The engagement began with a Parisian proposal and transitioned into husband and wife on a beautiful summer’s day on August 17, 2019. Camille Forsythe-Barrie and Adrian Luciani began their matrimonial adventure surrounded by family, friends, music, and tradition. They gathered in Toronto at the historic Metropolitan United Church alongside 160 guests to celebrate the magical day, flawlessly executed by STORI Events. The bride walked down the aisle with her parents in a haute couture gown made by her mother and the groom wore a custom ivory tuxedo.
The reception was held at The Great Hall, a beloved landmark built in 1889. Natural shades of green, bronze and ivory filled the space thanks to Vintage Rentals. Florist, Alisa Godina, transformed the venue with luscious green garlands, whimsical centerpieces and antique brass vase arrangements. They infused their Southern and Italian roots into the cuisine, from the antipasto bar to fried chicken by Eatertainment, and a 4-tiered fig garnished naked cake by The Cocoa Cakery.
Canadian Tenor Christoper Dallo performed the first dance song alongside the 8-piece band, Stereoflavour. Guests danced the night away and departed with a fair-trade gold and silver starburst ornament. The couple departed with a keepsake of their own, a first-dance painting captured by live painting artist Paul Dolgov.
