Mr.&Mrs. Szatko

Congratulations to Michael & Tiffany who tied the knot on Saturday May 12th, 2018

Michael & Tiffany began preparing alongside their Groomsmen and Bridesmaids in the early morning of this beautiful overcast day.  Truly a photographer’s dream wedding day from start to finish!! 

Tiffany purchased her wedding dress at Promise & Lace.  Her dress was light and delicate with the top half and the back of the dress covered in delicate lace details.  Her shoulder straps had beautiful rhinestone beading along with the outer edges of her cathedral length veil.  This dress was exquisite and fit like a glove on this radiant beauty.    

Anticipation filled her parent’s home along with beautiful breakfast spreads and framed notes from the groom himself to his bride.  Make-up was flowing by Makeup Artist Monika from Makeup Worx and Hair completed by the talented Nora.  The Bridesmaids were dressed in a stunning cameo color and were waiting expectantly for this brides’ reveal.

Meanwhile, back at Michaels parent’s house, laughter and good times were brewing.  Michael was found helping Brother-In-Law to be, Shawn get ready.  Shawn was super proud to be a part of this day and you could tell these two had quite the brotherly bond established.  Michael was looking sharp as he   was putting on the finishing touches with his best man.  He was dressed in a sleek black tuxedo with bow-tie.  The groomsmen were waiting all dressed in light grey suits and hollered with cheers of excitement as this groom made his debut.

As the party made it way down to the ceremony memories were being made.  We arrived at a stunning and decorative church dressed in white and gold.  Family and friends filled the pews and watched as the two became one.

The weather stayed perfect as we travel to the portrait destination.  Laughter and good times were being had.  This location was filled with beautiful trees, flowers and towering gates at the beautiful RBG gardens.

As I entered to the reception location held at Winona Vine Estates the entry and hall was created and sculpted by Gary and Sandra from “Oliveira Décor.”  This team duo did an amazing job as you can see.  As the Groom & Bride arrived we headed to the hall for a few more pictures as the hall floor displayed an amazing message for the Bride & Groom.  Winona Vine Estates was amazing, and the service was outstanding! The antipasto bar greeted each guest along with Crab leg, shrimp & more.  As the floor was being prepared the bridal party made their grand entrance and welcomed Mr. & Mrs. Szatko for the second time of the day. The first dance was performed by a Musician by the name of Elena.  She encircled them playing with her rhinestone covered violin.  Exquisite!    

As the dinner course was rolling out Elena was setting the stage to play the harp in a stunning globe.  This was something. 

This wedding was set with excellence from beginning to end! 

I am amazed at the time, energy and planning that was put into making this Bride and Grooms day  to happen. 

Michael & Tiffany, thank you so much for allowing me to share your moments and to be your photographer for the day.  I am wishing you nothing but the absolute best for your future as you truly are outstanding people.  Again congratulation and I am looking forward to celebrating more milestones in your future.

On Saturday, September 23rd, the temperature on this warm day ready a record high.  The sun was shinny and bright which made this day even more beautiful for this couple.  The day started off at the Spice Factory located in Hamilton, Ontario and everyone was extremely busy prepping the hall, ceremony and of course getting ready.

Bethany and her beautiful Bridesmaids were setting the tone for the wonderful day ahead of them.  Hair and makeup and final touches just magnified each one of their beauty.  Bethany wore a gorgeous white empire waste bridal gown and her bridesmaids were in a beautiful wine colour. They were all stunning including the beautiful bride who just radiated.  

The Handsome Groom and His Groomsmen were busy getting ready and wearing a stunning suit of grey with of wine accent. Boutineer's & flowers for the day were provide by the talented Christina by Pearls & Spice. What an amazing artist she was.

While the day was moving along Justin & Bethany were looking forward with anticipation to start their day with the First Look.  Justin waiting with eagerness to see his Bride and Bethany glowed with Excitement.  As the Blind fold was removed and the Groom turned, His smile said it all.  Both glowed and it was such a beautiful experience to witness.

We proceeded to begin our journey to the Dundas Hermitage and Trail and let me tell you this location was stunning.   From the trails to the greenery and then the ruins, how could this couple go wrong.  This couple, I have to say rocked this hot day and Justin props to you in that suit.  

As the pictures where unravelling time was quickly approaching to say the "i do's."  The atmosphere was dimly lit and had such a glow about it.  This celebration of love was beautifully done and these two were off to begin their next chapter as Mr&Mrs Voortman.  

Justin and Bethany, thank you for allowing to share your personal love story and I wish you both nothing but happiness for years to come.  Enjoy this beautiful sneak peak of you day.

Again Congratulations
