Atlantis Pavilions & Dreams – A Beautiful Muti-Day Wedding
Dreams Convention Centre
In August of 2015 we had the opportunity to work with a lovely couple, P&G, to assist with designing their wedding. They had a multi-day wedding featuring a traditional Sri Lankan dinner. This was following their Christian wedding service at Rexdale Alliance Church in Toronto. The lovely dinner, catered by Raja Ram, was held at Dreams Convention Centre in Brampton. The beautiful decor at Dreams was provided by Diya Decor. Here are some of the gorgeous photos from day one, all courtesy of Tom Wang Photography.
Our bride and groom wanted a very different vibe for their smaller, intimate celebration party at Atlantis Pavilions later that weekend. While designing the space, we kept in mind the fact that our couple preferred simple elegance. We worked with a neutral colour palette to make the most of the lovely, large windows in the venue and the natural light. We flanked the head table with large blossom trees and used our fabulous embroidered Vashti overlay on the head table, as well as some of our decor items. A special thank you to Sarah and all of the staff at Atlantis – it was a pleasure working with you on this lovely wedding!
Several fab vendors made this special weekend happen, and we wanted to recognize them! Check these guys out – you won’t be disappointed!

Thank You Notes – Toronto Wedding Planners
p>Today I wanted to discuss something that is near and dear to our hearts.
We received a very touching thank you note and gift from one of our clients this past weekend. We love receiving wedding thank you notes from our clients, because it tells us that even after all of the festivities are over, we did a great enough job that our clients wanted to send us a token of their special day. This lovely card was sent to us by our clients, Ashley and Ben. We assisted with the décor and coordination and their wedding in November of 2014. We had such a fun time, and we were so moved by the atmosphere of love that surrounded this union. Thank you so much for taking the time to send us this beautiful token (and the lovely intoxicating gift, wink wink :D).
“To the Whim team,
Thank you doesn’t even begin to describe how thankful we are to you guys for all your hard work, creativity, time and commitment to making our wedding special for us.
We appreciate the care that you put into planning the event, and we enjoyed collaborating with your team.
You went above and beyond for us, and we hope that you enjoy our small token of appreciation.
Wishing you all the best,
<3 The Constables”
Sending a thank you note to your vendors is a great way to let them know that they did a fabulous job. As wedding professionals, we are extra cognizant of the fact that this is one of the most important days of your life, and we are always so touched and overjoyed when our clients are happy with our work. We recognize that you could have selected anyone – but you chose to include us on your momentous occasion. We don’t talk about this much, but we get very invested in each of our couples, and we genuinely miss each and every one of you after the wedding. These thank you notes make us very happy because we know that our couples miss us, too!
Until next time… Gratefully yours,
The Ladies of Whim

Enjoy this Toronto Fusion Wedding
Toronto Fusion Wedding
Today on the blog, we are featuring one of our own Toronto fusion weddings from August 2014. We wanted to give you lovely readers an idea of a simple fusion Hindu wedding. The bride is Guyanese (of mixed religious descent) and the groom is Trinidadian, of Hindu descent. They wanted to have a traditional ceremony with a fun, Western style reception. Enjoy the gallery!
The bride and groom decided to have a traditional Hindu wedding on the first day of their wedding weekend. The second day of their Toronto fusion wedding weekend was their traditional Western wedding reception. This is a fun idea because each day had a completely different look! The wedding ceremony was held in Brampton at the Chinmaya Mission Toronto . The reception was held at Red Rose Convention Centre .
On the first day, the bride and groom wore traditional Indian attire. The bride wore a red lehenga with beautiful mehendi (henna) adorning her hands. The groom wore a kurta with a matching turban. On the second day of their Toronto fusion wedding, the bride wore a traditional white wedding gown and the groom wore a three-piece suit. The bride and groom purchased their Indian attire in Brampton and Mississauga. The bride purchased her wedding gown in Unionville. Enjoy the professional photos, taken by Sabih Usman of Accentuated Moments Photography , now based out of Calgary. Enjoy!
