I mentioned I did not have enough time to do all the shopping I wanted to but I was able to pick up a few delectable items – my most favourite treasure…a beautifully, hand-crafted headpiece by David Dunkley of KC’s Hats. I was first introduced to David’s incredible creations at The Wedding Show a couple of years ago – I have been craving a piece since and David so generously let me model a few pieces during The Spring Show. The one I decided on is absolutely stunning & part of his newest collection. I encourage all fashionistas, brides, ladies to make time for a visit with David – every girl deserves one of these creations!!

My obsession with paper continues – I picked up an Invitation Mock-Up Sampler kit from The Paper Place – Judith is so encouraging and I hope to make her proud with my creation (stay tuned for a post on putting together your own invite using this kit) and my little Letterpress Journal from Snap & Tumble.

Looking for Mother’s Day Gifts or reasonably-priced, locally made favours for your wedding – look no further than Liloo at home. The creative and lovely, Sapna Alim, has been busy creating a house-brand line of products. I spent some time at her booth – sniffing, smelling, touching – her products are outstanding. Here is a sampling of what I picked up – Loose Leaf Tea, Aromatic Bath Salts, Whipped Shea Body Butter and handmade, natural soap. I got a medley of flavours and aromas because I could not choose just one! Decadent!

On Saturday, the lounge, dining room and underground at The Drake Hotel came alive with The Wedding Co‘s Spring Wedding Show. This was the first event of this style – where indie meets couture – a one day event showcasing 40 unique, chic & edgy wedding vendors.

I have been working with Catherine on this event for the past couple of months and as always, it was wonderful to watch her vision come alive. These wedding professionals are so creative, talented, unique and absolutely fabulous – I just cannot say enough about them. I had a moment to capture a few images – sadly, my camera battery died before I could make it all the way around the venue. From Top to Bottom: the chalkboard entrance; the transformed lounge space; Loic Gourmet; Ecstatic Accessory Designs; Cecelia Hayes; Papillion Press; Little Party Goers; Avril Loreti; view of the dining room & the beautiful Carla Naylor, Faces By Carla.

This collaboration between Laura K Designs, Allyson Meredith Cakes and Bobbette & Belle features a table display that demonstrates the possibilities of creating a theme by carrying the motif from the invitation onto the cake, table decor and favours. Beautiful!

Not a visitor could resist this display – Naughty Cakes by Konstadin. This lovely lady is talented beyond belief and it shows that she had a lot of fun creating some ‘edgy’ pieces to exhibit at this show. These cakes are great for bachelorette parties and stags.

What a truly fun and inspiring event! I unfortunately did not have enough time as I would have liked to shop but I got some fabulous ideas and will definitely be sourcing out many of these vendors for accessories, favours, decor, sweets, treats and more in the future! Well done to all who exhibited and as always – a pleasure working with you!
