Inspiration for your wedding?

Our wedding colours were coral (salmon) and grey. At the reception, the lights were soft corals and gold. We didn’t have a theme to our wedding, but if we had to pick one, it would be fairytale, happily ever after.

Your Wedding Story as told by the photographer:

I’ve never met a bride who had such a big smile on her wedding day. Ashley was glowing even before she stepped into her gorgeous dress, it had a beautiful low back that was complemented by a waist detailed belt with a big bow.

Ashley and Jerven wedded at the Toronto West Seventh-day Adventist Church. Jerven looked so proud to be marrying her and I don’t blame him! Ashley has a smile that could win just about anybody’s heart. I won’t forget how cute it was to see Jerven so eager to give his wife a kiss at the end of the ceremony. He went in for it and the pastor quickly remarked “Oh no! not yet!” which made everyone laugh.

There was so much love and joy at this wedding (and luck, too!). Although it was so sunny and bright in the morning, it rained so much during the ceremony and then brightened up at the end. It again rained during the reception, but the weather held up for the portraits in between, thankfully. It was such a hot and humid day, but everybody looked stunning. Ashley and Jerven had fourteen bridesmaids and groomsmen by their side, dressed in gorgeous coral.

We headed over to Humber Arboretum for the photos, which is a great location for wedding photos. It has nice open space, with beautiful greenery and lots of shade.

The decor for the reception had lovely pink up-lighting and cute wedding favours in purple and pink gift boxes. I love wedding receptions because this is when everyone relaxes and has a great time.

The glowing couple had their first dance as husband and wife in the middle of a heart shaped flower petal ring with dry ice that divinely engulfed them. Loved it! It made for some really nice photos, for sure.
