Total Wedding Awesomeness

Yes, I realize that Awesomeness probably isn’t a word, but that’s ok.  I kind of feel like it is the best way to describe how I spent my Saturday this past weekend!

I was lucky enough to spend the day with The Wedding Ring at their booth at the Total Wedding Show at the International Centre in Mississaugua, Ontario.  (If you aren’t familiar with The Wedding Ring, you should check out their site here -> The Wedding Ring).  They feature all local vendors on their website, have an online community to chat with other brides, publish a magazine twice a year, and are really an all around fabulous group!  I used their site when I was getting married and researching vendors and I just kinda stayed in touch 😉

Here’s a photo of the booth before the show started –

Yep, it’s called the Banga Booth!  Photo booths are SO much fun…I’m pretty sure that I can speak for everyone at the Wedding Ring booth (and the brides and grooms who took advantage!) that it added quite a bit of fun to our day!

And this is what you get after you take your pictures….an awesome memory to take home.

Obviously I was caught off guard a couple of times as you can see above…haha!  It was still fun!

Of course you can’t be at a bridal show without seeing some amazing dresses….and this one was my favourites.  🙂

Of course I couldn’t resist taking a picture of the kids and dog on the cat walk!!!!!!  LOVED THIS PART!

It was definitely an amazing day…although I think I could have done without the Violin version of Gangnam Style 5000 times!!!

Hahaha!

Have a fabulous day!!!!!!  xoxoxox

p.s. – Don’t forget to check out the Wedding Ring!!!!!

Rain, rain, don’t go away quite yet……

Sounds odd to say, right? Especially on your wedding day?

The thing is that if you have a super fabulous photographer, then you are in luck. Yes, I know getting wet can be a little frustrating when you’re hair is done, make up is done, and you’re probably wearing the most beautiful gown you’ll wear in your life. The fact is that the memories you can capture with a little rain are phenomenal.

Take these photos for example ->;;;

Are you in love with the colourful umbrellas as much as I am?

Photographers are like artists…teditions the best lighting to take your pictures in and can edit your photos to create the most amazing memories of your wedding day!

And if you’re a prepared bride, you may end up with some pictures of matching rain boots, although mis-matched is more fun in my humble opinion!!!!!

I hope I haven’t overwhelmed you with pictures, but I can’t get enough of wedding day shots with rain.

Have a fabulous day! (even though it’s miserable out!!)

Real Wedding – Matt and Allie

Happy Wedding Wednesday!!!!

So, I posted a little sneak peek on Friday about Matt and Allie’s wedding and I was supposed to post this Monday!  Things were just a little crazy and I am late (TERRIBLE ME!).  I am terribly excited about this one though.  I loved working with Allie and her mom and I feel extremely lucky to have played a small part in her day!

Her ceremony and reception were both held on her parents property in Listowel, Ontario.  Here is a picture of the gorgeous bride and her handsome groom.

Allie wanted her guests to have fan programs, which were designed to match her invitations with the pink and damask design.  Love this picture of the bride and groom during the ceremony in the background!

This is by far my favourite picture of the bride and groom.  Maybe it’s the awesome truck they’re sitting on, maybe it’s the fact that I can see Allie’s amazing shoes in this picture, either way I LOVE IT!

All of Allie’s decor was designed to match her damask and pink theme.  When we first met, she had a vision for all of her stationery, which I was able to pull into all of her stationery….from the programs, to the signs for the candy bar, barrel of water bottles, and flip flop barrel(not pictured), to the thank you tags which sat on the rim of the wine glass favours at each guests seat.  One of my personal favourites was the seating chart, which Allie asked me to make round (like the tables) to be mounted on the antique mirror below.

***Don’t you just LOVE the lounge area???????

Here are a few of the bridal party…don’t you love the vintage chic feel of this whole wedding?????

This candy bar is definitely something after my own heart….think jelly bellies, candy floss sweet whirls, cherry rock candy, chocolate hearts.  Well, you get the picture!

Hope you’re having a fabulous Wednesday!

A little love for your bridesmaids…..

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life.  And let’s face it, your bridesmaids probably did a few things along the wedding planning journey (and most of your life) to make your day perfect so why not show them a little love on your wedding day?

You’ve probably known these girls forever and what better way to recognize your fabulous friends than to tell your guests a little bit about them.  You can write about some of their favourite things, how you two met, your favourite memory from childhood, or add a funny story;  just share some love and tell your guests a little more about the most important people in your life.

The best thing about these?  They will go with any decor.  Just have fun with it!
