An Elegant Romantic Wedding At The Liberty Grand In Toronto

 | 

Bernie put a lot of thought into his romantic proposal to Amara. While meeting up with friends at a park, he hired an undercover photographer to take photos as Amara watched a video on an iPad. “The video ended with our friends and family asking her the question: ‘Will you?’ At that point I got on one knee and said a few words I can’t remember. She said yes!” Bernie recalls. “I didn’t even realize a small crowd of people had gathered round and applauded. It was a magical day.”

From the moment planning began, Amara knew she wanted to have a blush and gold wedding. “The palette was soft and subtle and very in tune with the romantic theme that we both love,” Amara says. The wedding cake also played a big role in their perfect romantic look. “Tosin of AfroCoco cakes took great care to ensure that the cake would be cohesive with the decor. It turned out exactly how we envisioned.”

Their special day included cultural traditions from both the bride and groom’s backgrounds. “We had contemporary African dancers perform,” Amara shares. “Our friends really enjoyed seeing that aspect of our culture.” To top it off, the couple’s large families ensured the energy and liveliness kept going into the wee hours—making for one truly special celebration.

Walking down the aisle after exchanging vows is a memory Amara and Bernie say they’ll cherish forever. “Not only was it the first time we were officially husband and wife, it was also the first time we really got to turn around and see our guests,” Amara shares. “It was then that it hit us that all these people came from places as far as Nigeria, Oman, and India just to celebrate our love.”
