Ashley and Raoul met each other when their eveningâ€™s out collided together. Raoulâ€™s cousin came to visit from England, and he decided to show him the town, and eventually stopping by the local bar, known as the Bier Market. Ashley was out with her best friend also ending up at the same bar. Little did they both know, it would be a night that would change their lives forever.
They noticed each other from across the room, with Ashleyâ€™s smile it was all it took for Raoul to approach and strike up a conversation. Ashley and Raoul quickly connected, even realizing that they worked at the same bank, and the rest was history.
Fast forward four months and they were already living together and just engaged. Eventually, and quite quickly, we start the story again, on the day of their wedding almost a year to the day of the proposal. It was supposed to pour that whole afternoon and into the evening. But as fate had it, they were spared the showers, but were blessed with the best lighting to produce the most spectacular photos. Everything about this wedding exemplified
Ashleyâ€™s enormous hard work in putting together a stunningly gorgeous romantic fairytale wedding at the Estates of Sunnybrook in Toronto. Ashley and Raoul said their vows to one another in front of their closest friends and family and in the middle of such beautiful gardens at the back of the McLean House. Ashley has dreamt of her fairytale wedding since she was a little girl.
They had the most incredible dessert table. It was perfectly put together with precision and expertise. The linen that was embedded with crystals in the dining room matched Ashleyâ€™s embroidered bridal dress. There was no shortage of flowers or sparkles and everything beautiful. But the one thing that truly warmed my heart was their love for each other and how happy their family and friends were for them on this day.
Ashley and Raoul, thank you for welcoming me into your lives so that I can help capture this magical wedding day through photos. I wish you a happily ever after 🙂
