We photographed her sitting for a formal Pre-wedding Portrait, every inch and glance the Lady, a Modern Bride with a Modern Twist… Tatoos and piercings aglow, her freshness and natural beauty shining , we loved following her with our camera from the studio to the Church , where she posed set like a precious glowing jewel against the grey Gothic splendor of Toronto’s St. Jamesl’s Cathedral. Arches, stone details and rose windows added a classic accent to her neo Punk resplendent style . We later enjoyed the gracious beauty of the elegant and intimate “La Maquette” directly across the street on historic King Street , one of Toronto’s oldest and prettiest restaurants … a perfect place for a perfect reception after a lovely wedding in this most historic part of our lovely city . We were so beautifully looked after and every detail was so graciously seen to by the charming maitre’d’ Alex, who is a polyglot and perfect host. Mellissa shone where ever she turned, and we captured a few parting shots of her alone, but not for long, by the grand piano. Kudos to the shining spirit of such a beautiful, unconventional and thoroughly Modern Bride.
