This real wedding beautifully showcases a little bit of glamour with a little bit of real life, and we’re all about it. The gold sequin wedding dress that this bride wore is to die for.
Jessica from Periwinkle Flowers gives the best explanation of this awesome feature:
“When Meg first contacted me she emailed “I need to start by telling you I’m not your normal bride. I’m wearing a gold sequin dress- will that be a problem for you?” I knew then and there that we were a perfect off kilter match and emailed back to the effect of “gold sequined dress? I’m in!”
Running on a tight time frame, Meg and Sam planned their wedding in only three months. They knew they wanted a venue with strong architecture and picked the Gardiner Museum’s event space, an airy modern building in the heart of Toronto with stunning views of the downtown skyline.
Meg’s wore that gorgeous gold sequin dress; in fact she walked from the hotel to the subway and took a train to her ceremony in it, along with her groom in full Scottish kilt. This perfectly sums up Meg and her vivacious but down to earth personality.
We matched her unique take on “bridal” with a bouquet equally quirky but glamorous, a sculptural bouquet of yellow crasepdia, alstromeria, ranunculus, kangaroo paw with white anemones and soft blue eryngeum.
The ceremony and reception were held in the same space, so we created elements that would easily move to work for both. 6 large round white balloons from Sugargirllee Co. marked the ceremony area, with garlands of trailing greenery suspended from them. An eclectic mix of vases and budvases filled with yellow flowers lined the back window, set on white stools. Guests sat on a mix of tall leather bar stools, clear ghost chairs and low couches.
After the ceremony guests retired downstairs for cocktails while the room was flipped for the reception, with tall tables set for relaxed seating and couches ready for resting. Photographer Danielja Weddings captured Meg’s style perfectly with a mix of deep, moody, emotional images.”
Some words from Meg about her day:
Traditional isn’t exactly our style. We wanted something that was fun, not overly formal, and something that represented the love and warmth our family and friends always surround us in. Colour wise that translated into gold, yellow and blue. My favorite memory of the day was meeting my husband and step-son at the hotel before the wedding, and taking the subway up to the venue together (and yes, everyone was in their wedding finery!). It was wonderful family time for us before ceremony and reception.”
