Bold and Beautiful at the RCM

It’s always so gratifying to see months and months of planning and dreaming come to life… and even more exciting when it becomes immortalized in print! We were thrilled to see the wedding of Lauren and Jim at the Royal Conservatory of Music appear in the current issue of WedLuxe Magazine, featuring every bold and brave decision our colour-loving clients […]


What is ‘à la Piscine?’

Last month, my sister and I had the privilege of visiting our Auntie Liz at her home in the South of France. It was only 8 days, but my God, we packed a lot into our limited time together. Her house is near St. Tropez, but we also spent a night at the famed Negresco Hotel in Nice and it […]


Lindsay + Jamie: Before and After

We had such great response to our previous ‘Before and After’ post that I thought we should do it again, this time with the wedding of Lindsay and Jamie that was so beautifully captured by Anthony Manieri of 5ive15ifteen Photo Company and gorgeously featured in the Winter/Spring edition of WedLuxe magazine. I’ve started this post with an ‘after’ shot first […]


Lindsay + Jamie: The Lovely Details

We always hope and wish for good weather for ALL our clients, but there are some weddings that just wouldn’t be the same if it rained — and this was one of them. The ceremony spot, quite literally, clings to the bluffs, hundreds of feet above Lake Ontario; there is no other venue quite like it in Toronto. The rain […]


Spring Has Sprung!

Ahhh… the Prima Vera of Spring! There’s nothing quite like it, is there? A season of renewal, hope and happy thoughts of warmer days ahead. We did a rehearsal dinner this past week at Jamie Kennedy at the Gardiner Museum that felt so fresh and spring-y, I just had to post about it; even if all I have at this […]


Natasha and Graeme Get Married

We were thrilled to see the wedding of Natasha and Graeme appear in the  Real Weddings Special Edition  of Weddingbells magazine. The editors captured the fashion focus of this particular wedding beautifully — the only thing not really shown here is how super-stylin’ the guests were too… this was one Seriously Glamorous Group. Every time I thought I’d seen the […]


Before…

I always think it’s fun to show how our events come to life — and this was a biggie, perched high up on a very steep hillside above beautiful Lake Muskoka. The amazing Dennis Large and his crew from Advanced Tent built a level floor that was flush on one end and over 8-feet off the ground on the other… […]


and… After

And here are some of the professional “After” shots in the tent…  No signs of the effort from the previous post that went into making our vision come to life! You can make out the white vinyl underneath the sofas at the front of the tent; it ran along the entire lake side —  the lounge and bar were on […]


Winter Wonderland, Part 1

Well, winter has finally come to Southern Ontario, so I thought it only fitting to have the last post of 2011 be a look back at a gorgeous 3-day winter wedding weekend we planned last April at the Chateau Lake Louise in the middle of Banff National Park. However, this post isn’t about the wedding itself at all, but about […]


Winter Wonderland, Part 2

Another classic Michael Greenberg shot: this is Ian, our bartender, essentially wedged into a snow drift with some snowmen to keep him company. And to think I was worried there might not be any snow left at the beginning of April. Ha! But back to this photo. At first, our guests only were drinking the hot stuff, shown in the […]
