Last week we featured a beautiful Vintage Botanical inspired shoot created by some very talented, local artisans.
Included in the shoot were beautiful botanical cutting boards by trish & co. These handcrafted boards, made of solid walnut, are inspired by vintage educational illustrations and are made here in Canada. I couldn’t think of a more beautiful gift to receive.
So if you are having trouble deciding what to register for, let your guests know that one (or two) of these beautiful cutting boards by trish & co. would be a gift you would be proud to display at your next family gathering.
Take a look at this wonderful wedding at Steam Whistle Brewing designed by Willow Rose Events!
One of the reasons I featured this wedding is because of the unique way the photographers, Jenn and Dave Stark, have presented it. This isn’t your regular wedding slide show or photomontage, it’s a mix of still photos (programmed at different speeds), video and music creatively merged into a unique moving scrapbook a couple will cherish.
Take a look, you are going to love this technique. Make sure you see the turtle!!

Last summer Arthur K of Fusion Events helped Orly and Ken plan their wedding at the Gardiner Museum. I asked Orly a few questions about their day, this is what she had to say.
Where did you meet?
Ken and I met at work. We both work at a hospital and would often say “hello” when passing by in the halls. Over time we got to know each other better and eventually this led to our first date (June 7, 2011) at Canyon Creek near the hospital. We knew each other as acquaintances for almost 3 years before going on a date.
What is your most memorable moment?
Our most memorable moment was the “first look” which was coordinated by our photographers. It was such a special and intimate moment seeing each other for the first time. I’ll never forget walking up behind Ken, putting my arms around him and seeing his expression as he turned around to see me for the first time in my wedding dress.
What was your most unexpected moment?
When our wedding planner, Arthur Kerekes, surprised us by playing his saxophone on the dance floor. We loved this unique touch and so did our guests!
Is there anything you would have done differently?
It would have been helpful to create “Thank You” signs in advance for us to use as photo props, as this would have made it a lot easier to select photos to use for our thank you cards!

On Sunday I had the pleasure of attending The Sultan’s Tent bridal open house and I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was.
If you are still looking for a venue for your wedding, shower or engagement party consider The Sultan’s Tent or BerBer Social.
Upstairs at The Sultan’s Tent dine on traditional dishes in intimate alcoves while belly dancers entertain your guests. Downstairs at BerBer Social you can seat all your guests at the banquet table down the centre of the room. After a authentic Moroccan meal, lounge on the couches that line the walls.
So give your guests the gift of an experience they will never forget, book the Sultan’s Tent or BerBer Social for your next wedding celebration.
