We were thrilled to have our autumn wedding creative featured in Wedluxe Magazine and are so excited to share it with you. Together with our dear friend, wedding planner Laura from Laura & Co. Events and a wonderfully talented team of Toronto wedding vendors including the very talented Sam from Visual Cravings who photographed this lovely creative, we brought to life the beauty of a rich autumn wedding display. Fresh fall blooms loaded with romantic hues of merlots and rouges were used for our spectacular ceremony chuppah and table scape. We use over 1000 stems of orchids for this spectacular display in a beautiful barn, found in Flesherton, Ontario. I loved the blend of rustic vintage accents mixed with elegant crystal and brass.

What a pleasure to work with Jessica and James for their summer wedding at The Manor in Aurora. They both were amongst the sweetest of clients that I have worked with! I adore Jessica’s choice for the floral colour palette. A combination of dark and light purples, bold pinks and even corals create a vivid and fresh statement for the flowers and decor. The out door ceremony was simply decorated with two stunning florals that created a lovely focal point against the beautiful natural setting back drop. Our team transferred the pieces father the ceremony, to create a pretty backdrop behind the head table. The colourful centrepieces were the finishing touch to the newly renovate room at the Manor. A very heart felt thank you to White Photographie for sharing these stunning images with us. We have shared a few weddings together now and I LOVE their work!

On a crisp Toronto winter day in February, we rolled up our sleeves to design Heidi and Sam’s stunning art decor inspired wedding at the beautiful Four Seasons Hotel. It was indeed a sight to behold. No detail was overlooked and we were thrilled to work with such a wonderful couple and family. The flowers and decor were over the top.. if we do say so ourselves! Our custom gorgeous chuppah created an impressive focal point for the ceremony and our contemporary tins that lined the aisle were loaded with opulent phaleaonopsis orchids, roses and hydrangeas. The reception left guests breathless with our towering lucite candelabras and rows of glowing candles. Heidi and Sam ate their first meal as husband and wife under a collection of crystal chandeliers and romantic canopy. Guests also enjoyed the finest of dining by the impeccable service from the staff at the Four Seasons Hotel. We lined up the best in the industry for this one, and among them, was Sam Wong from Visual Cravings nailed this one with his incredible photography along with Palettera who designed the amazing custom stationary. Wedding Cordinator Shealyn Angus from Bliss Events kept things running smoothly and was a pleasure to work with.

He is loving, he is faithful and he is strong and I’m pretty thankful to be married to his son. Dad Clingen is one of a kind, and on a lovely evening in June on our little farm, we were able to focus on our family and celebrate together, his 80th birthday. When we think of Dad we can’t help but think of the verse in Corinthians that says ‘stand firm in the faith, be courageous, be strong, and do everything in love’. His constant love, his strong leadership and his love for God cannot be missed and we wanted to celebrate our wonderful heritage and the legacy he has set. It was a special time as David’s brother, John and his family, who do missionary work along the Mexican border in Yuma, Arizona, were able to be here to celebrate this wonderful time. We seldom are able to be all together so it was fitting to have it photographed. A very heartfelt thank you to Mike and our friends at 5ive15ifteen who shared their incredible talents with us and captured the beauty of this special evening. The custom cake was by Kake Studios and let me tell you, it was so very delicious. A last minute phone call to our friends at Paper and Poste and voila, gorgeous menus were ready for pick up! You guys really are the best in the industry! The sun set behind us as we enjoyed a lovely dinner from Cravings. Happy 80th Dad! Thank you, for your love, your guidance and your leadership.. Your one of a kind.
