One thing I loved about working with Tanya and Derrick was how awesome they are as people. So cool and down to earth, they are the type of people I knew I’d get along with outside of their wedding planning. Being in September, we used a warmer palette for their wedding, incorporating local dahlias and field-like grassy bits.Their wedding took place at District 28, one of my favourite venues in the city that boasts white walls to form the perfect blank canvas.
Tanya & Derrick’s ceremony set ups was one of my favourites. We used smilax vines to create an abstract piece that served as a backdrop as the couple said “I Do”. We brought that greenery through seating as well with pops of greenery attached randomly throughout. T+D picked ghost chairs for their guests so the emphasis would be on the greenery and the greenery only. Their dog baby, London, was part of the ceremony as well and wore a beautiful floral collar to match her mommy’s bouquet.
The guests later took their seats at rectangular wood harvest tables. We used a series of bud vases and lightly placed greenery to create a simple, but elegant feel in the room. I purposely created the bud vases to be looser and airier so guests could really take in the splendour of each unique bloom. Quality beats quantity, friends. All of these images were captured beautifully by the ever-so-talented Jennifer from Jennifer See Studios.
