Genevieve and Derya’s big day is truly an affair to remember. The gorgeous Gladstone Hotel was the perfect intimate setting for their modern and effortlessly elegant wedding that featured a crisp neutral palette with beautiful blooms. Planned perfectly by Open Sky Weddings and gorgeously snapped by the lens of the Daring Wanderer, you’ll definitely be Pinspired by this city chic celebration!

The couple’s stylish photo session captured sweet moments amidst the uniquely striking streets of Toronto.

Keeping in line with the simple and streamlined stylings of the day, the exposed brick wall, accented by loose, organic florals, made the perfect focal point for the couple’s intimate ceremony.


The newlyweds’ reception is the perfect example of modern minimalism. The clean lines, the streamlined style and the seemingly effortless design came together to create an elegant and timeless affair. The gorgeous florals in pastels from Ashton Creative added just the right amount romance, and with the pretty flickering from the chic string lighting in the room, created the most romantic, intimate vibe. Later, guests were treated to beautifully simple floral three-tiered wedding cake from The Cupcake Shoppe.


FROM THE BRIDE: The evil eyes [guest favours] were a special touch to the Derya’s Turkish heritage. He came to Toronto from Turkey by himself for his undergraduate program. Since none of his family live in Toronto, we wanted to incorporate some Turkish touches into the wedding. It also signifies protection from negative, or evil thoughts from onlookers. We wanted to share the protection with our guests that we’ve been so lucky to experience for our entire relationship.
