This cou­ple’s stun­ning city cel­e­bra­tion was filled with haute de­tails.


FROM STE­FANIE: We chose not to have an over­all theme, but we did want things to look co­he­sive. We took a lot of in­spi­ra­tion from the re­cep­tion venue, the De­sign Ex­change, and its stream­lined, mod­ern style. We wanted to play with bal­ance, pro­por­tion and shape for the decor. To in­fuse our per­son­al­i­ties into the wed­ding vi­su­als we in­cluded pinks and reds, colours we both love. They played re­ally well with the warm tones at the venue. Our best and most vivid mem­ory is at the church, right be­fore the cer­e­mony. Rondie and I didn’t do a first look, so the mo­ment the dou­ble doors opened was the very first time we saw each other that day. We could not stop smil­ing. Hands down, our favourite wed­ding de­tail was the flow­ers. Jor­dana from White Oak Flower is one of the most cre­ative and tal­ented peo­ple we’ve ever met. She un­der­stood our vi­sion per­fectly and brought it all to life. Since we trusted her so much, we were pretty hands-off and let her do her thing. Our jaws dropped when we got to the venue and saw how ev­ery­thing came to­gether. I adored my wed­ding gown and cape com­bi­na­tion. I knew I wanted a clean, sleek sil­hou­ette, with a glamorous look, and this dress was ex­actly that. Pair­ing the Theia dress with the Berta cape added drama and di­men­sion, and brought the whole look to­gether. Plus, who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle? Our first dance was “Kiss From a Rose” by Seal. This was one of the eas­i­est choices we made. We are both huge karaoke fa­nat­ics and this is Rondie’s go-to karaoke song. He loves to sing it to me—or to any­one who will lis­ten! We were laugh­ing and smil­ing through the whole first dance as the song played. We don’t like to take our­selves too se­ri­ously and we loved that it was a bit of a silly mo­ment.
