Andrea and Paolo were married Oct 13, 2018 at St. Andrew’s church in Etobicoke. It was a lovely ceremony followed by a gorgeous photo session at Black Creek Pioneer Village. Let’s just say this day couldn’t have been more perfect. From the getting ready portion in the morning straight through until the end of the night. Black Creek did not disappoint with the fabulous fall colours and warm-ish weather. We had such a great time with Andrea and Paolo – they were literally non-stop smiles, laughter and full out singing. That type of energy and joy is what makes us truly LOVE what we do.
PLUS: If you are looking for a great photo location – consider, Black Creek. Great textures, nice mix of buildings and nature and overall just such a fabulous and calm location for photos.
Now – we see ALOT of receptions and venues… but our jaws dropped when we walked into the Terrace and saw the amazing decor!!! (check it out below)
Isn’t it nice when you get perfect weather for your wedding day?
It’s been a summer full of scorching hot days and pouring rain, but the stars seemed to align for Olivia and Adam.
Starting at the very house that Olivia grew up in, surrounded by the couple’s friends and family, we had a blast with both the bride and groom before doing an emotional reveal on a quiet side street in downtown Toronto.
From there, the day took us to scenic Kleinburg, home of the doctor’s house – which features the most adorable rustic wedding chapel, and beautiful grounds to shoot on.
Places like Klienburg really let our same day edits shine, as they give us lots of opportunities to create unique, beautiful moments that let our couples be themselves, while also giving us great shots for you to show off to your guests later that night. Check out the Sneak Peek and Same Day Video edit below!
Without a doubt, the best part of photographing weddings in Toronto is the multiculturalism. This summer we had the pleasure of photographing Christina and Justin’s traditional Korean ceremony, held at the gorgeous party room in their condo – could this get any more “Toronto?”. It was an awesome affair with their closest friends and family, wonderful outfits, hilarious games, karaoke, and gorgeous weather. Take a peek!

Congratulations to Hatice and Ryan who were married at City Hall in Toronto and then had an amazing party at Cluny Bistro in Distillery. We loved every minute of shooting this intimate affair. Surrounded by close family and friends, this wedding truly had it all. The wedding had a rustic French vintage theme because of the couples love for Paris and old movies. There was so much attention to detail – from old tea cups which they made into candles, tarnished silver platters, rustic pails for the flowers with soft pink and white flowers. AND… CHECK OUT the groom’s jacket – wow! Love Love Love!!!! A perfect compliment to the bride’s Galina wedding dress.

Décor/Linens: “Chairman Mills for the linen and décor was handmade and shopped around vintage stores and online. Our theme is rustic vintage French because I love Paris and old movies and am a mushy romantic at heart. You’ll see elements of vintage with the old tea cups which we made into candles, tarnished silver platters, rustic with use of pails for the flowers, romance with the soft pink and white flowers flower, French because of the venue (Cluny Bistro) and pops of colour. My friend was sweet enough to hand make our seating chart which is an old frame which she painted and glued a new backing”.

Where do we start with the awesome-ness that is Verena and Bruce! These two got married on July 28, 2018 and boy do these two know how to throw a party 🙂 From the gorgeous backdrop of Edwards Gardens to the heartfelt ceremony to the fabulous dance party at the Parkview Manor – there was not a single dull moment.
We also did a same day edit for these two – and wow!

Congratulations to Jaana and Paul on a stunning summer wedding at Willow Springs Winery in Stouffville, Ontario.

Stacie & Brendan had the most beautiful wedding at Holland Marsh Winery. Stacie was the MofH at Andrea & Russ’ wedding and we were thrilled to be asked to shoot her spring wedding this year. We could not have asked for a more stunning day. The sun was shining and there was no trace of that crazy wind storm from the night before. We started off with Stacie and the girls getting ready in an airbnb near the winery. From the moment we saw that dress and shoes – we knew this wedding was going to be rockin’
We then headed to Holland Marsh Winery for the reveal, photos, ceremony and reception. Everything about the grounds was spectacular. It was a photographers dream shooting in stunning surroundings with a bride and groom whose love is truly felt by everyone around them. Congratulations Stacie and Brendan!
