  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

A Pictou County DIY Decorating with love!

When you take a large blank slate and turn it into an awesome ambiance, you should feel well accomplished.

Lynn’s decor is one of these that started off our wedding season this year. This bride had the pleasure of decorating for her special day as I was unavailable on this week-end (I was sipping pina colada in the 30 degrees sunshine with family at a Dominican Republic Resort…yeah, life is hard 🙂 )

But Lynn is a trooper and with the dream team she has assembled, was able to swag her head table in ways only a seasoned decorator can pull off (a little birdie told me there were lots of hours spent doing it, but the end result is soooo worth it!) and as the picture shows, backdrop and ceiling drapes just as we do them…. and does someone love burgundy?

Thanks to tons of emails we nailed down every single decor and linen in the design concept. I definitely did not want them to come back all the way from Pictou county to pick up …

A DIY decorating with much love!!!

Thanks to tons of emails we nailed down every single decor and linen in the design concept. I definitely did not want them to come back all the way from Pictou county to pick up some overlooked decor/linen so we booked in extras of many things and they made use of these for added effect! I am partial to this couple for reasons known to me... so I will just have to say I am so glad I got to meet a client that has turned out to be a friend (we have a joke between us about tall girls needing to stick together....hahaha). And its a pleasure meeting Pannel, both so well suited to each other! Meeting them months later I still feel the newly married glow all over them still... good stuffs. I wish both Mr and Mrs Chindalo happily ever after! IMG_7251IMG_6504 IMG_6506 IMG_6508 IMG_6698 IMG_7070 IMG_7152 IMG_7224

Anna and Jordan are a lovely couple I am lucky to have met. Anna is full of energy and I believe I have only seen her smile or laugh, that’s how much positive aura she brings to your life!

Super excited about her special day, I can vividly recollect and wanting it to be the perfect day, she set out to achieve what turned out to be a stunning ambiance for her guest and family. The picture tells the whole story.

This DIY bride with the help of our linen and decor and some she curated herself was able to turn her wedding day to a swoon worthy picturesque one. She epitomizes my thought that every bride needs some bling in her life 🙂 , as her special day was not missing any of the bling, and of course with that touch of class that makes it hers.

I have the pleasure of keeping in touch with this couple via social media… Anna’s sure a busy lady!

Wishing them both Happily Ever After!

Jamie and Josh Timmons special day decor

A Black and Silver Glitz inspired wedding decor

Hello April! Hello Sunshine!! Hello Readers!!!

As always, we cherish the time you spend on our blog and aim to make it worth your while.

As a rental outfit and an event decor designer, I’m not surprised a large number of our clients dream that their special day will be as beautiful as the ones they see in Knot Magazine weddings or on Pinterest Boards. We also believe in aiming for the sky. Unfortunately sometimes there are situations that prevent us from being able to set up their picture perfect wedding day décor. These situations include the distance of the venue from Halifax, budgetary constraints or previously being booked for another wedding on that date.

Having been in those shoes before, and as a Professional in this field, I make it a point to share my honest opinion. Couples, along with their friends and family can achieve these looks (including those featured in our gallery) with some ingenuity and real quality items. …
