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.

Royal Canadian Yacht Club Wedding // Alice & Mads

Warning! This is extremely long blog post of Alice & Mads Royal Canadian Yacht Club wedding on Toronto Island so hope you love wedding pics, also it has a ton of golden reading material from our couple. Enjoy!

Upon reflecting on organizing our very international wedding I do not think it was really any more challenging than doing it from Toronto. What was really important to us was to make all of our friends and family welcome, no matter where they travelled from. For us, this was a once in a lifetime opportunity to have all of our nearest and dearest from all over the world in one place to celebrate us. We had friends in attendance from 4 continents, and travelling as far as Melbourne and Cape Town. We estimate that we had about 30 Norwegians and an additional 20 from other countries. Travel and all of the places that we’ve lived were a very important theme throughout the planning and execution of the day.
Since we live in Oslo, Norway there were some minor challenges when organizing our wedding. When we embarked on the initial planning stages of our wedding my mom and sister were happy to make suggestions and visit venues for us. In the end we ended up at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club on Toronto Island. For me, this was my dream venue and somewhere that I had always dreamed of getting married. The venue itself is gorgeous, but the whole experience from taking the boat to the island and the most incredible backdrop of Toronto is something truly unique. This gave a special added extra not only to our international visitors but to many Torontonians who had never been to the Island. We were even treated to a thunderstorm during dinner!

We had to book many of our vendors sight unseen. Given that wedding season in Toronto books up very quickly and very far in advance we did not want to risk missing out on our first choice vendors. Thankfully, every single one of our vendors delivered beyond our expectations. Mads and I planned a whirlwind wedding planning trip in February before the big day, every single day was booked with appointments relating to the wedding including: cake tastings, wedding tastings, meeting the florist, our photographers and lastly meeting our wonderful Minister, Rev. Dr. Malcolm Sinclair from the Metropolitan United Church. He was a very easy choice for us as he had married my sister only a few years previous. He styled his speech around or main passion, travel. Specifically he quoted the poem “Ithaca” by C.P. Cavafy which reads “As you set out for Ithaka hope the voyage is a long one, full of adventure, full of discovery.” These are words which the two of us will carry with us for the rest of our lives.

For Mads and I South Africa plays a very special part in our lives. It was the first time we lived together and began to plan our lives with a longer term outlook. We both studied there for our Masters degrees at the University of Stellenbosch. All of our stationary was designed by Jolindi Van der Merwe who owns Chystalace Wedding Stationary in Pretoria, this was our first nod to our special time in South Africa. On the big day I had a King Protea flower in the middle of my bouquet, this is the national flower of South Africa, and one which makes a big statement. John from Garden’s Path Floral Design was more than happy to incorporate the nods to South Africa and cheery lemon theme from our stationary into the floral design of the day.
Playing on the international theme of our wedding the dock at the RCYC was decked out in alternating Norwegian and Canadian flags. When arriving at the club to get ready in the morning it was a really special moment for both Mads and I, signifying our union. Instead of having table numbers we decided to have table names of some our favourite vacation destinations and places that we’ve lived. This was accompanied by the one DIY element of our day, a map with photos of us in those destinations. We wanted our friends from all over the world to mingle so we spent quite a while planning out our tables. We seated friends similar interests and professions together and didn’t seat couples beside each other so that everyone was forced to interact with each other. This ended up being a great decision and many people left the night with new friends. Scandinavian wedding receptions are different than a Canadian reception. Normally they have approximately 10 speeches from both family and friends (this can make the dinner a bit lengthy). In the end we had five speeches which were all hilarious and had the entire room cracking up! Our non-Scandinavian guests were also in for some fun surprises along the way. In Scandinavia if people start clinking their glass it means the bride and groom need to stand on a chair and kiss, similarly if the guests stomp their feet the bride and groom need to get under the table to kiss. Lastly, if the bride or the groom uses the washroom all the ladies line up to give the groom a kiss or the men line up to give the bride a kiss. This was a big hit and was so wonderful to get everyone participating in these traditions.
Is there anything we would change? I wouldn’t change anything in terms of logistics. All of our vendors were incredible, I would also encourage a photobooth. People who hadn’t met before were queueing up to take silly pictures with each other and it provided a great way for people to get to know each other. Seeing all of the photos after the fact was such a treat. Also, having an on the day wedding coordinator is worth their weight in gold. This was perhaps the best investment of the day! Ours was there the entire time and helped us with everything, from setting the place cards to giving us the cues to walk down the aisle. He was incredible.
The one thing that Mads and I would change would be not to stress as much and worry less. We were so nervous in the lead up and on the day, but everything works itself out. We had the most amazing support system in our wedding party and our families that there was absolutely nothing we should have been worried about. Everyone is there to celebrate you and will help you wherever possible!
It was really a special day for us. We are still getting compliments about uniqueness of our day. We know that it was special, but it is wonderful to hear how special it was to all of our family and friends, especially those who travelled to be with us.
We’d like to give a huge thank you to our amazing photographers who truly captured the magic of the day!

Airship 37 Wedding In The Heart Of Toronto // Pip & Chris 683 1024 Gee & Ieva

Airship 37 Wedding In The Heart Of Toronto // Pip & Chris

Nicely tucked in next door to Distillery District Airstrip 37 is perfect spot to celebrate wedding in Toronto downtown. We would say space at Airship 37 is what you make of it. At first glance Airship has very modern urban atmosphere. From here you can take various routes decorating the rooms and probably be safe no matter what. As we mentioned probably a thousand times we love weddings that take place at one location from start to finish. This allows more connectivity between wedding day elements. At Airship 37 staff are pros at flipping rooms from ceremony to reception so you can relax and enjoy the moments during cocktail hour. There are couple of areas to hang out, mingle, connect and reconnect with your family and friends. There is outdoor space with vintage bus jammed in for your amusement. The bus is actually fully functional prop. The other area is sort of a lounge bar area. Here you can grab a drink escape sunshine on a hot summer day or hide from the rain.
If you have a need to step out from Airship 37 grounds from whatever reason Distillery District is next door. Distillery District needs no introduction of course. Here you can grab a bite, a cup of coffee or have a drink before the celebration begins in case you early or whatever other reason. If you love people congratulating you every step of the way Distillery District is perfect for your wedding photos. If not there are plenty of spots around the area that are more private and we been using to take pictures for years.
As always worth mentioning space without people it’s just that an empty space.
We had fantastic time shooting Pip and Chris wedding at Airship 37. We walked through Distillery District enjoyed sunshine during cocktail hour and finished big day with sparkles. Please scroll for the photos that we think tell a better story than words. Cheers!

Airship 37 is another awesome wedding venue in Toronto downtown. Airship 37 located next door to Distillery District so you can be sure that all your wedding photography spots is walking distance from the venue. Therefore you can spend more time in front of the camera instead of siting in the traffic on the way to some other location. It’s run by Berkeley Events so you know you getting quality service. Recently we shot Pip and Chris wedding at Airship 37 and totally love the space and atmosphere of the venue. Here is one with our super laid back awesome couple.

Berkeley Church Wedding Toronto // Lia & Mike 683 1024 Gee & Ieva

Berkeley Church Wedding Toronto // Lia & Mike

Berkeley Church in Toronto is unique wedding venue and thankfully will not be consumed by another condo building just yet. Sadly it’s not so great news for Berkeley Fieldhouse. This year we will be shooting some of our last weddings at the Berkeley Fieldhouse. Toronto attracting more and more people who want’s to live and play here and naturally city needs to grow. It’s kind of good thing from one perspective and not so great from the other. More people means more vibrant city and that’s awesome. It’s also sad to loose some unique places including some great wedding venues to a condo buildings. As space in Toronto shrinks many unique store fronts, coffee shops and restaurants closing their doors as owners can’t keep up with sky rocketing leases or just sold off to a developer. Once new building is build old restaurant, coffee shop or a specially wedding venue space is not necessary replaced with the new one. Buildings that are build without consideration for the neighbourhood destroys charm and atmosphere of the area. For us directly it means less interesting corners to shot at. New shiny building walls just don’t have the same feeling like old beat up but full of character brick walls. Would be sad to see Toronto become one giant condo with bunch of Starbucks coffee shops on concourse level. Hopefully we will still have enough awesome buildings left to celebrate unique weddings in and not be forced out of the Toronto to some banquet hall in the middle of a parking lot.
For now lets enjoy what’s left. Let’s celebrate warmth, emotion and uniqueness. As much as these words describe Berkeley Church it also describe Lia and Mike. These two not only embraced Berkley Church old atmosphere but also build a beautiful alter that they got married under. After spending little bit of time with our couple we knew that their connection to each other goes way back before this awesome wedding.

Propeller Coffee Wedding Toronto // Jenny & Matt 683 1024 Gee & Ieva

Propeller Coffee Wedding Toronto // Jenny & Matt

We asked for isight into Jenny and Matt’s wedding at Propeller Coffee Co. from Ali Harrison, a local paper cutting artist and owner of Toronto-based arts business Light + Paper and thats what she had to say.

I am not a wedding planner. I am actually not even a “wedding person.” But I do have a love for making beautiful things, an annoying attention for detail, and a hidden desire to boss people around. So, when my good friends Jenny and Matt asked me to help with a few aspects of their wedding, I quickly grew addicted to the power and soon became de-facto wedding planner.
Jenny and Matt agreed that they wanted to throw a chill, fun party for their friends and family, with great food and music. Neither of them had ever dreamed of the perfect 3-tier wedding cake, the designer gown, or the towering centrepieces, so planning the night became a game of “how can we make this the most fun?” and “how can we decorate with what we have laying around?” Luckily, Jenny and Matt know how to throw a good party, and I have A LOT of stuff laying around.
It was decided that Propeller Coffee would be the perfect venue for the relaxed affair. It was downtown, open concept, with outdoor space, and the rustic minimal interior meant that we didn’t have to do much to dress it up. Jenny and Matt loved the offerings from Citizen catering, and decided on both passed appetizers and food stations inside and outside. The menu included so many delicious offerings, my favourites were the oysters, porchetta, and tuna ceviche.
For the decor, we wanted to accentuate the beautiful space with some colourful additions. We added string cafe lights and rows of paper tassels to the ceiling, succulent centrepieces on wooden boards on the tables, polaroid cameras with Jenny and Matt’s faces as photo props, and our crown jewel – the hanging paper garland backdrop. The pops of colour in the decor perfectly accented Jenny and Matt’s outfits, her blue shoes and his suit, and the orange and pink in her bouquet.
Having an art studio and access to a lasercutting machine meant that we had a relatively easy time at the DIY aspect of the decor. We borrowed the tassels from a friend, and used vases and bottles we both had collected – the only tricky part was fitting all the flowers into my studio’s mini-fridge. Having decided to keep most aspects simple, we did want to create a magical and ambitious piece for the backdrop, and being a paper artist, I aimed high. We sewed together colourful paper shapes into long strings, to be hung in front of the large windows at Propeller.
Watching Jenny and Matt meet under the paper backdrop, with light streaming in through the windows was magical. They were married and the party could begin! With many high fives, heartfelt speeches, and polaroids passed around, the night flew by. However, the best moment came at the arrival of the Ice Cream Truck – when all the guests piled out to the street to order soft serve cones, popsicles and slushies. We danced around Jenny and Matt, who had tied giant balloons to their backs, holding sticks with photos of their faces glued to them in one hand, and ice cream cones in the other – the funnest, most perfect moment that still makes me uncontrollably smile.

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 (http://sweetwoodruff.ca). 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 minted.com.
4. My dress was a Jenny Packham design and was purchased at White (http://whitetoronto.com). 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 (www.vesselcoasters.com) :).
9. Ioan’s rose gold ring was made for him at Anice Jewellery on Ossington (https://www.anicejewellery.com)
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 (http://www.frontenacjewellers.com) 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 (www.houndcollection.com 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 (http://milliedesserts.com). 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 (http://www.littlebellwoods.com).
17. My hair, all the bridesmaids’ hair, and my mother-in-law’s hair was done by Kelly at Vescada Salon (http://www.vescada.com).
18. Our guest book was by Velvet Raptor (http://www.velvetraptor.com).
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!

Spring Berkeley Fieldhouse Wedding // Bri & Adam 1024 683 Gee & Ieva

Spring Berkeley Fieldhouse Wedding // Bri & Adam

So far this year has been super busy for us and seems like spring was just here. So we thought we will share this spring Berkeley Fieldhouse wedding with you. If you think these two cool cats look familiar to you, you are right, we shot their engagement at Riverdale Farms last fall. It was really nice to observe Bri and Adam and spend some time together. One of the advantages attending weddings as a wedding photographer is to see the whole day from beginning to the end. Bri and Adam picked Berkeley Fieldhouse for their ceremony and reception. Every time these two words fits in to a one place we know its going to be awesome wedding. We shoot at Berkeley Fieldhouse and Berkeley Church quite often and wrote about both of these venues before so there is not much to add to it. No mater how many times we visit same wedding venues, people always make space their own. Walls can be the same but people will bring their own atmosphere colours and characters. That same old place suddenly becomes new. To capture you as a couple and reflect essence of your wedding day is number one goal for us. We know that this is a quest of the life time. No matter how much we shoot there is always new things to learn and improve.
