Elegant weddings never go out of style. You can always rock the verve and energy of the 50’s, be glamorous in the luxurious Art Deco of the 1930’s, or just mix the overall idea of a fashionably vintage-themed wedding. You can never go wrong with this style of wedding because for sure it will absolutely capture the hearts and minds not only of the bride and the groom but also of the people they love.
The dreamy, vintage wedding ceremony of Ivy and Adrian was a celebration of something old that’s new again, and something new that will age as the time passes by. If you think about it, a vintage kind of wedding is really ideal because of what it symbolizes. The Chen and Ng nuptials breathed romance and ardor and we are glad to share their photos with you.
The bride prepared at the Four Season Hotel Toronto on Yorkville before proceeding to St. Anne’s Parish for the main wedding ceremony. Ivy wore a stunning, backless Vawk bridal gown, and a pair of gorgeous pointed shoes by Manolo Blahnik. Her makeup was done beautifully by Amy Pigeon while the intricate flair of her hairdo was styled by Jie Matar from Salon Jie. The beautiful combination of Ivy’s wedding dress, hair and makeup was completed by a set of sapphire ring and earrings and a silver bracelet from the family heirlooms.
Adrian, in his gray tuxedo and black bowtie looked charmingly dashing and absolutely ready to get hitched. He couldn’t remove his gaze off of her bride the moment Ivy walked the aisles of the church. The two whispered their sweet “I Do’s” to each other while putting on their beautiful wedding bands created by Mona Clara Jewellers. The newlyweds, with rings shining on their fingers, proud and euphoric, faced the guests with jubilant and blissful smiles on their faces for they can finally say, “Married at last!”
Aside from the main ceremony of Ivy and Adrian’s tying of the knot, another highlight for that day was at the reception which was held at the Casa Loma, Toronto’s majestic and impressive castle. The elegance that is Casa Loma perfectly complemented the vintage-themed wedding of Ivy and Adrian.
The lovebirds arrived through a white limousine from the Trevi Livery Limousine and Coach Services and then grabbed the opportunity to have their photos taken while the guests settled down at the Casa coming from St. Anne’s Church. It was like a scene from a fairy tale where the prince finally marries his princess. Together with the bridal entourage, we captured the moment outside the castle and it looked exactly like a family picture of noble bloods. The bridesmaids in their Reem Acra gowns and Tiffany & Co. earrings exuded grace and class while their equally handsome counterparts oozed with gallantry. The luxurious and opulent gardens of this castle filled the already dreamy atmosphere with a more romantic aura and we definitely enjoyed taking photos of Ivy and Adrian in these greeneries.
The Casa Loma’s library which was bursting with history and heritage was transformed into a banquet hall fit for royalty. Phoebe Lo Events made sure that the planning and décor design was well-catered for and they didn’t disappoint. Everything was in order and nothing was amiss. Green and Ivory blooms adorably arranged by Mary’s Flower Shoppe adorned the tops of tall and slender, crystal candelabra vessels which were placed at the center of the round dining tables. The ambient setting established a soft mood for everyone as they awaited the delectable cuisine prepared by the Casa Loma Catering.
Later that night, Ivy changed into an exquisite, custom-made formal wear and let her hair down, still radiating elegance and class. The newlyweds couldn’t take their eyes away from each other and each moment was enchanting. Together they sliced their white, three-tiered cake which was impeccably made by Sweet Definition and then later on shared their first dance as husband and wife.
The whole wedding ceremony of Ivy and Adrian until the reception was like a dream even for us. We are quite sure that everyone who attended the celebration experienced a magical moment that would inspire and move them to continue loving and sharing life’s most precious treasures that money and material wealth can never equal to.
