Kristin + John | Wedding Video in Orillia, ON

Kristin + John are one of the most adorable couples I’ve ever met. You can tell they love one another immensely even after spending only a few moments with them. In fact, every time John glances at Kristin, a shy, boyish grin creeps across his face and his eyes light up. It’s endearing.

Kristin used to work at Mariposa Market in Orillia, ON a while ago, which just so happens to be one of my preferred places to eat in town. Primarily, because they bake the most delectable Skor cakes I have ever tasted! I believe the majority of our initial conversation revolved around the delicious desserts offered at Mariposa Market. Kristin is so much fun! We had a blast talking about food and wedding planning! Two of my favourite things!

Kristin loves sunflowers. She chose a bouquet of sunflowers for her and her bridesmaids, and vibrant yellow boutonnieres for the guys. In keeping with this colorful theme, she paired her sunny floral arrangement with bright red pumps. The colour scheme was bold and brilliant!

I met Kristin and her ladies in Orillia, ON before they headed off to the ceremony at the quaint Sacred Heart Church in Warminster, ON. Kristin + John selected this particular chapel, not only for it’s charm, but it’s convenient location. It is situated right around the corner from their home! Kristin + John had a lovely ceremony, expressed their own personalized vows and exchanged rings before their family and friends.

After the ceremony, they drove to a family friend’s farm (only a minute down the road) for bridal party photographs. It was an amazing plot of land covered in sunflowers. Kristin couldn’t have asked for anything more.

The reception was held at Hawk Ridge Golf Club in Orillia, ON. This was my first time ever filming at this location, and I must say they have the friendliest staff! It is a great venue! Kristin previously worked at Hawk Ridge, and it meant so much for her to be reunited with her previous co-workers on this special day and to celebrate their wedding day at the club. You could sense that it is a very special place to them.

Kristin + John had the ideal late summer wedding. Thank you both for inviting me to capture those special moments on your wedding day! Congratulations, and enjoy your brand new hot tub!
