The Romance of Winter + True Love

Where the Pines Grow

He took her hand into his and they walked up to where the pines were. The snow fluttered down around them, landing on the trees like jewels and ornaments. The grounds at Sydenham Ridge Estates took on a magical air. We knew Christina and Ethan were really special when they first reached out. And on the day of their wintery engagement session, it was so clear that these two were meant to be soul mates. 

Surprise Sydenham Ridge Estates snowfall

Leading up to their winter engagement session, there was no sight of snow. But just in time, like it was meant to be, the most whimsically snowy day happened on the day of their session. The grounds were completely transformed. And we were in wide-eyed wonder at the beauty of it all. 

A Couple you’ll never forget

These two are an incredible power team and it’s an understatement to say we’re excited for their wedding day! Ethan is such a gem and gentleman. We love how he cares for Christina. And we love how these two have so much fun together! Christina is a an absolutely stunning beauty. With a big heart and the sweetest gracefulness about her, she is such a joy to everyone that meets her. We’re just so grateful for these two.

Rustic wedding venue at Sydenham

We love that Christina and Ethan chose the same venue for their engagement session as their upcoming wedding this year! Sydenham Ridge is a gorgeous rustic Ontario wedding venue that is one of our favourites! And while Sydenham is known for it’s iconic rustic weddings (and that stunning ceremony tree which we adore!!), you need to see how gorgeous this place is in winter, too! Matched with Christina and Ethan, this wintry session is an absolute dream. And we have a feeling that their contagiously happy engagement session is just a hint of all the joy to be had at their Sydenham wedding this June!
