September has arrived! With the leaves changing comes some of my favorite weddings of the year, one being the perfectly chic wedding of Mackenzie and Jason last fall. I loved everything about their wedding… from their soft color palate of pastel blues, peaches, pink and grey, their unique setup of wedding favors, their individual mini cakes on every table, a ice cream cart for dessert out in the courtyard, DIY photobooth with accessories and a delicious array of hot and cold food items for their guests to eat (I will say it time and time again… I believe guests remember what they eat)! Mackenzie and Jason were as sweet as can be and had such great taste in everything they chose which I felt perfectly represented their darling personalities. Working with couples like this truly makes me love my job!
August is almost over so yet another busy summer comes to an end. I love August weddings for so many reasons and I can’t help but to show off one of my favorite August weddings held here a few years ago for Tracy & Nick. Tracy went above and beyond in putting love into the details and it showed! Her colors were purples and Black and we added chinese lanterns on everything (and I mean e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g!). Check out the amazing Guitar Hero groom’s cake! And don’t even get me started on how much I loved her florals done by our ever so talented in house florist Stacie with La Belle Fleur. Seeing it all come together so perfectly is always such a treat for me and even better is watching the couple as they get to sit back and enjoy their beautiful special day!!
August is approaching fast and it makes me reflect on one of my favorite August weddings… the wedding of Maria & Mark. The couple was from out of state so alot of the planning was done via telephone and email but they each had such a good eye for design, I knew with each choice they made that it would turn out amazing! Their color scheme was pear green with touches of gold/yellows. Very refreshing! The thing I loved the most? The groom totally took care of his bride. He wanted to make sure everything was as stress free on her so ended up making alot of decisions on the wedding, helped her get ready, and as you can tell in these pictures, his love for her just shined on his face when he saw her walk down that isle towards him. It’s moments like this that I will never forget and truly makes me love my job!!
Recently at The Canterbury Events Center, we’ve had some pretty fabulous florals that we’d like to share with you! Our premier vendor, Stacie, of La Belle Fleur truly out-does herself every time!
Currently at The Canterbury Events Center, we are booking up our spring and summer months for fabulous ceremonies and receptions! Many of these ceremonies will take place outdoors, where our couples will speak their vows underneath our beautiful arch. While the arch looks great on its own, we also have amazing décor options to help give your ceremony the right feel!
With your wedding reception, there are a few elements that will make all the difference. One of those is linens. Linens can help set the mood for your reception, whether it be fun or formal. They also provide you with an opportunity to add texture to your event, which enhances the overall effect of your décor. There are several wonderful linen options that are available.
When you first get engaged, it’s one of the happiest, most-fulfilling moments you’ll ever experience. This moment, however, also marks the beginning of one of the busiest times in your life! From the minute you say “yes,” you will be presented with hundreds of decisions, all of which will determine whether or not you achieve your perfect wedding day. “Where do I begin?” can be an overwhelming thought. Here are a few recommendations of things to do when you first get engaged:
