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

Melissa and Jay were married at Distillery District in Toronto, Canada on October 18. The bride looked flawless in a one-shoulder silk satin ruffled gown and a relaxed wavy updo. She carried a bouquet featuring garden roses, viburnum berries, and ranunculus. Her ‘maids opted for various short navy blue dresses of their choosing. The groom and his men looked dapper in dark blue suits, and the groomsmen wore suspenders without a jacket for a more casual look. “The venue inspired me. Distillery was on of the first places Jay and I went and I fell in love with the look and feel of the whole area,” Melissa explained. The aisle was lined with candles and the 120 guests sat in brown chiavari chairs. A light installation projected the couple’s names onto the exposed brick wall. A sign was placed at the beginning of the aisle that read “This is where our story begins.” Melissa’s favorite singer/songwriter also performed at the ceremony, which was a gift from the groom. Melissa got a lot of her decor ideas from the distillery itself. “We went with a them of pretty and gritty,” Melissa said. “And we had a natural backdrop of exposed brick, pipe and cement and I just wanted to enhance the natural beauty of the venue with lighting and flowers.” The two exchanged vows under a beautiful chandelier, with a reception following in the same space. Guests found their seats on a framed escort card display accented with twinkling lights. After dinner, the couple cut the naked cake and Melissa changed into a short, scalloped lace party dress for dancing. Her advice for engaged couples? “Don’t sweat the small stuff. The day is about love – so enjoy it.” See the full board here.

Laura and Daniel were married at the groom’s parent’s backyard in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada on September 14. “We wanted our wedding to be relaxed and fun,” Laura said. The bride wore a sweetheart lace a-line wedding gown with a keyhole back, accessorized with an ivory sash and fingertip-length veil, while the groom kept it casual with a white button-up shirt, vest, dark-washed jeans, accessorized with no tie. Notice her cowboy boots? Bridesmaids wore mix ‘n’ matched short mint green and teal dresses and carried bouquets of roses, berries, eucalyptus seeds, and baby’s breath. Fun fact: All of the floral arrangements were created by Quik Pik Flowers, where Laura works. “I wanted the ceremony backdrop to be of the mountains and open field because those are two things that we really love being surrounded by,” she said. “All 165 of our guests were people we were so happy to be surrounded with.” Following, guests were directed to the tented reception through a pair of repurposed barn doors and escorted to their seats via cards on clothespins. In lieu of a traditional guest book, well wishes were written on pieces of paper and placed inside a metal watering can. Tables were decorated with white linens, burlap runners, mason jar centerpieces atop wooden slices, chalkboard table numbers, and family photos. “We had an open mic, which was very successful and brought out a lot of great improvisational speeches that were so heartwarming,” Laura said. Later on, the newlyweds performed a special dance to “Proud Mary.” And they got it on video too! See the full board here.
