Toronto Wedding

Amanda + Rob
{Avenue Banquet Hall Vaughan Ontario Wedding Photography}


This will always be a memorable wedding for me! It was the race against the rain! It was calling for rain all day but magically  held off  till the night! Couldn't have asked for a better overcast day! We ended up at Eaton Hall which was perfect location for their photo session, lots of beautiful spots and we had the place to ourselves!

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Romantic, Unique, and Sparkly!

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: Our First Look (cried like a baby), having our photos done at a location we really liked and getting ready with my girls in the morning.
Groom: Definitely seeing Amanda for the first time (I was so nervous)…. And of course the food!

Best wedding related decision: Taking a chance on having our photos done at a place that we did not have a permit for. The location was perfect and we had the whole place to ourselves. Got all the photos done in less than 1 hour and before the rain started!

Favourite detail: Everything! We put some much effort and thought into all the details. We wanted everything to be perfect and memorable. Although I think I went a bit overboard with adding in everything from Pinterest! 

Advice for future brides & grooms: Plan and book things in advance. Majority of the time prices go up every year, so you may save money by booking early.  

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? I probably would have invited only close friends and family to the ceremony. There were way too many people in a small space it was very overwhelming. 

Best surprise of the day: The number of people who showed up for the ceremony! They had to add in extra rows of chairs to accommodate everyone.

Jennifer + Graeme
{Casa Loma Toronto Ontario Wedding Photography}

This wedding was such a treat to photograph! I have known Graeme since high school and also photographed his brother's wedding (and lots of family photo sessions following!). It's been years since I have photographed a Casa Loma wedding, and Lindsay was able to join me for this one too making it even more exciting! This day was without a doubt the HOTTEST day of the year, and the couple and their wedding party rocked it despite us all sweating buckets! Casa Loma has got to be one of the most stunning wedding venues ever and paired with an amazing couple made this such a great day to photograph!

Danielle + David
{Malaparte Toronto Ontario Wedding Photography}

Photographing a wedding day for any couple is heartwarming, but when it's an old friend from over two decades ago, it's super extra special! I had the best day following Danielle and her handsome boys around downtown Toronto for their lovely wedding celebration.

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Romantic summer downtown Toronto wedding !

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: the ceremony with all our family and friends, our son actually walked down the aisle!! Taking photos around the city and stealing a quick moment alone before being introduced into the reception
Groom: getting Ethan (our son) ready in his outfit, our first glance, dancing the night away

Best wedding related decision:  our venue was amazing!

Favourite detail: the flowers by Pocket of Posies 

Advice for future brides & grooms: we got the advice from our officiant that once the wedding gets started it's like a train, once it starts in motion you can't stop it so don't stress just go with the flow. The other piece of advice is to try to steal a few minutes just for yourselves as newly weds before the chaos and fun of the night pull you in different directions

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? I would have splurged for the bubbly!

Best surprise of the day: Ethan walked down the aisle! We weren't sure that was going to work out!

Anything else you'd like to add: Our cake was incredible, so beautiful and so incredibly delicious we were so happy to have left overs!

Jennifer + Bill
{Balzac's Coffee Roaster Toronto Ontario Wedding Photography}

I always look forward to photographing weddings at Balzac's Coffee in the Distillery District. This cute little cafe sets the tone for a warm, cozy and intimate evening celebrating love. Jennifer and Bill chose beautiful decorations to add their personal touch to the space. I really enjoyed photographing this union...and definitely teared up when their son wiped away tears during the vows!
