These Madsen’s Greenhouse Wedding Photos Put Fairy Tales and DIY in Play
Summer and botanical theme seem to go hand in hand. For those attracted to an out-of-city escape for their big day, the Madsen’s Greenhouse Wedding at Newmarket is an easy consideration.
Liz, a Toronto Entrepreneur and founder of The Ex Oh, and Carlo, a Mobile Mortgage Specialist are all about the artistic touches and have put a lot of thought and love behind every detail. Their entire wedding theme is rustic and is set in a beautiful greenhouse garden. From the wooden signing board to the wine barrels engraved with their names and tiny herb plants as a gift for guests to walk away with, it is obvious to see the love that went into making this day special.
The bride and groom’s first reveal is in the backyard of Carlo’s home, which is as vast and wonderfully designed as any parks in Toronto! The tasteful garden, backdropped by a beautiful stone landscaping and waterfall easily became the center of our portrait sessions. The bride tastefully equipped her wedding party with flower crowns and blush themed dresses. Gotta love the ethereal eucalyptus look!
Outdoor Wedding Ceremony at Madsen’s Greenhouse
Their sweet outdoor ceremony is decked with white chairs and a wooden altar. The attention grabber is the wine barrel right by the altar which had their engravings. There are also crates with rose petals in paper cones and a beautiful DIY sign leading guests in as well as a wooden skid with a DIY itinerary for the night. The bright and airy tent for the reception is filled with leafy greens, florals, and whimsical lights, creating beautifully diffused natural light during the daytime and soft romantic glows in the evening.
Almost all of the decor is DIY and they all fit in with a rustic theme perfectly. Inside the venue at the entrance is where the most DIY’ing is. There is a picture table with photos of both families and their wedding over the years, a guest signing board, a seating chart made by the father of the bride. Did I mention a ladder with all the potted plants as wedding favors? They are planted from seeds – how brilliant!
Their stunning florals by Blooming Wellies Flowers add so much to the already beautiful greenhouse venue. Shades of blush, white and pink with pops of bright pink and fuschia can be found behind the head table, on signage, on each lantern, and on the beautiful cake by Sammy Cakes as well.
Madsen’s Greenhouse Wedding Reception and Dances
The highlight of this set is probably the romantic evening dance under the starry string lights. There are not many other occasions as joyful as being surrounded by the happy cheers of people important to you. The faint and magical lights under the ceiling of the greenhouse created these beautiful fairytale moments, though can be challenging for photography… just kidding, not with our discrete external lighting set up! Hope you enjoyed this set as much as we did.
