Bride Alexandra was introduced to us through an old colleague (whom she was marrying) and we were more than happy to help with some summer florals for their understated but still elegant wedding on Toronto Island.
Alex knew she wanted something colourful to pop against the wooded backdrop of the ceremony and reception location so we selected a warm and cheerful palette of pink and coral with touches of ivory. Her bridal bouquet was a stunning combination of luscious full peonies, free spirit cabbage roses and spray roses. The groom, looking ever so dapper in his ivory tuxedo jacket wore a coral cabbage rose boutonniere.
The ceremony took place under the trellis entrance to the The Rectory Cafe on Ward’s Island, leading into the restaurant patio. The flag stone patio is surrounded by a beautiful canopy of trees so we drew focus to the trellis with an arrangement of hydrangea, spray roses and free-spirit roses that were as big as our hands! They were simply breathtaking!
The reception dinner was also taking place outside so we created small garden inspired centerpieces to decorate the small restaurant tables. Little glass vases held an assortment fragrant blooms including peonies, cabbage roses, spray roses and freesia.
We absolutely loved the simplicity of this wedding and highlighting the locations natural beauty without overpowering it. Best wishes to Alexandra and John on a happy and healthy marriage.
