The Kind of Wedding You Look Back on and Still Love in 20 Years

This beautiful soiree embraces everything I wanted in my own big day… timeless, elegant and most importantly—one that my kids would look back on and not cringe. Planned and designed by Rebecca Chan Weddings & Events, this day transcends the trendy with it’s simple, effortless detailing. Julia Park‘s imagery will sure make for one beautiful album to flip through years from now.

From Rebecca Chan Weddings & EventsVictoria and Stephen’s day was all about soft romantic colours and effortless style. Their garden-inspired bouquets from Flower 597 were the perfect for their outdoor ceremony, while soft blooms in their centerpieces accented the tables (put together by the bride’s aunt). Complementing the venue’s old world elegance, we included gold vintage elements at the receiving table. To add an extra personal touch to the day, each table number featured a city that the couple had visited together, and a little dog trinket sprayed in gold let guests know of the donation that was made in lieu of favours to the humane society.

Classic With a Twist Toronto Wedding

That incredible moment when a bride and groom see each other for the first time at the ceremony is difficult to put into words. Luckily we’ve got photographers like Mango Studios who capture that joy to perfection. They were behind the lens at Lauren and Sacha’s big day and there’s so much more to see in the gallery.

From Mango Studios and Bisous Events…. Here at Mango Studios, we are blessed to have one incredible couple after another, and Lauren and Sacha were no exception! Both with radiant personalities, contagious laughter, and impeccable style, these two had one of the most unforgettable, Casa Loma weddings we’ve photographed!

Lauren and Sacha had a clear vision of their wedding day from the start – a day surrounded by friends and family having lots of laughs, and sharing stories over great food and wine. They knew they wanted an organic element to the day and were extremely keen to have an outdoor/indoor location, not so easily found in downtown Toronto. Luckily, the moment they both saw the gardens and a new glass Pavilion at Casa Loma their vision fell into place.

Planned by Jessica Hoang from Bisous Events, this wedding was filled with golden details, elegant decor and custom, white and blush florals by Coriander Girl. The ceremony took place in the gorgeous observatory followed by summer cocktails in the garden. All two hundred of their friends and family then danced the night away in the stunning greenhouse with hanging chandeliers and live music by the St. Royals.

One of the most memorable moments? The couple’s happy faces when they saw each other for the first time during the ceremony! The bride kept her Kleinfeld gown a secret from soon-to-be husband (as many brides do) but the groom also kept his custom suit a surprise for his bride. Paired with amazing music and their happy tears, I couldn’t help but tear up myself!

We really wanted to capture the essence of Lauren and Sacha’s dazzling personalities and tell a story of their big day and that’s why we took a candid approach to their wedding photography. By incorporating storytelling and editorial elements, we strived to capture their emotions and the warmth they shared with their family and friends in every shot.

Lauren and Sacha, thank you for all your wonderful smiles and stories on your wedding day! We wish you many long and happy years of marriage!

Follow a Creative Director’s Wedding Journey

‘Tis the season of proposals, so we couldn’t think of a better time to kick-off a wedding planning journey with our newest blogger bride, Paige of Studio Bicyclette. Paige is a creative girl boss with a total knack for styling so you can expect her big day to be off the charts. Scroll below to read her proposal story and hear what she’s got in the works for her DIY wedding!

MEET PAIGE

Hello, SMP-ers and fellow brides-to-be! Allow me to take a moment to introduce myself — I’m Paige, owner and creative director of Studio Bicyclette, former boutique owner, inspiration board obsessive and pink lipstick lover.

I help other lifestyle brands and boutique businesses find their magic, style their brand and tell their story through beautiful, strategic content, which means that I spend a good portion of my work days building dreamy inspiration boards and creating captivating content. But there’s one creative project I’m especially excited to dive into, which brings us to why I’m here today — my wedding!

THE PROPOSAL

My fiancé, Jason, and I got engaged just over a year ago, and after a fairly long engagement, we’re just starting to plan the details of the event, for which the date is set in August 2017. Jason and I met in the summer of 2013. We had decided to produce a short video called 90 Days that would celebrate summer in the city, and Jason was part of the video team that we brought on to work on it. It sounds a little cliché, but over the course of the weekend of filming our little on-screen romance, our real life love story began, and it was a bit of a whirlwind from there.

The wedding will be a small celebration at my family’s cottage in northern Ontario, and because of my background and love for all things styling and design, I’ll be doing a lot of it myself, along with the help of many of my talented local friends in the wedding industry that I have the pleasure of working with regularly, and who I’ll also be asking to share their own valuable insight with you as we embark on this journey.

THE WEDDING VISION

I’m excited to share the process of dreaming up the vision for the wedding as well as pulling together all of the details, and since I’ll be doing a lot of the DIY planning and styling, you can expect backstage access to what planning a smaller, fairly non-traditional affair looks like. We’re currently in talks with a taco truck for catering, my first wedding-related purchase was a flock of tiny, rose gold tipped swans, and I’ve made the decision that I’ll be working closely with a local designer to create my dream dress, so that gives you a sense of what to expect!

I have a pretty intense love affair with fresh flowers, disco balls and all things whimsical, so you can expect a lot of inspiration gathering, color palette development, and DIY projects that tie those elements in. I can’t wait to bring you along behind the scenes as I embark on this new adventure!
