The overall atmosphere was warm and inviting.
The couple now living in Toronto wanted to have their reception in a boutique-style hotel downtown. After seeing the art deco design and vintage ambiance of the Grand Banking Hall at One King West, they chose it for their wedding. The overall atmosphere was warm and inviting, and Brad’s speech brought down the house with plenty of laughter and happy tears. Christine Lim captured the entire day perfectly.
St. Andrew Church, where Sam grew up attending, was where the ceremony took place in Oakville. The bride arrived in style in her grandfather’s 1961 Thunderbird with her mother, sister, and Nonno. As an ode to the song that her parents got married to years before, Sam selected Pachelbel’s Canon to walk down the aisle. Brad and Sam filled the church with their family and friends who had witnessed their relationship grow over the last eight years. After sealing it with a kiss, the newlyweds walked out to one of their favorite songs, “My Girl” by The Temptations.
The palette chosen for the overall decor scheme was periwinkle and gold, complemented by bursts of color from the wildflower-inspired bouquets. Pillar candles of varying heights were placed on each table alongside sparkly gold table numbers to set the mood. For a sentimental touch, photos of the couple and their parent’s weddings were on display on the vintage banking counters. One of the couple’s favorite pieces was the custom photo booth backdrop created to make guests look like they were sitting on the moon.
