Canada's National Ballet School Wedding

bride excited during first look


Boy oh boy. The last wedding of 2017 was the sweetest way to wrap up a very busy season. Caitlyn and Jonathan’s Canada’s National Ballet School wedding was nothing short of spectacular, and what a unique venue to get married in! I got to know these two through my friends Brittany and Steven, who also got married in 2017. Caitlyn and Brittany are sisters and as you can probably tell from the photos, there is a special bond between those two. Revisiting the same families for their celebrations and milestone is by far one of my most favorite parts about being a wedding photographer. I get to see some familiar faces and connect with the same people even more. It makes me feel like family!Since I love intimate and personal proposals, I thought it’d be nice to share Caitlyn’s story on how Jonathan asked her to marry him:

“Jonathan owns two clothing stores in Toronto. I was invited by a mutual friend of ours to attend the opening party of his second store, Working Title. We were introduced that night. Following our introduction, Jonathan asked me out on a date the following week and the rest was history. Jonathan proposed where we met at Working Title. It started out like any other Monday. We had an appointment after work to inquire about leasing a car (he didn’t propose at the dealership, thankfully lol!). On our way home from the dealership, he asked if we could stop at Working Title (which is where we met over 3 years ago) to pick up some stuff for lost&found (his other store). This is pretty standard, so it wasn’t a tip off at all. I said I would wait in the car (also standard). I was on the phone with my sister discussing car insurance, when I got a call from Jonathan asking if I could come “help him” with the boxes. I of course said no problem and made my way from the car to the store. I should also note that it was after hours so the store was closed. I walked in and the lights were dim, and Jonathan had the store all set-up with flowers and music and as I walked in the store, he got down on one knee. It was so intimate and personal to us. It was perfect!”
