I love small intimate weddings in unique locations like restaurants, bars, courtyards or even The Opera House in Toronto.  This wedding was so unique that it was a pleasure to be there.  We started out the day at their apartment for preparations as well as the hair salon down the street while the groom got everyone ready at The Opera House where he managed all the details.

From the bride –


I can’t begin to tell you how happy we are with the photos. Despite only meeting you once, via Skype no less, you were completely able to put us at ease and allowed us to have fun. They turned out so wonderfully and it will be very hard to choose some favourites to print or for an album. They really did turn out better than I could have hoped.

Thank you so very much!

Preparation photos start out the day while this bride gets ready for her Opera House wedding in just a few hours.

Her hair was already perfect as she sat in the window light facing Queen St. to have her makeup done for her wedding.

Mom and sister were already done and this bride sat patiently as the rain came down on this wedding day.

She was all smiles for her bridal portrait and I couldn’t have changed that for the world.

Mom came in the room to put on the finishing touches on her dress

I love the determination on moms dress as Ashley said she jus wanted one bow loop on her dress.

They also requested a “first look” session back at the apartment to remember those memories there as they had just purchased their first home and will be moving out of the area.

The wedding ceremony was taking place after an intimate dinner at The Peasant Table down the street.  Dinner was followed by family photos and photos of the bride and groom in the rain as well as in local bars.

A Queen St E bar was kind enough to let us come in out of the rain to take some wedding photos.

When you have a bride that steals the show, put the groom playing the pinball machine and let her do her thing…… priceless

These two could not stop laughing all day and made my job so easy to photograph them just being natural

The bar tender turned out to be someone they new and joined them in a toast on their wedding day.

A little rain, thunder and tornado warnings did not stop these two from smiling all day long.

In the middle of Queen St E while it’s raining I spot this alley with the cutest little house on the end.

Now it’s time to head over to the restaurant with family and friends for dinner before the big ceremony

Then it was time for the wedding ceremony on the stage of the iconic Opera House here in Toronto.  The lights were all set and the sound stage was ready for this next part of the day as all the guests gathered around the stage like they were there to see the next live act as the bride and groom each took a side stage and met in the middle amongst the musical instruments, microphones and speakers.

Opera House centre stage for the wedding ceremony was so creative.

I could not miss this opportunity to grab them a night shot with The Opera House sign on their wedding day.

Thank you to David Proc for getting to the balcony for this shot of the wedding ceremony

When the first dance was announced so was the fact that they wanted it to be a group activity so everyone was asked to join and i raced upstairs to grab this shot for them.
