For Kimberly and Nathan it was important that each of their cultures and traditions were part of their July 9, 2011 nuptials. “Our ceremony was a mix of Jewish and Catholic cultures,” shared Kimberly. “We thought it was really important to incorporate both cultures to make sure both sides of the family were honored! The vows were held under a chuppah, which symbolized the beginning of a new home. Our readings focused on love, friendship, marriage, and happiness!”
After the ceremony, guests headed to Arcadian Court in downtown Toronto, where the décor embodied the bride’s desire to incorporate both romantic and modern design elements. Hanging crystal centerpieces illuminated the tables and contained cream and light purple flowers. Signature martinis were served as guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres during the cocktail reception before being treated to an Oliver and Bonacini meal that featured creations like cream of broccoli soup with aged cheddar and sun dried tomatoes.
Their first dance was a mix of the Viennese Waltz and Rhumba and was choreographed to “Can I Have This Dance.”
