Hillary and Nikola chose to be surrounded by their closest family and friends to witness and celebrate at their Toronto City Hall wedding. This intimate affair was surrounded by their closest family and friends, making it a micro-wedding to remember. From the first kiss to the romantic stroll down Queen Street West and through Osgoode Hall, it was an honour to capture their love on camera.

Elopements and micro weddings have been gaining in popularity in recent years. Couples are opting for smaller, more intimate options when saying their vows, freeing up cash for a big party with friends and family, or so they can really ball out on an unforgettable honeymoon. Regardless of whether you want to elope or want a big wedding, what matters at the end of the day is you and your partner showing and sharing your love with the people that care about you most.
