Kristen and Troy’s wedding captured by K North Photography is so sweet, literally! Kristen absolutely loves candy so it was essential that it be part of their wedding theme, aside from the palette of green, yellow and gray. Held at the unique Arcadian Loft in the Hudson’s Bay Company in downtown Toronto with city views, guests were treated to sugar-coated doghnut holes as seating charts, signature pineapple mojitos, a candy-covered cake and one of the biggest candy bars I’ve ever blogged about.

Says Karri: “What a treat of a wedding day! or rather, what a wedding day-ful of treats. Kristin & Troy really took every opportunity to make their day everything that they imagined it could be: a window-lined room overlooking the very centre of the city, a sumptuous meal by Oliver & Bonacini, an offering of sugar-coated doughnut holes to greet and seat their guests, signature pineapple mojitos, chandeliers and giant lanterns, personalized stationary to mark each stage of the day, lively yellow-green bouquets and table dressings, a candy-beaded cake crafted by the sister-of-the-bride—and finally, the finale: a candy-tastic buffet to rival Willy Wonka. Kristin’s infatuation with candy is truly no joke.

I really enjoyed the day’s mixture of fun and formal. We had an easy time overtaking the roof terrace of city hall for portraits–I love the many candids captured by my new second shooter, the very talented John Lawson. Precious mother/father glances at their freshly dressed daughter-bride are worth mentioning–as is the first look on the 70’s architechtural wonder of a staircase gracing the lobby of the Arcadian Loft, a shiny disco showpiece indeed.
It seems taking images of people taking images is the new black. Whatever brings on a smile, I dedicate my lens in that direction.
Wishing many many years of sweetness and ease to the very fine couple. xo

Get ready to pull out those tissues because this is one of the sweetest posts I’ve had the chance of sharing. Bridget of { First Kiss Films } decided to surprise her husband Christopher with a vow renewal on their fifth year anniversary. Bridget decided she would plan an intimate sunset ceremony in Stanley Park, Ottawa with their 1.5 year old son taking part. They hired the same officiant who officiated their wedding and the same stationery company to leave a trail of instructions to guide Christopher to the ceremony site. And to top it all off, Bridget surprised Christopher with the news that she was expecting their second child. You’ll see the exact moment Christopher received the news in these images captured by Kim Ing Photography. Be sure to check out the video captured by { First Kiss Films } after the images, who filmed the entire ceremony through the lens of their mid-century movie camera.

I’ve always said that if I could go back and re-do my wedding all over again, I’d have an intimate wedding at a romantic restaurant with good eats and candlelight. So it’s no surprise that I love today’s wedding feature captured by Jennifer Ballard Photography. Katie and Graham had an intimate ceremony in the courtyard of George Restaurant in downtown Toronto followed by a reception in their dining room. Katie wore a gorgeous sequined blush pink gown from Truvelle, just a shade lighter than her bridesmaids in pink. Enjoy!

This morning Oak & Myrrh Photography shares a beautiful rustic, yet classic wedding held at the lovely Cambium Farms in Ontario. From the hand drawn chalkboard signs created by the couple and their own homemade beer, this wedding is just full of charming DIY details.

Says Aisling: “Beck and Courtney were a dream to work with— I had so much fun celebrating with them. They had their closest friends together and there was lots of laughs and happy tears— my favourite! They had so many personal touches to the day. They gave their mothers handkerchiefs with a personal message on them, Courtney stitched a heart inside her wedding dress for her dad for her ‘something blue’, crafted all their beautiful signs themselves, passed their rings around during the ceremony so that everyone they love could hold them and say a blessing over their marriage, made their own beer, and Courtney’s dad sang with his band at the reception! The forecast was for lots of rain, and as the ceremony began outside, it started to rain. They decided they wanted to get married outside regardless of the weather, and just as Courtney started walking down the aisle the rain stopped and never came back. It was a perfect day.”
