Everyone who knows me know that I am obsessed with Rocky Mountains. So you can imagine my excitement when Carmen and Carl inquired about their Fairmount Banff wedding. It was a beautiful windy day, with a perfect temperatures to be outside for their terrace ceremony and cocktail hour. Carmen and Carl chose to do a first look to see each other before the ceremony and we still got lots of “groom tears” when Carl saw Carmen walking down the isle. In fact their ceremony got to be one of the most emotional ones I’ve ever been to. For both of them. For their wedding photos we drove around Banff, thankfully there are so many amazing spots for wedding photos just minutes from the Fairmont Banff Springs.

Sometimes moody and tons of B&W just fits the session. This wedding shoot at St George Golf Club happened on a rainy Spring day, in a place so full of character. We couldn’t resist some romantic moodiness. Hope it inspires (love the rose gold trend)  and shows you that rainy wedding day in Toronto can be beautiful as well.

 

From Phoebe Lo Events…This magical day was captured in its bohemian spring elements, with a display inspired by the organic fluidity of poetry with a touch of elegance and luxury. The subtle interplay between soft textiles and delicate metals, further suggested by the fine array of artisan dyed linens and silk ribbon, all blend beautifully into a splendid palette of rose gold, silver and gold.

Nestled upon the soft blush chiffon is an exquisitely crafted glass invitation suite, embellished with contemporary calligraphy produced by Velsie Mak. The elegant heirloom ring is presented by a handmade velvet ring box, custom made by Painterly Posies.

The serene outdoors was the perfect place for a charming sweetheart table setting, with a rustic floral landscape arranged by Secrets Floral Collection. Al fresco fine dining against the majestic backdrop of St. George Golfing Country Club welcomes spring in a curious and fanciful way.

Graced with a collection of fine china and delicate glassware from William Ashley, the rose gold cutlery delicately plays with the soft blush linen that further defines the coexisting vintage chairs for the couple seating. The soft palette of blush, ivory and yellow is encapsulated by the blooms and bouquets framing the scenescape. This romantic setting is accompanied by a collection of handcrafted artisan candles by Fenwick Candles, produced in an eco-friendly manner with all vegan materials and hand poured for each celebration.

Our bride features two distinct wedding gown styles prepared by Ferre Sposa with accent accessories by LUVYT. These beautiful gowns and accessories were stylized by Jennifer Dang, with the charming look completed by Makeup Designer, Velsie Mak and Hair Designer, Puzzle Creations. The celebration is furthered by a collection of sweets and desserts by Sinfully Sweet Co. A rustic log cake celebrates the charm of the scene, paired with a more elegant triple layered cake.

The thematic spring inspiration was represented by the natural sprinkling of spring showers, accented with the unconventional bohemian layout of the sweetheart table. In place of a traditional centerpiece, the tablescape design was defined by asymmetrical floral and greenery. The castle-esque location showcases a variety of charming and unconventional spaces for wedding inspirations. From the age old architecture to the surrounding landscapes, each space embodied an unsurpassable elegance with very prominent notes of historical and bohemian pieces.

 

 

 

I don’t usually write here, but these are the words of the bride and I wanted to include the story and vision behind their day. Because I believe that your wedding should be a representation of who you are as a couple and those guys have done it oh so well.
Scroll away, and I hope it inspires you to personalize your day in a unique way!

toronto laid back wedding

“For our wedding, we really wanted something that truly represented us. We wanted the day to feel casual and comfortable and full of love with great food for ourselves and our guests. We both love being surrounded by our family and friends but don’t feel comfortable being the centre of attention so keeping it small was ideal. We also had people coming from far away and wanted to be able to truly spent quality time with each and everyone of them. We both love the outdoors (Brian is from the west coast and we camp/hike all the time – in fact just came back from a 3day trail hike in BC and then Tofino) and we are definitely foodies so when we stumbled upon Big Crow we knew it would be perfect – had that outdoor woodsy feeling and amazing food, plus we’ve had some pretty memorable date nights there!
Decor wise, we wanted it to be laid back/comfortable romantic and definitely nothing too formal or stuffy. The venue did a lot of it for us. All the intrinsic wood elements and backyard barbecue touches were perfect for that casual feel. The real star to us though was the flowers, which really gave it that beautiful romantic feel.  We adore flowers/plants. Our house is full of plants and Brian does a pretty good job of constantly surprising me with fresh flowers. We are long term customers of our florists (crown flora). We love everything they do and Brian knows that when he needs to get me a bouquet, to get them from there (bday, anniversary, just because). We always knew we wanted crown flora to do our wedding even before we had anything else planned. What they actually did that day was all them! We love their work and essentially gave them free reign to do what they wanted with the space.
A favorite moment for us was the ceremony itself. The way the venue was set up meant that everyone was standing around casually in a semi-circle around us and we could see everyone. Add that to hearing each other’s personalized vows, we both could not have been more surrounded by love. My face hurt I was smiling so much!
Looking back – the day was absolutely perfect for us and there isn’t a single thing we would change.
We got to marry each other in a comfortable casual setting surrounded by our closest family and friends. The venue looked amazingly  outdoorsy romantic and inviting. The food was amazing and excessive. And we had time to not only enjoy each others company but to actually sit down with each of our guests to catch up.
