Tell us your story!: “Derek and I met through a co-worker of mine. At the time I was working in downtown Toronto and had to take a company car home for the week. I was too scared to drive it home so my co-worker offered, but we had to stop and pick up his friend along the way. That friend was Derek, who was just coming from the dentist after having his wisdom teeth pulled out. From that day on we hung out in group settings for about a year. Derek and my co-worker came to my 25th birthday party at a club downtown, where Derek and I found ourselves on a rooftop, I asked him if I could kiss him… he said yes, and the rest is history.”

How did you find your photographer?: “Trent and I went to elementary school together. I followed him on Facebook and Instagram and just fell in love with his work. It was a no-brainer to ask him to cover our wedding! I love the candid shots that Trent took. No posing just everyone in their natural element.” – C

Biggest Challenge: “Finding the right venue. We wanted something that felt good to us. We visited quite a few venues and ultimately fell in love with the Glen Erin Inn. It offered a beautiful space for the ceremony, and reception, as well as accommodations. The food had amazing reviews, and our guests also complimented the food!” – C

Best Memory: “All of it, it was such a whirlwind of a day!” – C

Any advice for couples planning their wedding?: “Take your time and do your research. You are in control, it’s your day!” – C
