I do,…….vintage style.

On October 5, 2013, Elena and Rob had their wedding celebration at Enoch Turner Schoolhouse in Corktown.

What a perfect setting for this stylish and fun couple.  Enoch Turner is a Victorian – era school that was built in 1848 with an adjoining West Hall added in 1869.  It is also the first free school in Toronto and today is the oldest school still standing.

It is part of the heritage trust which also include the venue spaces; George Brown House and the Ontario Heritage Centre.

The overall wedding had a 1950’s vintage feel to it.  Elena and her gals looked alluring in their cocktail length dresses while the groom and his groomsmen looked very dapper in their suits and bow ties.

Elena collected teapots and teacups to use as vessels for the flowers for her centerpieces.  She also painstakingly made table runners with book pages that were taped together and edged with a press that made them look like a doily which added to the vintage charm.  Gorgeous flags were strung along between the beams of the ceiling and books wrapped with craft paper and lace were added as additional props to the tables.

The flowers consisted of a lovely mix of pink, white and green flowers. The garden like flowers included lysianthus, roses, astilbe, queen anne’s lace, snowberry and thlaspia with accents of fragrant wax flower and seeded eucalyptus.

The overall feel for this wedding was so charming and intimate that once we completed the set up,  we just knew a good time would be had by all.

Nothing could possibly bring this fashionable couple to their wedding quite like a stunning pistachio cream coloured Cadillac.

Congratulations to Elena and Rob.  Best Wishes to this fun couple for a lifetime of happiness.
