Happy May, it is finally starting to feel like spring here in Halifax and I couldn't be happier.
When I first started working with Lauren, on her wedding I instantly knew, this was going to be one of the most beautiful and stunning fall weddings ever!! With Lauren's exceptional taste and eye for beautiful things, helping plan her and Clayton's perfect day was the most fun!!
Their wedding will forever hold a special place in my heart because this was my favourite and most emotional reception reveal I have ever had.
For all of our weddings, as the bridal parties are in their hotel rooms or homes getting ready for what the day will bring, the EP team and other vendors are working away creating the most beautiful reception spaces. After the couple has said their "I do's" and make their way back to the reception venue from getting photos taken, we always like to give them a sneak peak of the completed, fully decoration reception space - with all the tables set, decor pieces out and flowers all around.
This gives the couple a moment to take in all the hard work and decor planning we have put in over the prior months (sometimes even years) before it's filled with all their family & friends.
As Lauren, Clayton and the rest of the bridal party came through the side door of Pier 21 all I could hear were instant "Ouuuuu"s and "ahhhhh"s. When I looked over to Lauren, her eyes were filling up with happy tears, as she came to give myself and Katelyn the biggest hugs!! I think it was safe to say she loved it ;)
And how could she not with Chelsea Lee Flowers stunning high floral arrangements on every beautifully decorated table. Macfarlands glass charger plates, Elegant Paper Co. place cards and NFLD Chocolate Factories chocolate perfectly placed at each setting. And of course Just Iced Custom Cakes four tiered cake covered with elegant sugar flowers. With twinkle lights glowing up the beams and floating candles on the tables, all made for a romantic, fall wedding.
The room was not the only beautiful aspect of this wedding. I must mention how STUNNING Lauren looked on her wedding day. In her elegant sweetheart strapless gown, her perfectly placed hair by Jessica Fletcher and her face glowing thanks to Chantelle Brown, she topped of this gorgeous bridal look with jaw-dropping blue Louboutins. Hind Hart Studios and Arrow & Knot Productions captured her beauty and the rest of the night so perfectly.
One of my favourite parts of my job (which there are so many) is making my couple's visions come to life and there is no better feeling than knowing I have accomplished this. I cannot wait for what the 2018 wedding season will bring, I know I have so many more beautiful receptions I am eager to start decorating.
Lauren & Clayton you are such a perfect match for each other, I feel so lucky to have met you both and I wish you all the best in what is to come next.
