DIY Minimalist Toronto Loft Wedding at Five Brock

January 8, 2020 | Junebug Weddings

Kejina and Jeremy wanted to create a wedding that felt like a dinner party they would have at home—a day that “felt like us”—so they chose Five Brock for it’s open-concept, loft design. Fun fact: The venue is right around the corner from where the couple shared their first date! We’re loving how Kejina DIY’d most of the decor, including the invitations, menus, table numbers, and seating chart. If you’re into fashion, you’re sure to love this couple’s modern, trendy style, with Kejina in a sleek Catherine Deane gown and Jeremy looking dapper in a white suit jacket and black pants from Suit Supply. We can’t wait for you to get inspired by these incredible photos by Nikki Mills!

The Couple:

Kejina & Jeremy

The Wedding:

Five Brock, Toronto, Canada

The most important thing was that we planned our wedding to feel like “us”. It was really important to have our wedding be an intimate gathering that felt like a dinner party we would host at home. We live in a different city from most of our friends and family and don’t get to have dinner parties with them often, so we really wanted the wedding to feel like that. We also wanted it to really represent us and our family unit, and have Jeremy‘s daughters be a part of the day.

Wedding planning advice from the bride and groom: Everyone has an opinion about what your wedding should be like. Just stick to what’s important to you as a couple and focus on the things that honor your relationship. There are thousands of ideas of what you can do, just focus on those things that add impact that your guests will remember and appreciate.

We wanted an open concept loft style venue that would allow us to have our ceremony and reception in the same place. The venue we chose ended up being right around the corner from our first date!

We chose our vibe to reflect who we are normally – modern and trendy, but not over the top. The overall feel was minimal chic, everything was simple but the elements that were designed were thought out very intentionally. I DIY’d our invites, menus, table numbers and seating chart. I love the look of clear table numbers, so I bought clear frames and used a Cricut to create the vinyl numbers. We also had personalized menus for each guest that reflected their meal choices.

  1. perfect!! Great wedding

  2. I love this idea. It is so true that people just need to stick with what makes them comfortable and not let the expectations of others overshadow what they want – easier said than done though. Intimate weddings are the best and that loft is just stunning!

  3. Hi! I am obsessed with all of these photos- I’m actually getting married this summer at Five Brock and love the table layout this couple chose for dinner. I’m wondering if you know how many guests they had at their wedding?

    • Hi there! Unfortunately we don’t have that information!
