Danielle and Matthew fell in love with their Toronto wedding venue because of its luxurious historic buildings, beautiful private gardens and amazing reception space that was custom-designed with weddings in mind.
Miller Lash House is perched in the pretty valley of Highland Creek in Scarborough and was exactly the right place for their Jewish wedding.
Danielle’s wedding dress was a striking bridal fashion statement with lace, gems and embellishments all over. Her gold heels, dainty tiara and dramatic make-up, completed her look.
Then it was time for the first look and Matthew was patiently yet nervously waiting and dressed up in a modern blue suit for the occasion.
He turned to see his bride and was delighted to see how wonderful she looked. We went to the gardens in full bloom and captured romantic bridal portraits that we are sure are framed in their home today.
There was an old vintage car parked in the driveway, which is always lovely for wedding photography. It’s not the first time you’ve heard this Toronto wedding photographer get a little over excited about a mint retro vehicle.
Then inside, we took more photos because the interiors of Miller Lash House are just as spectacular as the landscaped gardens. Danielle’s long train and veil made for some iconic-looking imagery.
The wedding ceremony started with the groom and his parents entering, followed by the bridal party, including the four adorable children who were page boys and flowers girls.
Then the bride Danielle walked down the aisle with her parents to where the rabbi and groom were waiting under the elaborate chuppah. Following many Greek wedding traditions, the ceremony honored the couple’s heritage and culture. It was a beautiful, moving ceremony and the couple blissfully held hands and walked back down the aisle after being announced, man and wife.
The reception set up was a lavish white room with mood lighting, draping, and luxurious and elegant florals. Chandeliers and candles set an ambiance that was soft and romantic. After dinner and speeches, it was party time and we know how Greeks can dance and celebrate with all the joy and enthusiasm in the world.
Bright blue and purple lighting gave the sign the party was starting and soon the bride and groom were being lifted high in the air in their chairs as usually happens at a Greek wedding. This is one of many festive traditions that Greek weddings follow.
Another of course is the first dance which the wedding couple performed surrounded by a dreamy cloud of dry mist and bubbles. It was a whimsical sight to see and after that special song everyone joined in for a wave of dancing. The celebration went on for many hours with everyone have a great time.
