Stately Knox College Chapel Wedding Photography | Alexandra + Chris = Married! | Evergreen Brick Works
Stately Knox College Chapel Wedding Photography… The four of us here at GreenAutumn joined forces again as Alexandra and Chris, high school sweethearts, tied the knot nearly ten years after they got together! The big day began with a game of soccer for Chris and his guys at St. Helen Catholic School‘s schoolyard just down the street, followed by a round of homemade pancakes at his parents’ home. Chris added a cool detail to his and his groomsmen’s attire by having each of them wear a different Marvel Comic super-hero on their socks. Meanwhile, Alex and her bridesmaids were occupied with hair and makeup at her house, as Alex waited for the reality of what’s to come to sink in! The ceremony took place at the incredible Knox College Chapel at U of T. We love this beautiful relic with its magnificent architecture, grand staircase and courtyard. Portraits followed at Evergreen Brick Works where we dodged the rain, and after it slowed a little, embraced it for some outdoor shots in the green space surrounding the buildings. After ducking into Cafe Belong with the wedding party to rejuvenate, we made our way over to Borgata Wedding & Events Venue for Alex and Chris’ cocktail hour and dinner reception! The evening began with a brother’s prayer for the newlyweds to be the start of something great on TLC, Twenty-eight and Counting! We haven’t heard how Alex and Chris feel about the idea, I suppose only time will tell… Congratulations, Alex and Chris! We are thrilled for you both and honoured to have been a part of it!
You may remember these two from their romantic sunset engagement session on one of Toronto’s islands! In case you missed it, check it out here. And don’t forget to check out their wedding highlight reel at the end of this post!

1940s Inspired Glenerin Inn and Spa Wedding Photography… Look out world, here comes Will and Charlie. MARRIED! This hilarious pair are so full of life and personality that their wedding would have been awesome no matter what they did. But they did things right and hosted their wedding at the charming and vintage Glenerin Inn and Spa situated in the Sawmill Valley of Mississauga. The Glenerin Inn matched their 40’s theme perfectly. Charlie and Will are not your “average” couple. They are full of life, have zany personalities and the best quirky sense of humour around. They also have awesome style and appreciate the post-war Big Band era of the 1940’s! Pretty much everything about their wedding was a throwback to the fabulous decade. Charlie (or a young brunette Lucille Ball) looked amazing in her tea length retro wedding dress while her bridesmaids looked like a group of Spitfire Girls all dolled up and ready for a night out on the town. Meanwhile, Will and the boys were looking dapper in their suits as they put the last minute details into place! The white sanctuary and reception room was adorned with white and cherry red. Bringing in a more personal and sentimental side of things were the numerous DIY elements! For starters, Charlie’s mom did all of the wedding planning for the pair, saving them from A LOT of the usual stress one can experience leading up to the big day. Close friends of the couple are responsible for the engagement portrait that was captured and then turned into a graphic art piece presented at the guest signing table. Charlie’s sister was the mastermind behind the bride’s brooch bouquet and all of the brooches adorning the bridesmaids’ bouquets. Family and friends pitched in with much of the décor placement, putting the finishing touches together while the bridal party was busy getting ready.
We are extremely excited to share Will and Charlie’s wedding portraits and video! As you will see, it very much reflects who they are and what their big day was like – SO MUCH FUN!
