Currently Inspired by: Edition 10

We've been talking a lot about design in the office lately. There are some exciting renovations happening to the office, and we are already looking for design inspiration for our 2018 clients. When it comes to finding inspiration, we like to expand our sources from the event world and into other areas like the interior design scene and the fashion runways! We often discover that the new trends we see in other areas slip into the event world too. See below for what is currently inspiring us!

Wallpaper
Barb has been designing her new home, and it has sparked some inspiration for our event decor too! Wallpaper is once again cool, and we think it is a perfect way to create an accent wall or even a temporary backdrop. We can see these making amazing photobooth or head table backdrops.

Long-Sleeve Dresses
As we enter the fall and winter wedding season, we have been admiring long sleeve dresses. They are elegant and classy, yet sexy at the same time!

Ocean Accents
Anyone from the west coast (like us) probably have a soft spot for the sea! We love incorporating the natural elements from our environment into wedding decor- ie. sea glass table numbers or driftwood centrepieces.

Real Wedding: Jennifer & Girish

Real Wedding: Jennifer & Girish

Sometimes a wedding comes along that hits all the right notes.  The couple, their family, the vision, the vendors....and the party.  Oh, the party....  Jen & Girish's wedding in July 2016 was just one of those weddings, and I still get goosebumps (and a huge smile on my face) every time I look through the gorgeous images taken by The Nickersons.  And if having just the best clients ever, who know how to seriously party isn't enough, this wedding was just recently published in the Summer/Fall issue of Real Weddings Magazine!  Talk about a pinch me moment!  Seeing this wedding in print was a dream come true, and I am so grateful to all of the people involved who made this wedding as spectacular as it was.  

Now, let's talk about this wedding, shall we?  I began working with Jen & Girish in the late Summer of 2015.  Jen had dreams of hosting a black tie, classic wedding at her Grandparents property, and an even bigger dream of a massive tent in the middle of an even more massive field.  Over the course of the next year, these dreams became a reality, and I couldn't be more thrilled with the results.  Being the western celebration for these 2 (they also hosted an Indian wedding in India back in the Winter), we knew we wanted to have splashes of their Indian culture, while still keeping things fairly classic.  Show stopping Moroccan lanterns were sourced to hang in the tent, and custom paisley linens were designed by the Bride's mother herself.  Music, a big priority for the couple, played a large role throughout the entire day.  Side One worked their magic, and not only created the biggest dance party of the season, but also helped to pull off some amazing surprises, such as Jen & the Bridesmaids dance for Girish, and a re-creation of an Indian dance that the guests performed for the family, from the couples Indian wedding.  Looking through these photos, I'm hands down not lying when I say that the ones that give me the biggest smile are the ones from the dance floor!

The florals, designed & executed by the one and only Vanessa of Verbena Floral Design, were utter perfection.  With a classic palette of white & green (with the smallest hint of blush), Vanessa created stunning piece after piece, all of which that highlighted the natural beauty of our setting.  And the silk ribbons on the girls bouquets?  Talk about dreamy!  

Every vendor involved in this wedding brought their A-game, and I am so grateful that we got to be a part of this incredible celebration!  So, if you haven't yet picked up your copy of Real Weddings, make sure to do so soon!  And I welcome you to sit back, and relax as you scroll through some of my favourite images from the day below.   xo

This summer is flying by but we are constantly keeping an eye out for the latest trends, and discussing our predictions for what is going to be huge in the 2018 wedding season at the office. What do you think will be the hot new upcoming trends?!

Take a looksie at what we are currently loving...

Unique Spaces
We love venues with a unique twist like art galleries, restaurants, and rooftops. We always suggest to think about beautiful spaces in your community, and if you ask them, they just may rent it out to you!

Wedding Capes
Capes aren't just for superheroes! We have been obsessed with wedding capes ever since Camille Style's producer Chanel rocked one at her French Chateau wedding.

Hello August!! So lovely to see you... but seriously, where did June and July go? They felt like 2 seconds long. Despite time flying, we have so many gorgeous weddings under our belt this summer so far, and we aren't slowing down! We are entering the second half of wedding season fully inspired by what we've seen thus far and the amazing couples that we've shared those weddings with. There has been lots of laughs, sweat, and at our last wedding... mosquito bites!! Those little devils.
