Tiffany & Michael | October 11, 2014
On Thanksgiving weekend 2014 Tiffany and Michael had a beautiful outdoor wedding set in the courtyard of the Liberty Grand. With 360-degree seating, guests were able to enjoy a modern take on a Catholic ceremony integrated with Filipino customs. Over 200 of Tiffany and Michael’s closest friends and family attended the wedding coined “Dine. Drink. Dance.” with an intent of curating an incredible evening of entertainment for the guests. Contemporary style cues outlined the Artifacts Room, a cocktail-styled reception provided attendees with a fresh take on a traditional celebration and two bands, four DJs and two sets of surprise performers appeared throughout the evening’s itinerary. “Don’t forget to take a step back and take it all in. It’s all about you and your partner. Make sure you carve out time to spend with each other. The day will fly by!” – Tiffany

The primary source of inspiration behind this “Dinner & Dancing” wedding created by Hey Gorgeous Events - unbeknownst to the bride Alex – was her Jenny Packham gown. It’s soft and ethereal flow influenced the florals, textures and decor of the entire event making it a perfect basis for the venue, Liuna Gardens. The colour palette – made up of dark greens, touches of black and gold juxtaposed with soft peaches, blushes and ivories – touched all elements of the decor. Lots of textures with the linens, colour variance with the centrepieces and over 125 pillar candles placed around the venue effortlessly radiated a romantic atmosphere for the bride, groom, family and friends in attendance.

This dreamscape décor focuses on bringing a bride and groom from down on earth to up in the clouds for inspiration. Think light, fluffy and soft at the touch. Pink roses, invitations, tableware and shoes mixed with white feathery details in the gown, headpiece, light fixtures, linens and birdcage treat holders create a chic scene that translates the possibility of boho dreams becoming a reality. Exposed brick walls, large windows and a soft colour palette become the perfect backdrop for a dreamlike state that you don’t want to wake from. Dare to fall deeper and deeper in love with this style shoot.
