Andrea & Josh's Royal Canadian Yacht Club Wedding


Andrea and Josh got married on a beautiful day in July at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club in Toronto. The weather was absolutely perfect for their big day; partly sunny, partly cloudy, with a nice summer breeze coming off of Lake Ontario. They had all of their closest friends and family come by boat to the island to enjoy their intimate wedding ceremony under the willow trees where they recited personal vows. Andrea walked down the aisle to beautiful live music played by a four string quartet. After the ceremony, their guests enjoyed games, personalized cocktails, and delicious hor d'oeuvres with the stunning Toronto skyline serving as a backdrop. Andrea and Josh envisioned their day as an intimate and vintage affair and they achieved it perfectly with antique gold pieces and details, a dessert table with sweets made by their family and friends, and antique cameras, vases, and wooden crates that held homemade jams for their guests to take home to remember their day. The Royal Canadian Yacht Club was the perfect choice for their Toronto wedding as when you step off the boat onto the island it is almost like you have landed in a different era, or that’s how I felt at least! The Club has a certain southern charm to it and a slower pace than the regular Toronto hustle and bustle, which is why I loved it so much (Seriously recommend this place!).  The couple chose sweet, white dresses for the bridesmaids and casual, neat, tan suits for the groomsmen. Andrea and Josh were such a great couple to work with. They were so happy to be married and so in love and I believe it shows in their wedding photos. 

Thank you so much to my friend Heather of With Love Heather for having me shoot this amazing wedding with her.
