Kristina & Yousif’s beautiful wedding took place at The Old Mill Inn & Spa in Toronto.
From the minute I arrived at The Old Mill, it became clear to me that it’s quite literally a wedding factory. Before I got to the front door, I had already passed two other brides. But despite the fact that 5 or 6 weddings were happening at the venue that day, it never felt crowded or impersonal. Pretty incredible.
Kristina and her bridesmaids were busy getting ready in a room at the inn, as I wandered around the maze-like hallways of the historic Old Mill.
Just a few hours later, we headed to the chapel for a very short and sweet ceremony.
The Old Mill wedding chapel is very charming, but incredibly dark. This was one of the most challenging ceremonies I’ve photographed, since the available light was so limited. Though difficult, it created very dramatic images.
After the ceremony, I took the wedding party around the Old Mill’s gorgeous grounds for some fun photos.
The wedding party was a lot of fun to work with. Everybody was so friendly and weloming through the whole photo shoot.
Kristina & Yousif were very playful while I shot them. They were always joking around and laughing, which made them so easy to work with.
I had the newlyweds pose to mimic their cake topper.
After photos, the wedding party was announced at the reception, in the Humber Room.
Kristina & Yousif had their base-less champagne glasses engraved. It was a very cool detail.
The couple requested that we take a group shot with all of their guests. Luckily, they only had about 60 guests, so everybody fit on the staircase outside of the banquet hall.
After that, the party really began.
I had an amazing time shooting Kristina & Yousif’s wedding and I wish all the best for the happy couple.
