I’m absolutely sure you will fall in love with today’s feature. Captured by A Brit & A Blonde, Dani and Daniel’s wedding was nothing short of creative, modern and absolutely chic. Along with their planner, KJ & Co., the Burroughes Building in Toronto was transformed into an all glam event in black, white and touches of gold. I particularly love the gold sparkled table numbers, the hanging ceiling decor, Geronimo balloons and custom honeycomb design created by Wendy Chin that was used throughout. Love!
Dani & Daniel celebrated their big day in the heart of Toronto. At one of our favourite venues The Burroughes Building. Such a cool space that you can really make your own and the exposed brick wall inside adds so much to the vibe of the day. Their friend and very talented designer Wendy Chin created and designed the invitations and all the paper pieces seen throughout. That amazing modern honeycomb design gave the day a sense of whimsy and really set the look and feel. The giant balloons and tissue installations were from Geronimo Balloons – they were so fun and really made a playful mark on the day. Dani had not one but two wedding dresses. The first one she bought and the second one was the dress her mom wore at her own wedding – it still felt so cool and modern and was of course very meaningful for Dani’s mom to see her daughter in it. We loved it -a dress I would totally wear if we ever renew ours vows. LOL. It was a Jewish ceremony with a lovely chuppah that Dani actually DIY’d and had a company come in and install it on the day. Their 150 guests had such a ball with delish food by the Food Dudes and music by a DJ that they flew in from England for the event.

I rarely share trash the dress sessions, but when I do it’s usually pretty awesome. It’s currently the Big Valley Jamboree weekend here in Alberta. getwed wanted to share a session of one of their couples that was held at the Jamboree as it was where they got engaged.

Valeria and Jeremy’s outdoor engagement is sure to put a smile on your face, especially with the beautiful weather we’ve been having as of late. Styled by WuLaLa Weddings & Events , the combination of balloons, bubbles and an evening picnic are pretty much perfect. Photos are by Lucy Chang Photography.
Says Lucy (photographer): After a long and cold winter, Valeria and Jeremy wanted to celebrate their engagement shoot with something festive and outdoorsy; the solution was to have a picnic-themed shoot! So we took a ferry to Centre Island and picked the perfect spot on the grass surrounded by tall trees, a beautiful lake and a beautiful sunset serving as a backdrop. The location worked perfectly: the fresh green grass, the vintage picnic basket, the colourful balloons and flowers, the classic Coco-Cola bottles and treats gave the perfect aesthetic to their beautiful shoot!
