Today’s super cool Jewish wedding absolutely epitomizes old Hollywood glam. Heather and Amos married at the Eglinton Grand in Toronto, a historic landmark Art Deco former movie theater. Inspired by their retro-fabulous venue, they went for a ‘20s film palace theme via some super creative DIY touches.
Amos, who has a graphic design background, took on ALL of the couple’s day-of stationery needs, from table numbers to ceremony handouts to menus, which he did in a vintage glam style that tied everything together beautifully.
Even cooler? Amos designed movie posters, featuring photos of the couple, that were displayed inside and outside the venue – check out the one he modeled on Mr. & Mrs. Smith just below! Such a clever idea.
Talented photographer Shauna Heron captured the old Hollywood feel perfectly – Heather said it was important to her and Amos to find a photographer whose images were truly pieces of art, and she delivered and then some. I just love how much the couple’s personalities come through in their photos – you can tell they really weren’t afraid to have fun with their day.
Oh, and this couple has an unbelievably adorable how-we-met story. Heather, who could not have looked chicer in her Mori Lee gown, will fill you in on all the details…
How we met
Heather, the bride: We are the product of a successful shidduch. My parents met Amos at an Israeli brunch hosted at the local JCC. After deciding they wanted to play matchmaker they invited him over to Shabbat dinner (not mentioning that they had 3 daughters about his age), asked me to come home for dinner and voila, the magic began. He almost fell over when I answered the door, but the matchmaking was a success: we talked all evening and he asked me out the next day. We’ve been inseparable ever since 🙂
