Jonathan and Dennis, where to begin? We had such an amazing time with you and your family and friends on your wedding day and we are so excited to share these photos with you.
We first met Dennis and Jonathan at Dennis’ brother’s wedding last summer. We knew after meeting them and watching them in action on the dance floor that night that their own day was going to be full of incredible style and energy. We were so right! When we first walked into their penthouse suite at the Thompson Hotel, we were warmly welcomed by Jonathan and Dennis who were in a state of calm and contentment (something we rarely witness with our couples pre-ceremony). We then totally swooned over the natural light flooding the contemporary decor, which was a photographer’s dream. As we photographed their details, Jonathan and Dennis shared stories of their meeting and their engagement – their love and adoration for one another so plainly visible. The easiest way to describe these two is that they share a chemistry and zest for life that is so infectious that you can’t help but want to be around them. To meet them is to fall in love with them. And we fell. Head over heels.
After heading out for some photographs with their wedding party around the hotel and in the streets of Toronto, we ventured back to the Thompson Hotel for their rooftop ceremony with the amazing cityscape as their backdrop. Their ceremony was short and sweet and beautiful. Their reception then followed in the Wellington Ballroom of the hotel where craziness broke out in the photo booth. (To see images from their photo booth, click here.) After some heartfelt, tearful speeches, they danced and partied all night to the live music of “Soular” which was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!
Congratulations to J&D, the Bulldog and the Panda. We SO enjoyed sharing in your special day.
