Nothing stands the test of time than an all white, classic wedding. This timeless look is carried through so effortlessly in today’s wedding coordinated by Jackie Penner Events and captured by Bassem Photography.
Says Jackie: This wedding was about a decade in the making. Lauren and Ben have been together since high school and could not be more suited for one another. Lauren is a PHD student who absolutely loves what she does. While her schedule is often completely hectic, Ben is her patient partner always there to support her in whatever she needs. Ben is a sweet, intelligent engineer with a surprising rocker side. At his own wedding, he jumped on the drums and played with the band while everyone watched in awe – he was AMAZING! Lauren and Ben’s relationship is based on a deep respect and support for one another. Their wedding day was a full of timeless elegant pieces brought together with personal touches.

Right on pointe with the latest gold obsession (love!), today’s feature is a vintage-inspired photoshoot pairs gold with blush pink & cream. Put together by a group of talented Toronto vendors, including event design by Events Your Way and photography by Samantha Ong Photography, you can’t help but love how romantic and flirty the elements are when put together…the floral hairpiece, oversized pink bouquet, lace table cover and of course the ruffles on the wedding cake. Enjoy!
Says Samantha (photographer): The vision was to create a romantic and rustic wedding shoot with a whimsical undertone. The beautiful colour palette incorporated blush pinks, whites and creams, and hints of gold; the perfect colours for the season! This style is ideal for the romantic, down to earth bride who loves flowers, ruffles, lace and everything pink!
The Trillium Trails Banquet & Conference Centre is a Bavarian style lodge with impressive grounds showcasing lush hills, an adorable foot bridge over a pond, a stone foot path and plenty of blossoming trees. The grounds focal point is a deluxe white arbor that spans the ceremony space. We decorated the main alter space with a custom made paper garland that showcased white doilies, white ruffled cones, and pops of pink textured flowers.
The table was dressed with a medium weight lace overlay, with a pink tablecloth peering through the intricate lace pattern. The romantic, whimsical feel was carried through the place setting which included ruffled edge bone china plates and lightweight stainless steel cutlery. Wine and champagne glasses sparkled and added a touch of elegance to the rustic table.
Avoiding the single centerpiece design, we went with 3 pink-gold mirrored vases and 3 clear glass lantern vases showcasing a variety of soft, luscious flowers, and creating a casual cascading centerpiece. The table was anchored by a lovely floral table-number frame, and mini-frames with guest names for a personalized seating experience.
The stationary included a circular rose-print style menu card with charming font. The invitations were stunning with a white invitation card dressed up with a gold painted doily overlay, elegant font, and a blush pink envelope with a rose pattern peek-a-boo interior. The whimsical program cards featured a pictogram wedding party on a rustic cardstock. The ‘Just Married’ sign continued the floral theme and was a perfect touch of whimsy for wedding photographs.
The striking two-tier cake sat upon a magical ruffled edge cake stand. It featured a soft blush ruffle layer dusted with a hint of gold on the edges sitting beneath a white pearl beaded layer topped with a flower with delicate pink petals and a jewel-like gold center.
The white romantic wedding dress with beaded sweetheart neckline and a-line tulle skirt provided an effortlessly dreamy silhouette. The bride wore elegant drop pearl earrings, with a matching pearl necklace and double pearl bracelet, not to outshine the classic, singular stone engagement ring. The bride’s beauty was enhanced with soft natural blush lips, pink hue eye shadow, mascara and liner to enhance her eye shape, and an overall warm wedding glow. Her hair was styled down with loose, natural curls allowing bounce and movement.
The whimsical floral headpiece focused on mini pink roses to frame the bride’s lovely face. Her stunning bouquet featured peonies, roses and other soft florals creating a blush-peach-pink-rose palette. The greenery added interest and brought back the rustic outdoors feel to the bouquet wrapped up with white lace and pearl pins.
From beginning to end the ‘Blushing Bride’ wedding shoot focused on romantic, whimsical elements in a gorgeous rustic setting. The blush pink, white and gold wedding palette is a classic, beautiful scheme suitable for a bride who enjoys a romantic rustic atmosphere with delicate ruffle and lace touches.

If you don’t know already, I absolutely adore urban engagements. Captured by Luminous Weddings, today’s couple wanted to showcase the best of downtown Toronto and the financial district. Starting at One King West, they hit up some notable spots followed by some champagne on the beach at sunset. Enjoy!

There’s just something about the palette of today’s wedding that makes me swoon. The bride, Abbey, wanted to incorporate pink into her wedding, pairing it with a soft cream and a hint of blue. Abbey and Matt were married at Nithridge Estate Weddings in Ayr, Ontario, just minutes from Kitchener. Photos are by Lyn Ismael: Evocative Imagery of Love Stories.
