Sihan & Yufeng’s (Frank) wedding was a beautiful day of family and friends. They prioritized each other and time to with their guests with an intimate wedding of 60 guests. They chose one of the smaller spaces within the @fairmontlaurier called Quebec and Tudor suites to capture the “old estate” vibes. The ceremony space was like a large mansion living room and then the reception space felt like we were in the formal dining room of a manor on a country estate while actually being right downtown Canada’s nation’s capital!
Thank you to all the vendors who made the magic

I will never be over this one.
Danielle & Zee, June 2024.

🩷From the beginning I was in love with their vision for a weekend wedding at a favourite holiday spot for Danielle’s family @fairmontmontebello. They wanted both families and all their friends to be gathering at this special place for a whole weekend together.

🧡A welcome party on the Friday led into a beautiful wedding day. With ceremony by the water, cocktail hour at the Outaouais room terrace and foyer and then a completely transformed Outaouais room.

💛So many special touches throughout the day including watercolour designs by Danielle’s maid of honour @julieeneuu, the couples dogs Pippa and Rory were integrated into some key designs as well.

💚There is just too much to tell about this one so I am working on a blog article as we speak to try and capture it all.

💙Huge thank yous to all the vendors who made this possible. I know I say this all the time but being a Planner, I am only as good as those I surround myself with including my one of a kind, caring team.

🩷It is our sweet Cara’s birthday today!🩷

Let me tell you a bit about this girl. She is so organized and thorough, doesn’t miss a fork out of place or a misaligned chair but is also so kind and warm with all our couples.

I always get compliments on her demeanor from obviously our couples but also from their parents and wedding party.

She is also damn funny and loves to joke around and think up hilarious reel ideas. Her warmth is literally palpable on a wedding day so she is an absolute JOY to have around.

I am so dang lucky that she sent me a random email and of all the emails I get something about her stood out and here we are going into her second wedding season with her on my team.

So drop a happy birthday emoji 🎂🥂 for this awesome human and let’s make her feel extra special today, her last birthday as a SINGLE LADY since this is also the year she says “I DO”.

Happy 3rd anniversary to these two.
2021 was a TOUGH year for weddings. The hoops we had to jump through to make a small wedding happen was unbelievable.
Now they are happily married with a new little man in their lives too 🩵
Wishing these two all the love.
Drop a 🥂🥂 to congratulate them!

As soon as I saw @lebelvedereweddings do the #splashtrend, I sent it to my team and we all volunteered Farhan of course. After a wedding in Montebello, while I was with our lovely couple the rest of them conspired and set this up. One take was all they had so it had to be perfect. I think Cara and Gracie had a bit too much fun waterboarding poor Farhan. His sinuses are still recovering.

Comment and let poor Farhan know it was worth it.

A little story about Danielle and Zee for you who are getting married today! Danielle`s Mom and Dad are from Ottawa and were high school sweethearts, her Dad Terry played for the OHL before realizing he wanted to pursue post secondary education. They raised Danielle in Ottawa until both parents` jobs called them for positions in the US. Danielle went to Dickinson College where she met Zee and became COLLEGE sweethearts. Even though this family lives in the US, their hearts belong in Canada, and since @fairmontmontebello holds so many special family memories, this HAD to be the spot to host their wedding weekend 💖
So all their friends and family traveled here to come together to celebrate these two finally getting married!
So drop a 🥂🥂 to congratulate these two awesome people and say a little prayer for no rain today 🙏🏼 🌞

What gets me is this touch of blue in the gorgeous envelope liner! Who even knew about envelop liners right?? Now that you know you CAN`T unknow. This is how I feel about so many things in wedding planning. Once you know about a detail or a moment or something that can go right vs wrong ... it`s like a curse.
Name something below that`s like that for you, something you can`t unsee / not do now.

🩵Arianne + Francois` 🩵 National Arts Centre ( NAC) wedding was pure luxury and family.
The white wedding with a touch of gold and a hint of blue was absolutely gorgeous.
They have been together for a long time so they deserved an amazing day.
Drop a 🥂🥂 to congratulate the newlyweds!

Pretty in purple! This year we are seeing more colour in our weddings and the spring season started with this lovely lilac wedding for Kendra & Andrew!
What do you think? Are you brave enough to add in colour or are you a lover of the white wedding?

What kind of wedding are you picturing for yourself? Probably the words I hear the most describing what a couple wants are romantic, timeless and elegant. Well Kathleen and Alexander`s Stonefields Estate was just that!
Working with the beautiful white and neutral backdrop of the venue and adding in a touch of navy and warm whites, they had the day of their dreams!

💜Kendra + Andrew’s 💜 Chateau Laurier classic wedding was a great way to kick off our wedding season.
From the soft pastel lilac tones in the florals and the bridesmaids gowns, this colour palette worked perfectly in the newly renovated Drawing room.
Such a sweet and loving couple, perfect Sunday wedding!

You need THIS reminder....
If you want to feel happy, relaxed and truly have the best day ever you need to not micromanage and run around like crazy.
Instead:
🩵 Be present.
🩵 Leave the details to your vendor team.
🩵 Enjoy every moment with the people you love.
🩵 Slow your day down by taking moments alone.
And remember...
🩵 This is the one time in your life where everyone you love will be in one room.🩵

🍾Ding for Dom 🍾This was by far our most popular cocktail hour station EVER. Guests went absolutely wild for it.

🥂 But behind the white glove was a very well prepared station and server from @fairmontlaurier making this magic a reality.

⬇️ Now TELL us what would you "Ding" for?
