For March it was unusually warm out, and with the sun beaming down on us it almost felt warm enough for shorts. It was definitely a great day for a wedding and I knew this was going to be a fun and unique wedding, one that I will never forget.
As I saw Mr. Jean-Marc striding up the path all dressed in his wedding attire, what with the sparkly shoes and the multi coloured checkered shirt or his white rimmed glasses or that stunning blue prada broach my eyes couldn’t contain their joy. So many beautiful things to photograph, never mind the tiffany and cartier wedding bands, and the louis vuitton dog collar were all fabulous too, and I so need one of those LV collars, it doesn’t matter that I don’t have a dog yet,lol. JM was a bit nervous but ready, soon the rest of the party joined us and then Tim strolled up with Louis their gorgeous little doogie and we were ready to go.
We did all the formal shots before the wedding at Allan gardens in downtown Toronto and once we were done we drove on over to Sassafraz in Yorkville for the ceremony and reception. In the heart of yorkville is this exquisite restuarant and I was so excited that the reception was being held there, we were greeted with smiles and lots of pretty faces, the waiters at Sassafraz are all good looking, and extremely cordial and polite. A special thank you goes out to the manager Jean-Valery Lacasse, who took such good care of the whole wedding party all night long, merci Jean!
Shortly after we all arrived the ceremony began. Everything went by so quickly, as often wedding days do and after the ceremony came the yummy appetizers and then a fantastic dinner. We had many choices but I chose beef tederloin with lobster pommes thermidor and mushroom spinach saute which melted in my mouth (can you tell I love food?). Right before the main course, I had baby spinach with blueberries and maple roasted walnuts and goat cheese, and I have to say that is my new favourite salad. Dessert, again a choice and I chose the decadent chocolate marquis with mousse and ganache and lavender raspberry sauce, I was so full that I could only manage a couple of bites but it was wonderful.
I can not express how much fun my team and I had, everyone was so warm and kind and affectionate and such a super fun wedding party, and we barely stopped smiling all day. My thanks go out to the happy couple, Tim and J.M. along with best wishes and a long happy life together. Enjoy your sneak peeks.
