Mary + Blake – Spadina House Wedding Photos
Mary + Blake’s Spadina House wedding photos were a highlight of my summer, Spadina House is a pretty amazing location for pictures.
Mary + Blake’s ceremony and wedding pictures were at Spadina House and the reception at the Boiler House Loft in the Distillery District. They are really lovely down to earth people who actually met in the Yukon, where they still live now. Their wedding was so light hearted – you can see how much they love each other and how much fun they have together. When we ran into a few hiccups – one being a power loss at their venue because of the Tragically Hip’s final concert – and they were so calm and collected until the problems were resolved. That says a lot about how they get through stress together and that nothing was going to stop them from enjoying their wedding.
When the power went out at the restaurant. we walked around the Distillery to take a few photos and take our mind off the reception troubles. When we got back we could tell from the jubilant greetings from guests that the power situation had been resolved.
Quite a lot of people went to the Distillery District for the Hip’s final concert. I stood by and listened a little bit after I finished working. Very sad. Weddings make me reflect on the passing of time, usually when I leave and the party is going strong. Weddings are a lot like funerals in some ways, there is a lot of tension leading up to formalities – words that are spoken and roles everyone has to play, and then the release as everyone gets together and enjoys being together in the face of life changing and passing.
