Caroline and Braden were married at the Distillery’s Fermenting Cellar in Ontario on July 12. The 7,500 square foot industrial chic space featured timber beams and trusses as well as original limestone walls, which were uplit with purple. The bride walked down the aisle wearing a sweetheart ruffled ball gown, accessorized with a jewel-embellished belt and hairpin against her loose curls whereas the groom wore classic black suit with a patterned tie. The ceremony was decorated with tree branches in urns and dangling crystals, and the reception was decorated with lots of candles in tall votives. Think gliz and glamour with a bit of Persian influence. Drummers played during their entrance and dancers performed during their exit. How fun!

Contemporary Purple Fall Loft Wedding in Canada

Nicole & John 

September 26 

Toronto, Ontario, Canada 

~~~~~~~~

From the photographer: “When I first met Nicole and John a few months before their wedding, I knew right away that we were the perfect match for each other. Their vision of an elegant and classy wedding, without any pomp and circumstance came together perfectly at 99 Sudbury, their venue of choice for the reception. Their day started off with Nicole getting ready at the Royal York hotel in downtown Toronto, followed by a Catholic ceremony at a Croatian church, and a great party at 99 Sudbury. A Croatian band, and a band from Nova Scotia played live music until well past midnight. Enjoy the photographs!” — Andreas of Photography by Andreas

Candlelit Pink Summer Barn Wedding in Canada

Posted by Caitlin on Aug 21, 2013

Sarah & Andrew

June 1

Ontario, Canada 

~~~~~~~~

From the photographers: “The rustic backdrop of Honsberger Estates in Jordan Station was the stunning location that Sarah and Andrew chose for their wedding day. If love is shown in the details, then Sarah and Andrew out did themselves in showing how special they are to each other.  From the burlap aisle runner to “made-with-love” preserves for guest favors to the wood-planked tables adorned with candle light, snapdragons, and rosebuds kept that elegant feel that Sarah and Andrew had hoped to achieve.  Every gorgeous detail was so beautifully put into place creating a warm ambiance for their friends and family to enjoy as they became husband and wife. 

The morning began with a surprise delivery of flowers to Sarah from Andrew as her aunt was putting the final touches on her classic updo.  After hair and makeup was done, Sarah personally handed out the bridesmaids’ bouquets complete with a added, personal touch – a gift of a brooch made unique to each bridesmaid. Meanwhile, Andrew and the groomsmen enjoyed getting ready at a friends house nearby.  Once the guys were ready, they had fun taking pictures complete with a vintage VW Beetle.  
 
The old exposed beams and embedded stone made for the perfect setting for their simple ceremony.  One of the highlights of the ceremony was when the guest were asked to join as they were led in a few worship songs that were close to the couple’s hearts, certainly a moment that will not be forgotten.  
 
For there formal couple pictures, we scouted out a field and grove of birch trees allowing Sarah and Andrew a moment to step away from the guests and enjoy a moment as husband and wife, capturing those intimate images that they had been dreaming of.  
 
As a special treat for their guests, Sarah and Andrew entertained their friends and family with a live band – The Postmen.  From fun dinner music to their first dance and some crazy fun on the dance floor, The Postmen kept the party rocking and did an amazing job.  To top of their amazing day, Andrew had a little secret that he had been planning for Sarah.  As night fell and the party came to an end, Sarah and Andrew got ready to exit with sparklers and guests waving goodbye.  Unbeknownst to Sarah, Andrew had arranged for some of the groomsmen to be hiding out in a local field with fireworks.  As they drove away, the sky was lit up.” — Mike and Jenny Vinson of VP Studios Photography

Vintage Chic Fall Ranch Wedding in Canada

Posted by Caitlin on Jul 29, 2013

Zoe & Craig

September 2

Alberta, Canada

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride & Groom:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one? 

We were looking for a venue that would incorporate both the vintage feel we wanted our wedding to have and be near the Rocky Mountains where we met, fell in love, and still love to hike and rock climb.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

I LOVED my flowers. I’ve always loved to make arrangements, so I loved the fact that I got to pick out the flowers I wanted and make the bouquets myself. They turned out better than I could have hoped! We loved the feel of our wedding. We wanted it to feel relaxed and flow together as if it was just a gathering of friends. We didn’t want a structured or unnatural day. We put out yard games and refreshments so the ceremony would just flow into the reception and the guests would feel comfortable to just mingle and enjoy themselves. We decided from the beginning of wedding planning that we wanted our wedding to feel handmade. We loved that when we looked around we saw our creativity expressed in every detail.

3. Give us the moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about. 

Zoe: I will never forget the moment when the ceremony was over, and we had finished our one-on-one time with our amazing photographers, Craig and I walked up to where our guests were playing yard games, enjoying refreshments, visiting with one another and laughing. The sun was setting behind them, and I remember stopping and just watching them. They all looked so happy and carefree. To have so many people I care dearly for all in one place, enjoying one another’s company was truly a mental snapshot that will stick with me.

Craig: My moment would be during the reception. Zoe and I watched and listened as her brother, whom we are both extremely close to, gave his speech and then followed it with himself, Zoe’s other brother, and her sister singing as a trio “Butterfly Kisses” in opera style. It was the funniest thing I have ever heard and remember laughing so hard with Zoe about while it was happening, on the ride to the airport, and still to this day. That moment of true joy together on our day along with her family was so memorable.

Whimsical Carnival-Themed Summer Wedding in Canada

Posted by Caitlin on Jun 25, 2013

Miquela & Jason 

July 2

Alberta, Canada

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one? 

We knew the second we saw the Blatchford Hanger that it was perfect. We wanted something different, sort of a blank slate we could work with. The setting of the historical park and the nostalgic feeling around the entire area worked for us. We also loved that we could open the space up to the outdoors for dancing!

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Jason had given me a card before the wedding. Inside was a little pin with a piece of toast and jam. It was so cute, and the perfect color, so I pinned it to the bottom of my bouquet. When I walked down the aisle and saw Jason, he had pinned the matching toast and peanut butter pin to his boutonniere. It was the best moment when we saw each other and realized we both had the pins– just a little reminder how well we go together.

2. We had so much fun going around the city taking photos with the wedding party! We stopped in antique shops, candy stores, clothing boutiques, the old midway– whatever we saw that looked fun. Everyone was so wonderful, allowing us to take over their businesses for a few minutes to get some good shots. While we walked from place to place, strangers were cheering, people were clapping, cars were honking – it was so nice!  

3. We had set up a blank canvas at the reception and asked all of our friends and family to paint a little something on it throughout the evening. Not knowing what the end result might be, we were left with a really amazing piece of art that now hangs proudly in our home. It’s the best reminder of our day; full of love from the ones we love.

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding you can’t stop thinking about. 

Our first dance! I didn’t know, but Jason had organized each place setting to have a candle with a note saying “ Please help me surprise Miquela during our first dance by lighting this candle. Each candle represents a special moment we have shared with each one of you, and I am hoping we can create ONE moment together we will never forget….” Needless to say, when we started our first dance, and I saw candle after candle light up around me, I was totally surprised and overwhelmed with emotion. It was a very surreal moment, and a memory that I will never forget.
