Danica + Elliott : Intimate Toronto Backyard Wedding
The week of the wedding, the forecast for the July long weekend was rainy and wild, so the original plan of having a backyard celebration at Danica’s father’s house was scratched, and a last minute gift from a family connection meant the celebration could be held at McMaster House, a century home on a private property just outside of Toronto. While the weather turned out to be beyond perfect, this site was more than we could have asked for; each room was full of character and having the whole house to ourselves really suited the vibe of the day. There’s nothing like a good house party, after all.
40 friends and family members gathered to celebrate, many from the Toronto area, and others from across the pond. It’s so so amazing to be a part of a small intimate wedding like this – so much of the day was spent visiting, starting dance parties in the sun room with plenty of air guitar, and grabbing yet another glass of Pimm’s from the bar. Danica + Elliott were able to share genuine interactions and moments with their guests, which was one of the most beautiful parts of the day. In the evening, they shared a meal + emotional (and hilarious!) speeches in the library before dancing under a single chandelier in the dining room.
Thank you both for inviting me and trusting me to capture all the special that was this day – it was an honour to celebrate with you!
