A magical blend of modern and traditional – the Royal Conservatory of Music in Downtown Toronto makes an incredibly tasteful wedding venue.

Royal Conservatory of Music Wedding – Atrium

Let’s talk about these incredible walls of windows, soaring ceilings, and grand modern staircases at the atrium of Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM).  Bright, glowing lighting; minimal lines; and a neutral, contemporary colour palette – simply divine for a portrait session for our bride and groom, Melinda and Eric.

We couldn’t get enough of Melinda’s incredible A-line gown and loose up-do perfectly suited for her elegant temperament. Her bridesmaids were in soft pale blush gowns, again, creating a classy combo surrounding our bride. You can probably tell that we were obsessed about the grand stairs, especially those profile shots of Melinda against the floor-to-ceiling windows.

Just as you thought this was a modern building marked by the glass and steel, turn around and you’ll be greeted by red bricks and stone-covered walls that make up the original, traditional part of the RCM. How breathtaking are these mini-balconies that pop out of the red brick walls!? Especially when you catch that ray of light from the glass ceiling above?! Simply magical.

Grace Toronto Church

The ceremony was held at the Grace Toronto Church. This was quite a bright church, with great natural lights, and a gorgeous organ pipe backdrop. It’s quite spacious with two levels to host your guests, and some pretty windows for a few quick portrait shots as you walk out.

We can’t get enough of the way Melinda and Eric walked out together as husband and wife amongst the happy cheers.

University of Toronto

We took a walk outside for some family portraits around Trinity College of the University of Toronto. Trinity College is one of our favorite spots for portraits, the luscious greeneries, and historical architecture makes a handful of gorgeous backdrops. We walked back to the RCM through the Philosopher’s walk, another lovely spot for portraits lined by well-groomed greeneries.

RCM Reception Hall – Leslie & Anna Dan Galleria

There are a few reception options at the RCM to accommodate various party sizes. This one was at the Leslie & Anna Dan Galleria, a generous open space under the soaring glass ceilings. Surely you can tell how much fun this party was, dancing the night away under romantic string lights. What a joy~
