Back to Toronto’s majestic Hart House, this time for Anita and John’s wedding. What a delight!
They celebrated with a lovely luncheon and, as I expected, they could not stop laughing throughout their day. They even giggled during their ceremony, which was so much fun to see! Their exuberance said it all: deeply in love with each other, they could not wait to share their joy with the people dearest to both of them. At the end, we accompanied them along the Philosopher’s Walk, leading to the Intercontinental Hotel, where the newly weds got to relax, and enjoy the beginning of a new, exciting chapter in their lives.
Anita & John, may your joy remain intact for years to come, have fun together and just keep on loving life! Manuela & Co
April 25th was not just any other day: beautiful Jenia celebrated her union in marriage to her beloved BJ and…her Birthday! How lovely is that?
Surrounded by family members and close friends, they both seemed to enjoy every second of their precious day.
There was music, laughter, fabulous company, fantastic food (provided by the same talented team at the Hart House in Toronto). A spectacular venue, always offering the very best, plus an absolute joy to capture on camera.
Regardless of how many times I go back, I am always in awe when I look around, while new layers of architectural beauty unravel before my eyes. There is so much character to this historical place that it truly is impossible for the artistic imagination to be still…always a great choice!
Jenia + BJ: may this perfect double celebration be the start of a long row of occasions for shared happiness. It was a real pleasure to be there with you on such a memorable day! Wishing you the best in your new life!
Yours, Manuela & Co.
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.
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.
