Nicolle + Ian’s wedding took place on April 9, 2011, at Church Deer Park + The Carlu, in Toronto. The couple’s overall wedding revolved around their love of Toronto and art deco style. Before the wedding I was honored to meet Nicolle’s lovely parents Ilse + Jorn! I gotta say getting to plan with the couple and their parents for me has always been a breeze -but hey that’s just me! I collaborated with Nicolle and Isle, to assist in designing the floral and decor and menu.
Check out the gorgeous art deco stationary designed by Christine Flynn of Love The Design.
Seeing as Ian’s family is from the Nova Scotia and Nicolle’s from British Columbia, we thought it would be a good idea for the menu, to do a cross Canada tour. And of course the wine we chose was of the Okanagan Valley -my favorite Canadian wine region!
And who better to create such a stunning wedding menu than Chef Arpi Magyar of Couture Cuisine.
I was excited about the setup of the Round Room because its not a setup you see everyday at The Carlu. Using a pinwheel formation we set rectangle, kings tables around the fountain. Because the couple had under 100 guests we were able to achieve this uniformed look. Another great idea was to have Nicolle + Ian sit at the end of every table grouping during the serving of each course. This way they were able to thank all of their guests for coming.
Without further ado and courtesy of Nicole Charlton, Crimson Photos, I give you the wedding of Nicolle + Ian.
Thank you to all who helped make Nicolle + Ian’s wedding day a dream come true!
