If you are feeling pulled in two directions with your wedding day theme what if you tried to marry your ideas together? Mercedes and Felipe's big day took place in a gorgeous and historic Venue and really wanted to fill the space with wild and cascading florals, but also love the popular minimalist decor style of today. Lustre Events helped them to combine both of these styles into one epically beautiful wedding day.

From Lustre Events
Mercedes and Felipe wanted an intimate gathering with their nearest and dearest. Great food, great wine, and the greatest people. Our inspiration was 'Old World Vintage Romance'. Approachable and relaxed while bringing in all the elegance and detail.
The Great Hall is a gorgeous, historic, blank slate. It provides an airy, fresh environment that allows you so much creativity when designing in the space. We wanted to appreciate the character and ornate elements, but contrast that with some minimalist style to make the wedding feel current.
Ceremony & Cocktails
The ceremony took place in front of a stunning mantle. Patchouli created a wild and wispy floral installation that made the perfect backdrop. Each guests seat had a pashmina to keep warm in the February air and a fun ribbon wand to wave in celebration!
After the "I Do's" guests were treated to some authentic Margaritas and a tapas bar in honour of the groom's Mexican roots. Also showcased during cocktails was a slideshow of the couples Dia de los Muertos themed engagement photos, which were pretty epic!
The reception design was built on gorgeous white-washed harvest tables with flowing runners. Each place setting featured a piece of silk amber ribbon lettered with guests names. That little pop of colour accentuated the same tone in the water goblets. The organic and delicate floral centrepieces were paired with earthy toned fresh produce like figs, grapes, and pears lining the tables.
After dining on a delectable meal by Daniel et Daniel flickering candlelight filled the room. Everyone danced and mingled late into the night and fought that midnight hunger with some mini big mac's. It was a spectacular evening brimming with love and affection. One for the books!"
