Lovely pink and yellow floral arrangements and matching fondant flowers atop a seven-tier cupcake tower set the simple, yet elegant, colour scheme for Tara and Jeffrey’s wedding. The couple achieved an ambiance of romantic elegance at their venue, Graydon Hall Manor, and they took advantage of the beautiful setting by taking photos in the lush courtyard beneath a bright blue sky and hosting their reception in a dashing chandelier-lit ballroom. For a perfect end to the day, the DJ spun their wedding song “When I’m With You” by Sheriff for the second time—however, this time Tara and Jeffrey’s friends and family formed a circle around the couple and belted out the lyrics while the two danced in each other’s arms. “It still gives me chills,” Tara recalls. “What an incredible night.”
