Real Wedding: Theresa and JD

In Love Stories

table decor

We don’t see sunny yellow as an accent colour in weddings as much as I think we should – it’s cheerful and lovely! We also really love that in lieu of wedding favours, Theresa and JD chose instead to make a donation to Sick Kids Foundation – a nice alternative to giving your wedding guests another knick-knack and it’s for a good cause ūüôā

Check out the wedding ingredient list and some commentary from the bride:

Couple: Theresa and JD
Wedding Date: August 18th, 2012

The Wedding Ingredient List:

We had our ceremony in their¬†Sculpture¬†Garden, Cocktail reception in one of the Galleries, and our reception in their¬†Pavilion. Their chef was¬†fantastic¬†and the food – to die for!”

[icon name=icon-heart]¬†Flowers¬†‚ÄstThe Flower Market (Cambridge) “Doug was amazing – he knew what I wanted and was such an artist to make everything look beautiful!”

Some words of wisdom from the bride…

1.¬†Don’t talk about all the details – Keep some¬†elements¬†of¬†surprise. Plus, you don’t always need to have a conversation about every detail you decide.

2. Don’t be afraid to ask for help with everything! Everyone will want to help, but no one will know how to or where to start – you have to ask!
3. Nothing can be done too far in advance.
4. Keep track of your budget – it’s just one day and there are other big purchases you will want to make!
