Michelle and Michael met each other at their first year of university. It’s a funny story since it started off with Michelle’s laptop being broken. She went to find someone who she knew in computer science to help her fix it. She asked Michael to help Michelle and they turned into fast friends. Their friendship later turned into something more and they started dating. They quickly became inseparable and they have pretty much been that way ever since!
Mike later received a job opportunity to work in Chatman, where they both decided to find their first place together. They ended up working for the same company. But after three years of being far away from friends and family, they made the tough decision to both quit their jobs and move closer to home. They ended up finding new jobs working at the same company together again! How incredible that they can wake up together, go to work together, eat lunch together, drive home together and still want to spend all their evenings together. They say, there’s still never too much time. It’s true – when you find the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, life feels too short to miss any minute.
Michelle and Michael’s Kortright Centre wedding was so beautiful. I always love photographing here because I just know how amazing it’s going to be. A Kortright wedding is always surrounded by the beauty of nature with rustic vibes. Michelle and Michael decided to have a first look so we could have more time for photos. We captured their first look on the long boardwalk which was so beautifully intimate. I love love love capturing bride and groom photos in the incredible forest of tall pine trees. Kortright is also an eco-friendly venue using all natural-powered energy sources.
Michelle and Michael kept their wedding eco-friendly through the use of faux flowers for the centrepieces and bouquet – but they looked so natural! Their wedding ceremony was held in the gorgeous glass house and their reception at the stunning gallery of trees. I love how they decided not to have a sweet table – but instead a table full of an assortment of pies! Their wedding cake was also a pie instead. Their guests enjoyed a small bonfire outside where they could toast marshmallows and s’mores. It was the perfect end to the perfect day!
