Intimate Cottage Wedding in Thorndale Ontario


filed in

An intimate cottage wedding in Southwestern Ontario filled with gardens, lakeside magic, but most of all lots of love. Brooke and Helaman and their love story made a special impact on us. They love each other so well, and we consider them lifelong friends. So happy our paths crossed in life and that we could document their cottage wedding story for all the days to come!


Marry your best friend

We find that every couple who comes to us values two big things in life: 1) family, and 2) are married to their best friend. Brooke & Helaman are a couple who live this out with their whole hearts. And we loved every moment of capturing their incredible day.


Cottage Wedding on the Lake

Brooke and Helaman’s cottage wedding was held at their friend’s private property. The rustic charm of the outdoors and elegant details made their day a truly memorable soirée. I mean, what’s better than sharing your vows while surrounded by nature?


Magical moment

There were so many incredible moments at Brooke & Helaman’s cottage wedding. From the truly magical golden light that kissed their first dance, to their first look on the forest path, to watching the couple take-in the peaceful lake view together and eating their favourite Greek food at their reception. Paper lanterns and plenty of florals peppered throughout the day added lots of extra magic. Their colour scheme of navy, cream, shades of light blue, and greenery were the perfect complement to the outdoors!


A perfect day at the cottage

Brooke and Helaman had a lakeside sparkler send-off! Surrounded by their closest friends and family, we felt super blessed to photograph their day. Their love for each other and others made us feel at right at home and there was no other place we would have rather been. Brooke & Helaman, thank you for trusting us to photograph your day. We treasure your friendship! So excited for all the beautiful milestones ahead of the two of you. Truly, D&S
