{reality wedding} Ashley & Daniel’s Elegant and Classic wedding in Toronto, ON

Spontaneous Spring snow storms, months of long distance wedding planning and some gorgeous wedding photos are just a few of our favourite things in Ashley & Daniel’s elegant, classic reality wedding story. From the stunning venue encompassing brick and beam design to the elegant reception décor – gold table runners, gold chivari chairs and lit by golden candlelight – this is one photo gallery we were happy to fall in love with.

Biggest Planning Challenges: Our wedding was in Toronto yet we live in Ottawa, so organizing it from afar was a bit of a challenge.  We also had a freak April snowstorm during the reception, but our amazing photographer pulled us outside to take some amazing photos and make the best of it!
DIY Details: We kept to our theme pretty closely, using the same features on our invitations as we did for the signage and menus at the venue.  We also made the sparkly props for the Photo Booth, which I think made the pictures really pop!
