With an evening filled with dancing, surprise appearances and a performance by the bride herself, Michelle and Badan’s wedding was night to remember.

Before kicking off the festivities, the ceremony was set up at the Grand Luxe. The entryway boasted a beautiful tree and elegant decor.

Last year, we planned a Great Gatsby themed wedding for our wonderful clients, Christopher and Li Jung. The wedding took place at the Palais Royal on Lake Ontario. Here’s a feature of some of our favourite photos, all taken by Kenneth Chou.

Guests arrived to find the guest book surrounded by personal touches that really spoke to the couple’s’ personalities, especially the touching photos of family members and the artful envelop box complete with Deadpool figurines.

Guests entered the Palais Royal’s main entrance to find their names on finely decorated cards.

The head table showcased glittery gold linens that dazzled the eye, while the golden light of the candles set the tone for the evening.

Each table was marked by a candle with a glittery gold number, another Great Gatsby touch.

Tables alternated with high and short centerpieces, which gave the room texture and allowed for beautiful golden stands to be seen.

Guest tables continued with the romantic colour scheme, through the deep blue linens that stood out even amongst the gold fixtures.

The wedding cake and Ferrero Rocher® display only added more gold touches.

Let’s not forget about the bride’s own details, staying true to her colour scheme and theme.

We were interviewed on Thursday by Globalnews.ca about Earlymoon and Babymoon. I think most people are familiar with the term “Babymoon”, so what is an “Earlymoon”?  Earlymoon is referred as a quick getaway before the wedding to relax and recharge.

Couples usually spend around 200-250 hours on planning a wedding, and that is without the assistance of a wedding planner or a wedding day of coordinator.  It consumes a lot of their free time and it can be very emotional.  Planning a wedding can also be stressful when dealing with family and bridal party drama.  When we work with our clients, we often remind them to take time off from talking about weddings on their to-do list, whether it is a date night, or a short getaway to spend time together. Check out this article on what we said about babymoon and earlymoon.
