Marie and Alex’s journey began with an unexpected knock on the door, a chance meeting that blossomed into a beautiful relationship. Their proposal, however, was anything but unexpected. In the midst of a magical snowstorm, Alex crafted a proposal in the backyard, marking the beginning of a new chapter in their lives. It was a moment of pure enchantment, a precursor to the intimate and chic wedding they were about to plan.

The day started at the luxurious Four Seasons, where Marie and Alex prepared for their special day. Marie shared tender moments with her mom and had a heartfelt first look with her dad. Meanwhile, Alex shared laughs and toasts with his friends. The first look in Marie’s hotel suite was a delightful cascade of emotions, laughter, and pure happiness.The couple, radiant and in love, embarked on a photographic journey through the financial district of Toronto. The iconic Toronto Dominion Centre provided a stunning backdrop, capturing the essence of the city alongside the essence of their love.

The Canoe ceremony space was adorned with breathtaking florals by Creations by Gitta, featuring hydrangeas and calla lilies. The air was filled with love as Marie walked down the aisle to the soulful notes of “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” The reception at Canoe was a vision of elegance, with the same stunning florals gracing the space. Natural light flooded in through the large windows, casting a warm glow on the celebration. Guests indulged in an antipasto table during cocktail hour as Marie and Alex, after a room reveal, graciously joined to welcome and greet their loved ones.

The evening unfolded with heartfelt speeches, each word a testament to the enduring love of Marie and Alex. The first dance, performed live by a band, resonated with the couple’s chosen song. A beautiful choreography of love set to the rhythm of “You Make My Dreams (Come True).”  For Marie, the highlight was witnessing their vision come to life—a night of intimacy, surrounded by close friends and family who have known them throughout their journey. It was a celebration of love that felt authentic, personal, and filled with joy.

Marie and Alex’s wedding was a testament to the power of simplicity, chic elegance, and intimate connections. As their photographer, it was an honor to capture these moments—frozen in time, yet brimming with the warmth of their love. In every frame, the story of Marie and Alex’s journey unfolded, a timeless narrative of two souls choosing to dance through life together.

We were so excited to receive our photos! It was the best day with the best team. Our photographer made a world of difference through our preparation for the wedding and throughout the whole day. They really understood our vision and what we were looking for. I cannot recommend you enough.
