Rosanne and Steve came to us last Fall in need of wedding planning services. They told us straight off the bat that they were a quirky, fun-loving couple, and while there were many traditional wedding elements that they wanted to incorporate, they also wanted to add a helping portion of their own personalities to their wedding.
And that was certainly the case!
Starting with the bride’s dress – we have never seen one like this. A long, sheer ivory gown was paired with a short ivory strapless satin dress underneath. That made it pretty easy to get ready for dancing the night away!
They chose Columbus Centre as their venue for both the wedding ceremony and reception. The Carrier Art Gallery itself is very unique with its rotunda shape, with a round open ceiling extending upwards many floors. Not much additional decor is required in this room – large windows, lots of natural light and artwork on the wall.
But that didn’t stop the bride from adding her own creative touch! A backdrop of gold and red balloons was created – another first for us! We have never done a wedding with a balloon backdrop so weren’t sure if it would come together as we had hoped, but once we saw the finished product, it looked fantastic!
Then there was the gaming theme – from the Pac Man socks the groom was wearing to the table numbers swapped for game names, everything from Mahjong to Monopoly to Poker to Zelda!
Forgoing the usual wedding cake, Rosanne and Steve chose to go with a cupcake tower in stunning colours and multiple flavours – a huge hit with all the guests!
Tables were adorned with red rose centerpieces lovingly created by the Groom’s mother. Each guest received a duo of favours: a small pot of honey and a red box containing traditional Chinese sweets to take home.
We had so much fun with you, Rosanne & Steve! Congratulations!
