If there has been a blessing to the wedding industry as a result of the global pandemic, it’s the increasing popularity of intimate at-home weddings. Even as we near the end of this challenging time, we believe that intimate weddings are here to stay and we are 100% here for it. But small doesn’t have to be simple and we are here to showcase that a wedding at home, while small in nature, can be big in design and details. The invitations gave a nod to the at-home wedding concept through the thoughtful design while showcasing the colour palette and luxurious feel of the wedding-to-be. We utilized the beautiful bones of this estate home to guide our design and concept. Elegant, timeless and sophisticated gowns, materials and details were combined with a more modern mix of flower design and styling. The home has a classic feel with transitional finishes, therefore our design mirrored the overall vibe of the house. A mix of classic colours with wood tones and greenery created the perfect backdrop for an intimate yet luxurious wedding to be remembered. The ceremony was staged on the grand staircase, with the sunset light flowing creating a magical backdrop for our couple. Surrounded by flowers and candles while embraced by the glow of the sun and each other, this was the perfect spot to say “I do”. The wow-factor didn’t stop at the ceremony and continued onto the reception in the great room. A statement greenery chandelier above the dinner table, not only defined the space but also created a magical and cozy feel to an otherwise very open space. The at-home feeling was further brought in through the use of a vintage rug underneath the dining space which was placed in front of the grand fireplace. Another thing you don’t usually get at a regular venue… a frame TV, which we used to display a custom wedding sign for our couple. Each guest was welcomed with a place card and gold-tipped menu and the best part yet, their own mini cake for dessert. Our couple however, did not miss out on the cake cutting tradition, and also had their own 2-tier cake to cut, enjoy and of course, save some for a future anniversary. Finally, guests were able to help themselves to custom cocktails served on a vintage bar throughout the day. And with that, cheers to at-home weddings done right!
