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.
