Looking to add your cultural heritage into your modern-day wedding? This Toronto base team wowed us with their ability to show off a wholly modern industrial space while still featuring delicate, Russian folk details.
We’ve chatted about it before with wedding diversity expert Nova Reid about the creative ways to incorporate your families’ cultures into your wedding while still being ‘you’. From the bold red color to Russian inspired stationery, iconic nesting dolls, delicious baked goods and even carefully styled bridal braids – the talented Toronto team found chic ways to show off the would-be couple’s Russian heritage.
So how did they manage to bring this Russian-inspired affair into the modern age? For one, the dress & attire make a bold, western statement both from our bride’s sexier gown to the groom’s stylish & creative fitted suit. The space itself offers an update on the typical orthodox venue – the inherently modern choice of the industrial Jam Factory is softened by stunning drapery & upscale decor.
Photographed by Whim & Willow, this creative inspiration is a perfect marriage of modern style & nostalgic tradition.
