A Whimsical Autumn Wedding at Ontario Place


A “room with a view” of the Toronto skyline across Lake Ontario convinced these urbanites to hold their autumn wedding at Ontario Place. “It was somewhere I’d been many times in my childhood, and where Jacob and I had spent time during the summers as well,” Stephanie disclosed. The wedding was the night before Halloween so Stephanie chose an “autumn in the city” theme, with confetti leaves scattered on the tables, a forest-themed cake topper, mini pumpkins and burlap accents. “Since we were having an indoor wedding I did want to bring some of nature in, to bring a bit of warmth and colour to the space,” she says. “We are both city people at heart, so it was a way to bring in some outdoor influence.”
