Iris & Halley
Colourful, vintage inspired, rustic, and relaxed, Iris and Halley’s wedding day at Willow Springs Winery had all the perfect components for one gorgeous and all around beautiful big day. There were so many awesome little details that these two thought of to really pull everything together and also to make sure everyone had an an incredible time.
I shot Iris and Halley’s engagement photos back in the spring and we had a full out blast (it was pouring rain that day but that didn’t stop these two from being freakin amazing) so I totally knew their wedding day was going to be out of this world. And it was even 500x more awesome than I could’ve ever imagined.
One of the little details that I absolutely adored was the ring box that they brought for photos of their wedding bands. A glass chest filled with vibrantly dyed baby’s breath flowers and a cute mini tree stump to place their rings in. So perfect for the look and feel of the whole day. Head’s up: I’m totally going to be stealing this idea and making one of these to bring along to future weddings haha
And their venue was truly special too. Willow Springs Winery has the most gorgeous location for an outdoor ceremony, overlooking a beautiful pond with willow trees draping over the picturesque scene. We made use of their amazing vineyard for both the first look and sunset portraits, and I think this may be one of my all time favourite sunset spots for bride and groom portraits. Because there are so many ways to get creative with the shots here. Also, shoutout to the amazing staff at Willow Springs for suggesting some of the hidden gems to shoot at on site.
The reception was held in a beautiful window lined banquet room with a vaulted wooden ceiling and fairy lights twinkling all around. One of my favourite moments from the night was when Iris and Halley each performed a surprise song for each other, this was so cute and seriously needs to be a thing at all weddings!
Since it was the Canada Day long weekend, we got to have fun with a whole bunch of sparklers near the end of the night too, the perfect way to celebrate these two and their love. Congrats Iris & Halley!!!!
