A Colourful, Vintage Wedding In Toronto

An Intimate, Vintage Wedding in Toronto - Bride and Groom

Paul proposed to Beth on their second annual camping trip in Haliburton. “We took a hike to a nearby look-out, and as we looked at the beautiful view, Paul read Walt Whitman’s poem “Song of the Open Road.” I could feel his heart beating faster and knew something big was going to happen. After he read the poem, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I immediately said yes!” Beth says.

For their wedding, the couple chose a vibrant English garden theme. “My starting point was collecting vintage milk glass vases. My mom and sister searched local thrift stores for different shapes and sizes—we could not get enough milk glass!” Beth explains. “I wanted multiple single stem vases on all the tables and throughout the venue holding an assortment of flowers in bursts of vibrant colours—my inspiration came from an issue of Weddingbells!”

Garden roses, dahlias, pink hypericum berries and waxflower were a few of the flowers the couple chose for their big day. “I love colour, so the vibrant shades of raspberry, fuchsia and eggplant found in the flowers were carried through on the invitations, candle holders and the DIY ribbon wall. We also added hints of gold, navy and white to highlight the brighter shades,” Beth says.

One of the couple’s favourite parts of their day was the intimate and personal ceremony. “A special touch to our ceremony was having our rings passed to each of our guests. We wanted everyone who touched our lives to touch our rings, the symbol of our marriage and our next chapter together as a couple,” Beth explains.
