From The Bride…From the moment we got engaged, John and I knew we wanted an outdoor summer wedding in the gorgeous backyard of John’s parents’ home. We loved the personal feel of hosting the wedding on family property – not to mention the idea of transforming the pool into a sophisticated dance floor. This made for some very memorable wedding photos!

On the morning of the wedding, my Maid of Honor and her Mom hosted a gorgeous bridal brunch with my favourite pastries and of course champagne mimosa’s! It really kicked-off the Wedding festivities and allowed us all to relax while our beauty team transformed us into goddesses. John spent the morning with his closest friends getting ready in the “white room”, sharing a few laughs and a special sip of scotch.

The theme of our wedding was garden romance. We chose a beautiful palette of colors (ivory, soft green, earl-gray purple and the IT colour “marsala”). The wedding was inspired by my dress, a unique Glacier Grey Tulle masterpiece by the oh so talented Elizabeth Dye. From the moment I began the search for The Dress, I knew I was different and that I wanted something no one else had.

To compliment my choice of colour, the gorgeous bridesmaids were in short ivory dresses – this set me apart from my gals. John wore a dapper black tux by Without Prejudice London and his groomsmen wore fitted grey suits, black Oxfords, and matching gray/purple ties. Surrounded by our closest family and friends, we said our vows in the quaint and historic Chapel on the grounds at Appleby College.

After Cocktail hour in the backyard, guests made their way to the tented reception where Catering by Heat served up a delicious locally-sourced family-style meal. With a lit-up plexiglass dance floor over the pool, 500 feet of green garland, modern seating on the lawn, and the warm glow of lanterns the night ended with dancing and laughter.

We are so grateful for all of our amazing vendors who, from the beginning, understood our vision and helped us bring it to life. Our day would not have been complete without Shelby Flynn from Fresh and Fancy Catering and Events who made sure everything ran smoothly and was more than accommodating throughout the entire planning process.

Becky from Blush and Bloom who did and unreal job on our gorgeous flowers, marsala peonies, earl-gray roses and all that breathtaking fern made our tented reception like something from a dream. Each table centerpiece had a pop of color that nicely contrasted with the gorgeous barn wood tables, burlap runners, mixed metal candles and gold chiavari chairs. Personal handmade moss table numbers and strawberry jam favours tied it all together.

The food was exceptional with special touches by Jennifer and her very talented team at Catering by Heat. The dance party would not have been the same without the live rendition of our favourite tunes – the Royz Band killed it!

Last but not least, we were so happy to have the oh-so-talented Corina V. Photography capture our special day and all the extra little moments – thank you for making it the best day and one we will remember for years to come!

From Whitney Heard PhotographyErin and Nicholas’s wedding was full of spring colours and soft light. The couple got ready at Erin’s mother’s stunning condo in Toronto. The bride had her girls with her to help get ready, which always kept a smile on her face. Each hairstyle was meticulously designed by Duyen Huynh, and wove in touches of florals to each girl’s hair. Erin wore a simple yet elegant ivory crown to compliment her loose up-do. Erin’s natural look was perfected by Cheryl Gushue, a top makeup artist in Toronto. Wearing jewel-embellished shoes, and with flowers in hand, the girls then went to James Gardens eagerly anticipating the first look.

James Garden is full of stunning flowers, willow trees, and glowing light. Nicholas sees Erin for the first time in private, with a short portrait session to follow. You can see how much they love one another by how comfortable they are in front of the camera together. The bridesmaids photos were taken next, followed by the groomsmen. Once the photographs were complete, the group got in their limo to start off to St. George’s Golf and Country Club.

The ceremony was short and sweet, with two tall trees, and large picture windows decorating the space. Cocktail hour started with a glass of champagne to celebrate the happy couple. As the guests mingled and chatted, the bridal party went back outside for a few more images, with the stunning St.George’s Golf Course as their backdrop! Throughout the day, both Erin and Nicholas were such a pleasure to work with, and the entire family was a joy to photograph!

Between the navy blue bridal party wardrobe, and the bright floral arrangements, this wedding holds so much inspiration for the playful spring bride.

Pretty In Pink Romantic Garden-Inspired Fall Wedding

Go ahead, pinch yourself, but I promise you you’re not dreaming—this beautiful wedding is totally real. With the help of Devoted To You Inc., Grace and Yulin’s vision for a wedding full of delicate details and soft floral touches came to life in the most gorgeous way. From the Groom’s surprise ceremony serenade to the jaw-dropping dessert table, you’re going to want to pin every photo of this wedding from Mango Studios in The Vault!

From Devoted To You IncGrace and Yulin met in university and had been in a long distance relationship for the past two years. They wanted their wedding to be intimate and had friends and families from all over the world attend. We curated the wedding to not only look beautiful, but also memorable to the couple by including the things they liked – such as their favorite food, and games that involved guests like The Running Man, which is an Asian hit TV show similar in concept to The Amazing Race. A wedding is about two people in love joining their lives together and we want to showcase that by incorporating things that both Grace and Yulin enjoy in their wedding.

Both the wedding ceremony and the reception took place at the most beautiful venues. Their first look and wedding ceremony took place at Graydon Hall Manor followed by a wedding reception at Estates of Sunnybrook. We teamed up with Nous Design Group and Megan Wappel Designs to bring Grace’s vision to life. We used Grace’s favorite flower – pink peonies as the inspiration of the design to create a spring wedding in the fall. Megan Wappel designed all the wedding stationery and the sweet table for the wedding – from invitation set to day-of stationery, including The Running Man game booklet. Guests teamed up and competed against each other to complete all of the challenges assigned. Photos were also posted on Instagram with the hashtag #yulingracebigday, which was showcased as a slideshow for everyone to enjoy in the evening. Gisele from Nous Design Group provided the design and décor service and brought Grace’s dream wedding to life. Our team coordinated the sourcing of vintage tableware from Plate Occasions where each guest had a unique place setting in various pinks and patterns, pairing with gold cutleries.

The sweet table created by Megan Wappel and Christina from Truffles was so picture perfect that everyone swooned over the beautiful delicious sweets. The couples danced between the sparklers under the stars. The wedding couldn’t have been any better.

From The Bride…Yulin and I always knew we wanted to incorporate the outdoors into our wedding, so when we found the McLean House, it was the perfect venue for a peaceful and intimate ceremony for 50 guests surrounded by the greenery. It felt like the middle of spring with fresh flowers blooming around. No one would’ve ever guessed it was the middle of an autumn September month.

The color palette was feminine and simple with blush and pink tones sprinkling through all aspects of the wedding from the table linens to the bridesmaids’ dresses to the desserts. The light tones complemented the all-white shell of the house, keeping a soft, graceful feel, whereas a darker color would have be too harsh of a contrast. I incorporated peonies everywhere I could since they were my favorite flowers so they would peek out from the bridesmaid’s bouquets, the centerpieces and even the invitation envelopes.

Yulin and I wanted to incorporate some fun aspects to our wedding to bring laughter and fun for our guests. During the ceremony, Yulin pulled out a guitar that he hid behind a bush and serenaded me in song for a full three minutes! He completely caught me by surprise so I serenaded him right back later that day during cocktail hour. Between the ceremony and reception, we created a scavenger hunt for our guests to complete. Some tasks included take a picture with a lady in white (not the bride), take a picture with an old couple, find a Yulin look alike, make a veil and bowtie, and buy Lindt chocolate. Proof of completion was to be posted on Instagram with the hashtag #yulingracebigday.

Our sweets table was the most popular. It was so beautifully arranged no one wanted to touch it at first, but once a macaron was snatched up, so did the cake pops and cupcakes because they tasted just as divine as they looked and there is always room left for dessert.

I had a vision of delicate details and soft floral touches and my planner Carmen Luk took in all I wanted and created the most stunning wedding. I didn’t need to worry for a minute on my wedding day because I knew everything was in good hands; I knew this was a day I could wholesomely enjoy with my new husband. I felt beautiful in my Vera Wang wedding dress, and custom Valencienne red gown. It was a picture perfect day that left me and my husband joyous and I wouldn’t change anything for the world.
