Find of the Moment: Casa Loma, the beginning of “Happily Ever After”

A destination wedding can take place anywhere, not just in a tropical paradise.  Recently, we  discovered the magic of Toronto, bathed in a warm glow of fall colors.  A bustling metropolis with world-class entertainment, dining and accommodations, Toronto has some great treasures, and Casa Loma is one of them.

Casa Loma was Canada’s Camelot, built by a financier Sir Henry Pellatt.  The project started in 1911 and took three years and $3.5 million to build.  Today, it welcomes you with elegance and grandeur of old Europe and is the ideal place for a fairy tale wedding.

 

Despite the authentic feel of an old European castle, getting to Casa Loma is much simpler than following a winding narrow passage and crossing the moat.   Within minutes, you leave the hustle and bustle of modern life behind, as you drive down stately residential streets lined with mature trees. Best of all, the grounds offer a very modern day amenity – a large parking lot that can accomodate cars as well as tour coaches.  Inside, you are instantly transported and your guests will enjoy learning about Casa Loma history – after all, this IS a museum!

The conservatory is bathed in light streaming through the floor to ceiling windows and is surrounded by lush plants, brining the garden inside. No matter what time of year you select, the conservatory provides a beautiful backdrop for wedding pictures. With a fountain as its focal point, it is a romantic spot for a wedding ceremony!

Imagine using this elegant hallway to line up for your wedding processional!

Now that you’ve peaked inside the castle, it’s time to close your eyes and imagine your wedding day at this elegant one of a kind place. Wondering what to wear? We have just the perfect place for the wedding gown fit for a princess.  Next stop, Valencienne, where Kim Ironmonger and her designers create bespoke luxury.
