For this romantic, indoor garden wedding crafted by The White Book Company, it all started with unexpected inspiration… wallpaper. The result is a beautiful array of blush colored blooms by Hunt and Gather, a soft pastel color palette and elegant tablescapes infused with Anewall wallpaper. Richelle Hunter’s imagery and a film by Eric Frank Cinema are proof you don’t need the great outdoors to achieve gorgeous alfresco vibes.

Elegant and feminine were the words that Jamie first said when she came into my office looking for her dream wedding design..and that is exactly what we gave her and more! Inspired completely by nature and the incredible Blush Floral Wallpaper by Vancouver based designer, Anewall, we dreamed up this stunning soft and dreamy wedding design, full of lush blooms, natural greens and of course the perfect lavender details.
The couple picked the ever-so-luxurious, Langdon Hall for their wedding day to ensure that the 5 course menu would blow their guests away. Using the natural wood of the outdoor Summerhouse, we brought nature in with gorgeous greens and blooms installed around the beams to create the altar, along with large urns full of the same luscious flowers.
Lining the aisle, 8ft trees were brought in to create an enchanted forest feel, much like the Muskoka woods that the couple fell in love in! Placed next to Langdon’s cross back wood chairs, ivory petals and pillar candles lined the aisle to add that final element of romance. Guests were greeted upon arrival with a custom lavender, honey cocktail and were ushered outdoors to mingle and see the beautiful room we had created for them.
The welcome tables were lined with wooden troughs of lavender, showcasing a lantern card box and the bride’s mother’s guest book that they used to add new guest names to. Each guest was also given a cone of lavender made from the pages of love stories, perfectly matching the custom fabric love quote banner that is now a feature in their baby’s room.
The ceremony was truly magical as Jamie walked down the aisle to a string trio while looking absolutely stunning in her custom Valencienne gown, her gorgeous long hair done by Ladylyn Gool and her flawless makeup by Dawna Boot makeup. Of course, her baby bump adding to her stunning style! Jamie’s dress experience was definitely a unique one having found out she was pregnant 6 months before the wedding. Her original Berta Bridal dress could not be altered for her pretty belly, so to the rescue came Valencienne who created her new gown in less then 2 months!
After the romantic ceremony, guests enjoyed a greenery photo wall, hors d’oeuvres and more lavender cocktails while the couple had Eric Frank Cinema and Richelle Hunter Photography capturing their glam session.
Once welcomed into the Firshade reception room, guests were truly blown away.
The room was lined with three rows of wood harvest tables, a vintage lounge and of course an impeccable sweets table.
The long tables began with the custom wallpaper runner that inspired the entire design, layered with gorgeous blooms of different sizes from Hunt & Gather. Sprinkled throughout the blooms were candles upon candles to light the intimate evening.
Each guest received a pretty jam jar made by the bride’s mother. Their place setting was perfectly styled with layers of lace edged plates, gold cutlery and calligraphy menus by Ivory and Twine, tucked into white hemstitch napkins.
The sweets table was created as a focal point of the room with cakes painted with the wallpaper design and sweets layered in vintage dishes and wooden lavender-filled troughs. To ensure guests could enjoy the late night chocolate cocktails and cake, vintage lounge furniture from Fresh Look Design was placed around the sweets table.
