Megan and Santiago met while Megan was in Toronto on her summer internship three years ago. Santiago proposed on the balcony of his old apartment where they had their first kiss. They share their love for their dog Coco and heated intellectual debates.
Speaking of Coco, I can’t tell you how hard it was for me to do my job of taking photos and refrain from cuddling him when they brought him to the RCYC for wedding photos. I can see why they love him so much.
Megan and Santiago had their first look and pictures before the ceremony. This is a great option for couples who want to settle their nerves before and/or want to spend more time with guests. Because they both had lots of guest from out-of-town a first look was a good option. Their ceremony was outside, overlooking the Toronto skyline. Cocktail hour was across the way still on the water. They had lots of fun games to play while the guest cooled off with iced cocktails and drinks.
The reception decor was just stunning. Orange flowers and gold decor perfectly complimented the blue/nautical interior.
Santiago brought the Columbian tradition of La Hora Loca (Crazy Hour). This signifies the end of the reception and the beginning of the after party. All the remaining guests at dress up in costumes and dance the night away. It typically goes for about 45 minutes. After which time you’re significantly revved up for the after party. I think this is where that Columbian coffee favour would come in handy.
Summer is the perfect time to have your wedding at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club. You feel like you’re transported to another city – yet you can see it from across the lake.
I love venues with history and a great story. Did you know that RCYC – The Royal Canadian Yacht Club is is one of the world’s oldest yacht clubs? It was established in 1852. You can go check out some photos from the past on their website.
