Being raised in Montreal there is so much I still have to discover and see in Toronto, so we decided to pay a visit to Casa Loma. A wedding was taking place when we got there, it definitely brought me beautiful memories of my own special day.
Casa Loma belonged to Sir Henry Mill Pellatt, he was one of Canada's most powerful businessmen, an ambitious financier who became wealthy through bold investments in electricity, real estate and mining.
He helped to bring electric street lights to Toronto and to develop the first Canadian hydroelectric generating station at Niagara Falls. In 1913, Pellatt and his wife Mary moved to Casa Loma, designed for them by architect E. J. Lennox. It was one of North America's grandest residences. Ten years later, the Pellatts were forced to leave after failed investments severely reduced their wealth.
Casa Loma was and continues to be one awesome spot for film producers, as you can see from all the posters in the basement of the house these are all movies that were filmed in Casa Loma.
If you come to Toronto don't forget to pay a visit to Casa Loma.

After Casa Loma we went to one of my favorite neighborhoods in Toronto, Yorkville and enjoyed a really romantic dinner at an Italian restaurant. We had an amazing time and the food was delicious.
Take care everyone!
