Cambium Farms Wedding | Amanda & Daryn

November 18, 2016

Cambium Farms in Caledon is honestly one of my favourite wedding venue in Ontario. This year, I got to work on 2 weddings here. One was Jeff and Kim’s wedding in the summer, and now Amanda and Daryn.

Amanda and Daryn both work as teachers in Egypt. They hired me to pull together their vision and style their wedding. It is always so great when my clients are able to trust me and work with even though they are so far away. I love it!

Amanda wanted the wedding to be elegant and romantic in this natural rustic setting. From the day she met, she had mentioned how much she loved her vintage inspired lace wedding dress. Rightfully so, when I saw her in her wedding dress, I understood! The lace detail was so romantic and the back of the dress was beautiful!!

With that, I had used that as the inspiration to work on her wedding. Together with the talented Cedar and Stone Floral Studio, we installed lace backdrop for her ceremony arch with florals on top to create a romantic vintage feel to it.

And don’t forget the beautiful bouquets that Cedar and Stone Floral Studio created for the girls!! It fit them so perfectly!

I also had lace laser cut table numbers created to dress up each table along side the lantern centerpieces. These table numbers were created by Wishful Studios and was perfect to sit on top of birch table number holders. To complete the entire look, we used burlap table runners with lace on top as well.

Both Amanda and Daryn love travelling. With that, they wanted to incorporate their love of travelling into their wedding as well. A world map printed on wood was used as guestbook. (most fitting I would say!) We also incorporated postcards from all their travelling as well as pictures of them travelling in their décor.

And last but not least, the super talented Crumb and Berry finished off with the most delicious and perfect cake and sweets for the couple.

Until the next wedding at Cambium Farms next year, this was definitely one to remember as well in my books!

Scarborough Bluffs Wedding | Katy & Conrad

November 3, 2016

I’m a huge fan of intimate weddings and cultural weddings. So when I received a referral for month of coordination inquiry to work on a Scarborough Bluffs wedding at a private residence, I couldn’t hide my excitement!! This 5000 sq ft home, perched on the famous Toronto Bluffs neighborhood had an amazing view of the water and the perfect setting for an intimate wedding ceremony.

The morning started with traditional Chinese ceremony, where the groom and groomsmen arrive to the home to “receive” the bride. Before they enter the house to see the bride, they were lined up and paired with 18 gifts – each symbolizing something special and meaningful in the Chinese culture.  The room is decorated in red sheets and double happiness sign, as red is considered a lucky colour. After the Chinese prayers, it was followed by the traditional tea ceremony.

When I saw the bride, I was speechless – she was so so beautiful in her custom made red Chinese wedding dress. The lace detailing on the dress was absolutely stunning!

After a quick change into her white wedding dress, the wedding ceremony began. With the string quartet in the background, and beautiful backdrop of the bluffs, things certainly can’t get any better!
