Julia and Daniel – what can I say? This wedding was everything I had hoped for. Wonderful couple. Trusting clients. Impeccable design. Thoughtful touches. Picturesque venue. All-star vendor team.
Julia had originally booked Floral Design with Kendon Design Co. after coming across an arch I had done for a styled shoot back in May of 2019. She knew she wanted it and she got it and it was perfect for her venue, Cambium Farms! The feel of that styled shoot was very French-inspired. Old-world, romantic, and very thoughtful design. She knew what she wanted and how the day should feel, but she wasn’t sure just how exactly to pull it all together. She had added on our Design service and we ran with it. From custom stationary, a fine art cake, to luxurious velvet linens – this barn wedding was so far from mason jars and burlap (I actually hated even typing those words).
We did however use baby’s breath, and we used a lot of it! Fifty bunches to be exact. My philosophy is if you’re going to use baby’s breath, go big or go home. On a large scale, it’s so cloud-like and dreamy! We created this circular arch strictly with baby’s breath and what a statement it made. It brought that whole “baby’s breath bar wedding” to a whole new elevated level.
We probably spent most of our conversations chatting about stationary in respect to the invitation suite. It was so important for Julia to create a wonderful first impression for her guests and to really encapsulate the feel of the day. Melissa from Statue Rue created the most amazing custom suite, including a hand-drawn illustration of the venue. the detail on the suite was just impecable and we made sure to carry on that aesthetic to the day of stationary.
Another important element was making sure that guests felt as though their experience was at the forefront – from cocktail hour elements to their individual place settings. Curating a tablescape and incorporating thoughtful design was significantly important to the couple, and I think we achieved just that. Cocktail hour included The Wheeled Brew and Toronto Photobooth Company, which guests enjoyed throughout the entire event. Guest settings were adorned with velvet linens from Simply Beautiful Decor and gold cutlery, exquisite glassware, and the perfect combination of dinnerware from Chairman Mills. Daniel et Daniel, which is Cambium Farm’s resident catering company, delivered the most beautiful and gourmet feast, which was highlight on each guest’s personalized menus.
Cambium Farms provided so many areas that we utilized. The ceremony was held on the lawn. Cocktail Hour was held in front of the carriage house and the reception, of course, in their vast barn. The venue has wonderful touches that really enhance the guest experience and to be able to stroll the ground and come across different moments – including a rainbow that was best view on their terrace off of the barn – is just perfection.
Julia and Daniel also ended up adding on Event Management with us and I couldn’t have been more honoured to be more of a part of their day. Julia and I had built a wonderful relationship during our time planning and it was truly a highlight of mine to be there all day and all night. It was a memorable soirée, to say the least, and the ‘feeling’ that we chased after when were planning out those details – I certainly look back nostalgically on their day and know that they and their guests will as well for a lifetime.
All the best to you both (and Jacob!). It was a privilege to get to know the both you and I’m still serious about that double dinner date – with prosseco, of course!
