Caitlin & Nick

Written by Ryan Rowell

Caitlin & Nick’s engagement session took place in one of our favourite Canadian towns Niagara-On-The-Lake,  on any day this town is bustling with people, and the cutest shops. Not to mention Ontario’s best vineyards. We love how Caitlin and Nick incorporated Caitlin’s love of being a school teaching into the details of their engagement and wedding. For their Save the Date cards they had their photos taken at Kurtz orchard and wrote their wedding date on apples.

Caitlin and Nick were married at the Enoch Turner Schoolhouse and partied the night away at The Distillery District for their reception where they used chalk boards for their seating charts and had a giant chalk board welcome sign at the entrance to their reception venue. With their huge wedding party in tow we visited some of Toronto’s most picturesque locations. Some of the locations below include the Toronto beaches for bridal party portraits, Polsen Pier for some of the stunning Toronto skyline wedding party portraits, and Toronto’s Distillery District for the new happy couples wedding photos. We even stopped at a Starbucks to catch a pick of the newlyweds sharing a frappuchino.

A whirlwind event like this one is just an example of the variety and personalized photographs we can create for you.

We started Caitlin and Nick’s engagement session just outside of our favorite Niagara-On-The-Lake shop: Greaves Jams & Marmalades.

These two are huge Starbucks Fans, they had to stop by for a few photos.

There are so many beautifully manicured gardens in NOTL, but our favorite is the tiny little garden at The Oban Inn.

No trip to Niagara is complete without a little wine tour.The grapes were ready for picking.

Caitlin is a teacher and for their save the date cards they chose to paint their wedding date on to apples, to go with the school theme which would later be present in their wedding too.

We walked all over Niagara-On-The-Lake for this engagement session and visited another favourite place of ours; Kurtz Orchard.

On Nick & Caitlin’s wedding day, Nick and the groomsmen got ready that the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Downtown Toronto.

All the bridesmaids had matching red hearts on their shoes.

Caitlin wanted to surprise her dad and brother with a first look at her in her wedding dress.

For their portraits, Caitlin & Nick wanted the Toronto city skyline, and what better place for that panoramic view than Polsen Pier.

Just like their engagement photos, they couldn’t resist the urge to stop at Starbucks for a photo op.
The reception was held at Toronto’s Historic Distillery District. Probably the best, and most sought after photo location for Toronto weddings.

The old red brick at the Distillery really gives off that old vintage look. It was perfect for Caitlin and Nick’s wedding.

Large bridal parties are the best. They even make jumping shots look fun!

The Cocktail & reception were held at The Distillery. The bridal party was introduced outside and danced their way through the crowd.

The very modern, rustic Distillery District. A very unique venue for weddings receptions.
