Jessica and Michael are the epitome of high school sweethearts. They went to prom together and, also, celebrated their 10 year anniversary just before tying the knot. They love to travel, spend time with their family and friends, tasting new and fun foods together, and exploring their local Toronto neighbourhoods. So it’s not surprising that their wedding at The Great Hall was as cozy and intimate as their relationship. Planned with The Event Design Co., their big day boasted elegant florals, a rich colour palette and thoughtfully minimalistic touches. The bride looked stunning in a classic gown by The Modern Bride and her gorgeous hair and makeup was done by the Toronto Beauty Group. Thankfully the creative lens of Pure Aperture was on hand to snap each beautiful moment.

If you’re looking for ideas to pull off an intimate event that evokes modern elegance and cozy vibes, the couple’s reception has it all. Dim candlelight, metallic accents, and deep rusted tons made for a romantic and intimate — even sultry — vibe. During cocktail hour, noise raced down the hallways, and by stepping one foot into the room, you could feel the genuine connection between everyone. Guests feasted on delicious fare by Gusto 54 Catering and yummy apps by Oyster Boy. Later guests danced the night away to the tunes of Giovanni MacDonald, DJ Humilium.
