Real Wedding: Olivia and Anthony


Natural, elegant, romantic and fun, these were the words Olivia used to describe what she envisioned for her and Anthony’s wedding the first time we met. Set at the beautiful Hart House Restaurant on Deer Lake, it was a vision we were excited to help her and Anthony create!

While the day flew by, it was full of beautiful moments we are so happy Christine Pienaar was able to capture for Olivia and Anthony. They were truly in the moment and it was wonderful to witness their love for each other and excitement to be married. Enjoy a glimpse of their wedding day below!


Receiving notes like the one below from Olivia, it’s the icing on the cake to seeing our couples enjoy every moment of their day!

From the bride:

“I don’t even know how to put into words just how thankful we are for everything you have done for us over the past year. Yesterday, could not have been more perfect and from our perspective, seamless! You both allowed us to completely enjoy the day and take in every moment. As a PR professional and a control freak (haha!), I don’t think I have ever felt so comfortable, confident, and at ease. We never had to stress about any detail, and for that we are forever grateful.

I cannot tell you how many people have come up to us to say just how amazing of a job your team did.

Some words that people have used to describe yesterday to us are beautiful, elegant, classic, intimate, stunning, amazing and a total party. I think if we looked back on what we wanted people to feel that is exactly what we accomplished.”

Thank you Olivia and Anthony for your kind words, and for the opportunity to play a role in your amazing wedding day!

Thank you to the talented vendor team that helped make this day so special!

Real Wedding: Jon and Bani


We can’t believe it’s been a year since this beautiful day! What better way to say Happy Anniversary, than to share a look back at Jon and Bani’s beautiful wedding day captured by Blush Photography.

While Erin of Filosophi Events planned the logistics of the wedding, we were grateful she suggested Jon and Bani work with Spread Love Events to design the visual details of the day. Together we worked through our Event Styling and Design process to uncover Jon and Bani’s vision – a chic city wedding with thoughtful and unexpected details. Modern, romantic, and classic with an edge!

Jon and Bani were married at the iconic and always classic Vancouver Club. We don’t design a lot of ballroom weddings, but when we do, we always begin by looking at the “bones” of the venue. The Vancouver Club offers a historic and elegant charm in it’s interior detailing. We wanted to embrace the venue’s charm, while adding a modern edge.

The ceremony took place in the Vancouver Club’s lobby, with marble staircases. We carried the marble detailing through into the ballroom, by incorporating Winston’s marble china and gold flatware.

To create a sense of “airyness” in the ballroom, ghost chairs and sleek modern glassware from Pedersen’s were selected. Florals were designed by Celsia Floral – moving from wildflower installations in the ceremony which softened the hard marble surfaces to artistic statement pieces in the ballroom.

             

Congratulations Jon and Bani! Thank you for including us in your beautiful wedding day!

Easter Entertaining Inspiration


Lately, I’ve been feeling extra inspired by the spring weather and change in season. With Easter long weekend and entertaining aspirations on my mind, I’ve rounded up a few ideas, and a few just for fun links, that are inspiring me this week. 

Carrot Cake by The Little Epicurean 

From classic carrot cake (with the cutest fresh topper), to a Janessa Leone hat I’m calling the “Easter Hat” (anything to justify this piece), and party favours I plan on making with Meri Meri napkins if I don’t eat all the mini eggs first (I’m already on the second pack). Enjoy the round-up and have a lovely Easter weekend!
