Emily and Antonio's wedding was my first wedding at Berkeyley Church. When they first reached out to me, they shared their excitement for securing this venue. During my first venue visit, I immediately fell in love with this unique wedding venue just like Emily and Antonio did. Berkeley Church was a historic building at the heart of downtown Toronto. It looked like a regular church on the outside at a quiet street corner. Admittedly, I almost missed it as I was driving by. The inside of it was full of characteristics. The interior was well maintained from 1871 when it's first built. Aged brick walls. High ceilings. Classical mezzanine with 17-feet high stained glass windows. Cozy, intimate basement. What a perfect alternative wedding venue for tasteful couples who were looking for something different. Coincidentally, before I published this Berkeley Church wedding of Emily and Antonio's, I booked two other weddings at this downtown Toronto venue. The other thing that made this day complete was that Emily and Antonio were actually a quiet couple with beautiful souls and a strong bond. I felt that this venue that's so ordinary on the outside and extraordinary on the inside was a perfect fit for the occasion. The entire day felt very personalized. It's not a wedding to show. It's not a night to entertain. It's lots of quiet moments and memory to keep. Emily and Antonio also made great choices in wedding vendors. I loved everything from their cool wedding DJ to Emily's bouquet from Toronto florist Bontany to her dress from Vancouver bridal dressmaker Truvelle to Antonio's suit by local menswear brand Noir Label. They consciously chose the greatest local wedding vendors that again reflected their values and subtle personalities.
I secretly look forward to cross paths with these two beautiful souls at another happy occasion soon and wish them the best of the best.
lots of love,
