Laduree Inspired Desert Table

Hi Hi,

If you don't know by now, I have a dessert table fetish. Put me in a room with a bunch of props, some sweets, a little Adele and I am in heaven. Working on this next shoot was a serious dream come true. Not only did I work with a group of EXTREMELY talented vendors including miss Caketress herself, I had one of my best friends there to shoot it all. {Monique Simone Photography}. 

Laduree is a house of macarons and delish pastries. So delish that standing outside in the freezing cold is completely worth it and spending close to three dollars on a little macarons is also every bit worth it. Everything about the brand makes me swoon so it was only be natural to pay homage and create a sweet table with them at the heart of it. Take a look at all this eye candy. oh and FYI: Amy Atlas the queen of dessert tables herself featured this beautiful table today {check it out}. What a way to share this inspiration with the world. Thank you to everyone included. 

One last thing... if you haven't made the trip to Laduree, you have no idea what you are missing.

A Bright Colour Palette: Wedding Design Inspiration

Hi Hi!

With the New Year in full swing and wedding season just around the corner, we are starting to get into the fun stuff. The Designs! This is hands down my favorite part of the whole wedding planning process. 

I haven't shared these images yet and so I thought, the perfect blog post would be one that offers a cool colour palette with fresh inspiration for all you quirky couples. Always remember when designing your big day that it has to reflect who you are as a couple and NOT what the magazines say is the big trend. Nothing is more timeless than yourself, so be true to that and you will always look back at your wedding and think... yes... that's soooo us! have fun!

Isabella + Andreas: A Principal Planner Wedding

Hi hi,

So it's official. 2012 has begun and we can all start breaking our new year's resolutions!! :P
We have so many exciting weddings to design for the upcoming season that we make girly noises daily just thinking about them! Before all that happens though we thought... how about we finally show one of the most romantic weddings we have ever had the pleasure of being a part of?!

It happened in summer 2010 at a hillside sugar shack in the Eastern Townships, in a barn and under a tent.  Along side my good friend Monique {Monique Simone Photography}, we spent the day with a couple who by that day had become our friends. We watched them get married, cry, laugh, eat, drink and even go streaking! {seriously, one of the groomsmen... took off ALL items of clothing and ran through the dance floor with all his mama gave him}. Truly an experience we will forever remember!

FYI: This beautiful couple is the duo behind one of my fav cinematography boutiques here in mtl, Eye Heart Films. If you need a video for your wedding that will really be a time-capsule of your love...well...look no further. Call them up! Take a look at their wedding day.
