Eden and Les first met and felt the spark at a Neil Young concert. Soon after, they attended a friend’s birthday party and really connected. The couple shares a carefree spirit and a love of partying, so they wanted an eclectic and electric wedding to suit their personalities. They dreamed of a natural, serene setting for the celebration. With the help of Karen Garscadden Consulting, they planned a beautiful wedding at the gorgeous lakefront venue, Palais RoyaleLuminous Weddings captures all of the day’s festivities.

Eden and Les love nature and the outdoors. They had a lovely photo session on the boardwalk with the lake in the background, and in the streets of Toronto in front of a colourful mural.

During the ceremony Eden and Les stood framed by a birch tree chuppah, right on the water’s edge, with Lake Ontario and blue skies in the background. Small birch bark pots filled with dainty white flowers decorated the space. Family prayer shawls were used at the ceremony, and for the covering the challah bread, which Eden’s 91 year old grandfather blessed.

From the Planner: Every detail had special meaning to the bride and groom. They made every effort to be inclusive and ensure that everyone who was important to them received a meaningful honour.

The reception area was decorated with graceful simplicity and touches of nature. String lighting hanging across the room provided the space with a soft glow. Guests found their names on seating cards that resembled wood bark and were displayed on rustic logs.  The tables were set simply with white linen and burlap runners from Around the Table. Centerpieces of tree bark slices were topped with a collection of little vases filled with florals from Wildflowers & Company. As guests took their seats and chatted, St. Royal Entertainment took the stage and played cool jazz. Conversations came to a pause as everyone watched and cheered while the bride and groom entered the room as newlyweds! It was a fabulous day full of celebration!

From the Planner: A rip roaring hora kicked off the festivities, with everyone on the dance floor, chairs in the air, body surfing and lots of spinning in circles! One of the highlights was seeing the bride’s 90 year old grandmother lifted above the crowd with her hands in the air & a smile on her face!

Alexa and Nick’s Elegant Wedding at Chateau Le Parc

Alexa was in high school when she fell in love with Nick. Nick being a couple years older than her was already in university at the time, but he joined her at the school prom anyway and the rest is history! When the two finally got engaged, JOY by Janice stepped in to help them plan an elegant wedding with a classic all-white theme. Mango Studios captures the gorgeous celebration held at Vaughan’s newest event venue, Chateau Le Parc.

For their first photo session as a married couple, Alexa and Nick visited Mint Room Studios. The all white room was the perfect backdrop for Alexa’s black hair and Nick’s noir tux.

The reception hall was dressed for royalty. Brick chandeliers shimmered from above, while tall candelabras and floating candles flickered on the tables. Royal Orchid Florist designed large centerpieces and short snow white bouquets. The tables were set with sparkling silverware and silver lattice plates ready to serve a heavenly meal. The dance floor was ready for the festivities with a floor vinyl featuring the couple’s name created by Axe Media Group. Alexa and Nick incorporated some fun Greek Macedonian traditions into their wedding, and placed a card on each guest table explaining the significance. Guests had fabulous time celebrating, dancing and taking part in the traditions!

Desiree and Matt’s Romantic Wedding at Sir William Mackenzie Inn

Desiree and Matt got married at The Sir William Mackenzie Inn, a historical venue in Kirkland, ON. The Victorian property was once the country estate of Sir William Mackenzie, a railway contractor known for building and owning the Canadian National Railway. The inn is surrounded by gardens and woods which set a serene mood and a scenic background for the talented photographers at Bows and Lavender to take photos. To fit the natural beauty of the estate, The Event Design Co. planned an elegant wedding with a soft colour palette of pure white, with hints of green and wood.

From the Planner: If you tried to imagine the perfect couple, the couple that would be any wedding planner’s dream, that would be Desiree and Matt. From the moment I met these two, I knew that their wedding was going to be one for the books. Their only request was that the day be fun for their guests, family and wedding party.

Guests gathered in a quiet wooded area for the romantic ceremony. Framed by a canopy with dangling white florals, Desiree and Matt said their I do’s under a garland of sweet paper cranes. After the first kiss as husband and wife, guests cheered and showered the newlyweds with natural confetti.

In the reception area, guests were invited to take a Polaroid photo of themselves to leave behind in the guestbook. Guests also received a tiny envelope of seeds as they found their places at the tables. Inside the large tent, the tables and chairs were elegantly dressed in pure white and accented with delicate florals designed by Greenery Patch. Everyone watched as Matt and Desiree entered and danced as a married couple for the first time. After an incredibly delicious dinner, Music Mania DJ Services ensured the guests filled up the dance floor and had a great time. It was definitely an unforgettable day for all!
