Back when Dallas contacted us to shoot her wedding, I was honoured because Dallas is a fellow photographer located in Montreal, but she was getting married to her sweetheart Brian here in Toronto.
The ceremony and reception all took place in one of my favourite venues in Toronto – The Berkeley Church, a historical Toronto wedding venue that was built in 1871 and has some of the most unique and interesting spaces a photographer could ask for!
Much of Dallas & Brian’s wedding was DIY, as Dallas is clearly very creative! Justin and I particularly loved the vinyl records used as table charts and table numbers. The entire wedding, from the bride & groom’s fashion choices to the decor had a fun, retro vibe which totally suited the happy couple. Check out this month’s issue of Toronto Life Weddings to see featured images from the couple’s amazing DIY projects. My favourite might be the cake toppers. When I asked Brian why the flamingo and T-Rex, he said “well Dallas likes flamingos and I like dinosaurs”. Simply awesome.
Congratulations Dallas & Brian – your wedding was so much fun to shoot. Thank you for trusting us to capture your wedding day and for letting us be as creative as we wanted as we created these images along with you.
