The Couple: Elaine and Tong

Elaine and Tong’s paths crossed in September 2016, thanks to mutual friends who introduced them at a gala dinner. The spark between them blossomed quickly, leading to a beautiful moment a year later when Tong orchestrated a surprise proposal for Elaine at Bisha Hotel Toronto. The evening was nothing short of magical, with a live band serenading them, exquisite flowers adorning the space, and a photographer discreetly capturing the moment Elaine said “yes” amid smiles and tears of joy. The engagement ring, aptly dubbed “the one” by Harry Winston, had its own journey before adorning Elaine’s finger. While in Toronto, Tong placed an online order for the ring from New York. With a blend of anticipation and secrecy, he arranged for the ring to be shipped to a friend’s residence, ensuring its safe arrival for the day he planned to propose.

Elaine and Tong were married at Toronto’s Granite Club. The bride turned to her long-time friends at Fleur Weddings and Events to plan and design her wedding, with Erin Zhang as the lead event planner and Flora Peng as the wedding’s overall designer and creative director.

Floral design was provided by the team at Infinitude Design under Flora’s leadership as the owner of both companies.

 

Elaine wore a gown by Julie Vino for the ceremony, while Tong wore a tuxedo by Giorgio Armani from Harry Rosen.

 


The Ceremony

Flora Peng from Fleur Weddings and Events expertly curated a luxurious and elegant event with unique design elements guided by the theme of “Timeless Elegance with a Twist. . .” The event featured a ceremony and reception framed by two large semi-circular structures (12ft tall, 20ft wide) with a modern gold and copper pattern, mirrored on the white floor for a 3D effect.

As the ceremony began, dry ice created a mystical smoke effect.

The most abstract and unique element of the event’s design came from the swirling floral towers flanking the stage. “They were a touch of the avant-garde, juxtaposing the classic roses and lilies with a daring structural element that stood tall and grand against the towering white walls of the club,” shares event planner Erin Zhang.


The Cocktail Hour

The couple loves music, so a Jazz trio played during cocktail hour. To further entertain guests, experiences included an interactive corsage and boutonniere bar. A painter from China drew each family’s portrait and placed it onto a glass wall to use as the seating plan. “We had also prepared a photo frame to put the painting in to let guests take home as their wedding favors,” shares event planner Erin Zhang. “We also didn’t want the couple to return home with empty hands! So we printed another set, put them on guest tables, and asked guests to leave their best wishes on their paintings. This made it an unforgettable and extraordinary gift for the couple.”


The Reception

Several of the couple’s friends performed during dinner, including a violin and piano performance. The MC also led several fun games, and all enjoyed a same-day edit shown by the videography team.

The music-loving couple also hired a four-piece band for their after-party. “We set up the band behind the draping on the big stage, and when the drapes started to open slowly, and the band dropped the first beat, everyone was surprised and started dancing!” shares event planner Erin Zhang. “It was a very memorable moment for everyone!”
