The Cake Box - Grand Opening!

Kitchener Wedding PlannerWe are so very happy for our friends over at The Cake Box on the Grand Opening of their new location!  

Style & Elegance had the honour of being invited to the Vendors reception held in the evening on April 21, 2012.   

Having known the owners, Yvonne & Rob, for a number of years now and having The Cake Box be the cake artist of some of my wonderful clients, we can say first hand that we are huge fans of Yvonne's work and trust her with our clients to do a fantastic job. Here are some photos we snapped during our evening at The Cake Box this weekend!

Don't be surprised if you walk away hungry from looking at these visuals! 

Enjoy!

Entertainment was provided by a great up and coming local band... Safe As Houses.

And finally the ribbon cutting ceremony!

Congratulations to The Cake Box on their new home!

One concern we had when we left was....who was going to eat the last one?

 

Enjoy your week everyone!

Roller Coaster Engagement Video

Now more than ever, newly engaged couples are coming up with unique ways to announce their upcoming wedding.
Check out this "Save-the-Date" video that we came across that we think is just an awesome way to announce your special day!!!!


This Roller Coaster Engagement video was shot entirely on the Twister II Roller Coaster at Elitch Gardens in Denver Colorado. The bride and groom sent the link to their friends and family as a "Save the Date" invitation. The bride rode the T2 coaster 7 times and the groom rode it 6 times to capture enough footage to make this video.


Go ahead, Get Creative!!!!
Make your special day memorable!!!

Vintage Inspired Celebration

I had the opportunity to meet with Shelley Inglis of Shell Design Weddings earlier this week.  She's getting married!!!!!!!! 
Now Style & Elegance Wedding and Event Coordination has the honour of being the Lead Planner on her big day!!!! 

Being a Certified Wedding Planner herself, Shelley is already well on her way with regards to the planning, given the short amount of time that she has to work with.  This lady knows what she wants!!!!
This small intimate affair will be celebrated at one of the newer locations in the city of Kitchener...The Tannery District

Having worked at this venue before, I know that it perfectly compliments the style of wedding Shelley & Greg are intending on having.


With her unique Vintage style and Venue, this wedding celebration will prove to be a memorable one!
Going over all the details of her special day, Shelley and I quickly found ourselves on the same page! 

I can't wait to be a part of her celebrations!  Lots and lots of details to take care of......and that is my specialty! 

Congratulations Shelley & Greg!  Looking forward to your big day!

Grand Opening Success!!!

Congratulations Barbara on the successful Grand Opening of Ladybug Bridal and Evening Wear!!!

I just wanted to say thank you to Barb for letting me be a part of her big night!
I met some great people with whom I'll definitely be keeping in
touch with.

My outlook is that if we support each other, our strengths and our dreams........we will all be successful.

Starting a business is no easy feat. Vision and determination have gotten us to where we are today and we can only keep growing. I am in the midst of building my own business and I take pride in my work. I believe that that is one of the most important things in this industry. Without that we can't set ourselves apart from the rest.

Our goal as businesswomen in this industry is to make your dreams come true. At the point you come in contact with us, your wedding day is the most important thought on your mind.

We are here to make those hopes and dreams a reality.

Whether it be Wedding Planning, your Wedding gown, or the makeup you use, we are here for you.

Check out our websites and you may find exactly what you are looking for!!!

Congratulations again Barb on a successful night!!!!!
