My favourite thing about living in Toronto is that everyone is from somewhere. Nowadays it's pretty rare to meet someone who's not an immigrant or at least a direct descendant of one. Heck, even I moved here a little under 6 years ago. All this multiculturalism creates such a wonderfully rich experience, anyone you meet can teach you a thing or two about their culture, their past, and you get just a little taste of what it's like on the other side of the world.
Simone is from India and Brian is from Ireland, but they found each other and fell in love in Toronto. You would think that coming from such different cultures and backgrounds would make this an unlikely pair, but Simone & Brian are absolutely perfect for each other.
The wedding day started with Simone getting ready at her parents house, surrounded by her lovely bridesmaids and family. We then zipped over to downtown Toronto at St. Mary's Church on Bathurst & Adelaide. One of my most memorable moments of the day is the bridesmaids showing off their dance moves in the limo on the way to the church to Old Town Road.
After the ceremony we stopped off at Osgoode Hall for bridal party photos & some portraits of S+B. It was super hot, sunny and busy with tourists buzzing around everywhere and even a march happening right outside, but we managed to find the pretty quiet spots to get some INCREDIBLE photos. The reception hall was bustling with excitement as the bride & groom entered the hall and performed their very intricate, and very well rehearsed first dance.
The speeches made basically everyone in the room cry, including yours truly, especially when Brian's voice started shaking a little as he uttered the word "Wife" for the very first time. The families from all over the world were not shy to get up on the dancefloor and bust a move.
S+B, you're such huge babes. I truly appreciate being a part of your incredible wedding. We cried, we danced, we drank champagne and we had a blast. Thank you so much for being so amazing to work with and bringing the smiles and genuine laughter to the photos.
