Alex and Ethan celebrated their nuptials in a posh wedding that took place on the bride’s grandparents’ stunning Art Deco home. The venue, with its limestone walls and lush green manicured gardens, was the perfect setting for the elegant soirée in which close friends and family gathered to celebrate the couple.
Alex wore an exclusive custom LPG gown, made in collaboration with Toronto retailer, Powder Bride. The formfitting gown is covered in hand-knotted feathers and hand beading, creating an opulent, ultra modern bridal look.

Can you share your proposal story?
He proposed on New Year’s Eve day, at my grandparent’s house, where we got married, while we were playing fetch with our dog. He threw her a tennis ball and on the tennis ball it said “Will you marry me?” When I turned around he was down on one knee with the ring in his hand. It was super magical and it started to snow right at that moment.
Tell us about your wedding venue and theme.
The wedding was at my grandparents’ house as well. We actually got married on their anniversary which was super special. The house is all limestone and Art Deco with black and gold iron accents. For the decor/theme, I wanted to complement the architecture of the home and look almost like an extension of the home.
I loved every aspect of wedding planning, except for COVID! I had always had a very clear vision about what I wanted to look like and what I wanted to wear.
What was the process of buying your LPG dress like?
I went to Power Bride with a photo of a dress that I saw on a model at Cannes. There was nothing on the market like it and Adriana, the owner of Powder, said that Lee Grebenau was the only designer that could bring my vision to life. I had always loved the brand so I was very excited when she suggested Lee as the designer! I tried on a few dresses for measurements and basic silhouettes and then let the LPG team bring my vision to life! I had an idea of what to expect, but it was not until 10 months later, when the dress arrived, that I actually saw it for the first time. It was more perfect than I could have ever imagined.
What’s your favorite memory of your wedding?
The entire night. I can’t just pick one, but being surrounded by the people we love most in the world was so special. Thank you to the LPG team for making my dreams come to life! I wish I could wear my dress every day!!
Congratulation, Alex and Ethan!
