Happy Thursday! I can’t think of a better way for me to start off the morning than with a photoshoot that I know you’re going to love. A bunch of fabulous Toronto wedding vendors teamed up to create beautiful warm white and rustic inspiration with loads of swoon-worthy details.

Our vision was whites with layered textures, both old and new with lots of charm and warmth. We used lots of unexpected and unique details such as little birds, pinecones under cloches, porcelain artichokes, tiny bud vases and vintage decanters. Guest gifts were handed out in small burlap pouches wrapped with satin ribbon and tied with a hemp string,each with a note of thanks.
The flowers were a romantic mix of Honeymoon Tulips, Ranunculus, Chrysanthemum, Baby’s Breath, Veronica Caya, Hydrangea and feathers for added interest. The bride’s bouquet was neatly tied with burlap and satin.
Stationery Details: The stationary mixed vintage glam with a bit of rustic charm. The invitation had an apothecary-inspired label featuring a mix of textured monochromatic papers and embellished with crystal and pearls, nestled in a cream silk box accented with a vintage look broach, feathers, twill tape and a tiny mother of pearl button. Coordinating items included a matching petal-style program fan, embellished seating cards and table numbers, as well as a one-of-a-kind sweet table sign. The seating cards were set out using hand cut tags hung on tiny white clothes pins in white wooden frames among candle lit vintage mason jars.
Guest Tables: The guest tables were made all the more special with a white quilted overlay, bronze chargers topped with white china, taupe linen and a large organic pearl branch napkin ring. A small bottle of mints for after the meal accompanied each setting. The centerpieces circled by a grapevine wreath were a combination of silver taper candle holders, white hydrangea in a tall white vase with adorable birds and owls all around. We created several other points of interest in the space: a luxurious cake table, a throw table and a signing area.
Cake + Cupcakes: The cake table was full of white cakes and cupcakes to tantalize the palette. A beautiful white rose cake with a grey satin ribbon, adorable miniature white cupcakes under cloches were surrounded with candles and points of whimsy.
