adding a personal touch

To add a very personal and special touch to your save the dates, invitations, and thank yous, why don’t you take one of your engagement photos and order stamps? It has become increasingly popular and very easy to order stamps with an image selected by you.

Two of these examples from Zazzle the american source for stamps, for Canadian’s here is Canada Post’s link.


Well a couple of weeks ago I meandered into my favorite store Ikea. We all know the classic $1.99 vase that appear at quite a few weddings but what else do they have to offer? Tons. I found so many cute little items that could make their way into your beautiful wedding.
How about these little lanterns? They would make a beautiful aisle, or center piece. How about in a row lining a shelf, alternating with some small vases with single stems? So chic, simple, and in expensive! ($3.99 CAN)


These are some absolutely adorable little vases that I had to keep from making their way into my basket. They come in some fun colors too! Cluster three together in the centre of a table with different colored flowers. Simple and again so beautiful!




There are also these small bowls found in the kitchen section that come in the same white, green, and I thought I had seen them in a dark purple that could easily serve as a vase for a floating flower. If you have rectangle tables place these in-between larger arrangements that run down the middle or candles. 


And how about using something a little bit more unique than your standard clear tea light holder. They have super fun colors and designs in that could brighten up your evening. Ikea tea lights.


May 9th: Sheldon & Victoria


Wow what a fabulous day! Sheldon and Victoria were married on May 9th at Blue Meadow’s and their reception was also held.  It was an absolutely gorgeous facility, and the day held out fairly well for the wedding. Victoria’s uncle built the stage and gazebo especially for the wedding in her wedding colors of brown and cream (rustic theme).  Elegant Affairs Catering provided the fabulous  meal. The stunning yet simple cake was created by Sheldon’s very tallented sister. But the talent in the family didn’t stop there,  Sheldon was very creative in creating the beautiful candle holders constructed from basic logs creating a rustic and simple center pieces.

Victoria was adorn with Sheldon’s grandma’s pearls, which suited her very well. Her shoes were absolutly stunning as well, but alas I do not have a photo of them! Jaidyn, their very beautiful and adorable little girl, was in a cute little dress tied with a brown ribbon. She  was involved the in ceremony to celebrate them coming together as a family – a truly beautiful family! I can’t believe how much energy she put out near the end of the night parting harder than most of the adults! Moby Disk provided the music and entertainment that kept the couple and their guests on the dance floor till close!

Sheldon and Victoria couldn’t stop gleaming with huge smiles! They are a truely beautiful and loving couple that deserve the very best, and I wish them all the happiness in the world that they truly deserve!

etsy finds

Two more fabulous finds on etsy! How about these beautiful stars? You could use them in center piece by hanging them from tree branches. Or how about strung from the ceiling??




And what a beautiful ring pillow, it’s just fabulous. The color is so beautiful and soft, it would make an elegant touch to your special day!

Two weekends ago I met up with Haley and Michael from Shandro Photo to get the first hand experience. They took a few photos of myself and my husband. They were so much fun to work with and extremely creative! I can hardly wait to work with them again in September!
