This real wedding is truly a celebration that exudes major style – we especially love the bride’s ruby hued Alice & Olivia pumps. Held at Mildred’s Temple Kitchen — with a stop at the Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto for some photos along the way — Valerie and James’ big day is both incredibly chic and romantic. The couple wanted the day to be about everyone having fun and spending time with those who were nearest and dearest to them. Luckily, Avenue Photo was on hand to capture the memories.

The couple share an adorable first look at the hotel before moving onto their swanky urban photo shoot.

The couple’s modern and elegant reception was punctuated with darling DIY and personal touches. From family photographs and jars of honey for their guests, to the brightly hued florals, the newlyweds’ soiree was as stylish as it was sentimental.
