Laura wanted to do something amazing for her hubster’s birthday (and of course for herself too) and can I just say… she effin’ ROCKED this boudoir session?! Gorgeous bright light, vintage-style lingerie, some bubbly and of course some laughter.
Thank-you lovely for being absolutely stunning and trusting me in this awesome adventure!
Braving the cold, Leanne, Dan and myself went on a little adventure to Hamilton Waterfront. Although we didn’t get a chance to get out on the skating rink, we did manage to get yelled at by security for climbing on the ship that’s docked there… and then we were offered our own personal tour of INSIDE. (I think we all thought something terrible was going to happen to us.)

I seriously fell in love with Elizabeth from her very first email. She started it off by complimenting my website at how simple it was, and she thoroughly enjoyed her web experience. I love a girl that can appreciate simple web design! Especially when their wedding website is freakin’ amazing!
These two met through fellow Toronto FC supporters one evening at a bar – their friendship continued to grow with mutual likes, dislikes, and the fact that Ryan laughs at all of her jokes (including the bad ones).
Although we couldn’t play with the TFC, we decided to hang out in their amazing eclectically designed condo – just to get a little cozy with one another – before braving the weather around the corner at Trinity Bellwoods.
I’m kind of a HUGE fan of Mary-Margaret and Brent. How laid-back and awesome they were, how welcoming their family was and how they just know how to throw an amazing little intimate wedding with kilts, fascinators, paper flowers, mini-cheesecakes and AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS poutine. All taking place at the Rosehill Lounge, Toronto.
I met Kristine in design school (YSDN represent!). This girl is a little ball of amazing talent (which you’ll see in this post with her invitation suite she designed!) But this isn’t the story of how WE met, it’s Adam + Kristine’s story.
Adam was playing in a band called The Assistants years ago. Kristine booked them to play her grad show concert fundraiser in February, where she met his band mates but not him. Fast forward to May, and The Assistants were playing with Kristine’s friend’s band. She was working door duty and distributing a stack of The Assistants’ CDs to people throughout the night. Then a random guy came over and said “Oh there aren’t any CDs left” which she thought he was asking as a question. So she said “No, but if you talk to one of the guys in the band I’m sure they’ll hook you up with one”. Then he laughed and said “Kristine, I’m IN the band…” and walked away. Kristine had no idea who he was, but since he dropped her name he obviously knew who she was, so she went on a mission to MySpace the next day to find out.
Of course the music scene is in their blood, so on their first date they ventured to Rotate This, (their favourite record store,) and now six years later, used them for their wedding registry (and for a couple of photos too!)
Kristine’s main criteria when it came to wedding dresses was that she wanted a non-wedding dress, and fell for a polka-dotted Rodarte gown at an end-of-season sale in The Room (Hudson’s Bay). You might have even seen it before on the red carpet worn by Rooney Mara (Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). Less than 100 of these dresses exist in the WORLD. And Kristine ROCKED it.
Kristine even collected terrarium vessels for the amazing creations that Sweet Woodruff worked her magic on and fights MAY have broken out at the end of the night for them…
An amazing day, with amazing pals at Steam Whistle Brewery. Loved every second of it. Forever frenemies, Kristine + Adam!! xo
