Amalfi Inspired Bridal Shower At Graydon Hall

Sierra’s Almalfi inspired bridal shower at Graydon Hall has us dreaming of lemon markets and lemoncello. Along side some other amazing Toronto wedding industry folks, our team helped  transform the terrace and dining room at Graydon Hall into an Italian Piazza.  The atmosphere was complete with a Mercato where guests could pick out some of their favourite treats, as well as colourful vespa’s and an accordion player. The  beautiful flowers and decor were full of colours which were accented with fresh fruit.

Peach Grove Celebration At Graydon Hall

On a hot summer day in August David and I celebrated the 25th anniversary of Rachel A. Clingen Wedding & Event Design with many of our Toronto wedding industry friends and staff, that have in one way or another, contributed to the success of  our little company over the years. The summer soiree was hosted at beautiful Graydon Hall, who’s service and food was second to none. Our team transformed the terrace into a floral infused peach grove. Guests dined under peach trees at long white washed gallery tables loaded with crates of peaches and flowers.   We were touched by the kindness of so many who contributed to the day by sharing their respective talents and products with us to make it such a special occasion.  Every vendor mentioned in the credits below went above and beyond and we are truly touched by everyone’s generosity.

A Rustic Elegant Wedding At Graydon Hall

Erin and Simon’s rustic yet elegant wedding at Graydon Hall Manor, was designed with a lovely pastel palette of flowers which included the prettiest little blue blooms. We used garden roses, hydrangeas, and mixed foliage to create a custom floral arch that graced the gorgeous gardens at Graydon Hall and made for a fabulous photo back drop!  Guests would later dine under the the beautiful tent on the terrace which over looks the stunning venue grounds. Simon and Erin love rustic details. Birch slices were used to enhance the floral centrepieces and natural branches were used for the ceremony arch. Thankful to work with Laura and Co. on this one and to Carbon and Craft for sharing their lovely images with us!
