Cindy and Matthew’s Wedding – Liberty Entertainment’s Toronto Casa Loma Conservatory and By Peter and Paul’s Paramount Event Space

That morning, I quickly learned that Cindy’s father is practically a comedian: he is filled with so much fun and is such a joker. Later, I discovered that Matthew’s father has quite the sense of humour too! Throughout the day, it was really refreshing to see and hear how affectionate both Cindy and Matthew’s parents are to their children. Loved that!

We needed some space to showcase Cindy’s gorgeous, flowing, white dress, so we started the morning off with moving around some furniture. That early morning sweaty workout totally paid off! Wedding dresses that feature sheer lace overlays and stunning details on the back are very popular this year. It’s elegant and timeless: a trend that I’m a huge fan of :)

We were able to access Casa Loma a few minutes before it opened to the public, so thankfully, we were able to enjoy utilizing some the castle and the gardens for photographs before it filled up with tourists! It’s too bad that we’re only allowed to utilize a few specific interior rooms as there are so many other photogenic spaces around such an expansive and historic estate. Regardless, the Conservatory was a beautiful sunlit venue for their ceremony. And I’m glad that “Bear” got to join in on the celebration too (since he’s been a part of their relationship from the beginning)!

As a fellow “foodie”, Cindy was super excited telling me about their amazing wedding cake! They had it custom made with an image from one of their favourite manga (Japanese comics) that takes place in a futuristic world and time modelled after Venice, Italy. Plus, the gold gilt detail on the cake was unbelievable!

Congratulations, Cindy and Matthew! Now, I MustEatMore! ;) #MCLovin_2017

Jessica and Manshun’s Wedding – Markham Museum, Scarborough Chinese Baptist Church (SCBC), and Sala Caboto at Columbus Event Centre

We’ve been experiencing some strange weather this year in Toronto with non-stop rain. Well, the rain decided to take a break so that Manshun (and his groomsmen) could “prove himself worthy” of Jess through a series of challenges known as Traditional Chinese Door Games. The bridesmaids had a series of tasks ready for them to complete such as feeding themselves candy by gyrating, enduring a session of leg hair removal with hot wax, eating hot peppers, and copying a Backstreet Boys’ dance routine. Amazingly, the torrential downpour even held out until the last few minutes of our creative portrait session, when we perfectly found a verandah to find some shelter from the heavy rain.

Jessica’s parents are so funny. Their example of what the “perfect kiss” is and their speech at the dinner reception had everyone laughing: “I’m watching you”! At the end of the night, super talented Jessica played guitar (a fellow Larrivée guitar owner!) and sang a heartwarming love song to Manshun: while he didn’t cry, almost everyone else did! When the lights dimmed and the music started, it was refreshing to see so many people gathered together having fun on the dance floor!

Congratulations #JessManshun! :)
