NADA GAWAD & EDDIE EDWARD
FROM NADA: Our wedding was a DIY
project. From the vision and design to buying and making all the decor, I did everything. The bridal party put in serious work with setup, especially with
the floating candles. The groom and groomsmen also worked hard unloading a moving-truck-worth of decor and polishing the copper arch. We really liked the richness of all the different shades we
chose for the wedding decor. Especially with the white, winter backdrop, burgundy and plum mixed really well, then peach and gold added some warmth. Other than that, we kept it simple with candles and greenery. My dad and I built the doughnut
wall. My dad is super handy, so armed with Pinterest pictures, we took a trip to Home Depot and brought it to life.
We were so happy with the outcome—it looked awesome and we loved that it was homemade! We had a movie-premiere
style photo booth experience. It included a custom step-and-repeat backdrop printed with our names and the date, and as guests came from the ceremony to the reception, they stepped out onto a red carpet to have a full-length photo taken before proceeding to their tables. After dinner the photo booth re-opened with fun props including a big cut-out of Eddie’s head from his soccer games—he plays for the Ottawa Fury FC.
