There is nothing more royal (in Canada) then having your wedding at a Fairmont hotel, especially the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto. It’s a Canadian icon and a beautiful venue! Kim and Colin have great taste when it came to venue, decor and photographer! It really was a Royal Wedding! Jennifer Klementti captured their day beautifully and we are so happy that she shared this beautiful wedding with us!
Her dress, flowers and bridesmaids dresses are some of my personal favourites. LOVE the blush wedding dress (something we are seeing a LOT of this year)!
Here is a little bit about Kim and Colin’s story and wedding day as told by Kim:
Colin and I met in our last year of undergraduate school at Queen’s University. Although we had lived around the corner from one another for two years, our paths never crossed. Then one evening, a mutual friend had a party and we stumbled upon each other. We continued to see on another at social functions, but did not start dating until the following summer when we both took positions in Kingston. We have been together ever since the summer of 2002.
Our wedding day totally exceeded our expectations! The Royal York is such a unique location with such a rich history. It played a big role in our day and was our favourite design detail. With such an amazing location, everything else falls into place easily!
We were both able to relax and enjoy the “getting ready” phase of the day: the guys had a leisurely brunch while the ladies spent the morning beautifying. The ceremony went just as planned, and the rain stopped just as we were preparing for outdoor photos. We had a swanky cocktail party, complete with jazz trio, before a delicious dinner. The party continued well into the night with a live band. I believe my sister, Kate, the maid of honor, summed up the night best: I have never seen a more beautifully romantic, sophisticated, and swanky evening turn into such a rowdy par-tay! We had a blast and celebrated with all our family and closest friends…what more could a couple ask for?
Thank you so much for sharing your special day with us! Congratulations!
