Happy New Year and it is wedding planning season! In the year of 2020, we will try to keep current with our posts to keep share the work that we did and also provide more tips and tricks to tackle your wedding planning.  If you just got engaged, I’m sure you are both excited and overwhelmed. Don’t worry,  we got you covered.  Like previous years, we have a list of upcoming wedding shows and open houses to help you start planning your big day.  You can check out our previous post on some wedding show tips. The wedding shows are a one-stop-shop where you can meet all the vendors at one place, however, but it can be a lot of information to digest at one time.  There are also lots of venue open houses coming up where you can see how the venue is setup for weddings and meeting their preferred vendors, which is a bit more catered and targeted.    We will also be partnering with up eventsource.ca to cover the open houses at some of the open houses.  Follow our Instagram and Eventsource account for latest updates.

Let’s start with the list of wedding shows coming up:

  • The Wedluxe Wedding Show – Sunday, January 19, 2020 at 9:00am to 5:00pm at The Carlu.  We are also giving away 2 tickets to the show together with Derek Chan Films and Peachwood Party.  This is the most luxurious wedding show in Canada and you will get to see the top wedding vendors at this show.  They have a different theme every year and be sure to take lots of photos.  You’ll be blown away by the show with lots of ideas and inspirations.  Admission is $75.00 per person.+

We’ve been so busy with the wedding season and haven’t had the time to update our blog for a while, but Wence and Andrew’s epic wedding definitely need a big shoutout and deserves a blog post on its own.  Last summer we had the pleasure of planning Wence and Andrew’s beautiful wedding at Arlington Estates. It was a gorgeous day filled with family, friends, fun and fireworks! All photos captured by the talented Joee Wong. The wedding attire was spectacular, from the shoes to the jewelry.

The ladies got ready in their customized robes, showcasing their hair done by Katerine Rapoport.

Meanwhile the guys were all ready to head over to Arlington for the big day.

Let’s not forget about the traditional attire, and this gorgeous couple that rocked it.

And finally, the dress! Wence was stunning in this off the shoulder gown.

And what wedding would be complete without rings? Here’s a close-up of the amazing set:

As we mentioned, the wedding took place completely at Arlington Estates in Klienburg, Ontario. The secluded venue offered lush greenery, large grounds and amble space for the ceremony and reception to take place.

Not to mention the backdrop that tied the whole head table look together.

Plus, the dance floor by Axe Media Group tied together the geometric shapes on the tables and in the backdrop display.

The beauty is in the details, like this welcome table and welcome sign.

We had some happy guests, but it’s doubtful that any guests were happier than the couple’s three dogs who all made their ceremony debut.

What better way to end the perfect day than with fireworks? One of the great things about Arlington Estates is the ability to have fireworks to end your wedding day off with a big display. These fireworks were provided by Pyro World, and had all the guests gathered in awe.

This day wouldn’t have been possible without our amazing team of vendors:
