Justin + Jen :: Steam Whistle Brewery :: Toronto Distillery District Wedding

I had only met Justin and Jen once before their wedding day–and it’s always a little unnerving to show up cold at a wedding without much of a relationship with the clients.  But with Justin and ‘Jenner’ and the entire wedding party I was instantly welcomed into the celebrations!

I only wished I’d had the opportunity to hang out with them before the wedding :)

GETTING READY!

It was a party!   The girls got ready all in one room at the Residence Inn.

I love how Jen is both unafraid to be a little goofy and just kinda gorgeous!   My favourite kind of lady.

PORTRAITS:

Liberty Village, Toronto

The girls were troopers!  It was about -17 C that day and those girls were so cooperative dropping their shoulders and not ‘huddling’…too much.

COCKTAILS + DINNER + DANCE

Jen and Justin started their reception off a little differently and I REALLY liked it!    After guests did a shot before entering the receiving line, they introduced the wedding party and went right into one big dance and invited up all the guests!

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Van–it was truly a pleasure working with you, your families and friends–however brief.

*Please leave a comment below because I’m really insecure and easily crushed when people don’t show me some love!   If you don’t want to leave a message I also accept gift cards for massages.*

And–if you like what you see, ‘like’ me on Facebook too!
