Nina and Yimar met by chance while they were both vacationing in Hawaii. While sparks flew amidst the tropical orange sunsets, great blue waves, and island lifestyle, they knew they had to go back to their separate homes once the trip was over, which was 3500 kilometres apart from each other.

Nina lives in Los Angeles while Yimar is from Toronto and their long distance relationship was a true test of their love for one another. Fast forward to a few years later, they are now happily engaged and Yimar is headed to LA to start a new career with the love of his life.

The official wedding will be held in Los Angeles but they wanted to celebrate their engagement in Toronto first. The decision to have an engagement party here was a last minute decision, but luckily we were available to be a part of their wonderful celebration. The engagement shoot was done on one of the rare cooler days of this 2016 summer on Centre Island and featured a magnificent sunset the entire time.

Early in July on a lovely summer day was Amy and Matthew’s one-year anniversary and they celebrated the occasion with an incredible party at the Markham Museum.

Amy and Matthew were married in the United States but since they’re moving back to Toronto for good, they wanted to host a wedding party for their friends and family back home. Located on Main Street, the museum’s grounds consist of beautiful historic buildings with the Hoover House being the oldest, which was built in 1825.

Annie Melissa was the one who planned the wonderful event and who also invited me along to capture the moments. It was a hip summer party that was held outdoors under a large reception tent and decorated with string lights.

There were a number of awesome food trucks that were brought in to cater the event like M.E.N.U. Food Truck, Buster’s Sea Cove, Stroke Stack BBQ, and Be Good Gelato. It was both self-serve and all-you-can-eat – a dangerous combination. Everything was delicious but my favourite was undoubtedly the massive lobster roll. Good thing there were excellent lawn games like giant beer pong and bocce ball to help everyone combat that food baby.

The story of how Ivy and Andrew met sounds like it could be from a movie. Doctor Andrew met Nurse Ivy while they were both working at Mount Sinai Hospital. Although they both had busy lifestyles, for them, falling in love took no time at all.

Ivy and Andrew’s wedding and reception had a certain air of English aesthetic to it. Perhaps it’s because Ivy was born and raised in Hong Kong while it was still under British rule, she has a particular affection for Victorian style.

They chose the magnificent King Edward Hotel to prepare for the wedding, while the actual ceremony was held at Casa Loma with its ornate walls and enormous windows. Taking full advantage of being at Casa Loma, an outdoor photoshoot was held in the gardens.

Although it was one of the hottest days in 2015, the couple did not even complain once! The reception was hosted at the King Edward Hotel in the freshly renovated Vanity Fair Ballroom, which was decorated with a wonderful pastel pink that harmonized perfectly with the warm creams and champagne tones.

It was an incredible party and it’s no surprise that the bridal party (that consisted of all doctors and nurses) especially took the celebration as an opportunity to let loose and have some fun.
