Violet and Ivory Wedding at Cielo's Garden
More from bride Renee.. Jordon and I were on the same page right from the beginning; we wanted our wedding day to take place with the wind in our hair and summer sunshine gleaming in. We envisioned a traditional ceremony followed by a reception full of laughter and all night dancing. The weather threatened our vision with a thunderstorm forecasted all day and night, but the clouds opened up and the sunshine came down just hours before we said I do. Our wedding planner, Sharon Webb Events, coordinated everything so seamlessly that we weren't even worried about the weather. She took control of everything and allowed us to enjoy ourselves worry-free!
For the colour scheme we went with mostly neutrals and added in pops of colour in the decor and in my gorgeous bouquet from Academy Florist. Jordon and his guys wore deep midnight blue suits which balanced the violet and ivory tones in the florals, and we carried the same palette through the ceremony and reception.
There were so many great moments packed in the whirlwind of a day, but by far some of the best memories occurred at our ceremony. I will never forget the look in Jordon's eyes when I was reading my personal vows to him, along with the laughs we shared with everyone when he tried to kiss me after completing them! Jordon's father officiated the ceremony and for us, that was pretty darn special too.
For the reception, we wanted to be comfortable. We choose to play up to the beautiful handcrafted tables and wooden chairs with some undone touches; mismatched florals and greenery draped on the tables, wooden DYI handcrafted signs, and a BBQ style-meal and serve yourself desert table. One of our favourite decor features ended up being something that was thrown together last minute; for our bar we choose to bring Jordon's mother's kitchen hutch, one with doors Jordon hung on as a child! It was styled it up so nicely and we could not have been more thrilled by how perfectly it completed the space!
