Grace & Ervin's Wedding at the Bayview Golf & Country Club

After so many lovely encounters with Grace and Ervin, I couldn't wait for the wedding day. We had a beautiful engagement session at Victoria College, U of T. We met for tacos and ice cream one summer night and discussed wedding, life, love, and food. And finally the big day came. Later I photographed this gorgeous couple's maternity photos. 

Continuing this long term relationship, I am so happy to wish Ervin & Grace a happy wedding anniversary, and wanted to share a snapshot with you, from the most beautiful days of their life. Congratulations, my lovely friends. 

Bride and groom laughing together, Bayview Golf & Country Club Wedding

After a relaxed and fun bridal session at U of T (Victoria College), Grace & Ervin held their wedding at the Bayview Golf & Country Club. It was a dreamy June afternoon and Grace came prepared to stroll the grounds in the cutest Marc Jacobs flip-flops. Practical and fashionable!

This is the very moment. When Grace's parents walked her down the short aisle, and two families became one.

Honestly, I can't decide which outfit I liked best... Black and white, white and white, or traditional Chinese wedding garments. I think I'll go with the red and gold for the win.

Mika & Paul's McMaster University Engagement Session

For Mika & Paul's engagement photos, we returned to McMaster University, where they spent their undergrad together. Not only was this a walk down memory lane, but it was just a romantic, beautiful, quiet day for them to connect and celebrate their love, just the two of them... (and me)

Andrea & Josh's Hart House Wedding at U of T

After capturing their gorgeous engagement photos in Unionville, I knew this wedding would be nothing but picturesque... And I was not wrong! Andrea & Josh had an intimate wedding luncheon in the Hart House Music Room at University of Toronto.

Surrounded by their closest family and friends, they celebrated a small outdoor ceremony that ended mere moments before the hot summer rains. Talk about beautiful luck!


Andrea and her sister got ready together in the early, early morning, before we headed off to U of T, where Josh was with his best man and parents. 


After their sweet "first look" we wandered the beautiful university grounds, and took photos of the couple amidst the classic Hart House architecture and greenery. 


During their ceremony, in the Hart House courtyard, Josh and Andrea planted a tree together, and stated their vows in front of the closest members of their community. 


As the recessional ended, the heavy skies opened up and poured. No matter, though! Everyone was cozy inside, enjoying a merry brunch and celebrating these gorgeous newlyweds!
