Meet Chef Igor

 Creator of memorable wedding menus.

If there’s one thing the guests will always remember about your wedding, it’s the food.  Chef Igor is the man behind Embrace Wedding’s reputations for exceptionally good menus. His passion for creating and serving memorable menus  shines as the jewel in our wedding services.

Building from his foundational framework as the Executive Chef of the Hilton Ajax  to  Director of Food & Beverage at York University, Chef Igor has led numerous large scale events and VIP dinners. He’s catered to  both Canadian and international celebrities, but considers the success of your wedding menu to be the highlight of his career.  

Through it all, Chef Igor’s passion for fresh, local Canadian ingredients shines in each dish. He believes simple but uncompromised execution makes for an exquisite menu.  Rather than trying to add flashy or trendy elements, Chef Igor  instead pays close attention to details and organization, so that each plate is art in itself.

Greetings from Chef Igor:

A big welcome to our nearly-wed couples!

Let's work with the season to create a spectacular result for your wedding menu.  When you describe the dishes or ingredients you wish to enjoy, I will transform them into a experience your guests will remember for many anniversaries to come.
