Dream Wedding

Living in one of the most beautiful places in Ontario there is so much natural beauty that I am inspired by. I love when clients want to incorporate the bay, escarpment or local gems into their special day. A lot of my client wants to have their wedding in South Georgian Bay because it means something special to them. It is a favourite place to vacation, a place where they spend time with family or just a great place to escape to. Here are some inspirational photos of a dream wedding that I would love to create in South Georgian Bay.

Glamping Adventure

Glamping Adventure

I have been dreaming of going glamping for a very long time and this summer my husband surprised me with a mini getaway for our 4th Wedding Anniversary. It was the most beautiful setting for a couples getaway. It was nice to take a step away from the phones and reconnect with nature.

The tent was adorable and glamorous, and the site had many cute little details. One being the outdoor shower & toilet. It might not seem like the most enjoyable experience to be outside when going to the washroom but it was very unique.

The outside kitchen had everything you would need for the perfect outdoor culinary experience.

I love being able to be with my husband and sit around the fire and connect with what is important. Without having the distraction of all the electronics, we spent our evenings playing board games and cards. It really takes you back to a simpler time. If you have been thinking about glamping I would definitely recommend it.

Mexican Adventure

It was such an amazing trip! 10 days in paradise was not enough. This was our eighth time in Mexico and every time we are there we dream of how we could become permanent vacationers (like in the Ben Stiller movie The Heartbreak Kid). It starts when we first touch down and go immediately outside to the airport bar to have the first sips of the margaritas (which always seem to taste the best). Exploring all the quaint little towns and exploring new beaches was a dream come true. Not to mention all the amazing food…octopus tacos, ceviche, shrimp, fish - it was all so good.

I wanted to share some of my favourite photos from my trip! Share some of your favourite spots and memories from traveling to Mexico!

Can’t wait to plan my next trip!

All You  Need is Love and Some Donuts

All You Need is Love and Some Donuts

I had my first experience at a wedding, working with a donut wall this past Fall and it was so much fun!!

When I first sat down with the couple it was one the first things we discussed. We were lucky enough to have a groom that was super handy and was able to construct the wall. Then it was finding a great bakery that specializes in gourmet donuts. Cake by Design was able to put together an amazing section that were both tasty and aesthetically pleasing. There were so many great designs it was hard narrowing it down to just a few. The bakery was able to use the couples wedding colours (navy, gold and pearl white) when creating the design.

The donut wall is a great way to get your guests involved in the night. There were cute and personalized takeaway bags for each guest to take a donut home with them.

Water Front Wedding

Water Front Wedding

Since I moved up here three years ago I had always dreamed of planning a wedding right at the waters edge and with the help of several other people I was able to make this dream a reality. The inspiration behind this shoot was to play of the whimsical elements and the laid back wedding style with an edge.

This style shoot was a fun one and I love being able to collaborate with some inspiring women that are great at what they do.

A lot of couples are moving away from the traditional type of wedding and are really trying to put their own spin on creating something that is uniquely theirs. Brides + Grooms look to create a unique setting by cutting down their guest list, making it a very intimate setting and by bringing in items that are personal to their relationship to enhance the experience.

In this shoot, we wanted to play off a Bohemian vibe while bringing in our own unique flare from being on the Bay. Having our couple go down to the beach and hang out on a pink SUP is not what you would call a traditional style shoot but it totally works.

Anniversary Shoot

melissatwistevenets_weddingplannercollingwood_weddingplannerbluemountain38.jpg

My husband and I were looking to do something different for our anniversary and thought a photo shoot with our new puppy Willy would be a great idea. As many of you already know, Willy joined the Twist gang a few months ago and we wanted to get some great shots of him as a little puppy. My husband and I had been going back and forth for years about getting a dog and finally were in the right place in our life that we were able to dedicate the time so we pulled the trigger. He is the perfect dog for the two of us as he is able to play rough with James and snuggle up with me at night. What a joy he brings to our already amazing life!

Whoever said you can’t buy happiness forgot little puppies

How Renting Your Bridesmaid Dresses Can Make Your Wedding Planning Easier

bridesmaids_birdesmaidcollingwood_bridesmaidbluemountain_weddings.jpg

The process of picking out bridesmaid dresses has essentially been the same since the beginning of time. Long hours are spent at multiple boutiques searching for a dress that everyone can agree on, then bridesmaids shell out lots of $$$ to purchase and alter it, all while claiming they will “totally wear it again!”. The modern bride has been waiting for the industry to make some much needed changes and the answer is finally here. Rental bridesmaid dresses are changing the game! Here are some reasons how renting your bridesmaid dresses will make your BFFs happier and your wedding planning 10x easier.

Cut costs for your ‘maids

You know how stressful it can be wedding planning on a budget, and your bridesmaids have a budget too. So show them how much you appreciate their unwavering support by helping them save some cash! Renting bridesmaid dresses instead of buying them can save each ‘maid up to 60%. That is some meaningful savings! Your girls will be grateful for your thoughtfulness, and most likely be even more willing to go the extra mile to help you out with your planning.

Mix and match with ease

Want to give your bridesmaids the chance to pick a dress that is comfortable and suits them best? But worried about this messing up your gorgeous, cohesive dream day? Don’t worry, at BridesMade, your bridesmaids can choose from tons of styles that flatter everybody, while you can be certain that the colours are a perfect match! Give your bridesmaids the freedom of choice while eliminating any worry that one girl’s pink will clash with another’s.

Save time and energy
