An Elegant Vintage Wedding in Haldimand, Ontario


Think an elegant vintage wedding for 150 guests can’t be planned in 60 days? Well then you haven’t met Elizabeth and David. The two planned their dream day in just two months, spending plenty of late nights in finding the right vendors and putting all the details and DIY elements of their party together — and they did all this on top of studying for their final university exams! “We wanted a summer wedding but David was playing with the Toronto Argonauts. We didn’t wait to wait a whole year before getting married,” Elizabeth laughs. Their wedding was an elegant affair that included decor like sparkling chandeliers, vintage china place settings and a beautiful lace-motif cake reminiscent of Elizabeth’s dress. “David and I were so happy with the way everything turned out. Everything we pictured came to life,” Elizabeth says.
