You may remember Jordan & Laura from their 2014 engagement sessions shot in sunny California. Talk about a dream location! These two are lucky enough to call the sparkling ocean and those rolling hills their home. Let me tell you a bit about them! Laura, a thoughtful, generous, and admitted chocolate lover first caught Jordan’s eye back in their high school years. She was a total babe back then (I have seen the #tbt photos) and still is today. Jordan easily stole her heart with his laid back personality, perfect hair, and talented hockey skills. Together they are an outdoor loving, tea drinking, movie-going couple who are wildly photogenic (they seriously made our job easy)!
Alright, let’s jump into the wedding day! Laura began her day at her parent’s home surrounded by her closest gal pals and a talented team of hair and makeup artists. The house was surprisingly calm (for a wedding morning). Laura couldn’t wait to jump into her gorgeous wedding gown by Berta Bridal and share a special ‘first look’ with her dad. Family means the world to Laura, and she means the world to them. You can literally see her mom and dad’s looks of admiration and honour throughout the wedding day. It was enough to melt this Italian girl’s heart!
Jordon’s morning preparations began with friends at Caesar’s Windsor. As per usual, his hair and style were on point. We loved his skull socks and Hugo Boss suit. The guys shared some laughs before heading to the Art Gallery of Windsor for Jordan and Laura’s ‘first look’ and wedding party portraits. Their first look was adorable (see below), and their glamourous wedding party was super supportive of the happy couple. They soon after headed to their ceremony and reception venue, Mastronardi Estate Winery, to celebrate becoming Mr. and Mrs. Jordan Nolan! After a delicious meal and gorgeous desserts, Jordan and Laura snuck out with us for a few sunset shots. We were back before the friends and family kicked off the party with an impromptu conga line.
Jordan & Laura, you guys are the real deal. One thing we can say for certain, you two genuinely cherish and love each other with that “through thick and thin” type of love. You get each other in a very special way, and we are tremendously happy you have found your forever home in each other. Thank you for bringing us into your lives, and for choosing us to capture these special memories. Go Kings!

“I have been following Josh and Arica’s work for many years, and have always dreamed of having them as our engagement and wedding photographers. I had always admired their ability to capture every single couples love so beautifully and effortlessly, so I immediately reached out to Manifesto Photography after Jordan proposed. Josh & Arica were an absolute dream to work with. They are both so kind and professional, and the genuine love that they have for photography truly shows in their work! Jordan and I lived in California throughout the majority of our engagement, yet we still felt that Josh & Arica were so dedicated to providing us with the best experience possible. They were constantly communicating with us and there for us when we needed them or had any questions! We really can’t say enough amazing things about Manifesto Photography. From the engagement shoots to the wedding day, and everything in between, Josh & Arica were a pleasure to work with. These photos are so special to us, and we will cherish them forever. They exceeded our expectations throughout this whole process, and I couldn’t be happier that we chose Manifesto Photography.” – Laura & Jordan Nolan
