A Night at The Museum

Another oldie but goodie — it’s beyond high time for me to share some of the glorious details from Shelby and Graeme’s wedding, held at the Royal Ontario Museum (affectionately known as The ROM) one beautiful day in June… Regrettably, this tends to be a habit with me: we are so busy planning and executing events all the time that […]


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 […]


Dessert Fit for a Princess

Since the Royal Wedding is just around the corner, I thought I would publish a post about a wedding we did last year. It was the first time, believe it or not, that we were asked to create a Fairy Tale Wedding for a bride-to-be. She had found her Prince Charming, the castle was booked and now it was up […]


New Website Photos: A Sneak Peek

Embarrassingly, it’s been almost 2 years since we’ve updated the photos on our website. Alas, it isn’t for a lack of fabulous weddings, parties or celebrations… it’s simply about finding the time to actually make it happen! Our webmaster guru, Todd, is in the process of updating our pictures literally as I type; but it never goes quite as quickly […]


Perfectly Pressed

I’ve been lucky to work with some pretty special vendors over the course of my career and thought it was high time to dedicate a post to two of my favourite people of all: stationers Julie Gibb and Christian Morrison, the husband and wife team that own Pantry Press, purveyors of fine letterpress. For invitations and subsequent menus, programs, place […]


La Vita e Bella

Last year, we had the pleasure of coordinating the wedding for our Sunniest Bride Ever (who also happened to have one of the best “how did you meet each other?” stories we’ve heard): She and her fiancé literally bumped into each other on a street corner. As in, bam! When he asked why she was so happy, given that he’d […]


Prest-O, Change-O

At every event we help organize, we always try to make our designs do double-duty — we can’t help it; at the end of the day, we’re practical girls! With this very purple wedding we did last year, we envisioned an escort card table that would turn into a late night dessert station as the evening progressed. Lidia Tacconelli and […]


Peacock, Chartreuse and Coral at the RCM

Nothing can influence the mood of a party like a burst of cheery colours as guests first enter a space. That was exactly the case for an engagement party we did at the Royal Conservatory of Music: it was a cold, typically grey November day in Toronto and the bright and unusual pairing of peacock & chartreuse greens with a […]


The Single-Flower Bouquet

The Local Favourite: The Late-Spring/Early-Summer Peony The-a-Little-More-Exotic: Gloriosa Lily The Classic: Phalaeonopsis Orchid There is something so simple yet impactful about choosing a single flower and using it over and over again in your bouquet. Here we’ve shown some of our favourites… all designed by the wonderful Bill Fulghum, formerly of Church Street Flowers and now of William Fulghum Designs. […]


Back Door Bride

In the spirit of showing you behind-the-scenes at events we’ve done, these fun photos were taken at a wedding we did at The Carlu, Toronto’s finest example of the Art Moderne style of architecture and design. The Carlu is a sleek, sophisticated and extremely well-run venue, but a tough place to sneak a bride into without guests seeing her before […]
