If you love all things Gatsby and dream of channeling Daisy Buchanan on your day, this shoot is for you! Designed as a tribute to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s timeless Jazz Age tale, the editorial is filled with glam gold, black, and ivory wedding inspiration. We fell for the vintage meets luxe style details, especially the Hayley Paige gown with crystal beading and the Naeem Khan flapper-style dress with a feathery skirt —a perfect reception dress to dance the night away in!
This wedding from Ikonica just may make your #WeddingWednesday! Tamar and Max were married last summer at Toronto’s Allstream Centre with assistance from planner Naomi Serkin of Naomi Serkin & Associates Ltd.
The couple had a traditional Jewish ceremony followed by a gorgeous grand reception. The ever inspiring Frank Rea of Forget Me Not Flowers of Oakville transformed the venue into a sophisticated, garden-inspired oasis for the celebration. The space featured custom-made, 16ft high wisteria trees decorated with twinkling hanging candles and opulent, white orchid-filled centrepieces. “There are no words to describe how I felt seeing the reception room a few hours before the wedding all ready to go,” recalls Tamar. “Our team perfectly brought to life what Max and I had envisioned.”
We’re major fans of jewellery designer Tara Fava and her stunning creations, so you can imagine our delight when Krista Fox Photography shared these beautiful photos of the bride-to-be’s shower with us!
The celebration was inspired by the City of Light where Tara and her fiancé Matt were engaged last spring. Event Designer Melissa Di Pasquale of Melmarie Events created a romantic atmosphere at Aurora’s Magna Golf Club for the event that echoed the sights and pleasures of Paris. A seating chart was designed to mirror the famous Pont des Arts bridge filled with "Love Locks." Dining tables were decorated with a mix of fragrant coral and pink blooms in gold vases, and place settings featured demi baguettes in custom packaging from inkandpaper.
The pièce de resistance was an incredible sweet table display created by Truffle Cake & Pastry. The display included an endless array of Parisian treats and an exquisite cake with a hand-painted illustration of the Eiffel Tower that perfectly matched the theme (and is so Pinterest-worthy!)
