Toronto Planner Plan & Coordinate Intimate Chinese Wedding at Colette Grand Cafe

A dream come true for a truly loving couple is always been a source of inspiration and motivation for us here at Rainbow Chan Weddings and Events, one of the top wedding planners and coordinators in Toronto. Seeing a dream genuinely become a reality for two very deserving people on a truly magical day is everything which inspires our planners and coordinators, and what motivates us to give our all through every event we’re a part of. This was especially true for our work with Xiaoyi & Xiaobo, a very special couple for whom we had the utmost pleasure in working with on planning and coordinating their special day. Xiaoyi & Xiaobo held their wedding day just this previous autumn season on October 5th, 2017 in a gorgeous ceremony, reception and celebration held at the breathtaking Colette Grand Café on Wellington St. West in downtown Toronto. A classy ceremony and celebration which blends both the stylish and modern with the couple’s shared Chinese heritage, Xiaoyi & Xiaobo’s wedding day was an absolutely enchanting memory for our planners and coordinators, and was very special and intimate as a particularly small wedding with a list of only 23 guests. So join us as we recall the many special memories we’ve made with Xiaoyi & Xiaobo during their autumn season wedding day. With a review of Xiaoyi & Xiaobo’s excellent venue choice of the Colette Grand Café and a summary of our designer’s stylistic choices in planning and coordinating the blessed couple’s perfect wedding day experience.

Work on planning and coordinating Xiaoyi & Xiaobo’s unforgettable wedding day began on a bright and beautiful autumn morning, with our planners and coordinators arriving at the bride’s humble Toronto abode to assist in the hectic preparations for the momentous day ahead. Working with the florists, photographers and cinematographers, stylists and makeup artists, our planners and coordinators had all the bases covered in guaranteeing that Xiaoyi & Xiaobo’s wedding day would become an utmost beautiful occasion from beginning to end. Xiaoyi & Xiaobo had chosen to have an outdoor ceremony on an absolutely splendid autumn day, and to that effect, had decided on the Colette Grand Café pavilion for their ceremony stage. Bright, spacious, beautiful, and an absolute wonder to behold, and perfect for an exclusive and intimate wedding experience; from the first look to the walk down the aisle, nothing could’ve made Xiaoyi & Xiaobo’s special day any more beautiful. And indeed, with the bride and groom’s walk down the aisle complete, our planners and coordinators couldn’t help but feel happy for the newlyweds and sincerely grateful for such a splendid ceremony and celebration.

Now to the immaculately elegant venue choice of Toronto’s luxurious Colette Grand Café for Xiaoyi & Xiaobo’s wedding day. The Colette Grand Café, a magnificently polished and undeniably exquisite French bistro and café is situated comfortably at 550 Wellington St W, just a stone’s throw away from Toronto landmarks such as the Air Canada Centre and the entertainment district. Our planners and coordinators had convened with Xiaoyi & Xiaobo and decided on this particular venue, chosen for its luxurious ambiance and beautiful outdoor pavillion, which would serve as the centre stage for Xiaoyi & Xiaobo’s ceremony. Needless to say, the choice was a perfect fit. Giving a glance at our included photo-reel of Xiaoyi & Xiaobo’s wedding day, the entire atmosphere of the wedding ceremony and celebration was wonderfully complemented by the immaculately designed and decorated Colette Grand Café, and was sincerely special for our planners and coordinators. Indeed, the proverbial walk down the aisle down the bright and beautiful pavilion under natural daylight surrounded by the couple’s closest friends and family in an intimate and exclusive atmosphere would become a magical memory for Xiaoyi & Xiaobo.

And with that, onto our planners and coordinators’ style choices for Xiaoyi & Xiaobo. To complete the couple’s special wedding day palette, our planners and coordinators made it a goal to perfectly tailor to the tastes of the couple specifically; giving both bride and groom creative freedom to make their wedding day as beautiful as it could be. Employing an elegant colour palette of lily white and carnation pink for the bride, vibrant shades of green and peach pink through the bouquets, and the classic sharpness of jet black for the groom, our planners and coordinators had formed a style that’s both airy and light yet sharp and sophisticated. This was done through the use of greenery and bouquets all throughout the venue, ceremony and reception. Complemented with hues of navy blue provided by Colette Grand Café’s interior, the mingling of these colours created a truly remarkable atmosphere for Xiaoyi & Xiaobo’s ceremony and celebration. Xiaoyi’s deep red dress for the photoshoots as well gives an ode to the couple’s shared Chinese heritage. Altogether, with an ensemble of aesthetic choices by our planners and coordinators, from floral furnishings to wedding day accessories and memorabilia strewn about, Xiaoyi & Xiaobo’s wedding day was set to an absolutely beautiful atmosphere that made every second of the couple’s special day one to last a lifetime.
