Decadent, breathtaking, exquisite are but a few words that can be used to describe Joanna and Marco’s stunningly elegant and whimsical wedding that was held at Spencer’s at the Waterfront. This majestic wedding venue located on Burlington’s serene waterfront (located just outside of Toronto) boasts astounding 30 foot glass windows with a sweeping bird’s-eye view of the surrounding waterfront. The highly stylized modern decor of the venue was the perfect setting ground to produce the luxurious and charming ambience that Joanna and Marco desired for their wedding. Spencer’s at the Waterfront additionally set the scene for us to change gears and shoot a soft, yet bold editorial boudoir photo shoot with Joanna and Marco.
The striking 30 foot glass windows in the dining room coupled with the dramatic wood panelled ceiling lent a very sleek and modern vibe to the venue. Joanna and Marco were able to seamlessly blend together these sleek and modern vibes with their romantic and vibrant accents and decor to create the perfect balance of elegance and whimsy. Rich and lush greenery, and vibrant bouquets of cream, soft blush pink, light delicate yellow and soft coral turned Joanna and Marco’s wedding into a dazzling garden and waterfront oasis. The end result gave us the opportunity to stage and shoot some truly sensational wedding editorial shots.
Joanna looked like an ethereal goddess in her dreamy strapless crisp white chiffon wedding gown and regal updo. The gown’s soft and delicate lace overlay which was gently strewn on its long flowing skirt beautifully complimented the flower pins and crown in Joanna’s hair. Marco himself cut an equally fine figure in his smart and classically tailored dark charcoal grey tuxedo. Joanna and Marco’s bridal party looked lovely as could be in their stunning soft and flowy cream blush gowns and sharp blue-grey tuxedos.
Joanna and Marco could not have been more fantastic to work with. They are a couple who are equally as warm and charming as they are hard working and innovative. They not only wanted dynamic shots taken during their wedding, but they also decided that they wanted their creativity to flow by doing a soft and romantic, yet sultry and bold boudoir photo shoot. We harmoniously balanced the romantic and bold ambience of the photo shoot by shooting Joanna and Marco in contrasting soft daylight and bolder black and white tones respectively. Joanna and Marco were absolute naturals during the shoot. They effortlessly were able to strike the ideal poses to convey the perfect balance of soft and sultry boudoir photos.
To close out their truly magnificent wedding, Joanna and Marco’s loved ones surrounded them in a circle of unity and love with glittering sparklers. It was a truly poignant and magical way to symbolize Joanna and Marco being each other’s bright and shining light.
Joanna and Marco, we wish you nothing but true joy and love as you set out together on your new journey. We warmly thank you for letting us work with you to create and capture truly beautiful eternal memories.
