When Mark married Mary, it was an ordinary but not so ordinary day. The sun came up, morning alarms went off, people went to work, some hit the snooze button and others gathered at the grooms parents farm house to celebrate the joining of two wonderful people.
We had the recent pleasure of visiting the splendid grandeur that is Old Montreal. Maria and Russell had their stunning venue at Le Place D'arms Hotel which is located next to the historic Notre-Dame Basilica. We love the old world charm this location presents and the majestic architecture that seems to envelope you while being there. We hope you enjoy some of the moments we captured of this great couple!
Anna & Sergio sure know how to pick some epic locations for a wedding! Starting with the old world charm of One King West to TIFF's favourite party spot Storys, everyone had an amazing time soaking up the love and good vibes. We hope you enjoy....
Cristina and Danny had the perfect day for their engagement shoot in Toronto's historic Distillery District.
It turned out to be 12 degrees in the middle of February!
We love the architecture of the old buildings and cobblestone roads and were able to capture some really great shots of the pair. We even found a lost dog along the way!
We can't wait to shoot their wedding in October.Take a peak at the shots below
Taryn & Greg
When we first met Taryn & Greg, we immediately knew that a lot of love, care and personalization was being put into their special day. From the smallest of rustic details, to the disco ball dance floor built by the brother of the bride, each part of the day was planned with love.
We headed to Royal Maples Estate for the ceremony and reception. Taryns brother was the officiant and her brother played ukulele as she walked down the aisle, making for a beautiful and intimate ceremony .
The reception was then held in a tent, backlit by a soft sunset and beautifully lit trees while Coriander Girl supplied the bridal bouquets and boutonnieres. Speeches were made, and dinner was served from a food truck!
Taryn and Greg had their first dance on the handmade outdoor dance floor as family and friends blew bubbles. Some seriously fun dancing then ensued making for an amazing night.
Amy and Jason met in law school hundred of kilometres away only to find that they both lived in the same area of each other. It is such that we shot at Alexander Muir Gardens, a beautiful place uptown where both grew up. Looking forward to shooting their wedding at the magical Casa Loma.
It's not often that we have the privilege to film a good family friends wedding. It brings a new level of excitement and meaning to the day as we not only know and care for the couple, but are also surrounded by family and friends.
Mallory & Colin were exactly this. Having known Mallory my whole life, I could not have been more excited to share in the occasion. It's also not often that you meet a couple quite like these two. Their love for each other is evident with each look and glance and is a raw and contagious joy.
Mallory is also by far one of the kindest, caring and genuine people you could ever meet. She and her sister, Jade, are the founders of the Dance Ability Movement - a program that creates an equal opportunity and inclusive space for all children to fall in love with dance. Together they have changed lives and raised awareness about individuals with special needs.
Their wedding day started at The Manor in Kettleby where the girls got ready. The boys later joined and a beautiful ceremony was held outside by the pond. Every aspect of the day had a personal touch. All of the vendors were friends and family, and the ceremony was officiated by Colin's grandpa. This made the day so much more intimate and true to the couple. The reception then followed and was filled with heartfelt speeches, dance performances from some of Mallory's first students and an amazing flashmob dance.
We hope you enjoy these moments from their special day :)
Nancy and Chris
Two of the sweetest people we have ever met and definitely meant for each other.
We started the day at the brides house for the getting ready portion accompanied by family and family abroad via FaceTime! The morning was calm, relaxed and full of personal and intimate moments.
After Red pocket money was exchanged, we were off to Kleinburg for the ceremony at the Doctors House. It was a beautiful reflection of the couple and the setting leant perfectly to the feel. Pictures were taken at the McMichael gallery and the bride and groom zoomed off in style in their Ferrari Spyder!
The reception was held at Hazelton Manor and was a fun fusion of Chinese and Portuguese traditions.
We hope you enjoy these moments from their day :)
With her parents house in Orillia as the backdrop, Elisa and Stefan tied the knot in a beautiful and intimate setting.
I first met Jenny and Brandon when I photographed their engagement shoot at Mentor College. They are high school sweethearts and today was their big day! After shooting the ceremony at Saint Josephs Church in Streetsville, we met up at Kariya Park where we enjoyed the natural scenery and snapped some pics of the bridal party. The reception was held at the Sheraton Toronto Airport Hotel and Conference Center and showcased their love of travel and dance! Tango anyone?
Emma and Geoff are both teachers and have a heart of gold. This was evident through out the day with loving family, friends and the best bridesmaids ever! The day day started at the Delta Markham and the ceremony/reception was held at the gorgeous Oakview Terrace in Richmond Hill. The grounds were perfectly designed with a cute chapel, a little pond and colourful landscaping everywhere!
The reception was held at The Venetian Banquet Hall and was a beautiful reflection of the couples love for each other and the love of their families.
Have you ever met a family, or two, that instantly make you feel extremely welcome, exude kindness and make you wish you could be adopted into it? Well, that's how we felt this past weekend at Dan and Andreas (Dandrea) wedding. Both sides of the family were some of the sweetest people we have ever had the pleasure of meeting and the bride and groom were no less amazing.
How great are these two? We had a perfect sunset and venue to take some pictures before their big day. The 100 acres that makes up Vector Equestrian is as beautiful as it spacious. Can't wait for the wedding at Berkley Church in Toronto!
One of my favourite things about Toronto is it's many different cultures that all co-exist happily together.
