Artscape Gibraltar Point Wedding / Alison + Iain

Not only did Alison + Iain steal my heart on their wedding day with how adorable they are together, but Artscape Gibraltar Point stole my heart as THE MOST AMAZING WEDDING VENUE EVER!

Artscape-Gibraltar-Point-Wedding-Photography020Seriously. It’s a quaint artistic building, right by the water with the prettiest beach I’ve ever seen on the Toronto Island (it may be where all the nudes go, although we didn’t stumble upon any). They had an outdoor ceremony surrounded by trees, followed by lawn games, and an outdoor reception under twinkly lights + stars. This was the PERFECT venue for them as Alison + Iain are a a very down-to-earth couple that thrive on being outdoors.

I love putting in the effort to get to know my couples before I photograph them. It breaks the ice + I also grow to better understand them as individuals and as a couple, which helps me document their love story more accurately. Below you can read the short version of their love story from Alison’s point of view 🙂

“When we first kissed (on our anniversary date), I think I knew that this was it. I remember the expression on his face, the way it felt, and realized how much we’d both been wanting this after years of friendship. I felt like I belonged and there was no way I was going to let it go. We feel quickly in love, and after 6 months we went backpacking around India for two months. He left the country before I did and the goodbye was heart breaking. After spending 2 months not leaving each others’ side, I couldn’t bear to be apart and booked an earlier flight home. I think the trip confirmed what I knew about our relationship.”
