An elegant Toronto Hunt Club Wedding | Country Club with a View
The first time I met Carolyne over coffee, I felt an instant connection to her. She was so easygoing and genuine. And as a hopeless romantic, I couldn’t help but gush over her and Angelo’s engagement.
Here’s how the story goes: they were travelling in Paris. One night they went out for a walk and stopped on a bridge (oops I can’t remember which one now, but let’s just say it was the wonderful Pont Alexandre III). Then the clock stroked midnight and the Eiffel tower lit up, and Angelo got down on one knee and asked Carolyne to marry him! I mean c’mon, how amazing is this?! It reminds me of Midnight in Paris, which also happens to be one of Carolyne’s favourite movies. What can I say? I love all stories that take place in La Ville Lumieré.
They wanted their wedding day to be a day that was filled with people they love and to be present to enjoy every moment. I truly think they did just that, and I feel that I was able to capture those in photographs. I think one of my favourite moments was during their thank-you speeches, Carolyne looked over to Angelo and said “I can’t wait to grow old with you”. With tears starting to well up in my eyes, I pressed my camera shutter. Every time I see that photo, I remember that moment. And therein lies the true magic of photographs right? As a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone. I can only hope that the photos I took will remind them of all the ones they remember from the day, and also the ones that they might not remember because they happened so fast.
Thank you guys for having me document your wonderful day, it was a pleasure to be a part of it and to record your story. xo
