Brunch Wedding with Disco Balls, DIY Décor & References to Their Favourite Books, Movies & TV Shows

Basing their decor on a high school dance (think the dance in the gym from the movie Grease), Jacky and Wes wanted to celebrate their big day with their favourite meal – brunch! Surrounded by paper streamers and disco balls, the couple kept a free and fun vibe while partying with the people they love.

The couple had eleven groomsmen and bridesmaids, ensuring their friendship group were all part of their celebration. With an emphasis on having fun, they wanted everyone to feel relaxed and comfortable.

Jacky told us, “We didn’t want to make anyone involved wear a random dress or suit they would never wear again. Everyone picked out what they wanted to wear, as long as it was all black. They could wear any shoes or accessories they wanted.”

Elegant Boozy Brunch Wedding in Toronto

Kira and Stephen opted for a boozy brunch reception, complete with dancing, followed by an after party in a hotel lobby. This couple were the epitome of laid back with their plans, choosing things which made the day enjoyable for everyone rather than sticking to tradition. There was no cake (who needs one when you’ve got so many delicious pastries!?) and the bridesmaid wore whatever they wanted. The groom and his groomsmen opted to match in bright blue suits.

The rooftop terrace at The Fifth Terrace & Grill is where they had both their ceremony and brunch reception. The bride explains, “We wanted to have a laid back wedding where we could focus on having fun and catching up with our favourite friends and family. When we think of long weekends in the summer we think of cottage times in Muskoka, laughing all day in the sun, drinking, dancing and playing lawn games.”

Los Angeles Brunch Wedding with the Bride in a Red Jumpsuit!

When the bride is a literal, bona fide rockstar, you know the wedding’s going to be a corker – and Cato (AKA CATO Sound) and Nick’s wedding definitely did not disappoint. They flipped the status quo with a house party and night out dancing on the Saturday and their ceremony and brunch on the Sunday! Cato’s outfit also ticks every box (“Gotta have pants, gotta have pockets, gotta have a train” she said) as do their incredible photos. Let’s begin, shall we?

“Actually, the inspiration for the wedding came to me in a dream”, began Cato. “I woke Nick up, told him what we were doing, and he liked it so we went back to sleep! At first I thought Pinterest would be helpful – oh how wrong I was! I think its best use would be to show a wedding planner what you are thinking, but I think it distorts expectations and encourages us to overspend on one day of our lives money that could give us more freedom in the years to come!”

“The biggest inspiration for us in reality was our community. From the very start, we knew our joy was only possible with the support of our community, so we wanted our wedding to be about all of us going through life together. We wanted our friends and family to be woven into our wedding in the same way they are woven into our lives, and thus most of our vendors were friends, or are friends now.”

“We held our wedding in reverse, with a Saturday night out dancing at Funky Sole at The Echo in Echo Park, and then a brunch wedding and reception on Sunday,” she continued. Their ceremony was a Reform Jewish ceremony with plenty of character. Their Rabbi, Jim Kaufmann, had them write a story about how they’d got to this point, which he then read in three parts woven into the ceremony.

“By the time we exchanged rings, everyone had relived that journey with us. We were very honest about our partnership and it resonated with our guests.” It was held at The Eveleigh, a restaurant on Sunset Boulevard, and at the suggestion of their wedding planner Taylor from Reidsley they placed their chuppah in the middle of the room so they were surrounded by their family and friends.

They walked out of their ceremony to a mashup of Disarm by The Smashing Pumpkins, Where is My Mind? by The Pixies, and Wake Up by Arcade Fire, arranged by Ro Rowan, their violinist before heading to the chillest, nicest wedding brunch ever.
