Liberty Grand Wedding
Laurie and Christopher’ Wedding at Liberty Grand
Laurie and Christopher’s wedding was an affair filled with classic elegance and a hint of rustic charm. Laurie got ready at The Ivy, a luxury boutique hotel located in downtown Toronto. The wide windows made it easy for natural light to come in, creating a refreshing atmosphere for the bride to relax before the craziness. Thanks to Kombucha, champagne and lovely bridesmaids, Laurie definitely had a light-hearted morning.
The couple tied the knot at the historical and majestic St. Paul’s Basilica. Keeping it traditional, Chris waited patiently at the front of the altar for his bride. As the bridal party trickled in, it was clear that the Italian Renaissance style of the church elevates whatever is going on inside of it. True enough, Laurie’s entrance was a dramatic scene as she walked down the aisle with grace, overwhelming everyone watching.
Although they were greeted with a little rain, that didn’t stop the newly wed couple from smiling as they walked out of the church hand in hand. Although we love taking photos in the rain, we were thankful the sun kept shining for Laurie and Chris’ portraits around the architecturally beautiful Victoria College campus. We love having the opportunity to play with the bride’s veil (if they have one), and we definitely had fun with Laurie’s!
The reception was held at another historical venue. The luxurious Liberty Grand’s interior contains imported period furnishing, and crystal chandeliers, giving off a traditional early 1900s magnificence. For Laurie and Chris’ celebration, the room was decorated with gold, and enough blush coloured blooms and foliage to add the rustic twist to the elegant scene. The blackboard signs, and calligraphy added to the charm. Though the celebration seemed grand, the feeling of closeness amongst the guests and the couple made it seem very intimate. It’s easy to tell from these photos how much Laurie and Chris had fun celebrating their new life together with their nearest and dearest, and it warmed our hearts to be the ones to capture it.
