Thompson Hotel Wedding – Toronto Rooftop wedding
Ashley and Neil’s day took place at the Toronto Thompson Hotel where we documented their day from the start, through a beautiful Thompson Hotel wedding ceremony taking place on the rooftop, and right through to the intimate reception. After taking some wedding photos at The Music Gardens in Harbourfront their heartfelt and beautiful ceremony took place on the rooftop against the backdrop of Toronto’s skyline. The reception took place a the lobby lounge which was beautifully decorated in yellow tones with hints of grey throughout keeping in with a bright and fun theme. There were so many personal touches included in the wedding including the beautiful centerpieces grown by the bride which were 3″ long cat grass ‘runners’ with flowers scattered within. It was a beautiful day filled with lots of laughter, emotions and guests from what seemed like all over the world.
Neil and Ashley met at a party in January 2009, though they didn’t truly hit it off until the two of them unknowingly joined the same recreational soccer league a few weeks later. While they should have been delighted that fate brought them back together, Ashley’s poor vision made their second meeting a comedy of errors rather than a love story. When Neil walked into the room Ashley stared at him, squinting her eyes to try and make out exactly who this newest member of her team was. Neil took this facial expression to mean that Ashley didn’t remember him at all. Disheartened to be forgotten about after getting along so well a few weeks later, Neil introduced himself to Ashley as if they’d never met before. By this point Neil was close to enough that Ashley recognized him, only to be let down when he introduced himself, leaving Ashley to believe that he’d forgotten about her too. Over the next few weeks Ashley and Neil grew closer and closer, revealed the secret of absolutely remembering each other and the rest is history.
