The unbelievably stunning celebration of Kristie and Luis’s wedding took place at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto. The hotel is a significant landmark for Toronto, not only because of its exquisite interior but also of its presence in the city for more than fifty years. The history of the structure dates back to the mid-1800s and has since been featured in countless films on the silver screen.
Weddings in and of themselves are already enchanting affairs, but having the celebration take place at The Royal York undoubtedly enhances that sense of magic because of the hotel’s rich history. Kristie’s interest in vintage fashion led her to select an authentic vintage wedding gown for her special day (a surprise for Luis). The gown complimented the venue and the simplicity of its design photographed brilliantly because it contrasted nicely with the extravagant hotel interiors.
The Royal York has preserved its traditional aesthetics yet it has also evolved with the times. The hotel also has a rooftop which offers a gorgeous view of the city (it is also where their bee farm is located). We were lucky that the bees were behaving that day and managed to capture some great outdoor shots!
Since both the ceremony and reception was held at the grand hotel, Curio’s photographers were able to focus more time on photographing absolutely everything. It was such a pleasure and a privilege to photograph Kristie and Luis’s wedding, congratulations again!
