Sabrina + Vince Wedding

Buongiorno! Here we are on the last official weekend of winter, hangin’ out with my beautiful Italian couple Sabrina and Vince. It’s been a while since I’ve done an Italian wedding and aside from the lively crowd of friends and family….one thing that never disappoints is all that yummy Italian food! They chose to celebrate inside the Paramount Conference and Event Centre hosted byPeterandPauls in Vaughan, Ontario. Being a foodie myself, I always look forward to seeing them in a wedding event, as they really do an amazing job with their catering services! Moreover, I also got the chance to do their portrait session at the beautiful Graydon Hall Manor. It was my first time there and the space was just a lovely playground for me to shoot! 🙂 Congratulations Sabrina and Vince!! Thanks for making us part of your wedding day!

Cozy winter cottage fun in the woods

I think too many times we hear “oh, is winter over yet?”…but we often forget how beautiful it can be as well! Ever since I was a kid growing up in a warm country like the Philippines, I’ve always dreamed of sitting by the fire and cozying up with a warm cup of hot chocolate in my hand, inside a tiny cottage in the middle of winter…you know, just like what you see in the movies! Well, it might not be exactly like the movies, but this came pretty darn close! We found this small, quaint & cute little cottage up north, settled in front of a frozen pond, in between such gorgeous rows of trees! It had rustic written all over it and couldn’t resist the idea coming to life! Since the little pond was frozen, it was the perfect backdrop to some ice play! The kids simply had a blast being dragged in a snow sled all over the place while mom and dad finally got their much needed workout! And after a long day of fun, we started that fire, sipped some soup, played some games, told some stories and finally tucked into our sleeping bags upstairs in the tiny little loft. Needless to say we all had so much fun! 🙂
