recommended wedding vendors in toronto & niagara

wedding

VENUE: Chateau des Charmes

Great experience. We worked with two event coordinators as there was a bit of restructuring from the time of our booking to the day of our wedding. Both coordinators were lovely and everything worked out as planned.

PHOTOGRAPHER: Julian & Kelly Moniz

The absolute best. I think Julian & Kelly Moniz were the very first vendor we hired and it was the best decision. We are so happy with our pictures and they had such good vibes (sup millennialsssss) on the day. They were such a pleasure to spend the day with and I highly recommend them!

 

VIDEOGRAPHER: Love Stories 

We loved our video and they were great to spend the day with! It took a little longer than expected to receive the files, but we were happy in the end. Their site doesn’t seem to be live anymore, so they may not be doing wedding videos any longer.

 

FLORIST: Stok Floral

Great experience. My bouquet was one of my favourite pieces from the entire day. I loved it. It was so perfect and exactly what I asked for. They also did our arch, flower arrangments, and our bridal party florals, including: small bouquets, flower crowns, boutonnières, and corsages.

DECOR: Simply Beautiful Decor

Beautiful decor and such a pleasant team work with! Very responsive and we worked solely through email due to the distance, since they are based out of Niagara. They were so accommodating and sent pictures over email so we could make our final decor decisions.

COORDINATOR: Lasting Events

The best decision we ever made was hiring Mallory as our coordinator. Do it.

RINGS: Local Jeweler & Staghead Designs

My husband wanted something unique for this band and went with a wood band. Staghead also has some pretty unique bands like antler, various types of wood, and different metals.

DJ: Hurrishane

He was so good! He actually was the DJ at a wedding of a close friend so we knew ahead of time that he was awesome. So nice to work with and very open to our vision and suggestions!
