A Canadian destination wedding starring two Australian sweethearts is enough to get our attention, but when the lovelies at TOAST Special Events throw in a dash of shimmer, a lot of sparkle, and an ombré cake all with a bead embellished wonder from Jenny Packham, too? Oh, we’re just smitten beyond belief. Chances are, you will be too after you see all this and more in the gallery right here.
From TOAST Special Events… With 10,288 miles between us, Ana, our Australian bride, and I planned her Canadian destination wedding to the very last detail. With so much invested in this gorgeous couple, our calendars were marked for “the” wedding of the year! Ana and Nick set the tone with beautifully-engraved, acrylic, laser-cut invitations, which were encased in silver tins — by far the most gorgeous invites I have ever seen! Ana carried that light and airy look throughout her wedding with a simply white color palette, acrylic ghost card box, manzanita centerpieces adorned with crystals, delicious macaroon favors and finally “la piece de resistance” of the ombre cake-pop cake.
With a pre-honeymoon pit stop in Vegas, our little ray of sunlight flew in with her dashing fiancé a week before their big day. Rehearsals, taste tests and last minute vendor meet-and-greets made the week fly by. Ana and Nick said their vows in the St Theresa Roman Catholic Church. Celebrations continued at the timeless Chateau Laurier, where the couple shared a lifetime of moments, which we believe were celebrated to perfection!
