Stef & Daniel

Posted by: Becky De Oliveira in Weddings

Stef and Daniel were brought to BB by my amazing friend and colleague Renata De Thomasis in 2015.

Stef had a unique vision, and Renata really brought to life (as she always does!) with so much detail.

We love working in industrial spaces like The Fermenting Cellar, and this event was no different, and our friends at Boyfriend Girlfriend Pictures always capture all of the detail so perfectly.

Did you see that badass cake by the incredible Nadia & Co?! Come on!!! That Aztec pattern was prevalent throughout the wedding and even used as a print for the custom dancefloor at the Venue.

The bride wore a custom gown created by Kim at Valencienne bridal, and it was SO perfect and striking. This couple is nothing short of GORGEOUS!

Alex & Mike

Posted by: Becky De Oliveira in Weddings

Alex and Mike are such a sweet couple, and they had a really classic and pretty approach to their wedding vision.

Upon meeting me, Alex expressed her love for neutral tones, and really wanted to place emphasis on the florals being elegant and lush. We of course opted for whites and nudes with lots of cascading greenery.

She really wanted us to include Cafe au Lait dahlias and anemones with their dramatic black centres, to accent the black tuxes in the menswear.

Paired with taupe roses, ranunculus and delicate spray roses and you've got a pretty and sophisticated palette that will compliment any space, and even any attire!

I especially love that she wanted to bring the outside into the Reception space, the beautiful Doctor's House in Kleinburg, which we achieved by adding loose foliages to the venue's simple iron chandeliers. 

Oher areas like the Head Table and each guests' place setting were adorned with foliage to relate to the beautiful property that the event space overlooked.

I think it came together beautifully, and these gorgeous images from Avenue Photography truly capture how amazing these two people are!

Krissy & Nalin

Posted by: Becky De Oliveira in Weddings

These two people are the sweetest people ever!!!!

Krissy and Nalin were an absolute JOY to work with, I just want to hang out with them again!

They wed in October, back in 2015 at Enoch Turner Schoolhouse and it was such a beautiful fall day.

Krissy wanted berry tones paired with shades of eggplant and mauves, and Nalin loves plants... so what better partnering then a mix of both plants and blooms for tabletop decor? We mixed assorted plants in vintage and brass vessels, and added in stems of loose blooms into vintage budvases, with a ton of candlelight. The guests all took home a plant as a gift and there were plenty left for the happy couple to take home!

Kathryn & Dan

Kathryn and Dan.

This one from 2015 was one of my all time favorites.

Not only do I love working with my friend Laura Olsen Events, but to do a classic, timeless wedding at Casa Loma for two really lovely people? I mean, come on.

K+D wanted whites and greens for a sophisticated summer wedding in the castle, and I just love how beautifully all of the details came toegther. The idea was to enhance an already beautiful space with neutral details, and I think it worked very well.

I  truly do love a white wedding, there is something so elegant about a neutral palette ( even after all of the events we do!) The conservatory and libraray at Casaloma are so beautiful no matter what the decor, but when Laura Olsen is styling any event we know it will be nothing but classy, and that is why we love working with her :) 

How beautiful are these images from our friends at Mango Studios? PS, one of K's bridesmaids was a past bride of mine who you might recognize! Hi Elizabeth! 

K+D, a fabulous couple with exquisite taste, congratulations. we had a wonderful time working with you.

Kate & John

Posted by: Becky De Oliveira in Weddings

This one was so much awesome in one day.

Kate is such an amazing personailty to work with, she had such an open approach to her wedding, but knew she wanted a unique palette to compliment her gorgeous slate/ice blue gray dress - I believe it was from Elizabeth Dye ( it is so gorgeous). Deep rich tones of wine and plum, burgundy paired with light lavender and whites and greens. Perfection, really.

Kate and John had their Ceremony in a small church in Oakville, and following that, their guests headed to the Groom's family property, where they had a tented backyard with a clear, plexi floor OVER THE FAMILY'S POOL! Can you believe it? ( I couldn't either until I saw it with my own eyes)

Oh, and did we mention we draped the ceiling of the tent with yards of asparagus fern garlands? WELL, WE DID! It was magical!!!!

Take a look at the gallery, captured by the talented Corina V Photography, with planning and catering by Shelby Flynn, of Fresh and Fancy.

Kate and John, thank you so much for being such wonderful clients to work with and for having a vision all your own. It was so much fun to help design your wedding! xo
