The moment Matthew saw Amy- tired yet elated from traveling from New York by plane, train, and automobile to Pearson Airport in Toronto so she could surprise Matthew with a handmade sign saying, All I want for Christmas is You- he knew she was the one; they were all each other ever wanted. So on a warm August day, Amy and Matthew told one another in an intimate ceremony surrounded by love and warm wishes that all they wanted was to say I do, once and for all.
Amy’s morning started off with her and her best bridesmaids getting ready for the events of the day. Amy wore an elegant gown designed by Pronovias Barcelona, adorned with soft lace from top to bottom and a delicate veil; she pulled her outfit together with some classic Manolo Blahnik heels. Her bridesmaids each wore soft blush gowns from Here Comes The Bride.
Matthew and his guys began their day with some cold brews before getting dressed in sharp suits from Freeds. Matthew wore a dark navy suit created by Bosco Uomo, his look pulled together with a cream tie and dress shoes by ECCO.
The day was full of fun and celebration as Amy and Matthew’s wedding day continued from St. Joseph’s Church in Leamington to the reception at Mastronardi Estate Winery. Beautiful floral arrangements by The Flower Shop at Theissen’s adorned the room and muted pastels colours accented with gold details served as the perfect, romantic, backdrop to continue their festivities. The evening contained delicious food, heartfelt speeches, lots of dancing and most importantly, a lot of happiness bursting from Amy and Matthew!

We know your attention to detail, and being hand picked by you has meant a lot! We wish you both health, happiness and many, many, more adventures in the days ahead!

A Review from the Couple
“We put a painstaking amount of thought and consideration into every decision of our wedding planning. None was easier or more rewarding than choosing Manifesto Photography to capture our day. From our very first meeting Josh and Arica surpassed our lofty expectations and quickly became an integral part of our journey. They were a great source of support providing a sense of calm throughout the process especially on our hectic day. They are the consummate professionals and their work is second to none. As two very picky accountants, we were blown away with their attention to detail. Whether it was fixing stray hairs, correcting the arch of a back or changing the placement of the bouquet, they were on top of it. We also greatly appreciated their thorough preparation. It was because of their organized timeline that we were able to squeeze in so many precious shots in such a limited time. They were able to capture so many special moments and candid reactions of family and friends that we will cherish forever. Thank you! Josh and Arica are more than amazing photographers, they are great people and we would wholeheartedly recommend them to everyone! We look forward to seeing them at two more of our friends’ weddings later this year!” -Amy & Matthew
