The team at R5 Event Design is thrilled to announce that we won the award for “Best Event Décor $30,000-$80,000” at the Canadian Event Industry Awards presented by CSE (Canadian Special Events) for our event “A Rouge Paradise Wedding #Lovewins with Matt and Jesse”. It’s truly an honour and we’re so grateful to see that our talented industry peers have recognized our hard work on a nationwide scale.
This event was special to us for many reasons. #Lovewins represents that this was a gay wedding and we’re proud to be living in a nation of equality, love, and support of same-sex marriages. We had the pleasure of working with the grooms and their wonderful families from beginning to end. We also had the pleasure of working alongside very talented event planner, Malvina from Fabulous Occasions who helped bring this stunning vision to life.
Our grooms wanted a design that reflected their sophisticated bespoke taste combined with something bold that spoke to their fun personalities. They rented out the entire Thompson Hotel in Toronto on August 8, 2015 to celebrate the ceremony, cocktails, dinner, and a rooftop after party. The ceremony took place on the main floor in the hotel lobby bar. We erected a custom truss structure with a custom printed step and repeat. The clients both love to travel, so airport codes of places they travelled became the backdrop for the step & repeat. A red carpet was laid in front for guests to stand on while being photographed.
All of the flowers used for this wedding were custom grown to accommodate the quantity of exotic flowers needed. The flowers included: custom dyed red & fuchsia hydrangeas, a variety of red dahlias, red celosias, red pin cushions, red roses, and large fuchsia phalaenopsis orchids.
This was a memorable wedding for us because of the journey our two grooms travelled to have such a beautiful wedding. #Lovewins
