Opposites are known to attract, and Nicole + Daniel are no exception. Having met in their last year of university, they were two very different individuals who each happened to be determined and ambitious. Those strong personality traits transcended all other differences and led the couple down a path that led to their wedding day.

Nicole spent the wee hours before her wedding getting ready at Civello salon and spa with her bridesmaids, who have all been friends since pre-school and elementary school. The wedding day was spectacular with picture perfect weather as Nicole + Daniel exchanged vows in their neighborhood church. Daniel’s mother arranged for the Danforth Church Choir to provide heavenly, beautiful music for the ceremony. Everyone was touched by how personal all of the elements were.

The bride wore a remarkable trumpet-style gown with a vintage-style birdcage veil, along with awe-inspiring jewelry (including a very blingy cuff!) which matched her shoes. Her bridesmaids wore black satin dresses, in stark contrast to the bride’s gown, with large ruffled v-necklines and deep red toned bouquets.

As you may remember from their engagement shoot last year, Daniel is a talented musician. While Nicole doesn’t play music herself, she certainly loves to listen to Daniel’s tunes. Photos of their sweet engagement shoot acted as personal décor throughout the wedding. It was a wonderful touch that paid homage to their journey to the altar.

The reception took place at The Eglinton Grand old cinema in Toronto. While all of the elements of the wedding ceremony boasted a classic aesthetic, once inside the old cinema everything effortlessly shifted to a vintage theatre vibe. Nicole’s birdcage headpiece made her look like a starlet and Daniel’s dapper suit left everyone staring at the bride’s leading man.

Nicole’s aunt and uncle serenaded them with piano and song before Randy Woolman of Impact Entertainment took over the entertainment for the evening. Dancing amongst the beautiful floral arrangements from Betty Binon of Avenue Flower, Nicole + Daniel looked as though they had danced straight out of a movie!

Stephanie + Tony’s wedding was an elaborate event full of joy and love, complete with family and friends who were just as excited as the bride and groom. Before the ceremony, though, we caught a sweet moment with Stephanie where she was sitting on her bed and taking a moment for herself. Her fingers traced the beautiful lace of her veil and she seemed as though she were meditating on the moments to come.

It wasn’t long before she slipped on her breathtaking wedding gown, stepped into the most spectacular Miu Miu heels, swiped a bit of pink on her lips, adorned her neck and wrists with pearls and allowed her darling little flower girl to help her with the finishing touches. The transformation was complete, and Stephanie looked radiant!

Meanwhile, Tony partook in a much more active shoot outdoors with his groomsmen (who all wore hilarious socks – Tony had a unique pair with stripes while the other guys wore matching colorful circle prints). They each donned sunglasses for some ultra cool poses, played in the road for a few concept shots, and stood collected and statuesque for the large group photos. Tony even took his father’s Viper out for a spin!

The ceremony was lovely and heartfelt. Stephanie + Tony looked calm and serious as they spoke their vows, knowing just how much each and every word meant. The bridesmaids acted as a great supporting cast and wore the deepest of blues which caused Stephanie to stand out all the more. After the exchange of rings, the couple left the building as husband and wife!

We took lots of wedding party shots at Osgoode Hall, which was the perfect setting for the bride and groom’s timeless style. The photos with their wedding party were our very favorites, though. They told a story of love and support.

The reception took place at Liberty Grand in the beautiful Centennial Room.  It was elegant with thoughtfully arranged centrepieces, floral arrangements and arched windows. The tall candelabras, tying all of the elements together, were truly stunning!

The bride and groom took to the dance floor for their first dance and they were swept away by dreamy fog at their feet. The room went still as everyone stood by and watched the fairytale unfold before them.

A little later, guests enjoyed a mouthwatering dinner of risotto, beef tenderloin in a bourbon glaze, an intermezzo of lemon and basil sorbet, lobster tail and a delicious fruit galette … plus wedding cake later in the evening.

One of the absolute highlights for us was watching all of the kids with cameras in hand! It was a flurry of tiny paparazzi, and they did an admirable job of snapping photos of the dancers on the floor!

Stephanie + Tony’s wedding led to one of those nights that you just don’t want to end. Alas, end it did. At least we have our photos, though!
