According to planner Rebecca Chan, "Our stylish couple dreamed of a modern interpretation of an indoor garden, and that's exactly what they got!” Black and white decor juxtaposed with fresh greenery created a contemporary yet natural feel for the ultimate garden soirée.

John and Joseph were married in an incredible rooftop ceremony filled with sleek black and white accents at Toronto’s Malaparte. Guests then made their way indoors to find an abundance of fresh green florals, flickering votives, and gourmet food from Oliver & Bonacini Events and Catering.

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.

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.

Melissa and Joey’s Toronto wedding was inspired by romantic Italian elegance and a “Chandelier Garden” vision was developed and executed specifically for the couple. Mixed metals (specifically rose gold) provided a touch of opulence to the table settings and reception decor. It was the mesmerizing ceiling covered entirely by lush greenery, hanging amaranthus, strands of orchids, clematis, and ivy, that transformed the space into a glam, yet intimate forest-like oasis. You can read more about this couple's day in the current issue of WedLuxe Magazine (Toronto & Eastern Canada edition) on stands now.

Foodies, this wedding is for you! Today, we’re sharing the STUNNING downtown Toronto “I Do’s” of Oliver & Bonacini's President Andrew Oliver to Alana MacDonald. The wedding was a sleek city soirée designed to celebrate the couple’s true romance with a masterful culinary celebration worthy of the famed O&B brand.

Natalie Ho of Oliver & Bonacini Events and Catering provided full-service planning for the celebration that took place at Arcadian Loft last fall. Andrew and Alana worked closely with Natalie to produce a grand-scale event that still felt intimate and party-like. “It was important to us that our celebration included an incredible meal, really great music, and a gorgeous, candlelit setting. We wanted everyone, not just us, to have the time of their lives,” says Alana.

Amazing food was unsurprisingly a major component of the event! The couple worked closely with Executive Chef Jamie Meireles and Chef de Cuisine Michael Robertson of Oliver & Bonacini Events and Catering to create memorable food experiences that would wow guests throughout the evening. A dozen different varieties of canapés were served during cocktail hour, and dinner entrées ranged from a hearty grilled rib eye & slow roasted cap to a lighter fare of broiled sustainable sea bass & lobster bisque.

You can read all about the wedding, captured by a team of four photographers, in the new Summer/Fall 2015 issue of WedLuxe Magazine and see the celebration come to life in the beautiful video from James Frodyma Wedding Films at the end of the post.
