Matthew and Livia live & work in downtown Toronto. You may remember their Toronto Distillery engagement session that I recently posted here. Livia is originally from Hungary & they met while traveling in Europe. They are a very down to earth couple and they knew they wanted a relaxed and fun wedding that suited their style. Taboo Resort is an amazing venue for weddings, especially when you have family and friends coming in from across the globe. You can stay for the weekend and enjoy the scenic views of Lake Muskoka while spending time with the bride and groom, families and friends. Their wedding ceremony was held on the Fireside Lounge patio and reception in the Boathouse with stunning views of the lake.
We also set up a photo booth with some fabulous props for Matthew & Livia at the reception. It was tons of fun! I will share some of those fun images in another post. If you are looking for a photobooth at your wedding, let us know. We can definitely set one up for you.
I love photographing the bride getting ready. I usually recommend to start your wedding photography coverage with the getting ready photos. The last hour or so of getting ready is sufficient to capture this part of your day. My second photographer, Amber, photographed the guys getting ready and then we met in the lobby bar with Matthew & the groomsmen to arrange the first look and begin bridal party photos.
The sun was streaming onto the Fireside patio during the reception.
Immediately following the reception we photographed the family portraits followed by a few more portraits of just the bride and groom which was nice for them to have some alone time once more before heading back for the reception.
I love these next few images we captured along the boardwalk overlooking the lake. The combination of the yellow reeds and the blue of the water make such a beautiful backdrop for these images.
How sweet is this cake table? The mossy cupcakes and birch bark cake stands really add to the rustic Muskoka vibe.
Documenting the wedding reception is a great time to capture candid imagery of the bride & groom, families and guests.
