From The Bride…The day started bright and early when the makeup artists arrived to do hair and makeup for all my bridesmaids. Herman then came to pick me up and we did a Chinese Tea ceremony at both of our family’s house. We then went to Evergreen Brickworks and the ROM to take photos with the bridal party. The day went by in a flash and soon it was time to walk down the aisle!
After the ceremony, there were cocktails on the rooftop terrace on the reverse pyramidal stairs, which had a very unique architectural design. There were 6 cruiser tables wrapped elegantly in white linen placed along the steps and each had a centerpiece: a pearl topiary ball which were handmade by us, the bridesmaids and sister-in -law. There were 3 sets of couches and tables along the stairs. Each table had a small cube floral arrangement.
I wanted our wedding to be modern yet personalized with a touch of the DIY decorations that we made. The cake was designed to match the sophisticated and unique pattern on the ceiling of Malaparte. It was accompanied by a personalized dessert table. Lots of time and effort was spent planning this table. Each dessert was discussed in detail and designed with the baker at DT Bistro from colour to texture to taste. Glass bells, mini Phantom chairs and cake domes were purchased from Creative Bag and Ikea. Vases were purchased from BHLDN and flowers provided by the florist.
Each guest received a miniature white tin mailbox which had a small parcel and thank you card. The small parcels (Lindt chocolate) were all individually wrapped with a perfectly tied bow. The thank you card mimics a traditional letter with red and blue striped edges and it was designed and made by us.
We had such a great time at our wedding and was so glad that everyone could come and celebrate this day with us!

From Phoebe Lo Events…A dreamy celebration of romantic luxury and impeccable elegance, Lisa and Kelvin’s Graydon Hall Manor wedding featured an estate garden Ceremony paired with a terrace cocktail reception and followed by a formal a manor evening faire.
Couture attire and gowns were abundant, and a collection of high end vehicles were also present for the couple and bridal party’s transportation of the day. Our event design made use of a rustic charm motif that mimicked the manor venue’s existing design features in the areas of color hues, structure and pattern to further embellish the event space and environment. A variety of artistic and handmade elements also defined the couple’s love for hand crafted pieces and artful keepsakes that are unique to their celebration. This could be seen by the head piece and jewelry, as well as the fine art painted backdrop in the late night reception area.
Taking place on the eve of Mid-Autumn Festival, the couple welcomed a range of Chinese and Vietnamese traditions that represented their cultural backgrounds.

From Ruby Refined Events… This lush styled shoot was inspired by the soft and romantic colors of Provence, France. We imagined a modern and stylish couple who had snuck away carefree to elope in the most beautiful place you can imagine. Our venue was Maman Toronto, a gorgeous French café with the loveliest setup. Their plates, glasses, and dessert table setup just made us swoon.
The floral arrangements and bouquet were oh-so-dreamy and contained some of the biggest ranunculi we’d ever seen. The florist used wild thyme, a French herb, in terra cotta planters and in a bicycle basket to create a breezy aura of romance. The stationery and calligraphy were designed on watercolor paper with custom lavender ink to create an Old World look. Our linens were strewn lushly across the tablescape to invoke a carefree and wild sentiment. Stunning handmade soaps with lavender buds and dried flowers were created for the wedding favors.
Our couple was dressed to the nines! Our bride wore a white gown by Pronovias and a lilac gown by Narces, a local Toronto designer. The groom was decked out in a bespoke suit by The Dirty Inc., a local Toronto menswear designer. We loved the lilac, white, grey and navy that our models wore to pull everything together.
All of the stunning moments and details were perfectly captured on film by ARTIESE Studios, giving the entire shoot a warm and ethereal feel.
