do you hear the bells?

Remember that time one of our beautiful weddings was printed as a feature in Wedding Bells magazine?! We do! Now available on newsstands across the country, the 2018 Spring/Summer issue of Wedding Bells features the details of our clients Ashley and Mitch's journey in planning their "East Coast" (aka. Townie) wedding :) My work was primarily with Ashley via email leading up to her big day. She came to me with a great color palette and lots of ideas for the decor and together we designed a pretty little set up for their celebration at Yellowbelly Public House on Water Street here in St. John's, NL. Some of our rentals, paired with her projects, and accented with beautiful florals by the talented folks at the Flower Studio, all came together to create this little piece of Newfoundland magic. 

Now let's talk about Miss Sandra Lee shall we? Sandra Lee Photography took all of the photos that you will see in high gloss print on page 104 & 105 (btw). You've already picked it up and are thumbing through the pages now, right? Right?! ;) She's got skillz that are so chic that one of the editors from Wedding Bells sent us both a message asking permission to use them for a feature in an upcoming print issue. We squealed with delight and connected her with the bride for all of the dazzling details behind her inspiration for planning a East Coast wedding from the big smoke (the couple is currently living in Toronto, Ontario).

What fun it is to see your very own handy work in a national publication. It has been a dream of mine for quite some time now and has been just phenomenal seeing it come to fruition. I am beyond grateful for beautiful clients like Ashley and Mitch that trust our skills and expertise to bring their wedding day vision to life, and of course to the true talented of amazing local photographers like Sandra Lee Photography for making them shine in the best way possible. Thank you to my amazing team that pulled together this fab look while I was across the street working on another wedding at the Merchant Tavern that same day, and thank you so much to Kim and all of the Wedding Bells team for showing what our beautiful province has to offer and for highlighting local vendors such as ourselves and the following list of everyone else who was involved in this wedding. xo ~A

I knew the moment I sat down with Natasha that we were going to hit it off. Newly engaged and excited to talk all things decor she excitedly shared her ideas with me and we sat together to hatch a plan to bring a white sequin wonderland to the west coast of our beautiful province. 

With three other events in the books in St. John's on the same weekend, and the assistance of the amazingly efficient staff at Humber Valley Resort, I decided to make the trip out on my own for the set up. The room was initially set for Natasha and Colin's intimate ceremony with family and friends, and then transformed into the reception set up for the bevvy and boogie portion of the evening.

I was just cluing up my work when I heard rumblings of the bride and groom making a very special entrance to their reception. So I decided to stick around to get a couple snaps and boy am I glad I did (even if I was late for my dad's birthday dinner - sorry Dad)!
