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 […]

Row, Row, Row Your Boat

We did a blowout wedding last summer in cottage country at a beautiful, lakefront property. Our bride and groom got married on the boathouse deck and as the ceremony was drawing to a close, the massive Wenonah II pulled up at the dock below to whisk all the guests off for a 2-hour cocktail cruise around the lake. We brainstormed […]

For invitations and subsequent menus, programs, place […]

Back to the Barn

A few years ago, we worked on the amazing wedding of Kaleigh and Iain that took place at the family farm about 90 km from Toronto. The jaw-dropping ceremony took place at 4:30 in the afternoon, just as the fading light was streaming in through the slats in the side of the barn. Magic. So when Kaleigh’s sister got married […]

Table For 100

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 […]
