An unconventional wedding with art, soul, and of course some country rock vibes.

I am a photographer just outside the Toronto area. I photograph predominately weddings and families in the Kawartha Lakes, Durham Region. Small intimate weddings are something I love to shoot. A small wedding always captures a love story so well!

If you’re seeking unconventional wedding inspiration, the nuptials of Greg Keelor from Blue Rodeo and his bride Caolaidhe, an expert Falconer, are a must-see.

Their Ontario wedding was a truly unique celebration of love, art, soul, and country rock vibes. A mere glimpse into their unforgettable day that will leave you feeling inspired.

Greg Keelor and Caolaidhe’s nostalgic wedding day was held at their Homestead, located in the most scenic piece of land in Ontario. The couple’s retro charm was evident everywhere, bursting with art and instrument-filled spaces, all of which added a personal touch to their celebration. Each item had a story to tell, making it a unique and memorable experience for everyone.

The couple’s intimate ceremony began at 3:15 pm, a special number for Caolaidhe who had lost her father at that exact time ______. The pianist, who had been tuning this specific piano for over 30 years, played the classic “here comes the bride” melody. This piano has also been featured on many Blue Rodeo albums as well as other well-know artist’s albums.

This ceremony reminded me why it’s important to stick to the roots of your relationship when it comes to celebrating love. A wedding should celebrate two people and everything that brought them together.
