Lisa is on top of the world…literally…

Saturday, March 14th, 2009 | travel, trends, weddings | No Comments

I’m currently at the top of Kicking Horse (Golden, BC) preparing for our clients’ wedding later. I refuse to worry about all the snow & wind…it’s still going to be fabulous & a total experience for all of the guests.
The luscious palette of purples and greens will be a gorgeous contrast to the freshly fallen snow. There will be lots of candlelight and lots of pine cones which will be a striking contrast to the dozens and dozens of orchids that will be scattered throughout the space.
All the details from the invitations to the seating chart, place cards, menus and table numbers all match. The table runners are a deep aubergine, the flowers are a mixture of purples and greens, and all the printed materials are green with striking black and white camping symbols…they’re perfect for this couple.
I LOVE that the bride is going to ski down the hill in her princess gown with the photographer taking photos along the way…I can’t wait to see the photos…and will post some of my snapshots as soon as I’m able.

Colin Cowie

At the recent ABC conference I was one of only 8 people chosen to have lunch with Colin Cowie. The lunch was fantastic, the decor was beautiful…but by far the most exciting was to sit next to Colin and be able to discuss his philosophy for events and life! Colin has done some of the most fabulous events all over the world. He’s done parties and events for Oprah, Jennifer Lopez and a plethora of Middle Eastern royalty.

ABC Conference Newport Beach

Friday, December 19th, 2008 | travel, trends | No Comments


Kim, Valeeshia & I recently attended the ABC (Assoc. of Bridal Consultants) Annual Conference in Newport Beach, CA.  It brought together wedding planners from all over the globe – so not only can we stay abreast of the latest and greatest trends in the US – but also find out what the top planners around the world are up to.

There were lots of great workshops, seminars and events. The first evening there was a photo booth on site – which is always a fun addition to any wedding…you’ll get some great & crazy candids of your guests. This particular booth gives a copy to your guests but also keeps on on file so you as host will get a copy of all the photos. So fun!

There was also a “white event” where everyone was required to dress all in white. I personally have done a monochromatic event like this in California – but haven’t done one in Canada…whether you choose white, or black, or even pink…it certainly makes for great group shots.

Think Pink!

Saturday, December 13th, 2008 | travel, trends | No Comments

 I just got back from Paris where EVERYTHING for Christmas was hot pink! I had never been in Paris at Christmas time before so it was wonderful just to wander around and see all the gorgeous architecture adorned for the season.

Last year we got a hot pink Christmas tree for the office – which Kim & I just put up the other day – it’s nice to know that we were ahead of the trend!
