Real Wedding: Vittoria + Blair
Blair and Vittoria's orchard wedding day was one for the books. I know I say that a lot, but this one will forever hold a place in my heart. These two poke fun at each other, know how to love each other well, and have the best sense of humour. I finally got the opportunity to work at Brantview Orchards and am so grateful to have had an incredible team with me!
From the moment we spoke on the phone, Vittoria and I clicked. It's always special when a couple trusts me with their biggest day. I knew she wanted a unique wedding, but the reason why made me (and everyone else!) tear up when she shared her heart in the speech on their wedding day.
A few months before she met Blair, her dad passed away. He loved the outdoors and, because of that, Vittoria always felt close to him in nature. Having her ceremony in the orchard and the reception steps away meant so much to her.

I've completed many weddings, but it's always the ones with heartfelt stories that remind me why I love this work. It's about building and celebrating legacies and creating memories that will be cherished for many lifetimes.
Without further ado, let's get to the gorgeous images by Karen Benwell Photography that I just can't keep staring at!
Taking that walk through the orchard to the ceremony was magical, and I always find it fun to see a "behind-the-scenes" photo of one of my favorite moments--fluffing the dress before that special walk!
How stunning is that ceremony setting?! The arbor is the perfect blank slate for your biggest vision and Leslie from Warehouse 84 didn't disappoint!
When Karen Benwell asks you to help carry a blush vintage sofa into the middle of the orchard, you jump on board because this is the kind of magic that happens. (Yes, it was an adventure getting it there, but totally worth it!)
With a combination of beautiful lighting, beautiful hearts, tears of joy, and moments of hilarity, being part of this wedding was one of the biggest blessings of my career. I couldn't have done it without the sweetest vendor team! Congrats again, Blair and Vittoria--may marriage be your biggest and best adventure together!
