The WedLuxe Show 2017 took place on January 15, 2017 at The Carlu, in Toronto, ON. One hundred of Toronto’s most talented and elite wedding professionals were in attendance, not to mention thousands of guests looking for major luxury wedding inspo! “World of Wanderlust” was our show theme and guiding inspiration as WedLuxe became your ultimate host.

The show was produced by Angela Desveaux, founder of WedLuxe, presented by Oliver & Bonacini Events and Catering, and sponsored by Kleinfeld Hudson’s Bay and Tempur-Pedic.

Marta Urbanowicz of Artam Design Inc. joined the show as Event Design Director, with Kim Miyama of Kim Miyama Events as Event Logistics Planning Partner. FireDog Creative was our Live Event Support Sponsor, Contemporary Furniture Rentals Inc. our official Show Furniture Supplier, and Eventure Custom Environments and Event Draping our Event Draping Partner.

The day's events began at the WedLuxe Lobby of Luxury where guests checked in at the "Front Desk" and received their wristband and show programme. Intricate tile patterns and gold-painted tropical-inspired greenery accented this space. Stepping out of the elevator onto the 7th floor, guests were wowed by our Grand Entry, The Palm. Created by Marta Urbanowicz of Artam Design Inc., the custom-built walls of the space featured luxurious white moulding, a faux marble floor, and gold-ribbon chandeliers - all punctuated with modern green hedging, gilded foliage, and leafy palm fronds that conjured vibes of modern Palm Beach luxury.
