When Vanessa and Vito saw The Hunt Club they immediately fell in love. And I would too – it is so magical and peaceful there. Vanessa says that it “feels like an oasis in cottage country” and that they absolutely loved the tall trees, the storybook house and the amazing view of the water. Unfortunately, The Hunt Club was too small to accommodate all their family and friends for their wedding reception so they chose The Arlington Estate for its light and airy feel within the room.
Vanessa wore two bridal dresses. For the ceremony, she wore a very romantic and bridal lace dress by Enzoani that had a pretty garden fairy vibe. She later changed to very elegant form-fitting bridal dress by Theia for their reception which showed off her petite frame. Vanessa wore sparkly blue heels from Jeffrey Campbell which reminded her of “a Cinderella shoe on steroids”. It was definitely fun!
Their head table at their wedding reception was beautifully drummed up by Paulina from Fete Floral + Events. A gold votive wall was set up like garden dates and a watercolour mural in Vanessa and Vito’s wedding colours was hung in the middle. An array of colourful floral centrepieces in pinks, corals, yellow and white decorated the room. They definitely wanted to have a garden inspired wedding which was whimsical and fun yet very elegant. Vito created the invitations himself using the beautiful watercolour theme and kept it looking dreamy and ethereal. They chose shimmering blue envelopes which contrasted the gold laser-cut enclosure and the gold foil text.
Vanessa really wanted dry ice for her first dance with Vito but didn’t think they could. She was happily surprised when they brought it out for her and her expression was priceless. Overall, Vanessa and Vito’s wedding was fun just like they are as a couple. They just looked so so happy to have this day come finally!
