Huge group wedding highlights World Pride festivities
Over 100 couples tied the knot at Casa Loma yesterday afternoon as part of the Grand Pride Wedding ceremony for World Pride. Plenty of Toronto councillors came out to show their support, including Kristyn Wong-Tam and Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly, who kicked off the celebration. The inter-faith ceremony represented 12 denominations, which further underscored the inclusive nature of the event. Hosted by Liberty Entertainment (who covered the entire cost of the wedding), the event drew over 1000 attendees out to cheer on the newlyweds. The weather was perfect, the excitement was palpable, and the joy was on obvious display as the 110 couples locked lips and embraced at the conclusion of the ceremony.
