Natalija + Marc were married in a very intimate and traditional Serbian wedding ceremony and then invited their guests to the stunning (and recently renovated) Burlington Golf and Country Club for cocktails and an evening dinner reception.
We designed this wedding using roses, peonies, (purple, pink and white) hydrangea, orchids, freesia, lisianthus and the-most-wonderful smelling lily of the valley! We also raided our organic cutting garden for bits of foliage such as mock orange, bridal veil spirea and the like!
Natalija's gorgeous bride's bouquet …
The matching bridesmaid's bouquets ... a big bridal party with 8 girls! The bouquets looked amazing against the shimmery fabric of their dresses ... depending on the light, you'd see tones of lavender, purple, pink, magenta or even electric blue!
We hadn't been to the Burlington Golf and Country Club since their $14 million renovation ... but, wow, what a stunning transformation! This is one gorgeous building ... and they did it all right!
The accent colour, naturally provided by the venue decor, but also brought out in the Chiavari chairs, stationery and guest favors was ... gold! It was a soft, champagne gold and it set off the room amazingly well! We designed these centerpieces to be raised up above the sacred 'line-of-sight' (we call it the 'no-fly-zone'!) and this helped lend a certain physicality to the room. With low centerpieces, the room would've felt empty ... but the height of these centerpieces scaled down the vastness of the high ceiling just the right amount!
So much of the aesthetic of well executed wedding decor is in the details ... and Natalija + Marc's wedding was loaded with perfectly placed details! We particularly loved the vintage style menu stationery and boxed Godiva thank-yous!
