Timeless Elegance with a Romantic Flare.
Classy. Elegant. Passionate. Stylish. Sophisticated. There are so many words that could be used to describe the October wedding ceremony of Justyna and Filipe, at St. Mary’s Parish in London, Ontario.
When Justyna first approached me about helping to take the wedding she had always dreamed about and make it a reality, I was instantly captivated by her glowing personality and kind-hearted nature. She is a truly beautiful person, inside and out, and I knew that I had to find a way to harness those qualities and use them as the overarching design theme for her wedding day.
Justyna is what I would refer to as a classic romantic, and I believe this shone through in every design element. From the carefully curated flowers and centerpieces (donated by her best friend and MOH, Jolene of Forest of Flowers) to her young daughter walking proudly down the aisle as her very special junior Bridesmaid, the Bride had a precise vision of how she wanted to celebrate the commencement of her matrimonial union to Filipe and I am proud to have been able to help breathe life into that vision.
The reception took place at the Imperio Banquet Hall, in London’s charming East side. Guests were greeted and the grand entryway by an artistically-draped canopy and an awe-inspiring chandelier, all complimented by soft, warm up-lighting.
Lavish Events by Design crafted a design of interchanging centerpieces, some had delicate, gold Harlow stands adorned with fresh flowers (created by Jolene Rijnen of Forest of Flower’s Oxford and Wonderland location) and candle holders situated at the base of each stand, the remainder were constructed using our own gorgeous raised hurricane vases, accented by floating candles and small floral arrangements.
It was an extraordinary day, one that left many in attendance weeping tears of joy for the new couple and one that I am honoured to have played even a small part of.
Justyna and Filipe thank you for trusting Lavish Events by Design with the creation of your special day.
