When Lily & Tony decided to tie the knot, they made every part of their day special and unique. They thought long and hard enough their wishes and the feel they wanted for their wedding day. Having The Boiler House Loft wedding venue was a no-brainer. It really is a stunning wedding venue and fit their needs perfectly. The atmosphere was dark yet inviting and with it being a smaller venue, their intimate wedding fit perfectly within the space. As a Toronto wedding photographer, I can say that I never tire of the indoor venues at the Distillery – they’re all so magical.

After snapping their distillery district wedding photos in the various unique nooks and crannies of the iconic Toronto neighbourhood, Lily & Tony’s ceremony lead directly into their reception. It was a hot fall day and they didn’t want their guests to have to wait around in the warm weather which is why they opted for a first look and photo session before the ceremony. Once everyone gathered at The Boiler House Loft, the party truly started!! While their friends and family may be a small group, the spirit of those who attended was astronomically large. The music was blaring, the food was on it’s way out and the drinks were plentiful. The row seating allowed guests the opportunity to converse with many others and was ideal for snapping candids, too!
After the meal, the teeny tiny dancefloor opened and once everyone was up and dancing, there was no empty space to be found.
If you’re going to be heading to a wedding some time in the near future, remember this advice: get on the dancefloor! From a bride and groom’s perspective, the dancing is when the formalities of the day are over and the party can officially begin. The interaction and joy that dancing brings creates lasting memories for all who choose to boogie; not to mention it makes for beautiful photos. Even if you think you’re not a great dancer, your presence as an interactive participant on a wedding day will be remembered by the couple as part of their precious memories.
So let’s boogie!!
