We were ecstatic about Tanya and Michael’s wedding plans just minutes into the initial meeting. It was truly their dream wedding! We feel so lucky to work with couples like Tanya and Michael in this industry. You couldn’t find more genuine people!

We arrived at U of T’s Hart House early Saturday morning for the beautiful September wedding. The sun was shining, the birds were chirping - it was a perfect day! The ceremony was set up in the breathtaking courtyard. If you have not visited this venue before - it is a must see.

Tanya and Michael met at U of T years ago making this ceremony location even more special. The ceremony setup was simple and elegant surrounded by the beautiful architecture of the old building.

Tanya walked down the aisle in a lace wedding gown with a stunning bouquet designed by Botany Studio. We loved the pops of reds and orange incorporating Fall feels into this September wedding.

After the ceremony the bride and groom snuck away for romantic photos while cocktail hour began at the one and only Canoe towering 54 floors above the downtown core. As guests arrived from Hart House they enjoyed passed hors d'oeuvres, wine and live entertainment by GTA Strings. 

Amazing cuisine with a beautiful view of the city was an important aspect of their wedding day. It is no surprise Canoe was their number one choice. Each table setting combined white linens and flowers with pops of colour similar to Tanya’s bouquet.  As a Oliver and Bonacini venue the bride and groom, guests and vendors were treated like royalty. It was exactly what they wanted - a divine menu with a view, surrounded by their loved ones.
