One Look at This Wedding and You’ll Want a Donut Bar, Too

After seeing Dru and Seeralan’s romantic-meets-rustic big day, I’m convinced every couple needs to follow in their footsteps and have a donut bar at their wedding. Why have just wedding cake when you can have wedding cake and donuts? But that’s not the only idea you should steal. This wedding is full of pretty inspiration — from the pastel color palette to the wild florals to the Bride’s lace wedding dress. Get inspired, courtesy of The Love Studio, in The Vault!

From Sara Baig DesignsThe inspiration for Dru and Seeralan’s reception design stemmed from Dru’s choice of a dusty pastel palette, her romantic, flowy lace dress and their poise and grace captured beautifully by Andreea from The Love Studio. They hosted an intimate soiree for their close family and friends at The Arcadian Loft. We loved the city vibe of the space, the exposed concrete ceilings, the oversized metal doors and the reclaimed brick accent wall. Dru and Seeralan selected a beautiful palette of serenity blue paired with hues of dusty pink and blush with antique gold accents setting the tone for a luxe rustic ambiance. The bouquets were designed with textural florals and cascading blush satin ribbons for the bridesmaids and serenity blue ribbon for the bride. We styled the groomsmen boutonnieres to match the chic blue checkered ties and their classic navy suits. The long harvest style tables welcomed the guests with green foliage garlands running the length of the tables, intertwined with mercury glass vintage vases with loose floral bouquets and a sea of candles. The mercury glass accents and driftwood details encapsulated the season bringing the outside in against the grandiose City Hall backdrop spanning the length of the room. We love it when all of the design details become a seamless vision from décor and florals to stationery and cake design. Our team collaborated with Jimmy from The Ferris Wheel Press to create soft, romantic floral inspired day of stationery printed on luxe shimmer paper. As well as The Rolling Pin, who created a rustic naked cake to feature our fresh floral arrangements. Our labour of love is styling, and we loved designing a beautiful display for a doughnut barscape. Doughnuts are one of the brides’ favourites, and we were thrilled to incorporate Dru and Seeralan’s pictures enjoying their favourite dessert. The doughnut bar details we enjoyed styling the most were the mini-doughnut paper cones made out of hand picked watercolour and gold striped paper, and the tower of doughnuts atop a luxe gold pedestal vase surrounded in rustic cascading greenery.

This Baby Shower Puts The Cutest Twist on the Phrase “Bun In The Oven”

We are all for showers. They usually come bearing sweets and day drinking; the recipe for a weekend well spent. August In Bloom and DeLight Floral + Design have that recipe down to a pastel science. One that includes adorable bun in the oven details. We’re talking cinnamon buns, hot cross bun macarons, even a bun pinata. But what we really can’t get past is the gourmet burgers on pastel waffle buns. Whhhaaaattt? Sign us up. See the full spread captured by Simply Lace Photography right here.

Sara Sull and Mallory Cheung of August In Bloom were over the moon to celebrate one of their own in style. Sara’s sister, Shannon Siu, has a baby on the way and we wanted to throw her an unforgettable shower to welcome a new addition to the family while still keeping it the intimate gathering she was hoping for.

We dreamt up a bun in the oven themed party for our special mommy-to-be and of course the perfect venue was the cutest bakeshop in town! Pretty pastel invitations were sent to Shannon’s closest family and friends who were instructed to knock on a bright pink door that could not be missed.

Darling artisanal items such as a hand-illustrated welcome sign and our special guest, the baby bun piñata, greeted guests upon arrival. Lush blooms of Shannon’s favorite flowers filled the tablescape and guests dined on vintage mismatched china in front of a whimsical botanical wall.

The menu featured gourmet hand pressed mini burgers with pink and lavender waffle buns. Macarons disguised as hot cross buns, a sweet berry cake, cupcakes and cinnamon buns filled the sweet table. Cotton candy treats were gifted to all the guests as a thank you favor to take home.

Shannon described the party as charming, fresh and sweet with delicate details. We were so honored to have the opportunity to shower this new mom with gifts, love and well wishes for the baby!

You’d Never Know a Wildfire Was Burning Just Miles From Their Wedding

Courtney and Tyson had the sweetest celebration ever. Despite the fact that there was a raging wildfire burning just miles away, nothing seemed to derail this duo’s plans on promising their forever. From the dreamy lakeside ceremony to dinner overlooking the valley, every carefully orchestrated detail by Spread Love Events went off without a hitch. Christie Graham Photography captured it all in The Vault!



From Spread Love EventsCourtney and Tyson were engaged just off the lake shore of La Stella Winery in Osoyoos, B.C. and chose sister wineries La Stella and Le Vieux Pin to host their wedding ceremony and reception. Saying their “I do’s” by the lake at La Stella, and then enjoying dinner and dancing under a white marquee tent among the rows of grapes at the nearby Le Vieux Pin. Elegant details, wonderful food, heart felt speeches and a dance party that lasted until the early morning hours. Courtney and Tyson, the way you looked at each other that day, and the joy shared among all your family and friends, reminds us why we love what we do. Thank you for trusting Spread Love Events to plan your wedding, it was such a privilege!

As a Wedding Planner we have the unique privilege of getting to know our clients in a personal way and playing a role in their most significant of celebrations. Throughout this process many hours are spent together dreaming up their vision, navigating decisions, and guiding them towards this special day. Seeing our clients vision realized, and watching them enjoy and celebrate with their family and friends brings us so much joy. On Courtney and Tyson’s wedding day, wild fire smoke blew in moments before their ceremony. Our dreamy vision of a lake-side ceremony and dinner overlooking the valley was changing. And yet it didn’t. Courtney, Tyson and their families didn’t blink an eye. The wind and wild fire had nothing on these two’s love for each other. It was one of the most meaningful celebrations we have been a part of. The love and energy shared, the laughter, tears and amazing dancing, the celebration was real. It reminded us why we do what we do.
