Linda + Andrew
Linda + Andrew didn't choose Hart House on the University of Toronto campus because it looks cool (it does). Or because of the how good the food and service are (they're great!).
They actually met on the campus as teenagers attending a summer camp and Andrew later attending for engineering so the entire campus holds a special place in their hearts.
And as luck would have it, I chose the exact spot where Andrew proposed for their first look... I swear I didn't know!
We made great use of the campus for portraits, since they're was no wedding party we were able to move quickly getting lots of great pictures!
Linda and Andrew then held a traditional Chinese tea ceremony for their relatives quickly followed by a western wedding ceremony held outdoors in the Quad at Hart House.
The wedding ceremony was held outdoors in the courtyard of Hart House.
I had a great time during cocktail hour as the DJ played movie themes trying to guess which one it was... it's not as easy as you think without the visuals in front of you!
We got lots of great family pictures and everyone had a chance to sample the amazing appetizers and enjoy a cocktail as the sun began to set.
Linda and Andrew entered their wedding reception and performed a beautifully choreographed first dance for all their guests!
The dinner itself was really relaxed with only a few speeches which gave Linda and Andrew plenty of time mingle and socialize with all their guests. Too often at a modern, hectic wedding this can get overlooked.
One of the best moments during the reception was when Andrew flexed his singing muscles and serenaded Linda with a song.
Once the dance floor was open the DJ did a great job of getting everyone up and moving and keeping them on the dance floor... which of course makes my job easier. :)
