Intimate City Hall wedding inspiration

Jenna Smith of Revel Events, who coordinated this adorable creative shoot, says: “In putting together this photo shoot, we focused on the needs of a couple who want a lovely, intimate wedding without the big price tag. We imagined a bride and groom getting married at City Hall and then sharing a quaint lunch at home with their nearest and dearest. The decor is full of handmade details, lovingly crafted by Natalie Bjordal, that are inexpensive and fairly easy for a savvy couple to create for themselves.”

“We felt that, even as some of the elements of our shoot were not “budget” items—such as the gorgeous Jenny Yoo “Romy” dress that Frocks was generous enough to lend—they would all be re-creatable by a couple looking to save money while retaining the romance and charm of this vignette.”

Gloria Cheung at the Flower Factory ingeniously paired gorgeous flowers with pops of edible colour in the form of tangerines and strawberries to complement her arrangements.

So many cute ideas! Just because you’re having an small City Hall wedding doesn’t mean you can’t add a few pops of bright florals, decor and a table full of sweet pies, right?
