The Weekend Roundup

L&P-Roundup
L&P-Roundup

It's been a couple of weeks since the last Weekend Roundup...what can I say...things are moving faster than I imagined they ever could! lol!! But it has been an AMAZING last couple of weeks, filled with 2 very special weddings!!  And this past weekend, I got to spend the day wearing flip flops on the beach (definitely a first for me while working a wedding), and hanging out with some seriously fun people!  Lisa & Phil's wedding at The Beach House Restaurant, was nothing short of spectacular, and made even better by the non-stop smiles these two had for each other all day!!  And working alongside FLEURtacious by Lynda Marie, DJ Pro Ron Larson, Orriss Films and Jon-Mark Photography was the cherry on top!! And here are a few awesome sneak peek's from Jon Mark Photography...

Maren & Ben

Working on Maren & Ben's wedding, at the stunning Inn at Laurel Point, was a wedding planners dream come true!  Not only were they an incredibly sweet and gracious couple, (with THE BEST sense of humour!) but they had an obvious appreciation for quality, and were totally committed to ensuring that their guests had an amazing time! Which is, in my opinion, the best priority to have! Originally from Germany, Maren had many guests travelling to Victoria for their wedding, and wanted to make sure that they were made to feel right at home.  So with a nod to their international theme, amazing custom Passport invitations, were designed by the extremely talented Tuktu Paper Co.  Many of the paper goods by Tuktu, were done in both English & German, including my favourite, the Bi-lingual Phrases to know/Escort card.  It had the basics, like "My name is...", and "Do you know the Bride/Groom", and then the super handy ones like, "My room number is...." and "I've had too much to drink. Please don't take me seriously" (which in case you were wondering, is "Ich habe zu viel getrunken, nimm mich bitte nicht ernst." in German)

Dahlia's and Baby's-breath were the flowers of choice, and were the perfect fit for the soft grey, pink & green colour palette;  Clare Day Flowers went above and beyond to deliver some of the most romantic and fresh florals around! And to top it all off, pink and blue slippers were provided to all the guests, to ensure that they could party the night away to Jason Cook's band, The Adults!! A HUGE thank you to the wickedly talented, Jon-Mark Photo, for the fabulous photo's below!  And thank you to Maren & Ben, for asking me to be a part of your wedding!  I had the most incredible time working with you both on the planning and design, and couldn't have asked for a more lovely Bride & Groom!

2013 in Review

Another year has come and gone, and I find myself, once again, looking back at all the great (and not so great! lol!) moments of 2013!  Overall, it was an incredible year, and I am beyond grateful for everyone that helped make 2013 a stellar year for FKE!  This past year brought many new couples to the FKE family, and I am so honoured that we got to be a part of so many weddings and events.  Thank you so much to all the newlyweds (and soon to be newlyweds) out there, for welcoming me into your lives and allowing me to be a part of such a huge time in your life!  It means the world to me!! This past year, also brought some amazing inspiration projects, alongside some incredible vendors!!  Junebug Weddings, Grey Likes Weddings, and On to Baby were gracious enough to feature some of these fun projects. I also had the privilege of joining the extremely coveted, Style Me Pretty's Little Black Book, as well as the always inspiring Once Wed Blog's, vendor list.  Seriously...pinch me now!!!  This past Fall was spent working closely with the extremely talented Laura, of Tuktu Paper Co., on some fabulous branding paper goods for me.  I cannot WAIT to share them with all of you, and so stay tuned for a new branding post, coming soon.  And last, but definitely not least, I am so so soooo grateful for all of my industry friends, new and old, who continuously blow me away with their kindness, graciousness, and talent!!  We had so much fun all partying together at the 1st ever Victoria Wedding Industry Meetup, and I cannot wait to do so again, for many years to come!!

So, without further adieu, here's a roundup of some of my favourite moments over the past year, and here's to another fabulous year!
