Tara O'Grady of Bliss Events planned and executed Alexandra & Mark's sun-drenched wedding. She beautifully captures the spirit of our couples day:
"Self proclaimed urban foodies, Alexandra Da Gama Rose & Mark Sorbara’s wedding was celebrated on a gorgeous sunny June afternoon in two of Toronto’s most stunning venues, St. Paul’s Basilica and Galleria Italia, AGO.
In keeping with the couples passion for inspired cuisine, the theme of Alexandra & Mark’s wedding was “Love, Food & Wine”. Upon arrival to the galleria, guests were invited to a guided “Food & Love Wedding Art Tour” featuring a hand selected few of AGO’s vast collection. The intimate guest list of 58 enjoyed a sumptuous food & wine paired menu accompanied by the smooth sounds of Jazz quartet, The Cat Bernardi Band.
Guests were seated at an exquisite 60ft Kings table adorned with lush, beautiful, seasonal flowers such as Gardenia peonies, ranunculus, garden and spray roses accented with mercury silver details and romantic candlelight. Set upon a beautiful blush Italian cotton linen with scalloped edging, this Bliss signature look exuded elegance and sophistication.
Guest favours were individual parmesan cheese wedges from the Cheese Boutique placed in custom made, stamped cotton bags.
Immediately following their wedding, the couple jetted off to Lyon, France further extending their pursuit of love, food & wine."
