Shelizé & Aleem.

Shelizé and Aleem were married over a crisp and clear weekend this past October. The couple hosted a traditional ceremony at the new Ismaili Centre Toronto and Aga Khan Museum. The following day, guests were invited to a glittering reception at the Delta Hotel Toronto where they were treated to an exquisite meal of Indian cuisine catered by The Host, and entertained by a Bollywood-style dance performance by Broken Dance Performing Arts, who were recently finalists on Canada’s Got Talent. Calvin Lee photographed the events.

Vivian & James: Traditional Opulence.

Vivian and James wanted their wedding to be not only a celebration of the love they shared together, but also a day to honour their family and friends, thanking them for their love and support. The couple showed their appreciation by hosting an affair full of flair and opulence, designed and planned by Wendy Lee of Asian Fusion Weddings. A palette of vivid scarlet and ornate gold was the cornerstone of the wedding, one rich with Chinese tradition. The ballrooms of the King Edward hotel served as the elegant backdrop to the festivities.

Throughout the day, the couple honoured their families in a series of tea ceremonies — a sweet tea promotes continued happiness; lotus seeds and red dates are said to bring the newlyweds children early and often. At the reception, guests were treated to an exquisite seven course meal by Vivian’s Uncle’s company, Grand Catering. Meanwhile, lion dancers and acrobats entertained the crowd until it was time for the dancing to begin. Before departing for the evening each of the guests was favoured with a jade token from H&F Jewellery.

Supported and surrounded by their beloved family and friends, Vivian and James celebrated their marriage with a day of tradition born of their heritage. It was a day they won’t soon forget.

Zahra and Don: I Just Wanna Stop.

Zahra and Don were set to wed in the summer of 2011. Plans were running smoothly; the formidable wedding wheel was fully engaged. But three weeks before the day of, the couple did the unthinkable deed, the deed that so few couples ever have the courage to do: They called it off—cancelled their wedding! They needed time to think, time to work on their relationship. So they postponed the wedding till June of the following year. They strengthened their ties, and the couple continued as promised along the path to marriage—this time stronger, happier, and decidedly deeper in love. It takes a smart couple to realize that if you want to keep loving someone, you may just have to stop.

Zahra loved the design of her original invitations; so much that she and planner Melissa Haggerty decided to reuse them by crossing out the original date and writing in the new one underneath. The guests were thoroughly amused!

Planner Melissa Haggerty and photographer Jackson Huang stopped traffic with the help of four policemen on bicycle, seconds before a 2000 person protest overwhelmed Bloor Street.

As a child, Don spent many hours in The Conservatory studying music. Planner Melissa Haggerty thought it apt that Don play Zahra down the aisle. So he bought a piano to practice and told none but Zahra, who, after walking down the aisle, sat down at the piano and played the final note.

Zahra and Don took a page from the “You are My Sunshine” Style File in Wedluxe which staged a colour scheme of yellow, black and white. Planner Melissa Haggerty arranged the chairs to mimic piano key formation to echo Don’s musical tribute to Zahra. Lidia Taconelli of Fiori filled the room with enormous yellow garden roses that shined boldly against the crispness of black and white.
