Crafting a beautiful memory, one to withstand the test of time, is one of the most inspiring goals one could pursue. And in our lives, we craft these memories with our loved ones, family and friends, through hallmark occasions in our lives. These timeless memories altogether shape to form a beautiful story, your story. And for us here at Rainbow Chan Weddings, one of the top wedding planners and coordinators in Toronto, helping to tell your story in the most brilliant and beautiful way is what we do. Through planning and coordinating an unforgettable wedding day, our planners and coordinators play their own parts in creating a beautiful memory to last a lifetime. Such is how it went for us in our work with Elsa & Kyle, a lovely young Chinese couple who held their wedding day last August 6th, 2017 in a breathtaking wedding ceremony held at the Markham Chinese Baptist Church, and an unforgettable reception and celebration held at Toronto’s own One King West Hotel, at the hotel’s famous Grand Banking Hall. A truly emotional wedding day from start to finish, the blessed day would pay multiple tributes to Elsa & Kyle’s shared Chinese heritage; and would fit beautifully in contrast with the gorgeous architecture of Toronto’s One King West Hotel. All in all, an absolute delight for our planners and coordinators to work with. So join us as we recall the many beautiful memories made on Elsa & Kyle’s blessed wedding day; from a brief review some of Elsa & Kyle’s truly unforgettable wedding day memories, a few words on Toronto’s famous One King West Hotel, and a review of our planners and coordinators’ design choices for Elsa & Kyle on their absolutely breathtaking wedding day.

Planning and coordinating Elsa & Kyle’s wedding day began on an immaculate summer morning, with our planners and coordinators arriving at Elsa & Kyle’s respective morning venues in preparation for the monumental occasion ahead. Co-coordinating with makeup artists and stylists helped make Elsa’s preparations perfect, and setting up the couple’s various wedding day décor and furnishings truly made Elsa & Kyle’s morning preparations for the big day complete. Between setting up the various venues, planning and coordinating the morning’s traditional Chinese tea ceremonies for both families with Elsa in a gorgeous traditional Chinese dress, to the always-exciting traditional Chinese wedding day door games to start off an exciting day, every memory shared with Elsa & Kyle in planning and coordinating the magical day was a blessing for our planners and coordinators. And through the sincere and heartfelt moments between Elsa & Kyle and their families and friends, the inspiring and elegant themes behind the wedding day, all the unforgettable scenes with bridesmaids and groomsmen, and the truly remarkable wedding ceremony held at the Markham Chinese Baptist Church. Every single part of planning and coordinating Elsa & Kyle’s special day was doubly special for our planners and coordinators, helping to create magical memories to last a lifetime.
For Elsa & Kyle’s choice of wedding day venue, our planners and coordinators alongside the bride and groom to be had chosen the always-impressive and all-time favourite of our planners and coordinators; One King West Hotel & Residence, a breathtaking modern urban venue situated at the heart of Toronto’s downtown core, and mere steps away from the CN Tower and Rogers Centre. Elsa & Kyle held their reception and celebration at the historic Grand Banking Hall, with a few stops at One King West’s distinctive Vault, an artefact of the building’s heritage status as one of Toronto’s first financial centres. With the Grand Banking Hall, Elsa & Kyle were greeted with an iconic site which was once the setting for the Toronto Dominion Bank. An impressive feat of architecture, featuring expansive columns and delicately designed windowpanes which surround and envelop the venue’s luxurious and antique interior. One King West has figured prominently with planners and coordinators all throughout Toronto, and it was an honour for our planners and coordinators to have worked again in such a breathtaking and monumental event space for such a lovely and wonderful couple.
And finally, a look back at our planners and coordinators’ stylistic choices for Elsa & Kyle’s unforgettable wedding day. Consulting Elsa & Kyle just months ahead of the blessed day, the couple had requested a theme that was classic and elegant. A reminder of when Kyle had proposed to Elsa, in a picturesque Paris vacation trip by the Eiffel Tower, the couple had chosen a theme that played on a classical and elegant look; historic and timeless, for which One King West would be a perfect fit for. Bringing to the fold Elsa & Kyle’s shared Chinese cultural heritage and the importance of family and tradition, Elsa & Kyle’s theme brought the old and new from various cultural sources and synthesized these threads into something elegant and unforgettable. Between the gorgeous traditional Chinese dress, the reflection of Chinese traditional themes throughout in both tea ceremonies and door games, and the impeccable architecture and style that could only be found in one of Toronto’s most historic event venues. Elsa & Kyle’s theme was an absolute treat to put together for our planners and coordinators, and judging from the newlywed couple’s absolutely ecstatic faces, our planners and coordinators consider it a job well done.
And so, we here at Rainbow Chan Weddings and Events, Toronto’s premier wedding planners and coordinators, had an absolutely unforgettable experience working with Elsa & Kyle on their truly beautiful wedding day. Our planners and coordinators were truly humbled to have played a part in crafting and creating the perfect wedding day setting for the perfect couple through years of expertise in planning and coordinating. And with all that said, we here at Rainbow Chan Weddings and Events would like to wish Elsa & Kyle nothing but the very best in their lives and future together, and hope that our work with them will always be a reminder of such a historic, beautiful, and unforgettable day.
