hilary + greg | a joyful wedding day at LAGO on dow's lake

"Over the last 8 years we've shared so many milestones together. 
Graduating University, getting our first jobs, moving out, (and then moving 
back in with our parents...) buying our first house together, and so
many more.  It's been amazing growing with you over these years.

You've taught me so much about love, and compassion, determination,
communication, and most importantly, what types of dogs are best. 
You're the biggest supporter and the love of my life, and I can't wait to 
spend the rest of my life with you..."

Greg said those words to Hilary on July 13th, 2019; a day that will forever hold meaning in their lives as the beginning of a new chapter. 

If you were lucky enough to be present, then you know it was a day of laughter and celebration. If you weren't, well, then allow me to bring you into Hilary & Greg's wedding with a taste of some of my favourite beautiful moments. Enjoy!


It was absolutely impossible to take a bad photo of Hilary's details -- every element was so beautiful!



Can we get some love for the vintage jewellery and velvet ring box, please? Obsessed!






Ohhhhhkay, you're gonna be seeing lots of this little man. Prepare for a blog post featuring the sweetest ring bearer and flower girls EVER!





Hey, Mill Street... You hit it out of the park with this bouquet!!




This photo slayed on insta. The leg. The mini bottles of rosé. The happiest bride in the game...





Across town, Greg and his handsome groomsmen were working on the finishing touches...


And you can truly never have enough hands on deck to straighten the ties and adjust the boutonnières. 





Hilary and Greg chose LAGO on Dow's Lake for their ceremony and reception. It was such a gorgeous day and later in the evening all of their guests would make use of the beautiful patio for the cocktail hour. 


My heart!!


This custom ceremony pergola allowed for the most incredible perspective during the ceremony. Hilary and Greg knew they would be backlit, so they left us a TON of space to document their best angles! 

And when I say we, I mean myself and the dudes from Up North Wedding Films! Love working with them.











 



Marriage looks so good on these two! 














This photo will probably be on my website for the rest of tiiiiime. It's just the realest expression of what it means to have good people by your side on the most important day of your life...










And let us never forget the original sneak peek; the most magical photo of Hilary and Greg beneath the willow tree:


Back at Dow's Lake, the guests were enjoying cocktails and appetizers on the veranda!




While I captured a few details inside...


Oh, and who's that? It's one of my couples for the 2020 season, who I introduced you to last week after I shared their incredible engagement session on a rooftop at sunset! Hey, Shay & Cam! 

Cam is Hilary's cousin, so I already have a head start at meeting the extended fam for their wedding next Summer!









I really love crashing a MDRN photobooth for a few behind the scenes pics... 



Hilary & Greg, what a magical day! It was such a pleasure to meet your family and friends and spend the whole day with you capturing your happy faces and the celebration that was July 13th, 2019! 

I cannot wait to be seeing you again on a certain Saturday next Summer. Until then, all my love! And from the bottom of my heart thank you for trusting me to document every second <3
