Souzie and Paul dated for ten years before they got married and they sealed their love in a stunning A Midsummer Night's Dream-themed wedding. Surrounded by woodland forest-inspired florals and traditional Laos and Chinese elements, the two celebrated their nuptials alongside their closest friends and family. We're obsessed with how the pink flowers pop against the green, tree-like centrepieces, not to mention the Shakespearean accents in the form of glass cloches, calligraphy, and feather quills.

John and Joseph were married in an incredible rooftop ceremony filled with sleek black and white accents at Toronto’s Malaparte. Guests then made their way indoors to find an abundance of fresh green florals, flickering votives, and gourmet food from Oliver & Bonacini Events and Catering.

Lindsay and Chris said “I do” at the Malaparte, an Oliver & Bonacini event space located in the heart of Toronto's Entertainment District. The elegant flower arrangements had guests swooning and consisted of ivory hydrangea and roses in shades of peach, pink, and light purple. The floor-to-ceiling windows, crisp white linens, and floral-filled tablescapes made for one unforgettable day.

Inspired by the Russian film Doctor Zhivago, this Glitterati Style File is the epitome of rustic luxury. Shot inside O&B's sophisticated French restaurant, Auberge du Pommier, this warm and elegant styled shoot featured a mixture of white and green florals, cozy wooden accents, flickering white candles, and of course, gourmet appetizers prepared by Oliver & Bonacini Events and Catering.

Alana and Andrew, the latter of whom happens to be the president of Oliver & Bonacini, said "I do" in a sleek city soirée designed to celebrate the couple’s true romance. The intimate celebration took place at Arcadian Loft and unsurprisingly featured amazing food. A dozen different varieties of canapés were served during the cocktail hour and dinner entrées ranged from a hearty grilled rib eye to a broiled sustainable sea bass and lobster bisque.

Vibrant hues of magenta and peach come alive against the stark beauty of wedding white in this Glitterati Style File featured in the newest issue of WedLuxe Magazine (Toronto & Eastern Canada edition). The dazzling combination of bright pink blooms, romantic watercolour accents, and lush foliage ultimately makes for one eye-catching design statement.

Elaine and Vantic's special day featured extravagant centrepieces, vintage white decor, bronze accents, and a unique high tea-themed cocktail hour. Casa Loma was transformed into a floral wonderland complete with a statement arch under which the happy couple said "I do." Between the historic architecture of the venue, the ivory, blush, and coral colour scheme, and the five-tier hand-painted cake, this wedding was a dream come true. See more from Elaine and Vantic's wedding in the S/F 2017 issue of WedLuxe Magazine available now!
