I was married on a warm, sunny day in June at a cute French bistro with 120 guests.
We wanted our wedding to be full of laughter and ultimately a fun time for our guests - so we pursued that as our overall vibe in every decision that we made - from the venue to the speeches and everything else in-between.
We opted to do a full buy-out of a restaurant after we discovered that many of the other venue options we loved would require a hefty pricetag to bring in chairs, tables, glassware, etc. A restaurant already has all of that!
We did some traditional things - like first dances with our parents and a few readings during our ceremony - but we also did some untraditional things too! Things like:
- Our dog Winston walked in the ceremony and was included in our photos
- We up-cycled an old globe to use as our guestbook (which now sits proudly in our living room)
- We pre-recorded speeches and fun questions with each other and our parents and didn't see them until the wedding day
- We hired caricature artists as a fun experience for our guests
- We used a plastic guitar for our guests to perform an extreme 'air guitar' session on as a way to have us kiss, instead of the usual glass-clinking.
At the end of the day however, only one thing matters for your wedding - that you and your partner are in love and with your very favourite people to celebrate it.
I'll teach you how to make your day memorable and cohesive, help you stay on budget and ease your planning pain - 'cause after I went through it all too! I After my own wedding planning adventure, I realized that I wanted to share all of my insights with couples just like you. So what do you say?
Let's Get Wed!
I live and breathe travel - and try to get to new places whenever I can. Some of the destinations that I love include Vietnam, France, Cambodia, Spain and my absolute favourite place on Earth, Sri Lanka.
I share a cozy home with my husband Aaron, my dog Winston and my son, Finn. We love relaxing in our backyard, exploring our city and checking out fun, new food & drink spots.
I've always been into art and design and I love helping others bring their ideas to life. I studied Advertising & Graphic Design and worked in marketing and events roles at companies like Starbucks, Target and G Adventures before venturing out on my own to pursue freelance design and social media consulting.
