This garden themed Italian wedding is an event with the best of both worlds. Along the Toronto lakeshore is Palais Royale a venue which allows for an outdoor lakeside ceremony and an indoor ballroom decorated with art deco furnishing. This memorable blush and ivory affair was captured perfectly by Crimson Photo.
Couple Stephanie and Joe met as teenagers and 5 years into their romance, Joe proposed on a private seaside terrace on a romantic trip to Positano, Italy. With a two-year engagement, the couple began planning immediately for the wedding they dreamt of. The style of wedding they wanted for their day was slightly different than the traditional Italian wedding their families are used to. The dream of getting married outside along the water and amongst the colourful garden flowers.
The romantic garden theme came to life with the help of acclaimed floral designer and decorator Rachel A. Clingen. Taking advantage of the venue’s natural beauty, the space was futher enhanced with blush and cream blooms , lanterns and flowing drape that gave the couple the lush summer wedding they hoped for. In the ballroom, hanging centerpieces suspended above the tables, a unique and lavish look that we adore! Above the head table was a large cherry blossom canopy dripping with candle lit globes. A statement piece that was sure to impress.
Both the bride and groom donned custom made couture the day of their wedding. Stephanie was a look of bridal perfection with her bespoke Whyte Couture wedding gown. Her crystal embellished Christian Louboutin shoes completed the stylish brides wedding day look. The couple looked and felt amazing surrounded by hundreds of eyes but feeling like the only two people in the room. The bride and groom felt blessed with a beautiful sunny day filled with family, friends, love and of course the love they felt for each other.
Congratulations Stephanie & Joe!
