Romantic Outdoor Private Estate Wedding
Boy do we have a wedding FULL to the brim of beautiful details today! This Ontario wedding at a private estate (the groom's family home!) was sent in by Photographs by Caileigh and SS Events Co. is the perfect outdoor romantic garden wedding inspiration for those planning an elegant garden soiree...
From the Bride: "Jordan and I met almost four years ago at his brother’s wedding. He was the best man and I was a friend of the bride and it was when I was tackled to the floor trying to catch the bouquet, I caught Jordan’s eye! We started dating and when we had only been together a couple months he invited me to his sister’s wedding, in South Africa! After spending a month on the other side of the world together with his entire family, we knew we had something special that could last a lifetime. We moved in together, got our fur baby Calvie Cat and the rest was history! It was an easy decision to get married at Jordan’s parents house near Port Perry, Ontario. Not only had it been Jordan’s family home since high school but it is a stunning French Chateau style estate settled on 100 acres of property. Our vision was a romantic, floral, outdoor theme and my love for ballet influenced our colour palette of blush, white with accents of gold and green.
"I tried on dozens of wedding dresses but when I couldn’t find what I was looking for on the rack, I decided to look into custom. I met with Catherine Langlois and knew with her style and work she could build me my dream dress. It was so much fun to see my dress come together over the months and have my input in every stage of the gown. The skirt was tulle with a layer of blush underneath and the beaded lace was the same lace as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding gown. It was everything I had dreamt of and more! Celebrating our commitment with family and friends was the most important part of our day and what better way to celebrate than with a band! We saw the St Royals perform a couple of times in Toronto and knew pretty quickly we needed them for our day. We went all out and hired their instrumental duo for the ceremony, jazz quartet for cocktails and 7 piece band for the reception. It was a party to say the least!
One of the main reasons we decided to have our wedding on our own property was so we could hand select all of our vendors. For cocktail hour we brought in Tide & Vine from Niagara to shuck oysters and our dinner was smoked BBQ meats by Adamson Barbecue. We are massive pizza lovers so we hired Pizza Settecento to bring wood fired pizza for late night eats when everyone’s dancing feet needed a break from the band."
