Carina and Ray were married on May 14, 2011 at the Paramount Conference and Event Venue in Woodbridge, Ontario.
(WedLuxe:) How would you describe your wedding day?
(Carina:) “Amazing. Romantic, whimsical and entertaining!”
What was your favourite design detail?
“Our centerpieces; which were highlighted by spot lighting. We opted for minimal flowers at our wedding. Instead, we used silver faux manzanita trees which we decorated with fresh orchids and strands of running crystal.”
What was your biggest splurge during the planning process?
“Photography. Weddings go by so fast… we wanted to have amazing photography to help us remember our day forever.”
Who was your favourite wedding vendor and why?
“All of them were amazing, accommodating and made our vision to come to life. But if we have to pick one, we’d have to say the Paramount. People forget how beautiful a hall is decorated and how good the entertainment is, if the service and food at your wedding are sub-par. The menu was excellent and their service was outstanding.”
Carina wore a beautiful white San Patrick gown with a modern twist on a Spanish mermaid style with crystals and ruffles. Her bridesmaids each wore a different style dress by Dessy (to suit their individual body types) in sapphire blue and accessorized with custom jewellery by Tara Fava Jewellery.
