Rowell Photography was  really excited to show off these photos, because it is one of the only weddings they photographed this year that did a first look. That is where the bride and groom see one another and have their photos taken before the ceremony. They had Derrick wait outside on the sidewalk in front of their home for Shelby to come out in her dress and meet him. They really love it when couples choose to meet before the wedding, it really sets a nice relaxed feeling for the entire event and it also gives the couple time to mingle and enjoy their celebration with their guests at the cocktail reception.

I know that we always bring you inspiration through the beautiful images of weddings but here is an amazing dedication to 40 years of love.  How significant is that! No matter what point in time you celebrate your love, a well organized event allows the joy of that moment to live on forever. This 40th anniversary party was planned to perfection. Each detail worked in harmony. Interesting patterns flowed from the invites to the cake design. Rhinestones, feathers, and flowers were sprinkled on key elements, like the favor boxes, menu cards, and table arrangements to bring out the essence of style. Once again love inspired.

Tara & Bobby , March 12th, 2011

Tara & Bobby met accidently at a white party in the summer of 2007, but by the end of the night they realized they shared a common interest – shoes! That first interaction led to many more where they realized they had much more in common than just a love of shoes.

On March 12th they were married at St. Margaret Mary Parish in Vaughan. The bride wore a sleek silk satin gown designed by Priscilla of Boston complete with the most important accessory – blue Manolo’s! The groom dazzled in a tuxedo designed by Tom Ford, while the maid & matron of honour and best woman stunned in steel gray dresses with an open back and crystal broach finish.  The tone of the wedding was set with the elegant invitations finished with crystal embellishments from L&S Invitations & Gifts.  The gray and crystal theme was the inspiration behind the bride’s dazzling bouquet made entirely of crystal broaches – some borrowed and some new.  The bouquet was constructed and designed by the talented Lisa Mannella of Primavera Flowers & More.
Guests were received at the Bellvue Manor where the lobby was transformed into a formal cocktail reception complete with an oyster & vodka bar, vintage wine & cheese bar, and worldly food stations. It was adorned with white drapery courtesy of Special Event Draping.  The theme continued through to the place cards detailed with crystal borders set atop champagne flutes. The doors to the main dining room were opened at 7pm where guests were breath-taken with the spectacular finishes.  From the long rectangular tables, topped with rich silver damask table clothes, and the silver chiavari chairs, to the mirrored box centerpieces that stretched end-to-end filled with velvety white hydrangeas; the elegance of the room shone. Primavera Flowers completed all of the floral décor and arrangements for the event where over 1000 hydrangeas were used to create the captivating look. All the special moments were captured by Angelina of Michael Francis Photography who the bride and groom chose for her unique ability to encapsulate the emotion of the day through the lens of her camera.

After a delicious meal created & prepared by the Bellvue Manor complete with wine pairings for each course, guests were invited to enter the Scott & Cigar Lounge where specialty scotches and cigars were served.  Late night pass-arounds ensured no guest left hungry, with mini ice cream cones, cheesecake lollipops, macaroni & cheese and chocolate dipped strawberries circulating.  As a special treat, guests were handed a parcel of decadent chocolate chip cookies baked by Andee’s Sweet Treat as the valet brought their cars up to the entrance as a ‘sweet ending’ to a magnificent evening.

Known for her feminine silhouettes and superb fit, Bocci’s avant-garde bridal designs are modern, yet classic in detail. Her hand-sewn craftsmanship and innovative, sophisticated designs are dazzlingly luxurious, appealing to even the most discerning brides-to-be.

Inspired by real brides-to-be, Bocci’s 2012 collection features breathtaking, cutting-edge gowns suitable for formal affairs; sleek, classic designs perfect for chic, city weddings; and sweet and sexy dresses perfect for destination and outdoor ceremonies – or for the ever popular gown change for the reception.

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.

Great pride is taken in the preparation and execution of every detail surrounding this one of a kind bridal event; each participant’s contribution and commitment to the wedding tradition was evident in the quality of work displayed. As breast cancer awareness month comes to a close, I reflect on how lucky I am to have met and worked with so many strong women who, with clarity and vision, step forward everyday and make a difference.
