Scott & Edlene's laid-back Ossington wedding
Scott and Edlene were referred to me by a friend of mine, who had worked previously with Scott. They were from Vancouver, and were on the hunt for a photographer who could shoot their wedding at OMAW, on Ossington Ave in Toronto. (Highly recommend!)
I hadn't met the couple prior to shooting their wedding, which was a new experience for me - normally I meet couples for engagement shoots before their wedding. We'd chatted on the phone though, and they had let me know they were looking for a laid back vibe for their day, with lots of time spent just having fun with their closest friends and family.
They definitely accomplished that with OMAW! This was a perfect venue for them, with two spaces for guests to use. They had a family-only ceremony which was beautiful and emotional, and then a family only dinner following. After that, friends arrived by the busload (literally! They hired a bus to get all their pals to the party!) and there was dancing, drinks, delicious passed food and hilarious speeches.
I loved this day - it was so different and fun! This wedding didn't have all the traditional wedding features, and that made it a fun and unique event for guests to attend.
