Rina & Aubin


It was a warm fall night in NYC when a unsuspecting man walked into a SoHo bar only to meet a young woman, and the rest as they say is history!

New York has undoubtedly been a co-star in this movie they call our life. We have a mutual love for this city – and through Cocktail Classics, Hurricane Sandy and countless days and nights of exploration, we have built a special life together in NY. This shared love of life includes a passion for new restaurants, shared bottles of rose on a warm patio, long walks exploring every nook and cranny in the city, a mutual love for a healthy lifestyle, and debates about music and movies that take us late into the night.

We are ecstatic at the thought of continuing to build our life together and overjoyed to share this special weekend with our family and friends. Your presence this weekend means the world to us and we can’t wait to celebrate with you!

    Sangeet

    The term Sangeet is Sanskrit, which when translated into English literally means ‘as sung together’.

    The Sangeet is a time for celebrating, singing and dancing – it is more or less a big party thrown the night before the wedding day and it’s the perfect time for wedding guests to meet and get to know our family and friends.
    The bridal and grooms party may learn dances to perform and you’ll probably see traditional Indian instruments, like a dholki (a two-sided drum!).

    So strap on those dancing shoes and get ready to party the night away!

    Baraat

    Apart from the very special relationship between Aubin and Rina, the traditional Indian wedding establishes a bond between two families and their cultures. One of the most important and fun ceremonies is Aubin’s arrival on the day of the wedding. Aubin will be escorted to the entrance of the Sheraton by his friends and family with lots of music, dhols and dancing, in a marriage procession called the ‘Baraat’. You won’t want to miss Aubin on his white horse!

    Rina’s family will then welcome Aubin and his family as part of the special ‘Milni’ or ‘Meeting of the Families’ ceremony.

Toronto, Ontario, Canada


Toronto, the provincial capital of Ontario, Canada, is a large, ethnically diverse city sprawling along Lake Ontario’s northwestern shore. A dynamic metropolis with a core of soaring skyscrapers, all dwarfed by the iconic CN Tower, it also features abundant green spaces, from the orderly oval of Queen’s Park to 400-acre High Park and its trails, sports facilities and zoo.

EAT

Scaramouche

1 Benvenuto Pl
Toronto, Ontario

Scaramouche has long been celebrated by customers and critics for its unwavering commitment to making each dining experience a memorable one. Chef/owner Keith Froggett’s sophisticated cuisine is presented simply with care and attention to detail. The service underscores that philosophy: unobtrusive and respectful. The restaurant affords a stunning nighttime vista of the downtown Toronto skyline. These components and more make Scaramouche the singular destination it is. And the reason that the restaurant is consistently ranked as one of the city’s best for more than three decades.

EAT

Richmond Station

1 Richmond St. West
Toronto, Ontario

Richmond Station is a stopping place, a bustling neighbourhood restaurant in the downtown core.

EAT

416 Snack Bar

181 Bathurst St
Toronto, Ontario

Hipster, cool, and interesting all things you can call 416 Snack Bar. They do a asian fusion with a splash of Mexican and then some European food to balance it out.

EAT

The Burger’s Priest

463 Queen Street W
Toronto, Ontario

The best burger joint in Toronto, perhaps in Canada?

EAT

Alo

163 Spadina Avenue 3rd Floor
Toronto, Ontario

Every night has the thrill of a culinary high-wire act—the kind of feat only achieved by experts. Alo is chef and owner Patrick Kriss’s first solo walk after years at Splendido and Acadia, and, before that, studying under the legendary chef Daniel Boulud.

EAT

Imanishi Japanese Kitchen

1330 Dundas Street W
Toronto, Ontario

A few years ago, izakayas—a.k.a. Japanese gastropubs—were a novelty here. Now that they’re as commonplace as poutineries, there’s real competition. There’s a short, evolving menu, and fleeting specials. Though there’s Sapporo by the litre, the atmosphere isn’t as hard-partying as at other izakayas. Maybe it’s the Japanese soul records; maybe it’s the serious eating.


Travel

Other Info

For those not familiar with Toronto, our main airport is Pearson International which is located 30-40 minutes from downtown Toronto (plan for traffic!).

Alternatively, you can fly into Billy Bishop airport, which is located on Toronto Islands and has a convenient pedestrian tunnel connecting passengers between this small island airport and the mainland. You will then be a quick 10 minute cab ride from our hotel.
