jonathan + dennis
thompson hotel wedding

Jonathan and Dennis, where to begin?  We had such an amazing time with you and your family and friends on your wedding day and I am so excited to share these photos with you.

I first met Dennis and Jonathan at Dennis’ brother’s wedding last summer.  I knew after meeting them and watching them in action on the dance floor that night that their own day was going to be full of incredible style and energy.  I was SO right!  When we first walked into their penthouse suite at the Thompson Hotel, we were warmly welcomed by Jonathan and Dennis who were completely chill (something we rarely witness with our couples pre-ceremony).  As we photographed their details, Jonathan and Dennis shared stories of their meeting and their engagement – their love and adoration for one another so plainly visible.  The easiest way to describe these two is that they share a chemistry and zest for life that is so infectious that you can’t help but want to be around them. To meet them is to fall in love with them.  And I fell.  Head over heels.

After heading out for some photographs with their wedding party around the hotel and in the streets of Toronto, we ventured back to the Thompson Hotel Rooftop for their ceremony with the amazing cityscape as their backdrop.  Their ceremony was short and sweet and beautiful, with lots of laughter and a few tears. Their reception then followed in the Wellington Ballroom of the hotel where craziness broke out in the photo booth.  (To see images from their photo booth, click here.)  After some heartfelt, tearful speeches, they danced and partied all night to the live music of “Soular” which was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! The energy in that room was something else.

Congratulations J&D.  I SO enjoyed witnessing and documenting your special day.
