Theres just something about an out door wedding ceremony, followed by tented reception. If I am honest, some our most beloved designs are the ones curated for outdoor and estate venues. Our stunning couple, Katie and Taylor were childhood sweet hearts since they were 14! Their long panned for nuptials took place on a beautiful day at Harding Waterfront Estate with their closet friends and family. If I am honest, some our most beloved designs are the ones curated for outdoor and estate venues. and Katie and Taylors’ was no exception. Although the grounds at Harding are the perfect canvas for stunning ceremony, we couldn’t wait to add our pretty floral touch. Our team created a magical white floral aisle detailed with the most delicate and wispy blooms but if I had to pick my favourite design element, it was the large hanging floral feature suspended in the tent. Created with blocked florals, the look was artful and unique. Working closely with Laura from Muse Events, the wedding design included stylish black details giving a fresh and modern vibe. Conratulations Katie and Taylor! Thank you for trusting us with your special day. For a full list of vendors, see bottom of post.
Who doesn’t love a pretty garden wedding, especially when the reception is an el fresco affair on the stunning terrace at Graydon Hall Manor. I’m so thrilled to share with you Catherine and Mathews beautiful day. The beautiful couples’ love story began when they met, both as bridal party attendants in the wedding party of mutual friends. Catherine from Toronto and Mathew from Detroit, decided a long distance relationship was worth it, and the rest is history. Mathew proposed on the top of a ski hill where Catherines’ family has a ski chalet. The stylish couple set a wedding date and the rest is history.
Jessy worked closely with the couple as well as wedding planner Joy by Janice to design the most beautiful day filled with a classic palette of soft pinks and so many pretty details. Catherine shared “we were super impressed with Jessy, who really showcased amazing ideas that were unique to us. It can be overwhelming planning florals for a wedding, and we felt like we were in the best hands to make those decisions, with Jessy and the team at Rachel A. Clingen. ” Thank you Catherine and Mathew for trusting us with your special day. For a full list of vendors see bottom of post.
I’m so excited to finally share Connor and Madisons’ stunning tent wedding at Muskoka Bay Club. If your a hockey fan, you might recognize Connor Brown a former Maple Leaf who currently plays for the Washington Capitols. During the summer break of 2021, the hockey star married beautiful Madison on the gorgeous golf course at Muskoka Bay Club. It wasn’t the hockey world though, that brought these two together. Madison and Connor met in grade eight in the school gym. They stayed friends. until they started dating in Madisons first year in university. Madison shares their engagement story. “I always used to tell him I think 25 is going to be the best year of my life, so he knew he wanted to get engaged after I turned 25. Because the season was so busy, it didn’t happen until January 2019. We went to Bahamas with all of our closest hockey friends and the first day we got there he had asked to go for dinner just the two of us. Since we were there with all of our friends I said I’d rather have dinner with them. When I went to the girls and asked our dinner plan they all said they were going to do their own thing so I was so confused. We got to the restaurant just Connor and I and our table wasn’t ready so we walked down the beach to a pier at the end and he proposed and when we walked back all of our friends were waiting for a beach sunset dinner for us!” The rest is history and on that special day last summer the two said ‘I do’. I loved our design meetings with these two. And if I may add, Connor may be a pro hockey player, but he also has an inkling for design. I love how invested he was in every detail! Their dreamy wedding was everything a girl, (and Connor) could want.. elegant, sophisticated, delicate and pretty. I remember installing the floral canopy with our team, and loved the transformation of the reception tent. We worked closely with wedding planner Ashley Pigott on this one so it was definitely one for the books! For a full list of vendors see bottom of post.
