Clear blue skies weren't the only shining element at Kathleen and Gregory's summer wedding. A cheerful colour palette and sparkling elements also featured prominently in this celebration. Kathleen incorporated glitter, crystals and rhinestones into everything from her table numbers to her centrepieces and even her lace wedding dress, which she describes as "blingtastic."
Meeting as undergrads at Queens University, the couple chose to get married in a parish in the small town of St. Marys, Ontario. The best moment for Kathleen was walking into the church and seeing an emotional Greg at the altar, "although he may deny the tears," laughs Kathleen.
Her bridesmaids wore dark purple strapless dresses from Alfred Angelo and all (including the bride) carried hand-tied bouquets filled with white and pink roses with accents of purple lavender. Following the same colour scheme, the couple's dessert table featured a rhinestone tree surrounded by white marshmallows, pink gumballs and purple Mike & Ike's candies, among others indulgences. The showpiece of the sweet table spread was Kathleen and Gregory's beautiful three-tier wedding cake, which was crowned with flowers.
After the celebration the couple jetted off to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, which was a complete surprise to Kathleen. "No one knew where we were going except Greg and one of my bridesmaids so she could check my luggage to make sure that I had everything I needed," explains Kathleen. "I didn’t find out where we were going until we arrived at the airport."
