Rachel and Michael's Wedding


Rachel and Michael’s wedding was absolutely stunning! From the beautiful city views at Palais Royale to the gorgeous lakefront, this wedding really extenuated what Toronto has to offer. Guests enjoyed cocktail hour by being serenaded on the large balcony with some elegant classical music while indulging in delicious hors d’oeuvres. After gazing at the breathtaking views of Toronto’s lakefront, guests entered the reception hall and were greeted with romantic lighting and eye-catching floral arrangements all throughout the space. As guests enjoyed their time, Rachel and Michael snuck out for a little while to take some absolutely gorgeous sunset photos, taken by the talented Assaf Friedman, on the boardwalk by the water. Every aspect of this wedding, ranging from photography to décor and more, really complimented the loving relationship Rachel and Michael share that everyone witnessed that day.

Fall Is Just Around The Corner!

With summer sadly coming to an end, we get to cheer up again with the thoughts of a beautiful fall wedding complete with all the radiant colours and whimsical sights and smells that encompass this magical season. To really capture it's beauty, here are some ideas and tips on how to mesh the wonderful traditions of a wedding with the sensational season of fall.

Photos
With fall weddings it’s important to capture the beauty of nature, so having your photographer take pictures of the bouquets and leaves will make for beautiful pictures.


Fall is a cozy season, so why not embrace the moment and cuddle up next to your love with a blanket? Take a look at this adorable shot!


Décor
Hues of deep purples and burgundy are beautiful, but make them pop with light colours to compliment them. A beautiful white pumpkin with gorgeous florals arranged on top will grab your guests’ attention as an elegant centrepiece. 


Dress style
Even if it’s not cold outside just yet, a long sleeve dress always captures attention. It looks elegant and reflects the feeling of fall all at once.




Favours
In keeping with the warm and cozy feeling of fall, giving your guests party favours that reflect the season, such as family recipes or comfort items are always a hit. Check out these cute jars filled with apple cinnamon jam and apple cider mix!

5 of Our Top Engagement Rings of 2016

The engagement ring is the first big purchase when getting married. It is the sign to show everyone you’re engaged and is a symbol of the next step in your relationship.

Here are our favourite rings of 2016!


We are going to start off with the most popular ring of the year, which is the beautiful and very elegant cushion cut! This ring has been taking social media by storm. With its elegant slim band and large face, this ring will definitely stand out on your finger!



We are going to move on to our next favourite! This year, colour has been very important! Why have plain white gold when you can have rose gold? These beautiful rose gold rings are definitely something to cherish! Not only is the colour unique, but it gives this ring a unique vintage feel.


Our next favourite cut is the beautiful circle cut diamond, which are very much in this year! With a similar look to the cushion cut, this ring has been just as popular.



Pear shaped rings have been very popular this year also! This ring has a very unique shape and is filled with diamonds! If you are looking for something new and different, this is definitely the ring for you.




Last but certainly not least, the rings with diamonds all around! These rings are covered in diamonds from head to toe. This ring has a very vintage feel and is perfect if you are looking for a rustic type wedding!

Cultural Traditions Around the World

Ever get tired of the basic wedding traditions like the bouquet toss or garter grab? Well check out some of these interesting wedding traditions found all over the world!


Let’s take you to Germany first, where housekeeping is important right from the get go.  Guests throw dishes on the ground to ward off evil spirits that might be lurking. The couple is to then clean up the dishes together learning the valuable lesson that working together allows them to face any challenges that are thrown at them.


If housekeeping is not your thing, how about entertaining your taste buds? Newlyweds in Russia share a type of sweetbread called karavaya, which is said to bring prosperity and faithfulness due to the wheat and interlocking rings. The partner that takes the biggest bite without using their hands is said to be considered the head of the family.



Last but certainly not least is the traditional Camel dance from Niger. In West Africa a camel is brought to the reception in the desert and dances to music while being surrounded by wedding guests getting their groove on as well. 



Hope you enjoyed all these new traditions! Stay tuned for more blog posts!

Toss Bar Trend

Have you heard of a toss bar?

This is one of this year’s biggest trends. Instead of handing out petals, herbs and sparkles to toss at the ceremony or reception, let your guests make their own cones! Giving a variety of options will make your give away unique! From a variety of herbs to different coloured petals there are a lot of options you can have to make your toss bar special!

Here are some examples of our favourite toss bars! 





Try one of these at your wedding!

And make sure you stay tuned for our next blog post!
