Marissa + Oppi Tie the Knot, captured by MIMMO & CO
From the bride... Our wedding planner, Machel Reeves, helped us pick the Royal Canadian Yacht Club for our reception. It was an amazing wedding venue – providing a sublime backdrop for our ‘Toronto Island’ getaway.
Our favorite moment of the day was the conclusion of the “laava,” or walk around the Guru Granth Sahib, which describes the soul’s journey to unite with the infinite. This is when the partners’ souls are united according to the Sikh faith, and we were officially married – one spirit in two bodies.
My favorite wedding detail? The photos! The images by MIMMO & CO are evidence of the moments that we shared, but also of moments that we might have otherwise missed – friends and family enjoying the day and all of the beautiful moments we will cherish forever.
For the groom, the best part was definitely the music, which highlighted bringing together our Punjabi, Caribbean and Canadian backgrounds.
