This wedding has the sort of energy I want to bottle up for my own upcoming nuptials. Lustre Events transformed the Miller Lash House into a colorful creation, full of festive balloons, succulents, sweet treats and plenty of peonies and if I'm swept away with Lavish & Light's photos, I can only imagine how guests felt. Patrick Hodgson got it on film and this bright bash has me eager for sunny days ahead.

From Lustre Events... The bride, Ivonne, and the groom, Alex, met 11 sweet years ago at university orientation on the very campus that Miller Lash House is located at. They have come so far together, and are so sincerely and deeply in love. Planning a day to reflect their special relationship they could remember forever with their loved ones was something we didn't take lightly. It was a labour of love we were honoured to have been tasked with.

Ivonne is elegant and stylish to the core, she knew she wanted their day to be "Romantic-Chic" from the start. Our inspiration was simple, it was them. The sophisticated manner they both present themselves with, and the real life example of true love and friendship they portray to all who know them. Miller Lash House has a stunning natural backdrop that we really wanted to embrace. It highlighted all of the pretty and feminine details scattered throughout the day.

Guests arrived for the ceremony and were greeted by a fresh and tasty Italian soda station to stay refreshed in the hot sun. The aisle was lined with some of the many hundreds of gold glitter hearts made by the bride. A floral and moss backdrop and gorgeous garland created the perfect setting for them to make it official!

Cocktails followed on the patio with a delicious and creative menu we collaborated with Daniel et Daniel. The food was flawless. A big cheer for our "Mobile Charcuterie" tray that was a huge hit! A canopy to shade guests was adorned with foliage and ribbon and more of those cute glitter hearts surrounded the patio on the grass. What a perfect ambiance to get the festivities started!

The reception tent was pure magic. The natural wood harvest tables and farmhouse chairs were just right to offset the coral and pink perfection Blush and Bloom created for the tables. All the fluffy peonies and garden roses were to die for in the gold and glittery vases. While we're on the subject of the fabulous flowers, was this bouquet not a total treasure?

To create a magical atmosphere anywhere eyes could go, we also attached foliage to all the chandeliers and incorporated cafe lights with pops of pink to really bring home the "chic"! Oh those lovely balloons - the perfect highlight for the draped tent with the garland strung from them. The wood bar was complimented with a colourful backdrop and moss-backed marquee sign. Small details like the glitter placemats, topiary cloche place cards, and all the beautiful stationery tied everything together.

Guests feasted on multiple gourmet food stations and an affogato bar to top off dessert. The very impressive wedding cake anchored an out-of-this-world sweet table! The cake was packaged for guests to take "to-go" along with their personalized potted succulent favours.

Lavish and Light captured all the details and special moments impeccably. Don't get us started on the video Patrick Hodgson created! We'll all cherish this day forever. Though it was the kindness, respect, and genuine love Ivonne and Alex share that made this wedding so unforgettable!
