Anthea and Simon wanted to have their wedding in Italy - this is where their tight-knit family is from! Instead of a destination wedding, they thoughtfully designed every details to transport their guests to Tuscany, while still being in Canada. I felt transported to the Italian countryside on this amazing day, and so welcomed by their family (the whole day Anthea's mom could not stop asking if I had eaten enough, or tried the wine, and I truly felt like a guest with a camera).
Some of the unique details include the venue itself - a rustic brick courtyard with whimsical string lights, unique centrepieces - Italian busts filled with flowers, a surprise rolls royce with gold balloons, special olive oil favors from Italy, stunning gold chargers, a cute, post office guestbook, and stationary with custom illustrations of the venue.
...but more than any important details was how intimate and connected this wedding was. Anthea & Simon had a close relationship with every one of their guests, and made sure the day was spent to make meaningful time with them and each other.
