Folks & friends, I would love to introduce you to Tash & Ro. After capturing their wedding in Toronto at The Burroughes Building, I think that they might quite possibly be the most loved couple in Canada. Before their big day – Ro made a point of letting me know that essentially every single person that was involved with the wedding was a friend of theirs. From the bartenders to the security staff to the guitarist to the superstar DJs. Shannan Hayden of Couture Nuptials, a close friend rocked it out as their wedding planner. And of course they are good friends with someone who cooks incredible food – they had their friends at Lamesa Filipino Kitchen cater. What a treat that was – incredibly unique and a personal touch since Ro is also Filipino. For passed apps during cocktails they had a Filipino twist on poutine that was pretty much the best thing ever. Seriously are you making reservations yet at Lamesa - I am free tonight if you wanna go.
Needless to say there was a ton of love going on for these two lovelies. Jason & I were the only folks they had brought in that they didn’t know well. By the end of the night – we felt like getting in a big circle, arms linked and belting out the Sister Sledge Classic “We are family”. We didn’t. Mostly due to the fact that I am completely tone deaf. So my silence was my gift to everyone. But know that I was singing it on the inside in pitch perfect A Major that would make doves cry.
Perhaps the biggest star that day was a Rotti/German Shepard disguised as a mini Schnauzer – their dog Casper. He acted as the ring “barker” – with the rings fastened around his collar and very regally trotted down the aisle looking his dapperist. A big shout out to Kate from Unleashed in the City Toronto – who did an absolutely incredible job as Casper’s wrangler.
This rainy Saturday did not stop us from getting such fun and playful shots with Tash & Ro – The Burroughes Building is the perfect wedding venue rain or shine! It has so many nooks and crannies. So take that Mother Nature. We could have shot in there for days – especially if Lamesa was providing the grub!
