As most of you lovelies know, A Brit & A Blonde spends November through May in sunny Costa Rica shooting destination weddings. From June through October we are back in Canada and the US shooting summer and fall wedding fabulosity. Which means – yes, we are using SPF 45 all year round and no, we don’t miss digging our car out of the snow.
So this past September, we had the great privilege and honour to shoot Jason & Yaryna’s seriously splendiferous soiree. A Brit and I both worked in advertising agencies for many a year before we made the move to life behind the lens. And Jason & Yaryna are both ad agency peeps who brought their creativity and eye for beautiful design to their wedding. Listen, Yaryna’s retro style dress is from top bridal boutique White Toronto– (pssst….it’s a Carolina Herrera wedding dress) so yeah its awesome. And her red Valentino bow heels to match her red pout – epic. Don’t think for one second that her groom would be upstaged by his stunning new bride – Jason channeled James Bond in his bespoke tuxedo from Gian Paolo Mazzotta (a most amazing place to buy a rad suit for your wedding) and for a bit of flare – yellow socks. Adorbs.
These two impeccably dressed lovebirds decided to take the TTC (Toronto’s public transport streetcar) to their wedding ceremony and reception at The Burroughes building on Queen Street West. They live right downtown so shooting their wedding portraits in and around Queen Street West was the perfect homage to their Toronto neighbourhood.
Wedding planner Lisa Allain of Visions of Platinum & Garnet rocked the casbah as only a casbah can be rocked. What can I say this Burroughes Building wedding had exposed brick, balloons & bow ties. Blimey.
I truly heart this wedding.
