Steph and I first met in grade school, then we both moved out of the area after grade nine and fell off each other's radar... Until... Many years later she emailed me out of the blue to discuss her wedding. I was so excited to hear from her.

As she told me more about her and Chris, and their daughter Evi, along with plans for their surprise wedding, I grew more and more excited to help. Keeping a secret is not my strong suit, but I managed and I can finally share this absolutely beautiful wedding.

Guests were invited for a first birthday party for adorable Evi, but upon arriving they learned there would be a wedding too.

It was a lovely day at Steph's parents' home, with the look and feel of the day inspired by the family cottage they love so much and a gorgeous pair of Kate Spade heels that sparked the colour scheme. They had hoped for something simple and casual but still pretty and fitting of a wedding. The backyard was completely transformed with simple rental furniture, gorgeous flowers by Settings, and guests enjoyed a gourmet catered barbecue.

This wedding was so much fun to be a part of, from start to finish. It was a day that truly reflected Steph and Chris, and their love for their family and friends, and their laid back personalities.

I hope you'll enjoy these pictures by Jenn Kavanagh Photography as much as I do.
