Jennifer and Michael’s Courtyard Restaurant Winter Wedding was only last week!  If you remember what that Saturday was like, you’ll remember that it snowed. And it snowed. After that, it snowed some more. If you’re going to have a winter wedding, this is actually a great thing and if you’re going to get married in a cozy spot like the Courtyard Restaurant, it’s even better!

The getting ready started at Jennifer’s parents place in the west end and then we met downtown for the first round of couple photos at Planet Coffee. This was where Jennifer & Michael had their first date and happens to be right across from the Courtyard.  It’s also across the street from the Third Floor York Studio but this really isn’t about me now is it?

We eventually made our way back to the Courtyard to meet up with the ever awesome Miranda Fleming to get things on track for the ceremony. The perfect final touch for the ceremony was the delivery by Alan Viau and music by Kimberley Dunn, followed by a Courtyard style dinner.  If all winter weddings were this great, everyone would be fighting to have them.
