Laura And Brads Amalfi Inspired Wedding At Ricardas

We might not have been in Italy, but Brad and Lauras’ stunning wedding at Ricardas was bursting with all the beauty the Almalfi has to offer! Laura explains, ” I have Italian heritage and Brads family loves vacationing In the Amalfi so we came up with a colourful fun vibrant Amalfi coast themed wedding and it had to include lemon trees! The bright colours and fun palette also represent us as a couple.”

The task was a high calling, but together with wedding planner Melissa Baum, and our team, Ricardas venue was transformed into the sweet couples dream.  Details included custom graphics for napkins and a tiled seating chart. The life size lemon tree we designed was a show stopper and I couldn’t be more proud of our team for an incredible installation! Built in just a few hours, the masterpiece loaded with hundreds of lemons and foraged fresh branches towered over 18 feet and created the most impressive focal point. It wasn’t just the lemon tree that made the magic, but also we have to talk about the stunning bougainvillea chuppah. Our team designed a ‘like it grew there’ type of canopy with layers of bougainvillea vines and topped it with the family heirloom silk topper. Laura shared her sentiments with us, “We love how creative you were and how you took my vision and elevated it beyond belief. You understood how to execute the perfect lemon tree and bougainvillea Chuppah, BUT you were also playful, and fun with your vision and creativity.” Thank you Laura and Brad for trusting us with such a special assignment! What a pleasure to work with you! For a full list of vendors, see bottom of post.

Brittany & Ethans Beautiful Backyard Tent Wedding

Planning a wedding around pandemic restrictions meant that Ethan and Brittany had to make some shift in plans. But that didn’t stop these love birds from finding a way to host the most magical and dreamy wedding.  Their once larger scale venue planned wedding, would instead end up being the most intimate and beautiful event hosted in the brides parents backyard. Working closely with Toronto wedding planner Michelle from Fab Fete, our team transformed a clear top tent into a dreamy garden for both the ceremony and reception. The sweet couple who grew up just five minutes apart said their I do’s under a gorgeous floating floral chuppah for their jewish ceremony. During the  cocktail hour around the pool, we transformed the tent once again to the most stunning reception space and created modern garden vibes. Accented with table top floral bridges and the most beautiful collection of crystal and candles the guest tables brought sophistication and elegance to this backyard affair. We asked Brittany why they chose us to create the magic for their special day. “We chose Rachel A. Clingen, because we felt that no one can do what their team can.” Brittany added.. “I also liked that every event they create is unique and never a copy!” Thankyou Brittany!  Mazel Tov to our beautiful couple!

Zack And Cara’s Stylish Garden Wedding At Graydon Hall

Zack and Cara’s beautiful garden wedding at one of our favourite wedding venues, Graydon Hall, in Toronto was designed to incorporate both the brides love of organic greens and the grooms love for modern accents. I loved our design meetings together,  as well as the challenge to blend and balance these two styles and their personalities in the decor and flowers. Our team created a gorgeous chuppah that was meant to look a like a garden structure that had been over grown with flowers. Guests dined on the terrace under a clear top tent. To keep the look organic for Cara, garden vines and trailing greens detailed the canopy. Guest tables were detailed with cascading flowers in crystal vessels. We brought in an element of modern sophistication by adding a pop of black in the water goblets and in the lounge area. Congratulatons Zack and Cara!
