Christine and Bryan had one of the shortest engagements of all the couples I have photographed. I think they were engaged for just 5 months, but you never would have guessed that, from all the thought that went into their wedding day.  It makes me wonder if everyone should have a shorter engagement, because they really pulled it off!

Their ceremony took place at Hart House at U of T. I was pretty excited about that, because my own wedding took place at Hart House.

Christine arrived at the wedding just a little after Brian.  I loved the light coming in on her face in this picture.  Brian was excitedly anticipating seeing Christine in her wedding dress for the first time.

Brian walked down the aisle very confidently.  Christine and her dad were all smiles as they made their way towards him.

“I do.”

I love the moments before and after a kiss, even more than the actual kiss.  They are always so full of anticipation, love and relief (the latter is especially true if it happens after a wedding ceremony).

I love how they are looking at each other in the photo on the left and I love the light in the one on the right.

They had a very Toronto wedding, so we had to make sure to incorporate very Toronto landmarks, like the CN Tower!

Their reception took place at Canoe restaurant, which featured excellent food and amazing views of the city as well as beautiful table settings.

I think you could guess where this wedding took place from this photo.

Everyone got into celebrating with the happy couple.

They learned how to dance for the first dance. I love how the guests are watching and smiling.

Congratulations Christine and Brian! May this beautiful celebration be the beginning of a long and happy life together!
