Happy two-week anniversary to Mattea and Mike, and to Jaclyn and Thomas, 'my' first weddings of the 2017 season.
Both couples chose to host intimate, family-focused events at the University Club and Fete Events, respectively.
Close friends and family joined each pair to celebrate on a rainy but beautiful Saturday downtown. Love, fun, music and food (and a bit of the bubbly) took centre stage as the couples said 'I do'.
Mattea carried roses, rancunculus, and lisianthus in blush, ivory and white
Mike wore some of the same blooms as a boutonniere
And we went a little bit more 'wild' and varied with the table centrepieces and ceremony flowers.
Jaclyn and her maid of honour carried white and ivory bouquets of peony, lisianthus, and rose, with trailing ribbon streamers. Ontario rancunculus were at their peak, so I had to pop in a few!
The groom and best man wore ranunculus with a simple ribbon knot
The flower girls wore crowns of greenery
A couple of vases and some garland in the windows were all it took to set off the beautiful loft space at Fete events (Jaclyn's friends carried the garland from ceremony to reception at Olivea and decorated the family style dinner table. Gold stars to the 'garland wranglers'- those things can be beasts!)
The newlyweds were kind enough to leave lovely google reviews- spread the word to anyone who needs some romantic wedding flowers for their big day.
Wishing many happy years and awesome adventures to the newlyweds! Thank you for letting me take part in your wedding day!
Special thanks to Nina at Queen's University Club, and Leanne at LSP designs for the inspiration on column and vase setup- when Mattea and Mike had to move their ceremony indoors, we had to do some fancy footwork to replace the University club garden setting! (and keep the exit sign from photobombing the couples' vows) And sincere personal thanks to Claire, who very graciously helped me navigate my first trip to Fete.
