DEAR GRAY MAGAZINE CREATIVE FEATURE | Tobermory with Kurtz Orpia Photography

Earlier this summer one of our bouquets and floral crowns had an  adventure all their own. I’m a bit of a control freak…so the idea of sending my babies off on their own with Kurtz Orpia Photography to photograph on the gorgeous shores of Georgian Bay sent my tummy turning. I knew they’d be in great hands with Kurtz and I knew there would be a great story behind their little adventure…but still…I worried! I think Kurtz worried a bit too! But Wowza..what a lovely adventure these three had together…Kurtz, a bouquet and a floral crown of jasmine!  Throw in a lovely model and the stunning shores of Tobermorey Provincial Park and you have a dreamy collection of images. Enjoy my friends…as fall arrives, these lovely images have me dreaming of summer and the sweet memories that it brings.

WHISTLE BEAR GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB | Sarah & Kevin

WHISTLE BEAR GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB | Sarah & Kevin

Sarah & Kevin’s Whistle Bear Golf Club wedding is equal parts soft and romantic with simplistic yet elegant touches that abound their day. The couple choose the picturesque setting of the Grand River bank as the back drop for their first glimpse of each other …. nothing could have been more romantic or ideal for them. Sarah carried a stunning bouquet of trailing jasmine vine, blush garden roses and sweet as can be ranunculus and blush anemone and lush peony blossoms down the aisle for their cocktail ceremony. Which was held in the gorgeous Forest View Room at Whistle Bear Golf & Country Club. Sarah & Kevin then welcomed guests to dine in the Forest View Dining Room. The atmsophere continued with the simplistic and unformal elegance of the afternoon…which was simply adorned with gorgeous arrangements of blush hydrangea, creamy blush toned roses and anemone and textured blushing bride lucadendron … that playfully bounced off the simplistic white linen and white washed walls and ceiling of the dining room. We are completely smitten by how lovely Karina-Anne Photography documented Sarah & Kevin’s ever so dreamy white wedding day.

EARTH TO TABLE FARM | Sarah & Ben … An elegant barn wedding in Flamborough by the Ancaster Mill

The spectacular property just west of the city known as the Earth to Table Farm by The Ancaster Mill was the gorgeous setting for Sarah & Ben’s  classic barn wedding. Sarah & Ben selected the farm for its airy and romantic feel, and the relaxed locale is unique and beautiful …it certainly  didn’t disappoint! The Sue Gallo Designs event crew created a spectacular atmosphere of lush eucalyptus and ivy garlands … swaths of greenery that adorned each of the ouster dining harvest tables throughout the bar. Gorgeous florals in rich hues of greens, blushes with marsala and plums adorned the center family tables and head table. Romantic candle light completed the chic and unfussy ambiance throughout the barn. The result? Breathtaking! Wanting relaxed and lush bouquets, we designed stunning eucalyptus, dahlia and rose bouquets that set perfectly against the gorgeous tones of the just as lovely Two Birds Bridesmaids frocks and of course Sarah’s sophisticated & stunning Christos bridal gown. And the horses…well…who doesn’t love a wedding with horses!

Every dose of gorgeousness was perfectly captured by Lindsay Coulter Photography.

SPENCER’S AT THE WATERFRONT | Nicole & Jeff’s Retro Vintage Ceremony

Spencer’s at the Waterfronts light and airy Observatory was the setting for Nicole & Jeff’s retro vintage wedding. Surrounded by their family and friends the couple tied the knot with sweeping views of lake Ontario.  Their evening of dining and dancing began with a sweet ceremony beneath a retro inspired floral and ribbon back drop as they exchanged vows and pledged their forever with each other. Fresh blooms of summer peony, lush hydrangea, delicate dahlia, sweet anemone and romantic garden roses in pastel goodness of ivories, blushes and pinks in vintage inspired hob nob jars adorned the Observatory for a one of a kind wedding. Warehouse 84 provided a comfy vintage lounge that awaited guests in the lobby of the Observatory and where they could spy a whimsical donut wall … we heard they all could hardly await for when the delicious treats by Sweet Celebrations made their debut.  We were simply head over heals and utterly smitten with this fabulously fun wedding and the perfect images by photographer Kurtz Orphia who captured just a moment of this perfect wedding day designed by the Sue Gallo Designs Event Team. Sue Gallo Spencer Smith 3 (2 of 45)Sue Gallo Spencer Smith 3 (1 of 45)Sue Gallo Spencer Smith 3 (19 of 45)Sue Gallo Spencer Smith 3 (21 of 45)Sue Gallo Spencer Smith 3 (22 of 45)Sue Gallo Spencer Smith 3 (17 of 45)Sue Gallo Spencer Smith 3 (18 of 45)Sue Gallo Spencer Smith 3 (26 of 45)Sue Gallo Spencer Smith 3 (14 of 45)Sue Gallo Spencer Smith 3 (34 of 45)Sue Gallo Spencer Smith 3 (31 of 45)Sue Gallo Spencer Smith 3 (44 of 45)

RUSTIC ELEGANCE | Ancaster Mill Wedding

Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (16 of 143)Our weekend wedding in the Governor’s Room at the Ancaster Mill was pure romance. Working along with our amazing couple, helping them to bring their vision to fruition was such pleasure. A classic and neutral color palette of creams, whites, ivory, and greys was selected to enhance the beauty of the Ancaster Mill setting. Choosing to keep their ceremony simple, and use the elegance of the Miller’s Chapel to enhance their marriage ceremony, blush toned florals with trailing vines and glowing candles adorned the fireplace hearth while vases of hydrangea, roses and sweet summer peony completed the aisle decor. The SGD event team created arrangements overflowing with hydrangea, roses and ranunculus with trailing ivies and Italian ruscus to adorn their dining tables in the Mill’s Governor’s Room. A simple but sweet draped garland lined back drop completed the head table scape, with an abundance of romantic candle light adding a romantic and beautiful ambiance to the room. Mini wood logs held place cards, along with wood slices added a simple but rustic touch, while guests received a truly iconic Canadian  treat of mini bottles of Canadian Maple Syrup. Grey linen table runners from Simply Beautiful Decor completed the table scapes.   In keeping with their wish to keep the atmosphere relaxed and family orientated, family members baked the delicious vanilla cupcakes with hand dipped oreo pops as after dinner treats. As always, Kurtz Orpia captured our gorgeous florals and decor simply perfectly!Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (139 of 143)Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (127 of 143)Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (129 of 143)Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (131 of 143)Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (135 of 143)Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (142 of 143)Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (97 of 143) Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (100 of 143) Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (102 of 143)Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (13 of 143)Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (29 of 143)Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (35 of 143)Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (20 of 143)Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (24 of 143)Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (9 of 143)Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (32 of 143)Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (48 of 143) Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (88 of 143)Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (59 of 143)Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (30 of 143)Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (114 of 143) Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (109 of 143) Sue Gallo_governors_room_ancaster_mill (52 of 143)
