Tina + Ken: Cynthia Martyn Events and 5ive 15ifteen

Pulling at my heartstring is this lovely modern yet cultural wedding. I’m completely enamoured with this wedding. I am loving this charming couple, loving the venue, Liberty Grand, and loving the colourful details; the vibrant coloured parasols illuminating the dance floor, the pink votives around the exotic hot pink orchid centrepieces,  the beautiful white bouquet with hints of pink. It’s all so dreamy, with a capital D. Creative Director and Lead Planner Cynthia Martyn exquisitely planned the wedding while 5ive 15ifteen stylishly shot the wedding. When i saw this on Cynthia Martyn’s blog I knew i had to share this with all of you.

From Cynthia’s Blog:

Of all the beautiful events we had the pleasure of being a part of in 2010, there was one colour palette that I particularly enjoyed working with, and that was the rich hues of Tina & Kenny’s peacock blue and fuschia wedding at Toronto’s Liberty Grand. It was lovely to be able to work with a stronger array of colours, and this East meets West wedding reception was a riot of colour – blues, teals, light and dark pinks. The effect was both elegant and vibrant.

Centerpieces and florals were contained within jewelled vessels and vases, holding exotic hot pink orchids. Sparkling crystal strands accented the couple’s head table backdrop, and one of my favourite decor treatments – an explosion of multi-hued parasols hung over the dance floor. And as always, lots of ambient lighting in the room to create drama.

Congratulations Tina & Kenny! Thank you to a stellar team of professionals that contributed:

Hindu Baptist Wedding by Distinct Occasions

We love elegance, we love culture and we love vibrancy and this wedding is just that…and some more.  This lovely wedding from Distinct Occasions is set to blow you away. Everything about this wedding is beautiful, the bride’s a complete stunner and the groom’s a tall glass of water. All the details play so well in tying the different cultures together into a perfect bow. We adore the square tables with silver chivaris. Crystal Adair-Benning  at Distinct Occasions has perfectly infused this lovely wedding from Toronto’s Capitol Events Theatre with culture and pure beauty.

From the wedding planner Crystal from Distinct Occasions:

In my mind the most perfect wedding are experiential ones. Blending culture with faith, joy with beauty, and passion with pleasure. For Neha & Jeremy’s valentines wedding weekend we took the Bride’s Hindu faith and blended it with the Groom’s Baptist background in a wedding blend of pure beauty.

When I first met the couple they had some pretty specific requests and wishes – of course planning a multicultural wedding was on the list – but beyond that no florals, nothing overly “valentines”, a wedding feast filled with their favourites (including greek salad, pasta, beef, grilled fish, and tiramisu), and a venue that was big enough for their potential 200 guests but not big enough for any more to prevent the guestlist from getting out of hand!

I LOVE the challenge of blending cultures and specific wishes of clients. While giving me a blank palette to start from can be equally as challenging there is something so rewarding in coming up with a wedding day design from scratch with lines drawn in the sand specific wishes/desires from the couple.

The design I envisioned for this couple was a gorgeous heartfelt symbolic wedding day filled with both of their heritages. The Bride would wear a traditional bridal lengha in a colour of her choosing (a gorgeous gold) and the Groom in a very tailored and gorgeous suit. The decor would include simple centrepieces with LOTS of candlelight and room ambient lighting. The colour scheme – a gorgeous pewter and fuschia mix. Wedding cake made of dozens of cupcakes displayed like  bouquets in bright pinks with feather accents. Photography would be heavy on the portraits (typically Indian) but really focus on the couple and their love. The entertainment would focus more heavily on the indian-fusion with local DJ Jiten rocking the dancefloor. The venue would be Capitol Event Theatre in Toronto – a former theatre turned wedding venue offering drama and luxury with a touch of “wow”! And the food… Centro Restaurant… gorgeous gourmet food with Chef’s who truly get a weddings vision and even when faced with a menu that may seem disjointed work closely with me to find the ties that bind each course together for a menu that tastes as devine as it looks!

Neha looked like the epitomy of a Bollywood Star in her golden lengha literally dripping with beading. Jeremy a resemblence to Clark Kent looked dapper and polished in his tailored suit. Bridesmaids of mixed cultures wore pale pink Indian attire and the MOH in a stunning royal blue dress. Each carried a small diya candles instead of flowers. The only flowers present infact were the bride’s very simple and utterly perfect bouquet of white calla lilies. Simple, regal and stunning.

In the end, the pictures speak for themselves. This cultural fusion wedding looked as good as it felt with two cultures, two religions, and two people joining their lives forever more. I couldn’t have been more proud for Neha & Jeremy after our year of planning to see them joined as husband and wife.

Congratulations again to the happy couple!
