Private Niagara Estate Wedding from Distinct Occasions

When lovely Crystal from Distinct Occasions sent me the submission details for this insanely gorgeous wedding, she was kind enough to offer some insight into the emotion behind the spectacular event. Because of this, I wasn't planning on writing anything to accompany this post, but I have to point out that it's the clear intent, attention to detail, and visible heart that makes this an obvious Distinct Occasions wedding. Crystal and her team have a remarkable way of customizing a wedding to reflect the love and personalities of their couple, and this batch of heart-filled eye-candy is no exception.

I hope you all enjoy the details of this sweet day, which was beautifully captured by lifeimages, as much as I do, and if you're planning to tie the knot in a meaningful, personal way, set up an appointment with Crystal at her new Niagara office! 

From Crystal:

No wedding is without it's challenges and when you choose to host a whirlwind wedding on your lakefront private estate in Niagara - the challenges get even more complicated. Blustering wind, threat of rain (which never happened thankfully!), a full 10 days worth of setup and teardown, over 50 vendors' involvement, a palette of peach and cream, and one very excited couple and their family = magic.

Jennifer & John wed on Saturday, July 25, 2015 at Star of the Sea church in St. Catharines before celebrating the night away in their custom wedding tent beside the lake in Beamsville. No detail was left to chance from a custom lace gown, personalized valet service, sumptuous cuisine, a family winemaker's wine choices, luxe draping, a plethora of peach candles, fresh ripe Niagara peaches, a towering confectionary wedding cake, a delectable sweet table, a band to rock the dance floor which was peach and glitter, and a late night food truck if guests could find even a spare inch of space.

At the heart, this wedding was all about family in Niagara, being who they are, doing what they do and sharing in their passions and loves with their guests.
