Stacey and Joe Get Married! Part 1

Pink, sparkle, more pink, and more sparkle! Throw in a beautiful couple, lots of love, and fireworks floating across the sky and you get Stacey and Joe’s magical day. Stacey is a girl after my own heart because each time we got together we discovered more and more things that we had in common! Pink, things that sparkle, Coach purses, “Say Yes to the Dress” and the list goes on! Stacey and Joe literally lived down the street from one another but it wasn’t until they connected online that they fell head over heels in love. Along with this fantastic list of vendors this day was truly an incredible day!

Oh… and did I mention that Stacey got her dress from Kleinfelds?!?! I’m pretty sure I was living vicariously through her with each trip to New York that she took!!

Stephanie and Nick Get Married! Part 2!

Well everyone, here is long over due part 2 of Stephanie and Nick’s awesome wedding! Check out the second half of the formal photo’s, the ceremony (which includes three of the cutest little flower girls… EVER!), and the wonderfully classy cocktail reception. This wedding was seriously so much fun but one thing I will never forget was when the DJ played the last song of the night and the couples’ friends and family stood around them in a circle and sang along to “Hey Jude” as Nick and Steph danced in the middle. With the help of all of the fantastic vendors below, I’m sure that this day was everything that the couple hoped for!

Stephanie and Nick Get Married! Part 1!

Hello again! So back in the beginning of June I had the pleasure of hanging out with this awesome couple on their wedding day! Steph and Nick were seriously so much fun and their big day was just that! It was full of fun, family, friends but most of all, a love that most people dream of.  Stephanie is an interior designer so the decor and design of the day were drool worthy and it was so incredible to plan with her and see it all come together. Her impeccable taste mixed with some fantastic vendors made for a day to remember! Check out Part 1 of the photos and the list of vendors that made it possible!

Christy and Byron Get Married Part 2!

Okay, so you’ve seen the first half of the awesome photo’s from my beautiful friends wedding so without further adieu here are the formal photo’s and reception photo’s! The day was seriously so much fun and Joel Ross captured some incredible photos!  We started off by going to the Winnipeg Railway Museum and then went on to the Esplanade Riel before heading to Finn McCue’s to grab some drinks. The cutest part of the afternoon was a the little girl who thought Christy was a real-life princess and couldn’t take her eyes off of the beautiful bride! You’ve seen the photo’s! Who could blame the little cutie! Anyway, after the photo session we headed over to The Qualico Centre in Assinaboine Park for the fun filled reception. Delicious food, beautiful decor, heartfelt speeches, a romantic first dance… what more could you ask for??

Christy and Byron Get Married! Part 1

Hey All! So over the last few months I’ve been posting photo’s from my dear friend Christy’s Jack and Jill Shower, Bachelorette Party and now I’m very excited to show you Part 1 of their wedding photo’s!! The day was amazing to say the least and filled with so many beautiful moments and memories. Christy is one of the classiest people I know and her wedding was just that. The colour palette was the sophisticated combination of white and grey, tall elegant floral arrangements lined the aisle at the church and then played double duty at the reception as centrepieces. I even had the opportunity to decorate the guestbook table and add some of my signature sparkle to the day. I had to say though, one of my favourite moments of the day was hearing Christy start off the ceremony by singing “The Lord’s Prayer” from the balcony of the church. Christy is a classically trained opera singer and when she started singing it filled the church in the most beautiful way. I’ve heard her sing before but that was a moment I will never forget! Check out the awesome photo’s by Joel Ross Photography and the list of fantastic vendors from the day!

… Then Comes The Baby In the Baby Carriage!

This post is a little bit different in that I’m not talking about things that happen before the wedding but something exciting that happens after! Just over a month ago one of my closest friends gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and I couldn’t be more happy for their new little family! Sweet little Eva Anelise has already melted her Auntie Ashley’s heart and I have fallen head over heals in love with her! She is beyond cute and just so much fun to cuddle! My mom and I had so much fun planning a shower for this sweet girl and her amazing momma so check out some of the photos from this pink girly night out!

IMG_0157

We used a pink floral quilt as a table cloth and then skirted the table with white tulle!

IMG_0121     IMG_0123

Pink roses and babies breath were a must, and check out the white and pink knit dress and booties… those were mine!!

     IMG_0168     IMG_0138

Throw some daisies into the mix and some girly vintage baby carriage napkins and it doesn’t get much sweeter than that!

IMG_0179

Individual Strawberry Shortcakes… Yes please!

IMG_0155

Homemade Imperial Cookies? Okay… I’ll take one of those too!

IMG_0131     IMG_0170

My mom loves vintage tea cups and vintage china in general so we had to use them for this girly event.

I unfortunately didn’t get any photo’s of Eva that night but check out how cute she is in the photo we had on the table!

Girl’s Night Out!

A week or so ago we celebrated my dear friends last weekend as a single girl and had a blast doing so! We started by having a delicious dinner at Tre Visi in the exchange, then had some good old fashion dares for her to complete! We later went back to my house for dessert, a boutique lingerie shower and some of our favourite Ambrosia Martini’s! We set up a personal lingerie shop so guests could pick out outfits that the guest of honour would be sure to love.  My friend Christy is classy to say the least so we wanted the evening to be just that, a classy celebration of her upcoming nuptials! We went with a pink and gold colour scheme and possibly added a little bit of glitter… or maybe a lot of glitter… Either way, I’m still finding little specks of sparkle through out my house! Check out some of photo’s below!

    IMG_0079

So many yummy treats!

Jack and Jill went up the hill…

Everyone knows this popular nursery rhyme, but today I’m not referring to the age old tale but to a Jack and Jill shower that I co-hosted last month for a friend.  We held the shower in the sun room at Joey Polo Park and provided appetizers and cupcakes for the guests and they were able to order their own meals if they desired. It was so much fun and hosting it in a restaurant was fun, different and made for a super easy clean up! We went with a purple and silver colour scheme, rented silver bling table runners from The little Linen and added some special DIY touches to make for  a shower that we felt represented the bride in an awesome way!

I didn’t get as many pictures as I would have liked but take a look at some of the details from the day!

We had a game sheet on each table, where guests had to guess who belonged to each fun fact!

We had guests sign the hearts which we then plan on putting into an album for the couple!

Matt and Kayla!

I’m so excited to finally share this beautiful wedding with you! Matt and Kayla got married last summer in Morden and it was such a gorgeous day! Kayla looked beyond stunning and everything about the day was picture perfect. They went for a rustic and feminine feel which I was totally in love with and the touches of pink were another obvious favourite of mine! Check out the photos and enjoy all of the sweet little touches! Kayla also entered their wedding into the It’s Love “Best of 2013 Decor & Centrepieces” and it was one of the winners! I can’t say I’m surprised… as it was beautiful to say the least! Check out the photo’s on the It’s Love website! http://weddingsinwinnipeg.ca/inspirationroom.php?post_id=2779
