The Reception | As guests made their way past a warm fire lit in the foyer of the reception hall, a live violinist greeted them for cocktail hour. Among other delicacies, an oyster bar and signature drink were on the menu. Soothing saxophone music played during dinner; Raquel and Steven shared their first dance to Florence and the Machine’s “Stand by Me”; and a bongo player provided upbeat entertainment on the dance floor. One of the most emotional moments of the night for Raquel was the father-daughter dance. The Decor | The vision for Raquel and Steven’s theme was an enchanted winter palace with a palette of white, grey and silver. To give the effect of ice were silver chargers and mirror table numbers. At each of the tables, large crystal candelabra were topped with lush white flowers and hints of greenery as well as white Louis XVI chairs from Detailz Couture Event Rentals. The head table—framed by two orchid arrangements cascading with votive candles—was made perfect with a white love seat and romantic display of the five-tier cake made with silver filigree detailing. In lieu of favours, guests made donations to cancer research in memory of Steven’s mother.
