These elegant wedding invitations (perfect for a garden party) were designed by local vendor Stephita Invitations.
Two unique Rent the Couture bridal looks
For the bride, two breathtaking gowns were selected from Rent the Couture – paired with a windswept updo and rosy makeup by Michele Rose Beauty. The first dress selection was a sexy, corseted style with a layered tulle skirt; the second was a whimsical floral gown covered in butterfly motifs, with dreamy detachable puff sleeves.
The groom matched the bride’s fabulous fashion in a sleek muted blue suit from Andrews Formals. These Barcelona lovebirds brought their own European style into their gorgeous attire!
A multifaceted Canadian estate venue
Harding Waterfront Estate is one of the prettiest in the Greater Toronto area. Situated on the lakeshore of Lake Ontario, the estate is an intimate and romantic hideaway and has absolutely everything you need to feel like you are in a fairytale. The venue features a tent, a main house with a sweeping staircase, a balcony overlooking the front grounds, and another in the back – perfect for hosting cocktail hour with views of the lake.

Whimsical floral ceremony backdrop
Tracey M Events was inspired to create an “over the top” floral ceremony backdrop, creating a scene that was both intimate and grand. This whimsical design came together with a rust, blush, and ivory fresh floral arch by First Comes Love Weddings, hugged by unique silk standing flowers from Custom Prop. We loved the runway style seating that the design team chose, allowing guests to have full view of the ceremony and processional/recessional without straining their necks!
Ivory Garden Rose linen inspired reception
The lovely garden party reception was inspired by the romantic “Ivory Garden Rose” linens from Linen Closet. The aptly named table covering includes tones of ivory, green, blush pink and toffee. The table design beautifully reflected the fresh and bright floral centerpieces by First Comes Love Weddings.
Edible drink toppers for cocktail hour
A luxe display of martinis for cocktail hour was made even more fabulous by edible drink toppers! As it was the day after Tracey M Events‘ 25th wedding anniversary, she chose to add their initials and real wedding date to the design. She even used their anniversary bottle of Moet for the cake table champagne!
This stunning cake by Just One More Desserts beautifully complemented the silk floral design from the wedding ceremony!
Convertible getaway car
The designer’s favorite part of the shoot was sharing her gorgeous Audi A5 convertible for the couple’s getaway car. The bride’s bouquet was a vibrant pop of color over the polished, white sports car – parked in front of the main house to show off the beauty of the country estate!
