When Erin & Jake planned their Pearle Hotel & Spa wedding celebration, they wanted to hire a local team of wedding photographers & videographer to capture their day.
Matt and I live 5 minutes away from this venue, and we are familiar with all the best spots nearby. As downtown Burlington can get very busy during Summertime, we know where to take you to have a little bit of the waterfront just for yourself. Venue boasts a great backdrop for all-year-round weddings, and several great back-up spots in case of rain or freezing cold.
Getting ready | Family homes
Erin was getting ready at her parents home in Burlington, while Jake was getting ready at their house just 5 minutes away. We started with some detail and robe shots, followed by champagne toast. Erin popped a champagne like a pro, and admitted that this is not her first rodeo. After that we knew we were in for a fun-filled day.
Wedding Ceremony | Pearle Hotel & Spa, Burlington, ON
The ceremony space is a dream for couples looking for a simple space filled with a natural light, overlooking lake Ontario. It can accommodate up to 300 guests.
The ceremony was the pinnacle of the day, the moment when Erin and Jake committed before their loved ones to spend their lives together. As they exchanged heartfelt vows, their voices brimming with emotion, we photographed every detail: The joyful tears in their eyes, the affectionate way they held hands, the proud smiles of parents in the front row.
During the initial meeting, I ask my couples how they feel in front of the camera. While Erin & Jake have playful and confident personality, they were still looking for someone who can guide them through the entire photoshoot, pick the nicest spots for their wedding photos and provide props.
Coctails & Wedding Reception | The Edgewater Room, Pearle Hotel & Spa
If the ceremony was the heart of the wedding, the reception was the soul. Laughter, cheers, dancing, and merriment infused the splendid ballroom of the Edgewater Room. We strived through our photography to encapsulate the energy, the passion, and the romance of every moment.
The way Erin and Jake lost themselves in their first dance, gazing into one another’s eyes, oblivious to the crowd around them. The hilarious, heartfelt speeches from the maid of honor and best man that had the guests roaring. The crazy dance moves of Erin’s cousins who tore up the dance floor. Every detail revealed the fun, celebratory spirit of the day.
As husband and wife photographers, we strive to capture authentic moments. Natalia has a knack for putting couples at ease, allowing real emotions to shine. Our cinematic editing highlights significant occasions like reciting vows or that first dance displaying newlywed affection. By focusing on these meaningful details, we encapsulate the essence of romantic love so couples can forever revisit the joyful memories we preserve.
