This cozy day at the Hart House on the University of Toronto campus was a blustery one but Brit and Justin didn’t let that get them down! They chose to do a first look (which was preceded by a ‘first touch’ – check out the cute shot of them on either side of the door!) which allowed us to really maximize as much natural light as possible for their portraits, which was key because their ceremony was scheduled to finish after sunset. This meant we could use every nook and cranny in the Hart House and it also allowed the newlyweds to enjoy their full cocktail hour and say hello to all of their guests! I love that Brit totally embraced the Hogwarts feel of the great hall where we had the reception and even organized her seating chart after the four large tables from Harry Potter! The candlelit tables and huge wood burning fireplace at the end of the hall really made this a cozy and intimate reception. Congratulations to Brit & Justin!
Enjoy!

Where to begin with this wedding! Laura and Jordan’s wedding was so stunning and such a pleasure to be a part of! Some of my favourite wedding vendors were involved and together, with Laura at the helm of the planning process, her vision for her big day came to life and it was even more amazing than I imagined it would be. The florals by Blush & Bloom were, as usual, to die for, and Elise at Creative-E made an amazing chalkboard that was custom designed with details related to Laura and Jordan’s life together (it now hangs above their couch at home- what a perfect wedding keepsake!) Dawna Boot and Ladylyn Gool worked their magic and provided the girls with flawless hair and makeup. Laura got ready at her aunt and uncle’s house since it is a short drive away from the Cambridge Mill, but she made sure to bring along some pieces from her own home to make her getting ready process her own. Large rooms with lots of natural light gave us so many opportunities for beautiful photos before we left for the Mill. After their ceremony, we headed over to Mill Race park for some photos against the old stone archways, and the sun even poked out for a few minutes! The highlight of the evening was definitely the speech by maid of honour Kelly, who is Laura’s ‘little big sister.’ She wrote and performed a song for Laura and Jordan, and even rapped a few verses without faltering once! Laura and Jordan- you two are such an amazing couple and I wish you the very best as Mr & Mrs!

Check out the list below the photos to see all of the amazing vendors who contributed to the big day!

Enjoy!
