We’ll let Clementine tell their story …
We were married on July 26th 2009, in the heart of Toronto. Although we had really turbulent weather the whole day, our day was still PERFECT! The sun came out every time I would have to step outside, it was truly magical!
My husband and I are from different cultures and so we decided that the wedding should incorporate and blend the eastern and western traditions. We are both modern and traditional at the same time. So we had our ceremony at a gorgeous church housed with an ever impressive pipe organ. I wore a Jim Hjelm ivory silk satin trumpet gown with alencon lace detail. For the reception, we opted for a hipper downtown hotel reception where we had our Chinese tea ceremony, followed by a western cocktail, a Chinese dinner banquet and a dessert buffet to die for. In the evening, I changed into a gorgeous lace Chinese wedding cheongsam and Jon changed up his white orchid boutonniere to a red rose to match me!
I’m all about simple elegance so I chose ivory and silver as the base colour but injected bright fuchsia and green colors as accents, since it’s a summer wedding after all! I chose to use hydrangeas and orchids as my main flowers.
I’m an architect, so naturally I LOVE DIY projects. I made pretty much all my wedding stationery. Ceremony programs, menus, table numbers, escort cards, the escort card board, and even wish cards to go with the photo guest book. The polaroids for the photo guest book was especially successful!
Our congratulations to Clementine and Jonathon!
