Some have described Rachel and Brad as the modern day Romeo and Juliet, others have called them the perfect couple.  While both of these are completely false, their friendship and love has endured over the years culminating in their special day.  I first met Rachel ten years ago while we were both studying at Mount Allison University.  Rachel was bright, beautiful and athletic, the type of young woman who you could not help but notice.  Me on the other hand, a young, immature C student who enjoyed late nights out more than early morning classes; needless to say we did not share a lot in common.  Little did she know at the time but I am a very patient person and slowly I wore down her defenses and we began dating.  It soon became apparent that we shared a special bond and that we were meant for each other.

The wedding planning started about five minutes after I had proposed to Rachel while on a trip to Banff.  Apparently after ten years she had some time to think about our (her) dream wedding.  We enlisted the help of a fabulous wedding planner, and cousin of mine Kara Greenwood (Belle Fleur Events), who was instrumental in pulling off our big day.  According to my wife and Kara, weddings don’t just come together as I had previously thought.

The day began with an ominous start as rain was in the forecast which forced our outdoor ceremony inside.  Looking back, having the relief of the beautiful air conditioned indoor space at the Estates of Sunnybrook was probably a blessing given our July wedding.  After some photos by our great team at 5ive15ifteen photo company we moved to the cocktail reception at the Arta gallery in the Distillery District, and to my utter delight more pictures.  The sun decided to make its first appearance of the day as guest arrived at Arta where we enjoyed great food and a few drinks.  The night really began when we moved a few doors down to the Fermenting Cellar.  With the help of our amazing wedding planner and our wonderful florists (Fuscia Designs) the Fermenting Cellar had been transformed into a breathtaking space that neither Rachel nor I could have imagined.

The setting was perfect, with mounds of white hydrangeas and orchids throughout the room and elegant chandeliers hanging from the ceiling.  We could not have been happier with how the space had turned out.  The contemporary feel was complemented by amazing floral designs and a few modern touches.  The team at the Fermenting Cellar did an amazing job with the lighting and all the final touches.  The night was perfect and we were so happy to share it with all our wonderful friends and family and I know that if Rachel could have done it all again the next weekend, she would have …I think I’ll wait another ten years before I’m ready again!!

A wedding day is a real life fairytale. Take clues from the classic fairytales like Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz and design your own version of a storybook beginning. As such, your gown should represent you and allow your inner radiance to emerge.  Seemingly opposing elements infuse in a theme wedding that is filled with the element of surprise and wonder. Whether you choose a dress that is white, cream, or ecru notice other details that make it different.
