Holly & Ted September 10, 2011

We featured Holy and Ted’s wedding in the premiere issue of The Wedding Co. Magazine, here are more photos from their spectacular wedding photographed by Bruce Zinger. If you would like to see the rest of this wedding here is how to get your own copy of The Wedding Co. Magazine.

Here’s their story:

We celebrated our wedding day with a traditional church service, followed by an unconventional reception for 160 guests in the Holcim Gallery, located at the Evergreen Brick Works.

The Brick Works requires services to be sustainable (something we wanted too), so we served local, seasonal food and wine. We support “The Stop” Community Food Program, so hosting the wedding at the Brick Works was another great way to back urban environmental initiatives.

Reclaimed from ruins last year, the Holcim Gallery stands as a steel-and-brick monument to a bygone era: Toronto’s manufacturing past. We wanted the gallery to reflect its history, but as an event location, it also needed a sense of polish. Adding finishing touches required a great deal of planning and execution — a Herculean effort undertaken by Ted’s mother, Kelly, who sourced all the decor to transform the gallery from a derelict shell into a rustic space with understated elegance.

As an open-air gallery, The Holcim provides a single degree of separation from the outdoors. Given the sublime weather in early September, the evening was nothing short of perfection. Story by: Trish Snyder
