James & Hannah // Bellamere Winery Wedding

I know I am a little late with all my blogging lately, but better late than ever hey?! So the Bellamere Winery Wedding is being blogged!

Hannah and James met one day at church. They hit it off! They fell and love and James proposed!! They were married on a chilly, cloudy Friday! I am sure there was a lot of buzzing and excitement in the Doner household! Hannah was getting married!!!

They said their beautiful vows at Bellamere Winery.I have dreamed for a long time to shoot a wedding at Bellamere. It is such a beautiful venue. The rustic look with elegant features makes for not only gorgeous photos, but allows for such an elegant feel!  So when Hannah messaged me, I was ecstatic!

Watching their ceremony was like watching something right out of a movie. Everything was absolutely stunning. HER DRESS! It had so much detail in it! Her invitations had the gold foil! It by far was one of my favourite wedding invitations to date! Her Bellemere Winery Wedding was one for the books. The entire grounds had so much beauty! The line of trees was stunning for couple photos! Although it was chilly and cloudy, the bridal party were such a blast! The guys were just full of entertainment for the day!

It was truly a pleasure and honour to capture this stunning day!

Thank you Hannah and James! ♡

"Absolutely in love with our pictures!!!"

"I love my photos so much!

It's amazing! Even though there was hardly any snow for my winter wedding, Lydia still managed to capture some gorgeous off season shots of our big day! I'm absolutely in love with our pictures and we've received so many compliments from family and friends. When I was planning, one of the most common pieces of wedding advice I got from friends was "make sure you get a good photographer" and I'm so glad I listened!!"

"It's worth it alone for the memories"

Lydia was truly amazing! We have never had our photos taken professionally, and she coached us through the whole thing. We have now received our photo gallery back and just breath taking! In tears looking at how beautiful they are! Would definitely recommend using her to capture any occasion! It’s worth it alone for the memories we have from our experience!

- Nicole & Jesse

"The BEST hands down"

Lydia is the BEST. Hands down. From doing pictures for our first pregnancy, to our engagement pictures, to our wedding; Lydia was along for the ride, and captured our love story and family perfectly. We love you so much! Thank you endlessly for everything!!!

"I knew I loved her"

After a very hectic wedding planning process, My husband and I never actually met Lydia in person before she shot our wedding. The minute she showed up I felt like I already knew her, and she made us all feel so at ease. Our wedding pictures are absolutely stunning, I still tear up when I look at them because Lydia really did such an amazing job capturing the whole day and all it’s special moments. I would 10/10 recommend Lydia to literally anybody for any occasion!

"She captured them perfectly"

Lydia captured the best moments during our shoot, we really wanted natural expressions and she captured them perfectly with our 3 boys. We love seeing their personalities shine in our photos!
