A Bright, Airy Floral-Filled Wedding in Toronto

  |  By Katherine Nelson
A Bright and Airy September Wedding in Toronto, Ontario - Bride and Groom

On a cold, snowy night in 2017, Brad convinced a reluctant Kara to join him while he took their dogs out for a walk. On their walk, Brad brought up a conversation they had earlier about proposals. "Getting engaged seemed like light years away, but I indulged," Kara shares. "I explained that I wanted something intimate and added that he should talk to his mom about it beforehand to calm his nerves." Behind her, Kara heard Brad quietly say, "Really? I don’t feel that nervous right now..." As she turned around to ask him what he meant, Brad pulled a ring box out of his pocket. "He went on to say a bunch of lovely romantic things, none of which I heard because I immediately went deaf and just kept yelling 'Is this a joke?!' over and over again," Kara recalls.

For their wedding colours, Kara and Brad chose a neutral theme of white, blush and grey with lots of greenery mixed in. "We wanted to keep the space looking bright and airy," Kara explains. "The blush brought in a touch of softness and femininity, and the greenery contrasted with an earthy, natural feel." Hints of gold were also found throughout the decor to tie everything together.

Above all, Kara and Brad's favourite decor detail was their flowers. "I went back and forth a lot, and really had no prior knowledge of flowers," Kara shares. "From our wedding arch and the table garland to the exact hue of rose I wanted, Rikki Marcone was able to turn my very vague vision into reality. Our florals were simple, romantic and fresh." Another favourite detail was their naked, watercolour-styled wedding cake. "We wanted a naked cake, however I had seen a post that Andrea of Sweet Sister Chic Sister had done of a beautiful watercolour-styled floral cake," Kara explains. "Andrea was able to incorporate both designs into our cake and it turned out beautifully, not to mention delicious. We were floored!"

For Kara and Brad, their first look was the most memorable moment of their special day. "We were both so nervous the morning of the wedding," Kara recalls. "Being able to see each other before the ceremony, though still very surreal and emotional, definitely helped calm our nerves."
