Kimberly and Jeremy were married at Cedarhill Golf and Country Club in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada on May 18. The bride donned a strapless lace fitted gown, and pinned back her soft curly hair with a feathered pin. She carried a soft bouquet of ivory roses, blush peonies, and greenery. Her ‘maids opted for floor-length deep blue one-shoulder dresses. The groom and his men looked dapper in classic black tuxes. The pair exchanged vows in a light-filled tent outside in front of just 75 guests. “We wanted a small wedding, close to our home. It was recommended to us by another couple because the food is amazing!” Kimberly said of the wedding venue. A reception followed inside the golf and country club, where guests sat at round tables covered in crisp white linens. They were greeted at their seats by a thank you note on navy blue stationery and tulip centerpieces. Kimberly’s favorite DIY detail? The re-purposed wine bottle chalkboards used as table numbers. Guests danced the night away, and ate some amazing food of course! See the full board here.

Lisa Marie and Selim were married at Kretz Estates in Burlington, Ontario, Canada on June 14. The bride wore a gorgeous flowy dress with a beaded bodice and chiffon skirt. It was handmade from fabrics found at the grand bazaar in Istanbul, Turkey. She donned a high curly updo accented with crystal hair pins and carried a large bouquet of purple roses and greenery. Her ‘maids looked stunning in mix-and-match deep v-neck dresses. The bridal party also had their hands painted in henna to honor Selim’s Turkish heritage. The groom looked dapper in a gray three-piece suit, while his men wore gray dress pants, suspenders, and purple bow ties. The pair tied the knot in front of 100 family members and friends that traveled a great distance from many places to be with them on their special day. They exchanged vows under an arch made of branches and adorned with bright flowers and white tulle fabric. A reception followed at the estates. “We hand made our wedding ourselves from our wedding favors, bouquets, center pieces, wedding arch, invitations…It was really lovely getting to be so involved and have the little details be exactly how we pictured,” Lisa Marie described. Their reception decor featured a display of Polaroid pictures of the newlyweds, paper lanterns, and a big wire heart topped with flowers and a photo of the couple’s engagement. Guests sat at long tables with white linens, brown place mats, tiny birdcages, and chalkboard table numbers set inside mini succulent tins. “We found a lot of inspiration through Instagram and Pinterest , we fell in love with the more bohemian/DIY weddings,” Lisa Marie says of their wedding inspiration.  For dessert, guests indulged in a cupcake-shaped cake decorated with white rosettes and purple polka dots. Lisa Marie encourages DIY projects, but not too many. “Pinterest is a great source for inspiration, however thinking you can complete X number of projects on your own is somewhat wishful thinking,” she said.

Tricia and Adam were married at Holland Marsh Winery in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on September 1. Tricia looked gorgeous in a ruched chiffon fit ‘n flare gown with a strapless sweetheart neckline. Her colorful bouquet featured coral and apricot roses, purple pincushions, blue delphinium, anemones, Queen Anne’s lace, dusty miller, brunia berries, and pittosporum. Her ‘maids donned long purple-gray chiffon dresses with various necklines. The groom and his men opted for a more casual look in light gray suits and lavender button-down shirts, without ties. The pair married outside as 140 guests looked on in white folding chairs. “For us, it was very important that our wedding was filled with things that we loved and reflected who we were as people,” Tricia said. “We didn’t want to end up doing things just because ‘That’s the way it’s always been done at weddings.'” The ceremony featured a drink station with a large chalkboard sign, where guests could grab flavored water on the way to watch the couple tie the knot. The aisle was marked with hydrangeas, roses, and Queen Anne’s lace. A reception followed at the winery, where guests sat at round tables featuring floral centerpieces in mason jars atop wood slices. “We had a conversation and listed all of the things that we loved and hated about weddings that we’d been to,” Tricia said. “Then we just kept all of the things that we loved, and chucked the things that we hated. With that, we had the perfect blueprint for our day.” Guests were given shoes for the dance floor and indulged in a sparkly tiered cake made by the bride’s aunt, adorned with a custom topper. “Remember that if you’re happy, then all those who love you will be happy too,” Tricia said.

Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Photos: Bonnallie Brodeur – PhotographeVenue: Les Ancêtres, Auberge & RestaurantBride’s Gown by Jenny Packham; Officiants: Benoit Turcotte and Claire Diaz Oriz

Lara and Louis were married at Les Ancêtres, Auberge & Restaurant in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada on August 17. The bride wore a sparkly, 1920s-inspired gown by Jenny Packham with a braided up-do. She accessorized with metallic platform sandals. The groom donned a classic black tuxedo with a white rose boutonniere.  “The ceremony was simple, led by two of our close friends,” Lara said. “And our 18-month-old son was up there with us the whole time.” After the ceremony, the couple’s 160 guests sat at long tables where they enjoyed the scenic view. “Our main goal for the wedding–lots of speeches, including spontaneous fake opera, a few surprise dance offs and late night courses of food to keep the energy up,” Lara said. After dinner guests enjoyed a two-tiered buttercream-frosted cake topped with flowers. There was more to satisfy guests’ sweet tooth- a candy buffet complete with take-out boxes for after-wedding munchies. “Neither of us had too clear of a vision for our wedding except for a very funny party with all our loved ones,” Lara said. It seems as though their wish came true! See the full board here.
