Stylish Canoe Wedding In Toronto Downtown // Chelsea & Vivek 740 493 Gee & Ieva

Stylish Canoe Wedding In Toronto Downtown // Chelsea & Vivek

We had a blast shooting Chelsea and Vivek’s wedding at the Canoe Restaurant. Famous for their food sunsets and Toronto skyline views Canoe is perfect spot to tie the knot. We were curious what Chelsea and Vivek think about their big day at the Canoe so we asked couple of questions and thats what they said.
Would you like to share something about the planing process? The best piece of advice we received in the planning process was to stay true to us in the decisions that we made. We embraced this advice whole heatedly and picked our overall style, venue, and suppliers based on this criteria. At the end of the day, we were thrilled with every decision we made, and the whole event felt very authentic to who we are as people and how we wanted to celebrate the start of married life.
Would you do something differently? No – we loved how our special day turned out!
What was the most fun part of the day? We loved having so many of our friends and family from all over the world all in one place together in the city we now call home. It was truly amazing to celebrate with people who have been with us along our journey as individuals and as a couple.
Was it challenging to plan a wedding? We decided to keep things fairly simple and did not get too caught up in the details. This made for a really enjoyable, stress-free wedding planning process!

Canoe Restaurant Wedding In Toronto // Chelsea & Vivek

One frame from Chelsea and Vivek’s Canoe Restaurant wedding in Toronto downtown. Chelsea and Vivek just wanted to enjoy their day. Preparation photos were not their thing. After meeting them on 54th floor of TD Bank Tower we just followed their lead and had fun. Our couple was on fire and on top of the world. When it comes to being on top of the world on your wedding day we think its really hard to beat Canoe Restaurant. Stay tuned for more.

Canoe Restaurant Wedding Toronto // Torie and Ioan 740 493 Gee & Ieva

Canoe Restaurant Wedding Toronto // Torie and Ioan

You can spot people with a good taste from a mile away. Torie is a designer at her own company Vessel Coasters and works as a creative director at Millie Desserts so their stylish wedding comes as no surprise at all.
What really stands out for us from Torie and Ioan’s wedding besides how amazing they both looked was the venue they have picked.It’s nice to find secret spots walking on foot in Toronto its even nicer when you are watching it all from the above. Where we ended up was Canoe restaurant on Wellington street. And of course to reach Canoe restaurant you have to travel horizontally as well as vertically a bit. By bit we mean 54 floors up. When guests were arriving at Torie and Ioan’s ceremony first thing everyone did was jump to the windows. Not only hight was impressive though. Ceremony room was divided in half so guests could see bride and groom from two sides. When Torie was walking down the isle she was walking high in the sky passing rooftops of Toronto towers with wide view of Ontario lake. It was uplifting.
After spectacular ceremony another door has opened and reception area soon was filed with family and friends. Tables at Canoe Restaurant were draped with flowers beautiful table cards and golden light from the west. Canoe is famous for their sunset views. While chefs prepared top notch food, guests enjoyed mingling with their fancy drinks in their hands watching downtown Toronto under their feet and sun slipping under horizon. We finished spectacular wedding day with awesome food followed by wild party and night lights of downtown. I hope you will enjoy this post and please check at the bottom all the vendors Torie picked and her philosophy behind it.

A word from Torie:
I tried to keep our vendors pretty dispersed and tried to focus on local and small shops. I didn’t want to read wedding magazines or anything like that because I wanted it to be more of an organic process, and therefore more us; though because of that my info is kind of all over the place haha.
1. All of the flowers and things like the vases, bud vases and candle votives were by Lisa at Sweet Woodruff ( They were amazing and I was so happy with them.
2. My mom made all of our table runners and I found the card box at an antique market.
3. Invitations and table numbers were from
4. My dress was a Jenny Packham design and was purchased at White ( They were so wonderful and helpful in helping me find the right dress and then alter it to fit my needs.
5. Canoe provided all of the silverware, napkins, regular furniture, and they ordered in the ceremony chairs for me from an event rental company.
6. Ioan’s suit was Armani and shirt was Eton and was all purchased at Harry Rosen at Yorkdale. He also chose and had custom made all of the boys’ ties, pocket squares, and his own bow tie from their selection of fabrics.
7. My shoes were Nicholas Kirkwood.
8. I designed the wedding favours – they were leather coasters with gold emboss. I make coasters under my company Vessel Coasters ( :).
9. Ioan’s rose gold ring was made for him at Anice Jewellery on Ossington (
10. My platinum and diamond engagement ring was my grandmother’s and my little white gold and diamond wedding band was picked up in a shop ( in Kingston, Ontario while out with my mom. It was a great find! Took a long time to find one that worked and I was worried I never would haha.
11. Bridesmaids’ dresses were purchased through Elmwood Brides in Aurora, Ontario.
12. The bridesmaids’ presents (necklaces, bracelets, and earrings) were from Sterling in Kingston, Ontario. I got a few things in Kingston because I love their local shops. Our cottage is close by in the Thousand Islands region and Ioan and I met while attending Queen’s University. We still spend a lot of time in the area!
13. Our fun officiant was Catherine Kentridge from Custom Wedding Ceremonies ([email protected]). She did a great job of teasing info out of 2 fairly shy people haha and I loved her bright outfit! A lot of people commented on it afterwards asking if it made me mad but it actually made the whole experience super upbeat.
14. The dogs’ leashes and collars were handmade here in Toronto by Hound Collection ( and @houndcollection on Instagram), which is owned and designed by one of my best friends, Sam.
15. Our cakes were made by another one of my best friends, Christinn, who owns and operates Millie Creperie, Millie Patisserie, and Millie Cafe ( I work with her as Creative Director and manage all of her admin. We have a blast. She covered our cake with many packs of gold leaf!
16. The cake toppers were made by another friend, Jamie, who owns and designs for her business Little Bellwoods (
17. My hair, all the bridesmaids’ hair, and my mother-in-law’s hair was done by Kelly at Vescada Salon (
18. Our guest book was by Velvet Raptor (
19. Just a little special note, my dad provided the very nice 1992 vintage port we drank that night. When my parents had my older sister, a friend of my dad’s told him about the tradition of buying port from the year of your children’s birth. 1989 (my birth year) didn’t have a vintage year but he grabbed the next best one: 1992. So Ioan and I did our thank yous and toast with 24 year old port!

James Gardens Wedding // Torie

Recently we have shot a wedding at Canoe restaurant in downtown Toronto. Before heading to downtown we stopped at James Gardens for some greenery shots. We find James Gardens quite interesting park to shoot at. Front of the park is quite manicured and real nature people would call it cheese but sometimes you just have to dig deep enough and have a different point of view to find something unique. The other half of the park has a wild side to it that we would love to explore in the future. One more thing you have to be aware if you head to James Gardens on the weekend it is crazy busy. There were another four wedding shoots happening at the park once we arrived with Torie and Ioan. It goes without saying our couple was the coolest. Here is one frame with Torie from James Gardens.
