The Grand Chalet Wedding Milton
Laura and Keith had a splendid Grand Chalet wedding in Milton Ontario. The outstanding event space is full of character and the food is divine!
They were among the sweetest couple I ever had a chance to meet in my wedding photography career.
During our first consultation with the couple, I noticed that the love between them was apparent and I embraced the opportunity to document their best day.
It makes our job easier when the love between the bride and groom is so obvious. When that pure relationship exists, we, professional photographers, do not have to prompt the bride and groom into doing something unnatural but rather relaxed and observe the moments unfolding in front of our lenses.
The big day started with the boys visiting a John Deere dealership in Milton. Keith is a big John Deere fan and he and the groomsmen had a lot of fun in the morning of their wedding day.
I always recommend my couples to take a break on their big day in the something you really love. When that happens, we can capture beautiful candid photographs that the couple will cherish for many years to come.
Unfortunately, the decision to visit the dealership was spontaneous and the photographers were not aware of that.
Even today I regret missing such a huge opportunity to see the bridal party righting mini tractors. While the boys were enjoying themselves, we were photographing the beautiful bride's preparation at her parents' house in Milton.
We had the opportunity to take plenty of pictures of the beautiful bride, her parents, and various accessories. The couple mentioned that they were being M&M fans so I was photographing the rings resting on top of an M&M when I noticed a pillow with a rather touching embroidery. It was reading "Like friends, it's the old ornaments that mean the most". I sensed that was a family heirloom and I placed the pillow behind the wedding ring creating the most beautiful backdrop. After taking some pictures of the close family, we headed to the church for the wedding ceremony. This was one of the most emotional ceremony I have ever documented and I have to admit that even I teared up at times.
After the ceremony, the bride and groom, the wedding party and the photographers headed to the Livingston Park in a white limousine. We had a lot of fun in the park and we took advantage of the foliage of that beautiful October day. As it was getting cold, we left the park and headed to the venue. The atmosphere was fantastic and after beautiful grand entrance, the bride and groom had their first dance as a newlywed couple, followed by grace and several speeches, during the dinner.
The Grand Chalet is one of the best restaurants in Milton. It is a family operated business that cares about their clients and that is reflected in everything from the service, to the food quality, ambience and the genuine smiles of the waiters. The owner of the restaurant himself came to ask everyone how the food was and to tell the guests a few jokes. The food was absolutely delicious. The parking is spacious and the establishment boasts a splendid 4.5 stars on Google reviews. The event space was also voted the best banquet hall in Milton. Consider that the hall has over 30 years of experience in the hospitality industry and you know the brides and grooms are in good hands.
