Soft snow fell on a chilly winter day as Karine and Dave celebrated their engagement.  Celebrated the decision to announce to the world that they are together a team, a sweet, romantic team that will hold hands and walk into the future  – together. They laugh easily, and there is no need to ask them to cuddle or kiss; it is just something they do as a natural extension of their happiness.

Karine and Dave – you two are simply fabulous, we loved spending time with you and capturing this exciting part of your story.  Each picture makes me smile; you two brought warmth to a cold Moncton winter day!!

    That photo shoot was more than extraordinary! You really capture our love! Thank you for taking such beautiful pictures of us!! It’ll make us sweet memories :)

There is something about the Unico Decor experience that leaves me excited after every visit; it could be the clean and elegant design of their store, the kind and professional staff, or the perfection, vision and passion of the creative director and owner Jason Roy, but each time I meet with him I am inspired.

I sat across his desk as we took a minute to talk about our beginnings, and if it was possible I fell a little bit more in love with the Unico experience, as he talked about starting his decorating and design career as a teenager, and how his dream became even more of a reality when they moved to their current location in Dieppe, Jason’s excitement grew as he gave me a tour of the room where the magic and arranging happens, and his passion was so clear as he talked about how creations and inspiration come to him. Jason’s passion and talent is infectious, and it was during the meeting that I knew Yorke Photography simply must work with Unico Decor on a project. We decided that we wanted to bring together a selection of our fellow wedding vendors to do a stylized wedding shoot; I couldn’t wait for our ideas to come together. We wanted the chance to work together as a team to create an elegant and contemperary wedding vignette, that would showcase some of our very favourite vendors, and allow us the chance to get creative during our pre-wedding season.

Matthew and I were humbled and inspired to collaborate with a host of these incredible wedding vendors from Moncton; this shoot wouldn’t have been possible without the help, generosity and inspiration of these local wedding businesses and their penchant for excellence. Thank you again for making our vision come alive:

The Decor: Unico Decor –
The gorgeous Gown: Bella Promessa-
Make up by the talented: Debby Clements –!
The delectable cakes were designed by: Cake it Studio –
The versatile and upscale location was: Royal Oaks-
The suave Tuxedo was from: Expresso Tuxedo –

I also want to take a moment to thank the fabulous models Karine and Dave -we will be showcasing their winter engagement next week on the blog, and I’ll share a little more about their story and cuteness. Until then, Karine and Dave -know that we couldn’t have done this without you; your love and sweetness were exactly what the shoot needed to come alive!

    That photoshoot was extraordinary! Dave and I had so much fun! Now we can’t wait for our real Big day <3

They laugh freely together, their hands, fingers, arms easily intertwine.  These pictures are a wordless story of how they love and of how they spent part of their first anniversary.

These two make marriage look easy, they are an adorable mix of realist and dreamer, and we couldn’t have asked for a better couple to photograph on a dreamily snow stippled winter day.  Julie and Jean-Luc came to us to celebrate their anniversary; the shoot was a perfect gift to each other because on your first anniversary you are supposed to receive a paper gift, and they chose pictures.

Julie and Jean-Luc – you two are incredible, it felt like we have known you for years, and we feel so privileged to help record this part of your life.  I can’t wait for you to see your beautiful prints – but here is a little reminder of how you held each other to celebrate your first year of marriage.

This little snuggle bug was just 14 days new when we photographed her, and she couldn’t have been any sweeter. From her cute little checks to her full head of hair, Maeve is just perfection.

It was adorable to watch her Mommy, Jillian, smile with pride when she was close to her new family – and my cheeks hurt from smiling when Shane said he could get lost in the moment just looking at her.

These two are such a fabulous parenting team, and they had a beyond beautiful baby; we are so excited to be photographing all the milestones of her first year!

    Ohh Maeve truly is a beautiful little baby. Thank you for sharing these precious pictures with those of us who know and love you all… hugs

From the moment we met Tyler and Stephanie, their connection was obvious.  We meet so many people in love, but this couple – what they share is really special.  Their modern day fairytale  began online, where they met on a dating website, after chatting online and with everything on paper looking perfect, they decided to meet.  In each other their expectations for love were not only met but exceeded, and they have been together ever since.  In her he sees a princess, and she can’t help but smile even when Tyler’s name is mentioned.

The morning of the wedding, Stephanie’s mind was whirring with wedding details, and she had a few butterflies in her stomach; her bridesmaids tried to break into her midmorning daydream by calling her name, but it wasn’t until they said Tyler’s name that she looked up and asked what they were talking about.  Just the mention of his name reaches her, grounds her, and makes her feel special.  Looking at Stephanie, I see a woman who knows without a doubt that she is loved – that she is special.

On a mild (for Moncton) spring morning, blessed with soft  sunlight, Tyler and Stephanie promised that their love and faith were ready and excited for what life would hold for them.

Tyler and Stephanie, your wedding was perfect and was so “you two”; we are happy to have met you and shared your day! From your sweet fairytale theme to the delicious pizza feast, your day was memorable and oh so fun!!  I hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather in Mexico while looking at these pictures!
