Bougainvillea Wedding At The Great Hall

The white room at the Great Hall in Toronto was the perfect neutral backdrop for our bougainvillea wedding creative. Vibrant  blends of fuchsia, pink and coral florals, combined with lush bougainvillea came to life in the all white historical space. Our life size bougainvillea trees certainly created an impressive display for the ceremony, but it was the foliage and bougainvillea floral arch that really set the stage for such a beautiful display. If you have been following along on our blog, you know by now, just how much I love to mix modern and classic elements in many of our designs. So heres how we did it for the wedding creative. The wedding flowers and decor were displayed in modern white plexi boxes  lined up on half the gallery tables while the other half were accented with beautiful over sized crystal vases. Classic floral blends included garden roses, the most perfect ranunculus paired with trailing foliage. Stunning images like this don’t just happen and so we always so thankful to work along side so many Toronto wedding vendors. For a full line up of vendors scroll to the bottom of post. Thank you to Wedluxe for featuring creative effort.

Elegant Royal York Hotel Wedding

It was a beautiful fall day for Alexa and Jon Micheal’s elegant Royal York Hotel Wedding in Toronto. The decor and flowers were designed to accent the existing beauty of this historical Toronto gem. No detail was overlooked and even the couples little pooch had an adorable floral wreath.

Sometimes our down town Toronto weddings have an urban or modern vibe, however Jon Michael and Alexa, wanted to embrace the romantic nostalgia of the iconic Royal York. We did this with classic ivory and blush flowers on our sleek mirrored stands which lined the aisle for the ceremony. In addition, two over sized gold urns filled with roses, hydrangeas, and foliage created a beautiful focal point and alter area for the couple to say their ‘Ido’s’.

Finally, thank you to Wedluxe Magazine for featuring this elegant Royal York Hotel wedding on their blog and to Found In Love for the stunning images. Also, as always, it is such a pleasure to work with our sweet friends at Laura & Co. Events.
