Simple and Chic Toronto Wedding

Kate and Matt’s simple and chic Toronto wedding certainly made a case for the “less is more” mantra, with beautiful photography by Niv Shimshon. Keeping the wedding small and intimate was a priority for the couple. Their venue, Gardiner Museum, was a sentimental choice being close to the University of Toronto where the two studied and worked. The couple ended their sweet and stress-free celebration at a local pub to share in the good company of family and friends.

The Couple: Kate and Matt

The Wedding: Gardiner Museum, Toronto, CA

The Inspiration: We wanted a simple but elegant look to the wedding. A friend of mine had worked at the Gardiner Museum and I knew I loved the space. The venue has lots of pale wood, glass and concrete so we matched this modern but muted aesthetic with a few white flowers and branches.
