Quirky, creative, and effortlessly cool, the Gladstone Hotel is an art-inspired, eco-friendly boutique hotel here in Toronto. More than just a place for weary travelers, the Gladstone’s art exhibits, literary events, live music, and cafe make it a dynamic, fun place to meet and be! Which made it the perfect spot to stage a wedding editorial with a swanky-meets-tropical vibe.
The bright colors and tropical flowers bursting from this shoot are irresistibly cheery and pair perfectly with the hotel’s playful atmosphere, while still maintaining an air of elegance. One of things that makes this shoot extra special (and helpful for brides looking for ideas) is the bride and groom. They’re featured wearing two looks that demonstrate how a couple can really set the style tone. In the first set of images, our bride wears our simple (yet sexy!) Astrid & Mercedes Graceful gown, while her man goes retro in pale blue tuxedo jacket with black piping. Next up, she slips into our slinky, Jazz-Age-inspired Maya gown, and he’s full Gatsby in a classic black tux. We can’t decide which is our fave!
