REAL WEDDING: Edith & Zachary

Seeing the Willowdale grounds covered in snow adds an element of awe and intrigue that only gets more beautiful as the night goes on and the twinkle lights glow on the fallen snow. Edith & Zachary tied the knot inside the estate, but were surrounded by the snow covered grounds and the unique historical details Willowdale has to offer.

Edith and her bridesmaids prepared for the day in our Wedding Suite which offers a large open space with lots of natural lighting and is the perfect spot for hair, makeup and ensembles! Her detailed hair clip of pearls and ivory wedding shoes covered in rhinestones were a perfect choice for the neutral palette they used in many details of their day.

Zachary and his groomsmen were just down the hall getting ready in the Equestrian Lounge. Their wardrobe choice was a classic three-piece grey suit and dark brown leather Oxfords.
