If you have never been to a wedding at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto I’m sorry to tell you that you are missing out. When Aaron & Kathleen first approached me about shooting their Gladstone Hotel Wedding I literally crossed all my fingers and prayed to the wedding photography gods to make them book with me. As a past patron of the Gladstone for social events (and some pretty epic Karaoke) I knew that this charming boutique hotel was full of character & history – the perfect place for an intimate wedding.
Fast forward a few months and I finally met K&A in person at their engagement session. They were adorable, a little shy, and just so so sweet. Their warmth and love for each other is contagious! My excitement over their upcoming wedding got a little out of control at that point – incredible venue AND dream clients???? Too good to be true! But it was all real. And I loved every moment.
Kathleen & Aaron are not flashy people. They wanted to create an intimate and fun space for their deeply cherished family & friends – nothing over the top. The entire day was relaxed, friendly, and beautiful. Their creativity and personalities shone through in all the carefully selected details – if only every wedding were as wonderfully unique! These two did things their way from having the groom’s sister officiate to a completely private 1st dance that even I was not privy to. Ugh so perfect. Going through these photos to select which ones to blog left me a little teary-eyed, this was maybe one of my all-time favourite days and I’ll miss it. I hope you enjoy the photos & be sure to scroll down to catch the list of incredible vendors who lent their talents to a pretty wonderful day. xo
