ryan that I needed a box to save our albums. Even though they are waterproof, with a girl like me hanging around, there is no hope for these albums.  So we looked into box companies in North America, and no one was making a finished box big enough for a wedding album of 10×10 inch size or larger. Most album boxes were scrap wood or balsa wood with rough edges that would give you a sliver! In true Ryan fashion, he decided to take matters into his own hands.

In the 10 years that we have been together, Ryan has made the following items: 2 trade show booths, my home library shelving, turned a small closet in our hallway into a little bench where we can sit to put shoes on, an electric guitar fully hand carved, sewn all our custom albums bags in past years, created years worth of custom photography lighting equipment for us, and built an in window seat/chest under our bay window, and not to mention all the things I have broken in the past that he has rebuilt for me. He is more than handy around the house. I am very, very lucky to have him. Opposites sure to attract, and it keeps him busy icon wink Custom Hand Made

So here is the latest and greatest from the Rowell’s Wood Shop. It has been a long road to finally creating a product that will last many many years and protect our clients precious memories. Each wedding album we create will include a hand made oak wood box. These album boxes are solid wood, with a very smooth finish, the finger joint in the corners adds to their beauty. They offer a rustic look but serve as a high end centrepiece for any coffee table. When we designed these boxes we wanted to keep them made in Canada. It was important for us to use good wood and take our time finishing them to give them an unforgettable shine. We are thrilled to see these albums already sitting on our 2013 clientele’s coffee tables.

Cheers

Erika & Ryan

Just before the new year, Rivka & Jon’s Toronto wedding took place at  Arta in the Historic Toronto Distillery District, with a reception following at Archeo Restaurant just a short walk away. Over the years we have photographed many weddings in the Distillery District, but to our surprise this was the first one we photographed at these specific locations, and the first one we photographed in the winter. Jon & Rivka were good sports coming outdoors for a few late night portraits. Just after the newlyweds were introduced to their reception guests the party really came alive. Every guest got up to dance the Hora, a traditional Jewish wedding dance. This is by far one of our most favorite wedding traditions of all cultures. It is the best and fastest way to bring all guests from both sides of the family together. In our opinion more cultures should adopt this high energy tradition. It is definitely fun to be a photographer during the Hora!

This Toronto Distillery District wedding was lovely. It was elegant, calm, and understated . Full of love, amazing food and great stories during the speeches. It was an absolute pleasure to photograph, and the perfect way to end our amazing 2013 year.

Congratulations Jon & Rivka! Thank you for choosing us to document your special day.

Cheers

Erika & Ryan

Just before new years 2013 Luca photographed a winter elopement at Muskoka’s Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville, Canada. Our two lovely brides drove all the way from Chicago to get married in Muskoka! Emma & Ashley could not wait to get married, so along with their puppy they braved the cold Canadian winter drive to our beautiful, snowy Muskoka. Their outdoor wedding ceremony was held in the Deerhurst Resort gazebo over looking the picturesque landscape and white washed Peninsula Lake. Ashley & Emma opted for a casual dress ceremony with lots of fun elements like a horse drawn carriage, photo ops with their pup, and confetti poppers to celebrate their tying the knot.

Shortly after the wedding Ashley & Emma sent us this lovely message.

As a true elopement we had little time to plan, but Rowell Photography put us at ease and truly delivered a spectacular service.  Our point person, Erika made us feel like we were in safe hands and the details of our special day were all mapped out.  We met our photographer, Luca the morning of the wedding and he was excited to hear all our thoughts of how we envisaged our photographs to look.  Luca was incredibly professional and a great sport- whether he was wading through 3ft of snow or letting us throw confetti towards him or asking him to try and get our dog to stay still- he was amazing!!!  Rowell Photography was able to capture the beautiful setting of Muskoka as well as providing us with lasting memories of a fun and relaxed day. Ashley & Emma

Congratulations Emma & Ashley! We hope you come back and visit Muskoka and Canada again soon.

Cheers

Erika

We have been having a great winter season! With so many wonderfully snowy winter weddings, engagements, and families to share with you all. This Muskoka elopement ceremony took place at Taboo Resort in the Fireside Lounge, just before the new year. It has been a few years since we had seen an elopement inquiry in our inbox. This year we had one summer elopement and two in the winter, stay tuned for a lovely Deerhurst Resort Elopement by Luca coming to this blog soon. For the bride and groom, Crystal and Christopher a small wedding was exactly what they wanted. They were high school sweethearts and have been together for 16 years and engaged for 5 years. So on a cold clear afternoon they were married in Muskoka with just two guests, their witnesses, their sister and brother in law, and closest friends. They had a short and sweet ceremony, followed by shots at the bar, and photos all over the Taboo Resort lobby and patio. For us as photographers, one of the best parts of this wedding was that the resort was nearly deserted. Being so close to Christmas most people were spending time at home with family, so we had the place to ourselves for a few hours. When we asked Crystal and Chris why they chose to elope they said:

You can make an elopement anything you want it to be, you can have all the perks of a big wedding, the dress, photographers, flowers, decorations, and it still just be the two of you.

How romantic! We really loved photographing this wedding, we could have stayed at Taboo Resort, taking photos of these 4 all day. It was truly a pleasure to be apart of this lovely Muskoka winter elopement. Congratulations to Crystal & Christopher on tying the knot!

Cheers to a lifetime of happy memories.

Erika & Ryan

We just wanted to say thank you for doing a wonderful job for our elopement, we are so pleased with the photos you took. We will definitely recommend you to family and friends.  Thank you for being so easy to work with. We had so much fun working with you guys on our wedding day. We can’t thank you enough!

2014 is just around the corner, and this past year has been a great one. We have met so many amazing couples this past season and photographed so many lovely weddings. This wedding will surely not disappoint.

Shauna & Jordan were married at Taboo Resort earlier this year in Muskoka, Canada. You might remember them from their Toronto rooftop engagement session. Just this week their wedding was featured in one of Canada’s most beautiful wedding magazines, Elegant Wedding Magazine. Weeks before the wedding Jordan the groom contacted us to organize a special surprise he was planning for the bride. A fireworks display over Lake Muskoka during their wedding reception. Of course we thought this would be a great idea so we said just bring her outside at night and tell her that we wanted to take some night time photos on the docks. Muskoka at Taboo Resort is very, very dark on the water at night, so Shauna was totally confused as to how we were going to be able to see anything worth seeing in the darkness. I think Jordan even tried to convince her that there was a pretty street lamp that he wanted in a photo haha!  It was to say the least the most amazing moment of the day. Shauna was so surprised, the only thing bigger than her smile, were the fireworks that lit up the sky. It was the perfect end to a gorgeous summer day.

Once again we had the privilege of working with our great friends at Rachel A. Clingen Wedding and Event Design and Nicole Despins at Taboo Resort. 

We are so proud of this wedding, Thank you the the entire Leydon & Domelle Clans for making this day and our photos so beautiful. Congratulations to Shauna & Jordan!

Cheers

Erika & Ryan

Moments after we sent Shauna her wedding photos we received this this email.

“WOW!!! They are AMAZINGGGG!!!! You captured everything so so well and we are beyond happy. Looking at those photos helped us relive the whole day! We can’t thank you enough. I am obsessed with all the dock photos of Jordan and I and our bridal party!!”

Christine & Kayan were married early this October at Taboo Resort in Muskoka. Not only was this wedding super fun, but we also had the chance to work with some of our fave vendors as well. Our friends Paul & Melanie Darlington of Darlington Studios, the amazing staff at Taboo Resort and our new friend Holly Carney, wedding planner and owner of Holly Matrimony. Please be sure to check out all the links below to learn more about all these exciting wedding vendors.

We loved working with Christine & Kayan on their wedding day and we are so proud of these images and so excited to share them all with you. This post literally started out with 200 photos and I had to edit it down to a more sustainable 87 images (which is still a ton). I promise you won’t get bored of looking at them! and I’m not just saying that because we took them.

When Christine and Kayan are together they light each other up, and when you are around that kind of love and positive energy you cannot help but have  good time, and we can’t help but capture beautiful moments. We are so lucky to have had the chance to photograph such a beautiful wedding but even more so a love like C & K’s. As pretty as these photos are, they are above all one of a kind because their  love is what makes these moments come alive. You can’t buy a love like this. I know we don’t sell it, but we certainly try our best to capture it.

We hope you all enjoy these images and that they bring a smile to your faces. We wanted to thank all the wonderful vendors who helped make this day beautiful, and especially to Taboo Resort for allowing us to make a huge mess in the photo booth room and then supplying us with the brooms and vacuums to clean it all up at the end of the night. Finally we wanted to thank Christine & Kayan’s amazing family and friends who were all so kind to us.

Congratulations to C & K! You both looked smokin’ hot on your wedding day,  and we hope that each time you look at these images that it brings you back to that day when Kayan vowed to everyone that you are his “Number 1 Chocolate Muffin.” Haha! Probably our favourite moment of the day. Enjoy the photos!

Cheers Erika & Ryan

Last month we had the honour of photographing John & Christian’s Fairmont Royal York wedding. We have known this gorgeous couple for several years now, John is our hairstylist and did all the hair and makeup at our wedding as well as numerous photo shoots for our clients. Long before Christian asked John to marry him we actually did a couples photo shoot of them. It became quite a popular photo shoot for us, John & Christian in their underwear doing laundry, you can check it out here.

They were married on the 19th floor of the Royal York Hotel, surrounded by their closest friends and family. We loved how thoughtful and personalized every detail was. The invites were hand made by the grooms. John designed their bands and made the wedding cake. Their menus even had a photo of them on it from their couples shoot with us! Both Christian and John wore custom made kilts from one of our favorite Scottish shoppes Burnett’s and Struth Scottish Regalia. But the most unique detail I have ever seen at a wedding in all of our nearly 10 years of photographing couples in love was the Beauty and the Beast Enchanted Rose.  Yup! That’s right, they actually had a rose suspended in the air, inside a glass case just like the rose in the Disney movie. Christian loves this movie and just thought it was romantic and beautiful. With the help of Victoria Potter from Posh Beyond there was a real life version standing next to a framed portrait of the couple on the gift table.

After the ceremony the bridal party headed to Toronto’s Historic Distillery District for wedding party photos. Shortly after we headed to the rooftop garden at the Royal York for some couples shots. It was a truly magical day. We are so excited to show off this wedding on our blog. Christian and John, you two were absolutely handsome in your kilts, but the most beautiful part of the day was witnessing the happiness you both bring to one another and everyone around you. Thank you for choosing us to be apart of your special day.

Congratulations John & Christian!

Cheers

Erika & Ryan

We are pretty stoked to share this MacLaren Art Centre wedding with you all that Luca photographed here in Barrie, ON with our good friend Richard Roth as his 2nd shooter. You may remember Jenny & Jeff from their Barrie, Ontario engagement session earlier this year also photographed by Luca. This wedding is pure class! From Jenny’s dress and soft pink shoes and Jeff’s cool blue suit, to busting champagne bottles over looking gorgeous Kempenfelt Bay and dancing the night away in an art gallery. This wedding truly captures everything that is beautiful about Barrie and this adorable couple. Luca & Richard, you really created some truly superb art here. Nice work photogra-friends!

We love that Jenny & Jeff opted to do a first look and see one another before the wedding ceremony. Couples often ask what the benefits of seeing one another ahead of time are, and here are just a few.

1. Seeing one another before can alleviate a lot of that wedding planning stress before the ceremony. It gives you that time to reconnect with one another about everything that needs to be in place before you say your “I do’s”. Once you have done that, you can start to just have fun! Texting one another seconds before you walk down the aisle to make sure the ushers sit your great aunt who is nearly blind at the front, or making sure the boutonnieres and corsages get to the right family members is not as calming and reassuring as looking at your spouse when you say it.

2. When you choose to see one another before the ceremony, you have the opportunity to be photographed together. I know you can do this after the ceremony, but its a nice feeling to know that once the ceremony is over and you walk down that aisle you are walking right into your cocktail reception, and you can start to mingle and get your drink on. Getting the family photos, your couples photos and bridal party done during this pre-ceremony time (in our experience) results in better photos throughout the day because you are relaxed, and you are not running your things to do list in your head. This is your time, you paid for it and you should be enjoying with with one another and all your awesome guests.

3. No matter how well you plan and schedule your wedding down to the minute, it is not going to be perfect. Things fall behind, and plans are altered. This is the reality of everything wedding. Your photographs are the only thing you take away from your wedding experience aside from one another and your rings. So when the ceremony and receiving line run over time and dinner must be served hot by 6pm, and you have yet to take a photo with both your families and your bridal party, what do you do? Well when you have the chef pressuring you to get people into the reception to be seated and the coordinators trying to rally guests from one location to the next, couples tend to put the axe on photo time. What else is there to do? We get it, at the time it sounds like an okay idea but after the wedding when you realize how rushed you were during the 30 minutes you had available for the photographer, you are going to have wedding regret! The truth is, you shouldn’t even have to choose because there is a way to avoid this schedule debacle: Setting aside time at the beginning of the day to do your wedding portraits and having a first look is just a fun way to kick off the wedding photos.

Kudos to Jenny & Jeff for nailing down this wedding thing. You guys should get married all the time icon smile MacLaren Art Centre Wedding Congratulations to you both!

Cheers

Erika & Ryan

Today we announced the date of our Holiday Portraits Promo at Barrie Garden Centre. I have to be honest it made me a little dizzy to think about how fast the year had gone by. We’re not ready to think about snow, we’re just not! That being said we have decided to bombard you all with images of beautiful summer and autumn days for a few more weeks long.

Hey everyone,

Mandy & Keegan got married!!!!! You might remember these high school sweethearts from their romantic Muskoka engagement session, as it was one of our most popular blog posts of 2012! Seriously, a lot of people saw this post. On a super sunny day Mandy and Keegan tied the knot at The Rosseau Muskoka JW Marriott Resort & Spa, with their  wedding ceremony on the back lawn over looking Lake Rosseau, and photos on the docks. They filled the ballroom with over 150 of their closest friends and family, and I am sure that at some point in the day each one of them shed a tear. This was one of the most emotional weddings we have been to. I couldn’t put all the crying shots in this post because there were just too many of them (haha) but I kept a few favourites from the ceremony. We were so excited for this wedding because it was our first wedding with the amazing team at Mode Function Event Design in Muskoka and our first wedding at J.W Marriott Muskoka. It was an absolutely beautiful day, Mandy was a vision in her lace mermaid style wedding dress and Jimmy Choo shoes, and Keegan’s face says it all when she walked down the aisle. By far my favourite moment from the day.

We hope you all enjoy this extra long wedding blog post. Congratulations to Mandy & Keegan, we are so honoured to have been a part of your wedding day, thank you for choosing us to photograph it.

Cheers

Erika & Ryan
