REBECCA & IAN | Toronto Mildred's Temple Kitchen Wedding
Rebecca and Ian met at the University of Waterloo during a night class together. Ian sat beside Rebecca and the love grew from. It is something about school that brings two people together and making their love story the ever more sweet! After graduation, they moved back to Toronto and their relationship grew stronger than ever! It was during a trip to Europe, while they had a layover at New York and Ian got down on one knee to ask Rebecca the question! This made their trip so much more memorable! Rebecca's family is from Taiwan and while visiting her family, they decided to do some pre-wedding photos at the local studio. Some of these portraits were shared on their wedding day.
Hotel X Toronto opened just a few weeks before their wedding and they made reservations to have a room for preparations to be done there. We may have been the very first to have wedding photos there! :D You can see what a gorgeous view they had that morning! In front of the windows, we had some portraits of Rebecca in her stunning dress! Isn't she just so gorgeous? Rebecca's father help covered the veil over her as a symbolism to send his daughter off. That moment shared was so sweet and intimate between a father and daughter on this special day. The sweet sister of Rebecca's presented a gift to her and wished her with much blessings to the start of her marriage! Rebecca's sister also bought a bottle of Moet champagne to celebrate with the newly weds alongside their parents!
Rebecca and Ian participated in the Chinese Tea Ceremony at the hotel, as a form of respect to their parents. It was a heartfelt moment where Rebecca's mom teared a little while blessing the couple and said to Ian "Take care of my little girl". Later Rebecca and Ian fed each other boiled eggs; and that day we learned that eggs symbolize fertility in some Chinese culture.
Mildred's Temple Kitchen was such a beautiful venue for Rebecca and Ian's wedding and the decorations that they chose added a great touch to it. Their wedding was focused more on spending time with people and less on themselves. They went around to everyone at the table, whether individually or together, to spend some time with their guests in engaged conversations, laughters, and even selfies throughout the night! Everyone surrounded the couple on the dance floor for their first dance, followed by a Father-Daughter dance, Mother-Son dance and finally the dance floor opened! Music by DJ Rich moved everyone on the dance floor even the bride and groom showed off some dance moves too! Rebecca and Ian are very considerate of others; ensuring that their guests are having a good time by keeping them accompanied. You can tell that their guests enjoyed and had a great time celebrating their wedding! Thank you Rebecca and Ian for having us capture this special day for you! <3
