Real Wedding ♥ Trudy & Matt {October 2013}

When we met Trudy & Matt, instantly we knew that working with them would be a fun experience!  "Clicking" with clients is such an awesome feeling.

Right from the start we were so impressed with how organized the bride was!  So awesome!  My job as Wedding Day Coordinator became just a bit easier :)  Aside from a few details.. we were pretty much on track for a wonderful celebration.

Come the day of the wedding... Trudy looked ah-mazing! ♥ Her gown... stunning!  Fit her like a glove!  Matt .... you looked handsome too ;)

Set at the beautiful Pines event space in Cambridge Ontario... Trudy & Matt tied the knot!

A fun-filled reception followed with group singing and impromptu poetry!  Loved it!

Take a look at the images taken by the talented photographers at Spirits Intrigued Photography.

The Vintage Tannery Wedding - Heidi & Chris get married!

~ May 14, 2011 ~

At the quaint & rustic Grist Mill in Waterloo Park, Heidi & Chris began their beautiful wedding celebration, surrounded by their family and a few friends.  It didn't matter that the rain was pretty much non-stop throughout the day.......... it didn't put a damper on a single thing!


They were an absolutely fabulous couple to work with!  Heidi's unique, vintage taste made the day so much more memorable!  Talking with Chris during the planning process it was obvious to see, that he couldn't wait to marry this girl!  

I had the pleasure of working with Taylor Jackson Photography as well as Brian Wiebe Photography!  Talent, talent, talent!!!  

Great music, great food, delicious dessert... what more could you ask for!!  

Stay tuned for images from the pros!

The Royal Wedding - A New Age of Royals

It's been a busy couple weeks!  The anticipation of those Royal Wedding photos had everyone in the wedding industry on the edge of their seats!  Myself included!

What an absolutely fabulous day!  The perfect end to the fairytale. Well, really it's the beginning isn't it! Prince William and Kate Middleton, known from now on as the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge, were a picture of poise and, well,...Royalty!

Prince William and Catherine Middleton exchanged vows on Friday April 29, 2011 at Westminster Abbey in London England, with billions watching.  Myself included!  Up in the wee hours of the morning with my daughter, we watched a prince & princess begin their lives together.  I hope that she will remember this moment with me as she grows up.  

We have all watched Prince William grow up right in front of our eyes.  All of us can see the kind of man that he has become and we can also see how much he is like his mother.  I became emotional as the car taking Prince William and his brother Prince Harry was heading to the Abbey.  All I could think of was how much Diana is being missed on this special day.  She would have been so proud.

Enduring their own ups and downs throughout their relationship, William and Kate knew they were perfect for each other....they fell in love.  What could be more romantic?    

Here are some images from the day that will inspire many modern couples in planning their wedding day.   Stay tuned for blogs on the "details" from the wedding of the century!

In the words of a timeless princess ...

.... "so this is love..."


~  Happy Planning! and remember.... Fairytales do come true. ~

Royal Wedding Countdown!!!!


Everything is about the Royal Wedding!!!  I love it!

William & Kate have captured the hearts and attention of so many people and they will all be watching come Friday as they begin their journey together.  

Second in line to the throne - Prince William has grown up in the public eye and now will be moving on to the next stage of his life in the same fashion.

Which wedding designer Kate chose to create her gown will be a focal point for many women!  Including me!

The "Princess -to-be's" fashion sense has created a following of sorts... for example her blue Issa dress in which she announced her engagement to Prince William, sold out within hours of the images being released!  Wow!  


I know where I will be come Friday morning - do you?  If you are still looking for someplace to enjoy the wedding of the century, check out the following for some options!

Happily Ever After

Every wedding has a unique story to go with it.  Nuptuals are made that much more special when the couple has made a long and painful journey to get to the altar.  Brings new meaning to the words "in sickness and in health".

From one of my fave Wedding Blogs, Style Me Pretty, this story out of New Jersey really pulled at the heart strings.   

An inspiring story of true love, this couple has overcome so much to be with each other.   Susan & Todd were finally married under a chuppah elegantly decorated with candles and crystals.

Be sure to click this link to see more of Susan & Todd's special wedding day.  

Also have a peek at the amazing videography work of Fiore Films.  They have captured this couple's story so perfectly!

RSVP to the Party!

Last month I had the pleasure of meeting newly engaged couple Cheryl & Jared. From this one meeting...I quickly found out that these two know how to have fun!

Their big day is going to be nothing but that!

Surrounded by lots of friends and family, Cheryl & Jared will be exchanging their "I Do's" at The Concordia Club in Kitchener, Ontario.

Shades of purple & black along with the couple's love of music, will be the backdrop for this special day.

Excited to be a part of this!   Here is a little inspiration for this special day!
