"Spring Into Planning!"

As exciting as it is to have the beautiful weather finally making an appearance, it is even MORE exciting to get into the mood of planning your special day!

Amongst all of the other important things that need to be decided between you and your beloved, choosing colour themes are a great way to start! If you have a Spring wedding planned or have a few weddings to attend in the upcoming months, you can be sure that these are the colours you will be seeing for Spring 2014!

Pastels like pale peach, radiant orchid and cherry blossom pink seem to be a trend we are seeing this Spring because of their light and fresh feel…who said only the weather had to be bright and blossoming?!

      

These beautiful colours not only mirror the beautiful outdoors in its process of blooming but it also helps us get back into the mood of designing your exceptional day!

When you are choosing between these lovely Spring colours, step out of your comfort zone and try pairing them with charming soft shimmers of silver or gold! The twinkling aspect of these metallic colours will not only add a variety of colour to balance out the theme but it will also help the focus colour POP!

But remember everyone….... moderation is KEY! Too much of one colour can overthrow the theme and make things feel too overwhelming!  Make sure to ask for help if you are unsure about how much colour or sparkle to add to your stunning setting so you can ensure that your day is as perfect as you have always imagined!


Above all, have fun with it!  These colours should reflect your dream day and make you feel just as happy as we are about this beautiful Spring weather letting love be in the air!

Until next time!

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!

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! 

Enjoy!
