This adorable pair got ready in a gorgeous Air Bnb, had a portrait session in downtown Toronto, and celebrated their ceremony and reception at the modern and industrial Second Floor Events on King St. Toronto. We’re head over heels with the bride’s beautifully delicate A-line gown, the groom’s impeccable velvet jacket, and the exquisite florals. Read on for the full story.

Getting Ready

One advantage of getting ready in a bigger house is you can host your close family and friends for an intimate, mini-celebration before the real celebration. Our couple had a sweet first look inside the house, and a chance for a bride reveal for close F&Fs.

The rich, fall tones around the house made a dramatic, classic contrast for the couple’s portrait sessions. The dark grey exterior walls and the manicured pines around the door made a perfectly cozy niche for our couple of the day.

We relocated to downtown Toronto and grabbed some quick shots King St. on our way to the venue. How about that editorial vibe with this black and white wall we found in an alleyway?

Second Floor Events Wedding Ceremony

2nd Floor Events boasts an incredible urban, modern, and industrial charm, with its open-concept space and large steel-framed windows on exposed brick walls. As the sun sets, this space elevates its romantic ambiance with string lights and candles, surrounded by Coriander Girl‘s gorgeous floral design. Speaking of florals, this colour palette is really quite perfect for fall – dusty pinks, whites, pops of burgundy, and soft, fluffy pampas grass. Simply dreamy.

Second Floor Events Wedding Reception

The reception space was decked out with long tables, convenient for intimate conversations. This renovated heritage space framed the couple’s engagement photos into these customizable lightboxes hanging right above the bar (How cool was that?!) With the flickering candle lights, the night carried on with entertaining speeches, amazing food, and of course lots of dancing.

If you’re dreaming of an urban, industrial, and modern wedding in the heart of Toronto, I hope this provides some inspiration. Let us know what kind of wedding you’re planning – city, country-style, elopement?
