2014 has been a wild winter for weather, and Franca & Dwayne’s Royalton Hall Wedding day was no different. As an Ottawa-based wedding photographer, I’m used to snow and cold, but I was hoping that Franca & Dwayne’s wedding in Woodbridge, North of Toronto, would be a nice treat. WRONG! On my way to Franca’s parents’ house in the morning, there was enough snow to cause multiple pile-ups on the Highways, and the driving stayed pretty scary all day. The weather made the travel between venues a bit slower, but we still had enough time to get some great photos, and it was a fantastic day overall. Franca & Dwayne are amazing people, super nice to work with, and their families and friends could not have been more welcoming. I genuinely felt like I was an honorary Italian for the day.
This was my first “Woodbridge Italian Wedding”, and whoa…something else. I’ve never seen a 400lb wheel of Grana Padano cheese before. I was trying to think of how I could get the leftover in my SUV after the wedding.
I was assisted by Sam Obeid, a Wedding photographer in Toronto, as an assistant and 2nd photographer for the entire wedding day. We had a lot of fun (as always), and I think between us we captured the spirit of this incredible day pretty well. Enjoy – here are some of my favorites:
