Natalie and Jasper currently live in Amsterdam. She is Canadian, he is Dutch. Together they simply are a lot of fun. It is a pleasure to be around this kind of intoxicating energy. After first meeting with them I knew I was going to have a great time while capturing their day. They decided to celebrate their union at the elegant National Club in Toronto. After the ceremony held at St Paul’s Basilica located downtown Toronto, they traveled to the U of T campus in a gorgeous, jewel like antique Ford booked by Natalie’s parents as a surprise. In spite of the rain threat and the few drops that managed to sneak down from the sky, we had a fantastic time together and everything worked out perfectly well. I could have not asked for more from a creative perspective and it was difficult to narrow down the photos for this blog
Natalie and Jasper, I hope to see more of you when you move to Toronto. I wish you a great 2011 and much happiness in your life together! Love, Manuela.
Lisa and Dominic got married on the grounds of the McMichael Gallery in Kleinburg. They had a great celebration with family members and close friends. The first time we sat down to chat about their wedding I noticed their laid back and relaxed way of being. While they shared some beautiful photographs taken during a trip to China, I sensed a deep appreciation for fine things. The fact that Dominic has previously lived in my current building, one floor below mine, was just one of the many elements that clicked into place confirming we were a good match. Their wedding day was a reinforcement for my anticipation preceding the events.
Lisa and Dominic, hope you will live a life together as beautiful as the two of you are, inside and out! Hug, Manuela
Melissa and Mark decided to hold their wedding ceremony and reception at the chic King Edward hotel downtown Toronto. I love it when everything is so close by, it always makes for a more relaxed day. This way I got to spend some time with both the girls and boys and had some fun in the area. I mentioned before how much I love photographing downtown Toronto. And no matter how many times this happens, I still end up being surprised by the textures, colours and corners around. This was the case on such a lovely October day and I think the photos below will speak for themselves.
Melissa and Mark, it was great being with you on your day and I wish you much happiness together! Hug, Manuela & Co.
