On February 18, 2018, we held the first of three Wedding Academy events at Shangri-La Hotel Toronto. We hosted this fun and interactive event to share wedding planning tips from top industry professionals in a private setting. It was so much fun and so so beautiful! See some of the highlights of the event below. Details at http://www.wedacademy.ca. Photos by L’Atelier Lumiere.
