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 […]

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 […]

99 Bottles of Veuve on the Dock

At our wedding this past weekend in Muskoka, 170 guests consumed 126 bottles of Veuve Clicquot… that has to be some kind of record, doesn’t it? Fantastique!

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 […]

Canon Theatre Transformation

When the lovely, talented and funny Bruce Patterson of Cloud Nine Creative suggested doing a time lapse for a wedding we did together back in March, I got so excited. We do a lot of ‘transforming’ of spaces at SpectacularSpectacular and I have always wanted to film the process, because our clients tend to turn up when it’s all ready […]

Table For 100

Once upon a time, we had a very unusual bride and groom who came to us with a most unique vision: “We want a single table for all of our guests to dine at and we want it to look like something out of a old Flemish painting; dripping over with oysters, pearls, candles and ripe fruit and flowers.” We […]

And a Cherry on Top!

The Question: How to compete with the show-stopping cheese “cake” that Chef Mark McEwan created for our bride’s sister’s wedding, 18 months before. The Challenge: Our bride is diabetic, so a fancy, traditional wedding cake was out of the question. Plus, we were at the same venue (the family farm) with many of the same guests in attendance — we […]
