Black & White Affair

Love Ola and Amir’s black and white wedding!

Toronto wedding photographer Selina Whittaker describes this lovely day…

…”I was thrilled when I got the email that Ola and Amir had finally decided to tie the knot. I had worked with the Toronto real estate dream team before so I knew their wedding would showcase their impeccable style, good vibes, and love for the city. And would include their fur baby Roxy, of course.

They didn’t disappoint! Their venue choices were awesome. I loved the rooftop reveal at the Thompson Hotel, overlooking the cityscape and CN tower, and the ceremony and reception at modern chic Andrew Richard Design. The colour scheme of gold & black & white was the perfect combo of modern and vintage. So fun to shoot.

One of my favourite moments was slipping out after the whirlwind of the ceremony and family photos to get a few shots of just Ola and Amir on the street with the coolest black and white over-sized balloons. They were so relaxed and having a ball and it was very much reflected in those photos.

And what a party! A lot of amazing dancing. A surprise serenade by a very talented guest and another surprise video that Amir put together for Ola. A wonderful opportunity for me to get some amazing reactions from the bride and groom and all their guests. Did I mention the photo booth with a backdrop of about 20 balloons? Or the s’more station? What more could you ask for?

It was a perfect day.”
