Irene and Vincent had an absolutely picture perfect day!! Their ceremony wasn’t scheduled until later in the day, but we started at Irene’s house bright and early with a short tea ceremony and then had the whole afternoon for photos! Photography was very important to Irene & Vincent, and Irene provided me with detailed “inspiration sheets” for the many different locations she had scouted out for us to shoot at. However, like so many Saturdays this year the forecast called for rain and a few days before the wedding we had to re-evaluate our plans and come up with some new ideas… Union Station – no brainer!! The day kept getting better and better in terms of location and weather… by the time we got to Casa Loma the skies were blue as can be!
Shannon, my assistant for the day and I had a blast working with a couple who were SO into photographs and were up for all our crazy ideas and also had lots of their own. With so much time for photos & with such a willing bride and groom it’s no surprise we got some magazine worthy shots – this wedding will be featured in the upcoming issue of the Wedding Ring’s Bridal News magazine (available in January).
Attention to detail can make a whole wedding come together – especially when it comes to photographs. I’m sure you’ll notice all the amazing details in these photographs – the bridesmaid’s birdcage veils, the invitations, the wish tree, etc. All of these were made by the very talented Irene!! She just told me that she’s planning on opening her own Etsy online shop so once it’s up and running I’ll make a seperate blog post as I’m sure there’s plenty of brides-to-be drooling over some her details (I know I was!)
UPDATE: You can visit Irene’s Etsy store here
The theme of their wedding was taken from a story that says “an invisible red thread connects those destined to meet”
I asked them to bring an extra red ribbon left over from the bridesmaid’s dresses to tie in their theme to their photos
