I’ve had the pleasure of photographing Danielle with her niece years ago and even back then I told Danielle that I couldn’ t wait to photograph her again and perhaps the next time we could do a session with her boyfriend. Well I was so thrilled when she emailed me to ask me to be her photographer for their wedding this past June and I was so excited and just knew she was going to be a beautiful bride and I wasn’t wrong.
I was even more thrilled when they liked the idea of the “first look” where a bride and groom see each other before the ceremony and I found the perfect spot for them on top of the Hyatt Park hotel. As I searched for a good location I asked if there was a rooftop terrace of sorts and was giddy with excitement when they said yes. I quickly went to check it out and it was so pretty with a great view of the city and even with their engagement session we tried to get the CN tower in a few shots and from the roof of the Hilton you could see it perfectly. It was so sweet watching and photographing these two seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day and I highly recommend the “first look” to all couples getting married.
We then went to the U of T campus for formal shots and again got a few shots with the CN tower as well, it seemed like it was following us everywhere,lol. Family and friends gathered together at the campus and everyone was so nice, as well as so happy for these two love birds. It was a beautiful day and you could feel the love in the air and we got some really beautiful shots of the bride and groom and their families and then it was off to the church to watch these two commit their lives to each other.
Our lady of Lourdes church was very pretty inside and the priest was so wonderful and accommodating and as he prayed for this couple he asked us to raise our hands and pray for them as well which was such a sweet sentiment. It was one of the loveliest wedding ceremonies I have ever photographed.
For the reception we went to Lollita’s lust on the Danforth and enjoyed some yummy food and wonderful ambience. Danielle’s sister Elise LeGrow, a fabulous prominent and up coming singer (whom I photographed before) sang while Danielle and Dave danced their first dance together as husband and wife, it was quite touching. There was lots of dancing and lots of smiles all day long and it was a perfect wedding day.
Dave and Danielle, we can’t thank you enough for choosing us as your photographers to capture your wedding and we are so utterly thrilled for you guys and wish you all the happiness in the world. We can’t wait til you have babies,lol.
