THE BEAUTIFULLEST BURROUGHES BUILDING WEDDING EVER

Written by Jessica - Posted February 15th - Photographs by A Brit & A Blonde

Okay so beautifullest may not be a word. But sometimes a lil’ liberty with the English language is needed – other non-words that spring to mind gorgetascity, fantabulousness and of course awesomtastic.

Graham & Huy are downtown Toronto dwellers and chose their wedding venue accordingly. What better spot than the Queen West Burroughes Building location. We have had the opportunity to shoot at this coveted downtown Toronto spot multiple times. And each and every time it looks and feels different and the couple can really put their stamp on things.

Maybe it was the ridiculously stunning Jenny Packham wedding dress that Huy wore or the Tom Ford bow tie on Graham in his exquisite suit but these two were picture perfect. Instead of a traditional floral bouquet and boutonniere – Huy made – yup she did it herself – that beyond beautiful jewelled bouquet with lovely vintage brooches and hairpins. Not a blossom in sight. It was one of the loveliest things  – plus she gets to keep it forever, ever. Not one to be outdone – Graham sported a Bluejay feather lapel pin from Toronto company Hook & Furl. The dapperist.

The ceremony was officiated by the one and only Mary Beaty – who always does a splendid job of making the ceremony light hearted and fun. Wedding design and planning was done by Iris Li of Blue Lavender Events – she is a total pro dotting her i’s and crossing her t’s and making everything look perfectly perfect.

This wedding was classic and whimsical and well like I said the beautifullest.

Jessica: It was purchased at White in Toronto.

SFai: Can anyone tell me where to find that gorgeous gown in Toronto?

CANNOT LOVE THIS COSTA VERDE WEDDING MORE

Written by Jessica - Posted January 20th - Photographs by A Brit & A Blonde

The first time Shelby met Jeremy – he interviewed her. Not in a bad blind date kind of way though. She was actually interviewing for a position at his company – TrendHunter. And although she did not answer “Marrying you in sunny gorgeous Costa Rica” – when asked the question “Where do you see yourself in 5 years?” – she got the job and soon stole his heart nonetheless.

These Toronto based lovebirds chose one of the loveliest spots in Costa Rica to be their backdrop for their wedding ceremony – Costa Verde in Manuel Antonio. That view – is beyond beyond. Isabel of Costa Verde did a wonderful job of creating such an incredibly unique aisle for the ceremony- a floral adorned bridge across the pool . I mean how gorgetastic does that look! So to all the couples out there who are not necessarily keen on a beachy ceremony – take note – other fantabulous options abound!

While guests enjoyed popsicles and champagne (again how awesome!) during cocktails. We whisked these two away for some photos amidst the jungle-y rainforest. As the sun set on this majorly magical day – there were heartfelt & hilarious speeches and a rather impressive version of the Fresh Price of Bel Air theme song: Jeremy and Shelby-ized of course. Dancing ensued (and although no attempt was made at dancing a la Carleton to keep with the Fresh Prince vibe) a grande time was had by all.

Shelby Walsh: You guys are the best!

Jeremy Gutsche: Thanks for all the pictures, these are awesome! :)
