Candace & Andrew in Toronto at the Steam Whistle Brewery with Kim Magee Photography

I was so excited for this wedding.  Not only was it the first one of 2015, it was with a bride & family who I have gotten to know over many years.  Plus they had a new venue for me – the fabulous Steam Whistle Brewery, downtown Toronto, a spectacular church that I hadn’t been to either and to top it all off, it was a beautiful, sunshiney day.

The day started at the fabulous Intercontinental Hotel.  And LOVE was certainly there.   I saw it as soon as I met up with the groom.   A little tear in his eye after reading a note from the bride.  The bride & family & friends were treated to the Presidental Suite!  I was greeted by all those pretty dresses hanging in the windows.  Don’t you love those creme and pink dresses?   Curling irons rolling, hair spray flying and champagne chilling! A note arrives from the groom and all the girls gathered around to watch.  Giggles & tears.   Ahhh, I’m such a sucker for a wedding day. I never tire of it.

The church was UH-mazing.  St. Paul’s Basilica. Stunning.  Perfectly suited to Candace & Andrew.  We headed to the Distillery District for a few pictures after, but wow that wind was channelling thru those buildings!   We headed off to the Brewery for a little downtime, got warmed up and took a few more pictures in Roundhouse Park where we took some picture with some very handsome mounted police!  One of them even offered his horse to Candace.  This was a very emotional moment for her, as she always wanted wedding photos with her horse!  So it wasn’t hers, but she still got to hug a horse in her beautiful gown :)   Thank you to that wonderful police officer.  You really put another lovely hilight in her day.

So it was my first time at the Steam Whistle.  I must say, what a great place for a wedding.  Kind of an outside, back yard style and GREAT FOOD!  I mean, GREAT FOOD!  Can I say that again? Great Food!  I would so recommend this place for any bride.  Huge area for cocktails & reception, separate area for dinner and you can have tours of the brewery.  And places for pictures too! It was simply COOL.    It was a great night with, as I said, a fabulous meal, some hilarious speeches!  I wish I could remember your name, friend of the groom in the pretty red & white dress, you were hilarious.  Need more of you at weddings!  Candace, I’ve watched your family party and what a hoot they are and wondered how Andrew’s family would be.  Then I saw the vodka flow.  I knew what the rest of the night would be like.  :)

It was a wonderful evening.  Thank you, Candace & Andrew for having me photograph your wedding day.  It was truly an honour.

The DJ didn’t believe me when I said things will get crazy when he plays Meatloaf’s, Paradise by the Dashboard Light.  I’ve watched it danced to before by this family and I knew the floor would be shakin’ and quite a show going on!   DJ Floh Back Productions was a fantastic DJ and I would highly recommend them in Toronto area.

Bring on Spring!

Sorry everyone it has been a looooong time since I posted on here.  Last summer I was having a hard time loading images to the blog and it drove me nuts.  I consider myself pretty computer literate, but I was fighting it constantly.  Why do these programs go from easy to “this will be easier”, only in reality to make things harder?  I don’t have to figure out the new!   Yikes.  So, since things have changed again, I will try again!  But don’t count on it! lol    But you can also see me on Facebook all the time.  www.facebook.com/kimmageephotography.  And please remember, you don’t have to be a facebook member to see a business page.   Anyway, on with spring and a new season!

My first wedding of the year, also the first day of spring.   What a great day they chose for a new life.  Candace & Andrew had a wonderful wedding day in Toronto at the Steam Whistle and you will be seeing more to come soon.  But let’s start here.  Spring. Wedding season. Love.  Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Romanowski.

Katelyn & Kenny – Wedding at South Pond Farms with Kim Magee Photography

It was another beautiful wedding day South Pond Farms near Bethany, Ontario. Katelyn & Kenny lucked out on some of our best weather of the summer! They were a gorgeous bunch of women, and the men, well, they were looking mighty dandy in those jeans, vests & boots! Yowza! Such a great group! They even took a hike across the field – and I mean a LONG way- across the fields to come upon some beautiful blue flowers to highlight those pretty dresses! Katelyn had a slight hitch in flowers not making it to the event, but no worries, Danielle & the team at South Pond rounded up some new bouquets that looked lovely! I was impressed, Katelyn took it all in huge stride. I always tell my brides, don’t worry about things like that, that may happen. It can usually be fixed!
I am so in love* with these pictures of Katelyn & Kenny – just in love with them! But I have to say, a couple of the images that stand out the most, are of Mom dancing with her son & of Dad giving his speech. Such pride & love showing in both parents! I think all of you are very lucky!
Katelyn & Kenny, thank you for having me capture your day! This is just a tiny taste…about 500 more to come!

Summer & Chris at Elmhirst Resort with Kim Magee Photography

It was a beautiful blue sky day for Summer & Chris’s wedding at Elmhirst Resort on Rice Lake. Check out the great idea that was put together for the aisle!!! Walk through your friends and family – be encircled by them!!! The flowers were wild & seasonal- so beautiful – by Helen Knibb from Ironwood Farm near Peterborough. So many unique little bits throughout the wedding for charm & simplicity. And then there was the ring bearer, who decided it was way too hot and and he wasnt going down the aisle. And if he did, he certainly wasnt going to do it with a shirt on!
Summer & Chris, thank you for having me there. Enjoy!
OH, and btw, wasn’t Summer HOT in that dress!!! WOWSA! Just had to add that in!
