There’s prettiness everywhere you look in this wedding at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. The venue alone is just gorgeous with the ceremony held under hanging Spanish moss. We’re loving all of the flower arrangements in blush, peach, and orange tones.
Katherine and Andrew met at school and wed at the Royal Conservatory of Music where Katherine had played recitals as a child. Their wedding was decorated with cheery pops of yellow from flowers to lemons, cute vintage elements, and escort cards made to look like piano keys. The bride and groom, with the help of family and friends, added so many handmade details to their wedding, and the result is simply perfect!

From their Photographer: Katherine and Andrew are a ton of fun. They met in University while studying law out East. They got married in beautiful downtown Toronto. Their ceremony was held at Trinity College Chapel at the University of Toronto, followed by cocktails and reception at The Royal Conservatory of Music. A most rad venue. The bride played many piano recitals there as a child. And the couple are both big fans of music.
The decor was modern, with hints of vintage and whimsical. Adore all those pops of yellow. Lemons played a big role in the decor – Kat & Andrew enlisted the help of their wedding party to scour Toronto for as many lemons as they could muster. They joked during the speeches that there are literally no lemons left in the city that weekend. Guests sat at long banquet tables, encouraging conversation and mingling while they feasted on dinner. Lisa from Sweet Woodruff did a great job marrying all the decor elements with an eclectic mix of floral arrangements made of ranunculus, anemones and dahlias, dispersed among mercury candles, bell jars and accents of lemons. Wine crates and even more lemons decorated the reception tables, while guests browsed a display of framed old family photos nearby. Guests were asked to sign the back of postcards – that were designed by the couple. Palettera created beautiful custom name cards and the lovely invitations. Guests found their seats by the super creative piano-key inspired escort card display (also by Palettera) hung on an old window frame. We loved this – such a nice touch since it the reception took place at the Royal Conservatory of Music. Rebecca Chan and her team helped bring all the vision and details that the couple had been working on to life. The reception set up was picture perfect.
The amount of DIY was astounding! With the help of friends and family – these guys got super crafty and it looked fab. The groom’s parents helped create the marquee lights. Which looked gorgeous all lit up during the reception. The rustic table numbers were constructed by the groom’s family. The Mr. & Mrs signs, the chalk board signage, the table decor – all done with love and smiles from the couple and their friends and family.
This Michigan wedding is just bursting with color and fun details, which were handmade by the crafty bride. We love the beautiful outdoor setting, all of the handmade signage, and the super fun paper and “Love” marquee backdrop for the bridal table.

From the Photographer: It was a beautiful Saturday in the woods when Anna married Travis, the man of her dreams. We were guided in by multiple signs pointing the way. Everything was decorated to perfection because Anna, ever the crafty bride, hand crafted all these amazing details. Anna was an absolutely stunning bride and was just beaming at the sight of her dashing groom, Travis. These two are madly in love and every stolen glance confirmed how much they adore each other. It was pretty clear to see that they fit together perfectly. It was a very special day and we were so privileged to be there.
Alanna and Josh really knocked their wedding out of the park, adding so much of their personalities into their big day. So much color and so many fun details in this wedding! We’re loving all the wildflower arrangements and their custom invite!
From their Photographer: Let me prepare you for all of the gorgeousness [above]! Alanna and Josh’s wedding had sooo many amazing details and heartfelt moments. It was seriously a photographer’s dream. I love love LOVE their custom invitations that depict them and their venue. Super cute! I also loved their vintage details on every single table. Alanna’s dress was very chic and unique. Their ceremony was under a huge oak tree, and their rustic style barn reception, complete with string lights, was very romantic. Josh’s face when he first saw Alanna walking up the isle was priceless. I love day time weddings and the gorgeous natural light it provides. They hired a folk singer, which really fit the mood! Everything went perfectly, and I was so glad to have the honor of capturing their wedding day.
How they met: Alanna and Joshua met at Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Slidell when they were in the youth program. They became friends, and after a couple of weeks, began dating.
How he proposed: Josh proposed on the Riverwalk at sunset in New Orleans. They were sitting there watching the boats, and then Alanna heard their song (Unforgettable by Nat King Cole.) As Alanna turned around, she saw her sister with their dog Stella and Stella had the ring tied to her collar on a bow. Josh knelt down and tried to get his speech out, but he had to cut it short since he was so nervous and choked up.
