Mila and Anthony’s wedding at Eglinton Grand was stunning. I met this bride and groom through his brother as I photographed his Royal Ashburn wedding. Wedding at Eglinton Grand is a first at this gorgeous venue and was a fabulous reception with everything from it’s old theatre charm, to the first dance set up, the service, food and decor.
Mila was a stunning bride from head to toe. Her wedding gown was exquisite and her veil was her mother’s. The lace was such a beautiful detail and looked ravishing! Colour…oh my…just in love with the colours Mila chose. They lit up the beginning of Spring with the ruby reds, corals, and pinks. Even Mila’s lipstick was the perfect colour to match her bouquet and give a pop to the start of Spring!
Gracious, gorgeous and brilliant are just a few words to describe this architect designer bride. Her smile beamed all day! She was calm, relaxed and enjoyed every minute. The moments with her mom, dad, sister and bridesmaids at home were touching as her mom helped with her veil, dad seeing her for the first time (snapping photos all the time behind me, was so cute), sister and bridesmaid always ready to lend a hand and to be there talking and laughing.
Off to the church we headed into the beaches and what a grand catholic church it was where Mila grew up going to. I loved seeing the groom’s mother come to greet and remember her fondly from her son’s wedding I photographed. Mila’s grandmother carried a ring pillow she had at her own wedding. Traditional and beautiful wedding ceremony it was! Afterwards lots of congratulations, entire group photo, and mingling with the guests…so nice to have this time for these moments.
Of course, what follows is the gathering of family photos, which we did right across the road. Then got in the vehicles and headed to the south end of the park, that ended at Queen Street. A quaint pretty little narrow park that winds up a hill with stunning homes lining the banks. Being the start of Spring leaf buds are just starting to come out and the magnolia and forget me nots were starting to flower!
Check out the photos of the LOVE balloons. Great prop and a great way to get the groomsmen all involved in a photo that will make my bride and groom laugh for years. As one is trying to hold it just right, another one is holding the “O’ through his head and another one holding the ballon, and watching it float like a 3 yr.old…priceless!!! This all while the bride and bridesmaids are laughing their heads off. What a wonderful group of family and friends!
Mila and Anthony separate are very kind, sweet, detailed and easy going and together they have fun, in love and memorable!
Eglinton Grand has a theatre entrance as it was one, and the reception room is the perfect place to have that First Dance. As the music starts, the guests up above, look out in awe and you hear and feel the romance, as the curtains are drawn and down on the dancefloor with a spotlight on them is the bride and groom having their First Dance.
Dashing out for some photos as the night light falls and the lights of the Eglinton Grand are showing up against the city sky, this bride and groom have a moment or two, then it’s back in for the celebration of love and marriage on this remarkable newly married couple’s night.
Thank you for being such a stunning and remarkable couple with your gorgeous wedding and having me be there to document it!
Love, Heather xo
