Julia and William’s beautiful big day was unique in all sorts of ways. Because the wedding happened on a leap day in February the couple went with the theme Leap into Love, and thanks to their amazing planner, Art of Celebrations, the style and details of their wedding at the stunning Chateau Le Parc practically leaps off the page too. It was also a very special wedding – for the couple, their guests, and all the vendors – although no one knew it at the time, this was one of the final weddings before the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown took place. Thankfully the talented lens of Purple Tree Wedding Photography was on hand to snap each wonderful moment.
The couple shared a romantic first look before a winter wonderland of a photo session that put their special connection fully on display.
The couple’s reception is sleek and sophisticated, and filled with personal touches and cultural elements. Both Julia and Will are of Ukrainian background which was evident by the Kozak table that was used during cocktail hour, which is a table with Korovai bread. Additionally, guests enjoyed a traditional Ukrainian dance presentation performed by a dance group which Julia herself once was a part of. Friends and family were also treated to wine and party favours from Will’s family winery and honey farm, Rosewood Estates Winery. The flowers and décor were also reminiscent of Ukrainian embroidery and flower wreaths with subtle honeycomb elements throughout, and matched beautifully with the classic tables and chair from Detailz Couture Event Rentals and elegant tableware from Bliss Rentals & Events Inc. The rich colours and gorgeous accents, including the exquisite seating chart frame from Decor and Fiesta, perfectly highlighted the winter season too. Later, guests enjoyed the delicious cake from Patricia's Cake Creations.
