The Big Fat Canadian/Croatian Wedding

We are so excited to finally share theses photos from Robin and Zvonimer’s wedding last summer at the Cecil Green House.  Photos courtesy of our friends over at  Kiss My Flash Photography.  We also had the pleasure of working with another one of our favourite vendors, Budget Blooms.  The pop of the hot pink roses in the centerpieces were our favourite!

We loved so many things about this wedding, were not even sure where to start.  I guess we can start at the ceremony.  In exchange for a traditional processional, Robin and Zvonimer led their “tribes” of closest friends and family members around the grounds to the circle ceremony. Robin wanted to literally be surrounded by the people they love most when they said their vows.

The majority of the guests in attendance were from out of town, a large portion of them made the trek all the way from Zvon’s home country, Croatia.  Both nationalities were honoured in the favours- maple syrup to represent the staple breakfast food, and sachets of lavender which grows wild on the coast of Croatia. We also managed to sneak in a little sljivovica-a traditional Croatian schnapps.

Some of our other favourite moments include Robin surprising Zvon by reciting her speech in Croatian, Side One being seriously amazing at keeping the dance floor packed all night, and Kiss My Flash Photography’s fun photo booth that brought out the silly in everyone.

Congrats to the happy couple, and thanks for the fun memories! xo
