Annie+Paulo=Style



I think it was Lance Armstrong who said "If you ever get a second chance in life for something, you've got to go all the way." Well, that's exactly what Paulo did when he got the opportunity to meet up with Annie again - a girl he just couldn't get out of his head, even though they hadn't seen each other in ages & the timing wasn't quite right when they originally met.

But the second time around, they made it happen. And on their wedding, their timing was perfect!

Some of our favs from this great day with an amazing couple.

Manolo Blahniks and Christian Louboutins? Gotta love a bride with that kind of shoe devotion :)



Annie. Striking.





Getting ready for the big day involved some extra-special gifts for all the bridesmaids!



Paulo's no shoe slouch himself - check out his gift to all the groomsmen.



The guys rocking the cigars, the shades, and the Nikes.



A little attitude from the stylin' wedding party.



Paulo was so psyched to get to the church & marry his girl! Love this fun page from their album.


Some of our favs from ceremony (& just the cutest little ring-bearer you could ever ask for!).







A gorgeous blue-sky day for the happy husband & wife!



Loved the florals - the warms browns & greens were perfect for a fall wedding.



Under the boardwalk.



Last shoe shot, I promise!



Beautiful details at the Westwood Plateau, all coordinated by the very wonderful & helpful AlannaV at A Sweet Beginning. Always-fun-to-work-with Bruce from CloudNineCreative rounded out the team and of course, it would not be the same without the amazing Edmond (the most dedicated makeup artist ever!)



Almost forgot all the lovely print work! Which tied the colours and themes together so seamlessly - gorgeous design by Vincent of Medium Print.



What better way to make a grand entrance than to do your first dance? Love the drama of this image.



Congratulations, Annie + Paulo!

Michelle+Daniel=Vibrant



Personalities that fill up a room, warmth & laughter that that overflows it, and classic old-world beauty. Michelle and Daniel have so much energy together - they were practically bouncing with happiness the whole day. Suave and chivalrous matched with grace & style - a perfect couple!

Some of our favourites:



Getting ready.



I love how little Dani the flower girl is gazing up at the bride!



The beautiful Michelle - look at those eyes!



Daniel doing the Windsor.



And looking good before heading out to the church.



That moment of anticipation.



We've never seen this tradition of the groom greeting the bride & her father halfway down the aisle instead of at the alter before - it makes for such a nice vantage point. Love how the backlighting adds so much depth to this image.



One of my most favourite ceremony shots ever.



The wedding party was crazy-hot!



And crazy-fun! Bar-stops and shooters during the photo session - yup, we do have the best clients!



Oh yeah, bride and groom? Crazy-hot too :)









Simple & forever: Love.



Oh, 5o 1.2, how I love thee.


The Fairmount Waterfront was all decked out in rich tones of brown and gold. Melissa from the Ivory Room made sure everything ran smoothly. Laura, from Laura Ann Cinema captured the moments of the day.



Michelle and Daniel were in their own little world during their romantic First Dance.



Michelle & her father share a laugh.



Daniel literally swept his mom off her feet - I just love this sequence!


And of course, then things got crazy with the wedding party: dance-off!



Congratulations Michelle & Daniel - can't wait for you to see your gorgeous album design!
