Justin & Roohi’s Wedding
Greetings, lovely readers!
Are you dreaming of a magical winter wedding? Well, buckle up, because I’ve got a tale that’ll warm your hearts faster than a cup of hot cocoa! Before I go any further, I’m Kotsy, an enthusiastic Toronto wedding photographer with a keen eye for capturing the essence of couple’s special day. Today I’m sharing Justin and Roohi’s wedding journey – a perfect blend of modern romance and timeless elegance at Old Mill here in “The 6ix”.
Modern Love Story
Justin and Roohi’s story started like many others in the digital age, with a simple swipe right on Bumble. It wasn’t long before they were onto their first date at High Park that lasted for hours. Fast forward to Albion Falls where Roohi was expecting lunch with Justin’s parents. Instead, she was surprised by a picnic and proposal by a waterfall – can you say romantic? I just knew their wedding would be nothing short of incredibly sweet after getting to spend time with them during their engagement session back at High Park.
Choosing the Old Mill: A Blend of History and Elegance
When it comes to picking a venue, Justin and Roohi wanted something that screamed history, charm, and elegance. And boy, did they hit the jackpot with Old Mill! This Toronto gem is not just a venue; it’s a century-old love letter to all things vintage and classy. With its Gothic-style architecture and stunning gardens, it’s a total paradise for couples and photographers like myself.
Imagine exchanging vows in a breathtaking chapel with stained glass windows casting a romantic glow over the ceremony. Or doing the married couple’s session in Old Mill’s stunning courtyard featuring stone buildings, a wooden bridge, lush gardens and serene water features. This is a scene that gets even more beautiful when you add on a fresh blanket of snow.
Finally, head inside to get lost in a labyrinth of long corridors and staircases, one of which provided the backdrop to Justin & Roohi’s favourite photo featuring the ol’ dip and kiss. The rooms themselves are filled with warm lighting by chandelier, large fireplaces, wall-to-wall hardwood floors and 13ft high ceilings. It doesn’t get more vintage than this!
The reception was a seamless mix of cozy winter vibes and heartwarming moments. After the energetic intros of the wedding party, Justin & Roohi strutted into the room to massive cheers before settling into the tender moment of their first dance to John Legend’s “All of Me”.
The room was then treated to heart felt speeches by the bride and groom’s family, best man, maid of honour and, of course, the bride and groom themselves. The countless touching stories not only had everyone’s full attention, but produce many heart-felt reactions.
And the food? Oh, the food! Their creamy pasta and tiramisu selections were a culinary cuddle, perfect for a winter’s eve. What about the cake? A divine dance of white chocolate and raspberry puree, with a side of chocolate truffle – because why choose one when you can have both?
Finally, what is a wedding without busting a move on the dancefloor? Justin and Roohi’s would prove no different with everybody going wild over old school tunes from the early 2000s. The amazing candid moments this created were seemingly endless!
