A loving couple and a dream come true has always been a point of inspiration for us here at Rainbow Chan Weddings and Events, one of the top wedding planners and coordinators in Toronto. And nothing can be more inspiring for planners and coordinators of weddings all throughout the year than such a dream fulfilled, a match made complete and two lives turned one. Especially for a truly special couple like Cecilia & Raymond, with whom we had the utmost pleasure in working with on planning and coordinating their most memorable of days. Cecilia & Raymond’s wedding day, just this previous fall, on November 12th, 2016, with a lovely ceremony taking place at the Richmond Hill Christian Community Church, a scenic snapshot tour at the Markham Museum and Historic Village, and a roaring celebration held at the ever elegant Hilton Toronto-Markham Suites Conference Centre & Spa. A pair of young go-getters themselves, Raymond had proposed to Cecilia whilst on a trip to Europe. Though under the auspices of old Europe’s romantic scenery, Cecilia & Raymond knew that home is where the heart is; and no place better to hold your unforgettable wedding day than in the comfort of their hometown, Markham, just a stone’s throw away from Toronto. So join us as we recall some of our most prized memories in planning and coordinating Cecilia & Raymond’s truly special wedding day, along with a brief review of what made Cecilia & Raymond’s choice of venues absolutely magnificient; from the Markham Museum to the Hilton Suites. And finally, a summary of our very own stylistic choices which help made Cecilia & Raymond’s wedding ceremony, reception and celebration ever-the-more magical.

Planning and coordinating Cecilia & Raymond’s wedding day began on a beautiful autumn morning, with our planners and coordinators arriving at the Hilton Toronto-Markham Suites Conference Centre to set up the floral display, décor and all the aesthetic arrangements to add our own special touch of planning and coordinating, making Cecilia & Raymond’s special day all-the-more beautiful. Between the morning setup for bride and groom to be; meeting with parents, the tea ceremony, traditional Chinese door games, and the whirlwind of emotions from ceremony to celebration, every moment combined made planning and coordinating Cecilia & Raymond’s wedding day all the more worth it. And for what would be quite a surprisingly bright November wedding day, nothing could warm up our moods more than the loving tenderness and sincere happiness that Cecilia & Raymond shared with all of us on their most special day. Indeed, planning and coordinating the morning’s ceremonies, the photo-shoot session, ceremony and celebration all with a touch of our added adornments, truly completed the experience for us; and hopefully made Cecilia & Raymond’s wedding day ever-more complete for the special couple.

For Cecilia & Raymond’s choices in wedding day stops, the beloved couple truly abided by the saying that “home is where the heart is”, choosing their wedding day destinations to fit a Markham motif. A very special choice that made for a truly spectacular photo-shoot session was a tour of the Markham Museum and Historic Village. Bringing Markham’s past to the forefront of the present, to bring a blessing to Cecilia & Raymond’s future; a truly romantic sentiment to say the least. And for the reception and celebration to close the evening, Cecilia & Raymond’s choice of the Hilton Toronto-Markham Suites Conference Centre & Spa was stellar. A beautifully spacious ballroom, for our planners and coordinators, would be a perfectly clean palette to craft and create something majestic for the couple on their most memorable of days.

And on that note, onto our style choices for Cecilia & Raymond’s wedding day. For the couple’s special wedding day palette, our planners and coordinators had aimed to fit the taste of the pair specifically – to symbolize the union of both in a surprisingly elegant theme that permeated and shaped the style and mood of the wedding day. From the coupling of Cecilia’s favourite colour, carnation pink, and Raymond’s, an ashen earthen grey, we formed a style that’s both soft and austere; a blending of both sensibilities – of serenity and solidarity. We accomplished this through the liberal use of bouquets of various hues of pink and vanilla white, with silver accents brought through the choice of cloths for the dining tables and seating arrangements. All unified under candlelight and molded by gorgeous ambient lighting; giving Cecilia & Raymond’s dream wedding a dream-like aesthetic, making for an unforgettable stage for the newlyweds to serenade the evening hours away.

Altogether, we here at Rainbow Chan Weddings and Events, Toronto’s premier wedding planners and coordinators, had a truly wondrous time working with Cecilia & Raymond on their wedding day. We are truly honoured to have taken part in planning and coordinating such a spectacular day for such a spectacular pair. In the end, we wish Cecilia & Raymond all the best in their newfound lives together in marriage, and hope that our contribution to making their wedding day as magnificent as it could be continues to animate and inspire the couple all throughout their lives.

For Rainbow Chan Weddings and Events, being one of the top wedding planners and wedding coordinators in Toronto carries with it many satisfying perks. And among all of them, nothing is more satisfying than a job well done at the end of the day. For Rainbow Chan and her team, that would be a happily wedded couple at the end of what has been one of the most magical days of their lives; due in no-small-part to the talent and hard-work by the cast-and-crew that help make these magical moments possible. Seeing the progress for a planner in planning and coordinating a wedding day from start to finish and pulling off every little miracle possible to make the magic happen is one of the most awe-inspiring aspects of being a planner and coordinator of a wedding day ceremony and celebration. So for us here at Rainbow Chan Weddings and Events, working with Ekaterina & Jesus on their ever-beloved wedding day just this past May 26th, 2017 with a ceremony and celebration at Toronto’s chic and ultra-modern Malaparte event space care-of Oliver & Bonacini Events, was all part-and-parcel of playing a role in making dream-like wedding days come true for couples all throughout Toronto and the GTA. So join us as we recall just some of our favorite parts of working with Ekaterina & Jesus on their most special of days, an overview of the spectacular venue, and our very own stylistic choices that help made Ekaterina & Jesus’ wedding day one for the ages.

From a wedding planner and coordinator’s perspective, Ekaterina & Jesus’ wedding day was quite a hectic one; with all the excitement and liveliness one should expect out of such an enormously important day. From our arrival at the bride-to-be’s pre-ceremony setup in the morning to the early hours of the following day, every moment of planning and coordinating was special for us. In particular, for a wedding planner and coordinator, we were very lucky with the weather! For a spring day in Toronto, not a drop of rain and plenty of clear skies for a perfect wedding day. For the morning’s preparations and entourage scenes, we made sure to include both greyscale and full colour shots to emphasize the sentimentality of the morning mood. Among our favorite scenes were – of course – the first look, which took place at the historic Osgoode Hall at the heart of downtown Toronto, the assorted scenes with the bridesmaids and groomsmen around Toronto’s University Avenue, many beautiful pictures of the ceremony and celebration at the modern and upscale Malaparte event space, and most spectacularly, the unforgettably romantic scene of the couple’s first dance at the end of the evening. Taking place atop Malaparte’s rooftop patio terrace with the entire cast and crew of Ekaterina & Jesus’ special guests cheering the newlyweds on with bright sparklers as the couple danced to all their heart’s content as the night hours grew long and their magical wedding day would come to a truly magnificent ending.

A few words about Ekaterina & Jesus’ choice venue; one of our favorites thus far. That would be Oliver & Bonacini’s Malaparte event space in beautiful downtown Toronto. And with such an opportune location for our planners and coordinators, the Malaparte truly makes-do with what it’s worth by capitalizing on the gorgeous terraced views it has at the heart of Toronto’s cityscape overlooking King Street West, and right under the auspices of the ever-iconic CN Tower. Malaparte offered Ekaterina & Jesus’ wedding ceremony and celebration a truly modern, chic and lively cityscape vibe, which, from a planner and coordinator’s perspective, made for incredibly magical moments like the evening rooftop first-dance possible; and fit perfectly with our couple’s wishes for their wedding day to have a vibrant, modern and chic setting.

On to our style choices for Ekaterina & Jesus’ wedding day. Rainbow and her team’s overall stylistic choice for the couple centred on the trendy design style of 2017; greenery in a modern landscape. Our work focused on the playful interaction between shades of pale white and differing types of green; all in all a clean colour palette contrasted with greenery throughout, accentuating the motif of being chic, trendy and fashionable. With use of lily white floral furnishings and bouquets that adopted light colour combinations, we kept the overall colour palette splendidly clean and spotlessly bright altogether. Bridesmaids and groomsmen played a part in the palette creation as well, with shades of aquamarine and light green reflected in their wardrobe choices. The natural contrast between our chosen light colours and the fullness of bright and dark colour sources provided by the imposing thematic of the downtown Toronto cityscape made for a brilliant stylistic combination care-of our planners and coordinators; again capitalizing on the perfect venue location using the skyline for the backdrop and the rooftop as a focal point of the event.

All in all, we here at Rainbow Chan Weddings and Events, Toronto’s premier wedding planners and coordinators, had a spectacular time working with Ekaterina & Jesus on their truly unforgettable wedding day. We were very glad to have had the creative opportunity to truly make a spectacular urban wedding theme with Ekaterina & Jesus, and we are exceedingly pleased with how our planners and coordinators’ design choices turned out and how much the beloved newlywed couple enjoyed the day and the fruits of our work. We wish the two a lifetime of happiness together, and hope that our work with them on their wedding day continues to inspire and amaze them all throughout the way.

Toronto Wedding Proposal Planner at Auberge Du Pommier

Surprise, surprise; everybody loves surprises. That’s why for us here at Rainbow Chan Wedding and Events, one of the top wedding planners and coordinators in Toronto, we’re always pleasantly surprised to witness all the surprising things that life and love brings forth to the couples we’ve met and worked with. Most impressively, our recent work with Oliver & Sharon on planning and coordinating their surprise wedding proposal just this past June 17th, 2017 at Toronto’s exquisite Auberge Du Pommier restaurant and outdoor patio made for a truly surprising, suspenseful and scintillating experience! Oliver & Sharon, a young pair of professionals sharing an alma-mater at McMaster going on their 6th year anniversary together have decided to tie the knot, and it was a real pleasure for us at Rainbow Chan Weddings to have been front and centre at the second when all the pieces of Oliver & Sharon’s puzzle came to place. Awaiting for the moment of truth, a declaration of “yes!” from Oliver’s beloved Sharon would be the real surprise for our planners and coordinators, and the least we could do for Oliver & Sharon in return was to help beautify the beautiful surprise with careful crafting, planning and coordination, to truly wrap up a surprise gift in the most beautiful wrapping it could possibly have. So join us as we recall some of our favorite parts of working with Oliver & Sharon on their surprise wedding proposal, an overview of the ever-captivating Auberge Du Pommier, and a brief review of our always-unique and always surprising design choices for Oliver & Sharon’s wedding proposal celebration that truly gave the magical moment a surprising flair.

Our work with Oliver & Sharon began in the early evening, with our planners and coordinators setting up the décor and floral furnishings that would make Oliver & Sharon’s magical memory truly a magically memorable one. The interesting thing about planning and coordinating a surprise wedding proposal is that we could only rely on the proposer, Oliver, for the setup and preparations; so this was quite a surprise for us as well! All things went swimmingly however, after we’d wired up Oliver with a mic to capture the eternal words; “will you marry me?” Coordinating the moment of truth, right at sundown, was truly an experience to relive. With Oliver guiding his unbeknownst bride-to-be to the “Terrace du Fond” in Auberge Du Pommier’s lower terrace patio, a resounding answer of “yes!” would be the ever-captivating instance that made planning and coordinating Oliver & Sharon’s day truly worth it.

Onto the genuinely impressive venue choice of Toronto’s luxurious Auberge Du Pommier, a magnificently kept and remarkably sophisticated French restaurant just a stone’s throw away from the 401 on Yonge, at the heart of Toronto’s York Mills region. Our planners and coordinators had chosen Auberge Du Pommier for its breathtaking patio furnishings, elegant vibe and romantic atmosphere; and what a choice it would be! From a cursory glance of our attached photo-reel of Oliver & Sharon’s magical moment from start to end, the overall groove given by Auberge Du Pommier as a ‘secret garden’ in midst of midtown Toronto made for an altogether perfect setting for Oliver & Sharon. And with an impressive collection of wines and spirits, Oliver & Sharon kept their spirits high for a truly spirited event!

And finally, a look back at our style choices; what made our work with Oliver & Sharon on planning and coordinating their wedding proposal day worth every bit of effort and time, and what made a beautiful memory for a perfect couple truly shine. Our chosen design goal for Oliver & Sharon centred on sentimentality; a “trip down memory lane” that recalls the steps through which the couple arrived at this penultimate moment, with Oliver on bended knee and Sharon accepting the gift of a ring and a promised vow. Our setup revolved mainly with the “memory lane”, a path aligned by floating candles, thirty glass cylinders and miniature flower arrangements scattered about the sides of the pathway, and at the end, six garden poles which displayed specially selected pictures of Oliver & Sharon’s six year journey from friendship to family. Beside the Auberge Du Pommier’s outdoor patio fountain, a beautifully made “marry me” sign served as the event’s centerpiece. And finally, a gorgeously decorated dining table elegantly arranged with a light floral theme which echoes the miniature flower arrangements that guided the memory lane to the evening’s end.

In short, we here at Rainbow Chan Weddings and Events, Toronto’s premier wedding planners and coordinators, had a wonderful time working with Oliver & Sharon on their magnificent and magnanimous wedding proposal day. We were exceedingly happy to have had the chance to make Oliver & Sharon’s “memory lane” a reality, and we are truly touched that our work in planning and coordinating Oliver & Sharon’s wedding proposal day made for an unforgettably magical evening for the bride and groom to be. We wish the pair all the best, and can’t wait for when we see them on their wedding day!

A smile, a laugh, a sentimental moment, something to share with the generations to come. These among many special things is what makes our work here at Rainbow Chan Weddings and Events, one of the top wedding planners and coordinators in Toronto, such an inspiring and motivating factor for our planners and coordinators every day. And no wedding could be more inspirational for our planners and coordinators than our recent work with Helen & Nelson on their wondrous wedding ceremony and celebration just this previous May 21st, 2016 with morning setup and cultural ceremonies held at Toronto’s Delta Hotels, a scenic photoshoot session held at Scarborough’s Guildwood Park, and the grand ceremony and celebration set at Scarborough’s historic Guild Inn Estate just by Guildwood Park and steps away from Toronto’s lakeshore. A truly jovial couple with genuinely infectious smiles, Helen & Nelson couldn’t help but radiate all throughout their special day together, which made for a perfect opportunity for planning and coordinating the perfect wedding day celebration for such a magnetic and magnanimous couple. Between the morning’s setup, to the couple’s traditional Chinese tea ceremony with family and friends, to an emotional first look which would culminate to an astounding ceremony and celebration to close the evening, Helen & Nelson’s wedding day was a picturebook scene from start to finish, and was a delight for our planners and coordinators to work on. So join us as we recall some our most treasured memories of planning and coordinating Helen & Nelson’s wonderful wedding day, an overview of the couple’s excellent wedding day venue choices, and a brief review of our planners and coordinators’ very own stylistic and design choices which made Helen & Nelson’s wedding day one full of smiles, laughs and sentimental moments from beginning to end.

Our work in planning and coordinating Helen & Nelson’s wedding day began on a gorgeous spring morning at the Delta Hotels Toronto with our planners and coordinators setting up the floral furnishings and assorted decor for Helen & Nelson’s big day. Between the morning’s preparations, to the traditional Chinese tea ceremony shared with family and friends alike, to the ceremony and celebration to complete Helen & Nelson’s wedding day, every single second was special for us – as realized opportunities to make the couple smile from ear to ear on such a sentimental and significant occasion in their lives. Planning and coordinating the wedding day themes and styles, especially that of the morning’s cultural ceremonies, was a big part for us; choosing the perfect palette to compliment the couple on their most special of days. Indeed, one of the most memorable parts for our planners and coordinators was seeing the door games and tea ceremony unfold to a joyous communal and cultural celebration of Helen & Nelson’s love for each other, and the couple’s family and friends partaking in such joyfulness with their own smiles and laughter, sharing the good vibes all throughout.

For Helen & Nelson’s choices of wedding day destinations; the Delta Hotel in Scarborough is always a welcome venue for our planners and coordinators for morning preparations and ceremonies. The couple’s choice of the Guildwood Park for mid-day wedding snapshots was a perfect spring season choice, as a special wedding day snapshot of Helen & Nelson sharing a kiss under an umbrella was a heartwarming scene on a windy spring day. And for the historic Guild Inn Estate, a beautiful two-story residence in the Guildwood neighborhood of southern Scarborough, now part of the Greater Toronto Area, our planners and coordinators were pleasantly surprised at how spacious and picturesque the venue and associated estate would be. With an open-concept ceremony and reception hall overlooking a gorgeous view of the estate’s courtyard, shimmering chandeliers and a spacious ballroom setup which would be the centre stage of the couple’s first dance, an impressive tango ending with the newlyweds sharing a kiss to the applause of the crowd. All in all, an altogether remarkable wedding day venue for our planners and coordinators that served as a historic backdrop to a historic day in Helen & Nelson’s lives together.

And finally, a look back at our stylistic and design choices that made working with Helen & Nelson on their unforgettable wedding day worth every moment spent, and what made the couple’s most significant and sentimental day all-the-more special and beautiful. What our planners and coordinators had aimed for with Helen & Nelson was a blending of the chic and modern with the cultural and traditional; reflecting Helen & Nelson’s shared Chinese heritage, we had the couple in traditional attire for both the morning’s ceremonies and the unforgettable ballroom dance and evening celebrations, with Helen’s shimmering red and gold Qipao as a centrepiece to the wedding celebration. Floral bouquets of lily white, carnation pink and subdued violet shades made for a soft and airy palette to match the bridesmaid dresses, and the prominence of greenery – of leafy green arcs and tabletop ornaments juxtaposed with the silver and light gray theme surrounding them made for a curiously comforting and altogether satisfying thematic palette for Helen & Nelson’s reception. And with an evening which included a traditional Chinese lion dance performance, our planners and coordinators couldn’t help but be satisfied at this perfect blend of East and West.

A sentimental story of true love through the ages has always been a source of inspiration for us here at Rainbow Chan Weddings and Events, one of the top wedding planners and coordinators in Toronto. The story of Vicky & Edwin is one such story which we are most grateful to have been a part of. Between the sentimental stories shared to our planners and coordinators that showcase blossoming relationships culminating in wondrous wedding days, and the unforgettable experience for our planners and coordinators of playing a first-hand part in crafting the look-and-feel of a couple’s wedding day; the beautiful entirety of the experience is what keeps us truly inspired through the years. And for Vicky & Edwin, working on planning and coordinating their wonderful wedding day just this past May 28th, 2017 with a ceremony and celebration at one of our most favorite locations, The Doctor’s House in Kleinburg, was very much like immersing ourselves in a love story made complete. So join us as we recall some of our fondest memories working with Vicky & Edwin in planning and coordinating their unforgettable wedding day, an overview of one of our most well-loved venues, and an overview of our very own design choices and style selections that truly made Vicky & Edwin’s wedding day a storybook event from start to finish.

Our work with Vicky & Edwin began in the early hours of a gorgeous spring morning, with our planners and coordinators setting up the floral display, décor and assorted stylistic elements to make Vicky & Edwin’s beautiful wedding day ever-the-more beautiful. From the bride’s preparations, to the meet-and-greet and traditional Chinese tea ceremony with family members, to the penultimate walk down the aisle, every moment of the wedding day carried with it deep sentimental significance; which made planning and coordinating all the more important for us. And being blessed with a spotless spring sky, Vicky & Edwin’s wedding day couldn’t have gone more perfectly. Sharing with us some of our favorite scenes from the wedding day, the first-look, bride’s fitting, and the celebration to end the evening, we couldn’t be happier with our work with Vicky & Edwin. And as pictures say a thousand words, feel free to view some of our most prized snapshots from the wedding day.

A few words about Vicky & Edwin’s wonderful venue choice, and one of our most favoured wedding day locations; The Doctor’s House in Kleinburg, just north of Vaughan and a stone’s throw away from Toronto. Nestled in a comfy hamlet along Ontario’s pristine countryside in the heart of Kleinburg village, The Doctor’s House is an enchanting rural getaway that’s an absolute perfect choice for a picturesque wedding day. So it was truly a treat for our wedding planners and coordinators to work in the historic residence, which dates itself all the way back to 1867, for what would be a little slice of Vicky & Edwin’s life together. Named after the fact that the house had been residence for a series of community doctors, what we found there was the highest level of hospitality one could find in a wedding day venue. And what truly impressed our planners and coordinators about this altogether-impressive venue choice was how lovingly the estate’s historic architecture blended splendidly with the Vicky & Edwin’s wedding theme. The rustic style in a quiet and subdued location, nothing can be more storybook than that.

And on to our planners and coordinators’ stylistic and design choices for Vicky & Edwin’s wedding day. Altogether, our aim was directed by the beauty and simplicity of an au-naturel theme; harkening the soft sentimentality of a private and intimate gathering of closest family and friends. The delicate blending of natural themes with the softness of glass, linen and candlelight; done with centerpieces for each dining set adorned with an impressive artistic display fusing greenery and iron-working. Truly a heartwarming and intimate space made complete by the laughter and enjoyment experienced during the wedding’s celebrations, we leave several snapshots of the impressive setup to spell out the rest.

For us here at Rainbow Chan Weddings, one of Toronto’s top wedding planners and coordinators, living and working in Toronto is an everyday cornucopia of multicultural experiences. Between the vibrant exchange of different cultures and traditions, we witness day by day the essential human element in full bloom; living and loving through the ups and downs of life, from all walks of life. So for our wedding planners and coordinators, working with Tina & Shawn on their multicultural Vietnamese & Jewish wedding presented a perfect experience of the quintessential gift of what makes Toronto such a beautiful, diverse and vibrant city. Tina & Shawn held their multicultural matrimony this previous October 30th, 2016 in a beautiful autumn season wedding with ceremony and celebration taking place at Thornhill’s gorgeous Le Parc Banquet Hall, among our wedding planners and coordinators’ most favoured wedding day destinations. Planning and coordinating a multicultural wedding presents both an unforgettably novel experience and its own particular challenges. In particular, the challenge of how to present a genuine and equal portrayal of both (or many!) cultures in the form of design choices and theme. Suffice to say, for Tina (who is Vietnamese) and Shawn (who is Jewish), everything ended up going gevaldig (tremendously well)! So join us as we recall some of our favorite parts of planning and coordinating Tina & Shawn’s magnificent multicultural wedding, a brief overview of what we loved about Tina & Shawn’s choice of the always-charming Le Parc Banquet Hall, and a tour of our particular design and planning choices that made Tina & Shawn’s multicultural wedding ever-the-more memorable.

Planning and coordinating Tina & Shawn’s wedding day began on a brilliant autumn morning, with our planners and coordinators arriving at the Le Parc Banquet Hall to assist in setting up décor, floral arrangements and various stylistic elements to truly beautify what would be a truly beautiful day for Tina & Shawn. From the morning-of setting up session to the late-evening celebration, every second of planning and coordinating was made worth it in the end with a truly happy couple experiencing the best possible wedding day there could possibly be. For a particularly brisk October wedding day, the sentimental scenes and true loving chemistry between Tina & Shawn were enough to warm all our hearts. In sharing in a multicultural wedding day experience, the task for our planners and coordinators would be to bring a perfect fusion of Vietnamese & Jewish elements together, both cultural and ritual. And with planning and coordinating both Vietnamese tea ceremonies between both families and the Jewish ketubah ceremony underneath a beautifully crafted chuppah (wedding canopy), Tina & Shawn’s multicultural matrimony was a roaring success; with cheers of ‘mazel tov’ to welcome the beloved couple to a new and beautiful life together.

For the couple’s choice of wedding day venue, Thornhill’s Le Parc Banquet Hall made for an excellent selection on Tina & Shawn’s part. With a magnificently designed and beautifully bright atrium, Le Parc’s setup was perfect for Tina & Shawn’s ceremonial wedding canopy, with our planners and coordinators making prodigious use of natural lighting and ample greenery to create an impressive garden look for Tina & Shawn’s ceremonial stage. One part about working at Le Parc that stood out was their aim of having wedding ceremonies at their venue be completely custom-fitted to the couple’s liking, which was excellent for Tina & Shawn on their special multicultural wedding setup, and excellent for our planners and coordinators – giving us much needed creative freedom to craft something magnificent for the beloved couple on their wedding day. And with a convenient location just by highway #7 and the 404 along with a brilliantly spacious venue, Tina & Shawn’s wedding would be a “come one, come all” event for all guests, friends and family alike.

And finally, an overview of our stylistic choices for Tina & Shawn. The newlywed pair, being aficionados of all things between geek and chic, had requested for a special Doctor Who themed wedding setting. Hence, sharp suits, a dark palette blending deep shades of violent and indigo green, and a tinge of sci-fi inspiration sprinkled about. For Shawn, an impressively designed Doctor Who bowtie coupled with a velvet indigo waistcoat made the spouse look perfectly sharp for the occasion. And for the after-ceremony celebration at Le Parc’s dining hall, our planners and coordinators made sure to double-down on the pop-culture theme with assorted trinkets and centerpieces coming straight from vast imaginary worlds; from Disney to Studio Ghibli itself; a truly novel and charming design choice specially made for Tina & Shawn. Bringing the wondrous worlds of fantasy, sci-fi and our most memorable Disney favourites to the table, literally, for a wedding day that was out of this world.

The perfect wedding day memory is one that’s for the ages, lasts a lifetime, and always serves as an instrumental memory of a couple’s most intimate and significant of life moments. The perfect mood, perfect atmosphere, perfect schedule and perfect style and design all planned, coordinated and combined to create a perfect day for a perfect pair. That’s why for us here at Rainbow Chan Weddings and Events, one of the top wedding planners and coordinators in Toronto, sealing the deal by playing our part in creating the perfect wedding day memory is one of our grandest of goals on every project our planners and coordinators work on. That’s why our work with Irene & Ray on their unforgettable wedding day just last summer on June 4th, 2016 with an utterly breathtaking ceremony and celebration held at the remarkable Oakview Terrace Reception Centre in Richmond Hill, in a fantastically forested estate just a short trek north of Toronto. Irene & Ray, a pair of young professionals at the prime of their lives, opted for a fairly traditional wedding day setting; with some special touches care-of our planners and coordinators to truly beautify a beautiful day. So join us as we recall some of our own favorite memories from planning and coordinating Irene & Ray’s immaculate wedding day ceremony and celebration, an overview of the ever-charming choice of Oakview Terrace Reception Centre for a wedding day venue, and a tour of our particular planning, coordinating and design choices that guaranteed a flawlessly fashioned wedding space for Irene & Ray’s most memorable of days.

Planning and coordinating Irene & Ray’s wedding day began on a bright summer morning, at Irene & Ray’s respective homes, for the beginning of the preparations for both bride and groom; along with trips to the Oakview Terrace Reception Centre to set up the floral display, décor and the hodgepodge of stylistic and design choices specially tailored for Irene & Ray to make their wedding day truly shine. From the bride and groom’s morning prep, to the traditional Chinese wedding ceremonies of the always-hilarious wedding day door games and the subdued tea ceremony with family and friends alike, every second of Irene & Ray’s wedding day experience was a delight to play a part in, from planning and coordinating and every step in between. Seeing the joys of life play out perfectly from start to finish and knowing that our work had played a part in creating these memories makes every single second inspiring and captivating, and Irene & Ray’s wedding day is a perfect example of that. And with a brilliantly bright summer day, and an enchanting evening’s sky in Ontario’s cottage country, nothing could be better for our planners and coordinators. And as pictures say a thousand words, we share a few of our favorite scenes from our work; in particular, Irene & Ray’s scintillating kiss underneath the stars is enough to capture just how unforgettable and enchanting of a day this would be.

A few words about Irene & Ray’s excellent choice in a wedding day venue for both ceremony and celebration, and one of our choice venues for those looking for a comfortable, cozy and intimate space when planning and coordinating your wedding day; the Oakview Terrace Reception Centre in Richmond Hill. Nestled in a quiet corner of Richmond Hill’s northern countryside scenery, just overlooking the Diamond-Back Golf Club, Oakview Terrace offers a homely cottage experience just steps away from Toronto. What impressed our planners and coordinators was Oakview Terrace’s specially made rustic wooden chapel inspired by open-concept and traditional design, which made for a charming centre stage for Irene & Ray’s wedding ceremony. Another enchanting aspect of Oakview Terrace is its quiet location in a pristine part of Richmond Hill’s northern farmlands and cottage country. Overlooking a private lake and featuring a well-trimmed garden, the estate boasts many views to fall-in-love with, and truly what made our planners and coordinators fall in love with a very special wedding venue.

Now onto our planners and coordinators’ stylistic and design choices and artistic vision for Irene & Ray’s wedding day. Like a ‘ray’ of sunshine that beams through the clouds, and like how the wedding day had been blessed with a bright and spotless sunny day, Irene & Ray’s wedding day colour palette revolved around shades of golden and sunflower yellow all throughout. From the floral furnishings and centrepieces prepared by our planners and coordinators, to the dainty dresses specially made for the bridesmaids, and many décor elements in between, simple shades of brilliant yellow was our style choice. Yellow, an ever-radiant colour, matched well with Irene & Ray; and with its deeper counterpart of gold to accent and accompany it, the end result would be something spectacularly brilliant. With simple shades combined to bring something bright and brilliant, and an intimate wedding day setting to draw it all together, a truly special couple like Irene & Ray couldn’t ask for anything better.

And with one more perfect wedding day under our belt, we here at Rainbow Chan Weddings and Events, Toronto’s premier wedding planners and coordinators, would like to thank Irene & Ray for giving our planners and coordinators the opportunity to make their once-in-a-lifetime wedding day one for the ages, and to have our work truly shine through all throughout such a special day. We wish the newlyweds all the very best in their lives together, and hope that our work with them will always serve as an inspiration of just how possible it is to craft perfect memories and life events with a bit of love and care.
