From Mango Studios... Hands down, this classy Casa Loma wedding was one of the highlights of the summer. I loved working with Christina and Michael and meeting their (extensive) Italian family! Everyone was so friendly and warm – they managed to make me feel like I was their childhood friend right away! Looking back at it, I’m starting to think that this is exactly why I love being a wedding photographer. It opens up lives and lets you connect with various people, not only in your own neighborhood or hometown, but also with a lot of families and couples from all over the world! I’ve been photographing weddings for more than 10 years now, and I believe that being able to get to know so many wonderful people and tell their story in pictures is what has kept me fascinated with this industry for such a long time.

Christina and Michael met 10 years ago in Montreal, one of the most romantic cities in Canada. Michael’s friend made a last-minute suggestion to visit the city. Since his university was on strike that week, Michael decided to give the trip a try. There they met up with Christina and her best friend, who happened to be Michael’s friend’s girlfriend. Christina and Michael fell for each other almost instantly and have been together ever since. Isn’t it such a sweet story?

Weddings are a family affair, and it clearly felt like it as we started the day at Christina’s family home – the whole atmosphere was filled with joy and happiness! Christina looked super chic in her Zuhair Murad wedding gown, and I loved how the family pup was also wearing a formal bow tie. It was raining that whole week, but the rain didn't stop us from taking their outdoor creative portraits in Casa Loma’s beautiful garden. The gloomy weather even played out well, as the overcast sky let us shoot in the most unexpected-yet-scenic Casa Loma corners, which would’ve been impossible otherwise! Something Different Events worked their magic and turned the castle’s pavilion into a stunning reception featuring crystal chandeliers and loose florals from D&D Floral.

Christina and Michael, thank you so much for making me feel at home and being the sweet couple you are! I wish you all the best and can’t wait to photograph more of life’s special moments with you.
