Joie & Colin’s Wedding at NeXT Kanata

December 23, 2015 / no comments

A long over due post about an amazing wedding we planned and executed back in June. I LOVED THIS WEDDING. Everything about this wedding was fabolous, laid back, beautiful  and heart warming just like the amazing couple, Joie & Colin!

From the beginning Joie wanted to incorporate colours and themes from St. Vincent where she is originally from. To keep it elegant, we used white, yellow and teal. Using feathers was also a big part of the theme.

Colin & Joie chose to host their wedding at NeXT in Kanata known for its amazing food and service. They chose to work with our “Wedding in a Box package” to bring their wedding to life. Mitch Lenet Weddings who is also part of our wedding in a box package was on site to capture all the special moments.

Not only is this an off season for many vendors, but it’s an opportunity we urge for you take advantage of as you can save thousands of dollars by having your wedding in this season. If you are thinking of having a winter wedding and not sure how to go about it, we have a few great ideas. Grab a hot cup of coffee or tea and read on.

SAVE THE DATE: It might be the slow times for a lot of the wedding vendors, but it’s a busy season for a lot of people. Not only is it busy, but it is an expensive time of year with all the holiday shopping, vacations and people taking time off to enjoy the holidays. Your guests may have other commitments and you need to ensure you give them plenty of time & notice for the wedding. You can do this by sending save the date cards as early as 4-5 months prior to the big day.

COZY UP: Think of your guests and how you are going to keep them warm. Provide lots of options to keep your guests warm and comfortable especially during the ceremony and cocktail hour. Make sure you provide some wraps for guests to cover up, hot drinks for right after the ceremony and ask your venue if they provide heating items such as heat lamps, a fireplace area or even heated floors.

WEDDING TIMELINES: Unlike a summer wedding, during winter it gets dark pretty quickly. You need to consider how your day will play out when creating a time line. Photo opportunity is very limited during winter. Give yourself plenty of time for this. Because it gets dark pretty fast, lighting is  very important. Ensure you have lots of lights around your venue for photo purposes. Winter wedding planning

WARM WINTER MENU: Find great and creative ways to incorporate winter themes into your menu. Think of having a hot chocolate station or serve mulled wine and cider! Be creative. Your guests will appreciate this. Coffee and baileys any one? mmmm

November 20, 2015 / no comments

Do you want your wedding to stand out? Planning a wedding that truly reflects your needs is the key to having a unique wedding! Follow our 5 tips to ensure a great event!

1. First thing on our list is PERSONALIZATION: Make this wedding about you! The overall theme, feel and look of your wedding needs to be a reflection of the two of you. What makes you, YOU! Think of something you unique that reflects the both of you. If you like to travel, why not create a slide show with all the cool and awesome places you have travelled too? Do you like wine? Why not host your wedding at a vineyard? Have your guest sample different wines and cheeses during cocktail hour. Use some wine barrels and corks as part of your wedding décor.

2. Have an ORGANIZED wedding! Having an event planner will definitely help you stay organized and on track for the big day. Most wedding planners have a wedding monthly to-do list, wedding timelines, budgets and will help keep you on top of all your wedding appointments. Read our blog about what to do when feeling overwhelmed!

3. Giving your guests a great EXPERIENCE is the key to keep people talking about your wedding for years to come. How can we achieve this? By setting the right atmosphere, great food, awesome entertainment and by ensuring your wedding is very personal. Here are 9 awesome ways to entertain your guests!

4. You have to hire a professional WEDDING PLANNER! Wedding planners work for you to ensure you have the wedding of your dreams! We are the main contact between your wedding vendors and yourself. You don’t need to worry about all the little things on the day of your wedding! Just enjoy the day! To find out more about what we can do for you, contact us today!

5. We already mentioned this, but please HAVE FUN! Planning a wedding is definitely stressful! After all the planning, the day is now here! Try to enjoy it as much as possible as it does go by really fast. If you hired a professional wedding planner, you should have nothing to worry about!

Do you need an Engagement shoot

November 16, 2015 / no comments

Engagement shoot are great for practising! Most photographers often include complimentary engagement sessions for their wedding photographer clients. This is hugely important for both the photographer and the couple. It’s a great way for you to get comfortable both with being photographed and with the photographer. It also gives the photographer a great opportunity to get comfortable with your personalities and styles.

Are you or your partner camera shy? Most people that are camera shy tend to hate being photographed and this could make for awkward photos. Your photographer will work with you to make you more comfortable, relaxed so that you look more natural.

  • Update your Facebook profile pictures
  • Use them as a slide show during your engagement dinner/event

If an engagement shoot is included, take advantage of it. Use it for practise!
