Jessica & Jeff’s gorgeous Graydon Hall & Auberge du Pommier wedding in Toronto was a truly beautiful celebration of love!
Graydon Hall Garden Wedding Ceremony & Auberge du Pommier wedding Reception
The weather was perfect & sunny, and Jessica & Jeff held a stunning Filipino wedding ceremony outside at Graydon Hall Manor. The couple took part in such lovely Christian Filipino wedding traditions as the wedding cord & the Arrhae (the exchange of unity coins).
A celebratory open air lunch reception was held outside on Graydon Hall’s patio. It was one of the most beautiful setups I’ve ever seen at a Graydon Hall wedding!
The highlight was absolutely the surprise arrival of a genuine mariachi band. This was a complete shock to the Bride & Groom, secretly hired by one of their best friends. It was seriously one of the most hilarious moments I’ve ever seen at a Toronto wedding! Luckily Jess & Jeff are such a great time, they loved it and totally embraced the surprise entertainers. I asked them to come out and pose with the mariachi band, and Jeff even suggested borrowing a guitar & trumpet for a few photos. This resulted in one of my favourite images captured last year.
Jessica & Jeff had a really unique day where they held an outdoor lunch reception at Graydon Hall for family, followed by a dinner reception at the renowned Toronto fine restaurant Auberge du Pommier. As gorgeous as Graydon Hall is for photography, I knew Auberge was also stunning and I couldn’t wait to capture some additional photographs of the wedding party in front of the restaurant.
Beautiful Light at this Auberge du Pommier Wedding
The light at this Auberge du Pommier wedding was absolutely gorgeous. Jessica & Jeff almost glowed! The signage at Auberge du Pommier was lovely and there was a perfect spot at the entrance for wedding party portraits. We took advantage of some quiet time before the Auberge du Pommier wedding reception dinner guests arrived. I loved seeing Jess & Jeff surrounded by so many amazing friends, all having the best time at their Auberge du Pommier cocktail reception! Cocktail hour was held outside, and even though it was hot the drinks were flowing and the guests were joyous.
A quiet moment at this Auberge du Pommier Wedding Reception
One of the couple’s favourite moments happened right at the end of my coverage. Jess & Jeff were taking a private moment together. Jeff was checking his emails and Jess was reapplying her lipstick. Sometimes it’s the simplest moments that make the best images. Jess & Jeff both said they love this image as much as I do. As they put it, “it’s so us.”
A huge thank you to Jessica & Jeff for asking us to capture not only your gorgeous Yorkville engagement photos but also your absolutely beautiful Graydon Hall wedding ceremony & lunch, followed by your Auberge du Pommier wedding reception!
