Finally getting around to post all the photos from this beautiful shoot with Alisha at Whim Events and Paulina at Fete Florals that was featured in the print issue of Today’s Bride Magazine. This editorial wedding shoot took place at the newly renovated Broadview Hotel located in the east end of Toronto in Leslieville. The colours of this shoot of purple and gold set to the backdrop of the rustic interior.
As a Toronto wedding photographer who loves fun colours and bold whimsical ideas, I was really honoured to have been part of this shoot! The emasculate floral arrangements alongside the table settings accented by lilac candles gave a wonderful fairytale style atmosphere. It was so dreamlike especially with the combination of natural light and crystal chandeliers.
I absolutely adored the wedding cake by Mademoiselle Vanilla which was placed on top of the white and gold china by Plate Occasions adorn with beautiful flowers framed by golden cake forks and knives.
We were excited to shoot the lovely bride who was only made more stunning by the makeup and hair artist at Blush Pretty. We were taken back at how naturally the bride and groom posed in true fantasy style as fairytale royalty, especially in front of the tablescape in the iconic room at The Broadview Hotel, The Tower.
We had the groom dressed in a very different kind of look – a purple suit by C.E. Clothier. With a flower tiara, the bride could not help herself but smile radiantly. The bridesmaids were also dressed in white flowy dresses from Vera Wang and posed along with the brides in between laughs and drinks.
Helix Candles provided laid down their beautiful candles in a beautiful arrangement against the backdrop of a purple nebula. I had the bride and groom rested on a bed of stars posed to gaze longingly into each other’s eyes. This shot gave a sense of magic and wonderment.
As a Toronto wedding photographer, I love these types of shoots! Taking pictures of all the creativity of the most talented wedding vendors in Toronto is such a great honour. With the gorgeous colours and settings that they’ve created – it challenges me to capture it all in a way that really makes it seem like you are stepping into the cosmos.
