A Night Filled With Entertainment
When Austin and Tommy were planning their wedding at the Art Gallery of Ontario, they pulled out all the stops when it came to entertaining their guests. For starters, they arranged for their guests to have a private viewing of two exhibits at AGO on the day of their wedding.
During the reception, they screened a short film, When Austin Met Tommy, made by a friend. There were also Chinese dragon dancers, French Moulin Rouge cancan dancers and, to top it all off, they flew in the Quick Change Artists from Chicago (you might know them as the season one winners of America’s Got Talent).
The entertainment was definitely one of highlights of the day but, like most weddings, it’s the little moments that stand out. For Austin and Tommy, it was waiting in the wings with their moms as the wedding party walked down the aisle. This simple moment has become one of their most cherished memories.
I love all the details in this wedding, from the matching fabric used for the couple and wedding party attire (at first glance you, can’t even tell who is getting married) to the designer cake (“Tommy and I are label whores and we wanted a cake that reflected that,” says Austin). And, of course, the venue itself. Walker Court at the AGO had just come available for weddings and Austin and Tommy jumped on the chance to be married in a space that feels like a modern cathedral.
