A Brit & A Blonde share the Wedding of CARLY & ALEX:
Carly and Alex wanted their wedding decor to be a reflection of them as a couple – so their big day is quite modern, but still strongly rooted to family and cultural traditions.

The couple are from Toronto originally but now live in Vancouver. They really wanted to say their I Do’s back in their hometown.

We absolutely adore the fun and personal wall art and invitations depicting the couple which were created by their close friend and graphic designer Carlos Melendez.

The hand-made paper cranes decorating the altar and receiving table were lovingly crafted by Carly’s mother and her extended family in a multitude of colours; representing the Japanese tradition that the making of 1000 paper cranes will mean a wish will be granted. Alex’s grandmother also provided a special gift by hand-inking the individual table number cards in Chinese calligraphy.

The ceremony was performed by Carly’s uncle. And included many of the traditions of a Japanese wedding – which entails the bride and groom to drink quite a bit of sake!

The couple chose a mix of pinks, oranges and golds for their florals, table settings, and the paper lanterns.

They had a sushi bar all rolled fresh during cocktails in the beautiful adjoining room ( Gooderham Lounge) that has a cosy and very cocktaily vibe.

The sushi came from The Sushi Bar a restaurant that Alex’s family has been going to for years.
