It was all part of Vanessa and Nick’s vision for their wedding day. The stylish couple worked closely with Toronto wedding designer and stylist Rachel Clingen to create a stunning and unforgettable event. The venue sparkled with unique crystal decor pieces including beautiful glitzy lamp shades. Guests were wowed with the incredible design, which included a lucite head table and couture tufted panels.

The wedding reception may be the party of all parties as far as wedding events for the couple and bride-to-be. But for the bridal party, family and friends; pre-wedding parties are momentous celebrations. With this premise, we staged a lifestyle shoot that revolves around a very important but often neglected pre-wedding party: the bridesmaids’ luncheon. Our luncheon celebrates the beauty and glamour of the Antebellum era in a Modern Plantation Garden soiree. It’s all about the sweetness of the South with modern and DIY details, in a palette of mint and gold, with touches of peach, cream, and white.
A Rococo settee in front of The Plantation House was the perfect sitting area for the bride-to-be in a floral and proper Southern dress but with a modern edge. Hobnail milk glasses were DIY’ed by dipping in gold acrylic paint, unassuming juice bottles were turned into simple vases with just a coat of paint and washi tape. Plate settings are perfect with mint green plates with gold rim paired with goldware. Menu items are marked by vintage hardware and the favors are soaps in a decorated box with with handmade peach-pink paper roses. The soiree continues to the pool area, and the party is not complete without a bar cart, perfect parfaits, peach bellinis, and the quintessential Southern dessert, pecan pies (in adorable miniature, of course!)
