This Sailboat E-Sesh is the Definition of Glamorous

Glitter, gold and glasses of bubbly are always a welcome combo here at SMP, and when that glam package comes in the form of a stunning sailboat e-sesh from Simply Lace Photography, well… sign us up. From the beautiful bride’s crazy cool Le Chateau gown to the breathtaking cityscape that is Toronto, this is a gallery totally worth perusing. See it all in THE VAULT.

From the Bride… They say everything happens for a reason…especially when you least expect it and that is exactly what happened when Kyle and I first met. We unexpectedly met at the gym we both attended in June 2010. The first date Kyle took me on was the best date of my life and that night I fell in love with the man I was going to spend the rest of my life with!

Our proposal… It was New Years Eve, Dec. 31, 2014. We decided to have a relaxed NYE and just stay in, cook a delicious dinner and then go for a walk along my favourite trail where Kyle decided to pop the question! He took me by complete surprise…took out the most beautiful ring and my best friend asked me to be his wife. It was the best night of my life (so far)! NYE will always hold a special place in our hearts.

We are getting married next July at The Lake House in Pickering, ON. Our theme is “Nautical Glam.” We love being out on the water, so the venue just spoke to us as soon as we went and saw it! The advice I would give all newly engaged couples would be to start the planning process early! Give yourself ample time to book all the vendors you want (like an amazing photographer!), therefore you won’t get stressed and you will actually enjoy the planning process! Be realistic… know what you can afford and spend more of your budget on things you really care about. Finally, do some things yourself if you have the time… it adds such a special touch to your big day while saving some money! Most importantly, don’t forget to love each other and cherish every moment together and always remember why you are getting married in the first place!

We wanted our engagement photos to set the tone for our Nautical Glam wedding day! Bruna from Simply Lace Photography knew exactly what we wanted and we decided to do our photos on Kyle’s dad’s sailboat. Of course, the day of our engagement shoot, the winds were howling from the North and there was not a cloud in the sky… not the ideal conditions you want for engagement photos on a sailboat! However, Bruna handled everything like a pro despite never being on sailboat before! We are so lucky to have her as our photographer… our engagement photos exceeded every single one of our high expectations! We cannot wait for our big day and have Simply Lace Photography document our love story!!!!

Private Vow Renewal Under the Floral Abour

One thing I know for sure? Is that Andrew Mark Photography has a way with the lens that can totally transport you. Take Louci & Sarkis’s vow renewal as example. Because after one look in The Vault you’ll feel as if you were front row for their sweet vow renewal underneath the prettiest floral arbor ever. See it all here!

Al Fresco

From Andrew Mark PhotographyLouci & Sarkis renewed their vows under a stunning floral arbour with just a few of their friends their to watch. A small dinner reception took place under their favourite willow tree.

From Spunky Sapphire EventsWeddings are the beginning of new legacies and a celebration of a love story supported by generations culminating in a strong marriage. Inspired by the deep hues of summer and the heritage of a strong family, we focused on the classic style of a plantation and the unwavering love of the couple and their family. Under the arch her grandfather built and on land that has been in the family for generations, the couple renewed the vows that began their legacy: to love and care for each other and to work daily on building a marriage more beautiful than their wedding day. Heirloom china pieces lined long harvest tables for the anniversary dinner and were accented with the family’s glassware collection, modern gold flatware, and richly-hued florals dripping with greenery. Beautiful treasures of furniture dotted the landscape and provided guests places to reconnect and savor the celebration. Under a strong willow tree, husband and wife stole a moment to themselves to soak in the sight of their loved ones gathered together and to reflect on a day that will hold a place in their hearts forever.

Rainy Day Rose Gold Inspiration

How do you feel about rose gold? Well, I should warn you that you’re about to fall head-over-heels in love with said color like crazy. Captured by Julia Park Photography And Cinema this is one wedding inspiration complete with a stunning Ferré Sposa gown that you’ll want to pin pronto and we’ve got it all waiting for you in The Vault!

From Phoebe Lo EventsThis magical day was captured in its bohemian spring elements, with a display inspired by the organic fluidity of poetry with a touch of elegance and luxury. The subtle interplay between soft textiles and delicate metals, further suggested by the fine array of artisan dyed linens and silk ribbon, all blend beautifully into a splendid palette of rose gold, silver and gold.

Nestled upon the soft blush chiffon is an exquisitely crafted glass invitation suite, embellished with contemporary calligraphy produced by Velsie Mak. The elegant heirloom ring is presented by a handmade velvet ring box, custom made by Painterly Posies.

The serene outdoors was the perfect place for a charming sweetheart table setting, with a rustic floral landscape arranged by Secrets Floral Collection. Al fresco fine dining against the majestic backdrop of St. George Golfing Country Club welcomes spring in a curious and fanciful way.

Graced with a collection of fine china and delicate glassware from William Ashley, the rose gold cutlery delicately plays with the soft blush linen that further defines the coexisting vintage chairs for the couple seating. The soft palette of blush, ivory and yellow is encapsulated by the blooms and bouquets framing the scenescape. This romantic setting is accompanied by a collection of handcrafted artisan candles by Fenwick Candles, produced in an eco-friendly manner with all vegan materials and hand poured for each celebration.

Our bride features two distinct wedding gown styles prepared by Ferre Sposa with accent accessories by LUVYT. These beautiful gowns and accessories were stylized by Jennifer Dang, with the charming look completed by Makeup Designer, Velsie Mak and Hair Designer, Puzzle Creations. The celebration is furthered by a collection of sweets and desserts by Sinfully Sweet Co. A rustic log cake celebrates the charm of the scene, paired with a more elegant triple layered cake.

The thematic spring inspiration was represented by the natural sprinkling of spring showers, accented with the unconventional bohemian layout of the sweetheart table. In place of a traditional centerpiece, the tablescape design was defined by asymmetrical floral and greenery. The castle-esque location showcases a variety of charming and unconventional spaces for wedding inspirations. From the age old architecture to the surrounding landscapes, each space embodied an unsurpassable elegance with very prominent notes of historical and bohemian pieces.
