Toronto elegant wedding at Sassfraz in Yorkville

There are so many things that I absolutely loved about Lisa and Jeremy’s wedding…I do not even know which one to mention first. I recall the great feeling I had while walking back home that warm September night (yes, isn’t that great!) and not being able to identify the slightest sign of fatigue after having worked all day. Because it did not feel like that. Contrary, all moments have unfolded in a light, almost refreshing manner, as they should. Looking back, I know it was all in the energy surrounding this amazing couple.
They could not have chosen a better setting for their day. The urban atmosphere was the best fit for their style and personalities. Their wedding was intimate, shared with family members and very close friends. The ceremony & reception location was absolutely splendid: Yorkville’s Sassafraz, a delightful venue¬†I love returning¬†to. This gem amazes me with its simple elegance and the professionalism of a warm, welcoming and dedicated event organizing team.

I hope the images below give you a taste of a fabulous day spent with two of the loveliest people to be around.
Lisa & Jeremy, I am wishing you all the very best in your new life! 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.

Downtown Toronto Iranian wedding with colour and style

 

Iranian weddings are intricate and rich in meaning. I have always been fascinated with the Sofreh (the display used during the Iranian ceremony) which holds together items that symbolize love, abundance, a sweet life, fertility. It is a beautiful way for the couple to be wished well and sent off on their new journey.

Yasmine and Reza have minutely and elaborately chosen the details for their big day. Starting with the colourful rooms at the Park Hyatt for their getting ready photos and ending with the reception held at the quaint Arta Gallery located in the Distillery District. All in all, the day has been colourful, eventful, emotional. And filled with a lot of high energy.

Their guests greeted the couple with a lot of clapping and singing which made the ceremony feel even more festive. The rhythms were truly exhilarating.

The reception that followed was lots of fun, with nice surprises the couple had reserved for their guests. A joy to witness!

 

Yasmine and Reza, congratulations to you and may your new life together be nothing short of sweet and abundant!

Manuela

A lovely wedding celebration at The National Club, Toronto

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.
