When a global pandemic postponed their plans to say “I Do” on May 9th, 2020, the day that would mark their fifth anniversary of having met one another, Aida and Kian jumped at the opportunity to hold a micro wedding once BC gave them the green light later that summer. The couple held their natural, light, and airy ceremony and reception on August 22nd of 2020, but not without assistance from Soha Lavin and Jenny De Jong of CountDown Events Planning & Design Class, Distinction & Elegance.

“I’m glad we decided to go for a smaller wedding while we could. We had a perfect wedding. It was beautiful, magical and fun!” — Aida, Bride

Aida wore two stunning gowns. The first was custom designed by the bride with Alison Hartford of Manuel Mendoza Couture. Her veil, called “Snowflake,” is now something of a collector’s item because it was the last veil that Oscar de la Renta created before he passed away. Aida searched for it everywhere before the owner of White Toronto agreed to part with it.



The ceremony took place in the backyard, with the backdrop of the lagoon and forest framing the bride and groom. We especially selected the ceremony location with the overall feel of the wedding in mind. The ceremony was magical, from the bride’s entrance to the scene. You could hear the waterfall in the background, and the white florals and design of the Sofreh popped against the lush green forest and lake, which was the most beautiful backdrop.

Socially-distanced cocktail tables provided by Éclat Decor Inc. were assigned to small groups of guests with a corresponding number to their dinner table. For the reception, white oval Plexi tables from Éclat Decor Inc. were placed around the lawn with crystal candelabras, pastel blue candles, and gold framed table numbers.



Tala Florist alternated the tabletop designs with either a lush floral garland running from end to end or a statement candelabra with two smaller floral arrangements flanking the base. Personalized square menus in soft blush with dusty blue, frayed silk ribbon ties were added to each place setting.
