Sam & Matt’s Gracewood Estates Wedding was a day I was looking forward to for well over a year. I knew it would be a wedding full of the most beautiful details and on a property perfectly picturesque! And boy did it not disappoint.

The morning started at the lovely White Oaks. Matt enjoyed the company of his groomsmen over breakfast as Sam gathered with her bridesmaids and mother upstairs in a suite primping before the big first look reveal. The laughter in the room was a sure indication of the fun to follow.

The first look between Matt and Sam was my favourite part of their day. Matt and Sam saw each other for the first time in the orchard. The sun shining bright and tree branches outlining them perfectly.  And just as the sun shined brightly so did their love for one another. The moment was raw and real, and not to mention completely romantic. It a gave them that special personal moment in the chaos that is sometimes a wedding day.

The day went on with a beautiful ceremony, more photos, cocktails, quiet chatter, laughter, inside jokes, hands being held, speeches shared, dancing, eating, a toast to the newlyweds, more dancing, sips of scotch under the star light, and more dancing. It was a beautiful day, designed just perfectly for this couple. I was beyond happy to share in their moment.


Here are a few of my favourite photos and moments from Sam and Matt’s Gracewood Estates Wedding at the stunning Kurtz Orchard, xo!
