Montreal Wedding: Loft hotel


You may remember a few months back we talked briefly about Tatyana and Chris's english garden inspired wedding. They got married in the most beautiful reception ever and we were the lucky planners to design and bring it all together! Today's an exciting day for T+C. The gorgeous wedding we all got to live is now featured on Style Me Pretty Canada. Take a look at some of the beautiful images from their wedding and click here to view the feature up on SMP.

Marions- Nous 2011 Design: Babies Breath Centerpiece

Hi Hi,

This past labour day weekend, we had two weddings and a wedding show!! Our saturday wedding at the Westin Hotel was so stunning, we decided to tweak the colours a bit {pink a la Azar} and re-create the table top design for our show display. People went nuts over this table. Simple, elegant and oh so romantic! 

The use of baby's breath, still shocks people. When you want a big wow factor, but don't have a million dollars to spend, baby's breath is a good alternative. Please don't quote me on its a cheap centerpiece... it's actually NOT {when used in large quantities}, but your money goes a very long way and you are left with a stunner. For you brides who want that big ball effect... please, please, please, keep the fake flower ball centerpieces to a minimum. I cringe. Instead, opt for a more affordable solution that will leave your guests inspired. 
Here's a closer look at our design.

A chance to sit down with 2012 couples. We had music, we had treats and we had some amazing brides and grooms come chat the afternoon away. Here's a sneak peak of a: our open house and b: the first look into our new studio where monique takes all her gorgeous pics and I plan all things pretty! For all 2012 bookings- contact us for your free consultations at or call us at 514.884.3418!
Live music to set the tone. (we love you Josh!)

Loft Hotel Wedding: Erika and Adam

Hi Hi,

August 27th, we had the immense pleasure of taking part in a beautiful wedding for Erika and Adam. When I met them (exactly one year prior to their wedding day), we clicked right away. I knew these guys were going to be awesome to work with and I am very rarely wrong about these things. The night was perfection, from the tearful ceremony to the groom getting on stage and playing the guitar with the band!! What an incredible night at the Loft Hotel! Official wedding photos from Phototerra will be posted soon, but for your viewing pleasure, here are some detail pictures taken for us by the awesome Bartek and Magda. :)

Open House: Principal Planner meet and greet


It's crazy to think how fast time has flown this year. Our busiest season EVER has come and is still going, but 'tis the time of the year where we are meeting with newly engaged couples for 2012! This past weekend we had 2 gorgeous weddings AND a wedding show. In this case the WE refers to Monique Simone Photography and Principal Planner. 

As you may know, Monique is one of my closest and dearest friends. Not only is she my go to person for everything in life, she is an amazing photographer. We worked together all weekend and even shot a creative at the studio today. Basically we are attached at the hip and loving it. Monique and I share a  gorgeous  studio in Verdun. This sunday we are hosting an open house for all you 2012 couples who are eager to start planning the IT wedding of the year. We are so excited to meet every single one of you! Below you will find the invite. Please email me directly if you rather a one on one  meeting.{}

I'll be creating a beautiful dessert table a la Principal Planner for all you sweets lovers. See you there!
