Toronto Lovefest: Vintage Botanical
Take a look at this stunning inspiration shoot by some of Toronto’s finest wedding suppliers!
The Concept: Share a couples personal history and their deep adoration for Toronto through the details of their wedding celebration.
The Theme: Inspiration images, favourite colours and a strong desire to highlight our beloved city, culminated in a vintage botanical theme, in shades of burnt coral, earthy greens, creams and a touch of black. A simple aesthetic which honours the bride’s late grandmother, an avid gardener and beekeeper. Storied pieces were paired with modern geometric shapes to bring the past and the present together in a timeless conversation.
The Story: Libby & Art met a few years ago at the merch booth at Massey Hall after a Bahamas show. Both music lovers and avid concert goers, it was love at first record purchase. It was clear in sharing their story that music would play a role. An oversized print with the word “musica” was made to hang behind the bride as she walked down the aisle (the image originally taken on the couples trip to Italy). The hidden and secret greenscapes of the city were echoed in the standards handmade by our wedding planner and florist. Geometric shapes filled with cascading greenery, contrast and compliment simultaneously. Libby & Art love a good cocktail and can be seen cuddled up at the bar at many of toronto’s finest watering holes. So it was only natural they invite their favourite bartender to create and serve a signature cocktail at their wedding… yet another way to bring their story into their celebration. We brought a record player to the schoolhouse for the couples first dance. Arthur played the record they’d purchased when they first met, Bahamas, “lost in the light”.
Sourcing and collaborating with Toronto’s top artists, designers, creators and makers of weddings was essential in our effort to showcase the local talent available for modern Toronto couples. Here is a list of our Wedding Creatives:
