RAD, RAD, RAD ROYAL CONSERVATORY OF MUSIC WEDDING

Written by Jessica - Posted October 17th - Photographs by A Brit & A Blonde

My love affair with this couple started last October and involved a giant helium balloon that we dubbed Earl. And although Earl couldn’t make it to the wedding, on account that he is a giant helium balloon and he deflated shortly after the shoot last year. His joie de vivre and never say die attitude will not soon be forgotten. His spirit lives on in the images which were featured on Style Me Pretty capturing our fun pumpkin patch fall engagement shoot. Earl forever.

The wedding ceremony took place in the heart of Toronto at Trinity Chapel within the University of Toronto campus. It is, in a word breathtaking. Katherine and Andrew had a family friend marry them – which always makes for a lovely more personal ceremony. The Toronto Royal Conservatory of Music, just a short stroll up Philosopher’s Walk from Trinity Chapel was the spot for cocktails, reception and general radness. A perfect venue for these lovebirds since as a child, Katherine played many recitals here. They also both really love music – we swapped epic concert stories (including that time my friends and I saw Chris Murphy from Sloan on the street in Montreal and we literally followed him for 20 blocks – I was 14. We were not Underwhelmed and yes it is a word. I looked it up. It’s one of those skills I learned in my school.)  We also bonded over our over-the-moonness that the radio station Indie 88 now exists. Alan Cross and the Ongoing History of New Music forever.

Rebecca from Rebecca Chan Weddings & Events did a truly stunning, standing ovation worthy job. The decor and planning was top notch. It was a super fun day with a super fun couple. We adore these guys. Weddings where four of your friends put on an impromptu dance party in the window forever.

 

 

A LIL’ BIT OF AN AWESOME AIRSHIP 37 WEDDING

Written by Jessica - Posted September 24th - Photographs by A Brit & A Blonde

Yvonne & Kevin have style for miles. So it comes as no surprise that on their wedding day they would be looking every inch dapper to the dapperist degree. They wore traditional Chinese Cheongsam and Changshan in red and in gold – and the colours popped incredibly well against our downtown Toronto backdrops. They would be easily found in a game of Where’s Waldo but when you look that lovely who cares!

The day started off in Scarborough with door games & a Chinese tea ceremony at Yvonne’s parents home. And then to Toronto for some fun photos in and around the city before doing a quick wardrobe change into their next outfits for the ceremony and reception at Airship 37. It was raining on and off but Mother Nature held out long enough for us to capture some lovely moments – so thank you MN we owe you one for sure.

Airship 37 is just next to the Distillery District and is a wonderfully blank canvas that you can really make your own. Their 120 guests came from far and wide to celebrate their big day. And the couple blended their Chinese and Jamaican heritage super nicely throughout the wedding – with both Chinese and Jamaican beers for cocktails, bamboo used in the ceremony which is prevalent in both cultures and also by including both a Fortune Cookie and Jamaican rum cake as a guest favour. Hats off to Yvonne who took on all the planning and did a truly beautiful job.

Kevin & Yvonne what a fun day from start to finish. You guys are Old Hollywood classy inside and out.
