Kara and Brad had the most perfect weather for their September wedding at 99 Sudbury. Designing this wedding was super fun for me. Kara and I are long-time friends from high school, so it felt like I understood her vision even before we had our first consultation. Kara immediately fell in love with the quicksand rose, which created the basis for her wedding design. The bouquets were soft and feminine, which helped them pair so well with Kara’s gorgeous Rime Arodaky gown and the bold patterns her bridesmaids wore. Brad wore a simple white spray rose boutonniere. Recognize his look? Brad’s ensemble was inspired by the hit Netflix show Peaky Blinders. Round of applause for the Thomas Shelby vibes.
We decked out Kara & Brad’s ceremony space with our asymmetrical arch and “valley” pieces, as I call them. Both were repurposed over to their head table. The guest tables were all rectangular and featured greenery garlands with pops of astilbe, spray roses, cinerea eucalyptus and pieris japonica. We finished the tables with blush pillar candles, blush taper candles in white holders and our white-brushed votives. These elements paired beautifully with the grey table linens. The finishing touch was the greenery wrapped up the support beams. One of my favourite elements of this wedding was the gorgeous cake crafted by Sweet Sister Chic Sister.
While 99 Sudbury is no longer around, it’s nice to have these memories from what used to be one of my favourite venues in Toronto. This was also our first wedding to be featured in a magazine!
