Last August, I had the pleasure of planning L&J’s beautiful Fort Garry wedding here in Winnipeg.  The wedding was unique in so many ways, namely:

·         The couple was from Dubai and planned to be in Winnipeg for two days only

·         They planned to invite 3 guests to the celebration (including the sweetest flower girl)

·         Their wedding date was only 30 days away!

These types of full planning opportunities (with a handful of guests) is rare so I jumped at the chance to work with them!  Thanks to the miracles of technology, we met over video conferencing every week to review their décor vision, vendors and timeline of the day.  We settled on soft, muted colours of blush, lavender and ivory with plenty of greens to create a dreamy table scape in the grand hall at the Fort Garry Hotel.  The ceremony was to take place in the loggia in front of the fireplace surrounded by greens and candles and 3 of their close family members – it was perfect!  While I plugged away at the final details, L&J could rest easy and plan their big trip to Canada in only a few short weeks.  On the wedding day, the family feasted on a 3 course meal with macaroon favours from Jenna Rae Cakes. We created custom menus for each guest that doubled as seating cards and accented the chairs with sprigs of lavender and baby’s breath wrapped in twine.

Thanks to our vendor dream team (and lots of help on the coordination and stationery side of things from Ruth at Enchanted Moments), L&J’s wedding day turned out beautifully! I posted their full album here.  I am already looking forward to next summer and all the beautiful weddings to come!
