Natalie + Rick – Old Hollywood Glam at The Old Court House
Natalie and Rick live and work in Toronto but needed to host the wedding in London, Ontario because Rick’s grandmother could not travel. Wendy was more than thrilled to be a part of their celebrations as the University of Western Ontario was her old stomping grounds and this was the initial setting they had in mind for the wedding. Rick is also an alumni as well, so it made sense that it was incorporated as the wedding photography location of preference afterwards.
With Wendy’s assistance, further site inspections were conducted. She then guided them through the cuisine options. Natalie and Rick ultimately decided to host their event at the Old Court House. With a majestic exterior backdrop for their wedding ceremony, an intimate courtyard for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres to the final grand entrance to the venue – this became their ultimate selection of an unique wedding venue.
Natalie had a really long list of colours that she was really passionate about. These included tangerine, fuchsia pink, robin’s egg blue, scarlet red, and egg yolk yellow. In addition to all these colours – Rick loved the regal look of white and black damask patterns. Wendy took up the challenge and designed something to satisfy all their hearts desires. The flowers, wedding decor and silver candelabras were all supplied by Patzees Floral Scapes. This was a sweet reunion as Patzee was formerly one of Wendy’s floral instructors through Flowers Canada – Ontario chapter.
During the dinner reception, Rick and Natalie conducted the traditional Korean Paebaeck tea ceremony. For Natalie’s French Canadian family and friends, this was the first time they had ever seen this tea ceremony. As a nod to Natalie’s French Canadian heritage, French wine and poutine were served during the evening’s celebrations. Their beautiful wedding images were captured by The Last Forty Percent Photography.
