Modern Art Deco – Wedding Style Shoot at The Toronto Thompson Hotel

In this current age of hyper-modernism and ever changing culture and fashion, it’s a rather special novelty to revisit and reimagine the great cultural trends which helped shape and forge the eclectic world we live in. And as a connoisseur of delectable designs, wedding planner and coordinator Rainbow Chan, among the best in Toronto wedding planners, had the opportune chance to reconnect with one of the great futurist art movements of the previous century in a truly special wedding day style shoot taken at Toronto’s ever luxurious Thompson Hotel at the heart of Toronto’s entertainment district. ‘Art Deco’, what its contemporaries during its boom in the 20’s and 30’s saw as a turn towards a modernist outlook within the realms of art, architecture, fashion and culture, would shape the preceding decades and indeed the modern age immensely. Synthesizing both the abstract and concrete, Rainbow Chan’s style shoot, “Modern Art Deco”, aimed to fully embody the modernist style of the Art Deco movement – all rather cleverly within a modern context. A true juxtaposition of the past’s future envisioned in the present. So join us as we take a look at Toronto wedding planner Rainbow Chan’s magnificently modern wedding day style shoot, “Modern Art Deco” and learn a bit more about what it takes to make an ultra-chic aesthetic shine.

Employing a black and white palette to establish an art deco inspired modernist style whilst embedding bits of bright yellow and gold accents to convey a rich and luxurious aura, “Modern Art Deco” is an emblematic homage to one of the most influential art styles of the modern age. To embellish the style shoot and create something complete, Toronto wedding planner Rainbow Chan had cleverly chosen several stylistic elements to bring the whole scenery together. From an impressively exquisite stationary set that follows the geometric backdrop and theme of sharp edges and planar shapes, to the specially selected stiletto shoes crafted by luxury designer Rene Caovilla, to the choice of a beautiful low-cut white wedding gown care of celebrated fashion designer Vera Wang. These emblems of luxury and high-fashion all tie in to the “roaring twenties” aesthete, all made in the modern age in the heart of Toronto’s ultra-urban atmosphere; a true blend of the past and the present.

True to the spirit of art deco, of futurism and modernism made chic, the choice of the Thompson Hotel at the heart of Toronto’s entertainment district was a perfect match. And from the big to the small, Rainbow Chan’s choices in stationary elements and decoration for the style shoot were exemplary in highlighting the art deco theme. From wedding invitational sets and place cards patterned to match geometric shapes embellished with black, white and gold. Altogether creating an unforgettable scene borrowing from one of the most beautiful, elegant and austere styles to grace the history of western art and architecture.

And to top it all off, nothing could made the style shoot any more perfect than the sheer experience of working alongside the many contributors, vendors, photographers and film-makers all from around Toronto and beyond to turn an artistic inspiration into a gorgeous finished work. We hope that the “Modern Art Deco” style shoot care of Toronto wedding planner Rainbow Chan is just as inspiring to behold for you as it was for us to create it.
