Huge balloons, fresh fruit, and bright florals all came together to produce Olivia and Rob’s fun wedding at Caffino Ristorante in Toronto, Ontario. Designed Dream Wedding Planning created a vintage look with a fresh twist. Offering a unique party favor, the bride and groom gifted their guests with plants which were potted in individualized tea cups. We love how Olive Photography didn’t miss a moment capturing this unbelievably unique wedding!
Olivia and Rob
Caffino Ristorante, Toronto, Ontario
I was going for a more vintage look which inevitably includes a little gold glam, but wanted there to be a really romantic whimsical feel to it as well. Caffino certainly has a vintage yet eclectic feel so both the rentals and my own décor items seemed to fit perfectly with the venue! Then I added lots of florals, some peaches, and succulents in vintage teacups to play up the romance and whimsy. Some other details were a perfect blend of the two styles like the invitations which had gold foiled leaves on blush paper, with a soft font and the cake with gold bands yet soft and playful flowers and all the hand lettering.
Olivia: So hard to choose! But, probably walking down the aisle and taking in the moment. After almost a decade, this day was finally here! Other great moments were watching Keenan (my brother) and Kirsten (now sister in law) perform, finally being able to relax with my bridesmaids the morning of, and getting ready and having fun singing Britney, Backstreet Boys, and Spice Girls. Also, watching everyone enjoying everything including the delicious food, heartfelt speeches, spectacular music, and each others’ company.
Rob: When I saw Olivia walking down the aisle. She looked stunning! The music and everyone standing really made me appreciate the magnitude of what was about to transpire.
The Couple Recommends:
Our advice to couples is to hire a day-of wedding coordinator! No matter how organized you are and how many details you’ve planned in advance, it is beyond helpful having someone else who knows exactly what is going on the entire day and is able to execute everything including your styling/decor and each and every “small” event of the day! There is absolutely no way the day would have been such a success without Fidan and her team! Choose vendors including florists and photographers who’s style is in sync with yours or who you feel has a really good understanding of your vision for the day is. It is also a bonus if they are super approachable and easy to work with- it makes the planning process and day of that much easier and more fun! Thank you Jaimie and Anastasia!
