For all of you city dreamers, this is the wedding for you. From the bride’s chic Valentino shoes and stunning Jenny Packham gown to the modern black, white and gold colour scheme of the reception at downtown Toronto’s chic Malaparte – Oliver & Bonacini, Karen & Ben’s big day is the epitome of high glamour in the big city. Today’s luxe wedding was dreamt up by our friends at Melissa Andre Events and was beautifully captured by Mango Studios.

Set against a cosmopolitan background on Malaparte’s spacious patio, even the ceremony set-up had a modern twist – lounge chairs flanked parts of the aisle rather than traditional chairs.

The bold mix of patterns and ultra-contrasting shades added a level of sophistication that was effortlessly stylish and party-perfect for this intimate urban affair. Luxury was evident everywhere in this custom-designed space, from the gold-and-black rimmed plates to the gold houndstooth chairs and floral runners made of rose hedges in shades of green and white. But this cool city wedding also had a touch of whimsy: a delicious customized popsicle bar popped up as a late-night surprise, and guests were gifted with a fun personalized porcelain mug.
