The Colarossi nuptials was not only the marriage of two souls, but the sacred pact of family bond between three people – Ashley, Anthony and their daughter Hailey. Their wedding day was adorned with a seamless fusion of traditional details and modern finishes, finessed by all their combined creative vision! It was very enlightening to see a groom’s equal creative input for his own wedding day, and I welcomed such rare enthusiasm with very, very open arms!

 

This year, expressive socks were quite a hit – and his troupe did not disappoint! Their socks’ theme was food-inspired and the groomsmen definitely used them as ice-breakers later on! The groom opted for lighter attire – suspenders and a vest over his dress shirt, topped with a flat cap. It was a wise choice, as they later had to endure some pretty steamy weather.

Ashley also made a wise decision of wearing flat boots, along with her bridesmaids, making it easy to walk down the grass for their outdoor ceremony at Sprucewood Shores. It was very unique to note that her Maid of Honor was her own mother! Their wedding decor was country chic with naturally bespoke elegance, touched by modern trends and yet still strongly observed traditional details. The colour theme was navy blue with earthly tones, a beautiful contrast to the bride’s fire red hair.

 

For the reception, we ventured almost an hour North to an Italian hall called Fogolar Furlan, as a small celebration of Anthony’s heritage. The decor in the hall was as breathtaking as the ceremony; and it was as if we brought the it all with us. It was quite a romantic sight to behold. The food was divine, of course, all thanks to the groom, a culinary connoisseur! Ashley and Anthony were there to inspire awe and they most certainly over-delivered in their plight.
