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.

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.

Joella and Jason were married in a modern “Winter meets Spring” wedding at The Carlu, an Oliver & Bonacini Events and Catering property, with a decidedly fashion-forward spin. The couple’s ceremony was set up to mimic a runway show and they exchanged their vows beneath a dramatic 10-ft tall plexiglass chuppah, with lit pillar candles placed inside its roof, creating a glowing effect. A starry sky like reception followed, which included a magnificent, showstopping draped ceiling with soft, twinkling lights. Romance was truly in the air for this celebration!

Stephanie and Aaron were married in a greenery-filled ceremony that embraced organic design elements and brought the outdoor environment inside. The industrial space of their Distillery District venue was the perfect choice for the intimate wedding. Instead of traditional floral designs, the couple enlisted Rachel A. Clingen Wedding & Event Design to create three-dimensional garlands on the tables, a birch bark chuppah, and (our personal favourite) the bride’s incredible unstructured bohemian-style bouquet. Floral goals realized!

A lavender and ivory colour palette brought an element of fairytale-like romance to Nikoo and Ali’s elegant Toronto wedding. We were especially taken with the unique centrepieces that topped their reception dining tables. The tall, mirrored structures decorated with lit candles, foliage, and bunches of purple-hued blooms felt modern, but with a decidedly pastel, ethereal feel.
