Andrea & Trevor's Big Day!

On September 30, 2011, Andrea & Trevor tied the knot - and this fun-loving, easy-going couple had a wonderful day!

The ceremony took place at St. Christopher's Church in Burlington.
The girls were in pretty red dresses, the guys were handsome in their tuxes - and Andrea sported the most fabulous shoes under her stunning dress... the shoes were covered completely with Swarovski crystals!!

Following the ceremony, family photos were taken outside the church and then the bridal party took a limo bus to Dundurn Castle for more photos in a very picturesque setting.

The Bridal party arrived in time to hold a receiving line during the cocktail hour at the Burlington Convention Centre. The reception decor was red and white and looked stunning! The receiving table was elegantly laid out and the head table was set up on two levels.
A white wedding cake with small red flowers was set out for the ceremonial cutting and then guests enjoyed delicious cupcakes.
Besides having the menu on the table, the couple also included a card entitled "The Story of US"... a very cute and unique idea!

Once the dance got underway, a photobooth was set up in the foyer and guests really enjoyed this and got quite "into it"!! These photos were put into a scrapbook and guests signed it - making a special memory guest book! Towards the end of the evening, a huge spread of sweets and fruits was set out for guests to enjoy. Congratulations Andrea & Trevor!!

Steam Whistle Brewery Unique Wedding!

Laura & Mike's wedding on Sept 24th, 2011 was held at one of the most unique venues I've been to for a wedding... the Steam Whistle Brewery in downtown Toronto. The Brewery is located in the historic train round house, right at the base of the CN Tower.

The bridal party got ready in a luxurious suite at the Royal York and did their photos prior to the wedding - both at the hotel and also on the grounds of Steam Whistle.
The evening was clear and comfortable for the 7 pm ceremony which was held outside on the patio - with train cars in view, the CN tower just off the to the side and the lights of the city starting to come on.

A cocktail party reception was held in the large "warehouse" space (The Hall) of the Steam Whistle. The room was set up with numerous cruiser tables, "ghost" bar stools (clear plastic) and groupings of white leather sofas, benches & ottomans. Uplighting on the wooden beam pillars and lots of candles everywhere helped create a warm ambiance. The party got into full swing immediately following the ceremony, with the bar open, appetizers and food stations set out and the DJ cranking up the tunes and got the light show going. An old-fashioned photo booth was kept busy during the night with guests dressing up and getting their photos taken.

It was definitely not a traditional wedding, but the contemporary "cocktail party" theme of this wedding suited the venue, the couple and the guests perfectly - a very unique day that I'm sure everyone will remember for a long time!

Congratulations Laura & Mike!

Oh boy... its been AGES since I last posted a blog - where has the time gone?! And I realized, much to my chagrin, that I still have a couple of weddings from the FALL of 2011 to post about yet. My sincere apologies to those couples for not posting their weddings sooner! So... before I start adding new information for brides, giving tips and ideas and before trying to become more consistent with my blogging - I'll update my past wedding blogs first! Then, we can start fresh and new! So... check back right away... another wedding post is coming!
