Jenny and David’s wedding is a love letter to not only their own love story, but also to Shanghai, the bride’s hometown where she spent her childhood with her parents and grandparents. Since Jenny was not able to go back to her hometown after her grandparents passed away, the couple decided to pay homage to her grandparents by choosing “Old Shanghai” as the theme of their big day. Set at the stylish St. Regis Toronto, the brilliant planners at Fleur Weddings were able to execute the couple’s vision and brought “Old Shanghai” in everything from the creative details to the glam atmosphere. This one dazzling wedding that you definitely don’t want to miss. Thankfully the team at AGI Studio was there and able to capture it for us all. Be prepared to be inspired!
The couple shared an adorable first look reminiscent of Cinderella before moving onto their glam photo session with their wedding party.
The couple’s ceremony is both opulent and enchanting, featuring ethereal candlelight, bold red florals, and a palatial metallic arch under which the couple exchanged their vows.
The theme of “Old Shanghai” is evident throughout the couple’s reception, from the invitation designed as a Lunar calendar to the guest name cards being tied up with mini retro bicycle bottle openers, to the retro newspaper design indicating the wedding timeline and the wedding menu. The vibe combined traditional touches with plush modern and playful elements, which also included a red-and-gold colour palette, lush florals from Flowers Time, and luxe linens from the Linen Closet. It is evident that every single thing was delicately detailed, including the groomsmen suits that were in the Chinese 70s century style, and who wore newsboy caps to hand out the wedding newspapers to the guests upon their arrival.
