The girls were almost ready when we arrived to shoot Sandra getting ready at the Royal York. We love this hotel for its elegant look and feel.
Mike arrived soon after for one of the most memorable First Looks we’ve ever shot.
We then headed over to Cloud Gardens Conservatory – a small park in downtown Toronto. This park was designed by several architects and artists and features elaborate landscape design.
While shooting at Cloud Gardens, we were lucky enough to encounter a group of parkour enthusiasts, who agreed to demonstrate some of their moves in the background of a few of our shots. I can’t say we’ve ever shot anything like that before and it gave Sandra and Mike some pretty unique wedding photos.
After the Bride and Groom and Wedding party photos were done, we all walked to the Board of Trade – the couples venue for the Ceremony and Reception. This modern, spacious facility was recently renovated and features over 30,000 square feet of event space in First Canadian Place, including a 300-seat main ballroom. It provides a chef-driven kitchen, a top-notch service team and dedicated on-site event coordinators.
The ceremony got into swing as Mike was practically danced in with his parents. Sandra, escorted by her mom and dad, walked to the front to be greeted by an ever smiling Mike. The Wedding Party stood in front of a large, floor to ceiling window that offered an amazing view of the city.
The food at the reception was nothing short of exquisite. From the hors d’oeuvres to the entree’s the food was definitely top-notch.
We closed out the evening with a few shots in and around First Canadian Place.
