{Real Wedding Story} Simple yet elegant in Woodstock | Leslie & Kyle

BRIDE & GROOM: Leslie & Kyle Difazio

WEDDING DATE: September 22nd, 2018

LOCATION: Craigowan Golf Course (♥) (craigowan.com) Woodstock, ON “From the moment we toured the venue and met with Deb, the Director of Hospitality at the course, we knew it was the perfect fit! We wanted an all-in-one location for both our ceremony and reception. Craigowan was perfect for this! Their outdoor wedding ceremony location is beautiful and unique with tiered seating and the reception hall and patio are gorgeous with perfect views of the golf course.” – L

PHOTOGRAPHY: Kelly Taylor – The Bridal Lounge Photography (thebridallounge.ca) Ingersoll, ON “Kelly was absolutely amazing! She came via recommendations from colleagues at work. She was most definitely the perfect fit for us. We met early on in our engagement and I didn’t look any further! From her website and Instagram, I loved her style of very natural and not overly edited. She was so easy to work with and helped to keep us all on schedule. I knew I wanted to do pictures not just at the golf course and she found the location downtown which are some of our favourite shots.” – L

THEME: “We never really named our theme but we wanted something modern, with clean lines that we would look back on and always love. I love neutral colours which is why we had lots of white, grey and greenery. We carried out the same white with greenery theme in our invites, our wedding website, all the stationary the day of and throughout the décor. I wanted things to be simple, yet elegant.” – L

# GUESTS: 155

BUDGET: $35,000

FLOWERS: The Flower Fountain (theflowerfountain.com) Aylmer, ON “Nancy’s style is so modern and beautiful. There would be no one else I would want to do our flowers. She created all the beautiful bouquets,  boutonnieres and all the florals for the décor. She also delivered and set everything up at the venue.” – L

DÉCOR & STATIONERY: Unmistakably You (unmistakablyyou.com) London, ON “Amy was awesome to work with. She designed everything from our invites to our day-of stationery. She also created the backdrop frame with our initials hanging, which then served as a photo op during the dance. We loved it!” – L

ADVICE, ONE COUPLE TO ANOTHER: “We both feel that probably one of the best decisions we made about our wedding was our first look! It allowed us to spend so much more time together on our wedding day! We completed all of our pictures before the ceremony. This then allowed us to enjoy our meal, dance and spend time with our guests throughout the evening. However, know that whatever you choose to do, will be perfect for you and your soon-to-be spouse!” L&K
