My first wedding of 2019! Hannah & Greg

Updated: Apr 8, 2019


This charming couple tied the knot on March 2nd, 2019 at Pizzeria Defina in Toronto.

The day began with Hannah, her mother and sister, at a cute Air BNB. It was one of those peaceful winter mornings where huge snowflakes were lazily falling from the sky. A gorgeous day for a winter wedding.

Hannah bought her sister and mom matching rain boots to combat the weather.

We got ready in the most beautifully lit rom with moody shadows. (A photographers dream).

Once Hannah was ready we headed to her and Greg's condo in Roncesvalles. Hannah and Greg love this neighbourhood. It's actually where we did their engagement shoot as well. Their condo has a rooftop that overlooks the city, so we could catch a gorgeous view of the snow falling. A Roncesvalles winter dream.

Before the first look even began there were a few tears on Hannah's part. Its always so endearing when the emotions start flooding. I knew she had this under control, so I gave her the keys and told her to take her time and come out when she was ready. The results were perfect.

Then we arrived at the Venue - Defina Woodfired. PIZZA! Hannah characterized her wedding as a pizza party for grown ups. My dream come true.

She didn't want a big wedding at all. This was already bigger than she had originally conceived. It was a very relaxed and chill wedding. No aisle. Just a restaurant full of loved ones ready to witness the marriage of two beautiful people. Christine @woventhreads - based out of Guelph - was an amazing officient. She ran a very personalized ceremony and put a huge emphasis on telling their story. Short and sweet. After the couple said "I do", there was a champagne toast for the entire room and the celebrations began.

I love when couples follow through with exactly what they want. Often there are so many influences on how your big day goes, but Hannah & Greg did it their way!

I cant say enough great things about the venue. Defina Woodfired - food was amazing. Crispy brussel sprouts - WOAH.

Hannah and Greg were lucky to have so many family members with them on their day - including the cutest little nieces and nephews who were more than thrilled take part in the photo taking.

The couple had their first dance, joined by their loved ones and at the end of the night I stole them away for two minutes to grab a couple pictures in the snowy street - I hope they partied the night away!
