We started planning this wedding back in January with the bride Karen and her Mom along with our very favorite and THE most capable and organized wedding planner we know, Christine Smart of Smart Events. After tossing around many, many ideas we narrowed it down to what became a most elegant combination of traditional white and green for the ceremony and dinner reception, and a riot of spicy, bright Indian inspired colours for the cocktail reception. We were thrilled because sometimes it is so hard to decide between the bright, vibrant colours and the more subdued, always perfect, whites and greens. We didn’t have to decide, we did both!The whole day took place at the stunning home of the bride’s parents in Cordova Bay. It was all hands on deck for this one as the timing was tight. We called in our most trusted and talented team of helpers and had such a great time; lots of diet coke, swollen ankles and sore feet.The ceremony was held in the huge white marquee, supplied by Apex Tents, with the guests seated in a circular fashion around the bridal couple. Guests then wandered to the ocean side of the house for the high energy cocktail reception with elaborate food stations all catered by the ever popular and talented Truffles Catering. Meantime the Verbena team, the Truffles team, Christine and her good friend Gary (whom she was able to talk into coming all the way from Toronto to help her with all the details) were busily transforming the marquee for the sit down dinner to follow. The gorgeous linens for the whole event were supplied by Around the Table from Toronto . We are posting our photos but stay tuned for the much anticipated “real” photos from the photographer Helene Cyr. We had so much fun with this wedding. The bride and her Mom were wonderful to work and plan with. Turns out the entire family was so gracious, friendly and welcoming that is was hard to say goodbye and wrap it up.
