You guys should already know the name Toast. You've surely seem some of the beautiful photos that we have created together, but you might not have seen the gorgeous faces behind the name -- the girls who make up Toast Special Events. To quote the tagline on their "about us" page, they're not your average wedding planners. These girls have style to spare and they share a love for all things organic, ethereal, beautiful, and meaningful.
It was only fitting that when we gathered for a team photo shoot last week, the champagne was overflowing. Please enjoy a few of my favourite photos from the resort-chic inspired photo shoot for one of Ottawa's most luxurious wedding planners and her talented team.
First to introduce: Elise.
She's the face of Toast. She's the backbone. She's the visionary. We have worked together on 5 or 6 projects together this year alone, each one better than the last. I am in awe of how she operates her business. I learn something from her every time we are together. Oh, and she's gorgeous too.
The girls are so incredibly sweet. You can tell they're proud of Elise and honoured to work as part of her crew to make beautiful events come to life. Madison, Allie, Meg, and Victoria. In that order <3
I would be completely amiss if I didn't include Hugo. Basically the Toast mascot. He's Elise's favourite person. And yes, she counts him as a person.
Probably my favourite photo from the day. This photo looks exactly like Elise's personality. She's calm, cool, and collected, but ultimately warm and kind.
My sweet friend, you are more beautiful than words. Thank you SO much for inviting me into your home and including me in your team shoot. It means so much to me!
