Orange and Purple Fall Golf Club Wedding in Canada

Stephanie and Stephanie were married at Golf Saint-Raphaël  in L’Île-Bizard, Quebec, Canada on October 5. Both brides wore a-line gowns. One bride went for a strapless dress with ruching on the skirt, while the other opted for a gown with a lace, sleeveless bodice.  Their ‘maids donned a mixture of deep purple and bright orange one-shoulder dresses, while the male in the wedding party looked dapper in a gray three-piece suit with an orange tie. The ladies carried bouquets of orange and purple calla lilies and roses. Stephanie and Stephanie tied the knot outside with the beautiful fall foliage as the backdrop. An adorable ring bearer carried a suitcase with the wedding bands down a petal-strewn aisle. “Looking at each other at the top of the aisle, with everyone turning around to see us before walking down to be wed,” Stephanie recalled. “It was a very emotionally intense moment.  Anticipation, excitement, happiness, love, and so much more.”  The guests threw colorful paper planes at the couple as they recessed down the aisle. How creative! After the ceremony the 150 guests moved to a covered and heated patio for a cocktail hour. “Being able to hold both our ceremony and reception in the same venue was ideal for us,” Stephanie said. The reception took place inside the golf club and featured floral centerpieces that matched the bouquets, as well as decorated wine bottles. As a favor, everyone received a personalized wine bottle with both the brides’ names on it. They danced to a live band following dinner, and later indulged in a multi-tiered, rainbow-colored cake.  Stephanie’s best advice for soon-to-be newlyweds? “Don’t sweat the small stuff…you’re the only ones who will notice the little things. Guest are there to be part of your day and to party it up!” We love this advice!

 Christa and Adam were married on the beach at the Henlopen Hotel in Rehoboth Beach, Del. on July 5. The bride looked radiant in a one-shoulder sheath gown with her hair in a partial updo. She carried a bouquet of baby’s breath, hydrangeas, and alstroemerias. Her ‘maids donned short, periwinkle dresses and carried baby’s breath bouquets. The groom looked dapper in gray dress pants and a matching vest. He sported a purple and blue checkered plaid tie. His groomsmen wore gray dress pants, suspenders, and periwinkle ties. The intimate crowd of family and friends gathered on the beach to watch Christa and Adam exchange vows in front of a white arch decorated with flowers. Glass bubble terrariums filled with sand and hydrangeas served as aisle markers, and guests sat in white folding chairs. They blew bubbles at the couple as they recessed down the aisle! A reception followed at the hotel where guests enjoyed passed appetizers and champagne during the cocktail hour, followed by a delicious dinner. The reception included sand-filled candles, lanterns, and sea glass, among other beach-themed decor. The personalized napkins had the phrase “Eat Drink Celebrate” printed on them, and guests enjoyed a tier of sugar-coated brownies for dessert. The seaside day was full of love and lifelong memories were created.
