Here is an article from the latest edition of The Calgary Bridal Guide…enjoy!

It was such fun working with them…they were so cute & very sweet. They both graduated from medical school a few days before their wedding so it was a particularly joyous celebration.

CSEP in the house!!

Friday, September 10th, 2010 | testimonials | No Comments

I’m excited to announce I received my CSEP (Certified Special Events Professional) designation this morning. It’s a VERY long process.  If you’d like to read a bit more about it take a look at this link:

I just did a search on the ISES website and there are only 8 (including me) CSEPs listed in all of Canada…I guess I’ve joined an exclusive club!

Juicy Fruit!!

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010 | trends, weddings | No Comments

This happy & sunny colour palette of soft pinks & bright yellows was the perfect antidote for a gray & rainy wedding day.


We adorned the chairs with lovely little paper lanterns tied with a swathe of wide satin ribbon. The altar flowers were just stunning – tall vases filled with lemons topped with pink roses and oodles of orchids. The aisle was awash in 6,000 rose petals.


Table centerpieces were lemon-filled glass cubes with hydrangeas and dahlias…so pretty…and the whole room was very inviting. Lots of warm pink uplighting, lots of candles, and of course lots of fabulous custom wedding day printing.


This couple lives in Los Angeles – and they were just a delight to work with. The wedding needed to reflect their shiny, happy personalities…and it sure did…right down to the scrumptious macarons (1 pink, 1 yellow, of course!) in the cute customized favour boxes at each place setting…mmmMMMmm.

Best wishes! xo
