Steph & Carl are married! Blackalls Park Reserve & Toronto Wedding Photography
Steph and Carl’s wedding had a real home grown flavour to it. They transformed their back year into an amazing space for their reception, set up cool hang out areas around their property and had family and friends chipping in helping to make this day very special.
The boys were just down the road getting ready at Carl’s sisters place and other then Carl not having any pants to wear if was a pretty cool and relaxed part of the day. The missing pants were soon found back at home and a quick dash down the road and we were back on track 🙂
When I arrived to see Steph and the girls I was amazed at the amount of work that went into transforming their backyard for this very special day. The marquee was huge and it certainly came in handy later in the evening as a decent sized storm decided to join the wedding.
Steph and Carl chose Blackalls Park Reserve as the location for the lake side ceremony. Just minutes down the road it kept with the home grown theme of their day. Fortunately the weather held out while they exchanged their vows and before you knew it they were Mr & Mrs!
The Heritage Train Station in Toronto was the setting for most of the photos and it was an awesome place to photograph. It was my first time in this location so I made the most of it. Hopefully I can make my way back there soon as there is so many ways I think you could use this location in photos.
We headed back to the reception just in time as the first few drops of rain started to fall. With in minutes the storm hit but all the work had paid off and everyone stayed dry. The dance floor did get a little wet but again all hands were on deck to clean it up before the first dance.
All in all even with the storm it was an amazing and fun wedding to be a part of. The bridal party were super relaxed and I felt like a guest at their wedding. Steph and Carl were the perfect couple for me too making my job not just easy but fun too.
