It’s not everyday that high school sweethearts are able to make their love go the distance but Amanda and Pat did just that – they met and fell in love in high school and through the years, were able to make their relationship work and started planning the wedding of their dreams last year. After searching for that perfect venue, they decided to hold their big day at The Manor in Kettleby, Ontario. The venue’s large property offers green grounds and small ponds that provided gorgeous backdrops for magical photos! Inside the venue, the couple decided on a gold and burgundy colour palette with hints of navy blue. Lucky for us, Olive Photography was on hand to capture all of the pretty details!

Dressed in silk robes, Amanda and her bridesmaids started off the day popping champagne and sharing laughs.

To celebrate where their love story began, the couple had a few photos taken in the hallways of a school, followed by a beautiful photo session along The Manor‘s vast grounds.

The reception was absolutely sparkling! The large, bright room was set in gold and white. The head table wore a shimmering gold tablecloth and was filled with abundant florals and plenty of candles. Guests sat in gold-framed chairs while eating dinner on gold-rimmed plates that encircled a gold-wrapped centerpiece designed by Hillcrest Florist. The tables hugged a large dance floor in the center of the room, so everyone could watch Amanda and Pat as they danced together as a married couple for the first time. Soon after, guests joined them on the floor and they had a wonderful night dancing with the newlywed high-school sweethearts!
