Wow, I must say photographs of this Four Seasons wedding in Toronto will rock your socks off! Alim and Kevin dated for 10 years before they exchanged their vows in front of their close family and friends on a hot summer afternoon. Everything from their custom-tailored Dolce & Gabbana suits to Cartier rings and oversized floral arrangements by Forget Me Not Flowers, speaks to impeccable taste and timeless elegance.
The whole wedding day, planned by my friend Rebecca Chan, was filled with beautiful details, like black and crystal Louis Ghost chairs and unexpected, yet amusing twists. Here are my top 3 details I remember most from that wedding:
1. Ceremony Setup
Alim and Kevin opted to meet each other halfway instead of taking a traditional walking down the aisle route. They both walked from different ends of the ceremonial arch and met each other in the center. It’s a great idea for a modern wedding and I found it very symbolical: coming from different life paths, a wedding is about two hearts merging into one.
2. Ceremony Seating
The ceremony seating was arranged in an amphitheatre style adding a communal feeling to the wedding. I liked it a lot because it meshed all guests together giving them a perfect mingling opportunity. By the end of the night most guests knew each other by name!
3. Remembering Traditions
If it’s a modern wedding, it doesn’t mean traditions are left behind. The henna on the wedding party’s hands spoke to Alim’s Indian background, and Four Seasons was a witness to a beautiful Indian ceremony following the official ring exchange. Both Alim and Kevin had henna imprints on their palms, which they merged together at the end of it.
These details and unexpected turns made this modern Four Seasons wedding into a knockout celebration and one party to remember. Alim and Kevin, I wish you both long years of happiness. It was such an honour to be a witness of your union!
