Adam + Caroline
On Friday, June 16th, if you had taken a stroll down to Toronto’s Roundhouse Park, formerly the switching yard for the Ontario, Simcoe and Huron (OS&H) railway – now home to the TorontoRailwayMuseum, you might have seen wedding of Adam and his enchanting fiancé Caroline. The ceremony and the reception took place, despite the heat and humidity, at the Steam Whistle Brewery, which occupies bays 1-14 of the historic John Street Roundhouse building. As Adam had said in the final speech of the night, Steam Whistle is both one of the best beer brewers and wedding venues in Toronto!
The vows were said just passed high noon, after the shadow of the nearby CN Tower had gave way to a beautifully, naturally lit ceremony. Caroline’s elegant white dress popped against the tall black barn doors of the rear patio, like a light shining in the darkness, which assuredly is how Adam must see her all the time. Following tears and cheers, a flood of family and friends gathered in front of the retired cars of the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific, everyone in an eager fervor for photos for the newly minted husband and wife.
As the sun began to set and short rains came and went, on and off, the party transitioned indoors into “The Hall” behind the Steam Whistle Retail store. The 4000-square foot loft style space at the back of the Steam Whistle Brewery radiates a rustic country charisma with its exposed brick walls and 30 foot high hardwood ceiling, reminiscent of weddings of days gone by. For something as traditional as a wedding for two people as modern as Adam and Caroline, this inviting old building is the perfect fit, with it’s country feel juxtaposed with iconic city sights of the CN Tower and the Rogers Center, formerly but also always known as the Skydome.
