Nicole and Jorden had an elegant wedding at Hawthorn Estates. Their day screamed timeless elegance, with a classic all white colour palette with pops of greenery. Hawthorn Estates provided the perfect backdrop for their day! Nicole and Jorden were Full Planning clients. This means we handled everything from style and design, vendor communications, budget creation and management, to wedding day execution.  One thing Nicole and Jorden wanted was an intimate wedding day. They only invited their closet family and friends for a total guest list of 80 people. This smaller guest list allowed us to really create some WOW factor with our design!

We were originally planning to hold the ceremony outdoors. Unfortunately, the weather was not cooperating and we had to quickly pivot to an indoor ceremony.  We always come prepared with backup plans! We transformed the head table space with stunning floral installations. We filled the space with hundreds of white roses and carnations, and had piles of white rose petals with candles to make the space feel more intimate. This included a stunning overhead floral install! They couldn’t have asked for a more perfect backdrop. As guests entered the space, they were greeted with a string quartet that really helped set the mood for their romantic ceremony.

After the ceremony, guests were off to cocktail hour in the solarium. We transformed this space into a dreamy cocktail hour. We brought in all-white bars for the bars, and we even had a customized oyster station! This oyster bar was such a hit with the guests, along with their signature cocktail! This brought such a unique touch to the day. We brought in chandeliers and twinkly lights for romantic ambient lighting later in the evening. During cocktail hour, we quickly transformed the ceremony space back into a stunning head-table location before guests re-entered for the reception!

When guests walked into this reception space, they were WOW’D! We went all out with lush florals. We hung greenery from the ceiling to tie everything together. The head table had long runners of white roses across the top, along with lush greenery mixed with roses at the bottom of the table. Candles filled the bottom of the head table, creating a romantic look and feel. Tall and short white floral centerpieces were mixed and matched throughout the guest table, really making the lush floral vision come to life! Candles and overhead textured lighting were used to really make the mood of the room feel intimate.

One of our favorite parts of the reception space was the dessert bar! We matched the outdoor bars inside to make spaces flow together. We repurposed some of the florals at the ceremony space to make the dessert bar stand out. I mean, it just looks stunning!
