This couple may look familiar to you, if so that’s probably because they are featured on the front cover of the just released Halifax Wedding magazine Spring 2018 edition. I am so honored to be the decorator for this beautiful couple!

This couple are near and dear to my heart. I have known Odette for many years, and I was honored when she reached out to me just immediately she got proposed to in helping set the ambiance that will truly reflect both cultures. This wedding has to take place soon as they both want to begin their life together ASAP!

A love affair from Dalhousie University, and years of travelling back and forth Halifax to Bermuda and vice versa with her Bermuda groom, this is such a happy ending to finally be able to be together happily ever after.

With Odette originally from Togo in West Africa and Cal from Bermuda, its a rich mesh of culture and this couple wanted nothing short of celebrating this union.

From the Throne Area and seat for the King and his Queen, to the cake and night entertainment and attires, its truly one to remember and that’s not a cliche!

The Basin view is such an awesome venue to decorate and working with them was so so easy!

Fallon Jones of Ready or Knot wedding and Event Planning is a gem, this day could not have run like a well oiled machine without her expertise and patience and all around awesomeness.

Wishing both of them happily ever after, it is so refreshing to see how they are both embracing life as I stayed in touch with both of them via social media.
