I first met Alexandra at one of the first weddings I ever photographed over two years previously. I remembered her warm personality well, and was so excited when she got in touch with me about photographing her own wedding last summer! I got together with her and Matthew for their at-home engagement session last winter. She played the piano, he serenaded her on the guitar, and together they enjoyed browsing through their record collection and dancing around the basement. I’d been looking forward to getting to photograph their wedding ever since!
They were married on a late summer day in downtown Toronto at the Royal Conservatory of Music and U of T’s gorgeous Trinity Chapel. It was the perfect venue for these two music loving souls. Alex got ready in the beautiful modern glass bridal suite with her bridesmaids. Just as it was time to leave for their ceremony it started to rain softly, but Alex could have cared less and squeezed under an umbrella with her best friend, smiling from ear to ear, for the walk to their ceremony at Trinity Chapel. Trinity chapel is a photographers dream to photograph, with it’s classic European architecture aesthetic, high vaulted ceilings, and tall windows spilling light down into the space. Alex and Matt smiled their whole way through the ceremony, and danced back through the rain to the conservatory for their photographs and reception.
They chose beautiful classic décor for their reception that contrasted perfectly with the modern architecture of the new addition at the conservatory. Round tables surrounded by harvest chairs were topped with gorgeous white and green floral arrangements, and each table was named for one of the couples favourite musicians. They did a fantastic job of carrying their music theme through the entire day, and my personal favourite moment was getting to grab some photographs of them together at the piano, playing a duet softly together and enjoying some quiet time in each other’s company on their wedding day.
