Pretty in pink, it doesn’t get lovelier than this. A pink umbrella and beautiful bouquet of the same shade, today’s wedding planned by Divine Weddings & Events was definitely not dampened by the rain. Captured by Jeremy Hiebert Photography, Chelsea and Stavros wanted a vintage inspired wedding filled with sweet little DIY details, but keeping with a traditional Greek wedding ceremony. Enjoy!
Says Tammy of Divine Weddings & Events: Stavros is the owner of Santa Lucia Pizza, and that is where they met. Chelsea and Stavros got married on a spring day – a touch a rain didn’t hamper any spirits. Out came the pink umbrella! Stavros is Greek, so they decided to have a traditional Greek Orthodox ceremony. The reception was held at Bergmann’s on Lombard. Colour palette was soft pinks and creams. Chelsea wanted a romantic vintage feel to their wedding. There were a few DIY touches – Chelsea designed a photo seating chart where guests found their photo and their table number was written on the back of the photo. For the guest book, guests wrote their names on little hearts and dropped them in the top of a double pained frame which displayed all the hearts. In true Greek style, guests spent the night dancing to Greek music, and breaking plates on the dance floor.

Here’s a pretty palette that’s bright, refreshing and oh-so-chic. You wouldn’t think to put orange and green together, but after seeing this wedding, it just might change your mind. Photography is by Erin Johnson Photography
A beautiful Winnipeg wedding graces the front of the blog today from planner LouLou Weddings, and you can tell a lot of thought was put into planning this wedding. Carly and Nevin wanted their wedding theme to be “opposites attract”, juxtaposing the urban downtown city views of their venue to romantic decor elements including lace and pearls. They chose Tiffany blue and coral as the main colours, based off Carly’s parents colour scheme 30 years ago of peach and baby blue. Photography is by Josh Dookhie Photography.
Says Carly: “We paid homage to my in-laws wedding by wrapping the girls’ bouquets in material from my future mother-in-law’s wedding dress (something old, something borrowed!).”
“Nevin and I saw eachother for the first time on our wedding day before the ceremony in his parents backyard gazebo- a place that we have had many memories in. We then took some portraits with our pride and joy, our french bulldog, Frankie Lou.”
“You’ll see some ‘shoe-themed’ pieces in the detail pics- our cake topper, wine charm wedding favors and print materials featured a high heel and a croc. Everyone who knows Nevin and I is aware that Nevin wore Crocs on our first date, which was horrifying to me (I’m modern girly-girl who loves fashion and all things sparkly!). However, we’re married now, so obviously he was onto something!“
Favourite Wedding Moment:
My favorite part of the day was hearing everyone say how “us” the whole day felt- and of course, seeing my future husband for the first time. I worried that I would not be able to let go of my inner ‘planner’ and worry about details throughout the day, but I was so happy that I was only focused on savoring every amazing moment!

Today’s featured art gallery wedding is definitely my cup of tea. It’s contemporary, clean and utterly refreshing. With the help of Julianne of A Modern Proposal Event Planning, Sharnell and Tim’s wedding was a sea of white, silver (for some bling!) and purple. This modern wedding included some glittered linens, silver chavari chairs and custom wedding stationery from PinkPolka Design. Photos are by Eternal Reflections Photography.
