Sam and Rob’s wedding at The Doctor’s House in Kleinburg was full of understated, timeless elegance — black suits and black bridesmaids dresses, a simple white cake, and all white flowers for bouquets and centrepieces.
Getting ready at the Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton Bolton
Just a short jaunt from The Doctor’s House, the Hampton Inn was a convenient spot for the wedding party to get ready for the day ahead. Immediately upon arriving in the parking lot, I spotted the wedding dress hanging in the window and snapped a shot from outside. Once inside, I saw my favourite wedding makeup artist Justine, from Violet Noir Artistry, hard at work making everyone look beautiful. Sam’s meticulous planning paid off — the matching robes and elegant accessories all photographed extremely well.
Wedding ceremony at The Doctor’s House chapel
It was a hot, humid, and also rainy day. Before the ceremony, while dodging raindrops, Sam and Rob did their first look, punctuated by Sam “icing” the groomsmen with Smirnoff Ice, followed by showing off her Winnipeg Jets garter as a surprise to Rob (he’s a big fan, being from Winnipeg). Not knowing what the weather would hold for us, we fired off some formal photos of the wedding party before heading inside for the ceremony. Although the grounds of the venue are small, they’re well kept and quite lush during the summer. After the brisk ceremony, Sam and Rob stopped in the aisle for an iconic kissing photo, followed by the traditional ringing of the church bell.
Wedding reception at The Doctor’s House
Sam and Rob went all out with the white florals, adorning every surface with beautiful white blooms in the Garden Room at The Doctor’s House. I took a few moments to make some quick prints on my Fuji Instax Link Wide printer so that the bride and groom would have a cute souvenir to take home right away. Once the party got started, Sam did a quick outfit change and emerged from the bridal suite, bubble gun in hand, showering the guests and reception hall in a sea of thousands of bubbles.
