When you have a great space to work with, it is amazing to see how details like lighting, linens, draping, flowers, and place settings can completely transform it.
A few weeks ago we shared Jennifer and Kent’s beautiful Fermenting Cellar wedding on the blog and this week we have an example of another gorgeous wedding that had a different look and feel, but still worked beautifully with the raw elements that the Distillery District’s Fermenting Cellar brings to the table.
For Alexis and Jason’s wedding, we used a primarily monochromatic colour palette - whites and ivories with hints of silver and gold. From the floral arrangements to the bridesmaids, the look was polished and chic with a touch of whimsy.
Mercury glass vases, which held beautiful white blooms reflected the light beautifully and played off the hints of silver and gold that were found throughout the décor.
Personalized stickers placed on mason jars doubled as place settings and take home favours.
Aren’t these striped straws adorable? It’s hard to see – but the little flags say “A hearts J.” The mason jar dipped in glitter added a nice sparkly touch.
All in all, a gorgeous wedding, a beautiful couple, and happy wedding planners! Photography by the talented Jenn & Dave Stark.

Who could use a drink?
Choosing a signature cocktail is a great way to personalize your event. While the sky is the limit for drink options, classic cocktails are really making a comeback!
Hendrick’s was the star ingredient in these Cucumber Mint Gimlets that we mixed up for a recent wedding. By far our favourite gin, Hendrick’s has a very complex flavour with hints of bulgarian rose and cucumber. Served up in mason jar glasses with adorable striped straws, these cocktails set the tone perfectly for this garden party wedding.
Hendrick’s Cucumber Mint Gimlets
4 Parts Hendrick’s Gin
2 Parts Fresh Lime Juice
1 Part Simple Syrup
Sparkling Water (optional)
Cucumber Slices & Mint Sprigs, for garnish
While the classic gimlet omits the sparkling water, you can add it if you would like a lighter cocktail. Mix up a pitcher of gimlets and enjoy them in the backyard with friends while the weather is still warm!

One of our favourite venues in the city is the Distillery District’s Fermenting Cellar. It serves as a blank canvas where the sky is the limit when it comes to what elements you can introduce for a truly spectacular event.
Jennifer and Kent were married last fall and hosted a reception in the Fermenting Cellar that was dripping with romance and glamour.

Editorial spreads are an amazing opportunity for us to let our imaginations run wild! The latest issue of Wedluxe featured a whimsical spread that we dreamed up with the help of some of the best Toronto’s wedding industry has to offer.

We’ve got an extra special video to share today! Julia and Kieran’s wedding at the Royal Conservatory of Music was so beautiful and is perfectly captured in this highlight film from Honey & Dear.
We’re still dreaming about their sweet table which was piled high with an ombré pink ruffled wedding cake, customized chocolate bars, french macarons and of course, pink champagne! Take a look:
