April Joy Events

Another incredible event designer I found off Once Wed, is event designer April Joy Events, based out of Chicago. From the photos you can see their firm is very detail oriented, which of course, makes more memorable and beautiful weddings.

Florist Nicolette Camille

I found a great florist, Nicolette Camille off this amazing blog, Once Wed. I've posted some pictures from her website of examples of how you can take a traditional spring colours such as pink, and turn it into a fall bouquet by mixing it with dark green, deep orange, and deep burgundies.

Fall Shoe Picks

As you all know from a previous post, i'm not a big fan of white bridal shoes (just a personal preference thing!). Due to the popularity of the last post, I decided to post my favourite shoes for fall.

My Bridal Shower!

I am truly so blessed to have a sister who loves to throw parties as much as I do. We have probably been planning each others showers almost as much as we have been planning our own weddings! The exciting itinerary included tea, and a "chocolate sommelier" who came in to do a very informative chocolate tasting.
I wish I had more pictures to share, as photos cannot comprehend the beautiful shower she threw. Thanks to my Sister for a beautiful event as always. Also, a big thank you to all those who helped contribute!My sister incorporated gorgeous shades of melon coloured chrysanthemums, succulents, gorgeous white dalias for centerpieces.
She also handcrafted tissue paper blooms in melon shades, using a large 24" white lantern as the form. Guests could choose from a tray of looseleaf tea bags of my favourite teas, and enjoyed them in glass tea cup and saucers. She rented white garden chairs, white linens and her coworker sewed sheer honeydew runners.
A gorgeous spread of the most delicious foods prepared by my sister and my friend Debbie. Highlights included melon coloured petit fours, miniature cupcakes with melon fondant icing (adorned by beautiful handmade sugar flowers (thanks Chris!), green tea shortbread, caramel pots de creme served in miniature ramikens and porcelain spoons, a selection of scones, endive topped with lobster & avocado, mini puff pastries with roasted tomato & basil. Delicious!!
