Margherita and Rob’s elegant white and silver wedding took place last September in Vancouver. The couple had a traditional Catholic ceremony followed by a grand reception with floral by Granville Island Florist and decor by Upright Decor.

The focal point of the reception space was the opulent sweetheart table that was built on a riser. The newlyweds were seated under a custom, white canopy decorated with all-white floral displays and a hanging crystal chandelier. The bridal party sat at a long head table placed directly below the couple that featured textured, rosette-patterned linens and twinkling pillar candles. “It was a very romantic setting, and had everyone’s jaws dropping,” recalls Margherita.

Aly Armstrong of Wild Orchid Event Management provided full-service planning and design assistance for the wedding, and Yaletown Photography captured all of the details.

In celebration of Canada Day, we’re excited to share this red, white, and seriously stunning shoot with you! Truly Yours Planning, alongside Caprice Design & Decor and Purple Tree Photography, designed this shoot as a tribute to Canada and assembled a team of talented Ontario wedding professionals to bring their ideas to life.

We love the sleek, backless white gown from Toronto’s Papilio Boutique paired with crystal statement jewellery from The Loved One. Makeup and hair styled by Fancy Face Inc. complete the model’s sophisticated yet sexy and modern bridal look.

The al fresco tablescape is filled with inspiration for a late summer or fall celebration. Caprice Design & Decor designed a series of beautiful low centrepieces for the table using rich, red-coloured blooms and greenery. The flowers were arranged in a loose, natural style and placed in gold vases for a touch of luxe.

And what would a Canada Day celebration be without a feast? Edge Hospitality created on-theme hors d'oeuvres, including mini poutine paired with mini bottles of Canadian-made Crystal Head Vodka, while Sweet Celebrations designed a trio of naked cakes and a dessert table filled with Canadian-inspired delights. Purple Tree Photography was behind the lens to capture all of the Canadiana and you can see the shoot come to life in their behind-the-scenes video at the end of the post.

Lisa and Steve hosted a glamorous, black-tie wedding at the Bellvue Manor where Lisa works as an event coordinator. The bride naturally planned the event, working closely with Nancy Marra, the owner of the venue, and floral designer Cliff Hassanally of IXIA Flowers by Cliff.  “I have been working in the wedding industry for years and helping couples plan their day, so it was almost surreal that I was now planning my own wedding. I absolutely loved every aspect,” shares Lisa.

Enzo Mercuri Designs draped the ballroom in dramatic black fabric for the occasion and decorated the space with gilded mirrors and giant, crystal chandeliers. Cliff Hassanally created elaborate floral designs that paired beautifully with the rich decor. The awe-inspiring centrepieces included thousands of pink roses, orchids, dahlias, hydrangea, lilies and dusty miller (to name just a few of the blooms!) “The flowers were jaw-dropping,” remembers Lisa. Our friends at 5ive15ifteen Photo Company were thankfully on hand to capture every minute of the luxe celebration.
