From Nikki Mills, Photographer...This wedding was really lovely. The couple, Jennifer & Simon, met at U of T a few years ago and decided to get married at Knox College. They have been engaged for a while, but decided on a whim to tie the knot a little sooner and threw this together fairly quickly using their favorite spots around the city they have enjoyed as a couple.
The bride is an artist, and it certainly showed in her unique style, the black bird-cage veil and red lipstick were very striking. This was definitely a wedding where they spent their money carefully, thoughtfully and on very specific things to create exactly what they wanted.
As a couple they had spent many hours at the galleries in the Gladstone Hotel, so they both got ready there before the ceremony. The Racine room was beautiful and made the perfect backdrop for photographs. They got ready together, very untraditional, but they were so sweet and tender with one another, and Simon helped Jennifer with her shoes and dress, and even her earrings. We spent some time wandering around the hotel, looking at the art and enjoying the building. We went down to the bar where they ordered a drink and waited for their 1951 Rolls Royce to arrive to drive to the ceremony. The car was beautiful and we took some great shots on the way to U of T.
The ceremony was sweet, their vows very touching, and it was all very relaxed. After that everyone went over to Celestine for an elegant dinner.
