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!

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.
