Every bride wants to feel like a princess on her big day and what is more royalty-like than a wedding in the garden of a castle?! One of my favourite venues of the city, every chance I get to be back in the venue I love being back. From the gardens of Casa Loma, you get the perfect view overlooking the city while being surrounded by lots of greens and flowers... and a castle!
Jenn and Paul's wedding was nothing short of spectacular. The bride first came to me with the most detailed excel spread sheets and mood boards any bride has ever sent! It was really so fun to work with her to build and design their special day. She was going back and fourth between New York City and Toronto during the planning process.
On the Big Day, Jenn wore a Anne Barge gown with the most stunning lace corset back with Paul in a handsome navy suit with custom lining. A Chinese wedding has to of course include the intimate tea ceremony in the morning followed by western ceremony inside the gardens of Casa Loma, in front of the fountain. As they kissed to seal their union, the fountains were turned back on in sync as they made their first walk down the aisle as Mr. and Mrs.! We really did luck out with some perfect fall weather. The cocktail hour included a live oyster station from Rodney's as well as 2 signature drinks, one for the bride and one for the groom. Afterwards, guests made their way into the glass tent for dinner and dancing. The tent was decorated with sheer ceiling drapery and beautiful chandeliers while still being able to see the castle but as the sun set, the stars were visible as guests enjoyed their 4-course dinner.
Being a fall wedding, we incorporated navy, greys, deep reds and lots of greenery. The tables were a combination of round and long tables with the couple sitting at a long table surrounding by their friends and family. Flower 597 framed the couple with a breath-taking arbour and garland down their table with plenty of candles to set the ambiance. Throughout the evening, there was DJ Ahmed Grim and live guitarist, Drew Wright, to entertain the guests.
The entire day went so smoothly and when the photographer, Scarlet O'Neil, sent back the pictures, I was so thrilled to go through them! Going through each of their photos, it was so great to see that their day was just as beautiful on film as it was in person but more importantly, I could see the love and the happiness in their expressions!
Congratulations again to this amazing and bubbly couple; wishing you many more beautiful moments!
