Glowing hearts and smiles – an intimate wedding celebration for all
One of the greatest gifts as a Wedding Photographer is to meet a Bride and Groom and become friends with the entire family and to watch their family grow over the years.
Ashley is part of this family and to be asked to capture yet another Wedding touched my heart as there could be no greater joy for us!
Their hearts were full of love for each other …… and bountiful enough, to join their new family as one.
This Wedding Day was unique as it is the union of two families becoming one. The children were key to having in their Wedding party and it was adorable to watch Ashley and Chad’s attention and love to them throughout the day. It was plain to see what a remarkable new family they have formed as the children were absolutely beaming with smiles for them.
The Grand Hotel and Suites in downtown Toronto is where the day began and it was so incredible to walk into the room and see the same makeup/hairstylist (Corrie Elle, Covet Co. ) from the previous Toronto Wedding in June. What are the chances! The room was a buzz of excitement and Ashley’s Mom assisted her with her wedding gown. I love these touching moments with a Mom and daughter…. it is an aww moment 🙂 Heidi (Ashley’s sister) presented Ashley with a beautiful bracelet that matched her earrings perfectly. It was so delicate and as a sister she knows perfectly Ashley’s style.
A fun filled wedding day – no reservations required
Chad was also at the Grand Hotel with the guys and the boys sure had a blast with Grandpa! Yes…. wrestling on a Wedding Day is for sure allowed 🙂
I loved reviewing these photos!
It was important to Ashley and Chad to spend as much time with their guests as possible and a “First Look” worked seamlessly for them. Ashley was incredibly stunning as she walked towards Chad and the joy for them both was electric. The parents/family and wedding party all watched from the sidelines. After the initial reveal we headed toward the venue, beneath the Boiler room Loft were the couple had reserved the courtyard for family photos – so on the way there, the children, without prompting, one by one, ran ahead to join them through the bustling streets….
I felt a tear watching through the lens… gosh just such a perfect moment.
Perfect location in the heart of Toronto’s Distillery District with Cobblestone Streets
The ceremony and reception was held at “the Boiler House Loft” for their chic, intimate Wedding. The laughter, excitement of close friends and family filled the room to capacity. One of the more touching moments was Lucca shedding some tears during the Wedding as he was so glad for his Mom…..a caress during the service and a kiss of love was a awe moment for all.
Ashley and Chad…. it meant the world to us to capture your fabulous Wedding Day.
We wish you a lifetime of love, joy and incredible adventures for you and your new family. xxoo
