'Kay, I'm sitting here at 11:00 p.m. (again) try to get through the slew of proofs and orders and albums that I need to get out before Christmas and this little gem pops up on my email. The message was sent by Mark, one of my grooms from last year. The maid of honour at his and Fran's wedding, (Tiffani), was married to Stuart this fall in an amazing ceremony attended by only the 4 of them. It was a huge honour for me to be part of both of these special couple's weddings:

From Mark:
You and Jenn did such a great job with Tiff and Stuart's wedding. You really made the day special. Fran and I have been enjoying your new web site, especially the music. We often find ourselves listening to your site and emailing one another. You have had such a positive impact on our lives. Thanks from both of us.

By the way, I like the music on my website, too. Interestingly, I was told that 80% of web surfers hate music on websites but I seem to get lots of positive comments on it, hmmmmmm.

Anyway, enough Blog-time...back to work!

Ciao for now!

Congratulations to my "Beautiful Brides"

I know, I know, I'm a bad blogger. It's been a while but October was, hands-down, my busiest month this year. I completed something like 24 photos shoots before the month was out! Since I haven't kept up with telling you all about the fabulous weddings I've covered in the past two months, I'll spend some of the winter talking about/showing you:

-the bride who walked down the aisle to AC/DC's, "She's Got Balls"
-the couple in New York who got married at a gorgeous turn-of-the-century mansion (a wedding that I was just on time for because we were detained at the border)
-the groom and groomsman in kilts who looked at me like I was nuts because I asked them to squat on a set of stairs (I forgot about what they wear-or don't wear- underneath)
-the amazing outdoor wedding in the rain at Rockwood Conservation area
-a surprisingly intimate and touching (I cried) service with only 4 people in attendance in a Catholic church that can hold over 600 people
-the supermodel-esque bride with the extreme passion for all thing trekky (Yup, that's Star Trek, guys), and on and on.

For now, I wanted to congratulate two of my bride's who were award honourable mentions in the 2007 Beautiful Bride Cover Search for the "Your Wedding Portfolio" wedding planner.

Martha Foulds (on the left) was married to Ryan Carey at Whistlebear Golf Course on a gorgeous day in October 2005 . This wedding oozed class and Old Hollywood style. Funny thing with her entry is that she thought that she shouldn't even bother because there was no way she's win....hmmm. Anyway congratulations to Martha and Ryan who are expecting their first baby any day now.

Colleen Haney (nee Cressman) on the right, married Craig Haney this past July on the hottest day of the year at the Millrace Park in Historic Galt, Ontario. Colleen, along with many other of my beautiful brides (and grooms) from the past year, was also featured in other locations throughout the magazine.

Though I still have more weddings before 2006 comes to an end, I'm able to take a peak back and marvel at the array of events we've covered and the amazing new friends I've made this year.

Stay turned, I'll tell you all about it through the chilly months.
