I had the pleasure of capturing the beautiful wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Taylor Raddysh at one of my favourite venues, Whistle Bear. With its stunning golf course, serene waterfalls, lush forest, and captivating open-roof ceremony space, it served as the perfect canvas for their love story. As the day transitioned into evening, the breathtaking sunset added a touch of natural beauty to the celebration. Inside, the reception space was transformed by Rachel A. Clingen’s beautiful floral ceiling installation, adding a touch of sophistication and romance to the atmosphere.
What made this wedding elegant and timeless was the couple’s choice of an all-white theme. White roses filled the ceremony and reception and of course the gorgeous bouquets. The bridesmaids, dressed in white silk dresses, looked simply radiant, while the groomsmen looked incredibly dapper in their sleek black tuxedos, a classic combination that never goes out of style. What truly stole the show (or should I say, ceremony) was their adorable pup, sporting a bowtie as groomsman, who couldn’t resist making a sweet and unexpected appearance during the ceremony!
But the true magic of the day lay in T and Tay’s love story. Their journey began when they were just kids, knowing each other since they were 8 and 10 years old. Their friendship blossomed into a deep and enduring connection, eventually leading to them officially becoming a couple in 2018. According to their families, the sparks between them were evident right from the start. The proposal, which took place against the scenic backdrop of Blue Mountain, was witnessed by both of their brothers and their spouses, making it a moment filled with love and support.
Originally from Ontario and now residing in Chicago, Taylor and Taylor brought together friends and family from all corners of the United States, Canada and beyond for their special day. Family comes first with this couple and you could see it in the beautiful emotions shared between them throughout the day. I had a difficult time narrowing down my favourite images to share with you, there’s so many more precious memories in the full gallery, this really is just a “peek”!
T and Tay, I am truly grateful you chose me to capture your special day. It was a celebration filled with love, laughter, and those precious moments that will be treasured for a lifetime. Here’s to a future as beautiful as the memories you’ve created on this unforgettable day. Cheers to the newlyweds, Mr. and Mrs. Taylor Raddysh!
