Florals, florals, florals! Pastel florals were the name of the game at Maria and Alexandr's stunning Russian wedding. Pink, lavender, and ivory flowers were used to create the most romantic floral escape. Our favourite feature of the wedding was the floral wall that extended onto the ceiling, creating a lush canopy above the head table. Who needs anything else when you're surrounded by this much beauty?
In this Venue Spotlight, we're recapping some of our favourite weddings held at Oliver & Bonacini Events and Catering's gorgeous Toronto venues. From the rustic Auberge du Pommier and the contemporary Malaparte to the glamour of The Carlu and the grandeur of the Arcadian, each event space offers a unique experience for brides and grooms on their special day. See for yourself how O&B's stunning venues and gourmet catering come to life!
Joella and Jason were married in a modern “winter meets spring” wedding at The Carlu. Their reception included a magnificent, showstopping draped ceiling with soft, twinkling lights. Romance was truly in the air for this celebration!
Lindsay and Chris said “I do” at the Malaparte, an Oliver & Bonacini event space located in the heart of Toronto's Entertainment District. The elegant flower arrangements had guests swooning and consisted of ivory hydrangea and roses in shades of peach, pink, and light purple. The floor-to-ceiling windows, crisp white linens, and floral-filled tablescapes made for one unforgettable day.
Alicia and Joshua's wedding day was nothing short of perfect. Their opulent reception was held at the Arcadian Court and was filled with gold accents, cream and blush linens, and sculpted floral arrangements.
Inspired by the Russian film Doctor Zhivago, this Glitterati Style File is the epitome of rustic luxury. Shot inside O&B's sophisticated French restaurant, Auberge du Pommier, this warm and elegant styled shoot featured a mixture of white and green florals, cozy wooden accents, flickering white candles, and of course, gourmet appetizers prepared by Oliver & Bonacini Events and Catering.
Alana and Andrew, the latter of whom happens to be the president of Oliver & Bonacini, said "I do" in a sleek city soirée designed to celebrate the couple’s true romance. The intimate celebration took place at Arcadian Loft and unsurprisingly featured amazing food. A dozen different varieties of canapés were served during the cocktail hour and dinner entrées ranged from a hearty grilled rib eye to a broiled sustainable sea bass and lobster bisque.

Who loves a lush green statement wall? We do! Julie and Andre tied the knot in a modern garden setting filled with graphic accents designed by the bride. That's right, Julie designed all artwork, including the beautifully-sleek navy and gold invitation suite below. Oh, and did we mention the lavish dessert table? Fair warning, you may not want to be scrolling through this post on an empty stomach...
