For this wedding our couple wanted subtle and romantic decor to highlight the features of the beautiful space selected for their venue.
The ceremony was held in a pavillion-styled chapel at Cambridge Mill, with wrap-around windows that incorporate the beautiful outdoor surroundings as a picture-perfect backdrop.
The couples’ reception was held in the Falls Room at the Cambridge Mill - a space that combines the old-world feeling of exposed stonework, a double-sided fireplace and hand-carved beams with modern elements such as modern lighting fixtures and the solarium with spectacular views of the Grand River.
A king’s table was set for the bridal party in front of a beautiful stone fireplace. Lush garland with delicate white roses were laid down the centre, surrounded by tapered and floating candles. The table was finished with a watercolour print of Cambridge Mill.
The light greenery with candles was carried through to guest tables. As a personal touch, the tables were named after places the couple had visited together, with watercolours of those locations painted by the matron of honour. Some of the locations included Hyde Park, Blarney Castle, Dunn’s River Falls and even Harry Potter Studio.
Stationary was custom-designed by the Blue Hummingbird, drawing inspiration from both the couple and the venue. Their monogram was inspired by their passion for fitness, using elements from the silhouette of a free weight barbell. The couple also wanted to include a maple leaf and shamrock to represent the combining of their Canadian and Irish identities. The underlay used textures found at the historic venue.

Some of the couples’ favourite things include CrossFit, doughnuts, and a good competitive game night. These things were woven into elements of their wedding.
