The wedding of Rashida & Ayodele took place at the Omni King Edward Hotel in Toronto. A King Edward Hotel wedding promises to be a beautiful thing, it just can’t help itself. The architecture alone of the building makes it one of the most stunning in the city. As photographers, we are not there to simply capture architecture. We are there to find the beauty in the tiniest moments. A first look with a teary eyed groom, or when the final zip of the dress is done up, or the expressions in a crowd that erupts with cheers as the family is announced into the reception. For Rashida & Ayodele, emotions were running deep at their wedding. This was one of those couples that everyone is rooting for. You could feel the love of their friends and family throughout the entire day. Positive vibes followed them everywhere, and they graciously gave every guest their full attention.
If there was ever an award I could give to a couple for being so diligent, patient and loving it would be to these two fantastic human beings. Not only did they agree in the middle of their reception to pose for 100 group portraits with guests; but they gave each grouping their genuine attention. The line of guests who wanted a photo with the amazing couple continued to grow. It took Ryan 2 hours to photograph the entire line up. Rashida & Ayodele just said, “Keep them coming. if they are happy we are happy,”
Their wedding was gorgeous, but I think what we will remember the most are the people. Rashida & Ayo do a good job of making you feel like they have known you for a long time. We just wanted to say thank you and congratulations to Rashida & Ayodele, and their amazing families; for being so warm, welcoming and overall amazing to work with. We cannot wait to share you wedding album with you very soon!
Thank you also to our 3rd photographer Spencer Wynn, who helped us cover the receptions, so we could take care of the portraits. Your work is fantastic! We are so glad to have met you.
