Real Wedding: Jelena & Peter
+10 July 2009+ Home > Real Weddings

Wedding Date: March 21st, 2009
Ceremony Venue: Hart House Chapel, University of Toronto
Reception: The Arts & Letters Club, Toronto

As promised, here are the fabulous pictures of Jelena & Peter’s wedding captured by the lovely duo, Larissa & Trevor of Ambient Studios. You will be amazed that this wedding was planned in just three months!

Jelena shares with us the path to getting her dream wedding:

Our wedding day and all the planning that precedes one of the most important days in our lives was everything but a traditional North American wedding. We were engaged for three months only, and I still think that it was partly luck and partly the fact that we decided to get married in March that made everything fall into place nicely. We really were lucky to have found just the right venues and wonderful people to work with: Larissa and Trevor at Ambient Studios, Sarah at the Arts and Letters Club, Shirin my make-up artist, and Thanh my hair stylist. The only thing that gave me a headache was my wedding dress! I went on a three-day shopping marathon, dreamed of little white flowers, silk and lace, broke all the rules and took my fiancé shopping with me (you should’ve seen all the dirty looks he got) and finally found what I was looking for at the last store I went to. The seamstress worked hard to get the dress ready on time and meet my demanding expectations. I got my dress 2 days before the wedding! The fit was perfect and I could breathe again.

When we started we had no clear picture of how we wanted our day to turn out. We had a general idea of what we wanted though. We wanted our wedding to be unique, classy, simple and most importantly fun. We wanted to look and feel great, and share our wedding day with people we cared the most about – our family and closest friends.

First off, the ceremony: (btw, I just LOVE these black & white images)

This is my favourite shot. I love how Larissa & Trevor captured the joy in this embrace…

I am a huge fan of non-traditional wedding layouts in unique venues.

Congratulations and best wishes to you Jelena & Peter! And thank-you to Larissa and Trevor of Ambient Studios for stopping by to share these beautiful photos. You guys have a talent at capturing the key moments of a wedding, and I adore your candid style of photography. To my Ontario readers, you might want to check out their blog for more images and for those elsewhere, they are willing to travel! =)
