We shot Lori and Steve’s wedding at Palais Royale in Toronto. First off, I have to say that I love Palais Royale. It’s a beautiful venue with great lighting, but best of all, they treat everyone with such care. As we were about to play the same-day edit, the sound engineer came up to me and said, “I’ve been waiting to see this. The staff has been raving about you guys all day.”
All week the forecast called for showers -100%. It rained through the preps, the photo session… wait. no. It rained up until we wanted to do a bridal party shoot out in the open, and then it cleared up for about 15 minutes, but then back to rain. About 5 minutes before the ceremony was to start (inside - which was plan B), all the rain, clouds, and gloom completely disappeared. Not a cloud in the sky! So they delayed the ceremony by 30 minutes to set up the chuppah outside (again)! And after the ceremony, what did it do? It rained. Unbelievable! Lori and Steve got so lucky. It was like the weather knew exactly when to let up.
