Andrea + Rob
Andrea and Rob had an amazing New Year’s Eve wedding at the Toronto Reference Library in Downtown Toronto! The Toronto Reference Library is one of my favourite venues! (check out Noor + John’s wedding there!)
I love the idea of New Years weddings… let’s face it, if you get invited to one then you have to do zero planning. Big fancy dinner, dancing, midnight celebrations… it’s all taken care of for you. And Andrea and Rob did a fantastic job planing a great evening for all their friends and family.
Another bonus, at least for me, for new years weddings is it’s usually a later start. :) I met up with Andrea and her bridesmaids at her suite at the Fours Seasons Hotel in Toronto’s Yorkville neighbourhood. Bonus points that it was so close to the Toronto Reference Library we could see it out the window!
After some time spent photographing the girls I Uber’d it over to see Rob at his best man’s condo to document them getting ready.
We had an amazing first look amongst the bookshelves of the Toronto Reference Library followed up with some portrait time. The wedding ceremony was held in the main space of the library but they had a completely different layout than I’ve ever seen there. Instead of one aisle leading to the alter, they had a central alter with two aisles leading up to it and guests in all for quadrants (this is probably making no sense).
Rob and his side came down the one aisle and Andrea made an amazing entrance descending down the glass elevator and then walking up the aisle arm in arm with her father. After the ceremony it was some family pictures, a fun receiving line and then straight into dinner!
Andrea + Rob went with a buffet for dinner and chose to have different dishes from around the world as well as Canadian favourites…. I rarely get to eat so well at a wedding!
Speeches and dancing rounded out the evening all leading up to the big midnight countdown featuring all the usual hats and horns as well as a big confetti drop!
