Nature served as the inspiration for Ellen & Zac’s summer California wedding. The church and reception venue’s architectural design was the basis of the decor.

The soft white walls of the venue set the stage for Jane & Phillip’s romantic wedding. While New York City has an atmosphere of busy and harsh, this wedding is the complete opposite.

Purple is the key theme in today’s wedding: orchid flowers to linen napkins to bridesmaids dresses. Paired with a white base, the color popped for Dorene & Ed’s wedding.

With guests from all over the world, the groom’s British roots was the inspiration behind Mary-Kate & Dan’s international affair. The bride’s statement shoes and the groom’s cake both adorned the British flag.

This literary-inspired wedding took place at the Paper Factory Hotel, which was an actual paper factory in another lifetime. This venue was the center of their eclectic wedding day inspiration.

Jayme and Alex ‘s wedding is a mixture of natural and glam. We love the ceremony backdrop of exposed brick paired with the bold initials and garland.

Ashley & Chase’s Beach Wedding

To retreat from the Canadian cold weather, Ashley and Chase wanted to have their wedding at the beach. They chose Palm Beach, Florida because they visited one Fourth of July and fell in love with The Breakers. Their small destination wedding was exactly what they envisioned as they said their own vows among their closest friends and family.

Katie & Brian’s Desert Wedding

As an editor at Real Simple, Laura’s wedding to John in New York City was bound for creativity. With the “city that never sleeps” as inspiration, possibilities are endless. Even though the venue was indoors, the floor-to-ceiling windows created a waterfront feel. 

Gina & Carmen’s Musical Wedding

Gina had a vision for her wedding: a Jean Harlow-inspired affair with simple elegance. The bride and groom hosted the reception at The Mansion on Delaware Avenue, a luxury hotel in Buffalo, New York.

From the photographer: July 17 is the day Julie would walk down the aisle and marry Denis at the church in Casselman.

The day started with photos of the groom and his boys in a park in Casselman.  They all looked handsome and were very entertaining.

Julie was surrounded by her family and friends and all her nephew and nieces. The bridesmaids looked radiant and their coral dress and flowers from Passiflora. Perfect color for a summer wedding.

What Are Your Choices For A Wedding Venue?

Getting married is supposed to be the most wonderful day of your life. But getting to the ceremony takes months of planning and preparation. It can all be quite stressful for the poor bride! One of the most difficult things to arrange is the venue itself. Finding the right place on the date of your choice can be harder than you think. Many of the best wedding venues are often booked up months and years in advance.

There are alternatives, though. Rather than change your preferred date, why not change your destination? A destination wedding provides you with far more options too. Some places allow you to wed outdoors in the garden or even on the beach. And if you can guarantee good weather for your wedding, wouldn’t you be tempted?

One of the things that put so many couples off a destination wedding is getting the guests to come. Some brides feel it is necessary to cover the travel and accommodation costs for their guests when they are marrying overseas. For the bride and groom, it’s easy. Most newlyweds stay on at the destination to enjoy their romantic honeymoon. But many guests have to make the journey home again to get back to their families and jobs.
