Priya + Ryan | One King West | WG Fusion

{ fusion Love }

Authored by Leah Sandhu, WG-Fusion


There’s something so special about seeing two cultures come together. The joining of two very different families and seeing them share their traditions with one another is truly beautiful, and Priya and Ryan’s wedding was no exception.

The brightly coloured sari’s and the bride’s handmade red reception lengha were stunning. I mean, really, how gorgeous is this bride?!?  All of the outfits were handpicked across the globe in India, making the cultural elements that much more authentic.

The Grand Banking Hall at 1 King West was the perfect fit for this sophisticated affair. The moment Priya and Ryan walked through the doors, the architecture immediately caught their attention and they knew it was where they wanted to celebrate their marriage. As explained in their Thank You speech, the Newlyweds had opted for a private ceremony surrounded exclusively by closest friends and family, while their lavish reception was the party they threw to thank everyone for their unyielding love and support. And what a party it was!

The oh-so-talented Grenville Pinto entertained the guests during dinner with his alternative take on a traditional sound. The passion he has for his art oozes from his every note and he draws guests into the magic while enveloping them in the sounds of electric violin. The night unfolded with food, dancing, and a stylish Scotch bar.

A Sunday afternoon surprise | Congratulations Tanja + Stephen!


{ surprise! }

A few weeks ago we posted on the WeddingGirl Dot Ca profile on Facebook that a large Canadian corporation was giving away a Day Of Coordination package to one lucky couple (a $2000 value!).

The catch? They needed to be getting married in less than six weeks!

Entries poured in and a handful of top finalists were selected.

Yesterday, we surprised our winners on the Burlington waterfront.

Our winning bride had no idea that we’d secretly been scheming with her groom for days on how to plan the ultimate reveal. The time was set, the photographer was in place, and the oversized balloons were drawing quite the crowd.



Apparently, as they walked down the boardwalk hand-in-hand, Tanja said to Stephen – “I love those big pink balloons!” (the balloons just happened to match her wedding colours).

“Excuse me, Miss – are the balloons for sale?”


“No… I’m sorry. They’re actually for someone else…..”

I took off my sunglasses and smiled at the Bride.

“Oh my god! I know who you are!!!!!”




Nothing but love and smiles and shrieks of joy basking in the afternoon sunshine.

The magic always happens outside of what’s expected, and yesterday, Tanja’s entire wedding plans took a turn.

“All I need from the two of you, for the next five weeks, is to stay madly in love. Go back to loving each other the way you did when you first met. Send her flowers to work, and cook him his favourite dinner. Remind yourselves of all the reasons why you’re walking down that aisle in a few weeks. I can’t wait to be a part of it.”

And with that, a new love story was born….. ours.

Can’t wait to celebrate with these two gorgeous people!

From all of us here at WG,

congratulations to you both!

(and thanks for turning me into an expert oversized balloon tamer!)
