How do you plan a wedding from across the globe during a pandemic? Well, if you are smart like Kristy & Joel, you hire a pretty damn good wedding planner and his amazing team! Kristy and Joel met in Toronto, and moved across the world to Germany to pursue their dream job in fashion. As many couples had to change their plans more than once during COVID, Kristy and Joel had to switch their plans a few times. After changing their venue twice, they finally had their intimate wedding at the Vue in Toronto. When I arrived on the morning of their wedding, they were both beaming with so much joy. There was no shortage of energy and laughter throughout the day, and this energy kept me going.
Shooting weddings with moments unfolding around you require photographers to be ON mentally. When you are shooting for more than 8 hours, you need the energy to keep you going. When you have such a fun group of people to work with where everyone’s energy meshes so well, it doesn’t feel like work at all. Walking into Joel’s place, I felt immediately welcomed by his mom – she invited me to the table to enjoy some brunch before starting the day! It’s so true what Maya Angelou said, you will never forget how people make you feel. Thank you for making me feel so welcome at your home!

The intimate ceremony took place overlooking the golf course at the Vue, and reception under the large white tent. Kristy & Joel surprised everyone with their amazingly choreographed dance under the string lights. Everyone danced the night away under the string lights and I loved that it was all outdoors!
