Whimsical

From A Brit & A BlondeThere’s nothing more exciting for a wedding team than a couple who dreams of an explosion of creativity for their big day. Every single part of this wedding was rad, stunning and perfect. There were so many details that are just to lovely for words. The couple brought together some of the best Toronto wedding vendors to create what the bride Aleks called her “Dream Team”. Mercedes from Darling & Daisy was the creative director pulling together a most gorgetastic and whimsical look and feel.

Aleksandra works in a library and is passionate about reading, which inspired such details as the book page backdrop and library card “seating chart.” Beet & Path designed personalized library cards which include the guests name, meal choice, and an itinerary on the flip side. Each guest retrieved his or hers in a vintage library card box. The room was adorned by candle light, lace, books and flowers. Blush and Bloom created, garlands, bouquets and an abundance of centerpieces featuring pink peonies, mums, a variety of roses, and greenery arranged with a lush yet organic flare. The vintage furniture added character and a sense of family comfort to the wedding.

A focal point of design was the ladder archway under which the vows took place, later transformed into an elaborate sweet display on the dance floor. The Wedding cake Shoppe baked the most delicious variety of cakes, pies, cookies, cupcakes, tarts and everything your sweet tooth could possibly crave. Darling and Daisy hand made a “Sweet Love” marquee sign, labels for each treat and styled the display incorporating a sequins table cloth, bar cart, 2 vintage desks and of course – tons of beautiful foliage.

We have literally never seen so many flowers – the reception set up was gorgeous and felt like a garden.

From The Bride…We wanted the day to be about us and our unique relationship; and we wanted to share that with our closest family and friends. We are very untraditional, we planned our wedding, then told our family and friends, and then did the “formal proposal” We instantly decided that we would not do anything that we didn’t feel comfortable with, especially the traditional aspects of weddings that didn’t have meaning to us. We decided that we would spend as much time as possible together, we woke up together, had breakfast together with family, and we saw each other as soon as we were ready. We walked down the aisle together too. We wanted to the whole day to be a reflection of us and our style; fun, casual and pretty, basically we wanted to host a great party.

A Berry Hued 30th Birthday Bash

Thirty Years is a reason to celebrate. And I say go big. Ashley Lindzon Events clearly had the same philosophy when she set out to plan a berry hued bash for her big 3-0. With photography by Mango Studios, a whole lot of goodness happening with blooms by Fuscia Designs, and calligraphy on pomegranates (pomegranates!) by The Lettering Studio, this is just the kind of party we dream about.


As a wedding and party planner, I was excited at the opportunity of planning my own party to celebrate my 30th birthday.

I wanted to throw a feminine and flirty brunch for my friends and couldn’t resist adding some cute little details along the way. The colour palate chosen was all berry hues – navy, deep reds, bright pink, pale pink with rose gold accents.

My favorite details were the pomegranate place cards used at each place setting and the gorgeous bold red detailed birthday cake.

Modern Toronto Wedding at Malaparte

We may only be two days into 2015 but I’d bet my bottom dollar that this bouquet will be one of the best of the year. Paige Lewis Events coordinated and designed this entire celebration, from the florals to the cake, and I keep pinning photo after photo from this gorgeous gallery by Ikonica Images. I have a feeling I’m not the only one and we’ll be seeing these flowers repinned many more times to come.

From The Bride… Having both moved to Toronto together early in our relationship, it was important to Andre and I that our wedding be held in the city we now call home. What better place to show off our city and throw an amazing party than in the heart of downtown. Malaparte offered everything we were looking for in a venue from incredible views of the CN Tower to the most delicious food from Oliver & Bonacini. The venue also lent itself well to the style of wedding we both wanted – modern and clean yet full of romantic touches and elegant elements. It’s not your typical ballroom!

It was important to us that our wedding not look like a very traditional wedding. While we wanted some traditional elements, we wanted to throw in surprises that our guests may not have seen before. Luckily we had our wedding planner, Paige Lewis, to help us with this. She suggested unique elements like harvest tables and chair decals. For us, the harvest tables were a no-brainer. They gave our reception space a streamlined, modern look and gave the evening a more intimate feeling.

We also worked with Paige to perfect our colour story. She suggested colour palettes that were fresh and distinctive. In the end, we went with a black, white, gold and mint colour scheme. Even though mint has been “done before” I hadn’t seen it presented this way with tons of gold to add luxury and touches of black to keep the look elegant and grounded.

Incorporating us as a couple into the day was also important. Andre is Portuguese so I wanted to celebrate his culture. We decided against the traditional Portuguese seafood midnight buffet and instead infused the day with more refined touches of his heritage. On our dessert table we had the most incredible Pastéis de Nata (Portuguese custard tarts) and our favour tags were written in both English and Portuguese. My family is from Nova Scotia so our menu included a play on fish & chips (an expertly prepared potato-crusted halibut) and once the dancing started, I made sure the DJ had lots of upbeat, east coast music on hand.

My Hayley Paige dress was my favourite element of the day. When I started shopping for a dress I scoured the GTA for something unique. I found my dress while searching online. I loved it from the moment I saw it. The dress was romantic with a touch of sexy and the incredible beaded straps and back was exactly what I was looking for. After discovering there was only one store in my area that carried the designer, Pearl Bridal House, I called them immediately. I discovered that a sample hadn’t even been made yet because the dress was so new! The ladies at Pearl suggested I try on a similar style to get an idea of what it would look like. After trying on the other dress, looking at the photos online for weeks and endlessly debating it with my bridesmaids, I took the plunge and purchased it without actually trying it on! When I finally tried on the sample a few months later, I knew I had made the right decision. At the reveal, Andre’s jaw literally dropped and at the reception, my guests could not stop saying how they had never seen a dress like this before.

Our wedding day overflowed with love and happiness. It’s such an incredible feeling being surrounded by so many people who support and love you. Andre and I could not have been more blessed at that moment. It’s a day we’ll truly never forget.
