Richha + Niket | Mhendi, Garba & Sangeet | Moon Palace, Cancun Mexico

It’s hard to describe the immensity of the events that took place for Richha and Niket’s week of wedding celebrations in Cancun Mexico. Richha (of Arora Weddings and Events) and Niket ensured their guests were well entertained the night prior to their ceremony with an incredible ambiance of bold colorful décor, hooka lounges, cigars and Mhendi station, signature cocktails and a party that went late into the night. The festivities began with several dance performances by family and friends followed by the traditional Garba dance, which was amazingly coordinated for the amount of people participating!

This was such an incredible night to document and be a part of.  EVERYONE danced liked nobody was watching and thanks to Nspire Sound, the music  and energy was like nothing I have experienced!  I look forward to sharing more of Richha and Niket’s week of ceremonies and celebrations soon.  Yeah Ricket2014!

Travel Themed Bridal Shower | As seen on The Wedding Co.

I have been excited to share a few images from the recent Bridal Shower of Richa Arora of Arora Wedding & Event Planning held at the Maclean House, Estates of Sunnybrook.  This shoot was recently featured on The Wedding Co blog, so please visit their site for more imagery and inspiration. http://www.theweddingco.com/travel-themed-bridal-shower/

Richha teamed up with Sara Baig Designs to co-produce a subtle travel theme to reflect hers and groom-to-be Niket’s casual-luxurious style.  Using soft hues of pink, white and green, each guest table was signified by a destination the couple had traveled to together.

Richha and Niket have since married …CONGRATS… and I am looking forward to sharing some beautiful moments from their week of wedding celebrations in Cancun Mexico soon!!!

Connie of White Cakery Co. created a work of art sweet table! Mini 24K brownies, tiered garden cookies, chocolate jewel cupcakes, jewelled apples and mini donuts (to name a few!) were displayed on mirrored chargers and pedestals on and off the table. The stunning cake was an interpretation of the beautiful invitation (designed by Naushin of Love, Paper and Ink) including sugared feathers and golden arrows and all the day of stationary was elegantly designed by Lexi, from Paper & Poste

Pegah + Houman | Toronto Maternity Photography

I had the pleasure meeting Pegah and Houman in their beautiful home to document their first pregnancy.  It’s always such an exciting time for a couple…preparing for the arrival of their new addition, and an exciting time for the mom-to-be to experiencing the changes of her growing belly.  I always want to make my expecting mothers feel comfortable, beautiful and special and give them images that they will look back upon and truly cherish.  I’m excited to share more of these images soon (Pegah was truly gorgeous and radiant in every photograph) but in the meantime, here are a few favorites from their shoot.

Congrats to Pegah and Houman…your son is truly blessed to get sweet parents like you.

Congratulations Melissa + Derek | Grand Palladium Mexico

I am home again to this wintery cold after spending a week in Mexico for the beach wedding of Melissa and Derek at the Kantenah Grand Palladium.  This was an intimate and sweet ceremony (which I love more then anything) with a small handful of their close family and friends.  Having known Melissa (aka Rookie) for many years and knowing Derek through the maternity and newborn photo shoot of their beautiful daughter Jillian, it just felt like being with family.  It truly was a great week with my family and theirs, and I look forward to sharing some more memories of this special day soon.

Congrats Rookie and Derek!
