An Elegant Wedding in Kitchener, Ontario

Celebrations don’t get much more sophisticated than Leah and Jeff’s elegant wedding in Kitchener, Ontario. The two wed on a sunny afternoon at the beautiful Hillcrest Mennonite Church and then posed for pictures on a lush, grassy plain. The bride and her bridesmaids carried lovely bouquets made of white peonies and yellow billy buttons, adding a fun and unexpected twist to the elegant wedding celebration. Following the heartfelt ceremony, the newlyweds and their 180 guests moved to the Victoria Park Pavillion, where rounded tables covered in dark purple tablecloths and towering floral centerpieces transformed the hall into the perfect reception venue for the sophisticated nuptials. The silver accents found on chairs and table decor further accented the theme of the elegant wedding. Following a fabulous meal, friends and family members were offered a handful of sugary options, including various sweets from a candy buffet (how great does that sound!) and a gorgeous, three-layer cake adorned with purple and white sugar flowers. As the night progressed, the couple and their guests moved to the ample dance floor to dance the night away, ending the elegant wedding on high note.
