CHEERS! A STEAM WHISTLE BREWERY WEDDING

Written by Jessica - Posted December 3rd - Photographs by A Brit & A Blonde

Jessica works in PR and Ben is a lawyer – they are both very smart and equal parts awesome. They also happen to know how to throw a great wedding. They are meticulously stylish and stylishly meticulous. I feel like they would have had a list when planning their big day. Something like the following:

First, select a most rad venue that happens to be in the heart of downtown Toronto. They chose Steam Whistle Brewery which literally is between the CN tower and the Rogers Centre – the epicentre of the epicentre of Toronto.

Second, choose a season where your guests won’t be too hot or too cold. They opted for a most loverly Fall wedding in October where the leaves were changing all sorts of amazing colours.

Third, bring on a truly talented (and unbelievably lovely) wedding planner who can bring your vision to life and ensure all the awesome goes according to plan. Enter stage left – the very magnificent Ashley Pigott of Ashley Pigott Events.

Fourth, do not forget to make the wedding personal. Jess & Ben opted to do a first look and it was really such a sweet and personal moment for the two of them seeing each other all dressed to the nines bridal-ified and groom-ified for the first time. The Jewish wedding ceremony was truly magnificent – there were a few chairs for some folks to sit if they wanted, but otherwise all their friends and family surrounded them on all sides making it a very intimate and magical moment under the chuppah. Their ketubah was so unique – it was actually printed on a piece of wood and looked like a work of art – something Jessica & Ben will certainly hang up in their condo. There was one guest who unfortunately could not make it; who Jess & Ben love to bits and pieces – their beloved dog Morty. In Morty’s honour, Jess had spray painted gold a bunch of different dog figurines which were used as whimsical decor items on the various tables which was a rad touch and very them.

Fifth, invite your nearest and dearest from near and far, those that can shake their groove thang and those that are willing to almost split their fancy pants to land a dance move – they will make your wedding spectacular and special.

Last but not least – have an incredible time, laugh a lot and often. Don’t forget to enjoy the amazingness of the day. Check. Check & check.

THIS EVERGREEN BRICKWORKS WEDDING ALL DAY LONG

Written by Jessica - Posted November 25th - Photographs by A Brit & A Blonde

“You are the Game of Thrones to my Sunday nights” Adrienne told Sean during her speech. I well up a little bit every time I think of that line. It stayed with me. It was perfect. It was them through and through. It should therefore come as no surprise that Adrienne is a writer – she is also an artist and an insanely stunning bride.

Adrienne & Sean’s fall wedding at Evergreen Brick Works in Toronto was gorgeous, fun, marvellous, touching & incredible. The truth is it was an entire thesaurus of perfection. Sean’s sister and brother-in-law literally built by hand the wedding arch for the outdoor ceremony that looked right out of a fairytale. Adrienne could have probably worn a paper bag to the wedding and made that look like avant garde Paris fashion. She did however opt for a Vera Wang piece of sheer magnificence instead. Sean, who is head of Production at a rad creative production company in Toronto was doubly dapper and teared up when he saw his bride walk down the aisle – let’s be real here – I think we all did.

Sean comes from out East and Adrienne is from out West.  Her dad is a cowboy – hat included – which he wore during the father/daughter dance in true Calgary style. They had jams from Newfoundland – where Sean hails – as their guest favours. Family for these guys is everything and the love from their amazing group of friends was bouncing off the walls. The fall colours were in full effect & the grounds of Evergreen Brickworks are pretty much just a wedding photographer’s dream come true. Every corner, every walkway, every where we looked – there was beauteous-ness-tacity. We could have happily shot there for days – alas toasts needed toasting, dances needed to be danced and scrumptious food needed scarfing.

To Adrienne & Sean – may every day feel like Sunday night and may every show be as amazing as Game of Thrones.

Dori Christie: Stunning....every bit about this story. Bless, Bless Adrienne and Sean and may they only know health, happiness and love in their adventure. xoxo ~ Dori
