Romantic Berkeley Field House Wedding in Toronto

 Christopher Luk 2014 - Candy and Francis' Wedding 125

This is such a great wedding with a neat flavour. Yup! I actually had to find a coca-cola while getting this amazing wedding ready for the blog. Why? Because the groom, Francis loves coca-cola (and basketball). They enlisted Sweetville who customized a coke flavoured batter cupcake with coke gummy on top and they used the classic coke glass bottle as centrepieces. Candy and Francis are a super cute couple and so thoughtful as well. To make their guests feel special, they addressed each and every wedding guest by name and thanked them personally. It was a long thank you speech, but everyone felt included and loved. So cool! Enjoy these great pictures captured by  Chris Luk

Tips for Choosing your Bridal Party

KateLuke_ByTrevorLarissa24

If you’ve just recently become engaged, congratulations! If you think the love of your life is about to propose (it’s that time of year…) I’m sure you’ve been thinking about so many details – especially who will be part of your bridal party.

Here are our top 5 tips for choosing your bridal party

KateLuke_ByTrevorLarissa05

  1. Don’t ask someone just because they asked you.
    There is no rule you have to repay the favour. You may just want your immediate family or perhaps there won’t be as many people in your bridal party. It’s ok, don’t stress about this!
  2. Think twice before you ask.
    On paper, that person may seem like a good idea… but really take the time to consider who you’d like to be part of your bridal party. These people will be in your pictures forever and you don’t want to have regrets later down the road.
  3. Include your brothers and sisters.
    Regardless of if you like it or not… these people are in your life forever. Unfortunately in some cases, friends come and go. Having siblings as part of your bridal party is smart as they are going to be in your pictures regardless, might as well include them in this portion of the wedding as a way to get them to participate.
  4. Consider the size of your wedding.
    The rule of thumb is 1 usher per 50 guests. And they usually have a maid or matron of honour that goes with them. So if you have a small wedding, having 10 bridesmaids may seem a bit much. Try and find a happy medium. (However the max is 12).
  5. Set honest expectations of what you want from your bridal party
    If you’re anything like me, I did most of the work and had my bridal party just choose their own style of dresses (I dictated colour) and I didn’t really have much expectations. Some brides could need more from their girls. It’s really up to that individual so it’s important to be clear at all times. This will be very handy latter on and will avoid any ill feelings towards each other.  (the term bridezilla most likely came from the fact that the bride did not set expectations and her bridal party thought she was asking too much of them)

So that’s it. What are your tips? Would love to hear them!

KateLuke_ByTrevorLarissa27

I am falling head over heels for this beautiful black and white wedding with gold details. It’s gorgeous, it’s sophisticated and fun! The couple, Kate and Luke, were high school sweethearts! (cute, right?).
The details of their wedding day are just perfect in every way! Their super talented photographers Trevor & Larissa captured their day flawlessly!
Here is more about the couple and their wedding day from Trevor & Larissa:
Kate & Luke are such a genuine, sweet couple – from the moment we met we were drawn to their excited outlook and couldn’t wait to hear more about their plans.  Well, as expected things came together flawlessly from the amazing attention to detail the romantic late-night lantern release.  It was a wedding filled with love and a sense of pure, sweet happiness.
Enjoy!
