He said… it was love. She agreed! | King Edward Hotel

Some people said Nina and Paul were destined to be married one day – and when I say “some people,” I mean Paul. They had been dating for almost 8 years when we met up with this lovely couple for their engagement shoot. The first thing Paul told us was that since he was 17 years old he’d known she was the one.

Nina and Paul met during high school and continued together at Queens University. In addition to their growing love for each other, they also both developed a great appreciation for the opera. So it was only fitting that Paul decided to propose during an intermission of what has become their most beloved opera – Fidelio.

We had the opportunity to photograph Paul & Nina’s wedding and from the luminous glow that seemed to connect from her eyes to his smile – this moment was everything they’d been dreaming it would be.

Nina wore a beautiful Monique L’huillier designer gown with so much intricate detail, we had to photograph it from multiple angles to do it justice. She paired the gown with some Oscar de La Renta peep toe heels and Swarovski jeweled accents. Nina’s maid of honor wore a purple Badgley Mischka gown which matched the groomsmen’s color coordinated socks perfectly. The rest of Nina’s best girl’s donned their own choice of gowns which made for some very fun and fresh bridal party images.

The reception was held inside the luxurious Vanity Fair Ballroom at the King Edward Hotel, located in the heart of downtown Toronto’s financial district. The room was exquisitely decorated with flowers by Betty Shin (Avenue Flower) and lighting by one of the top wedding coordinators, Donna Jordan. Guests of the newlyweds – including several relatives who traveled from as far as Sweden and Norway – danced the night away to the rousing songs of Sensation. The band was a huge hit – the only problem was trying to convince the guests to leave the dance floor and return to their meals before they were taken away!

Nina & Paul – we are so honored to have shared in your special day. Thank you so much for including us and again, Congratulations!
