Surprise Horse Drawn Carriage!

Natalie & Peter's wedding day was full of sunshine, and yes, come cool breezes. Their ceremony was held at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Mississauga, officiated by the minister who had a great sense of humour. Part of their ceremony included the "sand ceremony" to symbolize thier new life together.

Natalie looked like a princess in her gorgeous dress that had a sparkly, fitted top and layers of tulle princess skirt... stunning!! Peter was handsome in his tuxedo and was able to relax and enjoy the day once he set eyes on his bride! The girls wore teal dresses and the guys had matching teal vests.

At the end of the ceremony, the church bells rang and the couple left the church in their white carriage - drawn through town to the photo site by 2 magnificent white horses (this was a surprise to the bridal party & guests!) The rest of the bridal party and family members were driven to the photo site in a luxury coach limo bus... talk about classy all the way!

The cocktail hour and reception were held at the Harbour Banquet Hall in Oakville... a gorgeous second floor room of windows, overlooking the lake. The decor was eye-catching all done in silver and teal, with some brown and lots of "Bling" accessories. It was quite the amazing banquet hall. A teal-lit ice luge martini bar was set up in one corner of the room, serving up the signature drink "Sabatinis".. after the couple's last name (Sabata)

The party was fabulous - lots of dancing and enjoyment was shared by all, and the bride & groom were the last to leave! Congratulations Natalie & Peter... a fabulous couple!!

Classy & Traditional = Beautiful Wedding!

Saturday, September 10th dawned clear, bright and gorgeous... the perfect day for Tori & Rob's wedding.

Rob and his handsome groomsmen arrived at St. Jude's church in Oakville in 3 antique "London Cabs" - very stylish and elegant.

The bride and her girls arrived in an antique Rolls Royce - with red carpet treatment and all. Tori was gorgeous in her gown and cathedral length veil. A traditional Anglican wedding service was witnessed by many friends and family, with music provided by both the organist and also a string quartet from the Oakville Symphony. Photos were taken at the church's beautiful gardens immediately following the service.

Guests enjoyed a fabulous cocktail hour on the lawn of the grand Oakville Golf & Country Club, followed by the reception in their upstairs dining room. The couple were treated to a traditional Ukranian bread ceremony blessing involving Tori's god parents and the bride's & groom's parents.

It was a wonderful day and I wish this special couple all the best in their new life together!
