Ellie & Alexandre’s Greek Winter Wedding

Posted on 3 December 2017 | No responses

Montreal Wedding Planner, Montreal Wedding Planning, Wedding Planner Montreal, Montreal Weddings, An English Rose, An English Rose Wedding Planner, Rachel Cripps-Gervais, Eastern Townships Wedding Planner, Wedding Planner Eastern Townships, Eastern Townships Weddings, Eastern Townships Wedding Planning, Montreal Wedding Day Coordinator, Montreal Destination Wedding, Montreal Same Sex Weddings, Old Montreal Wedding, Sophie Asselin Photographie, Elm Ridge Country Club, Sweet Couture Cakes, Ambiance Limousine, Absolut Disco, Ellie & Alexandre are native’s of Montreal but have been living and working in California, so we worked together planning their Montreal Destination Wedding remotely and the couple chose the US Thanksgiving weekend for their special day!

Ellie had a lot of fun with her girls and chose beautiful purple dresses with grey fur shrugs for the shoulders, but adding a little humour by letting them wear an array of colours for their shoes – and even Ellie in a stunning white wedding dress chose very cute flat ‘reds’ for her shoes too!  We also went with more of the natural Whites & Greens for the floral arrangements to showcase the colours of the bridesmaids.  But of course Ellie’s bouquet was more in line with the ‘reds’ she so loves!

On the morning of the wedding Ellie and Alexandre sent each other romantic notes to read just before they did the “First Look” pictures in Old Montreal which I personally think is a great idea – it gives the couple that special moment when they see each other for the first time without everyone around and they get un-rushed time for couple shots before the ceremony.  Of course there is the added bonus of being able to enjoy the cocktail hour and mingle with their guests too!

The Greek wedding ceremony was held at the Ste Constantine & Helene Church in Dollard-des-Ormeaux and upon leaving the church the guests threw traditional rice over the couple who were then whisked away in a vintage Rolls Royce to the Elm Ridge Country Club in Ile Bizard where a roaring fireplace was waiting for them for guests to enjoy during the cocktail hour!

The place cards were set up in the main entrance of the club and Ellie & Alexandre had bought with them these very cute wooden hearts to decorate the place cards… they continued this with the Polaroid Guest Signing Book and also a Photo booth later in the evening.   On the Table of Honor they also had wooden “Mr & Mrs” signs and decorated with babies breath to match the bridesmaids crowns while guests had tall Calla Lily arrangements on their tables.

Ellie and Alexandre decided to have a cup cake tower as their wedding cake, with a single tier monogrammed with their initials!  Guest received both Maple Syrup and Greek Candies as their favors and for the sweet table there was a mix of Greek Pastries with what else but a Poutine & Smoked Meat Station!

Now what would be a Greek Wedding without some Greek dancing… they also had some adorable dancers in traditional costumes to entertain the guests and then of course a few “ouzo” shots for the guests to enjoy!!  After that, all that was left was a lot of dancing till the end of the night!!

“Rachel from An English Rose was such a pleasure to work with as we were planning the most important day of our lives. We could not have asked for a more suitable wedding planner!

Rachel was able to help us plan our beautiful wedding from a distance, since we lived in another country. She planned flexible skype meetings to accommodate our busy working schedule. She is professional, an excellent communicator and is there 100% for her clients.

She helped us find the most wonderful vendors and all within our budget!!! She kept us on track with her many checklists that were fundamental in keeping us organized.

Thank you Rachel for making wedding planning SO much easier and less stressful! We really appreciate all your guidance, support and organization. We would recommend Rachel to anyone looking for a professional and competent wedding planner!”

Montreal Wedding Vendor Interview: Tony & Randi from The Directors Showband!

Posted on 27 November 2017 | No responses

Video by IND Films Montreal

This month we are highlight Tony & Randi from The Directors Showband and Direct Entertainment Group who we have worked with now for many years without a hitch!  It is not only their Montreal Wedding Planner, Montreal Wedding Planning, Wedding Planner Montreal, Montreal Weddings, An English Rose, An English Rose Wedding Planner, Rachel Cripps-Gervais, Eastern Townships Wedding Planner, Wedding Planner Eastern Townships, Eastern Townships Weddings, Eastern Townships Wedding Planning, Montreal Wedding Day Coordinator, Montreal Destination Wedding, Montreal Same Sex Weddings, The Directors Showband, Direct Entertainment Group, Montreal Wedding Bandprofessionalism and pure joy for what they do that makes them a success, but their ease to work with and knowing from my perspective that I do not have to worry, everything will be taken care of on the day without a hitch – so peace of mind for both myself and my clients!!

What made you start a band / entertainment company?

The band was started by band leader, Tony Picciuto.  In the beginning, there was no intention of it becoming a business, it was the sheer passion for the music that drove the success of the band.  It was a part time endeavor that rapidly grew in popularity and through the years, the band underwent many facelifts and challenging member changes.

Fast forward to 2001 when a partnership was formed between Tony Picciuto and Randi Katz that would become the driving force behind the entertainment company (Direct entertainment group) – The umbrella company to Montreal’s most sought after showband, The Directors.  “Direct Entertainment Group happened because there was a lack of connection between the buyer and the musician. “ says Katz.“ We created a new market for ourselves and the musicians that surrounded us  …”

Over the next few years, the company expanded into new markets and developed strong and lasting relationships with its clients and other suppliers in the industry.

What is the one thing you love most about performing in a band?

We love the music, the creative process, we love the comradery we share with the members in the band. Most of all we love the feeling of receiving energy back from the audience.  In the end, this is why we do it, for the love of performance.  When that energy is returned to us by a full dance floor or by simple applause, we know we have succeeded in our goal.

Do you have a specific niche of music that you provide?

We are a full variety band and by that we mean FULL VARIETY.  This includes every era, style and genre.  We pride ourselves on the ability to read any crowd and the fact that we are fully live enables us to change up the music on a dime.  We perform in many languages and offer a wide range of styles so that every audience member goes home satisfied.

What are the biggest mistakes couples make when choosing their wedding Band?

Maybe the best way to ask this question is what is the biggest mistake a couple makes when planning their wedding.

Let’s put it this way, a typical wedding lasts from 5:00 pm – 2:00 am , — approximately 7 hours. What couples fail to do is divide the amount of money they are spending by hours of the evening. How much things are costing them and how much of an impact are they actually making on an hourly basis?  What value is it bringing to their guests and the overall experience of their wedding?

Different couples may have different budgets but the experience of professional live entertainment even in the smallest formation can add elegance and distinction to the day.

Entertainment is one of the single most important elements on your wedding day and can sometimes go overlooked by certain couples.   It can literally make or break your evening.

Mistake #2: They base their decision on a video or a playlist. Not every band or DJ is suited for a wedding with different age groups.   The couple in question should go and see their band or DJ possibilities live.

Mistake #3:

Choosing price over quality.  Whether it is a trio for your engagement party, ceremony or cocktail or an all out dance band, find a quality formation that will show up on time, perform seamlessly with a good visual presentation, while working as a team alongside the other suppliers you’ve hired for your special day .

What do you think distinguishes your work from others?

Consistency, professionalism, customer service and attention to detail and 100% satisfaction from all of our clients.  In this business, you don’t get a second chance to be awesome.  Every event must be treated with as much care as the last and next ones.  We truly care about the outcome of any event we do,  from the organization, to logistics and to the overall presentation of our performances.  We truly care about what the day means to our clients and the overall experience they will have that day. There is no room for failure.

What advise can you give to the 2018 Brides & Grooms?

ENJOY YOUR DAY!!!  Hire professionals that can handle your day for you and understand your vision and are able to bring that vision beyond your expectations. Couples invest a lot of money in their day and should be able to truly enjoy it as it unfolds.

What are the music trends for 2018?

I wouldn’t really call it a trend so much as “what is trending” NOW. Music moves so fast these days.  Here today and gone tomorrow.  While there is still a demand for the new Top 40 music, classic throwbacks and nostalgic music are always winners.

A band that understands what the dance floor is asking for “in the moment” and can easily relate and adjust to the dance floor in real time, and can engage the audience  – this is what will bring your wedding to the next level.

Stephanie & Sean’s Elegant Old Montreal Wedding

Posted on 20 November 2017 | No responses

Stephanie and Sean wanted an ‘elegant’ feel to their wedding with all the décor so for the ceremony we decorated the aisles with large lanterns and candles and the alter area with a cluster of 3 cylinder vases on mirrors with floating candles to give a romantic ambiance.

Guests mingled in the beautiful atrium / library area for the cocktail hour and we had the hotel write the table plan on two large mirrors and leant them up against the brick walls.

For the Reception room, we decorated with white linens and added a white lace overlay along with elegant chair covers with a criss-cross design on the back.  The centre pieces followed through from the ceremony with a cluster of 3 cylinder vases with floating candles but with added white stones from their garden placed at the bottom and strands or orchids in the arrangements with votives around the bottom on the vases.

Table numbers were placed in silver frames and guests had the fun option of signing old original LP’s of the couple’s favourite artists, as well as be treated to bottles of maple syrup from a family farm and a wonderful Candy Bar with a few of the couple’s favourite treats!

During the evening, guests were piped through to dinner by an amazing bagpiper Jordan Anderson and then followed the salute with a shot of whisky for the piper!  The evening entertainment was provided by The Directors Showband and this was certainly a party crowed who were on the dance floor every opportunity they got!

“Hiring Rachel was the best wedding decision that we made leading up to our special day. From helping us choose the perfect vendors to successfully executing every last detail on the day of the wedding, Rachel made sure that our vision came to life flawlessly. 

With the wedding in her hands, we were able to enjoy every moment with our family and friends without stress or worry, and our entire party had an amazing time as a result. Rachel’s professionalism, kindness, flexibility, and level of organization were unparalleled, and she was always available for us when we needed planning advice.

We would strongly recommend An English Rose to any couple looking to plan the perfect wedding – Rachel and her team really go the extra mile.”

Last Sunday Elegant Wedding Magazine hosted their annual wedding show at The Windsor Ballrooms and it was packed with brides, grooms and people like me wanting to see what’s what and who’s new in the Montreal Wedding Scene.

Starting off in Le Crystal Room we came across Ma Cherie Bleue located in Rosemere who are offering Romantic Flowing Wedding Dresses / Boho style with great prices and some of their dresses coming in from Russia…. I loved the blush pink one below!  Their next trunk show will be in January offering 10% off their gowns!!  On another “Wedding Dress” note – I was surprised to learn that Le Chateau are now also offering a Wedding Boutique, there are no gowns in their stores, but you can view on line and then make an appointment to visit one on one with them!!  Now for the little ones you might want to check out Rosa Agnese Couture – Collection & Couture for the little princess!!

Walking into the Peacock Ally you cannot be impressed by Alain Simon Fleurs – the team always overdo themselves year after year and their stunning 15 ft bar centre piece certainly was a show stopper as you can see in my first picture on the blog!  We were also happy to see Le Rouge a florist that we have recently connected with too!

Montreal Wedding Vendor Interview: Anita Phillips of Creative Expressions, Montreal Wedding Stationary

Posted on 16 October 2017 | No responses

This month we are highlighting Anita Phillips of “Creative Expressions” Montreal Wedding Stationary, who I have known and worked with since I started my company back in 2007 when we were practically  Montreal Wedding Planner, Montreal Wedding Planning, Wedding Planner Montreal, Montreal Weddings, An English Rose, An English Rose Wedding Planner, Rachel Cripps-Gervais, Eastern Townships Wedding Planner, Wedding Planner Eastern Townships, Eastern Townships Weddings, Eastern Townships Wedding Planning, Montreal Wedding Day Coordinator, Montreal Destination Wedding, Montreal Same Sex Weddings, Anita Phillips, Creative Expressions, Creative Expressions Wedding Stationary, Montreal Wedding Stationaryneighbours!  What I love about working with Anitia is her total professionalism and how highly regarded she is in the industry.  In addition she really ‘cares’ about the creativity of her clients wedding stationary and customises each piece exactly to match.

What made you become a Stationary Designer?

All of my life I have had a love for paper and all things beautiful!  After a successful career in the Pharmaceutical industry and upon having my two boys, the opportunity to design and create exquisite stationery finally became a reality!  While raising my boys I started Creative Expressions and it has blossomed into the luxury design studio it is today!

How long have you been in business?

I have been in business since January 2004, so it has been 12 years!!  How time flies!

On average how many weddings do you do each year?

On average I do about 30-35 weddings/events a year.

What is the one thing you love most about being a stationary designer?

I love the creative process, working with amazing clients and the opportunity to work with beautiful papers from all over the world every day!

Do you have a specific style or theme?

My style has evolved over the years based upon my clientele.  However, I do specialize in the use of fine papers and fabrics imported from all over the world (Thailand, India, Tibet, Italy etc.)  My style incorporates these fine papers, fabrics, as well as other unique materials into the works of art that each hand crafted invitation becomes.

What are your favourite styles?

My favourite styles are the invitations incorporating suede and velvet, textured or smooth and on the other end of the spectrum, I also love the designs incorporating real wood.  Both of these styles, although very different exude a warmth and luxury that is unique and exquisite.

What are the biggest mistakes couples make when choosing their wedding Stationary?

The biggest mistake couples make when choosing their wedding stationery would be trying to incorporate too many ideas and or paper types into one design.  Many brides and grooms come with many inspirations they have seen online and wish to incorporate it all.  It is very important to remember that each invitation design should have one main focal point.  For example, if we are designing an invitation with a lovely laser cut design then we should focus on that feature, letterpress is beautiful on its own,  etc.

What do you think distinguishes your work from others?

I think that our unique collections of imported papers, our fine print processes, our impeccable attention to detail and exemplary customer service distinguishes our work from others.

The best advice I can give to 2018 brides and grooms is to search online for inspiration, there are so many beautiful images to view and pull inspiration from.  Colours, textures, designs…. let your creative juices flow, skies the limit!   If you come prepared with inspiration images this helps us get to know you and your style quickly and will help guide us in the design process to help make suggestions and capture your vision to make it a reality.

What are the stationary trends for 2018?

Hand lettering and calligraphy is top of the list!  Laser cut is still very popular this year and the use of specialty print methods such as letterpress and foil stamping are also continuing to take center stage.  Then of course, wood has been extremely popular for rustic and vineyard weddings!  My clients love to step outside the box and I am very excited to push the limits with them again in 2018!

Nadya & Stefan’s Country House Wedding

They always planned to have an intimate wedding and it turned out to be just that with 36 members of their close friends and family.

The day could not have been more perfect, and we instilled a small tent for the reception, but the ceremony took place beside a fountain with the back drop of the mountains behind them.

During the ceremony the couple used a “unity candle” and what was special about this was it came all the way from Russia to incorporate the Brides heritage into the ceremony!

Nadya love the strong orange colours and natural tones so we incorporated Burlap Linens with white Napkins and added in the punch of Orange tones with the flowers.  For a small group the couple chose a buffet style menu which they ate a sunset watching the evening change in to night.

The backdrop of the family stone house was perfect for partying under the stars and what I can only describe as an ideal garden wedding!

Montreal Wedding Vendor Interview: Robert Valiante of Ambiance Limousine’s

Posted on 15 September 2017 | No responses

This month we are highlighting Robert Valiante of Ambiance Limousine’s who we trust explicitly and have been working with since I launched my company 10+ years ago!  What I love Montreal Wedding Planner, Montreal Wedding Planning, Wedding Planner Montreal, Montreal Weddings, An English Rose, An English Rose Wedding Planner, Rachel Cripps-Gervais, Eastern Townships Wedding Planner, Wedding Planner Eastern Townships, Eastern Townships Weddings, Eastern Townships Wedding Planning, Montreal Wedding Day Coordinator, Montreal Destination Wedding, Montreal Same Sex Weddings, Ambiance Limousines Montreal, Robert Valianteabout working with Robert and his team is that I don’t need to worry, I trust him and his fleet of cars as he has always given my clients 100% top notch service.  I also love the fact that Robert & Ambiance are flexible in their working style eg. I don’t have to take a car for a minimum of 4 or 5 hours block, and I can book for just pick-up / drop-off services too.  In addition to limousines, they also provide my clients with town cars for the late night pick up at the end of the wedding which is perfect!

What made you start a Transportation company?

As a young man I became involved with the limousine business because of my father in law. I felt an immediate and comfortable attachment to it. Under his mentorship, I learned the “ins and outs” of the business from his experienced leadership.  As time went on, I continued the true and tried tradition of the limousine trade for myself as owner and President of Ambiance Limousines.

How long have you been in business?

I started Diva Limousines back in the early 90’s which led to Ambiance Limousines in the early 2000’s. I’ve been in the business for 25 years.

On average how many weddings do you do each year?

Over the past several years, we’ve been averaging between 80 and 90 weddings a year!

What is the one thing you love most about providing transportation?

I give high value to the satisfaction felt when we’re chosen to contribute and be a part of the wedding couples’ special day.  We see them when they come to visit our showroom and reserve their car(s). We guide them as to what we can offer them according to their budget. We provide the foundation to their day by giving them peace of mind that they will arrive to the altar safely, on time, and in comfort. This reduces the stress level and the couple can enjoy their special day. This, I strongly believe, is what keeps us going strong.

Do you have a special niche of transportation you provide?

The answer to this question is Yes! I came up with this new concept called “Limousin-ing”. In itself, limousining is a niche market requiring a staff that truly understands the subtleties and practicalities of the wedding business. Wedding transportation is supposed to be luxurious. Our cars and Professional Chauffeurs cater to the specific needs of our clients. They’re treated with white gloves, red carpet, and all the fancies they can expect. Whether same sex partners or different nationalities, we offer the same level of service consistent with our motto. Unequalled in service, elegance, and affordability!

What additional touches do you offer?

Montreal is a melting pot of different nationalities from all over. Many times couples fly in their relatives from outside Quebec and other parts of the world. As often as possible, we try to provide drivers that can speak and communicate in their language. We have a diverse group of chauffeurs from different backgrounds and ethnicities. We try to match them up with the contract at hand. We believe that communication is above all the most important thing on someone’s Wedding day.

What is the biggest mistake couples make when choosing their wedding transportation?

In my opinion couples worry on small details that are second nature to us. Although understandable, this line of thinking can wind up costing them money they don’t need to spend.  For example, at times rather than planning a route where 1 car can provide an extra pick up for one of their passengers they believe having an extra car is the answer.  An unscrupulous provider may capitalize on a situation such as this. I for one do not believe in having people spend money that they don’t have to. The limousine company should be their customers’ best friend. Asking the right questions and drawing upon our experiences is something all clients must do. Depending on the circumstance, an experienced limousine company should provide a viable and more economical solution to their situation.

What do you think distinguishes you from others?

I look upon the company as a family. Breaking into our company is not easy as we are selective with who we hire. We have people that have been with the company from the start, since the beginning. That’s 25 years ago! Many companies have a revolving door when it comes to drivers. At Ambiance Limousines, our philosophy is one of stability. It’s comforting to me when clients say we did a wedding in the past of someone they know and give compliments to the driver. I answer them, he still works here!

What advice can you give 2018 Brides and Grooms?

Make your reservations in person. I encourage couples to visit the showrooms to see who they’re dealing with and what cars are being offered. They need to “try it on for size” and feel comfortable with their decision.

What are the new cars / transportation trends for 2018?

We are seeing a trend towards black stretch limos, Navigators and sedan style lead cars. Black is great for pictures and makes for a very classy arrival.

Arielle & Ben’s Riverside Manor House Wedding

Posted on 4 September 2017 | No responses

I started working with Arielle and Ben about 18 months in advance of their wedding when they were living in Texas, during this time they then moved back to Calgary and we planned Montreal Wedding Planner, Montreal Wedding Planning, Wedding Planner Montreal, Montreal Weddings, An English Rose, An English Rose Wedding Planner, Rachel Cripps-Gervais, Eastern Townships Wedding Planner, Wedding Planner Eastern Townships, Eastern Townships Weddings, Eastern Townships Wedding Planning, Montreal Wedding Day Coordinator, Montreal Destination Wedding, Montreal Same Sex Weddings, Manoir Rouville Campbell, Andrew Monia Photography, Six Degrees in Motion Video, Fleuriste St-Elie, La Cabosse d’Or Bakery, A Timeless Celebrations Décor, Elite Sound Waves DJ, Mariages a Bras Ouverts Officiants, Bad Monkey Popcorn, Emilie Levesque Singer, Ambiance Limousinethe wedding remotely for them!

We visited a few places in the Eastern Townships before they chose the Manoir Rouville Campbell in Richelieu which is has beautiful gardens right on the River and a permanent tent for the ceremony to take place.

The ceremony overlooked the river and we created a draped area to arch the couple as well as a customised aisle runner and 4 huge pedestals floral arrangements in Arielle’s colours of Soft Yellow & White….. after the ceremony we moved and re-used the 4 arrangements, 2 for the cocktail area and 2 to frame the sweetheart table.

The cocktails took place on an outdoor terrace which we decorated with various shades of yellow & grey and sizes of lanterns on the ceilings while guests were serenaded to the amazing Emilie Levesque – I must admit there is something just a little bit more special having a ‘singer’ during your cocktail hour!

Guests had fun with the polaroid camera’s during the cocktail hour and we also set up a very cute customised chest for the card box and place cards attached to little bells with chalkboard display notices.

Inside the room it was all soft yellow, white’s and grey – we kept the white linens to keep it crisp and then added in yellow with the napkins and chair sashes and grey charger places.  Instead of a standard round or square mirror, we chose 2 rectangle mirrors which we angled on the tables one side for the flowers and one side for the candles and then decorated the tables with crystals.

Arielle’s mother who was not able to attend the wedding, still took time to make little Hershey Kisses holders in the bride’s colours which were then placed in boxes with more ‘kisses’ as the couples favors.

Guests enjoyed a beautiful 4 course meal and then danced the night away to the sounds of “Elite Sound Waves” and later in the night enjoyed some Pizza and Poutine!

“The decision of hiring An English Rose for their wedding planning services was the best decision we could’ve made! Rachel was there for us every step of the way, recommending the most professional and reliable vendors, taking the time to get to know us as a couple and making sure that our wedding decor was absolutely perfect and reflected our individual style. 

On the wedding day itself, Rachel coordinated every detail and worked with all the vendors to ensure everything was on schedule and was where it should be, she even dealt with last minute weather changes and worked with the venue to relocate the cocktail area to a better place that wouldn’t be so wet due to the rain.

Hiring An English Rose allowed us to enjoy our wedding day to the fullest, as we didn’t have to worry about last minute upsets. Everything was taken care of, so we could take in every moment of this magnificent day.

We are forever grateful to An English Rose for helping us make our wedding day the most beautiful and memorable day of our lives.”

Stefanie & Trevor’s Hollywood Wedding!

Posted on 6 August 2017 | No responses

Stefanie also wanted to have a “Hollywood” theme with a Black Tie wedding and a colour scheme of Red, Black & White.  They also wanted to bring in some of Stefanie’s Jewish background, so did this through the ceremony and incorporated some traditional elements here, with the breaking of the glass and circling the Chuppah.

The ceremony room was decorated with red & white flowers, and two large pedestals and faux red rose balls to surround the couple, we also used lanterns and smaller faux red rose balls to decorate the aisle which we then re-used to add touches to the cocktail room and also the table of honor!  What was also very cute was that the groom wrote a love note on the bottom of Stefanie’s shoe and the Bride wrote a love note on the back of Trevor’s tie!

Everything was on site at the Sheraton Hotel, Dorval which certainly makes it easier for the guests and during the cocktail hour we served a very special cocktail called “The Skyla” named after the couple’s daughter who was born 10 months before the wedding.

Instead of a traditional guest book we created a “Wish Tree” where guests could leave their messages of wisdom and love which the couple will then turn into a book of memories.  We also set up a table with photographs of all their loved ones who were no longer with us and I placed a simple red rose beside them.

In the reception room we kept the design simple with a glitzy beaded lamp in the middle of the table placed on a mirror with a single red rose in the middle, white linens and then bought in black napkins to follow the ‘black tie’ feel.

During the evening the Bride and her bridesmaids had been working hard for months on a choreographed “Spice Girl” medley which took everyone by surprise and blew the groom away!

Lastly while guests were enjoying dinner, we bought in a company to set up a “Popcorn” Bar which guests then treated themselves to before they left.

Olivia & Andrew’s Vintage Vogue Wedding!

Olivia took my breath away when she arrived at the church for the ceremony as she looked like she had just stepped out of a vintage vogue magazine from the 1950’s Hollywood glamour as you can see in the pictures below.  She wore a short veil and a gorgeous vintage head piece.  The top of her dress was adorned in beading with short sleeves and an open diamond shape to the back.  Her long black hair was placed in an up-do and she wore her signature ‘red’ lipstick… hence a vintage vogue bride!  She also carried the most cute clutch bag saying “Mrs” on it!

Their ceremony took place in Vaudreuil, close to the couple’s home in a beautiful catholic church not far from the waterfront and guests then traveled to St-Leonard to celebrate at Le Madison.

Olivia and Andrew chose Black & White for their colour scheme, the bridesmaid’s and mothers were in long formal black dresses and the groomsmen and dads in ‘Black Tie’ so an elegant affair!

Upon arrival guests were greeted by the couple’s table plan which I thought was such a great “Do It Yourself” idea, they bought 2 frames which were about 10 frames stuck together and then mixed their tables with pictures of themselves.  To draw attention to the table plan we also had 2 large black & white balloons either side of the table plan.

With the Bride being Italian and the Groom being Portuguese you can imagine the food was amazing and Food Stations covered the dance floor and around the room – everything from Risotto, Meats, Cheeses, Lamb Chops, Kebabs, Oysters & Grey Goose, to more and more!

Inside the room, we kept it elegant with white linens, black napkins and tall white centre pieces, we also had white chivari chairs with black cushions and we also kept the lighting around the room white to accentuate the beautiful mirrors on the walls.

The bride and groom chose a raised sweetheart table with a White Baroque Table and a Black Banquet, we added a smaller white baroque table and placed the couple’s initials on this surrounded by candles and flowers.  We also added 2 oversized balloons for either side of the sweetheart table.

Olivia with her ‘DIY’ skills also added beautiful lace to regular votives to give them an extra touch and we hand wrote the table numbers on small mirrors for the tables.  The couple continued with using images of themselves for the menus on the tables, as well as creating a ‘Photo Book’ with their engagement shots for the Guest Signing Book.

Guests enjoyed a sumptuous 4-course menu with pink champagne for the toast and the beautiful carrot wedding cake was served as dessert, but don’t forget just a couple of hours after dinner Le Madison outdid themselves with a stunning midnight table.

For the favours they had bottles of Portuguese Red Wine with customised labels as well as sugared almonds on the tables.

Fun was had from the moment guests arrived with dancing throughout the courses with music from Portugal and Italy…. Then Stefan and his team kicked off the party until the early hours of the morning!!
