Gabriel and Hannah’s winter wedding day started at Hiram Walkers. It was there that the bride and groom shared their “First Look” in a large empty room upstairs. It was absolutely genuine and romantic. After they enjoyed their private moment together, the rest of the wedding party joined in for some photos.
We wanted to incorporate Hannah and Gabriel’s love of books into their wedding photos – while staying out of the cold. Naturally Biblioasis was a perfect spot! It is a welcoming and quaint little bookstore in the heart of Old Walkerville. The couple’s day was spaced out so nicely. We had some great opportunities to shoot in different locations and take our time making sure things were just right. The wedding party even had time to grab lunch across the road at Vito’s Pizzera before heading over to the Apostolic Christian Church for the ceremony. These people knew how to make the most out of their timeline and savour each moment.
Their winter inspired reception took place at Ciociaro Club. We loved the accents of pine cones and greenery around the room. It was tasteful and cozy!
Gabriel and Hannah, we are so glad we met you! You are two of the kindest and sweetest people – a joy to be around. The love that you have for God and each other is evident and wonderful. We feel so happy that you have trusted us to tell your story through photographs. All the best on this new journey as husband and wife!
