Today’s wedding is proof that you don’t have to travel around the world to enjoy the romance of a charming location! Xiaoyi + Chris married in their home of Toronto, yet the day took on a chic Parisian feel thanks to the venue: a dreamy little downtown French café. Together with their 23 guests, Xiaoyi + Chris enjoyed an intimately beautiful celebration. Rainbow Chan Weddings & Events helped to design + plan the day, giving us a little peek into how they pulled off the classic style:
Xiaoyi + Chris chose to have an outdoor ceremony on an absolutely splendid autumn day, deciding on downtown Toronto’s exquisite French bistro, Colette Grand Café. Bright, spacious, beautiful, and an absolute wonder to behold, it was perfect for an exclusive and intimate wedding experience. We wanted an elegant color palette of lily white and carnation pink for the bride, muted shades of green and peach pink for the bouquets by White Oak Flower Co., and the classic sharpness of jet black for the groom. Complemented with hues of navy blue provided by Colette Grand Café’s interior, the mingling of these colors created a truly remarkable atmosphere for our ceremony and celebration.
Eric Cheng Photography documented all the lovely details! Let’s have a look, oui?
Is there anything more meant to be than stripes + florals? Absolutely adore this romantic invitation suite by Minted Weddings!
Let’s just take a moment to applaud Xiaoyi’s classic yet funky Christian Louboutins!
These Baila Spike Ankle Strap Pumps are sadly sold out, but we found some similar alternatives if you’re as much in love as we are!!

The French-Inspired Venue
Isn’t this the most gorgeous venue? The bistro’s pavilion was transformed into an aisle, looking like a dream with all that dappled light!
YES to bridesmaids in blush! And loving the windswept romance, with hair and makeup by Vivian Wu Make Up.
