Winter Wedding at Grand Luxe

If a couple is local, I like to meet them in person before booking their wedding. Its important to me to get a feel for them, their style and sorry to use this overused term but their vibe before committing to working together. Vanessa, Chris and I didn't meet in person but we had a phone call and from that very first call, I was hooked! I loved that they both knew exactly what they wanted, were willing to compromise to support what the other wanted and were both able to communicate that clearly to me. In conjunction with that, they respected my input and were very willing to work as a team; A dream couple! Fast-forward past their awesome engagement photos at East Room to their winter wedding at multiple locations across Toronto. There is no 'right' way to do things and I'm sure you've heard me say this before but my absolute favourite is when a couple is unapologetic about what they want, work hard to make it happen and then revel the experience in real-time. I cried at this wedding, I cried while editing the photos and I cried when I delivered the gallery. I love these two. I'm so happy for them and I'm selfishly thankful they're now in my world. Huge hearts. 

An incredible team of talented people came together to make this wedding as beautiful as it was. Scroll down for more info (but enjoy the photos along the way!) Special thanks to my photography dream team: Juanito Aguil and Ryan H.
