This wedding couldn’t be more fairytale-like if it tried. With its lunchtime reception complete with high tea and a venue worthy of any once upon a time, it’s safe to say every image snapped up by Rowell Photography and Roth Photo looks like a dream. More specifically, a dream come true for two sweethearts and their could not be more perfect day, and it’s all sitting pretty right here.
From the Bride… We had the most wonderful wedding day. It was everything we could have wanted, and to share this day with the people who mean the most to us was very special. We have such a great family and such amazing friends. Our wedding was small and intimate, just 36 guests at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel for the ceremony and high tea afterwards. Our family and guests were blown away (as were we) by the amazing creative designs and production that David and Rachel Clingen created for our wedding. We wanted a soft English garden feel only indoors, with hints of vintage style. Our favorite piece from the wedding would have to be the flower petal aisle that Rachel Clingen created for us. The swirling design grabbed everyone’s attention. Instead of an arch at the front of the aisle we had two dressers filled with flowers like little gardens with giant floral displays on top.
Because we had a lunchtime reception and high tea we wanted the colors of the florals to be light, the tablecloths and chair caps to be dainty and with such a short intimate guest list we wanted everyone sitting at one long table. All the teapots and teacups were mismatched floral and butterfly patterns which made the very light colored table pop with color. Our accent color was grey, it matched the sash on my dress, Ryan’s tie, the dog’s bow, the stationary and cupcakes. Guests took home our cupcakes as favoris which were cookies and cream flavoured with a grey and white criss cross lattice pattern on top in fondant and a single heart.
