When bride Janine approached us for a design for her wedding at Archeo in Toronto’s Distillery District she emphasized the desire to meld her and her future husband, Gabriel’s different cultural background into their relaxed yet elegant wedding. Janine, who’s Canadian, met Gabriel, who is French and Spanish, on an international exchange in the south of France. For the next seven years the couple kept their love alive, long distance, then living together in Europe before moving back to Canada. Returning to Europe in the summer of 2015 to visit family and to revisit the place where it all began Gabriel proposed in the in the middle of a lavender field in the south of France. As such, lavender became a key part of the wedding day floral design, incorporated into every decor element and bringing back the fondest of memories for the couple. Combined with soft pastel shades of blush and peach accented with muted eucalyptus greenery the floral scheme was relaxed, yet elegant, perfectly complimenting the setting of Archeo and captured by Cait Patrick Photography.
