This past Wednesday, we had the pleasure of attending Paradise Banquet & Convention Centre‘s Annual Wedding Open House to catch a glimpse of one of Vaughan’s most celebrated halls. Paradise crafted an exceptional event that guests won’t soon forget. Luckily, One Squared Photography was on hand to capture all of the stunning details.

We particularly appreciate the glamorous decor displays presented throughout the venue. From head tables, guest linens, and lighting, each room was uniquely decorated to showcase the luxurious and opulent space.

Each well-appointed ballroom featured lavish decor from Femina and team at Decor With Grandeur, with romantic lighting supplied by the in-house audio/visual team at Good Vibrations.

Engaged couples milled through the venue taking tons of photos and chatting with vendors. Throughout the evening, patrons sampled delicious beverages and gourmet fare, such as beet marscapone risotto, crepes, and hand-pressed paninis. The bites were tasty and plentiful, and offered a small glimpse into the many options provided by the in-house catering team.

As couples perused the event spaces, Paradise’s friendly staff were on hand to answer questions and direct the guests toward the vendors who were also on site.


One of the busiest stations of the night – Paradise’s fab wedding cakes made in-house, complete with samples! The cakes are stunning – with traditional designs and trendier options like ruffled and painted cakes.

Toward the end of the evening, the hosts welcomed guests into the main ballroom and featured a live faux wedding, complete with bridal entrances, first dances, and entertainment! The crowd loved it, and almost everyone joined in on the dance floor to experience the magic of a first dance at Paradise under their signature chandelier.

We loved watching the happy couples as they took part in the festivities of the night, of which there were many! iEvent Rentals got the party going with live samba dancers in colourful costumes and choreographed moves.

Video Gems Productions put together a great video recap of the night.

It was a treat to watch delighted guests take part in the different aspects of the faux wedding. Paradise hit the mark with their Open House, as proven by the hundreds of happy guests leaving with smiles on their faces. This event was such a resounding success!
