Elizabeth and Mike had their intimate wedding at Caffino; an Italian restaurant located in Downtown Toronto.

Caffino restaurant is an ideal place for those couples who are looking to celebrate an intimate wedding in downtown Toronto. Its food and its unique aesthetics make it so special. Also, the team is outstanding and welcoming.

In this case, Elizabeth and Mike live in Liberty village, so the close location was a big plus for them. Elizabeth got ready at their apartment and Mike rented one located right across the street. They saw each other at the ceremony. They had a delightful day surrounded by their closest ones. At the end of the day everyone was more than ready to dance.

They have been very generous in writing a few tips to help future couples to plan their day and to let us know how they liked Caffino restaurant as their wedding venue.

We chose Caffino because of its location in Liberty Village and the atmosphere in the restaurant. It's tucked off the main street, so it's quiet and intimate. We loved how cozy and quaint the interior was, plus the surrounding buildings and alleyways were exactly what we wanted for our pictures.

We would definitely recommend Caffino, all of our guests enjoyed the food and the fact that both the reception and ceremony were in one place. There are so many photo opportunities around Caffino that you really don't need to leave the area. Plus, Caffino comes with a wedding planner that really helped us on the day of by putting our decor out, getting our guests to the ceremony on time, and finetuning the timing details of the day.

All of it of course! Sitting at dinner and being surrounded by family and friends was definitely a highlight, especially after a few years of being distanced from everyone. The day ran so smoothly with everyone's help, we wouldn't change a thing.

The most important thing is to not get distracted by everyone's outside opinions and focus on planning the day that you and your partner want. We would have check-ins throughout the planning stage to make sure we were on track to the day that we wanted. We also asked a lot of questions to Cristina and our venue when we were unsure (such as planning the timing for the day, figuring out if we needed audio equipment etc.) Being able to ask these questions made us feel comfortable that the day would run smoothly.
