Universal Event Space Wedding :: Kathleen+Anthony

Hey Gang!

Kathleen & Anthony just returned from their romantic European honeymoon and we are SO excited to share the photos of their amazing wedding day in Toronto!  Where do we even begin?!  Their ceremony took place at a beautiful church downtown that held special meaning for Kathleen.  It is the church that has been part of her family’s history and the one she attended throughout her childhood.  We can’t imagine how many times she sat in the pews as a little girl and imagined herself in a white gown, walking down the aisle with her parents.  And then, fast forward years later and it happened!

From there, we went to the University of Toronto with the newly married couple and their best man and maid of honour.  If you’ve ever had the chance to walk the grounds of the University, you’d know what we mean when we say that it is one of the most perfect locations for wedding photos – the architecture, the greenery, the history!!  We were like kids in a candy store *lol*

And if that weren’t enough, we had the pleasure of working with the incredible staff at Universal Event Space.  They seriously know how to put on an event!!  The food, atmosphere and overall customer service is out of this world.  We always love working with them.

A huge thank you to Kathleen & Anthony for having us be such a special part of their wedding day.  We have had so much fun getting to know you guys.  Your love for each other and for food had us from the start *lol*  We love you guys and hope your honeymoon provided lots of entries into your list of favourite restaurants!!

Here’s a little glimpse into what Kathleen & Anthony had to say about their big day…

He Said:

My favourite part of the day was what you both originally made us realize when we first met. You told us this would be the only day in our lives where all of our family and friends would be under one roof. For me, celebrating with our family and friends was my favourite part… oh and of course, marrying Katie!

I’ll never forget seeing her for the first time that day, as she walked down the aisle in the church. It’s one of those things that only happen once in a lifetime.

I least expected to (drink as much as I did… kidding!). Every married person told us the same thing about their wedding day: the day flies by. So, I knew the day would go by quick, but I honestly didn’t expect it to be as much of a blur as it was (thankfully, we get to relieve the day through your photos!) One minute you are getting dressed and ready for the church, and the next moment you are laying down next to your wife after the reception and saying ‘that’s the quickest 18 hours that I have ever experienced, what just happened!?’

She Said:

My favourite part of the day was….

 

Marrying my best friend (obviously!) I can say that I have never been so excited and happy in my life.

 

I was also so overwhelmed seeing all of our family and friends that joined Anthony and I. This is one of the few (or only) moments in our lives where we will have all of our loved ones in the same room, at the same time, there to celebrate… us.

 

I’ll never forget….

 

The first time I saw Anthony waiting at the altar. The moment I saw him standing there, I held my breath… literally almost the entire walk down the aisle.

 

I least expected….

How incredibly fast the day would go by.  Throughout the last year of planning, we were warned that the day would be a blur, but that is an understatement.  There are moments that I remember crystal clear – the limo ride to the church with my parents and sister, the first time I saw Anthony, bits and pieces of the ceremony, the speeches, and a few others…  but most of it was over in the blink of an eye. I am glad we stopped and took a moment during the reception to just soak it all in.
