I honestly think that I was literally counting down the days to Dani & Daniel’s big day. From our first chit chat, I knew that their wedding was going to be super rad. We laughed and guffawed together from the first minute- the neighbours probably thought I had installed my own laugh track and studio audience. When I shot their engagement shoot in NYC at the High Line last summer, I kinda wanted to just hang out with them all weekend. They are a perfect match in every way.
These lovebirds are both lawyers and had actually been doing the long distance thing – commuting between the Big Apple and the Tdot. Gotta love Porter Airlines for making that easier to manage with Toronto City Airport. Since both New York City and Toronto were a big part of their lives – it seemed totally fitting that their engagement shoot take place in one and the wedding in the other. That way neither city would be jealous and all would be right with the world.
The Burroughes Building is a total favourite wedding venue space of ours in the heart of Toronto. Dani & Daniel had come across the images we had shot for Yaryna & Jason’s wedding there a year before and got in touch with us. One of their friends and talented designer Wendy Chin created the paper pieces and the design aesthetic of their big day. And the unbelievably sweet Krista Olynyk and her band of magical elves planned and orchestrated a most beautiful and cool reception. I have to give a standing ovation to the Food Dudes – who served 150 guests seamlessly and deliciously – I was in true awe of how they run logistics and their food is out of this world. Coriander Girl did the flowers which were absolutely divine.
Dani & Daniel got primped and prepped at the very cool Le Germain hotel – which is also where we did their first look. And then over to the Burroughes Building for killer cocktails, a lovely ceremony under the chuppah and delicious dins. If we can just take a second to admire Dani’s not one but two magnificent wedding dresses. The one she wore during cocktails was actually her mom’s wedding dress and I may or may not have thought about dress-napping it. Their big day would not be complete without a rambunctious horah – hold on to your kippahs friends. And a dance fest to end all dance fests – complete with tunes from a Brit DJ they had flown in for the event.
D&D we are so thrilled that you picked B&B to capture such a spectacular day. We heart you both.
