Andrea and Ian are an extremely creative, crafty and romantic couple. Andrea made her dress out of her mom’s wedding dress. You can see the original on Andrea’s blog at the following link:
Andrea started out her day by getting ready at Teti Hair Salon. Not only did they do a great job, they also finished ahead of schedule.
Check out her Fluevog shoes.
I love how there were regular clients getting their hair done at the salon when Andrea was getting ready for her wedding. Those clients loved watching a bride!
The wedding ceremony took place at Toronto City Hall.
City Hall allows a maximum of around 30 guests and we were at capacity, so these two were definitely surrounded by lots of love!

The famous Toronto sign changed. I wondered if they changed it monthly, but then realized it was changed for Nuit Blanche, Toronto. Andrea and Ian were quite happy about that. I think the black and white Toronto sign goes a lot better with their retro tandem bike and retro style than the colourful sign. Note their friends on bikes. They had escorts as they biked from City Hall to Peter Pan Bistro for the reception.
Don’t you love the “Just Married,” sign on the bike?
The guests really enjoyed each other’s company at Peter Pan Bistro.
Ian looking dapper, as always. He made his own jacket!
Finally, the pictures many of you have been waiting to see…Andrea in her wedding dress! Front, side and back. Note that the dress has pockets. Remember, she sewed this dress out of her mother’s wedding gown.
Andrea picked up the flowers for her bouquet four days before the wedding and made her bouquet the day before her wedding. Ian used the burgundy ribbon to wrap the gift he gave her on her birthday, which was also their third date. They have used it to wrap presents ever since, including her engagement ring.
They had a macaron tower from Nadege. One of her friends said there is an “Andrea 5”-Ian, sewing, physics, macarons and lindy hop.
The “Andrea and Ian” pose. Yes, they have their own pose!
Andrea has the best umbrella. If you speak french, you will know what that means.
They managed to stay grounded.
Congrats on your marriage, having such a fantastic wedding day and on successfully incorporating so much of yourselves into your wedding. I love your willingness to try anything and of course, how you are not afraid to show your love for each other in the photos.
We got both Buddha rays and raindrops on the same day! That lost shot is terrific. And I love that you captured Ian’s intense look while I kept cracking up at him during the ceremony.Thanks so much Danielle!
Fabulous job, Danielle! You captured both their personalities beautifully! Your commentary is so apt. (Was pleased to see my Christmas gift to Andrea came in useful – that umbrella!)

Love the photos. Cool way for the couple to arrive on a bike.
