Colourful Boho Wedding - Sneak Peeks C+H

The day after I got married, I got a call for wedding planning for the exact venue I got married in. I was actually on a mini-honeymoon but they sounded really cool so I was excited! Before we even had the chance to meet, Chelsey and Holden booked me while being at home in Nunavut. When I finally got to meet them in person, they wore clothes as if they were going hiking... and I realized these two were not only in love but an adventurous pair. The bride mentioned since the wedding was going to land on Cinco de Mayo, perhaps a colourful wedding would be fun but changed her mind to appease the idea of a typical formal wedding colour palette of blush, gold, ivory... but after meeting them, I knew a colourful, whimsical wedding would be perfect for them! I went ahead and put together a colourful mood board for them anyway and they loved it! 

This wedding was just so much fun to plan - all the colours, traditional Jewish components, the band, the inflatable duck (although this did cause me a little bit of stress seeing the bride so high up in the air with heels on)! 

Thank you so much to this couple for being beyond trusting of me to be able to do what I do best!

City Rustic Wedding at Malaparte

Shannon & Matthew's Beautiful Rooftop Wedding

Colour palette: Jade green, navy blue, grey, white & gold
Style: Modern & rustic


After meeting, Shannon and Matthew, I knew I would have fun planning their big day with them! Shannon was meticulously organized and knew exactly what she wanted but such a dream to work with. She wanted to bring a little countryside styling to the urban setting of their rooftop wedding. We made sure to utilized all the beautiful spaces the guests got to explore from the bright lobby where we set up a selfie backdrop with laser-cut names of the couple, the stunning white rooftop tent ceremony, the outdoor elevated cocktail area and the sleek sloped ceilings of the main reception room.

We added the rustic flair to the trailing ribbon on the bouquets, the grey textured linens, the wood box centrepiece containers, the harvest wood chairs, garlands on the guest tables, the dessert station decor, the succulent favours and the home-made cookie favours. 

You could see how Toronto's modernity was infused into the wedding as well from the cocktail furniture, the gold cutlery, modern letterpress invitations, the immaculate food and the view from Malaparte's rooftop of King Street West. 

One of my favourite details was the fact that the bride, Shannon, actually made the entire dessert table and the cookie desserts.. that didn't last past salads!

Thank you for trusting me on your wedding day and I wish you both all the best!

Intimate Chapel Wedding at The Doctor's House - D&K

After imagining her big day for many years and having planned her engagement party (that we planned) years prior, it was finally the day!

The bride, Daniela, had always imagined a romantic intimate wedding... so that's exactly what she got! With a mixture of lots of candles, gold, grey and blush, D&K's wedding day was nothing short of beautiful. When we went out to see the Doctor's House together, Daniela fell in love with the rustic charm, the vaulted ceilings, the lush gardens, the intimate feeling and the candle-lit chapel with the big bell you rung when you got married.

On the big day, the groom got ready with his brothers and the bride with her best friends. I had previously met the bride through a mutual friend but also as a bridesmaid at her bridemaids' wedding the year prior so it was nice to see so many familiar faces. Daniela's wedding gown not only fit her like the glove but fit the day just perfectly - a little glam, sexy, vintage and romantic. The bride asked for lots of greenery which she definitely got in all the bouquets and the stunning centrepieces by Minim Designs. 

We added extra flickering candles to the already stunning chapel (that has no electricity, just the existing candles) and some lush florals. For the reception space, we filled the space with lots of candles to set the ambiance and florals cascading around the couple at their sweetheart table. The couple's table was draped in a flowy transparent linen and the grey linen with asymmetrical florals and decor. The bride filled up with tears when she saw how her magical day came together.

The reception began with the couple coming in to Arabic drummers and the night ended with everyone dancing around the newlyweds! Thank you to everyone that made this day so special for the bride and groom.

Sneak Peeks from Grace & Trevor's Stunning Fall Wedding!

My favourite season for so many reasons... fall! I am always so inspired by the changing colours but for this beautiful fall wedding, I was so inspired by the warm red of the bride's hair! I decided to get further inspiration from the venue, Old Mill, for its vintage feel so we combined ivory, copper, gold and a bunch of teal for Grace & Trevor's Big Day. We mixed and matched the metallics with rose gold cutlery, hammered copper chargers, gold frames and gold votives. The florist personally foraged for the turning leaves to incorporate in to the ultra-romantic floral design. Thank you to everyone that brought this wedding together!

Check out the images by Jacqueline James Photography so all the lovely photos.. definitely a favourite in 2017!
