The King Edward - Crystal Ballroom Wedding Book
First Wedding at the Crystal Ballroom
Omni Hotels & Resorts - The King Edward is an architectural gem and one of our favorite wedding venues in Toronto. This hotel has four stunning rooms that can transform into reception banquets. One of these rooms, the elegant Crystal Ballroom, was closed for nearly half a century until the Omni Hotels & Resorts splurged on renovations and revived it with contemporary richness and sophisticated charm. The first wedding in the newly renovated Crystal Ballroom was captured by our talented wedding photographers Michael Greenberg and Natalia Shaidenko on May 13th, 2017. The King Edward - Crystal Ballroom wedding book tells the story of this historic event.
To commemorate the grand opening of the Crystal Ballroom, we designed this beautiful book. Unlike our wedding albums that focus on the couple and their families, this photo-book centers on the venue and the very elements that made that night unforgettable. The talent involved in this event is remarkable and worth looking up.
The album opens with an overview of the ballroom fully set up and ready for its first wedding reception. Inspired by the story of the space and its grandeur, the decor team dressed the room in subtle colors enhancing the table design with beautiful centerpieces made of white spring flowers and gold candelabra to match the gold accents of the ballroom.
The couple had a Persian wedding ceremony at another excellent venue room - The Vanity Fair Ballroom. Our graphics designing team introduces this space in the album with a gorgeous panoramic spread followed by beautiful details from the wedding ceremony table called the Sofreh Aghd.
Our Persian bride and Irish groom in dashing wedding attires appear towards the middle of the album. Their bride and groom portraits were taken all around the King Edward’s hotel property.
The second half of the album focuses on photographs of everything delicious and the evening atmosphere of the event. Some guests called it a Great Gatsby wedding. Why? Take a look at our favorite panorama in this album - a photo-journalistic image of the groom singing to his bride from the balcony inside the ballroom accompanied by 18-piece orchestra. That’s as Gatsby as it gets. You can see and feel the magic of this moment and appreciate the grandeur and splendor of the first wedding at the Crystal Ballroom.
The first Crystal Ballroom wedding was published by the annual Omni Hotels and Resorts Escapes magazine in the fall of 2017.
