meg + brian // an intimate wedding at l'ouvrier restaurant downtown Toronto
After photographing so many weddings, the thing that stands out the most is how each one is so different according to the couples and their dreams. It feels almost silly and obvious to say that, but this is really what makes it so exciting for me!
Meg and Brian are not the kind of people who relish being the center of attention, so they decided to actually get married at their home, with only their closest family and witnesses present. There is something so comforting being surrounded not only by your closest family, but also all your daily things that make up your home. They exchanged their vows on the balcony, which their little pup was able to witness as well. We then headed to High Park for some sweet portraits of the newlyweds, and ended at the hip l'ouvrier restaurant on Dundas West. The restaurant's aesthetic perfectly matched their eclectic tastes, and the merriment went on late in the night. I would be remiss not to mention that the Crown Flora boys did all the gorgeous flowers, and I especially loved Meg's flower crown!
Here is what Meg had to say about that day and our experience together:
"We loved working with Danijela and are very happy that she photographed our wedding. For us it was a private & intimate event and she was the perfect fit for our style and the way we wanted to capture our day. We're both camera shy but she made us feel very comfortable and was so unobtrusive that we barely noticed her snapping away. The images she produced are also what we wanted - natural, relaxed, thoughtful, and fun. She's a great storyteller and we loved how she paid attention to all the little details of the day."
