Shangri-La Toronto Wedding

We had the privilege of attending a very special evening at the Shangri-La Hotel in Toronto this past Tuesday evening. We graciously shared the extraordinary experience with an impressive and selected group of some of Toronto’s top wedding influencers.

Located in the heart of downtown, the Shangri-La’s central location is an oasis of luxury nestled amongst Toronto’s beautiful cityscape.

The evening started with a cocktail reception, followed by an exclusive viewing of an artful wedding video showcasing a luxury bridal experience.

The impeccable staff greeted us in the Museum room with its grande 13 Italian crystal chandeliers hanging at various lengths, cascading florals hung from the ceiling and the gorgeous table setting stretched across the room was set with perfection displaying elegant stationary by Paleterra Custom Correspondence. With the artistry of Stemz Event Design and Floral, not a single detail was overlooked.

Installations surrounded the room showcasing pieces from Kleinfeld Hudson’s Bay, Maison Birks, Patricia’s Cake Creations, and Palettera Custom Correspondences.

With the graceful sounds of Grooveyard, a Toronto based band, the room was filled with fluent sounds of jazz, and classical funk.

Damon Campbell, executive chef whom has recently returned to Canada after four years in Asia, was most recently an executive sous chef at Edsa Shangri-La, Manila in the Philippines.

The menu for the evening started with a caviar donut; northern divine caviar, egg, shallot, chive, Brioche. A Chilled Dungeness Crab with smoked Char Rose, Hearts of Palm, Baby Radish Citrus Buttermilk Dill Dressing, paired with tollgate Chardonnay 2012 Niagara on the Lake, was followed by Cumbrae Farms Dry Aged Beef, Smoked Bacon Wrapped Rib Eye & Short Rib Celeria, Pavé, Forest Mushrooms, Sweet Onions, Black Truffle, Natural Jus; paired with Buil & Giné “gine gine”  Garnacha, Carignana 2011 Priorate, Spain.

Kate Siegel, Pastry Chef created an incredible Passion Fruit Bombe; Passion Fruit Bavaroise Calamansi Gelee, Coconut Crunch and Coconut Lime Sobet; visually stunning and heavenly tasteful paired with Henry of Pelham Vidal Icewine 2011 Beamsville Bench.

Krista Fox of Krista Fox Photography captured the evening absolutely flawlessly.

One of the most luxurious and gracious spaces in the city, Shangri-La Hotel Toronto extol the qualities found in the ideal luxury wedding.
