We are so excited to finally share with you our son Caleb and our lovely daughter in law Chelsie’s, gorgeous barn wedding featured in the recent issue of Wedluxe Magazine. On a hot August day, our family and friends helped us celebrate their commitment to each other. Caleb and Chelsie met when they were youngsters, competing against one another in the equestrian sport of barrel racing. It was no surprise then, that Chelsie would want the wedding to reflect their love of horses. When discussing the design of the wedding, Chelsie expressed to me two major components that were important to her.. Firstly, she wanted an elegant affair and not the cliche’ western cowboy type wedding some may have expected. Second, Chelsie wanted a colour palette of coral’s peachs, with just a hint of tiffany blue. It was a great starting point, and from there we were able to start to design an elegant ‘town and county’ type of look. Many of our Toronto industry friends stepped up to assist us and were so gracious in helping pull this beautiful day off. Beautiful images by Mango Studios still take our breath away and we are still touched by the the helpfulness and attention from wedding planner Laura from Laura & Co. Events. We can hardly thank her enough for her devotion to this day along with her expertise. Also thank you to our dear friends Marvin and Wendy for allowing us to use their spectacular barn.
Memories of Matt and Melissa’s lovely summer wedding at Appleby College in Oakville leave us longing for the warm sunshine and all things pretty. Beautiful Melissa employed by the college, was excited to see what we could do to transform the private schools’ cafeteria into an elegant dining space for her reception. The room was transformed by our draping team with soft sheers and a stunning backdrop. Our floral team prettied up the space with summer flowers in shades of pinks and creams. The bridesmaids held elegant bouquets loaded with roses, lysianthus, and fresh greens. The days events were coordinated by our dear friend Laura from Laura & Co. and certainly no detail was overlooked. We were thrilled when the very talented Blynda Decosta shared these lovely images with us and on this chilly winter afternoon, we are happy to brighten up your day by sharing them with you.
We were thrilled to see Cristina and Ricardo’s pretty white wedding pop up on Wedluxe and thought we would share it with you too! Beautiful Cristina loves white and from our first consultation it was clear that this would be the colour palette choice for her flowers and decor. The fairy tale summer wedding was created with soft draping and beautiful white flowers. The mint bridesmaids dresses added a pop of colour. The Atlantis Pavillion was detailed with elegant oversized martini glasses filled with roses and hydrangeas that graced the guest tables. Our white rosettte overlays added texture and style to the table tops. Thank you to When He Found Her for sharing these lovely images with us! I love the softness in each photo!

The London Hunt Club in London, ON was the venue of choice for NHL player Matt Halischuk and his gorgeous bride Erins’ stunning garden wedding featured in the recent issue of Elegant Wedding Magazine.

Matt’s plays for the Winnipeg Jets and many of the groomsmen are hockey players playing for various teams in the organization but there was no competition on this special day. Surrounded by friends and family this lovely couple expressed there love for one another and if the truth be known, I might have just shed a tear or two. I had come to really enjoy my creative meetings with Erin and her mom. She is just one of those girls who is truly as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. Our team fully draped the London Hunt Club to give the room an intimate feel. The large elegant floral arrangements were styled in oversized glass vessels with the stems exposed to give a garden feel to the ceremony and reception. Our custom panels were accented with the couples monogram and created a beautiful backdrop for the reception.
