Daymmm. Candice + James definitely know how to throw a party. Their sexy wedding at The Darling Mansion in Toronto was one of the most unique weddings I photographed since the reception ended up being a literal house party. I mean, at the start of the dance party that night, James + Candice filled a big red tub with hot water, sprinkled some red rose petals in there, and had it ready for whoever wanted to enjoy it throughout the night!
Candice + James are an inspiration to me with how they live their lives. They simply are who they are + they own it. They even have their own show on YouTube called The Edgy Veg, and are the authors of a best selling vegan cookbook (that’s also carnivore approved!). Since they got engaged at Burning Man, I knew there would never be a dull moment photographing their day, and that was very true!
On another note, I LOVED how much the Darling Mansion embraces sexuality. Walking in there, you automatically feel sexier + that you can be yourself + not feel judged. There is such a stigma around being open + sexual + I love that our world is becoming more + more open to seeing the beauty of it. It’s beautiful to see a wedding celebration at a place like that. We’ve come a long way world 🙂
