Intimate Wedding at Oakes Garden Theatre

This intimate Niagara wedding might have a small guest list, but it's big on charm and detail. Coordinated by the lovely Meagan from Weddings Tied With Lace and captured by Jesse James Photography, Kate and Mark tied the knot surrounded by close family and friends and casual, romantic florals by Fleurish Design Studio. Here's what Meagan has to say:   

When Kate first contacted me, I knew right away that she and I were going to get along. She had visions of beautiful linen with swatches of blush, gold and Ivory. She was looking for an outdoor venue somewhere close to the Horseshoe falls. The Oakes Garden Theatre was a perfect fit for her 25 person destination wedding. The Oakes Garden Theatre has a mix of garden, water, and an old brick structure which comes together as an entire venue to create a whimsical, romantic getaway from the busy tourist area in Niagara Falls. Instead of having the reception truly outside, we opted for the Hard Rock Club directly across from the Oakes Garden Theatre because they have two floor to ceiling walls that are actually doors that open up. You get the air and the sunshine as if you are outside, but you're sheltered from all of the elements. The Hard Rock is a really neat venue. It's very structural and almost cold as a room by itself, but once you start adding in the tables, linen, chairs, and other decor the room really transforms into the perfect vision of however you see it. Kate did a lot of DIY decor elements because she loves to craft. She brought these all the way up from Ohio! Fleurish Design Studio did a fantastic job of creating the perfect "hand-made" centerpieces Kate was looking for. She wanted the flowers to look simple, like they were ever so simply arranged as she put them in. In the end, Kate and Mark just wanted their guests to have a blast. By the amount of people dancing and smiling, I can safely say that they did!
