In a further sign that the special events industry has come roaring back with a vengeance, we had the pleasure of attending the industry’s first wedding open house since re-opening! Hosted at the Hyatt Place Toronto Mississauga & Luxe Convention Centre, this brand new venue and hotel in Mississauga boasts over 12,000 square feet of event space, floor-to-ceiling windows and state-of-the art lighting, perfect for all types of events from intimate occasions to grand scale celebrations! The evening was filled with an abundance of delicious food spanning Western, Chinese and Indian cuisines, interactive experiences like customized edible cookies and musical performances by DJ Emporium‘s violinist and bongo player. A big thanks to Mendes Photography for capturing the fun-filled evening. Scroll on down to see what you missed!

As guests were welcomed by the venue’s large porte cochère, you were immediately drawn to their custom-designed light fixtures which boast sophistication and retro inspiration. Following along their large pre-event space that was filled with vendor interactive experiences such as The Oyster Brothers oyster bar and the perfect photo opp from PhotoboothTO and Photo Mosaic Media, guests made their way into the venue’s Legacy Ballroom adorned with trendy boho decorations designed by Babylon Decor. With 6,000 square feet of flexible and sub-divided event space, the Legacy Ballroom featured a couple’s stage with geometric and gold accents, arrangements filled with pampas grass and dried florals and textured overlay linens showcasing guests what a real wedding could look like.

There was also a sushi station provided by Ginza Sushi! Sushi stations always make a great addition to any cocktail hour or late-night station.
