Najwa + Trevin
Najwa and Trevin had an amazing wedding at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto!
These two had a real sense of style and an individual look that I really liked! Those shoes by Valentino were something else! Trevin's blue shoes were great too!
I spent the morning going back and forth between the girls and guys but if you ever get a chance to get ready for your wedding in a suite at the Four Seasons I highly recommend it. :) The rooms are simply stunning... full of light and lots of room to shoot.
Trevin and his boys (and one girl!) got ready over in his suite at the Park Hyatt in Yorkville. The first thing anyone would notice meeting Trevin is his amazing, infectious laugh... I don't think I've ever had a wedding where I've had so many pictures of the groom laughing! Once Trevin's crew were ready, his family joined them for a traditional pre-wedding blessing before heading off to the church for the ceremony.
The day threatened (and did) rain all morning but thankfully it ended by the time we needed to head off to the ceremony at St Basil's Catholic Parish. Being a Saturday in the summer in Toronto, there was some sort of parade/festival/gong show going down Bloor so we all had to abandon our taxi's and Uber's and hustle down on foot!
The ceremony at St. Basils was great, it's always nice when churches don't have too many rules about photography. I'm always discete and respectful when I photograph wedding ceremonies but I'm also trying to get my clients the best pictures possible!
One of the best parts about having your wedding at the Art Gallery of Ontario is that you get to access to their beautiful galleries for wedding pictures!
Cocktails were held in the Galleria Italia and the reception was upstairs in Bailey Court with an amazing view of the Toronto Skyline.
The details at the reception were great, Coriander Girl did an amazing job with the florals!
Danielle and her team from Love by Lynzie did an amazing job planning and coordinating the wedding... everything looked amazing and went off without a hitch!
The reception was great with DJ Dopey & DJ Serious spinning some great music. Of course the highlight of the reception was when it was announced that Trevin and some of his buddies were semi pro breakdancers and proceeded to put on an amazing show for everyone.
