The Thompson Hotel in Toronto has been on my wedding bucket list foreeeevvver. How excited was I when a fellow photographer referred an unbelievably awesome couple to me for this exact location? Whoa. You have no idea.
I met with Georgina & Jake in Toronto just a few short months before their October wedding and was immediately struck by 2 things. The first was George’s smile – she smiles & laughs with her entire heart. It’s so endearing and you can’t help but fall in love with her right away. The second thing was the way Jake looks at Georgina – he’s more of a strong silent type but he is clearly her biggest fan. They were the sweetest pair and I jumped at the opportunity to tell their story.
G&J’s wedding day was FREEZING cold and so windy. As you can imagine it threw a couple snags into their plan for a rooftop wedding at the Thompson with a view of the Toronto skyline. There was no way weather was going to rattle these two – they rolled with the punches and trusted their amazing vendors to get the ceremony set up in the safest & most comfortable way possible The floral team from Roadside Florist tucked the beautiful chuppah out of the wind and everything went perfectly. Shadow the rescue dog was the sweetest flower pup escorting Georgina’s adorable little nieces down the aisle. Guests snuggled under warm blankets with drinks in hand as they watched 2 of their favourite people tie the knot.
We had the best time with this wonderful group from the moment we stepped into their hotel suite. It was a beautiful, unique day that was perfectly Georgina & Jake. I think it will always be one of my favourites. Be sure to scroll down to check out the super talented team behind this lovely day ~ xo.
