A road trip through the Pacific Northwest

Five years ago, we did a southern California road trip and thought that was colossal…little did we know that an even more stunning scenery is located northbound! Starting from San Francisco, right through the rows of the ancient giant redwood trees, tracing highway 101 along the beautiful Oregon coast, all the way up to Seattle, back down to Portland, Sacramento and finally ending back where we started in San Francisco. Here are a few highlights of our Mega Road Trip through some of nature’s finest eye candy.

An intimate wedding at the Archeo Restaurant

The irresistible magic and romance of Toronto’s Distillery District is simply a magnet for a lot of locals, tourists and of course, couples getting married! I have photographed at the Distillery many times in the past, but amazingly, I have never shot a wedding at the same venue more than once! Enter the ARCHEO — A contemporary pizza and pasta house located in the Distillery’s old carpentry shop. The atmosphere is intimate and the design is beautiful, featuring 150-year-old wood from the distillery in all of the tables and bars. Archeo’s cozy patio is also one of the best get-away spots in the city and I just love how it’s kind of in its own little world! …which served as a perfect backdrop for this couples’ first look! 🙂
