A minimalist, neutral design by Toast Events + a laid-back, vibrant, hilarious couple + an urban rooftop breezy summer day was the perfect concoction that was Liz and Ryan’s wedding day. To top it off, Liz with the assistance of her sweet mom baked her own wedding pie to enjoy with Ryan later than evening as they danced the night away to Celine Dion classics at the Andaz Ottawa Byward Market hotel.
One of the most heartfelt ceremonies I’ve ever experienced was at Camille and Joey’s garden-inspired wedding in Hawkesbury. The officiant asked everyone witnessing to pause for a moment, look at their loved one next to them, hold their hand and truly feel the love emanating in the air as they all witnessed Camille and Joey’s vows. It was remarkable how almost everyone there teared up, smiled at the person next to them and breathed happiness all over. They took a few moments to reflect their own lives and experiences and sent an abundance of positive and loving vibes over to the bride and groom by this simple act. One of the most touching experiences at a wedding!
What an honour it was to be part of such a special day with Genevieve and Jason! After a two year-engagement and going through several life challenges together as a young couple, these two kind humans committed to one another amidst their favourite people with the blessings of their adorable son, Loic.
We wanted to celebrate our 7 year anniversary doing something fun together, but without baby on board as the third wheel. So we had our moms pull double duty to babysit Hayat while we re-experienced what it felt like to sleep in after 6:30am and not worry about poop explosions or nap times. I meant, the baby’s poop explosions and nap times…no one else’s!
Emma and Tim wanted an elegant yet exciting affair amongst the closest of their family and friends, so the Renaissance Events Venue, Kingston’s oldest surviving church structure (built in the early 1800s!) amidst the urban downtown surroundings was the perfect location to host their guests coming in from near and far. With enchanted gold chandeliers, checkered marble floors and tall stain-glassed ceilings, this place gave just the perfect amount of glamour to their wedding. Tapered off-white candles lined the centre of the long harvest tables and green succulents were placed on each table setting as a wedding favour for each guests. The design was just so simple yet glamorous. My favourite combination!
