Raman & Robin

Despite the rollercoaster of emotions and challenges that 2020 brought to couples, love was not cancelled for Raman & Robin. Instead of postponing their big day, we helped plan and design their outdoor wedding ceremony and reception within 3 weeks while keeping all health and safety protocols top of mind. Raman & Robin’s Sikh ceremony was held on the beautiful grounds of Belcroft Estates in Simcoe County. The day was filled with sunshine, nature and the Bride’s favourite colour, lavender. Their reception was hosted at one of Toronto’s most historic sites, Evergreen Brick Works, the following day. This day took a bolder stance with exposed brick, geometric patterns and lush gold as part of the design. It was a pleasure working with Raman & Robin, both frontline and essential workers, and experiencing the unity of two souls during these trying times.

Cameron & Katherine

After having to make the difficult decision to postpone their August wedding due to the pandemic, Cameron & Katherine were able to tie the knot in October despite the challenging circumstances. Their Fall wedding at the stunning Kortright Centre for Conservation was nothing short of magical. Surrounded by their closest family and friends, Cameron & Katherine’s ceremony took place outdoors. Although the weather called for rainfall in the Greater Toronto Area, the rain held for these two on their special day. It was meant to be.

Bharat & Rennu

When the pandemic hit earlier this year, Bharat & Rennu were not sure if their October wedding was going to be a go. After being forced to choose a different ceremony venue and cancel their reception, the pandemic did not stop Bharat & Rennu from getting married on their original wedding date. They tied the knot outdoors on the gorgeous grounds of Willow Springs Winery in Whitchurch-Stouffville. Their Fall wedding colour consisted of a beautiful burnt orange along with pastels and their guests were surrounded by stunning Willow trees. Although their wedding looked different from what they had originally planned, love was not cancelled for these two deserving souls. It was truly a magical day.

Ishan & Bhawana

Despite the cold winds during the month of November, you could feel the love and warmth that Ishan & Bhawana share with one another during their two-day soirée. With only 7 months of planning, their Hindu ceremony followed by their reception the next day was incredibly intimate and nothing short of beautiful. Thank you both for trusting SJ Soirée with your special day. We look forward to planning your future milestones with you.

Sumeet & Jasmeet

This breathtaking tented Sikh ceremony was hosted on the private property of Jasmeet’s family’s estate. With cross back chairs, log pedestals and mason jars filled with baby’s breath, Sumeet & Jasmeet longed-for a rustic theme for their ceremony. On the other hand, their reception reflected luxury chic with a stage full of gold bar backs and large floral arrangements. We are in love with their reception pictures as they show us that even the smallest nooks and crannies of the city can result in the boldest capture.

Written In the Stars

A styled shoot inspired by the beauty of crystals, the moon and the stars, portrayed through elegance and simplicity. It’s a modern take on a starry deep midnight sky that follows a colour scheme of soft hues of blues, pinks and gold accents. A beautiful watercolour technique used for stationery, a bold three-dimensional moon at the arbour and stylish pampas grass displayed throughout a historic venue, truly represents a contemporary, celestial wedding. Let’s not forget the charming couple that brings forth intimacy, romance and passion, ultimately making the audience believe in a dreamy destiny.

Emily’s Sweet Sixteen

On New Year’s Eve of 2018, I received a phone call from Emily’s mom in need of help planning her daughter’s late quinceañera. I knew this meant a lot to the family because who else would be thinking of planning a party that wasn’t about New Year’s Eve at the time? Emily wanted a chic venue overlooking the city’s skyline, pink decor whilst remaining elegant, and fun Spanish music to represent her culture. On May 11, 2019, the family celebrated Emily through a night of singing, dancing and great company.

Kinny & Ganga

During Canada Day long-weekend this past summer, Kinny & Ganga tied the knot. It was a beautiful two-day soirée in which the ceremony was held on a Saturday morning followed by an elegant reception at the Arlington Estate in Kleinburg, Ontario the next day. They adore Beauty & the Beast and wanted to ensure this theme came across during their reception. By taking a modern and minimalistic approach, they truly provided their guests with a delightful experience.
