When Natalie and Mario stumbled across Caffino Ristorante, they realized their dreams of a European wedding could be recreated in downtown Toronto. The intimate space was perfect for a casual and fun wedding vibe true to the relaxed couple. Natalie, a graphic designer, created the invites, menus and thank you cards, as well as the fabulous lace chocker that went perfectly with her simple, sexy A La Robe wedding dress. Photographer Kayla Rocca captured the couple’s most memorable part of the day, their first look.
Natalie and Mario
Caffeine Ristorante, Toronto
I didn’t have much style inspiration, I knew I wanted something simple and sexy for my dress. I kept my hair and makeup on the natural side, I wanted to look like myself. Bridesmaids wore different, long black dresses, that they choose.
I’m a graphic designer so I DIY’ed invites, menus, thank you cards, signage. I also DIY’ed the chocker necklace that I wore.
My photographer was amazing, I felt so comfortable with her and she was able to capture such beautiful moments. Our first look was the most memorable moment of the day.
We originally wanted to get married in Europe and came across Caffino which feels like a European Cafe. We choose Caffino because it was small, intimate and beautiful.
