Memorable First Looks and Wedding Speeches

The most memorable parts of the day were both my first look with my father and my first look with my husband-to-be. The private pre-ceremony and the ceremony were both perfect moments I’ll remember forever. Finally, one of my favorite memories was my father’s and the best man’s speeches which had me in tears from laughter and joy!

Making Concrete Favors Personal 

My husband and I love the look of concrete. Funny enough, my husband is actually in the concrete industry so we used a lot of concrete pieces that we made together, including mini concrete candles we gave as favours for our guests.

DIY Distillery District Wedding 

We created everything besides the flowers. We created the concrete centerpieces, table numbers, all the table decor, signage for entry, and seating charts.

This Candlelit Toronto Wedding at Airship 37 is Dreamy *

Julianne and Sean’s candlelit Toronto wedding at Airship 37 is impossibly dreamy in every way! Since the couple got married in January, they knew the natural light would be gone by the time of our ceremony. Along with their expert planner, Shannon Bellisle, they got remarkably creative and imagined an intimate ceremony that was simple and made an impact. We think they totally pulled it off—and more! From Julianne, “Filling the space with candles brought a glow to the room that elevated the intimacy. This feeling was carried through with the room flip making our wedding reception feel like one big dinner party with our family and friends.” Babes, let this be your permission to think outside-the-box and do something totally unique for your day! If you’ve been dreaming of a totally romantic day, we can’t wait for you to see everything from the florals Hunt and Gather Floral created to the bride’s lovely BHLDN gown, all captured with beauty by Scarlet O’Neill.

The Wedding:

Airship 37, Toronto, Canada

I wanted my look to be natural and simple and I really just wanted to look like me! I chose a dress that was simple and that I would feel comfortable wearing throughout the night. My makeup artist nailed the natural look, and I chose a lipstick that I wear often in real life to complement some of the other colors we used.

Our photographer was amazing. She kept the mood light and kept us laughing all afternoon and evening. She knew all of the best places for photos at the historic hotel we stayed at. My favorite photo is one of the first look photos that our photographer took. There is a picture of me holding my bouquet and looking at Sean laughing – a picture that coincidentally looks exactly like a picture from my parents wedding. My mother passed away when I was young so this is a really special photo for me.

The most memorable part of the day was being able to see the ceremony room together before any guests were allowed into the room. We saw everything we had planned come together perfectly and it felt like our own little secret for those few minutes before everything kicked off.

My biggest piece of advice would be to bring on a coordinator to help pull all of the pieces together for you. I don’t know what I would’ve done without Shannon – from our countless calls before the wedding to our detailed itinerary keeping all of our vendors organized so that we could just spent that time together with our family and friends. She was truly a life saver!

Airship 37 was perfect because we were looking for a venue that had a cozy winter wedding vibe and one that would allow us to have lots of candles to create that romantic atmosphere.
