We always love when the fab photography team at A Brit and A Blonde sends us a gorgeous wedding! We saw a preview of this wedding when wedding planner extraordinaire Rebecca Chan Weddings & Events submitted it as her favourite wedding of 2014 and we couldn’t wait to see the day from start to finish!
Photographer Jessica tells us “Katherine and Andrew are a ton of fun. They met in University while studying law out East. They got married in beautiful downtown Toronto. Their ceremony was held at Trinity College Chapel at the University of Toronto, followed by cocktails and reception at The Royal Conservatory – a most rad venue. The bride played many piano recitals there as a child and the couple are both big fans of music.”
“The decor was modern, with hints of vintage and whimsy. Adore all those pops of yellow. Lemons played a big role in the decor – Kat & Andrew enlisted the help of their wedding party to scour Toronto for as many lemons as they could muster. They joked during the speeches that there are literally no lemons left in the city that weekend. Guests sat at long banquet tables, encouraging conversation and mingling while they feasted on dinner. Lisa from Sweet Woodruff did a great job marrying all the decor elements with an eclectic mix of floral arrangements made of ranunculus, anemones and dahlias, dispersed among mercury candles, bell jars and accents of lemons.
Wine crates and even more lemons decorated the reception tables, while guests browsed a display of framed old family photos nearby. Guests were asked to sign the back of postcards that were designed by the couple. Palettera Custom Correspondences created beautiful custom name cards and the lovely invitations. Guests found their seats by the super creative piano-key inspired escort card display hung on an old window frame (also by Palettera). We loved this – such a nice touch since the reception took place at the The Royal Conservatory. Rebecca Chan and her team helped bring all the vision and details that the couple had been working on to life. The reception set up was picture perfect.”
