Montreal High Style Dessert Tables

As many of you know, I'm a bit obsessed with styling sweets. There's something about placing yummy treats in a way that makes them even more tantalizing that just makes me... want to eat up everything on the table! 

I recently got a bit of a sweet tooth and decided to put together a few new designs. I design depending on my mood and here I was feeling very...hmmmm...angelic?! I wanted everything to look very clean and calm (whatever that means). I commissioned some of my fav Montreal Sweets peeps and well, voilĂ !

Montreal Real Wedding: Lisa and Pierre

Hello peeps,

 It wasn't long after  I had met Lisa and Pierre that they were walking through one of my weddings at Entrepot Dominion to help them find a perfect fit venue. Almost a year later, it hit me when I was placing the bathroom baskets, (oddly enough) that it was the actual day we had been planning for so many months. If you don't already know this, I am emotionally invested in my clients and so the BIG day is always a special one for me  (such a cry baby!) When I saw Lisa at the ceremony, I could hardly keep it together, but when the music hit play and it was her turn to walk down the aisle.... I lost it!

{They passed out cookies to all their friends and incorporated eating them into the ceremony. a cookie! photo: Blushing Bride}

A word about the photogs. I can't stress enough, the importance of hiring an amazing photographer for your wedding. When the nights all wrapped up and the last guest has stumbled out... you'll want much more than the drunken pictures your friends snapped throughout the night. HIRE SOMEONE GREAT. Yes it is expensive, but a wedding just is. Don't cut corners when it comes to the most important aspect of the wedding. Documenting it! Hellllloooo!

Lisa and Pierre hired Blushing Bride Studios. Good call. These guys did an awesome job. and are such a pleasure to work with. Head by Chelsea Gray, the company is young, energetic and really great at what they do. Take a look at some of the images from the wedding.

Wishing Lisa and Pierre all the happiness they deserve! {just a side note- Lisa ran into Snookie on her honeymoon in Italy! SNOOKIE! (yes I watch jersey shore)}

Montreal Wedding Week

Hi Hi,

I was in and out of sleep all day today...with a little shopping in the middle (a bit of an after wedding tradition). This week has been a big one for us at Principal Planner. With 4 events (all leading up to Saturday's big wedding), starting with a rehearsal dinner at Bunanotte, a welcome cocktail at Restaurant L'autre Version, a rooftop cocktail at the Nelligan Hotel and the wedding itself at the Loft Hotel. Ummm... I'm tired just writing all that out. ouf!

I felt inspired to write a little post today about how it all went.  The couple arrived from NYC on sunday with guests following suit as of Monday. From the welcome baskets to every detail leading us up to the main event, this couple did not cut any corners when it came to wowing their friends who flew out from all corners of the world.

Every event went without a single glitch and the main event was so incredibly amazing that I really can't get over it. I wanted to write everyone and formally thank all the vendors who were a part of making this all happen. My team, (girls.. you know who you are) never seizes to amaze me. We work for days at a time on each event and sometimes they are running around for up to 18 hours and they NEVER say a single thing. (seriously)

Anyways.. enough talk.  A huge thank you to the LOFT hotel, Celebrations(rentals), Fleurs Des Jardins, Lorena Rossi (stationary + favours), The Fairmont Queen Elizabeth (catering), Kostar (lighting), Paul Chacra's 1945 (band), Paul Chacra Entertainment (trio+dj), SucrĂ© by Principal Planner (dessert table), Luisa Galuppo (cake), and Phototerra (photographer) for a night made for the books. Wow.

Can't wait to share pictures with you all of the actual day. This post feels like one of those Oscar speeches that never ends so let me now shut my mouth. Cue the wrap it up music! :)

Gnite All!
