Our wedding in the South of France

So as you may know, especially if you follow me on Instagram, my boyfriend (now husband) and I got married in May!  We had a small destination wedding in the South of France with 12 of our closest friends and family.  Since we are both wedding photographers we knew we wanted to do something a bit different and not have to deal with the drama that comes along with having a 100+ guest list.  Don't worry though if you are having a big wedding!  We still had drama lol.  

We found our "venue" on Airbnb which also doubled as everyone's accommodations for the week.  It was a stunning 14th century chateau in the small town of Saint-Hippolyte-de-Caton located around nine hours south of Paris.  This place was wildly beautiful and I still can't believe we got married there!  Everyday started off with an adventure to the nearest bakery to get fresh croissants (HOLY CRAP WERE THEY EVER DELICIOUS!) and some other staples for the day.  We relaxed pool-side or would go on mini road trips to the near towns and be tourists for the day.  Half of our group had never been to Europe before and the other half had never been to France so we were excited to explore the stunning countryside.  I would definitely recommend it can't wait to go back one day with Joey!

Our wedding day was really low-key and relaxed.  We started out the day the same as the others, with croissants and coffee out on the patio.  We got ready in the afternoon, did our first look and then some photos and had a late ceremony with cocktails and dinner afterwards.  The night ended with a lot of Drake, ska music, some crazy dance moves, and jumping into the pool!

Some of these photos are from the sweet little town of Saint-Hippolyte-de-Caton, including our chateau, Arles, Nimes, and other little towns that we stopped in because of their beauty.  Enjoy :)

Ioana & Danny's Mexico Wedding

Last year I was sooo bad at blogging and keeping up to date with all the work I had to share so it only made sense to share the first wedding I shot last year that also happened to be my first destination wedding!
Ioana and Danny found me through one of my other brides and I am so glad they did!  I photographed their small church ceremony in snowy Ontario and then we jetted off to Playa Del Carmen in Mexico the same day.  Before that I had only been on vacation to one other tropical country so I was super excited, and even better I got to bring my fiancé along with me!
We went with about 30 of their closest family and friends to Blue Bay Grand Esmeralda.  Their wedding took place right on the beach under the swaying palm trees and with a breeze coming in right off the ocean.  It was beautiful!  After the ceremony we took the bridal party along the beach for some photos and then by the palms for photos of just the bride and groom.  I have never seen any location so beautiful and obviously so different from what I am used to in Ontario.  I was so excited to be there and capturing their wedding! 
Their reception took place at one of the a la carte restaurants on the resort.   It was a beautiful French restaurant called L’Atelier where we had the whole place to ourselves to celebrate and then dance the rest of the night.
The rest of our vacation was spent sipping Bahama Mama’s on the beach and swimming in the ocean.  Please take me back!
Thank you Ioana and Danny for trusting me to capture your day and for bringing Joey and I along to such a beautiful country for your wedding!
