Am I ever excited to finally show you Devin and Amanda’s stunning indoor garden wedding at The Globe and Mail Centre! Amanda came to us with the most pretty palette in mind and we couldn’t have been more thrilled to bring it to life.
First though, is a little info about Devin and Amanda, because they are the sweetest couple and I love their story. They met at as teens while golfing and admired each other from afar, but it was ten years later, at a TIFF event, that the two hit it off after a discussion about their passion for food! While Amanda was managing her Ulcerative Colitis & still remains battling Lyme Disease, Devin was looking for a new place to live in 2017. The Leela’s opened their home to him, and what was planned to be a year turned into a 4 year stay! This is where “Leels & Heals” blossomed their unique love and charm as the “flowers” we are today. Devin then couldn’t resist asking for her hand in marriage on January 24th, 2020! The timing all worked perfectly for Devin, as Amanda’s best friend had a fashion event that was hosted at Casa Loma on January 24th, 2022. Amanda was set to wear one of her designs that night, which happened to also be a winter white. Amanda recalls, “We were enjoying the event when my friend told me that her dad organized a wine tasting with their family friend who worked at Blueblood Restaurant, located in Casa Loma. She listed all my favourite wines and I was sold on going for that tasting. Once we made our way down the stairs to the wine cellar the glass doors opened and I saw a ponytail popping out from the back of the cellar. My husband’s sister, Monica, is also a photographer and it was her ponytail peaking out. At that moment, I saw Devin from the corner of my eye, my voice went up 8 octaves and my jaw dropped to the floor. He had a whole thing planned to say, but he nervously got down on one knee so fast and asked me to marry him! My mind could not compute what was even happening from the shock so he had to ask it again, but it was always A MILLION TIMES YES!” Plans for an amazing wedding were on the horizon and I am so thrilled we were a part of them. See below for every fabulous decor and floral detail we created.
Together with wedding planner Ashley Pigott, our team created the most magical and dramatic indoor garden for the beautiful couple. Perhaps one of the most notable design features was the massive double tiered floral chandelier suspended over the dance floor. Every detail was curated with love and passion and I’m so thankful we were a part of it.
