Hi! I'm Cathy, I love designing and creating, mom to 4 adorable kids, quite fortunate to have a hubby that enables me to thrive. I am passionate about all things wedding. With many-a- wedding spaces transformed over the past few years, I love to share my experiences along this exciting journey. I embrace the opportunity to relive past wedding designs, to 'connect', share insights on wedding inspirations, share my personal journey and this work I have come to love so dearly, helping couples' dreams come true on their special day!
Lisa and Corey’s wedding decor was one I enjoyed so much as I also created all the greenery for the tables and many other areas we hung these at, a special one for sure!. I enjoyed working with them, Lisa meet me at a bridal show and booked me within 10 minutes of talking her inspiration over with me, now how can I not be partial to her!
Veronica and Haysom are one couple I am so glad I met! Both extremely easy going and trusting me with their decor choices and all. It was such a pleasure working with this very easy going couple.
With over 300 guests to pamper for the night, the day turned out to be absolutely perfect!
The color choices was spot on for the vibe they were going for. Oh that majestic ceiling draping is swoon worthy! So much fun putting together the backdrop that became the backdrop to their epic silhouette photo. Pictures are worth more than a thousand words.
Thank you Veronica and Haysom for allowing us to be a part of setting an awesome ambiance for your special day.
Courtney and Colin are both amazing and just a joy to work with! It was an absolute pleasure to decorate for their special day. Referred to us by her maid of honor who was our client a year before, the day could not have gone any more perfect! The family are so awesome, and it was like they knew us before!
The “commons” is such a lovely room to decorate, very intimate for these looking for such ambiance. It was such delight to work with awesome vendors to showcase this beautiful space.
Trina McCarthy at the Atlantica Hotel Halifax is such a joy to work with, she pulled off 2 fantastic styled shoot to showcase their spaces and nothing could have been done any better or improved as far as my eyes can see, it was perfect!!!
The Atlantica is such a great wedding and event location and facility and the staff are just as awesome and warm!

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 …
It was such fun and that’s not a cliche when I said I truly enjoyed collaborating with these vendors listed below this blog post to shoot this stylized venue showcase of the million $ view Armdale Yatch Club.
This location is ideal for your nuptial, Chef Andy Thomson is the resident chef for the club, with his many years of experience in the food & beverage industry, I have had the pleasure of him been the caterer for weddings I have decorated in the past and the feedback from these clients has been just awesome!
Still on the “hunt” for a wedding venue? Give them a call and see if your date is still available! –AYC
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 🙂 .
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!…
