Marry Me Productions planned the heck out of this wedding. And because of that – and the fact that the couple is adorable-y in love – it is phenomenal. It has the same energy and vibe we’re totally feeling the bride & groom have – adventurous, fun, and colorful. Photolux Studio captured an affair that is bound to keep your energy nice and high through the afternoon. Click here for the buzz!
From Marry Me Productions … From our first meeting with Lauren and Dave they were clear about two things: they wanted their wedding to be an fun and celebratory reflection of themselves and that their dog, Toby, absolutely must be a part of the day!
These two share an amazing passion for traveling especially since their trip to Egypt over Christmas 2010 where Dave proposed inside one of the great pyramids at Giza. There have been wild adventures where they swam with sea lions, sea turtles and sharks in the Galapagos islands and others where they have climbed a 15,000 foot volcano in Ecuador. They have also survived the amazon jungle and conquered the four day trek through the Inca trail to Machu Piccu!
It was with this love of travel that their wedding had to reflect the energy and passion they bring to every aspect of their lives. The venue was an easy choice, as the grandeur of the National Gallery with all its light and glass provided the prefect backdrop to set off their peacock themed reception. No shy colours here, the couple choose deep purples and teals with an accent of rich golds and pops of fushia to bring their vision to life. This palette was reflected throughout the day in their linen, dresses, flowers and the crowd favourite – the candy table.
During the cocktail hour guests dined on a Filipino infused selection of Warm Shrimp and pork spring roll Vegetarian Pancit and Oysters on the half shell. This was followed by a 4 course meal that included a composed salad of roasted pear, dates, and blueberries, a seafood tasting plate, beef tenderloin and Tibetan Halibut. Before the dancing started each guest was served a “happy ending” shooter, a favourite of the couple.
The party continued into the wee hours of the night and was a true reflection of this amazing couple.
