Where do we begin! We LOVE LOVE LOVE shooting at Casa Loma. It's a CASTLE with so much history and epic-ness! So when Shawna and Aaron told us they wanted us to shoot their wedding there, we were delighted.
We met Shawna & Aaron through theknot.com and we knew after speaking on the phone, that we just had to shoot their wedding.
The day began at Casa Loma with a few portraits of Aaron in one of their stunning bridal suites.
Aaron wore a blue suit from Rego and that boutonniere was created by BLUUMBLVD - stunning! We then met up with Shawna and were introduced to their beautiful daughter Izzy. For anyone looking to get married at Casa Loma, the bridal suites in the castle are both gorgeous BTW.
We did a classic "First look" at the entrance of the castle and continued right through romantics and family photos. It's a great idea to have a first look especially when a ceremony and reception are back to back. Ensuring photos are completed before hand allows for a relaxed photo session and a wonderful flow for guests, from ceremony to cocktails and reception.
and when we got hungry... we made time for ...
The ceremony was held in the conservatory among the beautiful stain glass windows and greenery. Mona Ng from Mona Consulting did an incredible job making sure the wedding was organized, beautiful and ran smoothly. It was a beautiful ceremony with Shawna's mom, Audrey Kaufman, as the officiant and baby Izzy as the flower girl - cue melting heart!
With the ceremony complete, it was PARTY time! The dinner was held in the castle's library. Table decor was by the fabulous BLUUMBLVD and printed stationary from Paperless Post. The cake was Dufflet - we had no idea they did wedding cakes but wow, it was absolutely gorgeous with each layer a different flavour.
The dancing and celebration continued until late into the night. Shawna and Aaron chose StereoFlavour and they were fabulous - they even had us dancing!
Congratulations Shawna, Aaron and Izzy on a fabulous wedding!!! We are thrilled that you chose us to capture it for you. Keep in touch!
