Wedding Bells (East) - - Details -

JUNE 3, 2017 FROM JEN: For the wed­ding, I went with an or­ganic, mixed pal­ette geared to­ward evok­ing a cer­tain mood. I wanted to in­cor­po­rate mod­ern, min­i­mal­ist touches in­stead of be­ing locked into a colour scheme with matchy-matchy ev­ery­thing. We ended up pick­ing soft, airy hues of blue and grey for the brides­maids, who each chose the shade and style she liked best. The decor was mostly white, grey and black, and hints of mauve, blush pink and teal green. In­spired by the tra­di­tion of Moroc­can wed­ding blan­kets, we chose a spe­cial rug to stand on dur­ing the cer­e­mony. Along with dou­bling as decor, it serves as a me­mento for us to re­mem­ber our spe­cial day. As long as we keep the rug, we will al­ways have the spot we were mar­ried on wher­ever we go! I DIY-ed a lot of the re­cep­tion de­tails. I de­signed all the sta­tionery, from the in­vi­ta­tions and seat­ing chart to the menus and place cards—I was re­ally proud of how they turned out. I also hand-cut and hand-dyed over 46 me­tres of muslin fab­ric for the ta­ble run­ners. The florist and plan­ner ex­e­cuted my vi­sion for the venues per­fectly. Kristina of Minim De­signs cre­ated the most lush-yet-re­strained ar­range­ments for the al­tar and re­cep­tion ta­bles, and in­cluded some of my favourite flow­ers, such as lilacs and anemones. I spent months sourc­ing the per­fect mix of matte, min­i­mal­ist bud vases for the re­cep­tion ta­bles, which she filled with sculp­tural stems and fo­liage. Jessica of Bisous Events did a stel­lar job of styling the al­tar and the ta­ble set­tings—it was spot-on to what I en­vi­sioned. The cer­e­mony was truly the high­light of our day. Walk­ing down the aisle into a room filled with all the peo­ple I love most to pro­fess my love and com­mit­ment to my new hus­band was an over­whelm­ingly beau­ti­ful mo­ment.
