Romantic Backyard Wedding

September 19, 2020

Talk about a magazine couple, I don’t think I will ever get over how stunning Marjorie is or how dapper Todd looked in his custom navy/black tux.

This romantic backyard wedding has all the timeless details, stunning installs, and iconic black & white flooring to create this elegant setting for their day. But it wasn’t all sunshine and roses during the planning process as the Pandemic once again turns their dream wedding upside down and we had to come up with a backup plan that still gave them that feeling and specialness they’d been dreaming of.

Marjorie & Todd were all set to celebrate at a venue in Muskoka with a guest list of over 200 of their nearest and dearest. But of course we were left heartbroken and in shambles when all their plans had to drastically change, over and over again, with no real certainty if we would even be able to move forward. But everything came together and they were able to create lasting memories on family property, a lot right down the street from their new home, where they can walk by over and over again and relive all the moments.

Speaking of moments, want to know some of my favourite details from this day? I’ll tell you!

01. The Tent

The black and white checkered floor is such a classic statement piece for me, I honestly love it so much we are doing this look in our front entryway of our new home reno. But the goal with the tent was to whisk you away and make you feel like you were part of this romantic, fairytale experience – outside of just a backyard tented wedding. We had the entire tent draped to create that soft, elegant setting. And then we wanted your eye to be drawn to all the magic, from the floor right up to the ceiling install. Magic, magic, magic.

02. The Lounges

We wanted guests to be able to experience the property while still feeling like they were part of this romantic experience. Our lounges had views of the gorgeous waterfront, and also a backdrop of framed photos to help tell the story of Marjorie & Todd and their history. With the crips September air the lounges were a huge hit, especially with a cozy blanket and a beverage on hand.

03. Their Pups Appearance

Even though they couldn’t be there for the wedding, Marjorie & Todd have such a special bond with their blended pup family they knew they wanted them there in some way. So of course this custom bar sign with their signature cocktails was a huge hit! And also, spicy margaritas for the win every day.

This wedding is such a dream, and honestly I absolutely adore these two! Their kindness for others and their compassion drew me in from the beginning and I will never forget how incredible they made me feel with their words of encouragement and constant trust & support. But more than that, their love for each other, the way Todd looks at Marjorie every day not just on this day, and the strength and passion I can see between the two of them is an incredibly beautiful thing to have been able to witness.
