The word sunshine might not be bright enough to describe Melissa's personality and the size of the smiles between these two! They just radiate love! They get one another and are happy to simply be in each other's company. We met at Riverbend Inn last fall after going back and forth a few times with suggestions of wineries and pretty spots in Niagara on the Lake that were beautiful in and of their own right. We didn't want it to be too winery focused and wanted a beautiful property with some pretty architecture as well. Needless to say this was the perfect spot! I would shoot here again any day and the staff were incredibly accommodating and friendly. Their wedding is in just a handful of days from now and I am so excited to see their plans come to light. It's going to be beautiful!
We've been in and out of Niagara a ton lately - winery engagements are a thing this fall! If you love to spend a Sunday afternoon strolling through vineyards and tasting some of the various wines our Niagara has to offer, than maybe this is for you!
“Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.”
― Ernest Hemingway
We love this venue! Gracewood mansion at Kurtz Orchard in Niagara-on-the-Lake is one of our favourite wedding venues to photograph at! It is simply elegant, natural, romantic and stunning for photo locations. Sami and Neil had the loveliest day there! There is something very intimate and personal about having access to an entire property all your own for the day. The mansion, the grounds, the tented reception area. Its all yours for the day! Your guests can meander the grounds and enjoy the sunshine and beauty of the vineyards and orchards. It's perfect!
