An Elegant, Literature-Themed Wedding In Toronto


Danielle and Chris met at a school in the United Kingdom where they were both teachers, so it was only natural that the pair work scholarly endeavors into their wedding day.

The pair decorated their stunning venue, The Estates of Sunnybrook, in shades of dark plum and yellow with literary accents. Hardcover books were used as part of the centrepieces in the couple’s reception space while bookmark favours completed each place setting. Even the reception tables were named after classic novels!

“Everything went smoothly and as planned,” Danielle says of her wedding day. “It was the perfect setting, on the perfect day, with the best people there, to watch two best friends vow to share everyday in love and laughter. We paid attention to the details and wanted everything to just flow naturally. Looking back on the day, I don’t think I would have done a single thing differently. It was absolutely everything we could have asked for and everything we hoped for.”
