What an amazing wedding season 2018 was! We met some beautiful couples and stayed super busy... that is a GOOD combination!
Here is a small glimpse into a stunning August wedding. The bride wanted an elegant and romantic reception set-up. Beautiful fresh greenery and tons of candlelight made it possible.
Take a look at this stunning couple and day!

I had the pleasure of working with Annie & Daniel to plan their beautiful July wedding at Archeo in the Distillery District.
What could be more beautiful than rustic wood with a coral, gold and white palette?! It was a dream wedding and the couple was thrilled with the final look. Take a peak at this beautiful day!

Boy am I behind on BLOGS! Life has been crazy with a new baby and a big move, so blogging fell behind. But we've still been working away planning beautiful events through it all!
I know it’s snowing outside but I want to take you back to the summer!
Meet Jennifer & Matthew.
This sweet couple had been together
almost a decade before saying 'I do!"
and everyone was so thrilled for them!
I had the honour of planning and coordinating their special day.
They had a beautiful vintage style wedding with a blush pink, pearl and gold palette. Floral centerpieces boasted full hydrangea, roses and babies breath in vintage (read: bride went to antique stores!) mason jars. They also LOVE Coke! So of course, it was given away in the classic Coca Cola bottles to each guest.
Here is a small look at their beautiful day!

What can I say about this beautiful couple? We journeyed for a year planning their special day, and every detail came to life as we had all dreamed!
Nicole & Allan had a black tie formal affair. This summer wedding showcased beautiful full hydrangea arrangements, with champagne and purple accents covering the venues. From the invitations to the favours, their vision of elegance was found in every single detail, and it was my pleasure to make it come to life!
Here is what Nicole had to say, which really touched my heart!
"I'll never be able to explain how important Marielle was for me on the wedding day and the entire year of planning leading up to it. She was one of the main reasons I came out in one piece. She worked around my crazy schedule, kept me calm when I would get overwhelmed and helped me articulate what I liked and didn't like. I valued her opinion and realized early on she had impeccable taste and an attention to detail that is second to none...
...I got to spend the day having fun and enjoying myself. I absolutely love her for that. There are so many things she did that went above and beyond what I thought a wedding planner to be. She skyped me in on an appointment with the decorator so I could see centrepieces and tables when I wasn't able to attend at the last minute. She patiently supported me when I changed the colours of the wedding over and over again and when I couldn't decide on paper for the invitations until the very last minute. And as I sat in the limo right before the ceremony she was the one I trusted to secure my veil and touch up my make up because I knew she cared just as much as I did about my day being perfect. Without her I wouldn't have been able to plan my dream wedding, and what I realize now and remember most, is how much fun she made it for me and how reassuring it was knowing she was in it with me, making it special and perfect. I can't thank her enough and just hope she'll still be planning weddings when my daughters are ready. :) "
Enjoy some beautiful pictures from this special day:
On a beautiful June day, Mandy married the man of her dreams! I had the privilege of getting her and her family ready for the big day!
The Simpson ladies love dramatic, smokey makeup that accentuate their already beautiful features. Here are a few pictures of my work on that special day.
