Collette Grand Cafe Wedding

Collette Grand Cafe Creates a Parisian Setting for a Wedding in Toronto:

It’s true! The Collette Grand Cafe creates a Parisian setting for a wedding in Toronto. The ceremony was held in Trinity College at the University of Toronto and was a magnificent space. As we transitioned to the Collette Grand Cafe downtown for the reception, it felt as though we had been transported to Paris!

From the quirky and fun groom, and his stunning bride, to the Parisian styled Collette Grand Cafe, this wedding was a treat for the eyes. I shot a wedding a little while back where the same sort of rays of sunshine poured down over the ceremony. It is such a fortuitous gift for your wedding day since it makes the photos look so magical. Click here if you would like to see the other wedding where the rays of sun dazzled around the bride and groom.

Beauty Lies in the Details:

The little details really made this wedding stand out. It was so cute how the grooms had embroidered their high school nicknames into their suit jackets with such unique flair! Charlotte and Jonny’s love story starts in 2001. After 17 years together they said “I do” in front of their loved ones. They followed this stunning ceremony with a reception at the beautiful Collette Grand Cafe in Toronto (if you haven’t been I highly suggest a visit soon). We could not have asked for a more beautiful day! Just look at how the sun pours through the stone church windows down on the couple as they said their vows? We ended the whole evening with the beautiful couple looking out over their beloved Toronto skyline while they shared their first dance.

Thank you Charlotte and Jonny for letting me capture your beautiful day. I love shooting at old iconic buildings in Toronto. The charm of these places brings such character to the photos we capture for your wedding. My favourite part of the job is snapping shots of the intimate and candid moments. It is such a gift for the happy couple to be able to relive all these emotions for years to come!
