Evergreen Brickworks is one of my favourite places in Toronto. A must-go green heaven in the city.
This venue is a perfect location to host your wedding reception.
The combination of the old factory buildings and the greenery around it creates a great spot for a whimsical wedding!
Knowing Dani and Jordan from their engagement session at Scarborough Bluffs, I knew the wedding was going to be full of love. They are funny people and very fitting for each other. They don’t take each other too seriously which, to be honest, helps to take candid shots in between all of the moments!
First, I love to capture the beginning of the day! The energy in the air is busy while everyone is running around to get ready. With every minute counting down to the ceremony, the tension grows a little bit more. Before the aisles, Dani and Jordan decided to do a first look. Family and friends were able to watch from a distance.
The reveal is everything! Seeing Dani, a vision of a bride and the emotions on Jordan’s face was a photographer’s dream!
Next, The ceremony. The venue is surrounded by brick walls, creating less of a traditional vibe but full of Jewish traditions. An indoor nuptials filled with guests excited for the couple. At the end of the traditional Jewish ceremony, the couple seals the deal by breaking the glass.
I love that Dani and Jordan chose to twist this tradition and both broke the glass at the same time! Mazeltow! After the ceremony, everything started! The hora dance was the longest hora so far which I photographed.
More than 15 minutes of dancing, people being lifted on chairs and jumping straight into the crowd! It’s a photographer’s dream to be able to capture so many emotions in such a short period! I knew that the hora dance would be pure madness. I made sure to have higher viewpoints. The crowd dancing shook the venue! So much so that my chair swung. Luckily one of the guests who was standing next to me noticed that and held the chair for the rest of the hora!
The rest of the night was a huge concert for guests. The Toronto Orchestra made sure everyone was up on the dancefloor. By the end of the night, Dani who used to dance professionally and her friends surprised Jordan by making a choreographed flashmob dance! What a show! Lucky Jordan! The wedding matched the spark they had! I’m glad that Dani and Jordan chose me to capture all the moments that they will cherish for years to come!
Dani and Jordan thank you for making me a part of your amazing wedding!
