Rachelle and Ryan were married in a traditional church ceremony at Assumption University Chapel followed by an indoor reception at St. Clair Centre for the Arts in Windsor, Ontario, Canada on August 10. “We chose our venue because of the spectacular view of the Detroit skyline, and the beautifully landscaped riverfront gardens,” Rachelle said. The bride wore an ivory sweetheart a-line wedding gown with a ruched bodice, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down in loose curls, while the groom wore a three-piece gray suit, accessorized with a pink tie. Bridesmaids complimented one another in differing metallic shades and carried bouquets of roses, orchids, and dahlias. Did you notice that the ring bearer’s cufflinks were Lego pieces? “The one moment that will play in my mind forever is walking down the aisle with my father by my side and seeing Ryan looking back at me with such love in his eyes, and the overwhelming feeling of knowing that this was the best day of my life,” she said. There even was a bag piper who played during the processional! Following the nuptials, the reception followed inside the St. Clair Centre for the Art’s ballroom. The tables were draped in silk linens, and “delicately cascading floral arrangements created an ambiance of an enchanted forest,” Rachelle said. Bonus: A Latin-inspired band performed followed by a DJ. Two for one!

Jenny and Christian were married at Malaparte in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada on July 20. “Malaparte had everything we were looking for, but the venue’s location was key!” Jenny said. “It is located just two blocks from where we live, so we walked to our wedding.” The bride walked down the aisle wearing a sweetheart ball gown, accessorized with a jeweled sash, while the groom stood waiting, wearing a black suit, accessorized with a gray tie. Jenny’s favorite moment? “Standing at the altar and holding Christian’s hands, with everything else a blur but knowing that that moment was the beginning of our lives together,” she said. The reception followed inside the the 6th story of the TIFF Bell Lightbox with floor-to-ceiling cityscape views. Did you notice their ceremony was outside in an amphitheatre? Tables were decorated with tall floral centerpieces featuring yellow flowers, floating candles, and chewy lime sugar cookies at each place setting, which served as favors. “It was really important to us to highlight customs from my Chinese background,” Jenny said. “We had a tea ceremony, lion dance, and table-to-table toasting during dinner.” The cake was also a hit! It had two different flavors: passion fruit with fresh berries and salted caramel chocolate. Yum!

Lisa and Shawn were married at Mildred’s Temple Kitchen in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on October 15.  (Fun fact: it has an open-concept kitchen!) Prior to the ceremony, the couple decided to have a first look to calm those nervous jitters. The bride wore a sweetheart lace wedding gown, accessorized with a crystal rhinestone belt and floral hairpin in her loose curls, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with fun striped socks. Cocktail hour featured a delectable cheese buffet, including Guinness cheddar, bleu benedictine, and Pierre Robert just to name a few. The reception was lit with floor-to-ceiling windows and decorated with white hydrangea and red dahlia centerpieces wrapped in burlap. Guests enjoyed dinner and dancing until their tummies were full and feet were ill. To their surprise, late-night snacks were served — mini hamburger sliders and poutine aka french fries topped with a gravy-like sauce and cheese curds.

Caroline and Braden were married at the Distillery’s Fermenting Cellar in Ontario on July 12. The 7,500 square foot industrial chic space featured timber beams and trusses as well as original limestone walls, which were uplit with purple. The bride walked down the aisle wearing a sweetheart ruffled ball gown, accessorized with a jewel-embellished belt and hairpin against her loose curls whereas the groom wore classic black suit with a patterned tie. The ceremony was decorated with tree branches in urns and dangling crystals, and the reception was decorated with lots of candles in tall votives. Think gliz and glamour with a bit of Persian influence. Drummers played during their entrance and dancers performed during their exit. How fun!

Contemporary Purple Fall Loft Wedding in Canada

Nicole & John 

September 26 

Toronto, Ontario, Canada 


From the photographer: “When I first met Nicole and John a few months before their wedding, I knew right away that we were the perfect match for each other. Their vision of an elegant and classy wedding, without any pomp and circumstance came together perfectly at 99 Sudbury, their venue of choice for the reception. Their day started off with Nicole getting ready at the Royal York hotel in downtown Toronto, followed by a Catholic ceremony at a Croatian church, and a great party at 99 Sudbury. A Croatian band, and a band from Nova Scotia played live music until well past midnight. Enjoy the photographs!” — Andreas of Photography by Andreas
