Today’s featured couple Olivia & Wilson LOVE to travel, so naturally their engagement session was held at the Toronto City Airport to celebrate their shared passion. Photos are by Sandy Tam Photography.

Says Olivia: “We met in the last year of University – it was a course on business strategies, and we were placed in the same group by our professor (guess it was meant to be!). We have really opposite personalities but this helps us to complement each other in many ways. Although we both live in Toronto, our first date was actually in Hong Kong. We both love to travel and meet people around the world. On trips, we plan our own itineraries together and it’s usually to the minute so that we can maximize our time to see the outdoors. Wilson actually proposed on one of our trips as well – at the Gold Coast in Australia. We chose the hanger for our engagement shoot as it best reflects our first date, engagement and our upcoming “departure” flight in September which will mark the beginning of our life-long love journey!”

Henrietta and Colter wanted a wedding with natural elements, yet modern and complete with a ‘wow’ factor. So with the help of the ever-talented Evelyn of Evelyn Clark Weddings, Spruce Meadows in Calgary was transformed with a mix of orange, green and white along with natural wood and silver elements throughout. Their wedding captured by Fuller Edge Photography is entirely fresh and unexpected.

The beautiful outdoor ceremony was highlighted by a gorgeous curly willow arch at the grand staircase. For the reception, custom long wood tables and dark wood chairs were favoured over the traditional round tables. The centrepieces included hundreds of hydrangea, rose and greenery along with large orange rose blooms per table setting. Silver candelabras and plenty of candle light mixed with stunning special lighting created a lush, warm feel to the indoor reception. To emphasize the bride and groom’s seats, we used 2 chiavari chairs instead of the wood ‘Tuscan’ chairs and Evelyn Clark Weddings made custom “Mr. and Mrs.” signs as a surprise for the bride and groom.

Guests were treated to traditional African song and dance after dinner as a showcase to the bride’s African roots. A lively dance complete with colourful costume and singing by the bride’s mother got the crowd on their feet, with the bride and groom and guests joining in on the fun. It was truly a sight to behold and the energy was unbelievable! Thank goodness Fuller Edge Photography was there to capture all the details.
