Table set up with Wedding Menus

November 19, 2015 / no comments

I love the little touches that wedding menus bring to the table. They can be used as added wedding décor. I usually tell my clients that the menus are definitely optional and are not a must. They are definitely good to have!  The advantages of having a table menu is to let  your guests know what meals will be served, what is coming next after each course and sometimes the ingredient involved with a specific meal.

Here are some gorgeous menus for inspiration:

Wedding Sparklers & Fireworks

November 17, 2015 / no comments

Using wedding sparkles and fireworks makes for beautiful photos. And who doesn’t love them? Fireworks are definitely more expensive than sparkles. If you are going to use either of these items, please ensure you have a professional vendor over looking the use- especially fireworks. SAFTY FIRST!

-Check with your venue to ensure you are allowed to use the fireworks/sparklers

– Know all the rules and regulations involved in using these fireworks and sparklers.

-Fire can be very dangerous! Be safe.

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.

November 13, 2015 / no comments

Everyone loves wedding decorations. Whenever I meet a new bride, the number ONE item on the list to discuss is the wedding décor! The excitement makes me smile all the time!  And because we are wedding planners, we get asked “Do you decorate my wedding venue as well?”

Ottawa Wedding Decorator

Wedding planners and wedding designers/stylists/decorators have different roles that they play when it comes to your big day! A wedding planner works with the bride and groom for the year leading up to the wedding, making all the big plans that will ensure that your wedding is as smooth as possible. We bring with us the skills and knowledge to plan a flawless wedding as well as gathering the right team and vendors to ensure your vision comes to life.

On the day of the wedding, we are onsite as early as 9am making sure the floor plan is correct, the vendors know where to set up, everyone that was booked for the day are onsite doing what they need to do. Most of these tasks can take up to 5 hours, this almost makes it impossible to commit on decorating the hall as well. A wedding planner can recommend a professional wedding decorator or stylist to bring your wedding vision to life.

The decorator or stylist will come with all the necessary décor and team to put your vision in place. They will also provide a tear down team at the end of the day. In terms of budget, they work well with any budget depend on your needs. Your wedding planner will often recommend the best wedding decorator in the area based on your style and budget.

Love and Laughter – A Perfect Blend

August 31, 2015 / no comments

August 1st,  2015,  was Lauren Palmer and Matthew Smith’s  big day. A wedding day loaded with a lot of heart and a lot of laughter.  An ideal combination for wedding photographer, Karen, of Love and Laughter Photography. Clearly, the focus of the day reflected the personalities of this couple. There was light-hearted fun, with lots of banter and goofing around, with touches of traditional, tender- hearted moments as well. At moments like these in the reception, not even Lauren, with her wide smile, could keep a dry eye as meaningful wishes were spoken.




Their ceremony and reception were held at one of RSVP’s top venues, The Ottawa Marriott, famous for their revolving Summit Restaurant, boasting singular views of the city.

It made perfect sense, then, that the bride and her bridal party prepare at their Marriott room perched high above the city. The photos speak of the importance of family to this young couple. Not just the bridesmaids sat in the room to join in the preparation, but Lauren’s Mom and two tiny nieces sat with Grandma as well.  They watched as Clarisse Make-Up added her glamorous touches to Lauren’s beaming face and Mandy Hair create the most beautiful and intricate up do for her.  While Lauren’s oldest niece, Willa, was given a flower to pin in her short bob.


Simple, but very cute touches in the ceremony was the little flower girl, Willa Palmer, taking her job of scattering pink and purple rose petals down the aisle, very seriously.  Followed by Lauren’s two nephews, Zachary and Jackson, both shy but determined in their mission, delivering the rings to the bride and groom.


Lauren and Matthew added a more serious and personal touch:  blending their wedding colours of plum and white sand in a clear vase, representative of their hearts and lives now intertwined. Vows were exchanged and officiated by Roger and Sheila.



Lauren’s bright bouquet of complimentary colours was designed by RSVP’s partner, Beaudry Flowers.  The less conventional and vibrant mix of zinnias, roses, lisianthus with wax flowers really complimented the bride’s personality as well as her strapless white gown.

I am guessing Lauren’s cheeks hurt the next day from all the wide grins and laughter. However, Matthew also had his own fun with “the boys.” For their photo shoot, the handsome groomsmen sported grey suits, purple ties and….umbrellas!  Both open and closed, this prop switched up the standard group shots. Leaping in the air with “brollies,” open their collective expression in reminiscent of “Bert” or Dick Van Dyke, in Mary Poppins.

The couple’s fun loving antics were again then highlighted later that day.

Lauren, jokingly, brandished the cake knife like a machete and then proceeded to pretend to aim for Matthew’s neck.  Contrary to the staged drama was the elegant cake itself on a chandelier-like cake stand. The one layer white wedding cake provided by J.S. Creations, was decorated with cascading white flowers and a simple purple ribbon at the base.




Wedding Days may have many of the same elements but they are, of course, never the same. Just as Lauren and Matthew, have their unique fit, and so created a day that suited their style, RSVP keeps in mind that your wedding day needs to be as individual as you are.
