Christina and Michael’s steampunk wedding was a whimsical day at the Artscape Wychwood Barns. The cocktail hour featured food vendors from The Stop’s Farmers’ Market, tunes from Toronto DJ Roozbeh Nayeri, and a choreographed waltz for the couple’s first dance. Afterward, they headed over to The Duke of Somerset for a late-night afterparty.

Check out the bride’s awesome wedding day recap on her blog!

The wedding was fantastic. Our venue—perfectly-slipped-into-existence-at-the-end-of-the-Canadian-industrial-revolution Wychwood Barns—was bathed in sunlight as we arrived.

More than 800 people showed up for this family-friendly event on the last Wednesday evening of the summer.

We were very lucky to have some exceptionally talented photographers and bloggers in attendance. Check out some amazing photos courtesy of Alejandro Freeland and Village Living, and detailed recaps from T.O. See and T.O. Do and The Roaming Life.
