What do you do when one bride wants full glam and the other is into minimal natural elements? Simple you blend the styles, the results? A wedding that proves blended design styles can be chic. Holly, the glam bride, has a sense for theatrical elements, rocking one of her three looks in a floor-length sequin star fur wrap over a chic green suit. Fabulous is written all over her, and we are feeling very inspired by her out of the box choices. Not to mention the pair are so in love we are catching all the feels scrolling through this gallery, see it for yourself!
Just About Married shares more about the wedding inspiration,
“Outside the streets of downtown were being buried in snow, but we were cozily tucked into The Fifth Social Club in a historic Toronto neighborhood with Holly and Toni – and what better way than to work with a real couple with two distinctly different, but uniquely gorgeous, wedding styles?
Holly’s energy and love for bold looks and high drama outfits were the perfect pair for her real-life love, Toni, who describes herself and her style as more low-key and simple. Together we created a wedding shoot that proves that no matter what your style, your wedding can reflect it. The first look was a long lace robe created by local Toronto designer By Catalfo, the perfect accessory for getting ready for your big day. The undeniably romantic delicate lace was beautifully captured by Shauna Heron Photography in a sexy juxtaposition against the stark historic window panes of The Fifth’s downtown corner property. While the snowflakes fell outside, Holly quickly changed into her showpiece “ceremony” look – a stunning sharp-lined emerald suit from local bespoke tailor Eric Sana that was set off with a showstopping pink bejeweled cape. Toni couldn’t believe her eyes when she saw Holly spin in the floor-length feather-trimmed beauty: “You look incredible” she said with a look of real awe (shared by everyone in the room). Holly’s uninhibited sense of fun was contagious as we took some high-powered shots in The Fifth’s lovely old freight elevator, the perfect conversation-starter for guests being transported up to the rooftop for scenic city views.
Finally, Toni joined the fun for our reception shots, her simple soft grey suit the perfect complement for Holly’s final look, a fun off-the-shoulder lace jumpsuit, also by By Catalfo. With two brides with two distinctly different styles, this shoot still has such a lovely sense of balance. The reception details were the perfect blend of both brides: Rikki Marcone Floral Design created elaborately beautiful floral pieces to line the center of the head table while anchoring the different elements with an all-white color palette. We added splashes of ink-black to up the drama of the otherwise simple and eclectic table settings from The Perfect Table. We also created geometric accents as a nod to Toni’s love for urban and modern art. Alex from Baking Up Treble played up the geometric vibes in her artistic hexagon monogrammed cookies, the perfect favor for wedding guests and a lovely accent for the three-tiered concrete and marble inspired wedding cake she created.
For any bride who thinks they have to play it safe to stay traditional or who is stressing over blending two very different styles, Holly and Toni are the ultimate inspiration – two brides who could not be more different, and a wedding shoot the combined the biggest pieces of both of them to create the ultimate celebration of their love story. That’s what weddings should be about, and that’s what Just (About) Married strives to cultivate.”
