Looking out the window of our office, it’s clear to see that we are still in the middle of winter. Bare trees and grey Toronto streets covered by dirty, shallow snow.
As we finish editing the many weddings shot last year, I can’t help but think about how welcome the sun and summer will be when it finally arrives.
It’s on such a warm, sunny summer day in August that we had the pleasure to capture great moments and emotions with Anessa and Chad.
GETTING READY PHOTOGRAPHY AT HOTEL X:
The Getting Ready session started at the newly built Hotel X on the Lake Shore waterfront. Hotel X, located at 111 Princes’ blvd, is one of the newest and best modern wedding venues in Toronto. This modern Hotel X wedding venue features great views and a great location on the Exhibition grounds of Toronto. Additionally, Lake Ontario is clearly visible from the rooms in which Anessa and Chad were getting ready.
FIRST LOOK AND PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION AT HOTEL X:
After a brief first look on the Fort Hall Walkway, we used a stunning white textured wall for a photo session. We love capturing remarkable moments and emotions, especially set against some interesting architectural or landscape backgrounds.
After the initial photo shoot, Anessa and Chad made their way to the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church for a beautiful ceremony with plenty of emotions. Chad’s Father played guitar during the ceremony in the church. Amazing!
A COFFEE DETOUR:
On the way back to the Hotel X wedding venue, Anessa and Chad stopped at the Starbucks located inside the hotel. The Couple is found often in a Starbucks. It makes sense that we captured these unique moments. We always suggest making the day your own and unique. We have never seen the same couple or the same wedding. Each wedding and each relationship is unique. Run with what feels like the two of you and let us capture those unique moments, whatever they may be.
WEDDING RECEPTION AT HOTEL X:
Hotel X features several reception venues at which we enjoy shooting. In our opinion, the most special is the Fort Hall, located on the main floor. This all-glass room provides stunning natural light through the walls made fully of windows. The room is a blend of the the Old Fort history and the chic hotel style.The Fort Hall Walkway even features the old foundation of the fort, visible beneath the all glass walkway. The reception was wonderful and included musical performances by both Chad’s brother and father.
WEDDING SUNSET SESSION AT HOTEL X:
We love shooting a sunset session with our couples and often suggest one when building a photography schedule. On your day, we watch closely near sunset for the best light and provide the best guidance for the exact timing of such a session.
Hotel X has one more amazing feature which makes it one of the best modern chic wedding venue in Toronto. Stunning balcony deck views located high above. They provide unobstructed views of the CN Tower, Toronto Skyline and Lake Ontario.
What a beautiful way to end the day with such a perfect, stunning couple. Thank you so much Anessa and Chad for making us a small part of your remarkable wedding day.
Remembering this special Summer day full of laughter and unique moments, we can’t wait for the warm weather to return!
