We’ve been so busy with the wedding season and haven’t had the time to update our blog for a while, but Wence and Andrew’s epic wedding definitely need a big shoutout and deserves a blog post on its own.  Last summer we had the pleasure of planning Wence and Andrew’s beautiful wedding at Arlington Estates. It was a gorgeous day filled with family, friends, fun and fireworks! All photos captured by the talented Joee Wong. The wedding attire was spectacular, from the shoes to the jewelry.

The ladies got ready in their customized robes, showcasing their hair done by Katerine Rapoport.

Meanwhile the guys were all ready to head over to Arlington for the big day.

Let’s not forget about the traditional attire, and this gorgeous couple that rocked it.

And finally, the dress! Wence was stunning in this off the shoulder gown.

And what wedding would be complete without rings? Here’s a close-up of the amazing set:

As we mentioned, the wedding took place completely at Arlington Estates in Klienburg, Ontario. The secluded venue offered lush greenery, large grounds and amble space for the ceremony and reception to take place.

Plus, the dance floor by Axe Media Group tied together the geometric shapes on the tables and in the backdrop display.

The beauty is in the details, like this welcome table and welcome sign.

We had some happy guests, but it’s doubtful that any guests were happier than the couple’s three dogs who all made their ceremony debut.

What better way to end the perfect day than with fireworks? One of the great things about Arlington Estates is the ability to have fireworks to end your wedding day off with a big display. These fireworks were provided by Pyro World, and had all the guests gathered in awe.

This day wouldn’t have been possible without our amazing team of vendors:

Looking back at all the weddings in 2018, this particular one is near and dear to my heart.  I’ve been working with our beautiful bride, Ashley, and her wonderful mother for over 2 years on the wedding and so happy to see that it is featured on Weduxe blog.  It is definitely one a fun one down in the books with the all-star vendor team.  There were lots of cultural traditions that made this wedding so special.  The Macedonian band started playing at Ashley’s house in the morning while the families arrived.  The music really uplifted everyone’s mood and the families are already dancing before heading to the church.  Ashley and Lee had their reveal at the backyard and everyone headed to the church together.

Ashley’s beautiful dress by Berta was our inspiration for the wedding design.  It’s definitely a showshopper! All the design elements evolved around her dress making it the statement of the wedding. The reception took place at The Eagles Nest Golf Club and more photo session took place on site.  It has so many picturesque locations for photos.

Festivities continued throughout the reception.  Breaking of the bread and traditional Macedonian pig dance kicked off the evening after the grand entrance started.  It was a lot of fun coordinating and witnessing it.  Of course Ashley got the bigger piece of the bread and wears the pants in their relationship.

After the bride and groom’s speech, they lead the guests to the terrace to watch the fireworks show and kicked off the dance floor with a Macedonian traditional bread dance.  I hope you enjoyed the story.  I had so much fun being a part of this wedding and should introduce the pig dance to other culture!

xo,
