As a wedding photographer, it was a true honour to capture the beautiful and emotional day of Stacey and Shane’s wedding at The Guild Inn Estate in Scarborough, ON. This was a day that will be forever remembered by everyone who was there, and I am so grateful to have been a part of it.
Stacey and Shane’s families have been friends for years, and their love story is one that spans continents and cultures. Their wedding was a celebration of the love that they share, and of the deep connections they have with their families and friends. The fact that Stacey’s family came all the way from the US and loved ones from both families travelled from South Africa to be there was a testament to the special bond that they have.
The morning of the wedding was filled with excitement and anticipation as I captured the getting-ready moments of Stacey and Shane. Stacey had a first-look moment with her father that was incredibly emotional, and I was touched to be able to document this special moment. The ceremony was beautiful, with clear chairs and candlelights along the aisle, creating a bright and elegant atmosphere. Shane’s father officiated the ceremony, which added a personal touch that was truly special.
The Guild Inn Estate provided the perfect setting for photos, with its mix of modern facilities and impressive pieces of architecture salvaged from demolished historic buildings. The grounds were stunning, and we took full advantage of them for family photos, portraits of the wedding party, and the most romantic pictures of Stacey and Shane.
The reception was a true celebration of love, with touching speeches and a video message from loved ones all the way from South Africa, which brought happy tears to everyone’s eyes. The food was out of this world, and the dancing was incredible. The music was a mix of South African beats, and everyone danced with such joy and enthusiasm.
I want to give a special shoutout to the wedding planner Jennifer from Jenuine Occasions, who did an amazing job of bringing Stacey and Shane’s vision to life. The Guild Inn Estate was the perfect venue, with its unique and beautiful setting, and I have no doubt that Stacey and Shane will always cherish the memories they made there.
In conclusion, Stacey and Shane’s wedding day was a true celebration of love, friendship, and family, and I feel so grateful to have been able to capture it all. I wish them a lifetime of happiness and love, and I hope these photos will always bring a smile to their faces and remind them of this special day.
