After being in the industry for several years, we always revel in the idea of having weddings in unique and out-of-the-box locations. My prayers were answered when Emily and Michael approached me to plan the rest of their wedding.
Paying homage their "nerdy" roots, Emily and Michael booked the Ontario Science Centre's Telus Room, without having looked at it prior and fueled by the idea of having their wedding photos be amongst some of the coolest science exhibits in the province. Our job was to mix their own love for science (they are both pharmacists) and their deep Chinese roots seamlessly, while appeasing families and their own tastes so that it made everyone happy!
The result was perfection. After the traditional Chinese door games and tea ceremonies, the bridal party were whisked off to the Science Centre where they ventured through caves and light tunnels for their photos, before walking down the petal-covered aisle. After a brief post-ceremony treat of nitrogen ice cream, they then joined their guests at Diamond Banquet Hall for a traditional 10 course banquet, complete with all the fix-ins, and embarrassing but entertaining games with guests.
And in true Chinese fashion, all was wrapped up by 11:30 pm, and the bride and groom left the hall over the moon.
