I've only been to Toronto once. And what I discovered was an incredibly gorgeous city that I literally can't WAIT to go back and really explore. The art galleries, the restaurants, the people...everything seems so rich in style and in spunk. A combination that suits me to perfection. And this wedding, photographed by Vicky Starz, captures just that. With a bride in blue, a groom with a sweet smile and a style that reflects only their unique personality. It's love, love, love for this Toronto fete. Click here to see even more.
From Vicky of Vicky Starz Photography... Lara and Dave were together for 12 years before they decided to tie the knot. They opted to forego a traditional wedding as it didn't suit their wants and needs. The two of them wanted to create a wedding that reflected their relationship and what they love to do together.
After searching for various venues around the city, they fell in love with Boehmer Restaurant which is located in one of Toronto's hippest neighbourhoods. The decor includes a Brothers Dressler chandelier, a reclaimed wood table, and modern artwork that's strategically placed around the restaurant. The food is prepared to perfection and the restaurant atmosphere was exactly what they wanted. Lara tried on various wedding gowns at bridal stores around the city, even ordered one online, and returned it because nothing felt right on her. She decided to start trying on other dresses, and instantly fell in love with a blue Brian Bailey dress. She went with a dress that was true to her style and love every bit of it. Lara wanted her invites to reflect her modern vision. Papertalk Press specializes in modern designer wedding invitations and offered Lara exactly what she was looking for. Papertalk Press also designed and printed all the paper goods for the wedding, including the menus and tags. These beautifully designed and printed paper goods really helped to bring Lara's vision to life. Their main goal was to celebrate their union with an evening that represented them. They wouldn't change a thing!
