Since last year I’ve been working with this awesome couple to help them plan their wedding. They have been wonderful to work with and I can’t wait to bring all of our ideas, plans and hard work to life on Saturday!
Getting hitched in Paris, Ontario, this couple chose some of the finest vendors to work with, and I will definitely be posting pictures and details about their big day in the upcoming weeks.
If you want to stress less like Brooke & Richard, book us for your 2013 wedding. We’re offering 30% off Day of Coordination services on all bookings prior to Nov 30/12.
Is the art of calligraphy a thing of the past? Your mother, aunt and maybe even your older sister or cousin might remember hand writing all of their escort cards, place cards, etc for their wedding. Nowadays computers print most things for us as a variety of fonts, sizes and ink colours are available. So I gotta ask, would you use calligraphy? It’s timeless and sets the tone for an elegant affair. It’s what the Royals would use, and is oh-so-classy.
If you live in Hamilton, Ontario you can reach out to the Hamilton Calligraphy Guild to see if they have a member that could work with you for your wedding stationery. Or, you could hire a professional like Diane from “Calligraphy by Diane” who’s located in Toronto and has hand written calligraphy for many Brides for their menu cards, programs and more.
With vintage weddings remaining popular, you might just want to consider calligraphy over the computer. Just a thought.

With School back for the year it got me thinking about School Sweethearts. I can’t even count how many crushes I had throughout school – all the different boys names I doodled in my notebooks and wondering if I’d ever be any of their Mrs.

For some couples they are in fact School Sweethearts. They might have been in the same class in elementary school, or went to the same school and didn’t hook up until later in life. Or sometimes, they are High School Sweethearts who’ve been together 5, sometimes 10 years before they tie the knot.
