“Over the top” doesn’t begin to describe this magnificent pink fairytale wedding in Toronto
Since Shenette truly wanted to have an over the top pink fairytale wedding worthy of Cinderella, not one detail was missed. The colour palette consisted of coral, pink and gold and directly inspired every impeccable fresh floral arrangement created by Royal Orchid Florist. The moment guests walked into the reception at The Ritz-Carlton Toronto they were greeted by a custom 15-foot tall floral fountain (placed in the middle of the name card table) and given a mini bouquet of flowers. Lavish pink linens covered every table, paper flowers were incorporated on almost every chair and tables featured tall round centrepieces on gold stands. At the bride and groom’s head table, a mass of pink floral arches ran the entire length for a show-stopping textured backdrop.
To guarantee every guest was in awe upon arrival, two lion ice sculptures were placed at the doors. However, those weren’t the only ice sculptures included. In fact a total of 21 ice sculptures were placed throughout the room: 10 swan-shaped ice sculptures along the entrance aisle; two swan-shaped sculptures at the dessert table; and a 24-foot custom “U” shaped ice bar topped with four ice vases, a heart-shaped ice sculpture with two sitting doves and a custom lion luge ice sculpture where guests had the luxury of having their drinks poured through the lion. There to cap the night off in style was 12 Brazilian samba dancers for entertainment. It all added up to the most miraculous evening Shenette could have ever dreamed of.
*Shenette would like to dedicate this article to her Godfather, Senator Tobias Enverga Jr., who did an amazing speech at her wedding and unexpectedly passed away in November 2017. He was the first Filipino-Canadian to be appointed as a senator by the former prime minister of Canada, Stephen Harper. His tireless hard work, dedication and leadership for the Filipino-Canadian people will never be forgotten. He was a loving husband, father, Godfather, friend, and amazing politician. “Ninong (Godfather), you have made us very proud. Your legacy and contribution to Canada will always be remembered. You will be deeply missed and may you watch over us in heaven. You will forever be in our hearts.” -Shenette*
