Five | Personal Life {Grimsby Child Photographer}

Five. It’s hard to believe that tomorrow I will be the mother to a five year old.  It feels like you have always been a part of our lives, and yet five years is such a short time to be on this earth. In that time you have grown from a {very} bald little blue eyed baby to this sweet, adorable little girl. No more baby, no more toddler… you’re a little girl now. At five years old you are quick to help out in the home or with your siblings. You are a second mother to Eden and Kingston, you adore your Daddy, and all things pink, purple, sparkly, princess and ballet. You are a girl through and through! This year as you headed off to Kindergarten, it really struck me how much you’ve grown. It hurts to let you go, (I am so afraid that you might experience pain in any form and I want to protect you from everything) but in doing so I have seen you blossom even more. I am so proud of you little one. I’m thankful to hear of your faith in the LORD, and I’m thankful that He blessed us with you. Happy birthday Kyara~ Mumma loves you so much!

Charles and Erika | Together for Life {Vineland Wedding Photography}

Finally- I am back to blogging! Business has been crazy busy lately, which is great, but it means blogging went to the backburner. However, I wanted to show some images from one of my last weddings of the year. Actually, it’s going to be more than a few images…cause Charles and Erika’s Vineland Estates Winery wedding was stunning!

Charles and Erika had a very small, intimate destination wedding in Niagara, with just 25 guests. It was beautiful. We met them at the Hilton Hotel in Niagara Falls to photograph them getting ready, where they had the most amazing view of the Falls from their suite! I hitched a ride in their Rolls Royce (that was fun!) to the wedding/reception site at Vineland Estates Winery. The weather was amazing, and so was the atmosphere. Two people who love each other, surrounded by the friends and family they love the most… there was a lot of happiness all around!

We had a bit of time before the car arrived, so why not get some Starbucks? Apparently, when you’re the bride, it’s on the house!

Wedding Party in front of Building

Charles and Erika hosted an 8 course dinner for their guests, complete with wines paired with each course. I’m not a wine person at all – but food?!? I’m in love with food! haha It was amazing seeing the incredible food prepared by the talented team in the kitchen. I’m not sharing any food pics because this is already getting very, very long. But let me assure you- it was good. Vineland Estates Restaurant is one of the world’s top 20 winery restaurants!
