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.
You’d never guess upon seeing this wedding that it almost did not happen. Last year, southern Alberta went through a devastating flood which I’m sure many of you heard in the media or experienced yourself. The photographer who captured the day, Amara Dirks Photography describes what happened:
“Last year, much of southern Alberta was going through some pretty devastating times as many lives were destroyed by the floods. Right smack in the middle of this, with uncertainties beyond belief, Leanne was unsure of how their day was going to unfold, if at all .. original plans were literally wiped away, and as High River was a literal ghost town and lives were in complete shambles. The Highwood Golf and Country Club was going to hopefully be ready in time for their October date. It’s not like one can send emails demanding that they get basically EVERYTHING new and ready for their wedding. I scouted the golf course the day before, and it was a quiet walk. Sod was being re-applied to huge sections of the course that were completely wiped away. Until one is standing right in the middle of a place that was in utter chaos, it is truly unexplainable the emotions that hit.”
But admist it all, everything came together to make for a beautiful wedding of two people in utter love.
And we’re back! I’m so eager to share this beautiful and elegant wedding held in Kelowna, BC captured by DQ Studios. With the help of White Orchid Wedding Consulting, Calgarians Chris and Annette got an elegant and romantic wedding with a contemporary feel. The wedding was black and white with the detail of lace used throughout. Enjoy!
Says Shawna of White Orchid Wedding Consulting: The ceremony was decorated with a delicate antique table which held hand fans and parasols for the guests. Cream pomanders lined the aisle and rose petals were scattered along the ends of the rows of white guest chairs. Wine barrels were placed at at the altar, and a classical Harpist played soothing music as guests arrived for the afternoon ceremony overlooking CedarCreek’s grape vineyards and a beaming sun over Okanagan Lake.
For the dinner and reception tent at the Harvest Golf Club, crystal chandeliers were hung from the lined tent. Statement centrepieces with Hydrangeas, roses and cream spider mums looked beautiful on the lace covered round guest tables.
