We started 2011 with a big bang. 2 weddings on the first weekend of the New Year! Since it’s impossible to be in two places at one time Marek and I split up. Marek captured Viola and Oreste’s Wedding with fellow photographer Jimmy and I photographed Terra and Ian’s Wedding with Sonya (more on that wedding in the next post). Here’s a video we shot from their engagement.
The ceremony took place in the beautiful Music Room at the UofT in downtown Toronto. The stunning architecture really allowed the team to capture some creative and memorable images. The outside courtyard offered beautiful light and at the same time, lots of cold so the photo session was wrapped up quickly.
The reception took place at the family owned Italian restaurant, Mastro’s Ristorante Italiano. Many guests flew in from Italy so I’m sure everyone felt right at home there. The wedding cake was certaily unique and definitely fit the winter wedding theme.
The kitchen was kept quite busy, I guess a 7 course dinner will make that happen.
Everyone enjoyed the fresh Lobster.
No wedding can go without wine, and wine there was, but what wine is the real question. Oreste’s father, Elio did something truly spectacular and special. He purchased 50 cases of wine when Oreste was born in 1979, with the intention of drinking it at the wedding. The guests were spoiled with the 32 year old wine rumoured to sell at over $4,500 a bottle :-).
A big congratulations to both Viola and Oreste. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day.
