Kalli and Brandon were married Knollwood Golf Club Old Barn in Ontario, Canada. Theydidn’t set out to have a themed wedding, but there were a definite butterfly, peacock and nature motifs throughout the day.
“We struggled with deciding on a theme for quite a while”, Kallie began. ” We had so many ideas and things we liked we couldn’t settle on just one so in the end we kind of went with an ‘anti theme’ in a way. We just went with everything we liked. I tried to incorporate as many personal touches as possible instead of focusing on a particular theme.”
If I’m completely honest, butterfly themed wedding ‘stuff’ has been getting a bad rep for years. I’m thinking putrid paper escort card cut-outs that you hang on your wine glass (why?!), table confetti and budget wedding invitations in an assortment of sickly sweet colours… But Irma & Gediminas’ butterfly themed wedding is nothing like any of that. In fact they took butterfly overload and make it damn cool again. For starters, Irma’s dress by Agne Kuzmickaite is astoundingly beautiful. She even had a short version made for dancing late into the night and a cute matching outfit for her daughter.
The Lithuanian couple were married at Lithuanian Martyrs Church in Berciunai country. The reception was held at Bistrampolis Manor. “We had a civil marriage a couple years ago so we’ve technically been married for a while”, writes the bride, “but being party people we decided to arrange a big celebration for our relatives and friends. The whole wedding theme was based around my dress. When we began planning this party, I saw my dress on TV and knew I had to have it. It was an impulse buy, but became the whole focus of the entire theme, which we called ‘crazy dark butterflies’.”
