My love affair with LaSalle Banquet Centre continues! I first photographed a wedding here back in 2017 for Danira and Jacob, and I’ve been obsessed ever since. This beautiful pavilion is close to home for me, has endless spots for great photos, and has an awesome covered terrace that is sometimes used for ceremonies, cocktail hour, and even dinner. I love when I have weddings here, because it has a mix of everything I love about venues! The classic French style windows give it such an elegant feel, while the covered pavilion is such a handy back up plan on rainy days. Tons of tall, mature trees make it easy to find great light at any time of day, and their reception room is bright and airy.
I had the pleasure of documenting Melissa and Brodie’s big day at LaSalle on Saturday, and immediately wanted to share some images from it! They had a big wedding party (6 and 8 a side!) that are such an amazing group of people. So welcoming and attentive! You could tell they were all super psyched to be standing along M&B for their special day. When I have a really big group like this, I love trying to organize a group photo that is more than just the standard lineup. We don’t always have time for it, or a great spot to do it, but in this case, Warehouse 84 had set up an amazing lounge area on the terrace. I knew it would be perfect for what I always call the ‘Vogue shot’ or likely more accurately, the ‘Vanity Fair shot’ – which is reminiscent of Vanity Fair’s Hollywood edition layouts, with celebrities laid out across a full page spread in various seated, standing, or on the floor positions. It’s a great way to highlight a lot of people in one photo!
Anyway- onto the photos! Please see below for the group of folks who helped Melissa and Brodie bring their wedding vision to light. Special shoutout to Vivian Lyttle Events, who was running the show and pulled everything off without a hitch!
