From Rebecca Chan Weddings & Events... Rebecca and Dan's wedding on June 20, 2016 showcased why Toronto is known to be one of the most multicultural cities in the world. Held in the heart of downtown Toronto, this couple's intimate urban wedding took place at an industrial event space called 2nd Floor Events.

Their ceremony took place at the venue along bright windows lined with hurricane candles and blush floral arrangements. A lush floral arch with garland served as the backdrop. Both Mexican and South Indian backgrounds were represented at the ceremony, showcasing the union of the both families and their rich heritages.

The bride's Indian background was represented in her beautiful cream sari and in the traditional "Minnu" and "Mantrakodi" ceremony. The Minnu, a chain that was blessed and prayed over by Rebecca's grandparents, symbolized love, harmony and understanding of the couple as they embark on their journey of life together. The Mantrakodi is the first piece of clothing presented by the groom to the bride, symbolizing their mutual welcome into each other's family.

The groom's rich Mexican heritage was represented by the lasso, an infinity loop, brought over by their aunt and uncle from Mexico who prayed a blessing over them. It symbolized their union together and commitment to always be side by side.

After the ceremony, the event space was transformed for the reception. The couple's engagement photos were put on light boxes at the bar serving as a backdrop to speeches. Romantic floral and succulent jars lined the tables. Table names that represented cities that had significance to the couple helped guests find their seats, replacing the traditional table numbers. Guests danced the night away while munching away at the lavish dessert table full of mini donuts, gourmet marshmallows and dozens of other desserts, making for a very sweet ending to their beautiful wedding celebration.

From the Bride... The highlight of the day was just after we said ‘I do’ and kissed, and looked at each other - then turning and looking out at all of our family friends, the people that we love most in this world, and being able to share that amazing moment with everyone. It was unbelievable and something we will never forget.
