Toronto Wedding Photographer | Miller Lash House Wedding Photos


Secret Garden Themed Wedding


Kelly & Steven

Today I’m sharing with you photos from Kelly and Steven’s Miller Lash House wedding (with a secret garden theme!) Their Miller Lash House wedding took place on a gorgeous sunny Toronto day. (Well, Scarborough, technically.). The ceremony was outdoors in a unique circular 360* setting, while the reception was held in what felt like a tented garden. I just love all the decor that Kelly chose! But we will get to that in a moment!

How They Met

Kelly and Steven met at the Filly and Firkin Bar. (I believe that bar is closed now.) Kelly was at the bar with her friend Nancy, and Steve was at the bar with his friend Neil. Kelly had been hanging out with a guy all night, and after chatting with Steve at the bar, Steve could tell that Kelly didn’t really like the guy – so he pretended to be Kelly’s boyfriend! The guy knew Steve was lying, and clearly didn’t like that. Apparently, this guy had bothered other guys that Steve knew at the bar that night, and the poor guy ended up getting punched. When that happened, Kelly and Steven ran from the bar. The next day, Steve asked Kelly to go out for coffee, and they found out that they were both normal human beings…. haha! After the coffee, they drove around for a couple hours just talking. Steven got hungry and ended up eating McDonald’s.

They dated for just over 6 years before Steven completely surprised Kelly by proposing!

The Proposal

In the summer of 2016, Kelly and Steven were at a City and Colour Concert at the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto. They were at the very back of the venue, and when “their song” was being performed, Steven completely shocked Kelly with a proposal!

The Wedding

The Miller Lash House is located at the Scarborough campus of the University of Toronto. It’s a tucked-away little gem of a venue, and it really suited the Secret Garden Theme perfectly!

The Ceremony

The Miller Lash House wedding ceremony was held outdoors, in a unique setting where the guests sat on ALL sides of the bride and groom during the ceremony! The circular setting was certainly interesting from a photography point of view! Kelly’s parents walked her up the long aisle (as seen in the first photo above), and Steven saw his bride for the first time as she approached the altar, which was beautifully decorated with gorgeous floral arrangements and greenery!

The Wedding Party

I don’t even know where to start with this wedding party. They were quite possibly the wildest, funniest, most entertaining wedding party I have ever encountered. I’m fairly certain that because of them, Kelly and Steven have the largest “outtakes folder” that I have ever created – haha! They clean-up pretty nice though, and I’m not just saying that because I’ve photographed 3 of the members of the wedding party previously 😉

The Newlyweds!

We actually didn’t have as much time as I usually like to do the bride and groom photos, but we made good use of the time we did have! Kelly and Steven are naturals in front of the camera!

The Reception

Below you can see some of the Secret Garden Themed decor that I mentioned earlier. I just love it – so elegant! The doorknob table-numbers are brilliant!

The reception area was tented, but with open sides so you literally felt like you were inside a hidden garden!

The newlyweds danced to “their song”, which of course was the same song that was playing at the concert when Steven proposed – “We Found Each Other in the Dark” by City and Colour.

Kettleby Wedding Photographer | The Manor Wedding Photos


Stephanie & Marc

How They Met

Stephanie and Marc first met online, and then had their first date at Lucky Strike bowling alley at the Vaughan Mills mall (which has since closed down.) When they first saw each other in-person, Stephanie thought “Wow he’s tall, and cute!”, while Marc was thinking to himself “She’s cute!”. They dated for almost 4 years before Marc popped the question!

The Proposal

Marc proposed to Stephanie while they were on vacation in St. Maarten, on Happy Bay Beach.

The Wedding

Stephanie and Marc held their wedding ceremony and reception at The Manor, in Kettleby. They lucked into a gorgeous day, which was perfect for their outdoor ceremony!

Getting Ready

Stephanie and Marc both got ready in separate rooms on the top floor of The Manor, along with their wedding party.

The Ceremony

Stephanie and Marc’s ceremony was held outdoors by the water. Their guests sat in the shade under the big white tent that’s usually set up on the back patio at The Manor. Stephanie and Marc didn’t do a First Look, so the first time Marc saw his bride was when she was walking down the aisle with her father.

The Wedding Party & The Newlyweds!

Stephanie and Marc had a fantastic wedding party who were a lot of fun! After some wedding party photos, I took photos of Kettleby’s newest married couple all around the back of The Manor’s property.

Miller Lash House Wedding Photographer | Scarborough Wedding Photographer


Kelly & Steven’s Sneak Peeks

Kelly and Steven went with a Secret Garden theme for their Miller Lash House wedding in Scarborough – and it was BEAUTIFUL! The Miller Lash House is exactly the perfect venue for a Secret Garden themed wedding I would say! I can’t wait to share photos of all the beautiful decor!

Kelly wore a beautiful Stella York wedding gown, that fit her absolutely perfectly! And Steven looked quite dapper in his black-on-black suit!

Three of the youngest wedding party members are missing in the photo below – but aren’t the ring bearer (one of 3), and flower girl (one of 2) an adorable brother-sister team? This was an incredible wedding party to work with. The guys were “animals”, as Steven put it, and the girls are one of the most loyal group of friends I have ever seen! This wedding party is extra special as well, because I’ve previously photographed 3 of them!

Stephanie and Marc were married on a perfect blue-sky day at The Manor in Kettleby.

Their wedding party consisted of three bridesmaids and three groomsmen – they were such a fun group!

At a lot of weddings, I will tell my couples to walk somewhere and walk back, and just chat with each other. In case anyone’s interested, this is what your wife will look like when you tell her that you didn’t do the dishes. 😉

“I didn’t do the dishes.”

Congrats Stephanie and Marc!! I loved being a part of your awesome wedding day!

Toronto Wedding Photographer | Darchei Noam Synagogue


Alana & Michael

Alana and Michael’s story is something movies are made of – they met, it was love at first sight, and within 8 months they were married!

How They Met

Alana and Michael met online through a dating app. They went on their first date (a romantic walk through the woods), and it was love at first sight! Alana knew it was going to work out, and so did Michael. He knew right away that Alana was going to be his next girlfriend. What he didn’t know at the time (of course), was that he would end up marrying her within 8 months of meeting!

The Proposal

After just 6 months of dating, they were both certain – they wanted to be together forever. They were just hanging out, having casual conversation, and they started talking about getting married. They both agreed it had to happen – so why wait!

The Wedding

Alana and Michael both got ready at home, so when I got there we did a quick First Look, then went right into bride & groom photos.

Since it was the end of October, we used the beautiful fall colours in the backyard as a backdrop. It worked out beautifully (except it was pretty cold and poor Alana was freezing – but you can’t tell that from the photos!)!

For the ceremony, we travelled a short distance to the Darchei Noam Synagogue. I had never been there before, but it is a wonderful venue with lots of space. Rabbi Tina Grimberg was wonderful!

I really love the “breaking the glass” tradition at Jewish weddings. It’s such a great way to end the ceremony, with a big POP!
