MELISSA + ERICH

If I didn't think that Melissa was truly one of the sweetest people on earth, I certainly do now! It was plain to see that not just from my perspective, but from those who know her well - she impresses upon people her joy and happiness for everything around her. And she loves Erich - which even if he wasn't a truly amazing human (which he is), that would be enough to say a lot about him! He's serious and doesn't always say much, but when he does - listen. And although "sweet" isn't the first word that comes to mind when I'm looking for descriptors for Erich - that's all I can see when he looks at her. She's everything to him + him to her. It's pretty obvious that they would do anything for one another and in each other they have found their forever. They picked a day in February to get married and it was perfect.

ALBINA + MARK - PART ONE

We have been just itching to share this wedding! We are finally able and I don't even know where to start. Mark and Albina (as well as their love) have captured me by the heart for sure! They both have creative souls and so much respect for the arts and for each other. I always felt like we could create something beautiful together with so much ease. They are kind, open, willing and excited about everything. The world is their oyster and I have really enjoyed being in their presence and learning from the way they live life. My heart is so full and thankful for having been a part of their lives and of their day.

We are excited to have had Mark and Albina's Graydon Hall Manor wedding featured in the 10th issue of Lavish Dulhan magazine! There are so many images and so much to share that we have broken this up into 2 posts. Today we'll share their ceremony and later on we will share their reception. As always it was an absolute pleasure working with Malvina of Fabulous Occasions - she is just incredible!

INGRID + GREG'S WEDDING DESIGN by FABULOUS OCCASIONS

Today we wanted to try something a little different! We have been so fortunate to work with some of Toronto's top wedding vendors over the last few years and Malvina Chevolleau of Fabulous Occasions is no exception. We absolutely adore working with her! She can make any idea/vision/dream come true, creating a wedding day that's truly unique and magical. Her attention to detail and experience in the industry is invaluable when planning a wedding day. We look forward to working with Malvina again and again in the future!

Ingrid and Greg were planning an intimate wedding for close family and friends, after many years together. They wanted something truly elegant, classic and beautiful with lots of flowers and romance. Malvina delivered this in spades!
