Mississauga Grand

Danielle and Chris utilized Mississauga Grand for their larger-than-life wedding this spring. It’s a lovely venue with super friendly staff who really helped us out. It’s the type of hall that can transform for any event. Especially this classy red-themed event.

I first got to work with these two last month at their winter engagement shoot. But if you want to go even deeper, I met Danielle and her sister-in-law Diana at an open house for Black Creek Pioneer Village. Both of them were recently engaged and planning their weddings. Despite the fact that neither of them chose to have their wedding at that venue, they both chose me at the photographer. They had the meeting together, signed their contract together, and planned pretty much all their wedding details together. Every bride needs a sister-in-law like this. They were both warm, charming, and witty. Working with brides like this always pushes my creative boundaries to the limit. Which results in some really dynamic shots.

Unexpected

In the 8 years, I have been shooting weddings, I never had something like this happen to me. Flat tire on my way to the ceremony… What? I’ve never had a flat in my life. And here I am heading to a wedding ceremony at Salvation Army Mississauga Community Church, which was running late as it was. Being this was my first flat, it did take me 20 minutes to fix, which is the standard timeframe of a traditional Christian wedding. So glad I had a second shooter who knew what she was doing. If I didn’t, I would have abandoned my car off the side road and hailed a cab.

Aside from those stressful 20 minutes, the rest of the day went pretty smoothly. They had their portrait session at Kariya Park, and wedding reception at Mississauga Grand. Beautiful wedding. And I will be meeting a lot of the same guests this fall when I photograph Danielle’s brother’s wedding. Can’t wait.

Aside from their engagement shoot, I will also be photographing Danielle’s Maternity Session next year and their daughter’s Newborn Shoot.
