Toronto wedding at the Park Hyatt: Annie + Doug

Meeting Annie was truly serendipitous. We had a very good initial connection and later she introduced me to her husband to be, Doug, so we can all have a chat about their day. I simply loved their energy together, I felt as if I was talking to friends I have not seen in a while. Their decision to work with me on their day brought joy to my heart, given their event very much appealed on many levels. The couple had planned for a beautiful, elegant and low key wedding luncheon downtown Toronto, one of my most favorite areas for weddings.
Their choice of the Park Hyatt as a venue was brilliant on all levels, convenience included, as the couple had to only cross the street after their church ceremony.
I really enjoyed being there and recall walking home feeling light, cheerful and energized by a group of people with so much zest for life, good humour and a good party in good company.

Annie + Doug: wishing you all the very best, I hope you will enjoy some fantastic laughs for years to come!
Sincerely, Manuela.

Elegant wedding at the Hart House, Toronto

Weddings at the Hart House in Toronto are always a delight to capture. I am so taken with this historic venue’s stunning, charming architecture, the unlimited creative possibilities, the light coming through magnificent, stained glass windows.
A place of great elegance and a photographer’s dream.
Needless to say I am thrilled for every chance I have to go back to this true downtown Toronto landmark and see what else is there to discover, what new corner I have left unexplored. Every single experience is unique.

I was, therefore, very happy to learn that Madeleine and Dagomar chose this location for their celebrations. Everything took place under one roof, which made for a very relaxed day. The weather has also been impeccable.

One more time, I was taken with the talent of the Hart House’s wedding organizing team. I also have to mention the creative kitchen staff and the in house chef, who always surprise me with their culinary art. Beautiful!

M+D: may this perfect day be just the beginning of many more joyous ones spent together. Congratulations and it will be my pleasure to see you again in the future to create more family memories! Yours, Manuela.

Gorgeous winter wedding at the Hart House, Toronto

Back in September I got to spend a few quality hours at Jordan’s parents’ farm to take engagement photos of him and his future bride at the time, Kelley. I knew the fun loving couple would be amazing to be around on their wedding day. Their late January celebrations have been nothing short of exquisite, tasteful, elegant. I was delighted to learn that they planned for an outdoor wedding ceremony at the Hart House. And not just any kind, very well orchestrated at the most perfect time of the day, so it could be candle lit. The couple was blessed with a fairly reasonable temperature. Even though it got colder once the sun set, they managed to pull off a magical moment with all their guests in attendance. Very inspiring for a photographer who likes to see things that are unique, creative, out of the ordinary. The best trigger ever! The reception that followed offered a dreamy setting with more candles, fantastic food and great atmosphere, all within the gorgeous architectural setting of the Hart House.

 

Dear Kelley and Jordan, I feel privileged to have been part of such a special time in your lives, congratulations one more time, stay well and very happy always! Hugs, Manuela & Co.
