We were so excited when Liz and Danielle from Gush Weddings & Events asked us to be involved in their latest Style Shoot. Together with some amazing vendors from the Niagara Region we were on hand to capture all the behind the scenes set up and design elements of this incredible Voyage of Love. Working alongside some truly talented wedding professionals to capture all the behind the scenes details of a fabulous style shoot and then seeing the results published in the latest issue of Elegant Wedding Magazine is truly a wonderful feeling!

Amy and Phil planned a perfect wedding day to kick off Summer! The weather was beautiful and we really did have the most relaxing and fun day with them, their family and friends. Amy and her girls looked spectacular thanks to the talented team at Makeup Worx. They chose picturesque Glen Abbey Golf & Country Club for their reception venue. Even in full sun we were able to capture some incredible images of them out on the green and in and around the incredible grounds. A special thanks to Leigh Raynor, catering sales manager, who went above and beyond to personally escort us around the course and ensured that everything was picture perfect. We loved the elegant décor created by Melissa at One Fine Day Event Planning & Design. Their gorgeous wedding cupcakes and cake were designed by Patricia’s Cake Creations. We also want to thank our friends Brian and Kelly Mercer from Blue Canister Studios for helping us capture Amy & Phil’s wedding story and create their heart-warming Same Day Edit that showed during their reception. We were surprised to hear that this was the inaugural Same Day Edit at Glen Abbey – what an honour! We wish a lifetime of love and happiness to Amy & Phil… thank you for choosing us to capture your memories! *a full post of photos coming soon, for now please enjoy their SDE.

Each year I have the pleasure of designing gorgeous wedding albums for our couples and it’s a process I really do love.  Selecting approximately 65 of the very best and most favourite images is probably the biggest challenge, but once those images are picked it’s truly magical to watch the album all come together.  We love when couples come into the studio and get a chance to flip through these hand crafted albums in person.  They feel beautiful in your hands and you can feel the workmanship and quality that has gone into each one.  These are not flimsy books that are slapped together.  Our albums are individually made by the album masters at Vision Art.  We love the look and feel of these albums and they really do last forever!  The thick pages are protected from finger prints and dust, the lay flat flushmount design means you don’t lose any of your photographs in the seam and they open nicely allowing you to see the entire image or images.  We can’t imagine not having a wedding album… it truly is the storybook of of your wedding day and is a keepsake to cherish for a lifetime.  Our couples are still telling us many years later how much they love their album and how they love looking through it with their children and their grandparents… over and over again.  You chose us to capture your wedding story, why not let us design an album for you to truly showcase those moments and memories!  Sure you can do it yourself and upload your images into an online template if you wish, but hands down I have never seen an album with the same quality, durability and breathtaking beauty as our Vision Art wedding albums.

Here is a sneak peek of Joanna and Dennis’ wedding album – we just had to make a studio sample for ourselves to share with all our 2015/16 couples that are coming in… we are in love with it’s elegance and beauty!

………………………….

This gorgeous canvas carry pouch comes in several colours and patterns and protects your album when taking it around it to show friends and family or work colleagues; it also looks stylish on display in your own home.

love-madly-wedding-album-visionart-cloth-carry-bag

the inside of the pouch is velvety smooth and soft so it won’t scratch your album cover

love-madly-wedding-album-toronto

you can either choose a beautiful photo wrap cover like this one or we have a variety of genuine soft leather choices in several popular colours

wedding-album-design-love-madly-toronto

you can see how thick the album is in this image – it’s sturdy and so well made  – it also feels nice in your hands with it’s silky smooth matte or gloss finish

love-madly-wedding-cinema-and-video-toronto

designing the full 24″ wide spreads is so fun for me – I love using a variety of page layouts to really showcase each gorgeous wedding image – this bouquet definitely needed to be shown as it’s own large single image; it was one of the most beautiful we’ve ever seen

wedding-photography-oakville-lovemadly

I love including a couple of pages of black & white images in each album… of course it’s a personal preference, but some images really do look better and more dramatic in b/w (in my opinion)

love-madly-wedding-films-toronto

this macro photo really shows an upclose look at the page thickness…. similar to a small child’s board book… these durable pages are built to last and can be turned many hundreds and thousands of times over generations and still look amazing – the clear coating protects your images from finger prints and dust as well

love-madly-custom-wedding-albums

choosing the day’s most romantic or memorable moments is sometimes tough… but there are always a few that just stand out from the rest to me, like this moment when Dennis leaned in and whispered in Jo’s ear… that smile on her face…  THAT moment needs to be remembered for always

wedding-album-design-by-love-madly-photo

the details are always an essential element of the day and need to be showcased on their own page… you have spent so much time (and money) choosing each and every one… when they all come together at the reception it’s simply gorgeous and you’ll want to remember them.  Jo and Dennis chose a couture cake from The Luvvly Cake Co and their design details and inspiration in whites and creams with lots of sparkle were the work of Jackie Penner Events – stunningly beautiful for sure

Here you can see again how thick and durable the album is by the spine

wedding-album-design-by-love-madly-toronto

and finally the back cover… just as beautiful as the front

custom-wedding-album-design-in-toronto-love-madly-weddings

Just like no two weddings are the same, nor are two albums.  Each one is individually designed and then hand crafted.  This album was designed in the 9×12 style but square options as large as 12×12 are also available.

We are so excited to announce our newest offering at Love Madly – our Highlight Films. These are beautiful 7-10 minute films that really encapsulate the joy and all of the very best and most memorable moments of your wedding story. We know that some couples still prefer our longer feature films and others prefer a one song 3-5 minute version… now we have something that falls right in the middle. Because every couple and story is unique we wanted to offer another option for our wedding film delivery. For those who may be on a more limited budget or simply prefer a little shorter film, this option is the PERFECT choice for you! Contact us for more information on all of our film and photography options for your special day!
We thought it was important to share a sample of a highlight film so you can see for yourself how beautiful they are. Joanna and Dennis’ gorgeous wedding took place at Hart House and Atlantis Pavilions, Toronto this past summer. We just adore these two and feel that this film is not at all about the length, but rather about all of the moments, details and ‘highlights’ of their wedding story that are beautifully captured and re-told. Enjoy!

What a beautiful wedding story we had the honour of capturing yesterday.  Karen and Lorne were married in an absolutely gorgeous ceremony in the Governor’s Room at the Ancaster Mill.  The rains held off, family and friends gathered with full hearts for a celebration joining two families.  I especially love ceremonies that unite different cultures and religions and knowing how important having a Jewish ceremony was to Karen it was all that more special seeing the two of them under the Chuppah surrounded by their parents, closest friends, candles and gorgeous florals.  The room looked incredible.  Speaking of incredible, Karen’s champagne coloured lace dress was breathtaking.  My favourite part of their day was when they saw each other for the first time.  I love the look on Lorne’s face as Karen looked over at him from the upstairs railing and I especially loved the few minutes they had alone together immediately after when Karen whispers “here we go …  now that I’ve seen him I’m ready, now I’m okay”.  Their Same Day Edit was a complete surprise.  Karen’s mom and dad had requested this as a surprise gift to their daughter and new son-in-law.  It was amazing to watch their faces as they watched their wedding story on the big screen surrounded by all of their wedding party, family and friends.  I couldn’t believe how hard it was to keep this secret from them the past few months, but I’m so glad we did.  What a truly beautiful and memorable gift!  The SDE ended with a standing ovation and lots of hugs… we believe it truly captures the essence of their love story.

It’s been an amazing year-long journey getting to know and become friends with Sasha and Eric.  Yesterday, it was such an honour  for us to capture the wedding story of this fabulously warm, completely in-love-with-each-other couple.  From her couture Vera Wang gown and Louboutin Shoes to walking down the isle to the love of her life it was evident that Sasha’s biggest wedding day dreams came true.  Eric looked so handsome and was teary during his personal vows to his new bride.  The entire day was filled with love and laughter.  We saw many of their guests wiping away tears after their Same Day Edit showed last night… it truly encapsulates their love story and will always take them back to their magical day.   We had the pleasure of working alongside some very talented individuals who all had an important role in making their day as memorable as it was!

Posted in Same Day Edit

Yesterday was the most amazingly beautiful day!  With an outdoor ceremony planned at Hart House, inside a gorgeous courtyard at the University of Toronto, we had all prayed for a perfect weather day!  I joked with Jo yesterday that her bridesmaids all looked as though they had gone through a rigorous screening process similar to the Bachelorette … how else could one find 9 bridesmaids and 2 maids of honour that are ALL stunning ?  The entire wedding party was awesome and we had a really great time!  Monika and her entire dream team from MakeUp Worx were there bright and early, we absolutely loved both of Jo’s bridal looks – one for daytime and another for evening.  Jackie from Jackie Penner Events was such a pleasure to work with.  She kept everyone on schedule and truly created a dream wedding day for Jo and Dennis.  I have only quickly gone through the images from yesterday and found my jaw drop a couple of times at the special moments we captured.  A full post of photos will come later but for now we wanted to share their Same Day Edit from last night.

We knew from our very first meeting that Kira and Mike’s wedding day would be nothing but an absolutely beautiful, memorable and fun time for them and all of their guests.  They planned their wedding on the July 1st long weekend to give everyone a chance to get away to Niagara on the Lake and spend not just a few hours, but a few days, celebrating with them!  I love that they thought of their guests before anything else.  There were so many highlights in the day that I can’t pinpoint an actual favourite… their first look was beautiful, the hand sewn chuppah that Mike’s sister made was gorgeous, their decor and florals were simply fabulous, thanks to Gush Events and Mimosa Flower Studio. The rustic barn at Honsberger Estate with it’s stone walls and exposed beams was the perfect setting for this intimate wedding.   I loved their outdoor vintage-inspired lounge area set up by The Warehouse Niagara that included various seating areas for their guests to enjoy right under the stars.  Yummy cupcakes by the Luvvly Cake Co. were enjoyed as an after dinner treat.  The evening was filled with dancing, an over-the-top fireworks display and their surprise Same Day Edit.  It was definitely a wedding that everyone is still talking about weeks later.  I had a hard time narrowing down my favourite images for the blog.  Again, there were so many amazing details and moments that we captured … we feel so honoured to be the keeper of their memories.

On July 6th Jennifer and Matt were married in Toronto.  Jenn and her girls got ready at the Trump Tower downtown.  We love the elegance of the Trump and it made the perfect location for their first look.  The day was beautiful and it was great to finally work alongside Cynthia Martyn and the team from Fuscia Designs who made sure everything looked fabulous and every detail was perfect at the ceremony and reception location, Liberty Grand. I absolutely loved her vintage inspired wedding cake from The Wedding Cake Shoppe made with hundreds of real roses. We wish Jennifer and Matt lots of love and happiness as they embark on many new adventures.
