Weddingbells (Toronto) - - DESTINATIONS HOT HONEYMOONS -

FROM PAIGE: Our theme was a “re­ally ex­cel­lent party” meets “chill vibes.” We wanted our wed­ding to be an amaz­ing time for our guests above all else. When it came to book­ing the venue, it seemed like we went to ev­ery pos­si­ble place in Toronto— it took for­ever. But when we stum­bled across the Kor­tright Cen­tre, it just made sense. I’d ac­tu­ally been there as a child, and we both loved how it was a mod­ern build­ing nes­tled in the woods. Even though we didn’t get mar­ried in the woods as orig­i­nally planned be­cause it rained, the views from in­side were in­cred­i­ble and it felt like we were out­side the whole time. One of the best mo­ments of the evening was hav­ing our friends sing “Marry You” by Bruno Mars at the end of the cer­e­mony as we walked up the aisle. It was a sur­prise for our guests and such a joy-filled way to cel­e­brate fi­nally be­ing mar­ried. We’re very much into late-night karaoke— Bruno Mars is one of José’s favourite singers to take on— so this felt like an in­ti­mate, fun mo­ment shared with ev­ery­one at the wed­ding. For our sweets, we in­cor­po­rated a dough­nut wed­ding cake, made by the Mid­night Snack Co. We had a tower of dough­nuts as our offi cial cake fl anked by two cro­quem­bouche- style dough­nut-hole cones. To cap off the evening, we had a bon­fire out­side with s’mores as part of our late-night snacks.
