I was lucky to spend a short time photographing Rachel and Jens' civil ceremony with some of their close family members at the Toronto City Hall in March. Their ceremony was filled with emotion, love, and celebration, followed by the most fun set of Facetime calls from family members who were not able to make it to Toronto for the day.
After the ceremony we had a few minutes to take some wedding photographs together in Nathan Phillips Square as the snow started to fall softly. Toronto at dusk is one of the most gorgeous locations for urban wedding photographs. The lights in all the surrounding buildings come on, the streets begin to clear out, and the square with it's Iconic 'Toronto' sign is a perfect location to see some of the beautiful architecture of downtown Toronto in the background. The whole scene lent a perfect air of celebration to send the couple off hand in hand for the rest of their evening at a downtown dinner party.
