Purple & Orange…the San Francisco Treat!

Monday, August 31st, 2009 | trends, weddings | No Comments

This couple met in San Francisco and later got engaged in San Francisco so they wanted to find a way to incorporate that into their reception. I spent months collecting vintage images of San Francisco landmarks in both colour & B&W which were used for the ceremony programs, menus (4 different images), table numbers (18 different images) and seating chart.
It was a riot of colour…rich shades of purple and oranges…it really made the space come alive.aug-09-1042
I also loved that they received custom bobble heads as a gift and used them as the cake topper. So cute – and was a perfect touch for their character. aug-09-1033The bride called this morning to tell me what an AMAZING time they had…they were the life of the party and assured me this wedding was one for the record books.
Best wishes you guys!

Luscious Lighting, Linens & Lenny Kravitz

Monday, August 24th, 2009 | trends, weddings | No Comments

I worked with this couple since the fall of 2007 – and they were so fun…and crazy…and sweet. They wanted colourful & quirky & unique and their wedding certainly was all of those things.
The groom & groomsmen were all decked out in pale grey 3 pc suits with groovy white shoes and the bridesmaids looked great in their purple bubble dresses with hot orange shoes. I don’t usually comment on a couple’s processional but this was so different I have to mention it…the bridal party went down the aisle to music from Edward Scissorhands..and then the radiant bride made her entrance to Lady by Lenny Kravitz…it was perfect! You gotta love a bride who can pull off a formal gown & Lenny…


Their reception was a riot of colour…rich jewel tones…fuchsias, deep purples & rich teals…

The bride sent me this email a couple of days later:



You guys rock too!!! :)

Captivating Candy Confection in Kananaskis

Thursday, August 13th, 2009 | trends, weddings | No Comments

We absolutely LOVED how this ballroom turned out…it was truly scrumptious. The tables were colour blocked – soft pinks, soft lavenders and soft greens…everything was very soft & ethereal and the overal effect was a gorgeous garden fete brought indoors.
During the ceremony several dear congregated right behind the couple…it was so sweet…and seems like a very good omen!aug-09-501
The cake was yummy inside & out…it was so pretty and really epitmozed the overall feel of the space. mmMMmmm…

Lounge it!

Thursday, August 13th, 2009 | trends, weddings | No Comments

This couple had a lovely Ukranian Catholic ceremony follwed by a Korean Pehbek ceremony…GORGEOUS!
It was interesting observing the two families witness & interact during both of these ceremonies.
The bride changed back into her breathtaking Ramona Keveza gown & the groom changed back into his stylish suit and continued on to their lovely Lounge we created for their reception.
The low seating was accented with turquoise cushions, the low mirrored coffee tables were accented with gorgeous florals & LOTS of candles, and the tall cruiser tables kept the guests flowing throughout the space.

Live, Love, Laugh…

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009 | testimonials, trends, weddings | No Comments

So…penniless (and without a lipgloss to my name!)…the next day went on to Kananaskis for a FAB tent wedding. This gorgeous bridal party was adorned with bling so we had to make sure the reception matched. The tent in the midst of the towering pine trees was filled with crystal & bronze trees, and an oh-so-fun candy buffet.

When we arrived for tear down at 1am these guys were still going FULL FORCE…it’s a shame about the noise regulations in the resorts in the mountains…otherwise I have no doubt these guys (bride & groom included) would’ve danced until dawn.
All their guests got a good sugar rush & a bottle of wine to sustain them. Everything was adorned with the couple’s motto “Live, Love, Laugh” – which they clearly do with fervor.

Thank you Lisa and all of  The Wedding Planner staff for making August 2nd the best day of our lives!!! The day was run so smoothly and completely exceeded our expectations. Much love, Andrea & James

Everything from their invitations to the custom menus, seating chart and gobo had their monogram. Those little details really make a huge impact. aug-09-305
