When we started dating and as a new couple, we spent our time getting to know each other while exploring and walking around Toronto. We wanted to incorporate elements of that into our theme. Red and gold were our colour inspirations and tied in multiple elements: red being Rishi’s favourite colour, matching his bold and energetic personality, as well as traditions and beliefs of happiness and joy associated with the colour. Sabrina’s father passed away early in our relationship, and red was his favourite colour – getting married in red felt natural!
For me, the most memorable part of the day was right before our reception entrance. We were standing alone in the lobby, sneaking a peak into the hall watching the bridal party and our family enter… Seeing all of our loved ones in one one room, for a couple of minutes we got to quietly revel in the love we felt from the room and take in how our months of planning all came together in such a joyful event. We had an epic party – but I’m so happy we had those few quiet moments together.
The most memorable part of the wedding was seeing my new wife to be for the first time as she sat down next to me before we started the ceremony. It was such a surreal moment, that after all this time we were actually here. I was now about to marry the most amazing woman in the world and damn she looked beautiful!
