Modern Industrial Inspiration Shoot

Nestled in a restored glass factoryAs You Wish Weddings crafted this glamorous affair filled with texture. Complete with Ooh La La Designs sculptural air plants, architectural balloons, and a pendant installation, every detail redefines city chic. It’s modern made magical thanks to the lens of Simply Lace Photography. See it all in the gallery!

From As You Wish Weddings… Nestled in the heart of downtown Toronto lies 99 Sudbury, home to a restored Glass Factory turned versatile event space. With its exposed brickwalls, cubed glass windows, hardwood floors and loftvibe, 99 Sudbury was an ideal setting for this modern industrial inspiration shoot. We chose to style the gorgeous farmhouse table with clear vogue chairs to achieve a blend of warmth and elegance together with a refined city chic feel. A lot of texture and layers were added to the tablescape to create visual interest, using a combination of sculptural air plants and lush florals in mixed-metallic vessels. String lights draped behind the table set the tone of romance and celebration. To compliment the modern theme, geometric accents were weaved throughout the décor, including a stunning art deco ceremony backdrop, architectural balloons, and a hanging diamond pendant installation over the dessert table. We were enamored by the selection of dresses our bride wore from the Blush by Hayley Paige collection, featuring graphic lace, sparkly geometric cut outs, and sleek, unexpected touches of contemporary glamour. Behind the scenes glimpse into the day was filmed by Love Stories Films as a way to showcase the preparation and styling that brought our vision to life.

From Corina V. Photography… Colour palette was Whites, Creams, Blush Pink, Pale Green, Mocha and hints of metallic Gold.

Highschool Sweethearts Milanna and Mark decided they wanted to have a romantic and elegant wedding at the new Whistle Bear Golf Club. They particularly liked the clean white dining room and the blank canvas was the perfect backdrop for their Wedding Reception Dinner.

We wanted the beautiful Wedding Ceremony florals to set the stage and provide a soft romantic frame and floral backdrop. Roses in shades of blush pink and creams with large hydrangeas in dramatic white urns set the tone in church for their ceremony.

Following the ceremony, guests arrived at the picturesque Whistle Bear Golf Club for an evening of celebration and joyous festivities, they were introduced to a space transformed filled with Romance, Elegance and Style, showcasing a melange of tall and low tablescapes of lush, fragrant blooms and luminous candlelight.

The head table’s unique blush pink backing display of romantic flickering candles matched the blush pink linens and effectively transformed the area.

Milanna’s Italian Grandmother handmade all of the manicotti pasta for the pasta course for all 300 guests.

From Milton PhotographyMark and Stephanie met in the summer of 2006 working at Shawnee Slopes Golf Course, but didn’t start dating until the summer of 2008. They were both University students at the time, working there for their summer job and somehow connected – most likely over their mutual love of animals. Mark was on his career path to becoming a vet (or so Stephanie thought), and Stephanie was just finishing her political science degree. As plans often change, Mark is now a geologist for an oil and gas company and Stephanie works as an Education Coordinator for the Alberta Health Services.

Mark proposed while the couple were living in Edmonton, on November 28, 2013. Mark was finishing up his Geology degree, so Stephanie was very surprised as she did not think they would get engaged until Mark was finished school. Mark had planned on proposing a few weeks earlier when the ring came in, but Stephanie just to happened to be sick. Mark patiently waited and every day would ask Stephanie if she wanted to go outside for a walk with the dog, but everyday she said no (it was winter in Alberta and Stephanie had a really bad cough). Finally, Mark couldn’t wait any longer so on a typical Thursday evening, Stephanie in her sweats on the couch, Mark put the ring on their dog’s collar and sent her over to see Stephanie. She realized after a couple seconds, as Mark came around the corner and got down on one knee, that there was her dream ring, on Koha’s collar!

Wedding planning began very shortly after. Stephanie chose her bridal party immediately (she basically already had the whole wedding planned in her head). Cassandra, her little sister was her maid of honor – no brainer. Krista and Amy were her two closest friends and Stephanie has known them both since about 5 years old. And finally Ashley, Mark’s sister and basically a sister to Stephanie over the past 7 years.

Mark on the other hand, knew who he wanted to be in his party, but as usual, putting things off until the last minute, finally asked his groomsmen about 4 months before the wedding. Derek would be his best man, whom he met through Stephanie when they first started dating. His cousin Ryan, University buddy Jeremy, and Greg, who he also met through Stephanie at the onset of their relationship.

As for bridal party gifts, Stephanie decided to buy the girls something they could wear for the wedding day, so she went with Kate Spade stud earrings in light pink, to match their dusty rose colored BCBG bridesmaid dresses. As pink is Stephanie’s favourite color, she also bought each of the girls a small bottle of sparkling rose and each a different shade of pink nail polish. Stephanie’s most favourite part of the gift to the girls was the super comfy kimono robes from Piyama.

Mark also bought the groomsmen accessories for the wedding day. A skinny black tie by Calvin Klein and they were each given different stripe pattern socks. Mark decided that the groomsmen also require a handy dandy book called, “The Art of Manliness.” Finally, each of the groomsmen received a bottle of their favourite liquor.

Mark and Stephanie agreed to not buy each other gifts for the wedding as they had just bought / adopted the newest member to their family a couple months earlier. Stephanie’s dad dubbed Koha (their three year old Boston terrier) the ‘engagement dog’ (instead of a ring) during his speech as they bought her when they moved to Edmonton together. Sauce was the ‘wedding dog’ as she was supposed to arrive right after the wedding, but they brought her home a few months earlier. Back to the gift, although Mark was not supposed to give Stephanie a gift, he surprised her with the cutest Marc Jacobs Boston Terrier shoes. His note with the gift was “So you can have Koha and Sauce with you all day today.”

For a wedding favour, Stephanie and Mark decided to make a donation to Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS), because of their mutual love for animals. In order to incorporate their own pups in the wedding, Stephanie decided to bake sugar cookies and decorate them as Boston Terriers and attach the donation note to the cookie packaging.

The wedding day turned out to be perfect. The weatherman was saying thunderstorms and showers throughout the day, but the rain didn’t start until everyone was indoors and cleared up just in time for some outdoor sunset photos. It was the perfect day! It was hard for Stephanie and Mark to choose a favourite part of the day, because everything was so perfect. The best thing about the day was the general feeling of love. There was so much love in the room all day long! The food, cake and drinks were pretty amazing too. And then the dancing. Stephanie told their DJ when they had their meeting that she would not be leaving until the lights came on – she loves to dance! Mark and Stephanie stayed until the very end of the night and do not regret it for a second.

Romantic Wards Island Beach Engagement

However much we go gaga over real weddings around here, there’s totally something to be said about the perfect e-sesh: it should be personal, intimate, beautiful, and this couple did it oh-so right. Captured by Blynda Da Costa Photography, this darling duo‘s waterfront snuggle sesh is everything an engagement shoot should be and more. Get lost in the full gallery here!


From Blynda Da Costa PhotographyJamie and Chris wanted something personal. They are getting married at his parents property in beautiful Collingwood Ontario and they are filling their wedding with personal little details to share with their family and friends.

Early this past spring, when we talked about locations for their upcoming engagement shoot, I suggested this spot without really knowing how much the couple really enjoyed it there. They love to hop on the little Toronto ferry with a bunch of friends in summertime with a cooler, beach blankets and bathing suits to spend the day away from the city on the adorable beaches of the Toronto Islands. As coincidence would have it – the location was a great match and the perfect way to commemorate their engagement in the city they fell in love in and in a spot that was close to their hearts.

Toronto has easy access to a collection of little islands just a few minutes off the shore of downtown in Lake Ontario. They are not-so-hidden, but nonetheless quiet little gems in the city! The 10 minute ride on a quaint little ferry gets you to another little peaceful world surrounded by water without the hustle bustle of the city and sound of cars and buses flying by! Ward’s Island is a favorite spot for many Torontonians, but still retains the quiet charm of a private little island.

Romantic Summer Wedding at Nestleton Waters Inn

We first met this gorgeous couple when they got engaged a little while back (seriously, is this real!?), and now we’re lucky enough to see even more romance with their wedding right here, once again captured by Photographs By Caileigh. Their elegant affair was full of burgundy and blush beauty and these pics are truly a fairytale happily ever after if I do say so myself.

From the Bride… It was love at first sight for me. The moment I saw Taylor I instantly fell in love with him. He is the funniest guy who has me laughing every single day. He makes life so vibrant, beautiful and fun. I know my life will be filled with non-stop laughs and fierce love because of him. I am beyond privileged to be his wife.

From Photographs By Caileigh… I feel so honoured to have been a part of Stephanie and Taylor’s wedding. My favourite part of their day was documenting their first look on the dock at Nestleton. It was such a special moment for the two of them to share, as they wrote and recited letters to each other after seeing the other for the first time on their wedding day.

Their wedding was a great time for all. The ceremony was short and sweet, and S & T’s “love bubble” was undeniable. Best of all, I don’t think a single guest missed out on the dance floor! Everybody was just so thrilled to be there to celebrate these two amazing people.
