Four Unique Takes On The Traditional White Wedding Cake

Planning » Wedding Cakes


White always feels right for your wedding day, especially when it comes to your cake. Our favourite tiers and towers of the moment are contemporary confections brimming with touchable texture and a gradation of whisper-light tones. We asked four Toronto cake designers to put their own modern twist on the classic white wedding cake, and the results are as dreamy as they come. In the one wedding colour that complements any theme, these cakes are sweet masterpieces that your guests are sure to talk about.

Chic Mismatched Tiers
Trisha Medina of Rococoa Butter used a different technique for each tier on this cake. Piped floral detailing, crackled texture and intricate fondant ruffles make this dessert a showstopper. “This cake is a contrast between clean, monochromatic elegance, detailed texture and the flow of nature,” Medina says.


Mod Details
White subway tiles were the inspiration for this modern geometric cake by Jen La of JENLA Cake. “The tiles were made from sugar and bent down the middle, which adds depth and dimension to the design, as well as creating ever-changing shadow depending on where the light hits it,” La explains. A cascade of sugar orchids adds softness and romance to the cake.


Haute Couture Patterns
Allyson Bobbitt of Bobbette and Belle was inspired by a favourite Chanel dress for this cake featuring a sugar-paste trellis and petite, ruffled flowers. “We wanted to design a light, delicate appearance while still having lots of visual interest,” says Bobbitt. “Of course, few cakes are truly complete without a touch of sparkle, so we used small silver dragées and tiny Swarovski crystals as the finishing touches.”


A Kiss of Colour
Amanda Foong Cakes incorporated just a hint of pale pink for this gorgeous confection that includes a variety of textured elements. Gold adds glam, while the bottom tier’s surprise geometric shape and pattern provide contrast between the layers. Sugar flowers on each side frame the cake beautifully and tie the palette together.

HGTV Star Sarah Keenleyside And Musician Justin Rutledge’s Wedding

Real Weddings

You could say the romance between HGTV Canada star Sarah Keenleyside and Juno Award–winning singer-songwriter Justin Rutledge started with a little help from Instagram. The duo met at one of Justin’s concerts and began following each other’s feeds. A few months later, Justin asked Sarah out via the app. “You can actually still see the conversation on my Instagram profile—I wanted to make contact but he beat me to it!” Sarah shares with a laugh. “We went on a coffee date the next day and then ended up on our second date less than 24 hours after that.”

What followed was a whirlwind romance. “We told each other we were falling in love with each other within the first week,” Sarah says. “We joked that we were both NOT playing it cool.”

For their laid-back nuptials, the couple chose a friend’s live music venue, The Hayloft Dancehall in Ontario’s Prince Edward County. “We took a cue from the red barn and worked with primary colours for the wedding-party attire,” Sarah explains. “We played off the heritage of the area with vintage accents, and the lush landscape inspired the wild, unfussy flower arrangements on the tables.”

Sarah also used her eye for design on the tablescapes: doilies she found at a church sale topped the tables, while white linens and mismatched salad plates at each place setting added a vintage vibe. “The beauty of this venue is the space has so much character you don’t need to add much to it,” she explains.

To play up the primary palette, the bridesmaids and bridesman wore mustard-coloured attire in different styles. “My bridesman wore his own grey suit and we found a yellow, floral tie that matched the dresses beautifully,” Sarah says. “The result was really eclectic, and I loved how each of them looked like themselves.”

After a heartfelt ceremony in the late afternoon, guests headed to the reception, where they found their seats via Polaroid portraits of themselves bearing table numbers on the reverse. “We were really happy with some of these little details,” says Sarah. “We loved the cake topper, which was a 3-D-printed sculpture of the two of us, set atop a homemade cake made by Justin’s mother. It suited us much more than a fancy, formal wedding cake.”

Following the reception, the dance party was led by the couple’s favourite cover band, Dwayne Gretzky. “The best part was when Justin surprised me by going on stage to sing my favourite David Bowie song, ‘Let’s Dance,’” Sarah reveals.

After dancing into the wee hours of the morning, guests were chauffeured back to their accommodations in a school bus. With Justin playing guitar, the newlyweds and their guests sang songs throughout the whole ride.

After the couple was dropped off, they began the walk to the inn where they were staying. “We found ourselves walking down an empty county road at 2 a.m., Justin with his guitar on his back, me wearing my grandfather’s Cowichan sweater with my dress train in hand,” Sarah recalls. “It was so silent after such a crazy day. We just kept looking at each other as we walked, asking, ‘Did that really just happen?’”

The Most Inspiring Details From Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s Wedding

Planning

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s wedding is the gift that keeps on giving. The couple’s latest images and video of their lavish, OTT nuptials have absolutely floored us, putting this celebration high-up on our list of unforgettable celebrity weddings. As everyone knows by now, the celebration was a multi-day affair, and we’ve covered the special pre-wedding ceremonies: the mehendi and the sangeet. There’s no shortage of inspiration from this incredibly lavish event, and we know brides will be thinking of how to incorporate the details in their own special day, so we’ve rounded up just some of our favourite details.

The venue
Umaid Bhawan Palace was the fairy-tale location to host the couple’s four-day celebration. One of the largest private residences in the world, this opulent, sprawling estate features stunning architecture and historic artwork, and is part hotel, part residence and part museum.

The bride’s 75-foot veil
By now we’ve all seen the wedding footage that everyone is buzzing about—especially Chopra’s epic ceremony entrance. But let’s be real: the veil stole the show. Five ushers carried the Chopra’s 75-foot-long headpiece as she floated toward her groom with her mother by her side, ensuring the veil stayed delicately sprawled behind her. This veil was so instantly iconic that the internet couldn’t resist making memes out of it.

The custom Ralph Lauren bridal gown for the Christian ceremony
With a high neckline, buttons along the front up and down and an illusion skirt, Chopra’s dress was nothing short of awe-inspiring. Ralph Lauren has only previously designed three other wedding gowns before, all for family members. Along with Chopra’s gown, he also designed Jonas’s suit. But what we especially love? The personalized touches included in both Chopra’s gown and Jonas’s suit. On her gown, Chopra had a piece of lace from her mother-in-law’s wedding dress sewn into her own, as well as eight hand-stitched words: Nicholas Jerry Jonas, their wedding date, the names of her parents. Jonas had a piece of lace from Chopra’s dress sewn into his lapel with the words, “My Jaan” (my life).

The incredible ceremony decor
Chopra and Jonas said their I dos on a raised platform under a structure adorned with a canopy of gorgeous pink, green and white florals, expertly executed by Motwane Events and Weddings. Chairs were decorated with chiffon and sprigs of greenery, giving the whole ceremony venue a dreamy vibe.

Their big wedding party
Although we’ve made the case for having no bridal party at all, this wedding proved that bigger is better with 12 bridesmaids, 12 groomsmen, four flower girls and one ring bearer—all wearing custom Ralph Lauren. With bigger bridal parties, coordination is a must!

Their 18-foot wedding cake
According to the Hindustan Times, chefs were flown in from Kuwait and Dubai upon Jonas’s request to create this 18-foot masterpiece, a towering wedding cake done in the shape of a palace. Wedding footage from People shows the couple slicing into the cake with what appears to be a sword. As the cake-cutting took place, fireworks were set off in spectacular fashion over the Umaid Bhawan Palace in a three-minute show.

The Hindu ceremony
On the Sunday, the couple had their Hindu ceremony. Chopra wore a red Lehenga, a two piece-ensemble by Sabyasachi adorned with hand-embroidered and hand-cut silk organza flowers, Siam red crystals and took over 3,000 hours to make. She also wore an incredible 184.5-carat diamond necklace from Chopard—the same jeweller who created the couple’s wedding bands. Nick wore a dhoti embroidered with gold thread, as well as a turban and kurta top.

The reception in Delhi
After the festivities, the couple flew to New Delhi for a reception on Tuesday, where guests included the Indian Prime Minister, and the couple’s outfits stunned us yet again. Chopra wore a Falguni Shane Peacock lehenga and a dupatta shawl, and Jonas wore a navy tux. However, this won’t be the last of their events—the couple are said to be flying back to Mumbai for a final reception with Chopra’s Bollywood friends.

Everything We Love About Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s Wedding So Far

Planning

Photo Credit: Stephen Lovekin/WWD/Shutterstock

It’s official! Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are now married. The celeb power couple tied the knot in a lavish, multi-faith, multi-day celebration in Jodhpur, India over the weekend. Teasing a few photos from the mehendi ceremony and the sangeet (musical evening), the couple has yet to post any photos from their Christian or Hindu ceremonies, which took place at the Umaid Bhawan Palace on Saturday and Sunday. It is reported that the couple had a strict no cell phone policy for their guests, so we’ll have to wait until the couple reveals the photos themselves. However, many details from the weekend’s events have been revealed, and we’ve rounded up what we know so far.

The mehendi party

Chopra and Jonas took to social media to release photos from the mehendi party, a traditional pre-wedding ritual in which the bride has elaborate henna designs painted on her hands. Chopra, wearing a bright, multi-coloured organdy sherwani by Khosla Jani, can be seen dancing in one photo, and laughing with the guests including future sister-in-law actress Sophie Turner, who is engaged to Jonas’s brother Joe, as well as her mother-in-law Denise Jonas. Jonas was also pictured posing with his love, wearing a pale green Banarasi cotton Bhakiya kurta, also by Khosla Jani.

The sangeet celebration

View this post on Instagram

It all began as a fierce song & dance competition between the families but ended, as always, as a huge celebration of love.  Nick and I were looking forward to the Sangeet (musical evening), another pre wedding ritual.. and to see what each side had put together. And what a performance it was. Each family telling our stories through song and dance, filled with lots of laughter and love. We were both filled with gratitude for the effort, the love and the laughter and will carry the memories of this special evening for the rest of our lives. It is an amazing start to a lifetime of togetherness for our families and friends…#grateful @nickjonas 📹/📷: @calebjordanlee @josevilla @josephradhik

The sangeet is a musical event in which the bride, groom and their guests perform songs and dance routines. We have no doubt that Jonas and Chopra’s sangeet evening was highly anticipated, given their musical backgrounds. The couple’s videos and photos show that it was a high-energy, fun-filled event with all their guests participating. Chopra included a touching caption alongside her post on Instagram. “It all began as a fierce song & dance competition between the families but ended, as always, as a huge celebration of love,” she wrote. “Nick and I were looking forward to the Sangeet (musical evening), another pre wedding ritual.. and to see what each side had put together.” Several clips include Jonas leaping and dancing across the stage, as well as Joe Jonas taking to the mic to perform. In one photo, Chopra can be seen dancing alongside her mother, Madhu Chopra.

The Christian ceremony

The bride and groom exchanged vows in a Christian ceremony officiated by Nick’s father, Kevin Jonas Sr., who is a pastor. We love that the couple wore custom outfits made by Ralph Lauren, a special nod to the designed who created their outfits when they first stepped out in public together at the 2017 Met Gala. In fact, Ralph Lauren has previously only designed gowns for family members, making the couple  a rare exception to this rule. Ralph Lauren also designed the attire for the groomsmen—Jonas’s three brothers, Kevin, Joe and Frankie along with Chopra’s brother, Siddharth. According to E! News, the couple wed under a white canopy with pastel flowers, and Chopra wore a long veil as part of her attire.

The OTT fireworks

After the ceremony, the sky above the Umaid Bhawan Palace was alit with an elaborate fireworks display, a festive way to mark the start of the couple’s journey as husband and wife and to end the day’s festivities.

The Hindu ceremony

On Sunday the couple were married in a traditional Hindu ceremony. In an interview with Vogue, Jonas confirmed he would be wearing traditional attire, including a turban and a sword. He is also said to have ridden into the ceremony on a horse, as per tradition, and him and Chopra rode an elephant before exchanging floral garlands in the varmala ritual, according to the India Times. Chopra is said to have worn an ensemble by Indian designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee.

The celebrations are still ongoing…

The newlyweds, as well as their family and guests, were seen arriving at the airport in New Delhi, where it is reported that the couple will have a wedding reception on Tuesday. “People will need vacations after this wedding,” Chopra told Vogue.

This multi-day celebration was the OTT wedding of our dreams, and we can’t wait to hear more details and see more photos. Stay tuned for more updates!

These Are The Details You Need For A Southwestern-Inspired Wedding

Real Weddings

If you’ve been dreaming of a boho, southwestern-inspired wedding full of cacti, lush florals and uber-cool vibes, these are the details you need to see. When coming up with this styled shoot concept, which was captured in the Government House Gardens and Fifth Street Bar in Victoria, B.C., lead planners Anouk Fitzner and Dakota Bateman of Emma McCormick’s Creative Planning and Production were inspired by desert vibes.

Creative decor pieces included a custom-built ceremony arch and over-the-top florals. “Lynda of FLEURtacious wowed us by creating two beautiful bouquets along with some killer arrangements designed specifically for the magnificent wide-brimmed hats,” Bateman explains. “She took the desert vibe and really made it her own.”

Other details include a gorgeous drip cake topped with cacti, and two boho bridal gowns by Ti Adora and Lis Simon from Tres Chic Bridal Boutique.

Actor Gregory Smith And Model Taylor McKay’s Mountain Wedding In Utah

Real Weddings

Actor Gregory Smith (who starred on TV shows Everwood and Rookie Blue) and model Taylor McKay wanted to plan their wedding in a location meaningful to their romance. “Greg used to work on a show in Park City, Utah, and kept his house there, so over the course of our relationship it has been a place we go for solitude and relaxation,” Taylor explains. “It has also been the one constant in all our years together, so we decided to share our special day with close friends and family surrounded by the mountains.”

The pair got engaged in Toronto, where they first met. “We went there for a show he was directing, and after it wrapped, we had a relaxing day to unwind,” Taylor recalls. “At dinner all these memories of the relationship started rushing back to me, and we were reminiscing about our journey.” As the couple walked home, Gregory took Taylor to a special spot. “He asked, ‘Do you recognize where we are?’ I looked around and noticed we were on the exact corner where we had our first kiss,” Taylor says. “He started whispering the sweetest things and all of a sudden I could feel his heart pounding. Before I could even figure out what was happening, he was down on one knee. I was so shocked—I just started laughing and crying, until he eventually said, ‘You have to give me an answer!’ I said, ‘Yes!’”

The couple, with a shared a love of skiing, joked that their wedding was the perfect compromise. “It was Greg’s dream to get married in ski boots, but I wanted a more elegant evening,” Taylor says with a laugh. “The compromise was a formal wedding at a ski resort that requires a chairlift, sans the ski boots!”

The Lookout Cabin, a quaint log cabin perched on top of a mountain, was the perfect venue for their magic-hour nuptials. The picturesque mountaintop views made for an enchanted evening. To get to the ceremony, guests took a ski lift up the mountain and were greeted with a glass of champagne. They then followed a rocky, candlelit path to a sign that said, “Love at 8,300 feet.”

“The actual ceremony was my favourite part of the wedding,” Taylor shares. “I was shaking with nerves right up until the moment my dad took my arm and walked me down the aisle. Then a gentle wave of calm washed over me, and when Greg’s eyes met mine we just locked into each other.” The couple shared the vows they wrote in front of 70 of their closest family and friends from Vancouver, Toronto, Los Angeles and New York.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds dined with their guests al fresco underneath bistro lights as the sun set. “One of my bridesmaids, Sara, is CEO of the essential oils company Vitruvi. She scented the cabin with diffusers and their Grove oil blend, which filled the atmosphere with the soothing scent of the forest,” Taylor says.

To continue the evening, everyone descended the mountain via the chairlifts to make their way to The Farm restaurant for the after-party. “It was so dark it felt like we were floating through the mountains and the night sky was glittering with stars,” Taylor describes. “Our chairlift had a lit-up ‘Just Married’ sign on the back, and friends cheered each time our chair passed theirs.”

7 Details We Loved From Mandy Moore’s Wedding

Planning

Mandy Moore recently wed musician Taylor Goldsmith in a stylish extravaganza that was as gorgeous as it was whimsical and non-traditional. The This Is Us star and the lead singer of folk-rock band Dawes exchanged vows in their backyard in the company of celebs such as Moore’s co-stars Milo Ventimiglia, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, and even ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama. With a boho pink theme throughout, it was clear that this wedding was anything but conventional. Here are our favourite details from this sweet, intimate celebration.

Her stunning custom pink Rodarte gown
Choosing an unconventional dress wasn’t a surprise to us. Moore previously mentioned to People that she felt she wouldn’t wear a traditional white dress because “it just doesn’t feel the most me.” Instead, she walked down the aisle wearing pastel pink Rodarte dress with a ruffled high neckline, tiers of tulle and floral detailing on the bodice. The result was a romantic, whimsical effect, perfectly coordinated with the couple’s wedding decor. We’re sure this gorgeous gown will inspire other brides to think of incorporating colour into their attire.

Her baby’s breath hairstyle
Moore’s best friend and Garnier hairstylist Ashley Streicher gave the bride voluminous, vintage curls. To finish, baby’s breath floral appliqués were attached to the back of her hair using lash glue.

Her gorgeous pink makeup
Keeping with the pink theme, Jenn Streicher gave the bride an all over pink glam look, using pink eyeshadows, blush and lipstick for an overall cohesive look.  The Rodarte gown inspired the bride’s overall look—the epitome of the “blushing bride.”

The jasmine trellis for the ceremony
A dreamy wedding calls for a dreamy ceremony setup. Moore and Goldsmith said their I dos at sunset under an incredible pink trellis, made of jasmine flowers.

The OTT pampas grass aisle decor
Moore is just one of recent celebrities showing us just how hot pampas grass is for decor. With grass in hues of pink running down the aisles, this trend was taken to the next level.

The boho vibes
Instead of an aisle runner, the couple used several rugs to create an aisle, and placed a rug underneath the trellis where they stood for the ceremony.

The bride’s sexy second dress
Moore’s second dress was another unconventional one—a sexy black v-neck gown with cutouts in the side and straps across the back. She wore it while onstage at their reception at restaurant The Fig as new husband sang to her. Adorable!

When it comes to planning and designing a beautiful wedding, Megan Wappel of Megan Wappel Designs knows exactly how to do it. The Toronto-based events planner and stationery designer has brought to life some gorgeous weddings, so when it came time to plan her own wedding, she knew exactly the right way to do it. We turned to Wappel for her advice and inspiration for how to plan a wedding like a pro, and how she planned her own completely personalized celebration.

Weddingbells: What inspired your wedding details?
Megan Wappel: “Living in the big city was for sure an inspiration for our modern wedding. I wanted our guests to get the full Toronto experience, starting with our invitations. I created a book for our invite with pages devoted to the best restaurants, the Jays game schedule, shopping areas, hotels and of course our wedding details! It was essentially a guide to Toronto. The design set the tone to our wedding. Both of us were not born or raised in Toronto so the city has a special place in our hearts as it’s where we met and became each other’s person! My guests were a big inspiration to the wedding details, I needed them to not only be there for our nuptials, but I wanted them to have an amazing time in doing so! Everything from the food stations, desserts from both Truffle Cake and Pastry and Milk Bar, floorplan, custom games, and music were all chosen with them in mind! Our cultural backgrounds also played a large part in my design, subtly combining patterns, colours and textures that had meaning to us.”

WB: How did you come up with the theme for your wedding?
MW: 
“I knew I wanted to play up texture. With the use of the wood tables, brick walls, cement floors, plexi chairs and velvet couches, I really went for it in the texture department. My husband’s culture was also something I wanted to make sure was brought into the celebration. There were African symbols and patterns all throughout the wedding, bringing both our Canadian and African roots together seamlessly—if I do say so myself! To this day there are still symbols around the room that only he and I know about. My parents’ wedding had burgundy in it as well, which was one of the reasons I chose it for mine. It’s great that I was able to incorporate that as one of our main colours—a small token to honour their strong marriage.”

WB: What was your process for designing your wedding?
MW: 
“I don’t know that I had a process per se. I knew that step one was to find a venue I could work with without having to cover the entire space! I wanted the space to be raw and have some character of its own. The brick walls, high ceilings, cement floors and circle windows were a selling point for me. The size of the space was also crucial. You don’t want the space to be too big, or else the party gets lost! Once the venue was locked down I proceeded with colours, guest count and of course, the logistics of having the ceremony and reception in the same room! A lot of our guests were from out of town so I didn’t want them having to go all over the city for our wedding festivities. Although it was our wedding day, I also knew this would probably be the only time in our lives that our ENTIRE family from Saskatchewan, the U.S. and Africa would ever be all together in one room, so we wanted it to be a cherished and wonderful experience for everyone.”

WB: What was the biggest difference between designing your wedding and your clients’ weddings?
MW: “The biggest difference here is that my husband and I got to answer to ourselves and make the final decisions. The vision of the space and the way the evening flowed was all up to us. We got to take some chances with design and even presentation of food that perhaps clients may not of been able to visualize or take the chance on. Being a bit of an encyclopedia on rentals and custom offerings, I knew exactly what vendors I wanted to work with right away so I could go straight to the source. With every event we take on there is pressure to ensure our work lives up to the quality we are known for (this is what keeps us on our toes all the time!), this was no different when designing my own wedding, except maybe even a bit more pressure! It was actually nice to be on the other end of the spectrum designing memories for myself and the ones closest to me!”

WB: How do you guide a couple on choosing the right wedding colours and theme?
MW:
“In our initial consultation, I like to get a feel for the couple’s taste and vision before I provide any design input at all. Once their style is understood I then begin my take and suggestions on their vision, developing pages of inspiration, pushing the envelope, thinking of details that our clients would generally never muster up. We really strive to make no two events alike. Inspiration can always be pulled from previous events, but we will never replicate any of our designs. As a designer and a planner we are truly here to provide an experience for our couples and the guests so lots of design elements will have purpose.”

WB: Do you have any tips for couples on choosing what type of wedding decor to have?
MW: “Find a venue that fits your decor needs and style so you aren’t having to completely make over the room. Covering walls and floors gets very expensive and often doesn’t look as polished as it would if you found a room that suited your design needs in the first place. I’m such a believer in not cutting off rooms with arches or draping if you don’t have to. Let the room speak for itself then bring in all your accent decor and custom details as your budget permits.”

WB: What details should a couple prioritize if they have a limited budget?
MW: 
“Make a wish list and prioritize what you want to spend your money on. For example, if there are chairs you have always wanted to rent maybe they make enough impact that you don’t need to do charger plates. If you love all the beautiful details, then maybe opt for having a more intimate wedding and being able to splurge on the details because you don’t have as many guests to cater to.”

WB: What’s one of your biggest pieces of advice you have for couples planning their weddings?
MW: “Always remember why you are doing this in the first place. When things get stressful, it’s so important to sit back and remember that the reason you are getting married is because you have chosen your significant other to spend the rest of your life with. The day is there to celebrate your love, to be with family and friends and to make memories. A professional planner and designer can help eliminate the stress and elevate your experience.”

Jill Lansky’s Modern-Chic Wedding In British Columbia

Real Weddings

Jill Lansky of The August Diaries' Modern-Chic Wedding In British Columbia -

For Toronto influencer Jill Lansky of the popular blog The August Diaries and her new husband Andrew Cameron, their wedding felt like a full circle moment. The pair met at the destination wedding for their respective best friends and clicked instantly. “It was a four-day wedding and we became inseparable,” Jill reveals. “Leaving that weekend we knew it was more than just a fling, so we decided to make it work.” The couple dated long-distance, with Jill living in Vancouver at the time and Andrew living in Kingston, Ontario. “Four years after that fateful wedding, we stood opposite each other at our own wedding, this time with those same best friends as a bridesmaid (and officiant!) and groomsman at ours,” Jill shares. “The tables had turned, and it was such a meaningful and satisfying closing of the loop.”

The rambling, rustic beauty of the Okanagan Valley served as the backdrop to the couple’s June nuptials. “We both felt colours were critical to the event, because they set the tone for everything, so having a palette that complemented beautiful B.C. was a top priority,” Jill says. With natural shades of green, balanced with white and gold and minimal touches of black and wood, the couple’s celebration was a modern-chic al fresco affair. “Our floral designers completely embraced our vision of something non-traditional with very little colour,” Jill says. “They created a slightly rustic and earthy vibe, with lots of green and wildflowers to complement rather than overpower the rows of grapes in the vineyard.”

The details prior to the wedding turned out to be some of the most important. From the outset, Jill shares, the rings were a treasured detail. “Tamara of Toronto’s Studio 1098 designed my custom black diamond, white halo deco-style ring, which was the ring I always wanted without even knowing it,” she says. “She also created Andrew’s brushed-gold band, which was so, so perfect.” Another detail that was important from the get-go was Jill’s wedding dress, which she purchased it 18 months prior to the occasion. “I saw a Calvin Klein ready-to-wear dress on Net-A-Porter about a month after our engagement and ordered it—it was my very first wedding purchase,” Jill explains. “I loved that it was white, clean, simple and timeless. I will be dyeing this one black so I can wear it for years to come—it’s just too good to only wear once!”

A memorable moment from the day was exchanging vows. “We wrote are own, and they were so different yet so similar—heartfelt, intimate, funny and with a Harry Potter reference or two,” Jill says. After the ceremony, guests mingled and signed the hybrid photobook and guestbook. “We have some marvelous and hilarious gems in there, and it now sits on our coffee table as an incredible reminder of a great night.”

As the party went into the night, the DJ kept guests of all ages dancing. “The first person on the dance floor was Andrew’s 85 year-old grandfather who just couldn’t get enough,” Jill reveals. “Every single guest made an appearance on the dance floor throughout the night, thanks to DJ John Byrne.” A car arrived at the reception loaded with A&W burgers, which proved to be the ultimate late-night snack for their guests. “We’re talking a car full of Mama and Papa burgers that could feed an army,” Jill says with a laugh. “Nothing is more satisfying than a truck load of fast food after a night of dancing, and the guests looked at the delivery person like she was their late night hero!”

A Playful Modern Garden Party Wedding In Toronto

Real Weddings

Mike and Shannon’s New York City engagement happened on their one year anniversary at a Jays vs. Yankees baseball game. “Our first date was in Toronto at a Jays vs. Yankees game, and we thought it would be a great way to celebrate—by re-creating our first date,” Shannon shares. Prior to watching the game, Mike got on one knee and proposed. “It made our game that much more special, and we even caught two game balls, which I like to say was an engagement present from the MLB!”

Their venue, Evergreen Brickworks, initially wasn’t in the running in their selection of locations to host their wedding. “I’ve worked there for the past two and a half years, and I manage the hospitality and events department, which means I’ve seen countless events come and go,” Shannon explains. “Because of that, I thought it wouldn’t be special—but I quickly realized it was quite the opposite. I’ve felt the magic of Evergreen for years, and I couldn’t imagine a more perfect venue for our special day.”

For decor, the couple stuck with neutral colours with lots of greenery. With the lush gardens, colourful graffiti and exposed brick of the venue, they wanted their details to complement the space. “We decided on a playful, yet modern, garden party feel with whitewashed wood tables, rattan chairs and chargers, and lots and lots of greenery accents,” Shannon shares.

The bride and groom stuck with tradition and had their “first look” as Shannon walked down the aisle. “It was probably the only traditional thing we felt strongly about,” she says. “The emotions and energy of that exact moment where we saw each other for the first time, amongst our family and friends, was really a once-in-a-lifetime feeling.”

elegant mauve details to inspire your wedding - bride and groom

When dreaming up this amazing styled shoot, the team was inspired by shades of mauve, blush, cream and gold. “We wanted to combine modern glam with a touch of romantic flair,” says Chloe of D’Love Affair Weddings & Event. The Waterfront Ballroom at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel in Vancouver was the perfect venue to bring this vision to life.

The gorgeous details include stationery with delicate calligraphy, a blush canopy and seasonal blooms. The two Pronovias 2019 gowns featured in the shoot have us swooning with the prettiest lace detailing. Whimsical details include the gold laser-cut signs, which matched the chairs and the candleholders perfectly, as well as handcrafted paper flowers. Sweet treats include a donut bar, with donuts displayed on acrylic for an elevated vibe, and gorgeous handpainted cakes displayed against a circular backdrop.

All photos via goop.

Gwyneth Paltrow just revealed the photos of her nuptials to Brad Falchuk—and they’re full of details that are as dreamy awe-inspiring as we’d expect them to be. The actress and goop founder tied the knot with the Glee producer in a ceremony in Paltrow’s backyard in East Hampton, New York on Sept. 29, among an intimate group of close family and friends. The celeb-studded guest list included Robert Downey Jr., Cameron Diaz and husband Benji Madden, as well as director Steven Spielberg and Rob Lowe.

Paltrow and Falchuk’s wedding was nothing short of spectacular, and we’ve narrowed down the details you’ll definitely want to incorporate into your own celebration.

Jerry Seinfeld and his wife hosted the rehearsal dinner, which included details as divine as the wedding day itself. Famous Argentinian chef Francis Mallmann was flown in from Chile to cater the event, using his signature style of “live-firing cooking,” barbecuing and smoking meat and vegetables to perfection. Guests dined al-fresco in a dreamy setup under twinkle lights.

Instead of a traditional wedding cake, the couple opted for 90 mini cakes for each person, half in the bride’s favourite flavour and half in the groom’s favourite. We love the idea of dainty, elegant cakes served individually!
