Sometimes I can hardly believe how lucky I am to be doing the job that I am. Every couple that invites me into their lives during this incredible exciting time is special, and I love the relationships that are created with each one throughout the planning. Every once in a while though, a couple comes along that steals my heart completely. Karley & Timon were one of those couples. They immediately welcomed me with open arms into their lives, and our year of planning was filled with some serious laughs, lots of baby cuddles, hilarious antcidotes of motherhood vs. wedding planning, and more love than I can imagine. You see, Karley & Timon decided to take on the immense task of planning their dream wedding, right after the birth of their twin boys. Combine that with also raising the sweetest 4 year old around, you could say their life was a bit hectic.
It was such an honour to be able to create this day for them, and take away all the stress that can come along with planning. The details were absolutely exquisite and will go down as one of my favourite weddings of 2015. They wanted a day all about family & friends, and we designed just that. In the afternoon, an English inspired garden party took place, with 40 of their nearest and dearest. Elegant lounge seating, gourmet food stations (like a pretzel bar!), a live string strio and gorgeous florals, all helped to set the tone. In the evening, 20 of the couples closest friends came together and experienced one of the funniest evenings I have ever witnessed! A murder mystery group took over, and entertained the guests throughout courses of the gourmet dinner. Truly a day that I will never forget.
