Toronto Wedding at the Ritz-Carlton | Sharon + Kingsley

The internet Is the best matchmaker around. Don’t believe us? Ask Sharon and Kingsley, who went to the same university and had loads of mutual friends…and should have met in person. Ten years later, the internet brought them together. Then, these two got engaged after running a half-marathon!

When in search of her gown, Sharon visited us at our flagship Toronto bridal boutique with a vision of a gown crafted of lace and satin. The custom gown Lea-Ann created for her inspired the Ember gown in our Midnight Garden Collection.

More about their day from Sharon, who took to the dancefloor with Kingsley to Frank Sinatra’s “Fly Me to the Moon” and plans to honeymoon in Italy and Greece in the future:


How did you choose your gown?


“I had a very specific vision of a combination of lace and satin. It is quite unconventional, but Lea-Ann made it for me, modifying the Isadora dress. She also told me it inspired the Ember gown in the 2021 collection.”

“We’d originally planned for a July 2020 wedding, but by the time April rolled around realized that we would need to reschedule. We had pre-paid most vendors by that point and everything was up in the air. When Toronto started to open up again in August 2020, we flew into action and planned the wedding in 6 weeks. We were very lucky all our vendors could accommodate our new date with short notice.”
