Alan and Siobhan’s  wedding decor is one I am so thrilled to blog on.  A testament that even keeping it simple can definitely result in a well put together and classy room ambiance for the special day.

This couple were easy to work with, booking us from out of province, thank you for trusting us with your special day decor. And they get to enjoy the newly renovated Lord Nelson Hotel ballroom!

Wishing them both happily ever after!SA-Wedding-BridalParty-2 SA-Wedding-BridalParty-11 SA-Wedding-BridalParty-13 SA-Wedding-BridalParty-23 SA-Wedding-BridalParty-25 SA-Wedding-BridalParty-29 SA-Wedding-BridalParty-54 SA-Wedding-BridalParty-55 SA-Wedding-BridalParty-56 SA-Wedding-BridalParty-60 SA-Wedding-BridalParty-65 SA-Wedding-BridalParty-85 SA-Wedding-BridalParty-86 SA-Wedding-BridalParty-87 SA-Wedding-BridalParty-88 SA-Wedding-Ceremony-23 SA-Wedding-Ceremony-33 SA-Wedding-Ceremony-56 SA-Wedding-Ceremony-92 SA-Wedding-Ceremony-93 SA-Wedding-Ceremony-98 SA-Wedding-LadiesPrep-8 SA-Wedding-LadiesPrep-13 SA-Wedding-LadiesPrep-14 SA-Wedding-LadiesPrep-16 SA-Wedding-LadiesPrep-17 SA-Wedding-LadiesPrep-18 SA-Wedding-LadiesPrep-19 SA-Wedding-LadiesPrep-21 SA-Wedding-LadiesPrep-22 SA-Wedding-LadiesPrep-23 SA-Wedding-LadiesPrep-25 SA-Wedding-LadiesPrep-26 SA-Wedding-LadiesPrep-34 SA-Wedding-LadiesPrep-38 SA-Wedding-LadiesPrep-59 SA-Wedding-LadiesPrep-60 SA-Wedding-Reception-1 SA-Wedding-Reception-2 SA-Wedding-Reception-4 SA-Wedding-Reception-5 SA-Wedding-Reception-6 SA-Wedding-Reception-10 SA-Wedding-Reception-12 SA-Wedding-Reception-20 SA-Wedding-Reception-70 SA-Wedding-Reception-110tifu

This year I seem to be involved in a number of editorials. Maybe am enjoying seeing prettiness so much or my industry friends just love to have me on their project, but whatever it is I kept very busy during the winter months with these stylized shoots that the winter months speed by and now we are right at the start of the exciting wedding season! By the way, we have every week-end booked for wedding set up from now till November so no snoozing for this girl and her fabulous team! Hopefully I can sneak a vacation week in somewhere…hint, hint 🙂

Trina is the lovely wedding coordinator for the Atlantica Hotel Halifax on Robie and it was so awesome to work with her, shes so easy and sweet!!!

And why won’t you enjoy stylized shoot when its burger week and the Atlantica Hotel provided us a complimentary meal with the delicious burger at their fine restaurant.

So fun to get to sit for a long leisurely lunch with vendor friends, some i just met …

When you are part of something as well coordinated and finely orchestrated as Allison and Charbel’s hilltop wedding, you will be over the moon! I felt super special to be the decorator for this grand celebration of love with their dear ones lovingly supporting them in their declaration of “together forever”.


Oh, I still remember discussing with the couple about that oh! super duper grand tent, the most luxurious ceiling treatment installed by the provinces best and that custom flooring that spans the entire gigantic tent.

With the outside of the tent transformed overnight with fresh lush green sods, it was just so perrrfect!.

Master Chef Rob MacIsaac commanded an impressive food station that will rival any 5 star hotel offering in its selection, taste and presentation. An open bar stocked like none other I have seen stood proudly on one side of the enormous tent, with close to 400 guest pampered for the night, I know this is a big deal!

No detail was left untouched, my take-away was that this couple wanted their guest to …

What an amazing time my crew and I had designing and styling this wedding at Pier 21, of course one of my fav venue!. Classic black and white stripped runners, black floorlenght linen and oh! all these gold accents we sooo love!
This couple added a lot of personalized details that made it distinctively theirs! I absolutely love among many others the gold maple leaf place cards, very creative.

Marly is truly a beautiful bride inside and out, the time spent working with her were all positive and a real pleasure! So glad I got to work with you both designing and executing your dreams and inspirations of your special day ambiance.

So romantic for the 2 lovebirds to be able to jet off to Vegas right after their special day to enjoy their honeymoon 🙂 .

Wishing you both happily ever after!!

For the love of cake……a taste of heaven in every bite!

When I set out to style a wedding reception, I am always excited to view the cake. Wedding cakes has evolved into such a work of art! I did a quick digging up of some of the wedding cakes that has graced a number of the venues we have decorated in recent past and I came up with some of these below!!

Any couple note their cake?

(For the record)–Sometimes I do not get to take or receive pictures with cake showcased in them and I also want to keep this objective and not include images of couples cutting their cake that identifies the couples as such I do have a whole lot more beautiful cakes images I did not include.

I also did not include the cake vendors as a few of the cakes I do not quite remember who made them so easier to just keep to the cakes pictures alone. 🙂 Even though I vividly remember every individual couple whose cake is included here as well as the venue these cakes graced!

A Truly Elegant Wedding at the Westin Nova Scotian

Maryam and Remon’s wedding was one to remember! Been a guest at a wedding I decorate, I am always grateful to be able to sit back and enjoy the ambiance the couple and my team worked hard at creating, and I still get amazed at how these all pull together elegantly!

This couple went all out to treat all their over 200 guests to the best in food, drink, service, music and over all ambiance for their special day. A cake that looks too good to be cut was beautifully on display. You can’t improve on perfection, so I know the day could not have been more amazing than it was.

Maryam and Remon it was a pleasure to be your designer/decorator and decor suppliers, as well as a wedding guest with my hubby.

Now that this bride has moved to be with the love of her life in sunny California, I get to enjoy staying in touch and seeing how they are enjoying their life together via social media. With you both I added one more …
