This wedding is proof that breaking away from the traditional wedding format is sometimes the best thing ever! When I first met with Robin & Deandra, it was obvious that a typical wedding day was not their thing. They wanted a no fuss, relaxed and authentic celebration, to take place in the afternoon surrounded by an intimate group of family and friends. And that is exactly what they got! Robin, a hockey player from the Czech Republic, spent most of their engagement living in Europe, and so the couple really put their trust in our team to create their dream day while they remained fairly hands off. And let me tell you....when you have a Bride & Groom that has complete trust in their vendors with their vision, the results can be extraordinary! I loved every minute of working with this couple & their family (big shout out to Elaine, the Mother of the Bride, who quickly became one of my favourite Mom's of the season!), and loved every bit of their wedding day.
Taking place at the beautiful Starling Lane Winery, and surrounded by just their closest family & friends, the wedding of Deandra & Robin was a special one. Guests were treated to a modern garden party, filled with great music, creative comfort food, and fun games. The word "raw" was in our minds while designing the florals with FLEURtacious, and boho design touches helped the day feel grounded, un-fussy and true to the couple. The spring palette of blushes, peaches & blues were infused throughout the textiles and florals, and the stunning garden setting provided the perfect backdrop for great conversation and mingling.
One of the highlights of the day, was the non-stop live music provided by Noah Edwards & his band. Their folk sound provided the most perfect atmosphere for the day, and even had guests dancing by the late afternoon in the gardens. And the food stations, created by Toque Catering, were a HUGE hit! I mean...gourmet pizza, sliders & milkshakes? Can you get any more fun?!! The afternoon activities flowed seamlessly into one another, allowing the couple to celebrate with everyone as well as truly enjoy the day together! It was perfect!
