Noor + John
Noor and John had a beautiful springtime wedding at the Toronto Reference Library. The library is easily one of the most unique wedding venues in Toronto... it's the fully functional main branch of the Toronto Public Library (you can't even have an event there until after 5pm when the library closes.
Noor began the day at her parents home in mid-town getting ready and then awaiting John's arrival for the big reveal after John and his brother in law had a relaxing morning getting ready at the Yorkville Marriot. After their great first look we all hoped into the limousine and headed over to the Reference Library for some portraits before the ceremony.
And what a ceremony it was! Noor descended 5 stories down a glass elevator as John and their guests looked on to make one of the most memorable entrances I've seen in shooting 12 years of wedding.
The ceremony was officiated by one of their best friends and included readings by friends and family.
After the ceremony everyone headed up to the reception room and the some of the coolest 'details' I've seen. Each centre piece was a stack of classic books and everyone's place card was a wrapped book (mine was cookbook!).
The reception began with with Noor + John's first dance as a married couple. I have to say that The two MC's at this wedding did a brilliant job... it's not often I laugh at wedding jokes but these two succeeded. :)
Dinner was amazing set of food stations featuring some of their favourite foods... schnitzel, prime rib, poke and biryani. From there it was some great speeches and then on to the party!
I have to take a minute and thank Trevor from Trevents who coordinated the entire day and did an amazing job! Trevor is actually an old primary schoolfriend of Noor's. If you're getting married, give Trevor a call!
