It was a sunny, warm Fall day in September of 2020. Loren prepared for the wedding at her home in the Summerhill area of Toronto while Nick got ready at the Four Seasons Hotel in Yorkville. Loren spent that time with her friends and mother, Naomi while Nick was with his parents. On the front steps of the house, as Loren waited to see Nick for the first time that day, it was obvious how excited she was. After an emotional greeting, it was off for photos.
The bride and groom met while attending law school at the University of Toronto. It was fitting to spend part of the photo shoot where they first met. Philosophers Walk and the Faculty of Law made meaningful backdrops. The ceremony and reception location, the Globe and Mail Centre was the final destination. Loren and Nick were joined by the wedding party and the modern setting provided sweeping views for the rest of the pictures.
Due to COVID-19, the wedding had to be re-imagined multiple times. After a number of planning iterations and location changes, the Globe and Mail Centre was chosen. During the Badeken on the terrace, the afternoon sun shone, the Toronto skyline shimmered and it was obvious the choice of venue was the perfect one.
In this day of barriers and physical distancing, the transparency of the Chuppa and the thoughtful spacing of the seating, created a striking COVID-careful shared ceremony environment. After breaking the glass, Loren and Nick kiss and all the guests fire away with their confetti poppers.
Congratulations you two. What a day!
