Alison and Steve’s romantic wedding was held at the Spice Factory in Hamilton, and perfectly planned by Shaw Events. Exposed brick, and twinkle lights created a warm romantic feel, and French inspired tables with fresh blush flowers in aged gold vases were the centrepieces. 

The couple wed under a soft, fabric covered arbour flanked by lush blush pink florals. Custom drinks were made to celebrate the happy couple, and the couple’s favourite dishes were served. The finishing touch for this wedding was the Polaroid photo booth that Steve’s father made to  capture candid and joyous moments among guests. 

Alison was radiating in her vintage inspired two-piece tulle and ribbon skirt with elegant bodice, and her beautiful bouquet consisted of peonies, poppies, roses, greenery and more. Bridesmaids wore steel blue Mumu gowns that coordinated with the groomsmen navy blue suits. Steve, who serves in the Royal Canadian Navy on Canada’s East coast, was all smiles for his blushing bride.
