Putting the Fun Back into FUNdraising

Back in November, we planned a cocktail reception for the Lung Cancer Canada annual gala at The Arcadian Loft. Our mandate was to design an evening that was as far-away-as-possible from the typical sit down dinner/rubber chicken affairs that too many gala-goers have to endure. We were also asked to come up with something novel to replace the omnipresent Silent […]


Erin & Robert in WedLuxe Magazine

The latest issue of WedLuxe Magazine has just hit the newsstands and we are so thrilled to finally be able to share this spectacular wedding with the world. Guests were treated to three individually-designed areas in the family’s backyard: the all-white ceremony space where we covered the pool in lucite, followed by the serene cocktail tent, all done in shades […]


Pretty in Pink: Part 2

Here’s a photo of the whole table — it was so long it was almost impossible to get the whole thing in a single frame! You can get a sense of the length of it if I tell you the Pink Rice Krispies Square-Cake (which you can see at the top of the shot) was only half-way down… A close […]


Pretty in Pink: Behind-the Scenes

Being a planner means I can’t leave anything to chance… and to that end, the night before the event, Lisa Phillips and I carted all the loot to the RCM to do a dry run. Here are some of those photos: We started playing with what should go where on the ugly, linen-less tables. Dubble Bubble, Pop Rocks and White […]


Daniela and Marco in WedLuxe Magazine

We are especially proud to have the wedding of Daniela and Marco appear in the pages of WedLuxe Magazine because this particular couple came to us when they fell in love with another wedding we’d organized in that very same magazine! T.H. Jackson Huang of Ikonica, Lidia Tacconelli from Fiori Floral Designs and Julie and Christian from Pantry Press were […]


Daniela and Marco: Some Fun Details

Now that you’ve seen some of the beautiful room shots, we thought you might enjoy seeing some of the details that didn’t make it into the magazine… Because this wedding reception was being held at the Royal Conservatory of Music, we thought we should embrace some of the elements that could be found within the hallowed halls of what is […]


Tulip Fever

So, you may wonder why the title has ‘tulip’ in it, but the photos don’t? That’s because, as any person in the event industry will tell you, working with mother nature can be a very stressful thing… We were given the task of designing a party for a highly sophisticated, highly attuned and self-proclaimed Design Snob. 800 tulips had been […]


The Pictures you Didn’t See…

Many of you have seen the super-stylish wedding that photographer Jackson Huang and his bride Saxon Grimes threw last August when it was featured in WedLuxe magazine. Now it’s time to share some of the ones you didn’t see… No matter how much planning goes into an event, something inevitably goes awry. In this case, the elevator in the building […]
