Nearly everyone who toasted Melanie and Steve on their wedding day commented on how well they complement one another. Their friends describe Steve as handsome, brilliant, passionate and opinionated while Melanie is lovely, thoughtful, kind and quirky. Together, they are lighthearted and quick to laugh. They share a love of listening to records, the Toronto Blue Jays, and spending their weekends with great friends. During quiet nights at home, Melanie will often scrapbook while Steve watches football. They revel in each other's company.
Together, they planned a wedding that was highly unique, personalized and perfectly suited to them and their loved ones. They hosted a blue-hued, midcentury modern-inspired fête set in a Victorian mansion bedecked with disco balls. Guests enjoyed a bbq feast, and were treated to frozen delights when an ice cream truck rolled in after dinner.
For their portraits, we hopped aboard the St. Clair Streetcar and were able to shoot in an empty car when the driver kindly locked the doors for us at the end of the line. We also explored the many hidden corners of their venue, De La Salle College Oaklands, taking advantage of the beautiful architectural features like turrets and grand staircases. It was an absolute dream to photograph in every way.
Melanie and Steve, thank you for giving me the gift of getting to capture your awesome day. I hope you had the most wonderful time on your Scandinavian honeymoon and I wish you many years of deep joy and heady adventure.
