Kate & Tatsuma's beautiful apple orchard wedding was hosted at the prestigious Langdon Hall Country House Hotel & Spa, in Cambridge, Ontario. The Hotel is one of just 14 Relais & Chateaux listed properties in Canada and offers an intimate reception space with world-class cuisine and service.
The couple came to me early in their planning process, realizing that they would need lots of help putting together a "Canadian style wedding"! Both were of Japanese descent, with Kate only based in Canada for a few years, and Tatsuma living in the U.S.
With a colour palette of blush, creamy ivory and soft yellow, we endeavoured to create a soft, feminine wedding design - accented with hints of Japanese culture. A beautiful sushi bar was a must, as was a Sake station for guests to enjoy this traditional Japanese libation. The wedding cake also had a unique detail - tiny little stitched details that mimicked Japanese "sashiko" a traditional style of Japanese embroidery. The stationery was also designed with influences of pink cherry blossoms which Japan is known for showcasing all over the country each Spring.
