Our Favourite Weddings – May 2011

With the number of weddings we are working on, it’s hard to do a post on every one, so we decided to do our monthly favourites to share with all of our loyal followers.  The month of May was a great one for clients who went outside the scope of a regular wedding, they picked stunning locations, did unique concepts and pushed the envelope on decor.  We are proud to have a hand in every single one, here are our favourite weddings for May 2011:

Ravina & Herman

Had a Sikh reception with 200 guests.  Need I say more? :)  A cocktail style reception in a very unique location, it was the reception that many couples dream of but can never plan because their families need to invite everyone they have ever met.  Kudos to R&H for managing their guest count and pulling off an event that was all party, no fluff.

Arika & Ajay

Our first wedding at the Montreal Science Centre – wow.  Located in Old Montreal, sitting right on the edge of the water, the Belvedre Room at the MSC is a gorgeous floor to ceiling window venue.  Now, renting a space that only provides you with 4 walls is a logistical mission, dealing with rentals, servers, caterers and 3 different decor vendors all working to pull the event together, but it was a challenge we were up to, especially for our bride who was one of THE SWEETEST brides we have ever met!

Priya & Jayshan

Priya came to us 1.5years ago with one request, she needed to have the traditional wedding but wanted to create something unique in every aspect of the decor, venue, food and entertainment.  We did just that to find vendors who could meet her high expectations.  P&J’s wedding had a plexiglass mandap, 450 ice chivari chairs, a silk acrobat performance the likes of Cirque du Soliel and a 40ft long dessert table.  Yup, definitely in the running for wedding of the year.

Photo Shoot Locations

Photo Shoot Locations!  This is one of the most difficult things to decide on for our couples.  A Park?  A Farm?  An Industrial Area? One of the last things all of our couples do is choose their photo shoot locations because it proves to be difficult to find the perfect place.  If the decision is left until the last minute, …

The Skinny on Wedding Cakes

How to Choose Your Wedding Cake With wedding season approaching, I get a ton of questions from my brides on cakes.  Do I even need a cake?  How do you choose a good wedding cake vendor?   What makes a good cake?  Let me first start with a cake story which emphasizes the importance of an experienced cake vendor. Common Misconception …

Our Favourite 2010 Cakes

Ausra & Deepan- Aug 29, 2010

Definitely one of our most original interfaith couples, Deepan and Ausra got married at the end of August and had a picturesque wedding reception at the Marriott Hotel in Downtown Toronto. When Deepan approached us about a year before his wedding, he had a big challenge ahead of him – his Lithuanian bride was in Miami and would barely be …

July 16 & 18 – Gardens & Bellvue Manor

This was one of the most visually stunning events we did this year!  The ceremony took place right at the edge of the water with a beautiful, flowing mandap, full of colour opening up to lake.  The overnight weather before the wedding created a lot of doubt for this outdoor ceremony as it was pouring rain right up until 6am.  …

Rupi & Dave – July 31 & Aug 1

YOU DON’T DO BLACK AT AN INDIAN WEDDING!…OR DO YOU? Going against conventional thought, our bride Rupi decided to incorporate black heavily into her wedding reception décor and went for a very classic and chic look like none we had seen before…and it worked; a black, red and crystal theme took over the room at the Westin Prince Hotel. For the …
