I'm sharing another December 2014 wedding today, here's Niki and David!

Niki and David wed downtown, at the Toronto Reference Library where they first met and spent lots of time together.

Their wedding palette was filled with deep eggplant purples, peach, blush tones and whites with lots of foliages.

Gold glitter sequinned linen on some tables, alternating with black linens on the rest.

Gold cutlery. Florals on top of stacks of old books. 

A giant foliage and flower covered Chuppah surrounded by candles on a stage.

One hundred pillar candles lining the 70 foot aisle.

Are you getting the vibe that I am putting out here for you?

Take a peek at these amazing images by my friend Scarlet O'Neill of their amazing event. Planning and co ordination was that of another great friend, Melissa Baum Events. Well done team!


Happy 1x year Anniversary you two!!! Thanks for allowing us to be part of your fabulous wedding day!

J&N:: A New Year's Eve Wedding

Posted by: Becky De Oliveira in Friends of B&B Weddings

Well, here we are, almost at NYE of 2015 and I am just finally blogging one of my fave weddings of last year.

Jess and Neil had a fabulous NYE bash with beautiful elements.

They did it right. And, it was absolutely fabulous!!

Laura Olsen, of Laura Olsen Events just gets me.

We work so well together, and her design abilities and styling are nothing short of amazing.

Together, we transformed the ever-so-utilitarian white space of Airship 37 into an elegant and fun NY bash, complete with hanging wall of foliage, and a chandeliere made of greens.

Natural chargers and dove grey linens paired with Farmhouse cross back chairs, lush garlands of greenery and all white blooms....le sigh.

Pure magic!

Here are some of the amazing captures from Carmin Davidson  that will truly blow your mind.

Sarah + Mike

Posted by: Becky De Oliveira in Friends of B&B Weddings

A few pretties by the sweet Scarlet O'Neill of Sarah and Mike from January of this year, which was almost 1x year ago!!!!!

How sweet are Sarah and Mike? 

These two had such great families, and a truly lovely approach to wedding planning~ it was so admirable. I am so grateful to have been a part of their day.

Their big day was in January....did I mention it was so, so, very cold? But, you would never know it from these magical images would you?!

Sabrina + Eric.

Posted by: Becky De Oliveira in Friends of B&B Weddings

This one though.

Where do I even start with this wedding?

Sabrina is one of my all time favorite Brides. She is so sweet,fun, and trusting.

She had a great vision for her wedding to Eric, held at Archeo in the Distillery. Classic, with lots of flowers and a pop of colour, with elements of whimsy.

This is one where the Bride just absolutely LOVES flowers, and she really wanted that to be a big part of her wedding day.

I think that  we were pretty successful in making that a reality, and it was so much fun pulling together all of the gold glittery details with Sabrina!

These are the ones I love the most...

Can we also talk about these amazing photos by our amazing friend Barb of Tara McMullen Photography?

I often revisit this gallery and fawn over this whole wedding. ( Psssst,  it was also featured over on The Wedding Co, HERE.

Get ready for some breath taking loveliness!

( S&E, you are wonderful and we love you!)

Jessica + Josh

Posted by: Becky De Oliveira in Friends of B&B Weddings

When you do someone in the industry's flowers....


Jessica and I have worked together before, as she is a wedding photographer in Toronto.  We even had a feature shared on Style Me Pretty with clients from 2014 .( She is so talented! Check her blog and website HERE

So, when she emailed me and asked if I would be her flower power, my heart exploded! Of course I had to.

Jess and Josh have been togther since they were kids, and decided to have an April Fool's Day wedding. How cool is that?

They kept things fresh, fun and low key with a Mexican themed cocktail party at Wychwood Barns, and then they painted the town red afterward :)

 Being a photographer, naturally JBS asked another of Toronto's amazing talented photogs, her friend Rebecca Wood to be her camera power. 

Here's a few snaps from their sunny wedding day back in April. 


Jessica and Josh are the coolest couple alive, and we love them! Thanks for beign awesome, guys!
