Ashley & Thomas' spring Wedding was nothing short of charming and whimsical. And wow what a view indeed at the Vue and Clubhouse Wedding venue.
The Vue and Clubhouse are two separate Wedding venues in one location, with the Vue at the upper level of the establishment. Ashely & Thomas chose the Vue. And what a view indeed, with large windows offering so much natural light and greens stretching for miles with a scenic game of golf in the background. Inside the Vue, it offers a charming and cozy atmosphere. Then as the party starts, the Vue transforms into an upscale nightclub-feel. As you can see from the photos, cool vibes and some spectacular colours made the Vue a great place to party.
The bridal party was a hoot, we had so much fun with them. They were open to so many ideas and were just a blast to hang around with. As Thomas & Ashely were married on May 4th, of course there had to be some re-enactments of their favourite Star Wars characters. There are tons more photos of the fun with this gang, and only a snippet here.
Ashley & Thomas' Love Story
We both met at our previous jobs at SickKids. Tom was a security officer and I was Transporter. While Tom was stationed at the front desk I would often have to use the phone there to check up on patient status so that gave us the opportunity to notice one another and say hello a few times.
After having to say hello SEVERAL times we finally had the courage to introduce ourselves and at that nervous moment we knew something sparked. The beard caught Ashley’s eye and the long wavy hair caught Tom’s eye which reminded him of his favorite character of GOT.
We gave it a shot and fell in love! I think we both knew after the first date being 10 hours long of full conversation that we would be the perfect fit together.
Every year on February 5th we celebrate our anniversary at the same place we had our first date.
Well on the 4th year tom decided to re-enact the whole first date and propose where we had our very first kiss which was at a stop light at a busy intersection downtown Toronto. It was freezing but a dream come true!
What happens in the Elevator, stays in the Elevator, haha!

Ashley & Thomas' Wedding was whimsical and fun and filled with so many romantic moments. The sky was moody, with a hint of grey-purplish tones. I really think Spring Weddings are so beautiful and romantic. We had a lot of time to spend with them and we had the opportunity to capture some beautiful memories.
The Staff at the Vue and Clubhouse were very accommodating.
We asked if we could take some photos at the pergola. It was fun.
The Vue offers plenty of light streaming in from the windows for a soft, light and airy look and feel to the photos. Thier romantic first dance was dreamy.
The cool, fun vibe of the Vue at party time.
Might I be so bold? Thomas' twin brother, next in line? She caught Ashely's bouquet, just sayin'... insert winky emoji here, haha! ;)
Tips from Ashely & Thomas
Don’t sweat the small stuff! You can’t control your wedding day but you can control how you handle the night. Feel free and enjoy the moments and don’t worry about everything!
Kind Words from Ashely & Thomas
Cecilia was exactly what I needed on my special day! Cecilia has a warm and gentle personality which made me feel so comfortable about myself and gave me the confidence I needed to take some great pictures. She was so patient and calm when times were hectic. The thing that stood out for me was she got along with my whole family like she belonged there and didn’t take away and make things awkward for Tom and I when having our special moments. This truly shows her warming character. You can see she takes every opportunity that comes to her and it clearly shows her passion for photography.
Mike is so friendly, professional and great to have around. Mike was adaptable to any event of the day with me and the groomsmen. He captured all our fun moments. There was a moment where I was having a chat outside with my Father and I remember Mike trying to get a good shot of us having that special moment.
You both were meant to be together doing photography as it shows you both have such a great passion for it and want your work to be the best. I absolutely love how you both are in the moment taking the same picture in different angles. You both are great to be around and make things so much fun on such a crazy, exhausting action-packed day!
Thank you Ashely & Thomas for choosing us to be your Wedding Photographers. We were honoured to photograph such a beautiful and kind couple. (And might we add, May the 4th be with you)!!
