Alli and Kyle had planned their wedding in Prince Edward County but a couple of shifts in planning needed to be made to accommodate their needs and a desire to scale back their wedding to a more intimate gathering so it was off to Toronto for the day to Le Select Bistro.
We started the day at the Hilton Toronto where the ladies had a full on dance party in their suite while the gentleman took a more subdued approach to getting ready (ie: searching for their cufflinks, shoes and ties that couldn’t be located). I’m sure the laughter could be heard ten floors below where the guys were :)
Laughter and fun were the theme of the day ..and a cape. Instead of a veil Alli selected to put on a lace cape and be a superhero bride. The cape was badass.
After getting ready at the Hilton they opted to have a first look at Osgoode Hall. As Alli approached Kyle his normally quiet demeanour was even more subdued and I could feel her nervousness as she approached. Alli’s nervous giggle was relieved as he turned around and smiled as they embraced. I love first looks …even in such a public place like Osgoode they were able to have a private moment.
On to Le Select Bistro for a back patio ceremony with 30 of their friends and family in tow (including an 8 person per side bridal party!). When half your guests are your closest friends you know it’s going to be an awesome day. Dinner was served inside in the private dining area with dancing taking place on the back patio where the ceremony took place.
As well all know Toronto is in a constant state of construction / rebuilding so it was easy to find a fun spot to make some photos of the bridal party. We converged on a very old home being converted into the base for a condo tower and made an ‘album cover’ (as we decided to call it) and wandered around the neighborhood finding nooks and crannies to make some portraits in.
As the evening of dinner and laughing wound down they headed to a club nearby to spend their evening sweating it up on the dance floor.
Here’s my favorite shots of the day:
