A Wedding of Traditions

Ceremony & Reception: The Fifth Grill Dining Room
Cocktail: The Fifth Terrace
Signing of Ketubah:One Room at The Fifth

The Wedding:

This beautiful summer wedding spanned several venues at The Fifth and incorporated many elements of a traditional Jewish wedding. The signing of the Ketubah (Jewish marriage certificate) was an intimate moment for the wedding couple and their parents in One Room. This was followed by a traditional Jewish ceremony for all family and friends at The Fifth Grill Dining Room. The couple said their “I Do’s” under a custom-made chuppah adorned with soft foliage, pastel blooms and delicate lace. The guests exited into the terrace for cocktails before returning to the dining room for a decadent dessert buffet.

The Theme:

Wedding planner, Lexi Haslam, created all the details for this vintage bohemian themed wedding complete with a neutral colour palette of pastels and rustic woodland elements. The fireplace mantle, window sills, bar and terrace were adorned with mismatched vintage glass vases of soft and wild blooms. The reception table was a romantic vignette of field flowers and framed engagement photos of the couple. The buffet was a cornucopia of house-made desserts including mini tarts, cookies, and multiple cakes elegantly adorned in buttercream, ganache, berries and fresh blossoms.

The Photography:

Though the ceremony followed many traditions, the photography of the wedding also showcased the couple’s love for the urban and modern. The Fifth alleyway and adjacent area is an ideal backdrop featuring Toronto’s century old warehouses. Scarlet O’Neill captured many romantic and fun moments of the couple in front of old brick facades and exterior fire escapes.
