About the Couple
Nicole and Carlos met through mutual friends at a social gathering back in high school. They kept in touch casually, until years later when Carlos asked Nicole to meet up with him for coffee. The two said they have been inseparable ever since. They are the type of people who really appreciate the small things in life. They wanted to be with each other no matter what, as they looked back on a collective of small moments and being there for each other through life events. Carlos proposed to Nicole following a surprise birthday dinner he had planned. He took her to the elegant 360 Restaurant in the CN Tower. Following dinner, they went on a romantic walk on the observation deck to look at the city lights, which is where Carlos got down on one knee to propose.
About the Wedding
Carlos & Nicole's favourite colours are blush and navy, which is why they chose them for their wedding colours. They then added gold and ivory and felt that this gorgeous combination was perfect. When looking at wedding details, they would always gravitate toward items that were elegant and romantic, which is what naturally led them to choosing this theme. I absolutely loved their wedding decor!
Most Memorable Moments
"The one part of our wedding that I will always remember is walking down the aisle and seeing Carlos and all the groomsmen looking so happy." – Nicole
"The one part of our wedding that I will always remember is my nephew Joaquin reading the bible verses during our ceremony. He was brave and the passages he read set the tone for our marriage." - Carlos

We knew from our first meeting that she was not only a talented photographer but an easy-going and kind person that we felt comfortable to be ourselves with.
