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!
