This is one of those weddings where I had an impossible time narrowing down the images to share with you.
Deandra's sister is somewhat of a matchmaker, and I'm not talking about how she introduced the happy couple. As a matter of fact, she paired up Deandra and myself a few years ago. "You should meet my sister, she designs invitations." Long story short, after an awesome business blind date, I had a fabulous new friend. Shortly after that, Deandra designed my KJ and Co. branding, which I love. I was beyond excited when I got the news that she and Winston were engaged and she wanted KJ and Co. along for the ride.
As you might guess, when a talented wedding industry pro gets married, the wedding is full of incredible details, and an awesome team is assembled. Winston and Deandra's Hamilton wedding at Liuna Gardens, was no different. The paper goods, designed by the bride herself, under the umbrella of her business Simply Sealed were incredible.
Their big day was inspired by Tuscany and was a thrill for guests. Following their beautiful church ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the patio, along with dozens of delicious homemade cookies, and helped themselves to Italian olive oil favours.
Their gorgeous indoor dinner reception had not one, but five cakes by The Dessert Room. Following dinner, guests went back outside, to dance to a live band in the tent, and enjoyed fresh espresso and gelato.
After a peek at K&P's candlelit Spencer's At The Waterfront wedding, you might never know it came together in only three months. For these busy professionals, a wedding planner was a must. They were most excited about an intimate evening surrounded by family and friends, and sweating the details was not their cup of tea. So I dove right in, pulling together the remaining vendors and bringing a design proposal to life.
16 years in the making, this pair made it official at a traditional church ceremony in Mississauga. The wedding reception that followed at Spencer's At The Waterfront in Burlington was perfectly them, including their first dance as husband and wife to an upbeat song by Green Day. Claire Dam Photography captured the day, perfectly.
They trusted Becky of Blush & Bloom and I to surprise them with the florals. An exciting first for me. Two dining tables ran the full length of the room, filled with greenery, florals and mixed candles. Instead of a traditional head table, the bride and groom sat with their friends and family.

After a year of work and interacting with Full Planning clients Alexandra and Jason, I was pretty excited for their wedding day at Earth To Table Farm in rural Hamilton.
Seeing all of our work come together for such a beautiful day had me happy dancing. And a tiny bit emotional as I fluffed Alexandra's gown one last time, seconds before I sent her down the aisle, with her dad at her side.
I hope their highlight video by Outside In Studio gives you goosebumps like it did for me.
