Kirsty and Stephane’s Bohemain Flower Filled Canadian Wedding by Toast Events

I have a real treat for you with today’s real wedding. It’s a flower filled affair, brimming with boho goodness and so many beautiful details that make this Canadian wedding a real treat for the eyes. Kirsty the stunning bride looks radiant in her custom-made gown, while Stephane is totally dashing in his relaxed look, what a beautiful couple! I just love the outdoor ceremony, the table plan, the decor but most of all the amazing flowers that literally fill every space possible! Big thanks Elsie from Toast Events for the wonderful submission and to Joel Bedford for the gorgeous photos.

Lots of dancing with friends and family on a warm night!

Kirsty and Stephane were married on the 15th August 2015 in their home backyard in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. ‘We have a gorgeous willow tree in the yard and lots of space. It also helped keep it quite personal! We had 140 guests and the wedding took 1 year to plan.’

How they met
We met at Maxwell’s (a local bar/nightclub) where we both worked. We’ve been together off and on for 13 years

The proposal
We were in Cairns, Australia. We headed over to green island for a day of snorkelling in the reef. While following a sea turtle, underwater, Steph pulled out a sealed paper that read “Kirsty, will you marry me?”

How did you allocate your budget
To be honest, there was no real budget, just conscious spending

Where did you splurge and where did you save
We definitely splurged on the florals…..it’s not a wedding without florals!

How did you choose your photographer
Not only are they friends, but we loved their style

My dress was custom made by my mom, and designed by me. I wore something blue as a TACORI ring, and my shoes were footless sandals from The table Lands, Kuranda, Australia and for the evening I wore sandals by Salvatore Ferragamo

The suit and bridesmaids
The suit is a Zzenga and the bridesmaid dresses from Boutique 1861, kimonos from Nordstrom. The flower girl skirts were also custom made by my mom.
