Niagara Wedding Planner
Allie & Jon's Honsberger Estate Winery Wedding
Allie and Jon live in Toronto but picked Honsberger as their Wedding Venue because it had a quaint, hometown, nostalgic feeling as Allie grew up in Port Dalhousie down the road from Jordan. It felt very homey but also gave non-Niagara people a chance to have the winery experience and eat quality in-season local ingredients.
Their wine cork guest book – which is something that Allie and Jon love doing when they share a bottle of wine (e.g. write the date, celebration, and who it’s with on it) as a memory of time shared together so they wanted to do that with guests rather than a traditional book
Sophie was their Pug of Honour… It was important for Allie to have her there with her crown of flowers. Allie loves Pugs and in lieu of favours… a donation was made to Pugalug Pug Rescue in Toronto.
They tried to make it a personal experience for their guests. They really tried to weave their families and friends into the experience with personal touches like the photos of our family members and loved ones (passed and present) hanging on the pews as markers and the seating chart with friends faces rather than listing their names.
Allie used her grandpas bowtie box as the Ring Bearer’s ring box
Their kissing game was a bottle of tequila set up at the head table… a guest had to come up to take a shot and make Allie and Jon kiss… so many people took shots that the bottle ran out within a half hour. We had to replace the empty tequila bottle with a bottle of Jack Daniels so guests could keep the shots going!
They didn’t want a traditional Wedding Cake… so they had a very delicious cake made of Donuts! Yum!
Allie and Jon wanted to go with Silver as their accent metallic as opposed to the Gold typically seen at Honsberger. They rented silver chiavari chairs and silver beaded glass chargers. They made silver table numbers and had a silver and crystal chandelier hanging above the head table. Peonies are her favourite flower and she wanted to be overload with them! The Silver, blush and ivory colour palette really helped soften the inside of the Honsberger Barn.
