Forest Fairy

A gorgeous ethereal gown with just the right amount of sparkle! The pale blush chiffon looks perfect against the lush forest setting - modern woodland wedding anyone? This fabulous frock is designed by Ellebay Bridal Boutique in New Westminster - a mother and daughter design duo who make amazing custom gowns. Gotta love local talent! Check out their blog to see more :)

wondrous wedding

I had the pleasure of designing wedding invitations for Brett and Ben several months ago for their recent wedding in Victoria, BC. The happy couple met while working in the theatre on board a cruise line - hence the playbill/travel theme. How amazing is it that they had their first date in Italy and were engaged in Brazil?! I also designed table number postcards that featured just some of the wonderful places that these two have visited. Congratulations to Ben and Brett and cheers to many more travel adventures to come :)

Rainbows overhead

How amazing is the simple, yet effective decor for this DIY greenhouse wedding? I love the multicoloured strips of fabric that seem to create a series of floating rainbows on the ceiling! Any volunteers to help me start ripping fabric for next year? ; )

A strangely wonderful party...

Fun (and a little bit wacky!) images styled by Martin Bergstrom. Gotta love those tiger striped trou : )

Can I be a balloon artist when I grow up?

Clearly I don't mean the creepy clown kind of balloon artist ;)

dreamy Dahl kitchen

Dreaming of a big, bright, open kitchen...with some vintage flair and quirky pops of colour added to the mix! I saw this lovely kitchen on the food network show Delicious Miss Dahl and while swooning with delight, I also picked up a new recipe for Roasted Tomato and Thyme Soup. So easy and delicous!
p.s. I used fresh basil in place of the thyme : )
