Maria and Shawn chose to celebrate their union with a Stratus Vineyard wedding in Niagara-on-the-Lake.  If you’ve never traveled through the area, this little town is one of the most pristine, perfect and picturesque little places we’ve ever been to.  If you close your eyes, and think of the most idyllic North American small town town – white picket fences, beautifully groomed gardens out front, smiling faces and adorable little children eating ice-cream on a hot summers day – that’s Niagara-on-the-Lake in a nutshell.

      In addition to all the beautiful waterfront views, this little town features more vineyards than you can shake a stick at.  It’s rare to be able to do a fully outdoor wedding in Canada (al fresco dinner included), but Maria and Shawn pulled it off.  They said their ‘I-do’s’ under a beautiful floral arch, with thrilled family and friends looking on.  Their son beamed from ear to ear when he saw his mom walk down the aisle, and ran around happily as Maria and Shawn made it official.  The kids at this wedding were so rambunctious and so eager to be photographed, we couldn’t have been happier to be there.

      After enjoying one of the most delicious wedding meals we’ve ever had, the group opened the dance floor with some traditional Greek dances, followed by some incredible old school house jams.  This lovely, sunny Stratus Vineyard wedding is one we won’t soon forget…

      […] We honestly can’t say enough about this past year – its been a whirlwind, and we could not be more grateful.  It took us a while, but below is our portfolio of our best wedding photography of 2017.  We were so lucky to ring in the New Year with Shell and Daniel in Hilo, Hawaii at their family home wedding. From there, we documented one of the sweetest, and most intimate of weddings in Los Angeles – Alex and Linda’s  lovely Koreatown celebration.  Without rattling ou every single amazing wedding, we traveled through New Zealand, France, Fogo Island, Tofino, Mexico, New York, Montreal, Toronto, Ingersoll Ontario, and even the classic honeymoon capital, Niagara Falls.

      Awesome pics of Shawn & Maria’s special day.
