What a wedding reception I photographed last Thursday in Thornhill, ON. The reception was for Ashley and Shaul who exchanged their vows in Israel in July, but returned home for a Toronto reception where the party continued. The residence was breathtaking and included tennis courts, a luxurious swimming pool, beautiful sunflowers throughout the property and amazing guests. It was quite obvious just how much detail was put into the reception so it was a treat to photograph.
My favorite part was the extended horah that was full of energy, excitement and action. Normally, horahs are fun, but this one had character and seemed to go on forever. After some short speeches, everybody settled into either a sofa by the pool, assembled at one of two bars, or conversed by a flat screen LCD set up outside playing the wedding ceremony that took place earlier in the summer.
I especially loved the family dogs (being a dog guy myself) that also joined in the festivities all night. The weather was perfect, the mood was awesome and I was happy that Sheena was not there with me or else she would have noticed the kitchen that is, well, "larger" than ours, to say the least. It saves me having to explore possible renos at our house in the future.A huge Mazel Tov to Ashley and Shaul and we wish them a safe trip back to Israel where they can begin their journey in life together!
