One of our favourite things to do as wedding planners, especially Wedding planners in Toronto, is to honour different cultural traditions. After all, that’s what makes Toronto unique to the rest of Canada, even I dare say, the rest of the world.
So today we’re throwing back to one of our first Japanese infused weddings, as featured on Style Me Pretty, EventSource.ca and the Berkeley Events Blog. With this much love, you know you've stumbled upon something beautiful!
Carly and Alex approached us looking for month management for their simple, yet bold, ceremony and reception at Airship37. Being both of Japanese Canadian backgrounds, they included little elements of their heritage into the whole day, which included several folded paper cranes to honour the tradition of having 1000 cranes on your wedding day for good luck; a sushi bar for cocktails; and Japanese blessings during the ceremony, which was presided by Carly’s uncle, and included a lot of sake!
Honouring family traditions is our privilege, and we always ask our clients how we can make their special day more personal by paying respects to their backgrounds.
So thank you to the lovely couple for including us in this special day and also letting us witness a modern twist to their wedding traditions.
Special thanks to Jessica from A Brit and a Blonde for these amazing photos!
