susanna + kyle | rainy day fall wedding at le belvedere

The season is coming to a close! But not to worry, I still have three beautiful weddings to share before off-season kicks in. The first of three, an intimate wedding on a chilly fall afternoon at Le Belvedere for Susanna & Kyle. 

So many beautiful moments were captured and it was a pleasure to be there to document it all! Susanna & Kyle opted to keep things very simple, and approached their wedding day with an understanding of what was truly important to them. Their low key and relaxed attitudes made for an incredible day. Enjoy!! 


The Guest House was made for fall!!







Susanna, you are so radiant! I love this photo of you! And your hair... Showpony team, you have outdone yourselves.
















Stunning!! 














It was relatively clear at the beginning of the ceremony, so no one was really prepared when it started to pour rain just 20 minutes later... 







Obsessed with the fall colours in this shot!






In a matter of seconds, the skies turned white and the rain came out of nowhere. In this photo below you can see guests rushing to find hats, hoods, or umbrellas! 

Because the group was SO small, and we were so close to the end of the ceremony, we made the decision to have everyone run under the pergola instead of re-locating inside. Le Belvedere has an indoor ceremony space, but we were a mere 3-4 minutes away from the first kiss! 


It was cozy and intimate and everyone got a close view of the happy couple as they officially became husband and wife. Not everything goes according to plan, but if you can roll with it and EMBRACE the curveballs, it's an excellent sign that you've found the right partner for life. 






The reception space was warm and inviting, and tea service was taking priority over cocktails for these chilly guests...







Proof that Le Belvedere is an incredible venue... Take a look at these natural-light family photos that were taken in the downstairs space:







The raindrops ceased, and in lieu of sunset photos we took a stroll along the side of the cliff...


These photos are some of my favourites from the day.





















Susanna & Kyle -- what an incredible day! You guys are such troopers and it was an honour to be your choice to document your wedding. I am so impressed at how you handled every little curveball and know in my heart that you are going to share an amazing life together as husband and wife. All the best and hope our paths cross again soon!! xo
