An Elegant Art Gallery Wedding in Hamilton, Ontario

A spectacular view of Hamilton’s famous waterfall, Devil’s Punch Bowl, set the mood for Alyssa and Steven’s engagement.  Their wedding was just as visually stunning, with a one-of -kind-reception at the Art Gallery of Hamilton. Alyssa made her arrival in a stylish vintage car alongside her father, and those special moments with him before the ceremony were some of her favourite during the day. In addition to the modern venue, Alyssa and Steven’s day was filled with elegant touches such as the gorgeous peony centerpieces, macaron treats, tables named after classic paintings and pink-centred wedding cake. The bride walked down the aisle to “Secrets” by the Piano Guys. “I wanted something classical with a bit of a modern twist,” says Alyssa.
