I take a regular dosage of Darcy’s Idea of The Day and in today’s inbox was “Choosing a Colour Palette“. I am having some major issues choosing our colours so I thought I would take the quiz…

My results…

You are undoubtedly Classic

Your style is timeless. You go for neutrals and classic colors, and your wedding will be no different. Choose from different shades of whites, pinks, and maybe throw in an accent color such as black. And because your choices are classic in style, you’ll be able to look back on your wedding photos years from now and fall in love with your wedding all over again.

The MS Weddings Quiz suggests the following perfect palettes based on the 10 questions I responded to:

Blue and White

White

Cameo and Black

I can’t say I am sold on any of these palettes but it is a good start based on some of our tastes. The romantic, elegant and bold elements are definitely appealing…

Emily and Paul were married October 31st, 2009 at The Eglinton Grand surrounded by the abundant love of their family and friends. Emily and I went to the same high school and reconnected through The Crane Chandelier Project. Paul, a school teacher and master origami folder, was one of the only people to visit the Crane Booth at The Wedding Show and teach everyone around him how to fold a perfect peace crane. Emily and Paul folded 1,000 cranes for their wedding celebration and then donated them to The Wedding Co’s Crane Chandelier Project.

Emily’s mother, Trish, collected gourds and small pumpkins for the autumn theme. We drilled holes into white pumpkins which lined the aisle for Emily and Paul’s ceremony. All of the table centerpieces were created with love a couple of days before the wedding by a team led by Emily’s mother and they were beautiful! The bouquets and chuppa accents were created by Darrin at Terrain Flowers.

Emily was stunning in an elegant and classy gown from White Toronto. A string ensemble of students from Paul’s school serenaded the guests during the ceremony.

What a way to start the party! Emily and Paul were unveiled (literally, the curtains opened to unveil them on the dance floor) for their first dance together. Amazing!

One of my all-time favourite moments, Paul is a math/numbers whiz, was when Uncle Earl said he could complete a rubix cube on the spot – he did it in less than 5 minutes!!! It was incredible!!!

Hallowe’en could not be ignored so later on in the evening, guests had the opportunity to choose masks and fun accessories out of a tickle trunk – looks like someone made some creative face masks of the bride!

The entire experience with Emily and Paul was refreshing, fun and energetic. It was a true honour to be a part of their special day and this moment in their lives. Happy One Year Anniversary Emily & Paul!!!

A couple of weeks ago, the CEIA, an award program that recognizes outstanding achievement in the Canadian events industry held a gala to announce and award the 2009 winners. A huge congratulations to the always inspiring ladies, Elvira & Cathy of DEVAN for their award in the Best Theme Decor $10,000-$30,000.

Devan is constantly pushing the boundaries of design and searching for innovative ways to bring their clients’ visions to life. They were awarded for their work on an Orient Express (click to see images) theme but here is some of their recent decor work that I had the opportunity to work with their team on. Elvira D’Avanzo, the creative spirit, never ceases to amaze me with her resourcefulness and creative inspirations. I am so impressed and amazed at how she executed this holiday event of mesmerizing fantasy and optical illusion art.

Green Wedding Shoes featured Kristin + Brandon’s Organic Green Wedding earlier this week. Their ceremony set up is so inspired by nature and simple. I LOVE this captured moment – the guests with their cameras out and then the elated bride and groom.

So sweet!
