When Natalie at Celebrate Niagara invited us to meet with bride Teresa, we were thrilled to quote on another Stratus wedding. Drawing inspiration from bridal magazines, Teresa knew exactly what she wanted, an elegant and vintage feel to celebrate her marriage to Richard. Awash in hues of pink and blush, Teresa’s bouquet of roses, white phalaenopsis orchids, snow berry and eucalyptus complimented the elegance of her lace halter-style dress. The ceremony in the round was held under a romantic draped canopy, and officiated by the lovely Kathy Davis at Kettle Creek Weddings. With acres of grape vines in the background, an acoustic guitarist, and delicious hors d’oeuvres by Treadwell Farm to Table Cuisine, this Stratus Vineyards wedding was an affair to remember! Guests excitedly gathered in Press Alley, to be greeted by the impressive 90 foot reception table, adorned with menus by Defining Moments Stationary. A combination of slate planters, mercury glass, candlelight, and an array of florals provided a counterpoint to the industrial atmosphere of the venue. A trio of cakes designed by Willow Cakes perched on brass candle sticks greeted the guests, another idea from Teresa’s storyboard. The wine was flowing, and the couple was glowing with love. It’s a wedding made for sharing, thanks to Avenue Photo for capturing all the beautiful details!

After a few meetings with mom and daughter Katie, I was so excited to start working on her peony-filled wedding. I loved the simplicity of a wedding with no bridal party, and the under-stated dress which really suited Katie’s style. The hot pink flowers were definitely a great compliment to Press Alley with all the concrete and steel, bringing life and beauty to such an industrial space. And look how cute the groomsman looks in his polka-dot bowtie!
